There are two main types of Cannabis strains. Sativa and indica. Both strains have potent healing properties, but they also make you feel very differently. Sativa derived strains tend to give a person a more energetic experience. Conversely, indica strains typically cause one to feel more relaxed or tired. Depending on what a person is dealing with or desiring, it is important to find what strain the CBD oil is coming from. One time I accidentally got an Indica CBD, and it made me tired all the time. I slept really well, but during the day I could barely do anything. So if you’re taking CBD for better sleep, or for relaxing, Then an indica strain would be the best choice. Indica strains are also known for their acute pain relief. This can greatly benefit someone who has a hard time sleeping because of an injury. Sativa is better suited for treating chronic pain.
The main benefits of the Sativa strain is anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, and chronic pain treatment. It also has a variety of other benefits, but I imagine that many people turn to CBD oil for healing and pain relief like I did. A Sativa strain will be good for treating things like arthritis, back pain, or a dull and aching digestive problem. Sativa will help you feel better during your everyday activities. There are also studies showing that it can increase the ability to focus and be creative. So depending on what kind of work you do, this could be very beneficial along with getting pain relief.
The main benefits of the Indica strain is acute pain relief, relaxation of the body and mind, and to help with sleeping. Indica is great for a variety of issues, but if used during the day time, it can leave you feeling very tired. At night it can greatly improve your quality of sleep. When it comes to pain relief Indica is better suited for treating a recent and acutely painful injury such as a badly twisted ankle. It’s also great if you have a hard time relaxing and falling asleep. An experience that I’ve hard, but that I don’t know if any studies have been done on, is that I also noticed a very great increase in dream frequency. Regularly I don’t remember many dreams, but taking Indica CBD oil would give me vivid dreams.
There are also strains combining both Sativa and Indica. These hybrid strains bring the best of both and put them together. They may not treat some problems as powerfully as they do alone, but in othe areas this combination supercharges their abilities. The brain support is especially strong when you combine both of these. It helps you feel more relaxed and less anxious, but also focused and creative. There is almost no better recipe for getting work done than that. Since Sativa tends to be energizing, but Indica tends to be relaxing, it can be hard to know how this would make you feel. It kind of causes both. You feel relaxed, but not tired. It makes you feel comfortable. It’s also beneficial if you’re dealing with acute and chronic pain or a chronic pain that may have acute flare-ups.
