There are three main categories that marijuana will be divided in to at your local dispensary. First up is your Sativa-dominant strains, which you would describe as a cerebral, head-high. You will then see Indica-dominant strains, which offer a pain-relieving, body-stone. Finally, you have the Hybrid strains, which are a cross-breeding of Indica and Sativa strains.

Sativa-dominant strains are incredibly useful for day-time smoking. They are usually very clear-minded and active strains that will keep you going throughout your day. Treating anxiety and depression is no-problem with Sativas; many patients feel incredibly uplifted and full of energy upon using them. Marijuana buds that are sativa-dominant are characteristically longer, sometimes a bit more airy and less-dense than Indica strains.

Indica strains are recognized as the most medicinally-beneficial type of marijuana because of their pain relieving effects. These strains are great for night time smoking and will put many smokers on the couch, creating a very pleasant sedating effect. They’re perfect for nausea, vomiting, any type of body pain, appetite induction, insomnia — you name it! Indica-dominant strains are great for almost any type of ailment and are the most recommended at  dispensaries. The buds are tight, dense and usually covered in crystals.

Finally, you have the hybrid strains. Hybrid strains are a cross breeding of two different types of marijuana plants, usually Sativa and Indica. This results in a very full type of high, giving you all of the beneficial elements that marijuana has to offer. Hybrids are becoming incredibly popular in the medical marijuana field. Patients enjoy getting the best of both worlds without being put down on the couch from a heavy Indica. These strains will usually be identified with a percentage of sativa vs. indica. You’ll be given something like 60% indica / 40% sativa. This would simply mean that the hybrid is Indica-dominant, resulting in slightly more of a body high. Hybrids are perfect for any time of the day and almost any type of ailment!

In the end, it all comes down to what you’re trying to treat with marijuana. The caregiver at you local dispensary will be able to tell you which of their marijuana strains is right for you. Caregivers work at the dispensaries and are very well versed in the marijuana field. They will be able to answer any questions you might have! Good luck!
