"I hate what I’ve bought—sleepy, depressing, no energy—yuck!"
What really differentiates the varying effects of Sativa and Indica are the amounts of THC and CBD. Sativa is dominated by high THC levels and low or no CBD levels. Indica is a more balanced mix, with moderate THC levels and higher levels of CBD. Hence, why dispensaries focus on the ratio of the THC and CBD versus the strain. Sativa strains produce more of a euphoric high, lifting the mood and therapeutically relieving stress. Indica strains relax muscles and work as general analgesics, also aiding with sleep. Perhaps you need to up your THC concentration dose in order to achieve a energetic and lifted effect.
