Indica Vs Sativa

Indica Vs Sativa The Difference Between the Two Cannabis Plants

We sometimes receive calls that will ask about what type of weed should they order?  Customers want to know what the pros and cons are with marijuana Indica Vs Sativa. The answer would be depending of what kind of effect you want to experience when you smoke weed. We usually have a variety of Sativas and Indicas available on our web site. So you will ask, what is Sativa and Indica?

Today’s article will let us distinguish the difference between an indica and sativa type of weed.

To start, indica and sativa are the two major types of cannabis plants. When the two types are mixed, a “hybrid” type is formed and each types has different effects on body and mind.

LOOK and TASTE

Indica typically grow shot and wide while Sativa grow tall and thin. Indica plants are better grown indoor because they grow short and Sativa are better grown outdoor because it can get as high as 25 ft. in height. Indica’s flowering time is shorter, about 8-12 weeks while sativa’s will take about 10-16 weeks to grow.

indica vs sativa

Indicas have fat fan leaves, where each leaf segment nearly touches each other or even overlaps a little. Sativa leaves look more like thin little fingers.

In terms of taste, Indicas are sweet and fruity while sativas are earthy and piny.

Buds:

The dried buds are are a little bit more difficult to differentiate because they might look like hybrids but once you know the basic features of each type, in a way, you can make an educated guess as to whether or not your strain is indica or sativa dominant.

Sativa’s buds are usually long, less dense, wispy bud or fluffy, often with red or orange coloring and have a sweeter or lighter aroma.

Indica’s buds are short, heavy, compact and dense, often purple coloring and have thick pungent aroma.

 

GEOGRAPHIC ORIGIN

Most indica strains originated from the Hindu Kush region of the Middle East like Turkey, Morocco and Afghanistan while most sativa strains originated from those countries near the equator like Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Southeast Asia.

It makes sense when you want to distinguish each strain when it comes to the name of the weed. Indicas usually have Kush at the end while sativas have Haze.

Recreational Marijuana

Last week in Toronto multiple raids took place, confiscating large amounts of recreational marijuana and edibles. The cannabis shops that were involved were claimed to be selling for recreational use.

This raid resulted in 71 criminal charges, and 90 people were arrested.

Police Chief Mark Saunders said that these shops were a general  health concern by not having the needed information in regards to thc content, or where the marijuana and products came from.

There are 18 known dispensaries that are legally working under the health Canada act and will remain to be open for operation.

recreational marijuana protesterMr and Mrs emery are fighting for recreational marijuana use and are fighting for legalization.  Jodie posted on social media today about the queen street raid last week. Jodie and her husband mark Emery are protesting and are still providing cannabis for recreational use for users above the age of 19.

Cannabis Culture was one of the shops that was involved in the raid last week. They have decided to continue operating their dispensary and they will not give up on providing recreational users with the medication they need.

I can hardly wait for legalization to take place.! To know that people are getting criminal charges and being arrested over marijuana is outrages. I am very appreciative to those that are speaking up and fighting for the legalization. without people standing there ground and continuing to do the right thing  by providing marijuana to the sick and healthy our rights would not be herd.

with legalization just around the corner Mr and Mrs Emery are “refusing to be bullied ” by law enforcement.

Toronto Dispensary Raid “Project Claudia”

Toronto Dispensary Raid

 

 

Thursday May 26th in Toronto Dispensary Raids took place in Kensington Market and on the Danforth. With warrants on locations, police officers forcefully gained access, confiscating  269 kilograms of dry marijuana, as well as other THC products. police charged 186 people as well as making 90 arrests.  Complaints had been made that these shops were causing a “broad impact ” on the neighboring area close to location. The target was on dispensaries that were claimed to have been distributing marijuana products that did not comply with the  marijuana-for-medical-use regulations.

While some bystanders made commits indicating that this was a good thing to have happen, others were not happy to have witnessed the Toronto raid take place.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion in regards to this situation. Whether you agree or not, personally i dont think it was necessary to make a scene by smashing shop windows.  For those that used these shops to get their medication from, they are now forced to go else where. Having these shops open to the public allowed marijuana users to get their THC from a safe and reliable source. Having a place to be able to get your medication from is crucial for many people, not just marijuana users.

In these kind of scenarios its been voiced by citizens that this is a waste of authorities’ time. That they’re not putting their resources to any good. Some people believe that there are more serious things happening in Toronto that should be addressed before taking action the way the have . Actions like these have left some people with disappointment.

Before the Dispensary raid to place, Notices were given earlier on this month to 78 property owners out of the 83 known medical marijuana dispensaries. Contravening the city’s zoning bylaw, these dispensaries were informed in the notice.

If it wasn’t for events like 420 protests or people gathering to voice  their preference towards marijuana,  we wouldn’t have legalization. This is going to be a long going process to have legalization, as well as a costly matter. This is worth speaking up, and fighting for!

I have a strong opinion towards marijuana, and the good it brings to people. It has so many things to offer and not just smoking and getting high, the marijuana can bring so much more to the table!
