There are three classifications of cannabis: marijuana sativa, indica, and ruderalis. Cannabis sativa is known as the stimulating strain which may be grown from marijuana sativa seeds for sale from online seed banks and local companies. Indica strains, on the other hand, are plants that are quite the opposite. Indicas can cause a relaxing effect which can help induce relaxation and sleep. Meanwhile, cannabis ruderalis strains are used mainly for breeding and growing autoflowering strains.
Considering the effects of sativas and indica strains, can you smoke sativa strains at night?
A short answer
The answer is yes, you can smoke cannabis sativa at night IF you don’t plan on sleeping!
Cannabis sativa strains have a stimulating effect owing to its low cannabinoid content. Sativa strains can stimulate your senses, keep you awake and energetic. You will also experience appetite stimulation as a result of this effect.
If you have heard of the munchies then these are possibly the result of taking cannabis sativa strains. This unusual craving will make you want to eat everything and thus will put an end to poor appetite in people suffering from illness and those with anorexia and other eating conditions.
Other effects of cannabis sativa strains
Aside from stimulating appetite and energizing you, cannabis sativa also has a natural mood elevating effect which can relieve symptoms of depression. People who feel depressed and use antidepressants can use sativa strains on their symptoms.
Sativas have potent analgesic effects. People who suffer from pain especially migraines, muscle pains; muscle strain and chronic pain may experience relief.
The higher level of THC in sativa strains is also the reason why these strains can cause an energetic cerebral high.
What happens when you smoke sativa in the evening?
When you smoke sativa in the evening, you’ll be energetic the entire night. Even if you try to sleep, you won’t be able to because the overpowering energetic effect of sativa will remain until the effects wear off. Of course, the time it will take before the effects of a strain wear off depends on many factors. First of all, if you are taking a very potent sativa strain like Ghost Train Haze, it would take all night before you can get over the high. Next, if you took a large dose, more than the usual dosage prescribed or recommended to you, it would again take a long time for the effects of the strain to wear off.
Another thing, if you are new to using sativas then you may experience a very strong high. Seasoned and experienced users won’t have any problem dealing with a strong high. They may even take a higher dose just to achieve a stronger effect.
Finally, taking sativa edibles may increase your high. Smoking and vaping strains will allow these to take effect faster. However, the effects won’t last long. An edible has to pass through the stomach and the cannabinoids broken down in the intestine before these could be transported by the blood to the different cannabinoid receptors. This action can take up to an hour or more depending on the strain. Usually, first-time sativa edible consumers make a mistake and dose up again because they think the first dose was not enough. This ends up in an unpleasant high which may take a long time to recover from.
Therefore, if you want to enjoy the effects of sativa or the effect of any kind of strain, smoke it or vape it. If you prefer a strong and prolonged high then you should take it in edible form.
But what about cannabis sativa oils? You are likely to find cannabis sativa oils sold in dispensaries. This oil is very potent and requires caution when taken. It can be used in a number of ways. First, you can take a drop of oil and place it under the tongue. There are so many minute blood vessels under the tongue and thus placing a medication under the tongue or sublingually will allow you to absorb it faster.
You may also add oils and tinctures to food or to make cannabis edibles. Just make sure to add a small amount of fat like coconut oil to the tincture because THC must bind with fat to take effect.
What is the best strain to take at night?
Having trouble sleeping or you wake up in the middle of the night without any reason at all? Cannabis indica is the ideal strain to treat insomnia and sleeplessness. The high amount of cannabinoid compounds will help relax you and soon will make you want to sleep.
People who are stressed, anxious and disturbed can count on the naturally relaxing effects of indica strains. Take it an hour or so before sleeping and you’ll be sleeping like a baby. You will be sleeping soundly and continuously. You will wake up refreshed but some may report dizziness after taking this strain.
Therefore, you must always take indica strains in moderation. Like their sativa counterparts, the effects may be pronounced if you are new to taking this strain. You may also experience enhanced effects and side effects.
