Discover the Difference Between Indica & Sativa

Everything you need to know about strains. Not all strains of cannabis are the same.


What is a strain?

Strain is used to differentiate between cannabis sativa and indica. It refers to the specific breed of each individual plant. Over the years, familial strains have divided into specific subsections. And although strains may share lineage, the differences are numerous.

Indica Strains

Indica strains have a relaxing, sedative effect and are often used to:

  • Reduce stress

  • Relieve pain

  • Limit anxiety

Indica strains are a bushy plant that can grow between 3 and 6 feet. They are suitable for growing indoors.

Sativa Strains

Sativa strains have an uplifting effect and offer a cerebral high that includes:

  • Laughing uncontrollably

  • Engaging in in-depth conversations

  • Thinking creatively

Sativa strains grow tall and thin -- the plant can grow up to 20 feet tall in an outside garden.

Hybrid Strains

Hybrid strains offer a mix of effects, combining the traits the inherited from their parent strains. Hybrids are known to:

  • Offer a relaxing body effect

  • Create balance of mind and body

  • Delivery full body pain relief

Of the roughly 779 strains, more than half of them are hybrids.
