Guide to Cannabis Plants

The Latin name for marijuana is Cannabis and it comes in 3 species of the plant, Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Ruderalis. This guide will concentrate on the Sativa and Indica varieties. A strain is the term used to portray naturally occurring or artificially bred combination of these two sorts running from an immaculate Sativa to an unadulterated Indica with any proportion of both being alluded to as a crossover. So the greater part of the favor, bright strain named products that you will see on AgriMed’s site are truly just either a Sativa, an Indica, or a cross breed of both which as of now rearranges and demystifies the determination procedure as we will see in the blink of an eye.

Cannabis Indica

The Indica plants, believed to have originated in the Hindu Kush region near Afghanistan, are short and stocky with thick coats of resin to protect the plant against harsh conditions. Indica strains are well known for their sedative effects, which are accompanied by a mild “head high” due to a high ratio of CBD:THC. Indica plants are commonly used as an appetite stimulant, to aid sleep and provide pain relief.


Hybrid plants result when a male plant of one strain pollenates a female plant of another strain; with the female strain remaining dominant. Hybrids are often described as having a “balancing” effect, offering attributes that both Indica and sativa strains offer. Depending on which strain is dominant, hybrids are used to help control muscle spasms, alleviate insomnia, relieve anxiety and reduce inflammation.

  1. Sativa-dominant Hybrids: Cerebral high with a relaxing body effect. Provides physical and mental relief.
  2. Even Hybrids (50/50): Ideal strains for people seeking a perfect balance of head and body.
  3. Indica-dominant Hybrids: These strains provide a full-body pain relief, with a relaxing head high. Recommended for nighttime use to go to sleep, or daytime relief from minor pain. These strains are perfect for patients who suffer from all types of autoimmune diseases as well as insomnia or depression.

Cannabis Sativa

Sativa plants, which thrive in temperate conditions, are tall, thin plants with skinny leaves. Their higher THC:CBD ratio stimulates a cerebral effect on the brain which can energize patients and relieve fatigue. Due to their uplifting qualities, sativas are generally used during the day and are known to relieve depressive moods, fatigue, increase energy and help to improve attitude.
