The Differences of Cannabis Indica and Sativa plants.

Fat Leaves and Short Bush = INDICA
Thin Leaves and Tall Bush = SATIVA

Sativas are just about the opposite of Indicas. They are tall, thin plants, with much narrower leaves and grow a lighter green in color. They grow very quickly and can reach heights of 20 feet in a single season. They originally come from Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Southeast Asia. Once flowering has begun, they can take anywhere from 10 to 16 weeks to fully mature. Flavors range from earthy to sweet and fruity. Sativa's higher THC than CBD equals cerebral, soaring type of high, more energetic which can stimulate brain activity and may produce hallucinations.

Sativa plants are taller, take longer to mature, have less chlorophyll and more accessory pigments (accessory pigments protect the plant from excessive sunlight). As Sativa strains have less chlorophyll than Indica they take longer to grow, mature, and require more light.

Sativa typically takes longer to germinate and flower also, and grows more gangly then Indica breeds.

Yield is usually lower than Indica, but is very potent. Thai Sativa grows taller and has a longer flowering period, so they are better suited for outdoors.

Indicas originally come from the hash producing countries of the world like Afghanistan, Morocco, and Tibet. They are short dense plants, with broad leaves and often grow a darker green. After flowering starts they will be mature in 6 to 8 weeks. The buds will be thick and dense, with flavors and aromas ranging from pungent skunk to sweet and fruity. The smoke from an Indica is generally a body type stone, relaxing and laid back. Indica's higher CBD than THC equals a much heavier, sleepy type of high. Indica plants have a heavy, stony high that is relaxing and can help different medical problems.

Indica yield is usually higher than Sativa, and shorter growing season. Better for indoor growing, because they don't get as tall.

Indica plants are short, bushy, mature early, have more chlorophyll and less accessory pigments (accessory pigments protect the plant from excessive sunlight). As Indica strains have more chlorophyll than sativa they grow and mature faster.

Combining different indicas, different sativas or a combination thereof creates hybrids. The resulting hybrid strains will grow, mature and smoke in relationship to the indica/sativa percentages they end up containing.






Thousands of specially-bred, organically grown marijuana plants, wait to have their resins extracted at the GW Pharmaceuticals lab in England.

Scientists at GW Pharmaceuticals, Britain's legal med-pot research facility, have announced that Sativa strains are more effective at treating pain than Indica strains.

The company has a 20,000 plant garden in England, and intends to introduce cannabis- based prescription drugs by 2004.

I'm sure that they have a lot of truth to what they say.

However, I use loads of narcotics for pain. I have a multi tear disc prolapse, with stenosous, and other bloody problems related to my spine. I live in constant agony.

I have tried so many strains, well it has become a mission for me.

The best to date was NL#5. It is superb, but I havent got anymore, and am finding it dificult to trace a reliable place that has what I want, at a price I can deal with.

Point is, trial and error. As Tom's asthma is settled with grass, mine is aggrevated. People are diferent, and the way we re-act to diferent chemicals is profound.

cheers

The northern lights# has always been a reliable strain for pain relief. I've kept one female going since the late eighties/early nineties and its only in the last eighteen months i have found another strain to better her, but as you point out whats good for one person might not apply to another.

Cheers

to robbie, and alot of other people in the same boat a site that could do and i would imagine would be of great assistance is Cannabis Genetics Index
It includes just about every strain there is and always added to, also seedbanks that provide the strains and links to.
Best of luck Robbie and all others with unpleasant dispositions.

I would like to hear some thoughts in relation to depression and cannabis, i find it helps mine but deffinately 'interacts' in a way to my medication, so yer, extreme caution is adopted in this case. just intrested to hear other peoples opinions as i know everyone has a different view on the subject.
