Chemo, also known more commonly as “UBC Chemo” to cannabis users, is a 100% pure indica hybrid with unknown genetics that was bred specifically to treat patients going through chemo treatments. This powerful bud offers extremely potent heavy indica effects characterized by a high level of pain relief in both mind and body. The high is definitely considered to be a creeper – you’ll suddenly be hit with a heavy feeling behind your eyes and in the back of your neck before falling into a complete sedative stupor with potent couch-lock and a strong case of the munchies. Because of these strong effects and its insane THC level that averages between 18-21%, Chemo is ideal for treating patients suffering from nausea, depression, insomnia, nightmares, and chronic pain due to chemo, cancer, and other conditions. These nugs have an aroma of fragrant pungent earthy pine and a taste of sweet floral pine that becomes pungent and harsh upon exhale. Chemo buds have dark purple spade-shaped rock hard resinous nugs that are covered in dark rich orange curly hairs. Each nug is caked with a layer of thick chunky white crystal trichomes and a fine layer of sticky sweet resin.

Sativa and Indica are the two major types of cannabis plants which can mix together to create hybrid strains. Each strain has its own range of effects on the body and mind resulting in a wide range of medicinal benefits.
The high produced from smoking Indica bud is a strong physical body high that will make you sleepy or couch-locked and provides a deep relaxation feeling compared to a Sativa high, which is known to be more energetic and uplifting.
Marijuana strains range from pure sativas to pure indicas and hybrid strains consisting of both indica and sativa (30% indica-70% sativa, 50%-50% combinations, 80% indica-20% sativa). Because Sativa and Indica buds have very different medicinal benefits and effects, certain strains can be targeted to better treat specific illnesses.
Indica dominant marijuana strains tend to have a strong sweet or sour odor to the buds (ex. Kush, OG Kush) providing a very relaxing and strong body high that is helpful in treating general anxiety, body pain, and sleeping disorders.
Indicas are very effective for overall pain relief and is often used to treat insomnia for many people. Indica buds are most commonly smoked by medical marijuana patients in the late evening or even right before bed due to how sleepy and tired you become when high from an indica strain of marijuana, like Kush.
Benefits of Indica:
- Relieves body pain
- Relaxes muscles
- Relieves spasms, reduces seizures
- Relieves headaches and migraines
- Relieves anxiety or stress
Sativa dominant marijuana strains tend to have a more grassy type odor to the buds providing an uplifting, energetic and cerebral high that is best suited for daytime smoking. A sativa high is one filled with creativity and energy as being high on sativa can spark new ideas and creations. Many artists take advantage of the creative powers of cannabis sativa (marijuana) to create paintings.
Benefits of Sativa:
- Feelings of well-being and at-ease
- Up-lifting and cerebral thoughts
- Stimulates and energizes
- Increases focus and creativity
- Fights depression
