Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid: Weeding Out the Guessing Games

If you are an avid cannabis consumer, you are likely familiar with terms like;  indica, sativa and  hybrid strains. Maybe, you know you get anxious when you smoke a sativa, or that indica strains make you sleepy. However, it’s not always that simple. Sometimes the surprise of a strain’s effects can damper your high. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could match your mood to your cannabis experience without the guesswork of how it will affect you? Nuvata’s Mind Body series of effects-based vapes allows you to do just that with the entourage effect. 

The entourage effect suggests that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) interacts with a variety of botanical compounds found in cannabis, working together as a whole to produce different psychoactive and physical effects. When combined, these elements create a more full-spectrum experience for the cannabis user. This challenges the traditional rigidity of the three main strains of cannabis and their subsequent effects. Not all indicas, sativas, or hybrids are the same, and the effects that each strain are not necessarily universal. By focusing on the larger makeup of the cannabis rather than the THC content alone, the entourage effect allows the cannabis user to better understand and choose their most satisfying high. In an effects-based cannabis product, terpenes (organic compounds produced in cannabis) take the lead in determining the way the cannabis product will make the user feel.  

Terpenes play a distinctive role in cannabis. They shape the profile of the cannabis strain—both the physical and psychological effects it has on the user, as well as the aroma of the strain. Some terpenes promote focus and clarity, while others have a more relaxing and calming effect. Nuvata utilizes terpenes to balance each distillate with specific mind and body effects.

Terpenes play a key role in the Mind Body vape series. The distillates utilize specific terpene blends for different purposes—in the Mind Dominant vaporizer, terpinolene is the most prominent terpene, used for its energizing effects. In the Full Body vaporizer, myrcene is used to create a calming effect. By utilizing these terpenes, the Mind Body series distillates work in tandem with the THC found in cannabis to create unique, strain-specific experiences.

 If you are in search of a more customizable cannabis experience, try an effects-based vaporizer like the Nuvata Mind Body series of vapes. Effects-based vaporizers are strain-agnostic, and are made for a more modern high. The Mind Body vaporizer distillates’ includes proprietary blends of terpenes made to match your mood. Choosing an effects-based vape allows you to tailor your vape to your needs that day. Take the guesswork out of getting high, and focus on the effects of your cannabis product for a more enjoyable experience.
