What conditions can Indica and Sativa support?
The first thing to note is that the effects felt by each strain are unique to the individual. Therefore, it’s important to prescribe the right strains for optimum relief of a patient’s condition. Find out how our specialist consultants prescribe the correct strains for each patient here.
Benefits of Sativa: Sativa can be helpful in relieving stress, lessening fatigue and treating depression. Due to its energising properties, it can also improve focus and boost alertness.
Benefits of Indica: Indica helps to relieve pain, reduce anxiety and promote a better quality of sleep. Select Indica strains can also work to improve appetite and reduce nausea.
Even though it’s useful to understand the general effects associated with Sativa and Indica, we can’t always rely on this to understand its effect on a patient. People can experience different effects whilst consuming the same cannabis. The consumption of cannabis is based on everyone’s personal endocannabinoid system. For example, some patients report having Indica-style responses to Sativa strains and vice versa.
