Cannabis EducationProducts Is Indica or Sativa Right for Me?

Jan 30, 2023

If you are relatively new to cannabis use, it can be overwhelming trying to determine which strains are best for you. Here is a quick guide on the difference between indica and sativa strains and what you can expect from each.


Sativa is known for producing more of a mind high, where your thoughts and creativity are stimulated. This is often what people choose when they want to consume cannabis for purely recreational reasons or if they prefer a mind high without the more physical effects.

Choose Sativa if You Want:

  • To feel more creative
  • To be energized
  • The feeling of being high


Indica produces more of a body high, without the same type of mental stimulation as Sativa. People often choose this strain if they want the physical effects of cannabis without the feeling of being intoxicated.

Choose Indica if You Want:

  • To slow down and feel calmer
  • To enjoy the physical benefits of cannabis without feeling as high

Can’t Choose? Try a Hybrid

Hybrid strains give you the best of both worlds and have the effects of both an indica and a sativa. These are a good option if you enjoy the effects of both indica and sativa strains and would like to experience both at once. There are many different types of hybrid strains available, depending on what you are looking for.
