Indica vs. Sativa: Which One to Go With
If you end up with great ideas you have a sativa and if you end up in the same spot for hours without realizing it you have an indica. While both can posses a fruity flavor, sativas lean more towards an ammonia type taste while indicas are more skunky.
Also each type of marijuana serves a different function. The team at Leafly put together a great database that goes over all the different strain and what they are best for. Whether you need strains for pain, depression, stress, anixety or even as a sleep aid you can find the right strain.
In the past we didnt have the technology or research that can help us understand each strain for it’s true capabilities.
For those of you who don’t know, sativas give you more of the head high and indicas produce more of a body high. If you just wanted to smoke a bunch to figure out what you have it can get you the same results we have provided.
