If you're looking to finish your garden, mow your yard, go to the gym, clean your house, or knock out that list of chores that's been sitting around all year, then you need a sativa strain of cannabis.

If you are high-strung and can never relax, have a hard time falling asleep at night, or don't have much of an appetite, then you need an Indica.

If you're looking to have a pick-me-up to start your day and then something to help calm you down from the stress of the day you need a balanced hybrid.

I’m Calling BS – Smoke it All

This is such nonsense that it makes some people's head spin. Cannabis has the potential to treat each individual differently. Take for example a hit off a joint. When you tell someone to take a sip of wine what does that mean exactly?

What is a sip of wine to them? I've seen a sip of wine being an entire glass for some people versus just a taste on the lips for others. The person who took the taste on the lips might feel slightly intoxicated whereas the person who drank the entire glass and doesn't. Cannabis is a lot like this.

Each Strain Will Treat Each Person Differently

It works differently for each person. A puff off of a joint for one person could provide no effects while for another it could provide a potent high that lasts for an hour.

A Sativa strain may provoke one person to clean their house, while another might get the good night’s sleep they have been wanting.

The same is true for different Indica strains. While one person may smoke an Indica strain and sleep great through the night, it may spark creativity in another and allow them to stay up all night and finish their book.

Don't let the hype about indica and sativa make you miss out on a potentially life-changing medicine. The best advice when trying cannabis is to try it all. Keep a journal and write down the experiences you have with different strains. Only you know what works for you.

Don’t Believe the Hype

When it comes to the hype about Indica and Sativa, don't believe it! That's almost like believing that only high THC cannabis strains will give you a buzz! That such nonsense as well.

The Entourage Effect is very real and requires a full spectrum of cannabinoids. I've gotten lit off of Alaskan Ice that tested 6% THC. I've been smoking 35 years, so I know good weed from bad weed.

Indica or sativa, it doesn't matter. What matters is what works for you.
