Omega, There is bud, and then there is Kind bud…And when you find kind bud, you’ll remember it for years. Oh yeah, most definitely (Tomcat thinking back to his Honeymoon on the Western Slope of Colorado and that tiny, miniscule bud that rocked his world)(well, that bud and the sex that followed )!
Sativa: Tall plants (3 meters) best grown outdoors, higher pure THC content. Produces an “up” active high- smoke this when you want to go outside and throw a frisbee, take a hike, do something fun and social. A head high.
Indica: Smaller plants, sometimes grow like a bush, while it can still have a very high pure THC content, there are other cannabinoids that are present that produce a mellower high. Smoke this when you want to watch a cool movie, hang out and be stoney with friends, or maybe do something outdoors and get lost in the activity. A body high.
Hybrids: Can produce many different combinations of effects depending on the parent plants. Everything from one-hit, comatose inducing weed (not really a coma, but your butt is NOT getting out of that couch) to hallucinations to ??? Different weed affects different people differently.
There is also Ruderalis pot that grows mainly in Eastern Europe and Russia. I guess it’s fairly rough on the lungs and not that potent- I don’t know though.
But because of pot’s nature, set and setting have a lot to do with the experience. Set is what you bring to the drug mentally and physically, and Setting is where you do it. That is why people suggest trying strong pot with close friends that you trust so that you feel comfortable (Set) in a safe place that won’t shock you (Setting).
