Many patients have asked our budtenders about our sativa strains and the desired effects that they can have. There are sativas that are said to be “cerebral relaxants” and then there are sativa strains that are said to be “cerebral stimulants.” So what exactly is the difference?
Cerebral relaxants will help to slow the thought processing and can aid with the quieting of the mind. It also helps with inflammation around the brain, much like a migraine medicine would.
Cerebral stimulants will cause more brain activity and contains a higher THC level, which has the possibility to over-stimulate some people, but it does also give patients an energy boost and helps to awaken the mind.
