Sep 9,2023

The acceptance of cannabis has been increasing gradually over the past few decades. According to a new Gallup poll, fully half of Americans have tried marijuana, and more people now actively smoke cannabis than tobacco cigarettes. Additionally, separate Gallup research has shown that two out of five respondents (40 percent) said that cannabis was not too, or not at all, harmful. That’s 10 times as many people who said that cigarettes were relatively harmless (four percent) and more than double the percentage who said the same about alcohol (16 percent). However, do you really know the cannabis plants and what type of cannabis strains your consumers require? It is not possible to ensure the best possible treatment for a patient by misusing cannabis without knowing what it is. In the ensuing article, we will take you to a deeper study of cannabis plants. Follow me, and make sure your clients get the best cannabis strain.

What is the Definition of Cannabis?

Cannabis is a genus of plants that includes hemp, marijuana, and many others. For this reason, "cannabis" is most often used as an umbrella term to describe both hemp and marijuana. Within the Cannabis genera are many, many different strains, such as Sativa, Indica, etc., each one with a unique chemical makeup. Among more than 1,000 cannabis strains, Sativa and Indica are two focuses of the medical cannabis community for their large quantities and strong drug.



Cannabis Sativa grows in hot, dry climates with long days of sunshine which include Africa, Central America, Southeast Asia, and portions of Western Asia. Sativa plants, such as Acapulco Gold, Panama Red, and Durban Poison, tend to be taller and skinnier, with lighter green finger-like leaves. As opposed to Indica, it matures at a slower rate and can grow up to 12 feet tall.

Generally, Sativa is considered to contain higher doses of THC and lower doses of CBD than Indica. And it often smells sweet, fruity, or spicy due to its terpenes. THC, CBD, and terpenes are all chemical compositions derived from the cannabis plants. As for definition, terpenes are the basis for cannabis' bud aroma, flavor, and even color associated with various types of vegetation; THC is the most prominent cannabinoid in weed which imparts cannabis’ beloved high sensation and its use for treating numerous maladies; CBD, the most abundant cannabinoid in various cannabis and hemp plants, has a wide range of health benefits, both holistic and medicinal.

According to the scientific literature provided by NLM, Sativa has been used for the treatment of rheumatism, epilepsy, asthma, skin burns, pain, the management of sexually transmitted diseases, difficulties during child labor, postpartum hemorrhage, and gastrointestinal activity.

On a mental level, because of its high THC content, Sativa has an uplifting, energizing effect, as well as acting on symptoms of depression and anxiety. In addition, Sativa helps boost the immune system and increases physical energy levels. It is better for consumption in the daytime.



Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Turkey, and Tibet are all native to Indica. It is well known that the climate in these areas is harsh and dry. As a result, Indica plants are short and stout, with broader leaves, perfectly adapted to the local environment, regardless of how hot or how cold it may be. They grow faster than Sativa, and with bushy greenery, each plant produces more buds. This is why illegal growers and traders are keen on them.

Indica strains often have higher levels of CBD, but the THC content isn’t necessarily less. So vaping cannabis Indica or Sativa will not necessarily lead to different effects. After all, the effect comes from their chemical properties and terpenes.

Medically, Indica is known to decrease nausea, treat arthritis, fibromyalgia, and cancer pain, help combat seizures, and treat Lupus and MS. Furthermore, sedation and relaxation are also possible, as well as reduction of intraocular pressure, relief of headaches, aiding sleep, and stimulating appetite. Considering its deep relaxation effects, it is best consumed at night.


Hybrid is a combination of Sativa and Indica strains, possessing many beneficial medicinal properties from both its parents. Its appearance depends on the parent plant. The medical effects can also be controlled by planters.
