Sativa vs. Indica – it may not be what you think.

Sativa is a category of cannabis strains that are supposed to be uplifting and energizing. 

Indica is a category of cannabis strains that are traditionally grouped as giving a relaxing and “chill” mood. 

However, many cannabis experts say that is not always the case. That in fact some Sativa strains can make you tired and Indica yielding an active mindset. 

So how do you tell what works for you?

Our suggestion is to try various strains and see which you like with how it makes you feel. Record your cannabis trials and take particular note of the dominant terpene in your favourites. 

The idea is to find the strains and brands that work best for you. 

You can also experiment mixing strains to attain your optimal experience.
