Sativa vs. Indica - what's the difference?

There are literally thousands of cannabis strains available, but their effects can be simplified by two primary constituents. Most cannabis strains contain both Sativa and Indica in varying percentages, and you will commonly see numbers like 60/40 Indica/Sativa, or 80/20 Sativa/Indica. The combination ythat will work best for you depends on your particular medical condition.

Sativa produces a more alert, cerebral and functional effect. For a relaxing yet alert effect, look for a strain with a higher Sativa content, such as 80/20 Sativa/Indica. Generally, sativa strains produce the following effects:

  • Reduces depression
  • Relieves headaches and migraines
  • Energizes and stimulates
  • Reduces awareness of pain
  • Increases focus and creativity
  • Reduces nausea
  • Stimulates appetite
  • Supports immune system

Indica strains produce a deeper, more relaxed and full-body effect, and generally posess the following attributes:

  • Reduces pain
  • Relaxes muscle spasms
  • Stimulates appetite
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Aids sleep
  • Relieves headache and migraines
  • Reduces intra-ocular pressure (glaucoma)
  • Anti-convulsant

Can you refer me to a doctor?

No. It is the responsibility of the patient to work with a physician with whom he/she has a bona fide doctor-patient relationship. Green Life Medical Center will not recommend a physician for you, as ideally it should be a medical practitioner with whom you have an existing relationship, and knows your medical history.

Where can I legally use my medicine?

No patient shall: Engage in the medical use of marijuana in a way that endangers the health or well-being of any person; or engage in the medical use of marijuana in plain view of, or in a place open to, the general public. Law enforcement has informed the Medical Marijuana Registry of the following: Any place outside of the patient’s home is considered public. “In plain view” also includes the patient’s yard or garage if that patient can be seen using their medicine by neighbors.

Why can’t I go to a pharmacy to fill a prescription for medical marijuana?

Pharmacies can only dispense medications that are prescribed. Marijuana is currently classified by the federal government as a Schedule I drug, which means it cannot be prescribed by any health care professional. Amendment 20 allows doctors to recommend marijuana, and it allows patients to grow their own medical marijuana for their private use.

How is my confidentiality protected?

Your confidentiality is protected by law and by the procedures used by the registry. No lists of doctors, patients of caregivers are given out to anyone. Local law enforcement may only contact the registry to verify the information on a specific identification card. The registry database resides on a stand-alone computer and is password protected and encrypted. The office and all of its contents are locked at night when the registry administrator is out of the office.

How does my card protect me?

A patient may engage in the medical use of marijuana, with no more marijuana than is medically necessary to address a debilitating medical condition. A patient's medical use of marijuana, within the following limits, is lawful: No more than two ounces of a usable form of marijuana; and no more than six marijuana plants, with three or fewer being mature, flowering plants that are producing a usable form of marijuana.

What if I move or my caregiver moves? What if I want to change my caregiver?

When there has been a change in the name, address, physician, or primary caregiver of a patient who has qualified for a registry identification card, that patient must notify the registry of any such change within ten days. A patient who has not designated a primary caregiver at the time of application may do so in writing at any time during the effective period of the registry identification card, and the primary caregiver may act in this capacity after such designation. Can I use my Colorado Medical Marijuana Registry identification card in another state? At this time, there are no “reciprocity” agreements with other states to recognize the Colorado law except in Montana and Rhode Island.
