At WoahStork, it is our mission to help cannabis consumers find the right strains of cannabis for their needs. The most energetic strains of cannabis are much harder to find than simply asking your bud-tender for a “Sativa”.
Many consumers think that Indica is a clever reference to “In da couch”– a state where one feels unable to get off the move (aka “couch lock”) and that “Sativa will leave you satisfied”.
While this is partially true, it doesn’t capture all of the variance in which strains can give you energy vs. which will make you tired. In fact, a lot of hybrid and indica strains can actually be more energetic than certain sativa strains. Sounds counter-intuitive, right?
The story isn’t so simple because of what is known as the entourage effect— a phenomenon where one particular cannabinoid (e.g. THC) will affect your body differently depending on the presence of other cannabinoids / terpenes found throughout the same strain.
