Indica vs Sativa
Indica vs Sativa
Indicas and sativas are the two mother genes of marijuana, springing up the wonderful strains that we all enjoy. A world of difference separates them. And those differences are responsible for the diversity in the herb-smoking populace. But dude, whether you prefer indica or sativa, the result is always a peaceful and dreamy spell.
High or Stoned?
Getting high and getting stoned are the two primal choices of a bud smoker.
• High – High pertains to a rather uplifting experience while in a relaxed state. Your mind ventures onto rational and creative planes, leading to frenzied episodes in silence, speech, or through an artistic medium.
• Stone – Stoned, on the other hand, is a powerful buzz that hits your head then overwhelms your torso, for a very relaxing experience, which induces sleep and kills stress and headaches. Potent stone-inducing strains are also used as medical marijuana.
Such is the main difference between the stoney indica and the high-inducing sativa.
From a Grower’s Standpoint
From a grower’s point of view, both the indica and the sativa have pretty distinct characteristics.
• Indica – Indicas are often short and stubby plants with large buds and big leaves, adding up to a great yield come the harvest months. They have a strong musky, sometimes “skunky,” aroma, which builds up during the flowering period, which is a bit shorter as compared to sativas.
• Sativa – These plants are commonly tall and have lots of branches, filled with long, thin leaves. A rather muted scent, which is sweet, fruity, or a mixture of both, gradually develops during the flowering period. During the harvesting season, they produce large yields, but not as consistent as some indica strains.
Much tending is required for the herbs to grow properly, regardless of their differences. Both the indica and the sativa should receive the proper care for them to develop their full flavor and potency. Don’t mind the labor, man. When you start relishing the goods, you’ll experience pure pleasure at its finest.
