If you’re a beginner when it came to growing marijuana, then probably this is the best seed you should begin with. The name sounds obvious, as the name indica means “in the likeness of a flower.” As the name implies, this particular strain tends to move much faster than the others, which means you’ll get your plant in around two months’ time. Since this type can also grow both indoors and outdoors, you don’t need to worry about the perfect outdoor space.
There are a couple of main reasons why some people choose indica over sativa. One is because the aroma from sativa is a bit pungent and tends to linger. By comparison, the smell from indica is fairly fresh and goes relatively less distance. Many people choose the latter for smoking or cooking, whereas many people choose the former for their own personal consumption.
Both of these cannabis strains tend to have very nice taste. They are both pleasing to the palate and not too overpowering. However, the biggest difference between the two is the speed with which they grow. indica tends to be a slower grower than sativa, growing to full height in around 3 months. Some good strains are Diesel and Lemon Haze, although there are many more excellent strains out there.
Sativa on the other hand is a speedy eater. It starts to grow about three times faster than indica, reaching full height in about a month. One of the main reasons for this is because it has higher levels of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. This is the ingredient that makes people feel euphoric.
There are studies showing that when the body is put under a lot of stress, such as chronic pain, it releases more THC than when the body is in a more relaxed state. If the body’s levels of THC are high enough, then it will make the brain thinks that it needs to release an excitability. This causes the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain, namely dopamine and nor epinephrine, which are key to creating the euphoric sensation that sativa give. However, chronic pain will reduce the levels of THC in the body, so it is advised to consult a doctor first if you want to try sativa.
Sativa and indicas also have different effects on the human body. Indicas create a feeling of physical well-being and relaxation. Sativa generates a feeling of mental focus and calmness, often producing a “trance”. In fact, some claim that going into a “trance” while smoking Sativa will induce a healthier state of being. However, the different effects of Sativa and indices are not known for sure yet. Research, however, has shown that there is a strong relationship between the two, with indices being more potent and Sativa having greater calming effects.
Some other common effects of sativa strains are euphoria, a general sense of well-being, and feelings of creativity and spirituality. However, these effects are far from the only ones that this plant can produce. Different strains can be used to produce different effects, depending on the type of crop grown and how it is stored during production. Most sativa strains are generally harvested right after flowering. Harvesting late during the season will result in lower quality strains and a lower likelihood of achieving the desired euphoric effect.
Sativa plants come in many different names across North America. Some of the more common ones include Hops, Hip, Brandywine, baker’s yeast, white wine, and sweetcorn. Different users say that the strains should be stored in a dark place, such as in the refrigerator. When properly stored, the herb should retain its potency for up to six months or longer, which makes them a good choice for long-term use.
