Indica dominant marijuana strains provide a body high, resulting in a variety of benefits: muscle relaxation, as well as relief from body pain, stress, anxiety, headaches, and insomnia. Some strains also result in increased appetite. Indica strains tend to have a strong sweet or sour odor.
Sativa dominant marijuana strains provide an uplifting, energetic and “cerebral” high that is best suited for daytime smoking. A sativa high is one filled with creativity and energy; being high on sativa can spark new ideas and creations. Sativa strains tend to have a grassy odor.

Marijuana edibles are very potent, inducing a strong body high that typically lasts several hours. Be cautious when consuming edibles; they are slower to take effect than marijuana consumed through smoking. Chronic Therapy recommends that first-time consumers ingest a 10 mg serving and then wait two hours in order to gauge the edible amount that works best for you. Don’t fret, though, if you feel you’ve consumed too much. Sleep it off and consume less next time.

Cannabis has pain-relief and anti-inflammatory properties, making cannabis-infused topicals helpful for those suffering from arthritis, psoriasis, or allergic skin reactions. Topicals are not psychoactive, applying a topical to your skin will not get you high.
