Cannabis Flower is the part of the cannabis plant that people smoke. It’s also known as a nug or bud. When it comes to cannabis flower, there are different types. Each type of cannabis flower has a different effect. These types of cannabis flower can be broken down into three main categories: indica, sativa, and hybrids. Continue reading to find out more about the types of cannabis strains.
Indica flowers are known to have more sedative effects and induce relaxing body buzzes. Consider these strains more of a “body high” type. Some symptoms they can help alleviate are insomnia, nausea, and poor appetite. They are typically preferred for night time use, a relaxing day at home, and right before bed. Some popular indica strains include Girl Scout Cookies, Hindu Kush, Afghan Kush, Grandaddy Purple, and others.
Sativa plants typically give users a more uplifting and energetic high. These strains are considered “head-high” type buzzes. They are preferable for daytime use and can sometimes also be hallucinogenic. They’re best used for social gatherings, outings, and events. Some of the symptoms sativas can relieve include anxiety and stress, especially social anxiety. Sativas can also help increase creativity and focus. Popular sativa strains include Durban Poison, Sour Diesel, Strawberry Cough, Jack Herer, Green Crack, and others.
Hybrid plants are typically a mixture of both indica and sativa plants, but generally lean towards one or the other, usually at a 60% to 40% ratio. However, there are some hybrid strains that are perfectly even 50/50 ratios. Since hybrid strains contain both indica and sativa strains, they can have a wide range of effects from easing symptoms of chemotherapy and radiation to reducing anxiety and stress. They can also help with increasing appetite and focus. Some popular hybrid strains include Cherry Pie, Gorilla Glue, Ice Cream Cake, and others.
Depending on what kind of high you’re looking for, the strain you choose should matter. Some fall under the indica label, while others fall under the sativa strains. Then, of course, there are the hybrid strains, which include a little bit of both strains. What’s best for you usually takes some trial and error.
