Step inside We Roll Up and you’ll notice the strains are categorized as indica, sativa, and hybrid. While this is a great guideline for determining effects, we highly recommend familiarizing yourself with the chemical profile of the strain. Compounds such as cannabinoids and terpenes provide a more in-depth understanding of the product.
Sativa, indica, and hybrid are actually botanical classifications of the plant’s structure. However, the terms have been widely adopted as a simple method of navigating effects. Generally, indica strains tend to be sedating, calming, relaxing, and more of a full-body high for nighttime use. Sativas lean toward energizing, uplifting and cerebral effects that help with socialization, creativity, and physical activity. Hybrids are a mix.
Questions About Cannabis?
Once you’re more experienced with cannabis, learning about chemical profiles, cannabinoids and terpenes help to narrow down and customize choices to best fit your preferences and purposes. You’ll discover that each strain interacts in a unique way with your body chemistry. The cannabinoids and terpenes combine into what’s known as the entourage effect.
While there are hundreds of chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant, the two primary cannabinoids are THC and CBD. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is responsible for the psychoactive effects and is often used for treating symptoms of pain and nausea. CBD (cannabidiol) is non-intoxicating and shows great promise for alleviating pain, inflammation, anxiety, and numerous medical issues.
Terpenes are aromatic compounds produced by a variety of plants and fruit, such as oranges, eucalyptus, pepper, and lavender. They are the reason for the distinct odors and flavors of cannabis. We are still discovering how combinations of terpenes and cannabinoids impact the effects of different strains, but you’ll definitely identify your favorites with just a sniff.
