Strain Specificity. What is it and why should I care? Part 1: Sativa
Each time we grow, smoke, dab, rub or eat anything with cannabis flowers or extracts, there is a strain associated with each plant. The four most common namings are Sativa, Indica, Hybrid and CBD. Each strain has its own characteristics and within each there are countless varieties and flavor profiles. So how do we make sense of it all without just pointing and saying "I'll just take that one"? Well, we are here to give a little insight and how it relates in general and specifically to the edibles from Purefectionery.
All of our treats are strain specific, which in our opinion creates much more opportunities for different effects and results. Now we don't claim that we have a magic bullet or any health claims but we can share how we and our friends use them and their personal results. We will start with the Sativa strain and move through them sequentially as referenced above.
Sativa: A good sativa should be about as stimulating as a cup of coffee/tea. Typically used during the daytime, but not always, Sativa will energize you with their strong cerebral effects without a lot of "feelings of fog". Many marijuana users choose sativa when they’re looking for an uplifting and creative buzz due to these effects and some will use this strain exclusively. Those characteristics are why we use Sativa for our "Sunshine" All Natural Fruit Chew. Not only do we combine the flavors of Mandarin Orange, Mango and Meyer Lemon to create what many consider the actual flavor of a sun-shining day, but the brightness and burst of flavors brings an instant smile to our friends' faces.
How our friends use it is even more important than the fact that they taste so good. From our files, we will share that now. "Sunshine" is perfect for daytime use when you want to be able to get stuff done whether around the house or out in the garden. It's the perfect treat for a Sunday bike ride and cruising around town. Because it has an uplifting quality to it, Sativa strains are perfect to take for things like dinner parties, movies or concerts. No falling asleep at important moments and for a lot of friends, also much greater recall of events versus other strains. This strain tends to energize and a lot of people say their focus is improved and they can get lots of stuff done without losing track of time or schedule.
We have some friends that are very Strain Specific themselves, meaning they only eat or smoke one type, but we think not only can that be limiting but why close the door to the gifts the others have to offer? In short, Sativa strains, like we use in "Sunshine", are great for day use, playtime or anytime you want to have fun and still be awake. Test it for yourself and start to see that there is a difference and if you want All Natural Fruit Chews, try "Purefectionery Sunshine", we think it will make you smile.
Next week Indica.......
