Indica and Sativa are the two main varieties of the cannabis plant used as medicine. There are many strains that are crosses of those two varieties. Within each of those varieties and crosses there are a huge number of individual strains, each with a different cannabinoid profile and effect. According to anecdotal evidence the Indica strains are a relaxant, effective for anxiety, pain, nausea, appetite stimulation, sleep muscle spasms and tremors, among other symptoms. The Sativa strains are more of a stimulant, effective in appectite stimulations, relieving depression, migraines, pain and nausea. We are now aware of specific strains that are effective for specific conditions and symptoms.


The effect from an Indica strain is generally a boady type effect, relaxing and laid back Indica plants have a heavy effect recommended for evening use.


The sativa dominant strains contain a higher level of THC than CBD which equals a cerebral, soaring effect, more energetic.
