What is an Indica Strain

The legalization of cannabis is continuing to spread throughout the United States, with dispensaries popping up left and right to keep up with the demand. Have you been thinking of venturing into one of these dispensaries to experience this exciting movement for yourself? Mile High Dispensary is here to prepare you for what you should look for.

If you’ve never been to a dispensary, buying cannabis can be intimidating. There are endless options to choose from that will depend on your preferences. The two most popular types of cannabis you’re likely to come across are Indica and Sativa. Although these are not scientific classifications (all cannabis is Cannabis sativa), since the 1980s these terms have come to distinguish the effects of different types of cannabis. They sometimes even differ in appearance, with Indica plants distinguishing themselves with their broad, dark green leaves.

The effects commonly attributed to “Indica” varieties are mellow and relaxing. Indica generally is felt throughout the whole body, sometimes producing a sedative-type effect known as  “couchlock.” These effects make Indica a popular option for those looking to ease body tension, soothe achy muscles, and experience a chill-out sensation. 

One way to remember this strain is it will leave you in-da-couch. Prepare a nice comfy spot with a blanket and some snacks. Since Indica varieties tend to be so relaxing, we typically recommend you use them as your nightly cannabis option before you head to bed. 

You can use other varieties, like Sativa, throughout the day for more energizing effects. Being knowledgeable of the different types of cannabis will help you experience the benefits in a way that works for your specific lifestyle. Mile High Dispensary is always a trusted resource for navigating these experiences and helping you know the facts.
