Indica or Sativa: Which Type is Right For My Condition

Indica or Sativa

When considering your options for medical marijuana, it is important to consider that there are multiple varieties, each of which can be used to treat different conditions more effectively. Two main types of cannabis, Sativa and Indica, are among the main contenders for your medical needs, although there are also hybrids of the two that can be used to treat the ailments listed here.

What can Sativa be used for? 

Because of the cerebral properties of THC, Sativa marijuana is best used to treat mental and behavioral problems, including depression and ADHD. It can also stimulate hunger, helping patients with anorexia as well as those being treated for cancer (who tend to lose their appetite due to chemotherapy).

What can Indica be used for? 

Indica can be used to treat a variety of physical aches and pains; it is commonly used for chronic pain, muscle spasms, and nausea caused by a variety of ailments, including cancer, HIV/AIDS, and glaucoma. Indica has also been proven to help treat specific diseases, including lupus, fibromyalgia, or multiple sclerosis (MS). Due to its relaxing properties, Indica can be used as a sleep aid for those experiencing insomnia.
