Indica cannabis strains like Sherbert and Star Dawg provide a relaxing feeling and are often used by patients for: insomnia, body pain, muscle relaxation, spasms, seizures, headaches, stress relief, anxiety, and more. A great way to remember this is indica = “in da couch.”
Sativa cannabis strains like Purple Urkle and Afrodite provide a more stimulating, uplifting and energetic feeling, often inspiring creative thinking, deeper focus, and a general sense of well-being. Sativas are also used to fight depression.
Hybrid cannabis strains are exactly what they sound like: plants that are a balance of indicas and sativas.
