Let’s speak plainly shall we? One of the most common and widely chosen ways of experiencing psychoactive bliss is through cannabis consumption. Here’s how it happens; the weed flower or the bud of the cannabis plant is covered with trichome (a hairlike outer cover), and is used for both medicinal and recreational purposes. These hairlike trichomes have a higher concentration of resin than the rest of the plant. This is because trichomes produce cannabinoids, constituents that class a plant as cannabis. The calyxes are sepals of the weed flower and are positioned at the base of the flower, this holds the bulb in place. Calyxes carry the pistils, the female reproductive organs and the trichomes that have a higher concentration of resin.
The methods of cannabis consumption are varied, often coming down to personal preference. Only the flower of the plant is used and therefore when purchased loose it’ll be crushed into a powdered state. Conventionally it’s then rolled as a joint to be smoked, but it can also be infused into edibles such as candies and gummies.
Now let’s list all the varieties of weed flowers that we have to offer – There’s Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. When it comes to choosing between them, it helps to look at the intrinsic qualities of each weed flower. Based on your requirements and preferences, you can then decide which one you’d like to go for.
Sativa: This species is known for its higher THC level in its dominant strains. Therefore, it serves people who are looking for the following effects; energetic, uplifting, cerebral, actively creative, highly sociable.
Indica: This species is known for its calming effects. Its strains can soothe the full body as though sedated, resulting in relaxation. It mainly relieves stress in the muscles, the back of the neck, and the sole of the feet. It aids sound sleep, promoting complete relaxation.
Hybrid: As its name suggests, it is a variety combining the effects of both Sativa and Indica. It works best for sore muscles and relaxing the nerves. This is one of the best options to relieve an ailment.
