In university when I was handed a joint or an edible, I never asked any questions. Weed was weed in our opinion. What did it matter? I never thought about how all cannabis is different. I knew some weed smelled like skunk as well as others smelled like diesel fuel. I never really stopped to consider whyâ€¦ Now that I am a medical cannabis patient, I am shocked by our lack of knowledge, however first, the amount of THC in a cannabis strain is absolutely different. You can even choose to be seriously CBD heavy as well as hardly get high at all, but only get the medical benefits. Your cannabis can have a unusual scent or supply a unusual feeling in your body too. That is your choice. A total mind whirl was when I realized there were sativas as well as indicas. I thought you just smoked weed as well as felt high. There are several mindsets for smoking cannabis. A sativa is great for day time use. It usually pumps you up. You feel energetic, happy, motivated as well as are eager to get started with your day. A lot of people choose sativas for recreational use for the fun aspect of it. An indica is the night time, mellow strain. You feel tired, calm, relaxed as well as peaceful. A lot of people smoke an indica in order to sleep well at night or calm their anxiety. Now that I am older, I guess I have only smoked sativas our whole life. I guess indicas just weren’t considered fun enough as well as I never got to try a single.
