    Default What causes different Marijuana highs

    If THC is the main compound that gets you high why is it a sativa high different to a indica high.
    Is it the combination and mix of other compounds like CBD etc that alters the effects .

    If So, would pure sativa THC give exactly the same high as indica THC .

    Sativas are more a mind high whereas indicas give you a body high.

    This is what I've read. Go sativa if you want to enhance creativity, and indica if you want to conk out on the couch haha

    the reason is what % is each Cannabinoid and there precursors

    THCA (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid)
    CBGA (Cannabigerolic acid)
    CBDA (Cannabidiolic acid)
    CBCA (Cannabichromenenic acid)
    CBGVA (Cannabigerovarinic acid)
    THCVA (Tetrahydrocanabivarinic acid)
    CBDVA (Cannabidivarinic acid)
    CBCVA (Cannabichromevarinic acid)

    those are just the main 8, think theres 100's of different Cannabinoids if i remember

    Great answer. I have read that the terpines change the effect as well.

    This ignors the distinct differences achieved with each strain that are a result of their specific lineage and chemical makeup. Different strains have different percentages of each cannabinoid and terpine. The different combinations have slight differences that can be night and day for some. I have difficulty eating and sleeping. Of the many strains I have tried only 30% really get me eating heavy and 5% give me a good nights sleep.

    Ya obviously it's an oversimplification and just general guidance It's also outdated when you look at the multitude of different phenotypes.

    On the west coast a lot of the shops give you lists of major effects for everything they sell and break stuff into day vs night use.

    I check into the effects before I get seeds.

    So are we saying , THC alone gives the same effect regardless of strain but it’s the actual mix of other cannabinoids that gives you the various types of highs .

    yeap thats it , THC is just thc regardless of where its found , That said thc starts life as THCA and is turned THC when we smoke / decarb it , ( not sure thca is our freind )

    Its a magic mix of all the Cannabinoid's working together that give the good effects along with the Terpenes.

    Terpenes are probs massively underrated in cannabis as we already know how many other medications can be made using terpenes

    I have no idea what makes strains different. My smoking experience before growing was mainly Moroccan Hash which I loved sadly now not available.

    I always thought weed was weed, how wrong could I be. To be truthful I think many of the seed breeders accounts of how the smoke will affect you are quite accurate.

    My problem is sleeping or not. Only a few strains put me to sleep even some pure indica can have my mind racing.

    Might try some GDP next run as I am told this is knock out.

    Do we know much the about effects of specific combinations of thc/cannabinoids/terpenes etc .
    For example : What combo triggers happiness , which triggers dry mouth, laughing, paranoia or dizziness effects etc .

    Can we yet pinpoint the exact ratios and mixes or the compounds for specific desired effects .

    Imho . I dont think its the thc alone that givez the high .

    Ive smoked some 15% stuff and 25% stuff and some of the lower % ones knocked me out solidly . All in the oils and the terps also . Its much more then just thc . Theres 1000+ different compounds in these plants tbh and just breeding to get higher thc and breeding out the other good stuff aint good .

    I’ve been doing a bit more research on this , it’s a minefield and a lot more complex than first thought . There’s a lot they don’t know regarding the effects of the many different cannabis compounds.
    All very interesting .
