Plant Description: Sativa plants are tall and slender with finger-shaped leaves. They can grow over 12 feet and take longer to mature than other kinds of cannabis. Typical CBD to THC Ratio: Sativa often has lower doses of CBD and higher doses of THC.
The rule of thumb that often applies is that sativas are uplifting and energizing, while indicas are more relaxing and soothing, but it’s more complex.
Individual plants produce varied effects, even within the same type of cannabis. It all depends on the chemical design of the plant and the cultivation technique used.
What is the true difference between sativa and indica?
Strains labeled indica tended to have higher quantities of the terpene myrcene, which is thought to contribute to sedation and a more intense “couch lockdown” effect.
On the other hand, strains labeled as sativas had higher amounts of sweet and herbal terpenes, such as farnesene and bergamotene.
