People who use cannabis in edible form should know that certain strains are likely to be especially well-suited for their needs, depending upon the type of high they are seeking. Much as it is with smoking cannabis, the effects of consuming cannabis by mouth will somewhat depend on the strain that you choose from your favorite Denver marijuana dispensary.
Sativa strains offer a psychoactive high that is generally considered exhilarating rather than relaxing. Because of its uplifting side effects, many cannabis users prefer to use Sativa recreationally when they want to improve or increase their energy. Indica edibles, on the other hand, provide users with a more relaxed and calm feeling. It should, however, be mentioned that edibles tend to produce both a stronger physical high and stronger mental high than cannabis that is smoked. Also, edibles tend to provide a more sedating effect than smoked cannabis for some users.
Sativa for Recreational Use
Sativa provides a psychoactive high that tends to be a stimulating, exhilarating experience. Sativa staves off mental fatigue. If you have a tough time going to social events, such as parties, Sativa can help get you into the party mood.
THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is one of the cannabis compounds that allow a better psychoactive effect and Sativa strains have lots. Most budtenders will tell you that for recreational cannabis, a Sativa strain might be your best bet.
Sativa for Medical Use
Sativa is also good for medical purposes.
Indica for Recreational Use
Indica is the go-to variety of cannabis for fans who are seeking a recreational but relaxed high. It’s suitable whether you are planning to spend an evening alone or with friends. Indica edibles relax the nerves and muscles, helping users unwind after a busy day of deadlines, meetings, and other work stress. Its sedating effect puts the brain at rest, giving it time to rejuvenate without any of the nasty side effects that so often accompany pharmaceuticals.
Indica for Medical Use
Indica strains can be extremely effective for many medical conditions.
