There are mainly two types of plants where medicinal cannabis comes from, Sativa and Indica which contains over 70 active compounds. The two most important compounds are THC and CBD; these compounds produce the therapeutic effects.
With each different strain the percentage of THC and CBD varies. It is of utmost importance to know what percentage of THC/CBD is in the strain that you are considering using as specific medical conditions react differently to different percentages of THC/CBD.
Pure sativa contains high percentages of THC and has mainly uplifting capabilities. It can be of benefit to patients suffering from depression or chronic fatigue syndrome. Examples include Malawi Gold, Acapulco, and Burmese.
These strains contain little indica but mostly sativa and are called sativa-dominant strains. These are prescribed for patients who are suffering from depression or needs appetite stimulation. Examples include Willy Nelson, Jack Herer, Kali Mist, and Haze.
Indica strains contain higher CBD and have medicinal qualities and are more narcotic. They have high pain blocking capabilities and are used to treat pain and aches and are also good for insomnia. Examples include Hashplant, Pakistani, Hindi Kush, G-13, Afghani, and Herijuana.
