Indica vs Sativa which one is best for you?
Indica vs Sativa is a tough question to ask, as what’s best for one person is not for the other. As a general rule Indica plants provide a chilled out relaxed high. Whereas Sativa plants provide an up energetic high that is more of a head high. Indica for bed and Sativa for daytime.
These days modern Cannabis Seeds are rarely 100% Indica or 100% Sativa. Most are hybrids, which means they are a mix of both Indica and Sativa for example Sour Diesel by The Bulldog Seedbank is a Hybrid with 70% Indica genetics and 30% Sativa genetics. This can then be classed as an Indica dominant strain that leans more towards the Indica characteristics.
Indica vs Sativa know your Cannabis strains
Know your strains or spend the nights wide eyed and the days glued to the couch. You’ve heard the phrase “Couch locked” which literally means stuck on the couch due to smoking to much. Lethargy is generally caused by Indica plants that render you un-able to move or at least not wanting to.

Indica plants grow short and squat with wide broad fan leaves of a dark green colour. They produce bud at a quicker rate than Sativa plants and the bud produced is more dense and generally more compact. More useful for the commercial grower looking for big yields

- More of a head high very cerebral and can be psychoactive or trippy

Sativa plants grow massive and gangly with leaves that are thin and petite with a light green colouring. Sativa’s can grow extremely tall and definitely require supporting. Check with each individual strain before growing Sativa’s as height can become a problem. Don’t forget though Sativa’s can be trained to grow along trellises or pruning, cutting and bending can also help keep the height in control. With Sativa buds I would expect a looser bud structure that doesn’t join up fully.
