Nowadays, just about every cannabis-related business splits strains into two primary categories: indica and sativa. You’re probably aware of the lingo. A sativa gives you an energising and uplifting high, whereas an indica offers a calmer, sedative body high.
Since this categorisation has been used for decades, it must be accurate, right? Well, not quite. There’s evidence to suggest that we may have been duped by inaccurate science the whole time.
You may be thinking, “no this can’t be true, there has to be a difference”, and don’t stress because we thought the same thing! However, we must accept the evidence and come to terms with the fact that the distinction between the effects of indica and sativa strains is likely a bunch of nonsense.
Buckle up because in this post we’re going to pull the cotton from your eyes and explain why we think there isn’t a difference between the psychoactive effects of indica and sativa strains. To conclude, we’ll hash out how the cannabis industry should classify the effects of strains moving forward.
