What are the best Sativa and Indica cannabis strains to grow this spring 2022?
Time to write a blog about the very best cannabis strains to grow this spring of 2022. Buy cannabis seeds and grow the best quality weed for the entire year. This is obviously a subjective topic, because what really is 'the best cannabis strain'? Depending on what you're looking for, below is a list of delicious cannabis strains to try out for yourself, this cannabis growing season. There is something for every stoner and always new strains to discover.
Do you prefer to smoke Sativa or Indica?
The question it all starts with is: do you prefer a sativa dominant strain or an indica dominant strain? What is so important about this has to do with the different properties of these two weed varieties. Scientifically, though, it's all about one and the same plant: Cannabis sativa L.
It's not black and white, so to make it easy to talk about weed, I'm simplifying the properties and effects of sativa and indica a bit. This will give you an idea of what indica is like and what to expect from a sativa cannabis plant.
Still, of course, there are always unique differences to each cannabis plant. The only way to find out what kind of weed is perfect for you is to try out different cannabis strains.
Hybrid cannabis strains are a combination of sativa and indica
Usually when you buy cannabis seeds you are dealing with a combination of indica and sativa. So we speak of indica dominant weed varieties and sativa dominant weed varieties. For example, a 20% sativa and 80% indica is actually a hybrid strain but is still classified as indica.
Now when it comes to a true blend, you can more likely classify it as a hybrid. At the bottom I also include some hybrid cannabis strains, each with their unique effects. A true combination of indica and sativa.
Sativa weed: generally creative, energy and psychedelic
People who like to smoke a solid Amnesia Haze know only too well how a Sativa dominant weed feels. In general, you can expect a more energetic high, where you feel like being creative and have energy to accomplish creative projects. Sativa dominant cannabis strains can be great for daytime use. Sativa cannabis strains can produce an almost psychedelic high, especially if they contain very high THC percentages like an Amnesia Haze.
What can you expect when growing sativa weed?
If you choose to grow a sativa cannabis strain, you can look forward to a beautiful plant that can grow very large. If you let a sativa have its way it can grow to over 3 meters. Many growers find this a bit too much so make sure you have enough space in your garden for a sativa weed plant.
Sativa plants take longer to grow and flower, this can take several months. Patience is rewarded with rich buds that can generally have very high THC percentages.
Indica weed: generally analgesic, relaxing and sleep-inducing
Medicinal cannabis users usually like indica dominant cannabis strains the most. Indica generally gives a calming stoned effect that is perfect for the evening. Indica generally gives a more physical stoned feeling, rather than the rather cognitive high.
Indica weed generally has a different composition of cannabinoids and terpenes than sativa weed.
However, it is certainly not always the case that an indica cannabis strain can provide a less energetic high than a sativa cannabis strain.
Growing an indica cannabis plant: what are the differences with sativa?
The most obvious difference with sativa is in the structure of an indica weed plant. It remains compact and smaller than a lanky sativa.
The buds are also a lot more compact than with a sativa. Many novice growers choose an indica marijuana strain because it is generally easier to grow than sativa and, above all, takes less time to grow and flower.
