Cannabis, an alternative medicine infused in food. How to choose what best suits you. - by chef Frank
We live within a society that’s increasingly being led to opioid dependent lifestyles when it comes to medical conditions. Negatively charged and misguided perceptions or stigmas about cannabis predominantly influence choices for personal use. As an individual whom has repeatedly witnessed the positive effects of responsible and proper cannabis use, my wife and I became passionate about helping newly diagnosed individuals who were diagnosed with sudden medical conditions, were interested in alternative medicine, or have tried a series of unsuccessful treatments. Cena Segreta was created with the personal realization of how important it is to facilitate informed decision of which strain would best suit your specific needs or that of your loved one through infusion of quality strains and food.
In this blog I will help you understand the difference between Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis Cannabis plants and include references to a small portion of the multitude of strains .
Sativa is physically characterized by leaflets that are more narrow which branches are further apart and the coloration tends to be more of a spring green. They're also taller and produce fewer flowers. Sativa plant is known for its psychoactive and energetic “head high” effects due to the increased levels of THC. This tends to lead to daytime use to maximize the benefits of alertness, euphoria, creativity, increased energy, and uplifting effects. It helps stimulate appetite, relieves depression, migraines, nausea, and alleviates chronic pain. Some examples of the known sativa strains are haze, train wreck, K2, kali mist, white russian, and kiwi green.
Indica is physically characterized by its broader leaflets which often overlap. It’s branches are closer together and the coloration tends to be a deeper olive green. The indica plant tends to be shorter and bushier and produces a more dense and fuller flower. Its known to produce a body high which leads to deep relaxation, pain relief, appetite stimulant, and aids with sleep disorders. Due to its effects, its better suited for nighttime use. The sedative and heavy effects are also known to help with chronic pain relief, anxiety, muscle spasms, tremors, and insomnia. Some examples of sativa strains, include white berry, blueberry, northern lights, sensei star, and gold star.
Ruderalis is physically characterized by varied leaflets in mature leaves, shorter stature, and generally smaller size. It’s a subspecies used to create Sativa or Indica “hybrids”. The growers hand selected quality traits which make its medicinal quality more effective. This strain contains high percentage of cannabinoids. Their chosen properties reflect the combined taste, color, and smell from their variety origin. The percentage of the sativa or indica dominance will ultimately determine which “hybrid” strain can be most beneficial to meet your person or loved ones medical condition needs. An example of how it will effect you would be: if sativa is added to the indica strain( ie. 80% sativa/20% indica), its combination will increase mental clarity and decreases sedative effects. If indica is added to sativa (ie. 70% indica/30% sativa) it can increase or eliminate the sativa tendency to stimulate anxiety “paranoia”. Common strains for “hybrid” strains are OG kush, Himalayan gold, blue cross, 00 Diesel, gorilla glue, and candy kush.
