Video: Three Main Types of Cannabis
Known for their relaxing body high and the infamous “couch lock”, Indica strains are a popular choice for those suffering from pain, anxiety or insomnia. Buds tend to be darker and denser, and typically contain higher levels of CBD, a cannabinoid known for its restorative properties
Sativas are a popular choice for the recreational consumer because they tend to contain higher levels of the cannabinoid, THC, or the primary psychoactive component in cannabis. The resulting high tends to be more uplifting and energetic, though it can cause problems for those who experience marijuana-induced paranoid or anxiety.
Hybrid cannabis strains are made by crossing the genotypes of two different strains through self-pollination. The resulting strain might land anywhere on the Indica/Sativa spectrum, depending on the characteristics of the final phenotype.
