Hello all you amazing OpenLeaf CBD blog readers! First I want to apologize for being so far behind on my writing. I was recently out due to surgery; but I’m back and ready to get back to work on keeping all of you informed on all the latest CBD news, as well as company updates. We are excited to announce after a set back or two, http://www.openleadcbd.com is back up and running! Our amazing webmaster was able to not only get rid of all the bugs but to revamp the site as well. He gave it a brand new look, made it even more user friendly and easier to navigate. Stop by and give us a shout! I’d also like to mention within the next several weeks, in addition to our stellar rewards program, we will have a 4.5 club.

Most everyone knows the hybrid strains are created by fusing indica and sativa strains together. Both are used for medicinal and recreational purposes – from cerebral energy to pain relief inside and out. Hybrid strains are like getting the best of both worlds.
With all the new strains that pop up all the time, it’s easy to forget that the cannabis and hemp plants have two major strains, indica and sativa. Indica strains are known for their relaxing effects. They induce a full body high and send you feelings of calm and maybe perhaps some focus. Sativa strains are known for their energizing effects. They produce more of a head high and may help with motivation; otherwise known as a cerebral head high.
What I have heard so often as of late is that the lines between the indica, sativa and hybrid strains are often blurred. The reason for this is because of so many cultivators doing so much experimenting. Because of this experimentation, hybrids can be broken down even further to indica-dominant or sativa-dominant. However, while researching this article, I came across another article in which a psychopharmacology (say that three times real fast) researcher was interviewed. He pretty much said saying one plant or another was indica or sativa was much more complicated. He went on to say you cannot simply look at a plant and determine which way it’s going to lean; there is a lot more going on inside the plant.
Because of what I just mentioned above, it does seem like the industry is moving away from classifying it’s plants as indica or sativa. What I recommend, as always, do your own research. Terpenoids are also what makes a difference in terms of effects.
