Due to the very recent approval of medicinal marijuana in Florida, you may find yourself feeling fairly uninformed on the topic as a whole. While medical cannabis has been a huge topic of conversation and debate for many years now, most individuals do not truly understand its properties and uses.
For instance, many patients are unaware that there are different types of marijuana that can be used for a variety of medical uses. The main categories of cannabis are Indica, Sativa, and Hybrids. These categories are broken up and explored below.
These strains produce a relaxing effect that targets the whole body. Use of this category of cannabis is primarily soothing and provides sedating effects. Due to these properties, healthcare professionals typically use cannabis found in the Indica classification to treat patients dealing who suffer from insomnia, anxiety, muscle spasms or are in need of pain relief from a variety of conditions.
On the other side of the spectrum, Sativa has primary effects that tend to be more uplifting, energizing, and cerebral. This subspecies is usually recommended for nighttime/bedtime use and is beneficial for individuals who are hoping to treat symptoms of depression, Attention-deficit Disorder (ADD), mood disorders, and fatigue.
As with many species of plants, a variety of hybrids exist in the world of marijuana cultivation. Simply put, a hybrid is a mixture of both Indica and Sativa plants. Depending on the nature of the hybrid, it can contain varying effects from both types. Medically, hybrids are very useful when tailoring the medicinal cannabis to a patient’s specific needs.
