Best Terpenes for Different Times of the Day
By now we’ve all heard the old stoner adage, sativa for energy and alertness, indica for sleep and relaxation – however, now we know that these categorizations hold little, if any, value or accuracy. Although they have some different characteristics during cultivation (sativas are usually tall and lean while indicas grow short and bushy), genetically, there is not much difference between sativa and indica strains, they’re basically all hybrids. The real variation lies in the different blends of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds in each plant. Looking at it with this newfound knowledge, are there certain terpenes work best at different points in the day?

Dispelling the indica vs sativa myth
Dr Ethan Russo, Director of Research and Development for the International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute (ICCI), a well-renowned researcher and industry leader, has this to say on the matter: “There are biochemically distinct strains of Cannabis, but the sativa/indica distinction as commonly applied in the lay literature is total nonsense and an exercise in futility.” Let me explain further.
While cannabis has been cultivated for thousands of years, as far back as 8000 BCE according to some research, the terms indica and sativa weren’t introduced until sometime during the 18th century. The term ‘sativa’ is a Latin botanical adjective meaning cultivated. ‘Cannabis Sativa’ was eventually became the common term used to describe low-THC plants being grown for seed and fiber in Europe and western Eurasia, because that was the type of cannabis that was being cultivated at the time. Cannabis Indica was assigned to psychoactive varieties discovered in India, where it was cultivated for religious purposes, processed into hashish, and the seeds and fiber were utilized as well. So far, the differences are purely regional and have nothing to do with the effects of each type.
