Most consumers have used two of these three cannabis types (indica and sativa) as a standard for predicting effects.
- Indica strains are believed to be physically sedating, which make them perfect for relaxing with a movie or as a nightcap before bed.
- Sativa strains are said to provide invigorating, uplifting cerebral effects that pair well with physical activity, social gatherings, and creative projects.
- Hybrid strains are thought to fall somewhere in between, offering a balance of indica and sativa effects.
When you use the chemical ingredients of a strain to guide your purchasing decision, you’re more likely to find the types of strains that agree with your body.
