Indica vs. Sativa: Which is right for me?

Indica and Sativa are the two major strains of cannabis; each with its own type of high. Comparing Indica vs. Sativa we are able to determine which is best for the type of high that is desired.

Is Sativa A Upper or Downer?

If you’re looking for an energizing and even creative high, then the Sativa based Day Drinker is perfect for you. Sativa is generally considered to be an “upper” where the user experiences more energy and typically will become more social. Avoid using Sativa products before bed as there can be effects of insomnia.


Is a Indica a Upper or Downer?

A Indica based high often creates the stereotypical high where the user is calm and has mellowed out. Indica users have commented feelings of pain relief; as such, most medical marijuana strains contain a hybrid of Indica. Users of the D8 Seltzer have written stating that drinking a can nightly has reduced their dependency on pain medication.*

What is stronger: Sativa or Indica?

The question is: Indica vs. Sativa? Which is stronger? Which is right for you?

When considering if you should use Indica vs. Sativa consider the results you would get from each. With the Indica based D8 Drink we like to describe the results as “Indica is In-da-couch.” If you’re getting ready for a big family function where you need to be social, Indica probably isn’t the way to go. However, if you’re trying to enjoy a night in with your favorite movie on, you’d probably want Indica vs. Sativa. Sativa is a better fit for your tailgate or afterparty where you can be social and enjoy the evening.

Each of the strains have their own benefits and it is not that one is “stronger” than the other; rather, Indica and Sativa produce very different effects. If you were to compare raw plants, Sativa would have a higher THC composition. However, the 2018 Farm Bill makes it so that any hemp based product can’t have more than 0.3% THC. Since the THC levels are now equal, comparing Indica vs. Sativa is like comparing apples vs. oranges. They’re both delicious, but you have to be in the right mood for each one.
