Cannabis Class: The Difference Between Indica & Sativa

There are a variety of ills that the user may cure of medical marijuana, but this is no panacea. There are arguments from both sides as to whether or not smoking does or does not damage the body. Either way, it’s an interesting topic for debate, and there are many unanswered questions since research is limited.

Cannabis Class: The Difference Between Indica & Sativa

The topic of medical marijuana or where to find it isn’t the issue here. Nor will we discuss its benefits, negatives, legalities, etc. This article is concerned strictly with Indica versus Sativa as well as their effects on the human body. Which one might be beneficial for your ills, and which one you should avoid.

Marijuana comes from the Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica plants. Two different flowering plants in the Cannabaceae family. Both contain psychoactive properties that alter normal brain function when ingested or inhaled. They can be consumed by smoking dried buds or drinking a tincture made from boiling it a solvent such as water or alcohol.

The main difference between these two species is in their chemical composition.

Each contains a different amount of cannabinoids that have various effects on the body when ingested. Cannabis Sativa has a higher THC content, while Cannabis Indica has a higher CBD content. THC is the primary intoxicant that gives users that classic ‘high’ sensation. CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive properties and can counter or reduce some of the adverse effects caused by too much THC consumption.

Both Sativa and Indica are native to Asia, but each has been transplanted worldwide. Cannabis Sativa can grow into a tree that can reach over 20 feet in height; Cannabis Indica only grows to about 4 feet. The leaves on Sativa are wide and thin with serrated edges; the veins pattern visible. The indica leaf is broad at the base, smaller up top with smooth or sometimes jagged edges with dark veins.

The seeds of these two species are readily available on the internet and in some parts of the world.

They can also be purchased at nurseries or garden stores. Seeds for Cannabis Sativa will produce plants that grow thin leaves with long, slim buds. Seeds for Cannabis Indica will produce short bushy plants with fat round buds covered in resin crystals known as trichomes.

Cannabis Sativa is known for inducing mind-altering effects that are uplifting. The user will feel happy, excited, and talkative when partaking in this strain. This could be beneficial to the depressed, socially anxious, or apathetic who want a mood boost. Sativa may also produce an unpleasant sensation in some users that are often described as ‘paranoid’ or anxious.

Shake weed is different from Sativa, so it must be made from one of these cannabis strains.

When people look for cannabis concentrates or cannabis seeds, they might only hear the word Cannabis. In reality, there’s a classification system called Legalization that will tell you if your herbal buds can be used as medical cannabis or if they’re considered a controlled substance.

The most popular Cannabis species are the Indica and Sativa Species. These plants have been selectively bred to deliver certain effects, be they recreational or medicinal.

– Shake Weed is also known as “street weed” or “dirt weed”. Shake can be any sort of cannabis, often is loose material from bags. The shake consists of ground-up buds and leaves. Shake is sometimes considered a lower quality product because it usually has no trichomes on the bud. Shake Weed tends to be dryer pieces that have been broken apart from larger nugs or buds. Shake is very popular in the Netherlands where consumers tend to buy their cannabis by the gram. Shake Weed is usually sold at a lower price point compared to whole nugs or buds.

– Sativa Cannabis Strains are popular among marijuana users because they provide an energetic “boost” that many people would call trippy or psychedelic, but in reality, has to do with the effects on the brain caused by the chemical compounds THC and CBD. Sativa strains are often best for tasks that require focus while weed is not as good for physical activities because it provides a cerebral, spacey feeling that can be described as mind expansion.

– Indica Cannabis Strains tend to give users a relaxing body high and a mellow, sedative effect which makes them perfect for relaxation, stress relief, and pain relief. Indica Strains are great for nighttime use because they tend to be very sleepy and lethargic which is perfect if you just want to be done with your day after a hard time at work or school.

Shake weed can also potentially harm your lungs if you’re not careful with your method of smoking.

Shake Weed can always be used in a pipe, bong, or joint but Shake Weed tends to stick to metal screens and doesn’t burn well when rolled into a joint. Shake weed is very versatile because it works for so many different uses. Shake weed can be used in cooking, baked goods, and a number of other cannabis concentrates. Shake can also be used to make a cannabis tincture which has been popular among medical marijuana patients for decades because it provides a sweet, herbal taste that is not as harsh on the throat or lungs as smoking might be.

Shake weed is great for beginners who wish to learn about the effects of cannabis or who are searching for the best price possible to pay for Shake Weed.
