A lot of us rely on coffee everyday to get going in life. Even before I started taking sedative medications for health issues, I struggled with drowsiness in the days. This is anathema to work performance, because I slow to a grinding halt if I can’t get my brain laboring at the normal capacity. I started drinking coffee in high university & I haven’t let up since. I can’t imagine being stranded someplace separate from access to some form of coffee, however it did happen on a family trip once overseas. That was a easily tiring & lethargic more than six days, regardless of the great location. In the time since, I have regularly used caffeine on a yearly basis with really no break. Now I can supplement it with cannabis products to get stress & anxiety fighting effects at the same time. When I started using cannabis, I wanted to learn more about sativas & how they affect the mind. People had told me that sativa strains weren’t as sedating as indicas & were good for morning smoking. I don’t know much about the pharmacology, however I know that it’s particular terpenes that are correctly found in indicas that make them sedating. Likewise, there are terpenes in sativas that make them mentally stimulating & cerebral. That’s why some strains have a combination of effects even if they’re not strictly labeled as hybrids. There are so many factors in the growing process that affect the final product that lands in your pipe. Certain nutrients can stimulate some terpenes to stay in higher concentrations than others.
