What are the differences between Sativa and Indica strains of cannabis?


Recommended Posts

Sativa cannabis is native to warmer, tropical climates and grows naturally in Thailand, Vietnam, Colombia, Mexico and even parts of Africa.
In order to cope with long, hot and humid summers, Sativa plants adapt and grow taller, have longer branches and produce looser buds and narrower leaves

Indica plants, on the other hand, come from cooler, drier, and more mountainous regions like Nepal, India, and other nearby regions where summers are cooler and shorter. To cope with these conditions, Cannabis indica developed shorter flowering times and denser foliage and buds.
Thanks to their shorter stature and shorter flowering phase, Indica plants are ideal for growing indoors

I believe that these are morphological descriptors. In either group, early harvest = more heady, later/amber trichs = more locky.

 

This. Along with terpenes will determine high. 

 

Certain terps are more commonly found in each category saliva  or indica.

 

The actual saliva indica thing is just for the different type of plant. Fan leaves. Tall vs short. Region of origin.

It is better to classify cannabis into 4 groups. Gas. Earth. Flower. Fruit.

 

Inside those groups you will find many common terps that produce those indica or saliva high. Fruit and flower generally are what would be considered saliva strains. Gas and earth indica. In fhe end its the terps that determine the kind of high you will have.

There's only one species: Cannabis Sativa L (Linnaeus) - on scientifically proven molecular level.

 

The first description of the plant species Cannabis Sativa L. was made by Carolus Linnaeus in 1753, who was familiar with the hemp plants that were cultivated in Europe [1]. A few years later, in 1785 Jean-Baptiste Lamarck described what he believed to be another species of the genus Cannabis, with plants from India, which he called Cannabis indica [1]. The main difference between the C. sativa plants described by Linnaeus and by Lamarck at that time, responds to the differences between hemp and marijuana

Why you want to take drugs??? Strange 😳

Why always act as if it's very harmful never saw anyone crying over how bad alcohol is and how people shouldn't drink it but no when it comes to weed they all will be like DRUGS DRUGS even though stoners are way calmer when they are high compared to a drank person 🤣

Again you try to divert away from Cannabis.

And....if you're aware what Cannabis is doing in your body....then you should stop it 🙏

Again I know the context but it's just a concern you are raising I am doing the same here also I don't think either alcohol or weed does good so why just have restrictions on weed only?
