As most of you already know, cannabis comes in a variety of chemical makeups. There are sativas and indicas, each with their own differing levels of CBD and THC. Because of these chemical variations, people tend to use different types to achieve a desired effect.
But when you look at the chemical makeups between the two, generally we see that indica strains are higher in THC than CBD (creating a ‘heavier’ high), and sativas are higher in CBD.
Not that THC is a bad thing, but it has been linked to feelings of paranoia and anxiety. So, using an indica strain, or indica-derived product, may cause anxiety more frequently than a sativa.
Depending on what type of product you’re using, and what specific strains (and chemical compositions) are present, you may be more apt to experience anxiety.
