Let’s start at the beginning. Well this really isn’t “the beginning”, but that’s a story for another time. So right now I’ll give you some basic information on the different strains of Mother Natures finest. Things have changed from the 60’s. Now instead of buying a bag filled with stems, seeds and leaves, you have choices. The days of buying an ounce for thirty bucks are also over. I hope this basic information is of some help.
When you need to de-stress and relax, an indica strain will lend a hand. Known for their intense heavy-body effects, you’ll quickly feel your muscles relax and pain ebb away. Indicas are best for nighttime use and are well-suited for indoor growers. These tend to be short, stocky plants native to cooler climates.
Looking for some energy? Sativa strains provide uplifting, clear-headed, and energizing effects. Like a strong cup of coffee, pick up a sativa when you need daytime focus and inspiration. These plants are tall, wispy, and generally well-adapted to warm climates. Expect late flowering times from these cerebral strains.
Edibles are cannabis-infused foods and drinks. Eating infused foods produces a stronger and longer-lasting high than any other consumption method. Be warned, though. It may take a while for your treat to kick in. Expect to wait 30 minutes to 2 hours to feel the effects of an edible. A standard dose of any infused good is 10-15mg of THC.
Hybrids provide the best of both worlds. A hybrid is a mix of both indica and sativa cannabis varieties. Their effects vary from strain to strain. While the strain may feature traits from both cannabis species, the effects will either be slightly more mental or more physical. The overall high and growth patterns depend on each strain’s unique lineage.
