Indica plants typically grow short and wide. This growth pattern makes Indica plants better suited for indoorgrowing. The high produced from smoking Indica bud is a strong physical body high that will make you sleepy or ‘couch-locked’ and provides a deep relaxation feeling.
Sativa plants grow tall and thin, making them better suited for outdoorgrowing – especially since some strains can reach over 25 ft. in height. A Sativa high is known to be more energetic and uplifting.
Marijuana strains range from pure sativas to pure indicas and hybrid strains consisting of both indica and sativa (30% indica – 70% sativa, 50% – 50% combinations, 80% indica – 20% sativa). Because Sativa and Indica buds have very different medicinal benefits and effects, certain strains can be targeted to better treat specific illnesses.
Cannabis Extracts, are significantly more potent than your standard cannabis buds. Their applications as medicine have proven to be effective for patients suffering from all sorts of ailments.

Marijuana infused products, commonly referred to as edibles, provide another option to patients who cannot, or choose not to smoke their cannabis. Edibles come in many different varieties including brownies, candy, chocolate bars, cookies, drinks, pills, snacks, spreads and more. There are even some companies that offer a “medicated” meals-on-wheels service for patients that cannot physically leave the house.
