When it comes to cannabis, there are a lot of terms and terminologies that most people don’t understand. Some of these terms play a vital role in purchasing your cannabis. In other words, if you want to buy the right cannabis strains as per your needs and preferences, you must know about certain key cannabis terms. 

In this blog, we will shed light on the difference between Indica and Sativa, followed by 4 strains that people are most confused about (if they are indica or sativa).


Indica vs Sativa

When we talk about indica strains, we’re talking about the ones that produce the most calming effects, the ones that encourage relaxation. These strains can be THC or CBD dominated, but if the effects are de-stressing, then they would fall under the umbrella of Indica.

Sativa strains are opposite to Indicas – it means that these strains are known for uplifting moods and energizing users. These strains are often consumed to heighten focus and get a boost before taking on a busy day. 

Due to the differences (relaxing vs energizing), Indica strains are often referred to as nighttime strains while Sativa are the ones commonly used in daytime to improve performance. 

There is also a third type – Hybrid strains, which combine the effects of indica and sativa.


4 Strains people are unsure of

The following four are the strains that most people are unsure about whether they are indica or sativa. 

Anslinger Demise

Is Anslinger Demise strain indica or sativa?

This strain from Kineos Genetics may not be the most popular since people are confused whether it is indica or sativa. This strain is neither indica or sativa, but a hybrid that provides a combination of effects. It can provide either of the effects based on how it is produced.



This is another example of a hybrid strain made by crossing Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet. Gelato is a THC-dominant strain and may provide effects such as pain-relief, euphoria, relief against fatigue and insomnia, etc. 

Since it is a hybrid, it combines both calming and energizing effects to offer users a balanced experienced.


Acapulco Gold

Unlike the above mentioned strains, this one is a Sativa, which means it is a morning strain known for its truly invigorating effects. The moderately infused 18% THC adds to the experience with mild psychoactive effects, while dominating terpene Myrcene allows for a coffee-like aroma for users.


OG Kush

Is OG Kush indica? 

Well, no! This strain also falls under the hybrid umbrella. This strain is produced by combining Lemon Thai, Chemdawg, and Hindu Kush. It was initially cultivated in Florida and then went on to become one of the most preferred strains across the US. 

OG Kush contains about 18% of THC making it mildly psychoactive. The effects, as with most hybrids, are a balance between calming and energizing.
