Sativa vs Indica – What is the Difference?

Legal marijuana is becoming more and more available. As more US states pass medical and/or adult use of cannabis, public interest and public health are at a crossroads.

With it, consumers are being faced with new terms requiring a deeper understanding of plant genetics. Terms including indica, sativa, and hybrid are present at dispensaries across the world, as are the terms dabs, concentrates, and edibles.

This video brings into focus the differences between two of the most common phenotypes of cannabis: Sativa and Indica.

The story of sativa vs indica illustrates the basic differences in effects users may experience. Sativa cannabis strains typically influence more uplifting experiences and are used commonly during the day as a result. Indica cannabis strains, conversely, are commonly associated with more sedate, relaxing experiences.
