Medical Marijuana: The Effects of Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid

Best Hybrid Marijuana Strains.When deciding to select the right medical marijuana strain to help bring relief for your medical condition, it is important to understand the difference of each marijuana species and how it can be helpful for you as a patient. Marijuana is classified into two main types of species: Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa. When you visit dispensaries, you will notice that they organize each of strain type by Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid. A hybrid is a blend of both cannabis species, typically described by the percentage mix of Indica and Sativa. With such a large diversity of strains that have varying amounts of potencies, medicinal effects and aromatic/flavor profiles (known as terpenes), it can be overwhelming to choose the right medical marijuana strain for you.

Patients will find Indica strains to be more potent in THC and more popular for insomnia, chronic pain, appetite stimulation, and anxiety.

With higher THC levels, Indica strains can give more narcotic effects, meaning a full-body medicating feeling that brings great relief but also makes a patient less active and more sedated. This is what is known as the couch-locked effect. A lot of people use Indica strains during the evening or winding down period of the day, using it to help him or her be relieved of pains and stresses and go to sleep easier. The higher the THC, the greater the appetite stimulation effect, so a strong indica will make you hungry. This is also known as giving you the munchies. Indica strains can help with anxiety because it allows patients to become calmer and release stressful thoughts and feelings.

For Cancer Patients who are feeling nausea, loss of appetite, sleep deprivation and depression, an Indica strain can help with anti-inflammation to reduce the nausea, appetite stimulation to help him or her eat, induce sleep so he or she can rest, and give a euphoric boost to help the patient with the heavy-hearted stresses of dealing with cancer. Marijuana’s terpenes and cannabinoids, like THC and CBD, combine to help provide this array of medical benefits for the patient to feel better and live a more balanced, healthy lifestyle. It’s as simple as if you can eat to nourish your body and sleep to help your body recover and rest, you are performing the basic functions to help the body heal, recover and deal with the illness with a more balanced approach. A lot of patients dealing with an illness, only wish to be able to live a normal life. The goal of medical cannabis, and its combination of terpenes and cannabinoids, is to work with your body to bring the sense of balance to feel normal and live healthy again. Overall, the goal of cannabinoids provided by Cannabis Indica is to work with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to provide the patient with an internal sense of balance also known as Homeostasis.

Sativa strains are known to provide more inspiring, energetic, and functional medicating effects.

Sativas will have a more cerebral and psychoactive effect, and a less of the heavy, full-body sedating effect of an indica. Sativa strains test lower in THC potency. Therefore, it allows patients to use it during the daytime and be more functional and active. Unlike an indica, that is used to wind-down because it makes you sleepy, a sativa will keep you medicated for 2-3 hours and lightly fade away without any drag or sleepiness. A patient is able to use a sativa to get more mild pain relief, reduce stress, and inspire creativity while continuing to function normally throughout the daytime. (Photo of Super Lemon Haze) Sativas can be known for functionality but its psychoactive effects can vary between some that are more energetic and racy to some that are more calming and focus-driven to some that can be very spacey and dreamy. It is important to look up the Sativa strain type to understand the type of daytime activity you are using it for. If you are about to exercise or go on an active adventure, or play some music, you may want to use a more energetic strain like the Green Crack or Sour Diesel. But if you are working on your computer or using it to help with anxiety relief, you may not choose the Green Crack because it is too racy and sitting still may increase the paranoia effect which can be uncomfortable. There are sativa strains like Jack Herer or Mello Yello that will help temper anxiety and keep yourself focused and functional during the day while still providing relief. Some sativas are very high in THC and can have an amplified psychoactive effect, making a patient feel spacey and dreamy like the Super Silver Haze or Dutch Treat. This type of sativa may be great for hanging out at the beach or relaxing at home throughout the day, but not for focusing on computer work or precision-driven tasks. Sativa strains do provide a boost of euphoria and inspiration that can be helpful for patients with depression who can use it to pick up their spirits and motivate them to be more active and happy.
