If you still haven’t register yet let me tell you this is a tremendous opportunity for you to learn everything about this magnificent plant and this great up and coming, emerging new industry.

For today’s topic I decided to write about the main differences between the two major types of cannabis plant. Sativa and indica. I’m pretty sure you have hear about this two varieties. Generally, medicinal cannabis results in the user having a sense of outstanding physical and improved sleep. However, each type offers a different set of benefits. Understanding the distinctness between the two is important in order to find the right strain for each patient.

Cannabis Indica:

Some people agree that Cannabis Indica originated either on the Asian subcontinent, or possibly in Afghanistan. French naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, the first European botanist to classify this type in 1785, received his samples from India and dubbed the plant Cannabis Indica in recognition of that fact.

Most Indicas are a rich source of the cannabinoids THC, CBD and CBN. While Cannabis Sativa often generates a relative amount of THC compared to its other cannabinoids, Cannabis Indica often contains significant levels of all three. Indicas tend to cause more body-centred effects than Sativas - enhancement of physical sensations, relaxation, dry mouth, red eyes.

Usually, cannabis Indica plants are short, bushy plants with wide leaves. For the most part, these plants grow faster and have a higher yield than the sativa variety.

Cannabis Sativa:

Cannabis Sativa is perhaps the most common form of cannabis worldwide and also the type with the most applications. Sativas grows taller than the other types of cannabis, gaining height all through its vegetation, or growing, and flowering phases. This is due to the tropical origin of Sativa strains.

Cannabis Sativa plants are opposite of the Indica strains and grow tall and thin with narrow leaves. Sativa strains take longer to grow, mature, and demand more light. Medicine made from cannabis Sativa plants have lower CBD and higher THC counts.

As the tallest variety, it produces the longest fibers and therefore has the widest range of Industrial uses.


- Anti-anxiety


-Treats chronic pain

-Increases focus and creativity

-Increases serotonin (a neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of learning, mood, sleep, anxiety and appetite)

Cannabis plants can be found almost everywhere in the world, making global levels of cannabis cultivation and production difficult to estimate. Despite the prohibitions and unfavorable opinions towards the plant, it is here to stay!
