I never knew what indica & sativa were

In college 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 aromaed love skunk & others aromaed love diesel fuel. I never really stopped to consider why, then now that I am a medical cannabis patient, I am shocked by our lack of know-how… First, the amount of THC in a cannabis strain is actually different. You can even choose to be severely CBD heavy & hardly get high at all, but only get the medical benefits. Your cannabis can have a uncommon scent or give a uncommon feeling in your body too. That is your choice. A total mind whirl was when I realized there were sativas & indicas. I thought you just smoked weed & felt high. There are 2 mindsets for smoking cannabis. A sativa is good for day time use. It usually pumps you up. You assume energetic, cheerful, motivated & 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 assume exhausted, calm, relaxed & 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 & I never got to try one.
