Researchers found that participants preferred indica strains for pain, sedation and sleep treatment, while opting for sativa strains to improve energy and mood. Sativa marijuana is recognized for its size, usually growing to 8-12 feet tall with long, thin, light green leaves. Sativa strains of marijuana are known to emit a sweet smell as they reach maturity. The smoke produced by this type of marijuana is generally milder and lighter with a fruity and flavorful flavor.
The Sativa high is often characterized by being uplifting and energetic. The effects of a sativa marijuana are mostly cerebral. They give a sense of optimism and well-being, as well as providing a good measure of pain relief for certain symptoms. Some pure sativas also have a very high THC content.
They are known to have a rather spatial or hallucinogenic effect. Sativas are a good option for daytime smoking. The medicinal effects of Sativa strains are much more cerebral compared to Indica strains. Medical marijuana patients tend to use sativa-dominant spots during the day due to its energetic and uplifting effects.
Sativas are also useful for treating chronic pain and general stress without the heavy sedation of an indica. Many patients who use medical marijuana throughout the day use sativa-dominant cannabis strains to avoid feeling exhausted. Sour Diesel is a cannabis sativa strain, which means it will give you a lot of energy during the day. While it's a potent strain of THC, it will leave you with a stimulating and conscious high.
Not only will you experience pain relief, but you'll feel happy and energized throughout the day. White Widow is a hybrid strain of marijuana. It is derived from two different strains; South Indian Indica and South American Sativa. For example, in a recent survey of more than 100 regular marijuana users with multiple sclerosis, almost all participants reported that marijuana helped relieve spasticity and pain in the extremities (see chapter II).
These impressions resemble several anecdotal reports from marijuana users, who told the IOM team that marijuana did not take away their pain, but rather helped them cope with their discomfort.
