As the marijuana industry begins to grow, more and more cannabis shops are opening ― specifically in the city of Denver. While many stigmas have developed around weed smokers over the years with labels such as “burn out”, “couch potato”, and “lazy” being wrongly associated, the education on different strain effects begins to steer the biases away.
Much like different medications, foods, and drinks, marijuana strains have varying effects. Cannabis dispensaries, as exemplified in Denver, began leading the industry in educating customers on the varying impacts different strains have on one’s body and energy levels. Though it is true that certain strains of weed are used for relaxation and easing the body into a restful state, there is not much awareness on the many marijuana strains used to heighten awareness and focus which leads to increased productivity.
Cannabis products labeled “Indica” have the mellow, relaxing effect more commonly associated with marijuana, whereas, products labeled “Sativa” promote happiness and uplifted energy. Many weed smokers prefer Sativa strains as they help keep them focused on tasks like chores, creative projects, and other kinds of thought demanding work done throughout the day.
Of course, it is important to remember that the effects of each strain differ by individual. One customer may claim Sativa provides them with high-attentivity and alertness, whereas another may feel nothing but hyper-alert and anxiousness. Because of this, it is important to gradually try new strains, consulting your local dispensary.
High Level Health has developed many unique strains of Sativa by utilizing a top-notch soilless growth process to achieve the best strains for energy! Here are some of the top choices for new and old smokers to try:
