Sativa and Indica are Dead. Long Live the Chemovar

Patients who use medical cannabis tend to stick to “sativa” or “indica,” claiming that one works better than the other. The classic example is the belief that sativa heightens anxiety, whereas indica does not. But is it really that simple? Do ALL sativas increase anxiety or is something else going on?

In a recent survey conducted in California, preferences for indica or sativa were noted among 95 participants, depending on the medical condition they were treating. The participants preferred indica at a statistically significant level for pain management, sleep, non-migraine headaches, glaucoma, neuropathy, spasticity, seizures and joint pain, while they favored sativa for euphoria and enhancement of energy.
