    Is it true that it doesn’t matter if it’s Sativa or Indica when it comes to THC distillate? Someone told me it doesn’t matter because it is just the THC.

    If this is true, then I can just pick up the Sativa THC distillate. TIA

    Some might claim it's not the strain's THC that matters, but the terpenes.

    The jury is still out on if a plant being a sativa or an indica will have a different effect upon a person. If it does, why? The best supposition, in my mind, has to do with the particular plant's terpene profile and the so called entourage effect. Since distilling strips terpenes, a pure distillate will not not indicate to a user the terpene profile or any other difference between the underlying plant.

    That's one reason so many manufacturers of distillate will re-introduce some terpene profile they determine reflects the underlying plant.

    The bottom line is, I don't think it will make much difference if the distillate is sativa or indica. The main difference will probably be reflected in the ratios of different cannabinoids in the dose. I suppose there is also a possibility the re-introduced (Or, just added.) terpenes will affect the results.

    They do add back cannabis derived terpenes, so I will be adding some of my own Indica terpenes to it. Thank you!
