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.


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.



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.




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.

Is CBG The Ultimate Cannabinoid?

The Next Generation of Medicinal Cannabis: High-CBG Strains

Cannabigerol (CBG) happens to be responsible for most of marijuana’s medical effects, CBG works behind the scenes, which scientists have only recently started to investigate.

Cannabigerol, a small non-psychoactive component of cannabis, shows significant promise as a treatment for glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, colon cancer, Huntington’s Disease, skin diseases, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, antidepressant, etc, etc,  but its mostly unavailable in the medical marijuana market.

All the major cannabinoids in marijuana come from cannabigerol (CBG); THC and CBD – the two most common chemicals in marijuana – and other minor cannabinoids all begin as CBG. CBG is non-psychoactive and is quickly converted to other cannabinoids by enzymes in the cannabis plant, which explains the low concentration of CBG in most strains. CBG gets turned into THC, CBD or CBC almost soon as it gets made. Since it’s the precursor for the major compounds, very little of is left over in mature flowers.

Besides its role in forming other cannabinoids, CBG has a number of important medical effects of its own.
CBG inhibits the uptake of a chemical in our brain called GABA – something CBD also does. “When GABA [uptake] is inhibited, you actually have muscle relaxation and you have anti-anxiety effects, so it appears to promote similar effects that CBD has. It also appears to have anti-depressant and some modest anti-fungal properties.”

Just recently in January 2015,
( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25252936 ) researchers discovered that CBG had neuroprotective effects in mice with Huntington’s Disease, a disease characterized by the degeneration of nerve cells in the brain. CBG improved motor skill deficiencies significantly and preserved neurons against toxicity.

In 2014, a study was conducted into the effect of CBG on cancer. The study revealed that cannabigerol can prevent the progression of cancer cells formed in the colon. CBG slowed down progression of colon cancer in mice. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25269802 ). Another new study published in a recent issue of the journal Phytomedicine, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis-based medicines may provide a cure for colon cancer.

Evidence also suggests it has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects as well. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2823359/ Cannabigerol is perhaps most widely recognized as an anti-inflammatory cannabinoid.

It’s been known since at least the ‘80s that CBG can help treat glaucoma by relieving interocular pressure. Researchers writing for Experimental Eye Research gave rats and cats CBN and CBG, finding that chronic administration of these cannabinoids lowers ocular tension considerably.

Medical marijuana patients have access to high-THC and high-CBD cannabis, but what about high-CBG strains? They are rare, but they exist. Narrow-leafleted drug strains from the Indian-subcontinent, were found to have slightly higher levels of CBG than others. Relatively high amounts of CBG can be extracted from budding plants about three-quarters of the way through flowering. Testing of industrial hemp has found much higher levels of cannabigerol (CBG) than most strains of cannabis.

CBG-only strains will soon be as available is CBD cannabis. Hybridization between different types of strains will allow patients to use medicinal cannabis tailored to their needs and preferences in a way people only can dream of today.

Roger in the Haze

If you are familiar with weed, then chances are that you have heard of the Haze strain at some point in time. It is highly sought after for its uplifting, euphoric, cerebral, and even psychedelic mental experience with almost no ceiling to the buzz while allowing the user to remain physically active. It has been used a staple in a number of hybrids. The Haze family line is one of the most THC-potent strains that cannabis has to offer.

Haze refers to a Cannabis sativa-dominant strain known for its psychedelic effects, sometimes referred to colloquially as “ampheta-weed” for their uplifting qualities. Despite the uplifting powerful effects for which the Haze strain is known, it can be hard to come by. This is largely due to the the amount of time required for a Haze plant to be ready for harvest. It often takes as as long as 14 weeks of flowering before a batch of haze can be processed. The resulting flowers can be well-worth the wait, however, which is why Haze varieties are still popular in the European cannabis market. Because of its long flowering times (often double that of an indica based strain) and tall stature, haze is rarely seen in its pure form but instead is a popular choice for breeders and is the parent to many prized subset strains.

Very popular in the 70’s, it nearly became extinct in recent years as growers switched to easier varieties. Many seed banks still offer what is supposedly the Original haze but many have been “Tainted” with Indica genetics, or are just a similar strain, aptly named. Dutch hazes especially are often crossed with Indicas, due to the often shorter growing seasons.
The genetics of the Haze sativa first took root in Santa Cruz, California during the 1960s where long growing seasons accommodated her lengthy flowering cycle. Despite the buzz, Haze seeds remained scarce for years until the late 1970s, when famed breeder Sam Skunkman started creating and refining his own batches. With a flowering time from 12 to as much as 16 weeks, the Original Haze earned a reputation as a finicky, difficult plant to grow, and many preferred planting Skunk and Northern Lights seeds instead. Since then, Haze has been the proud parent of countless hybrids around the world passing on it’s genetics from Mexico, Colombia, Thailand and India. Because most Haze strains have a long flowering period, being mainly cultivated in inter-tropical climates or indoor grow rooms.

It should be noted that there are a variety of Haze strains, typically referred to by the region from with it originally stems from. Nonetheless, one the most famous of these is often referred to as “Super Silver Haze.

The buds, as with most pure sativas, are usually small, spaced out, skinny, and long. The original Haze is well known, along with many other sativas to produced very fluffy buds. Haze is also famous for its unique smell, taste, and strong “Psychedelic” effect.

Very popular in the 70’s, it nearly became extinct in recent years as growers switched to easier varieties. Many seed banks still offer what is supposedly the Original haze but many have been “Tainted” with Indica genetics, or are just a similar strain, aptly named. Dutch hazes especially are often crossed with Indicas, due to the often shorter growing seasons.

Super Silver Haze marijuana seeds will wind up producing one of the most popular strains of marijuana that you can find. Super Silver Haze is taken from several other popular strains including Northern Lights and Skunk. It is technically sativa-dominant, and you’ll see that in the formation of the plant, but the smoke tends to reveal its latent indica characteristics. In any event, it’s certainly one of the most beloved and interesting strains of marijuana available to you.

As noted above, Super Silver Haze tends to produce much more body-oriented buzzes. The smoke tends to be relaxing and sleep-inducing rather than energetic. Still, Super Silver Haze is also valuable because it can clear your head and produce entirely different states of mind and being. It really gives you the whole package, and the best part is that it tends to last for large chunks of time. There’s certainly a nearly divine feeling of pleasure that you get while smoking Super Silver Haze.

The main draw of the Super Silver Haze strain is right in its name. Super Silver Haze marijuana tend to be plants that are covered in silvery THC glands that are pleasing to the eye. The buds are long and sticky and the THC level is consistent at around at least 21%.

The clear-headed, body buzz most associated with Super Silver Haze is ideal for a number of medical conditions. The strain has been shown to help with everything from depression to muscle cramps. Super Silver Haze’s lasting effects also allow you to achieve relief for long periods of time. So, if you have chronic pain, you can use Super Silver Haze to mitigate it throughout the day.

Marijuana could help prevent and treat the killer Diabetes

Marijuana May Help With Diabetes

Are you Fat ?

Americans have become fat, plain and simply, fat. Between the 1960s and the 2000s, Americans grew, on the average, an inch taller and 24 pounds heavier. The average American man today weights 194 pounds and the average woman 165 pounds. The growing girth has led to the creation of special-sized ambulances, operating tables and coffins as well as bigger seats on planes and trains. Almost a third of American children and teens are overweight.

Obesity in America: It’s Getting Worse

Nearly two-thirds of adult Americans are overweight or obese, just plain fat. Unhealthy, diets and decreased physical activity, the prevalence of obesity in the United States has more than doubled over the past four decades.

Previous studies have found lower prevalence rates of obesity and diabetes in marijuana users, participants who reported using marijuana in the past month had:

=16 percent lower fasting insulin levels
=17 percent lower levels of insulin resistance
=higher levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C)
=smaller waist circumference

Could Marijuana Help in Weight Loss?

The American Journal of Epidemiology has found that obesity rates are lowered by roughly one third in those who smoke weed just three times weekly with findings concluding that 22% of those who did not smoke marijuana were obese, compared with just 14% of the regular marijuana smokers. Perhaps marijuana smokers are cognizant of the fact that smoking causes the munchies and so they act accordingly—maybe allowing some extra indulgence while “high” but reverting to a more healthful lifestyle in between “sessions.”

Evidence shows that cannabis can have the following benefits for diabetes patients:

stabilizing blood sugars (confirmed via “a large body of        anecdotal evidence building among diabetes sufferers”)
-anti-inflammatory action that may help quell some of the arterial inflammation common in diabetes
-“neuroprotective” effects that help thwart inflammation of nerves and reduce the pain of neuropathy by activating receptors in the body and brain -“anti-spasmodic agents” help relieve muscle cramps and the pain of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders – weed acts as a “vasodilator” to help keep blood vessels open and improve circulation.

contributes to lower blood pressure over time, which is vital for diabetics substituting cannabis butter and oil in foods, “benefits cardiac and arterial health in general”
-it can also be used to make topical creams to relieve neuropathic pain and tingling in hands and feet
-finally, cannabis helps still diabetic “restless leg syndrome” (RLS), so the patient can sleep better: “it is recommended that patients use a vaporizer or smoked cannabis to aid in falling asleep.”

Netherlands named healthiest country in the world

The Netherlands has been seen as a bastion for the cannabis smoker for a very long time. It is where tourists, students, medical users and anyone looking for a bit of enlightenment make a pilgrimage to in order to sample  some of the wonders of marijuana. But did you know that weed is not technically legal there? Through loopholes in law and by public consensus, the governing body of the Netherlands operates under a policy of tolerance. This means anything that is classified as a “soft drug” by the government, (which cannabis is), doesn’t involve the pursuit of individual prosecutions for personal possession, Personal use is tolerated.
And the U.S. didn’t even make the top 20. The Netherlands came out on top because of low diabetes rates.

The Netherlands has long been at the forefront of offering medical marijuana to its citizens. Medical marijuana was legalized in the Netherlands for use in pharmacies in 2003 and since 2007 several pharmacies have specialized in medical cannabis. They buy medical cannabis in bulk and can therefore  deliver the products for a lower price. Three types of medical cannabis are available through pharmacies: Bedrocan, Bedrobinol and Bediol. In 2005, two years after medical marijuana was legalized in the country, 60% to 70% of Dutch physicians regarded medical cannabis sufficiently socially accepted and would prescribe it if asked for by a patient.

Cannabinoid receptors, located in the brain, are part of the Endocannabinoid system which is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, etc.

Cannabis helps stabilize blood sugar.

Both types of diabetes can be helped by weed. In Type 1 diabetes, a lower fasting level might eliminate the need for an insulin injection at that time. While injections wouldn’t be completely eliminated, it could decrease the number needed per day. For those with Type 2 diabetes, being less resistant to the insulin could help control the advancing of the disease by  improving the body’s ability to manage sugar levels naturally. Marijuana protects from inflammation of nerves Many cannabinoids act primarily to inhibit Hormone-like compounds  (prostaglandins) which are produced by the body and are responsible for inflammation features, such as swelling, pain, stiffness, redness and warmth, several other cannabinoids in addition to THC were able to stimulate the synthesis of prostaglandins in cell culture a group, a physiologically active lipid compounds having diverse hormone-like effects  Marijuana provides powerful anti-oxidant properties.This means that cannabis is an excellent anti-inflammatory that lacks the side effects of common diabetic drug which can have very serious side effect..

Cannabis is also a neuroprotective.

Cannabis is also a neuroprotective. It is believed that much of  problem with the nerves, usually the ‘peripheral nerves‘   comes from the inflammation of nerves caused by glycoproteins in the blood that trigger an immune response. Cannabis helps protect the nerve covering from inflammatory attack. Cannabis also lessens the pain of neuropathy by activating receptors in the body and brain. Some components of cannabis (perhaps cannibidiol) CBD’s act as anti-spasmodic agents similar to the far more toxic anti-convulsants like Neurontin. This action of cannabis helps relieve diabetic muscle cramps and GI upset. Most diabetics learn very early that maintenance of good blood sugar is most easily achieved when patients or their caregivers cook as opposed to eating fast food or prepared foods. Cooking not only provides superior nutrition necessary to treat diabetes but also is a form of physical therapy for diabetic hands that suffer from neuropathy. Cannabis may also be used to make topical creams (mixed with aloe vera and/or emu oil) that can be applied directly to hands and feet affected by neuropathic pain and tingling.

Restless leg syndrome

Night time can be particularly difficult for diabetics. A syndrome known as “restless leg syndrome” (RLS) is common. Cannabis helps still RLS which is otherwise treated with quinine and/or muscle relaxants like Flexaril. For night time it is recommended that patients use a vaporizer or smoked cannabis to aid in falling asleep. If night time hypoglycemia is a problem, then a cannabis cookie can be very helpful. Cannabis cookies are great treatment so long as portion control is exercised.

Two other major actions of cannabis can benefit the diabetic. The first is helping to keep blood vessels open and improving circulation. Cannabis is a vasodilator , the widening of blood vessels.[1] It results from relaxation of smooth muscle cells within the vessel walls, in particular in the large veins, large arteries, and smaller arterioles. and works well to improve blood flow. The second action is how cannabis can reduce blood pressure over time. While cannabis is not generally thought to be an anti-hypertensive and is no replacement for ACE inhibitors, it does contribute to lower blood pressure which is vital in diabetes management.

A diabetes epidemic is underway and it is a very serious situation.

Diabetes is a chronic disease that has spread widely in recent decades and there is as of yet no cure. The numbers of those inflicted is staggering and increasing considerably. In the last ten years alone, those living with diabetes jumped almost 50 percent. Today, diabetes takes more lives than  AIDS and breast cancer combined — claiming the life of 1 Canadian every 30 minutes and a new case of diabetes is diagnosed every 5 minutes. Diabetes currently affects more than 371 million people worldwide and kills around 5 million a year and it is expected to affect more than half a billion people by 2030 and the World Health Organization anticipates that worldwide deaths attributable to diabetes will double by 2030. Without primary prevention, the diabetes epidemic will continue to grow. Diabetes is projected to become one of the world’s main disablers and killers within the next twenty-five years.

Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, kidney failure, amputations, heart failure and stroke and causes heart attacks, blood vessel disease, nerve damage, and impotence in men.

Just what is diabetes?

Diabetes is a disease in which the body is unable to properly use and store glucose (a form of sugar). Glucose backs up in the bloodstream — causing one’s blood sugar to rise too high. There are two major types of diabetes. In Type 1, the body completely stops producing any insulin, a hormone that enables the body to use glucose found in foods for energy. People with type 1 diabetes must take daily insulin injections to survive. Type 2 diabetes results when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin and/or is unable to use insulin properly. Diabetes can occur in anyone. However, people who have close relatives with the disease are somewhat more likely to develop it. Other risk factors include obesity (Obesity is one of the biggest epidemics in developed countries today), high cholesterol, high blood  pressure, and physical inactivity. The risk of developing diabetes also increases as people grow older. People who are over 40 and overweight are more likely to develop diabetes.

The costs of diabetes is an economic tsunami.

The costs of diabetes is an economic tsunami. People with diabetes cause the highest health care costs. Because of its chronic nature, the severity of its complications and the means required to control them, diabetes is a costly disease, not only for the affected individual and his/her family, but also for the government health authorities. The costs of diabetes affect everyone, everywhere, but they are not only a financial problem. Intangible costs such as pain, anxiety, inconvenience and generally lower quality of life, emotional, physical and financial burden on the entire family are the most difficult to quantify… A University of Chicago study estimates that Americans with diabetes will increase from 24 million people to about 44 million people by 2034, with This is a tremendous costdirect health care costs increasing from $245 billion a year to half a trillion dollars a year. This is a tremendous cost to their economy and a painful reality for millions of Americans.

Immediate action is needed to stem the tide of diabetes and to introduce cost-effective treatment strategies to reverse this trend, this is where marijuana can play a part. Substantial evidence indicates that marijuana may prevent and treat diabetes.

Marijuana may prevent and treat diabetes

Studies have found lower prevalence rates of obesity and diabetes in marijuana users compared with people who have never used marijuana suggesting a relationship between cannabinoids and peripheral metabolic processes. Although marijuana has a well-deserved reputation for increasing appetite via what stoners call “the munchies,” the drug has a two-faced relationship to weight. Cannabis compounds help in controlling blood sugar. Toking up may help marijuana users to stay slim and lower their risk of developing diabetes, cannabis compounds help in controlling blood sugar. In diabetes, high blood sugar levels eventually lead to a variety of metabolic and non-metabolic complications.

Studies have identified higher endocannabinoid levels in diabetics compared to healthy individuals. Endocannabinoids are natural compounds found within all humans that happen to act in a similar way as plant-derived cannabinoids such as THC. Along with cannabinoid receptors, they make up what is known as the endocannabinoid system. Insulin dysfunction is the underlying factor in diabetes as well as the primary target of medical treatment. Interestingly, the presence of cannabinoid receptors has been identified in cells of the pancreas that produce insulin. Marijuana can activate the receptors in the endocannabinoid system in the pancreas to increase insulin production. THC use is also able to preserve insulin levels and lower blood glucose levels because THC demonstrated an incredible ability to counter autoimmune attacks.

Other major actions of marijuana can benefit the diabetic. One is helping to keep blood vessels open and improving circulation. Marijuana has the ability of widening of blood vessels. It results from relaxation of smooth muscle cells within the vessel walls, in particular in the large veins, large arteries, and smaller arterioles. and works well to improve blood flow, marijuana can reduce blood pressure over time. While marijuana is not generally thought to be an anti-hypertensive, it does contribute to lower blood pressure which is vital in diabetes management. Cannabinoids have a therapeutic role in a number of cardiovascular complications that accompany diabetes. Cannabinoids have the ability to regulate vascular inflammation, oxidative stress and atherosclerosis, thus marijuana may be useful in the treatment of these dysfunctions.

Night time can be particularly difficult for diabetics, common to them is a syndrome known as “restless leg syndrome”. Relieving the symptoms of RLS are among the therapeutic applications of marijuana. Medical experts consider this plant as a treatment for this syndrome where it is considered as a neurological disorder and most of its symptoms are associated with  abnormal muscle movements.

Glaucoma is another complication that can arise with diabetes. The general term for glaucoma-related complications is retinopathy. People who have diabetes are 40 percent more likely to contract glaucoma than people without the disease. Glaucoma occurs when pressure builds inside the eye,  eventually cutting off blood flow and damaging the optic nerve. Vision is gradually lost due to the continued pressure and nerve damage. Glaucoma is among the most common medical conditions treated with medicinal marijuana.

Approximately 60-70% of diabetics suffer from some form of nerve damage, which can often lead to a specific type of pain known as neuropathic pain. Marijuana has shown the ability in managing diabetes-related neuropathic pain where pharmaceutical medications fail. Low-doses of vaporized cannabis provide significant improvement for neuropathic pain sufferers. As has been the basis of many of the therapeutic effects of cannabis, the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD-rich cannabis are likely responsible for the observation of cannabis use reducing neuropathic pain. Patients suffering from neuropathic pain may find comfort in marijuana use.

Toking up may help marijuana users to stay slim and lower their risk of developing diabetes, The most likely explanation is that prolonged cannabis use causes the cannabinoid receptors to lose sensitivity and become inactive. This weakening of these cannabinoid receptors, translates into a lower risk for obesity and diabetes because the inactive receptor would be unable to respond to our own cannabis-like molecules, which we know are important in keeping us chubby. While marijuana may initially promote appetite and overeating, in the long run it has the opposite effect because it desensitizes cannabinoid receptors and may even protect against obesity.

So my fat friends, start sparking up!
