Anxiety is on the rise which can lead to depression or other issues. Managing these pressures are critical for building a healthy life. Luckily for us, marijuana has been growing for thousands of years. Marijuana is divided into three categories, Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. In our last blog What Strain Are You?, we provided a high level overview of the three different categories. Today though, we’re all about Indicas. Have you ever heard someone describe feeling “Mellow” “Chill” “Relaxed”? If so, it is likely they are smoking an Indica strain.
The effects of Indicas are felt more in the body versus the head like Sativas are. This is why Indicas are often associated with “night time” use and Sativas are associated with “day time” use. Indicas are perfect if you are looking for a way to relax after a busy day or just looking for a great weekend treat.
Indica smokers often are left feeling so carefree and relaxed that there is a sense of being “couch locked” and the idea of moving becomes an afterthought. Now, this isn’t saying you’ll be stuck, but, you will be very comfortable. Keep in mind this is a lethargic feeling, so it is best paired with a lighter day/evening. Remember, when trying marijuana it is important to pace yourself. You can always get higher! Taking things slow can help ease into the experience.
