There are two types. We have listed the differences between Indica and Sativa cannabis plants to help you select the best seeds for you. Cannabis Indica Lam and Cannabis Sativa L. are used to distinguish the two distinct types of cannabis. These terms were first used in the past when there was no landrace genetics within the Cannabis genome. These taxonomic terms have been shortened to Indica or Sativa. These terms are confusing and misleading for casual users, new medical marijuana users, as well as everyday stoners.
These two species have many differences: From their appearance to the effects they produce when eaten, to how and where they grow.
Indica, Origin of Sativa
Each marijuana subspecies has its own adaptations. Cannabis Sativa can be found in the jungles of Mexico, Thailand, and Colombia. They are more exposed to sunlight and do not suffer from seasonal changes. Indica can be found in the Hindu Kush area, a region of mountains that spans over 800km. Here you’ll find Afghanistan, Pakistan, and North India, as well as China. It’s quite cold.
Characteristics of the Indica and Sativa plant
Sativa marijuana plants can grow to a height of approximately 3 to 5 meters. Because of their large size, they can be grown outside. They have long, thin leaves. They bloom for approximately 14 weeks. The Indica plants produce more buds that the Indica but they have a higher yield and higher resin content. Their weight once dried is lower, however, because they are usually less dense.
Indica cannabis plants grow taller than Sativas. They can reach up to 2 meters tall, have fewer buds, and are heavier than the Sativas. Indica marijuana plants have thick, long leaves. They have a stronger smell than Cannabis Sativa.
Indica/Sativa dominant hybrids
Hybrid can cause confusion as it isn’t 100 pure landraces. This is why hybrid varieties are rare. If a variety has a 70%-30% ratio in one of its trends, it is dominant. Non-dominants are those that have a ratio lower than 70/30.
What is Delta 8?
There are many chemical constituents in cannabis. Cannabinoids are another name for some of these cannabinoids. They are linked with the endocannabinoid receptors in the body and cause a wide range of mental and physical effects. THC or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (D9-THC) is by far the best known of these cannabinoids, but it is certainly not the only one. Delta-8-THC (D8–THC), its close relative, is also one of the most common cannabinoids found in marijuana plants. There are, however, several key differences.
The growing conditions can affect the THC content. For greenhouse crops grown in controlled conditions, it can even reach 20. THC is inhaled into the bloodstream. THC attaches to tissues rich in lipids such as the brain. THC can have an effect on the human body through CB1 and CB2 receptors.
Particularly at the peripheral level. Although THC isn’t visible in the blood for at most 2 to 3 hours after inhalation, research has shown it can be detected in the blood.
It was found in many brain structures and remained there for hours. It is for this reason that it is so important for the central nervous system.
