Strain Specificity. What is it and why should I care. Part 2: Indica
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.
Indica: A good Indica should induce a sedative and narcotic effect, the typical “stoned” feeling which is often not recommended for performing activities that may require concentration, such as driving or operating heavy machinery, sometimes operating the remote control LOL. Indica can induce "couch lock", where you are very comfortable on the couch and nothing will make you move, except maybe the "munchies", which typically go along with the Indica high. Many marijuana users choose this strain when they’re looking for a pain relief, sleep, muscle relaxation or mental relaxation. Those characteristics are why we use Indica for our "Moonlight" All Natural Fruit Chew. Not only do we combine the flavors of Black Currant and Blood Orange to create that nighttime and chill feel but also to put the smiles back on our friends' faces.
How our friends use it is even more important than the fact that they taste so yummy. From our files, we will share that now. "Moonlight" is perfect for nighttime use when you want to be able to relax, take a day off from things or get some good sleep. It's the perfect treat for a binge watching session of Netflix when you have no where to go. Because it has a sedative quality to it, Indica strains are perfect to take for things like sleep or pain relief. These strains may cause you not to remember the movie you just watched, but you tend to awake feeling deep rest.. This strain is used by lots of our friends dealing with chronic pain issues, especially if they have trouble sleeping due to their physical ailments or medical treatments. Believe me when I tell you how incredible the stories are of people finally getting their much needed sleep after enjoying these treats.
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, Indica strains, like we use in "Moonlight", are great for afternoon-night use, movie time or anytime you want to deeply relax and get a good night's sleep. Test it for yourself and start to see that there is a difference with our edibles and if you want All Natural Fruit Chews, try "Purefectionery Moonlight", we think it will make you smile.
