Sativa and Indica: Wake and Bake or Sleepy-time Spliff
Both sativa and indica strains have a recommended consumption time in order to have the best experience. If you’re looking for a vivid day, sativas helps inspire your inner artist and promotes mental wellness. Indicas relieve the body of daily wear and tear to help ease into sleep. There is no right or wrong way to consume cannabis, only recommendations. Some choose to consume sativa only strains from morning to night while others stick with indica. The only way to find out what works best for you is to experiment responsibly.
When Choosing Between Sativa and Indica, Sativa Can Help Brighten Up Days
If you choose to consume cannabis during the day, a sativa dominant strain will help brighten any task. As you wake, a flowery bowl of the sativa of your choice can help stimulate creative processes and energize the mind. Meditation, yoga or even a brisk walk before heading out for the day can benefit from the uplifting effects of sativas. Once organized and focused, allow the creativity and thoughts of peace to freely flow while practicing yoga, meditating or even while enjoying a brisk autumn walk. Continue to feel at ease with sativa, by enjoying more throughout the day another bowl or an edible.
Use a sativa dominant hybrid for a weekend hike, or yoga retreat, and allow the euphoric effects to expand your experience. For prolonged engagements into the wild, where you can allow your mind to wander, enjoy a hearty combination of coffee, a banana and a medicated muffin from Love’s Oven. Small doses are always recommended, as some edibles can take up to two hours for the effects to settle in, and too much may make your adventure harder than it needs to be. High THC strains, edibles or flower, can help your mindful practice that take you to far out places. Choose to follow, or start, your vinyasa yoga flow with a sativa blend agave tincture in your favorite tea or sit back with a cannabis infused chai. It’ll make your inner trip as much of a journey as your outer.
Indica For Chill Nights
After an exciting day, you may find yourself sore and ready to relax. A high CBD salve or lotion, like Mary’s Medicinals, is your gateway to relaxation. Not much is needed before the effects of the mentholated salve puts your whole body in a total state of calm and makes you forget the long day. From neck aches to back pains, the long lasting icy-hot feel is the perfect segue from a day of fun to a night of tranquility. When it’s time to finally get cozy for the evening, an array of helpful cannabis remedies exist in every form for your pleasure.
Before bed, an indica heavy concentrate can help you count the sheep, and makes for an enjoyable start of the next day. San Fernando Valley, in wax with a vaporizer or dab rig, is handy for when you can finally sink into comfort. Cannabis has been found to be an effective way to help those who suffer from insomnia and other sleeping disorders. As indicas usually have a higher CBD content than the THC loaded sativa, many seek out the pain relieving properties for headaches, sore muscles and to fight nausea. Indicas slow down the mind, releases residual stress and allows the physical body to follow the peaceful mind.
