"What is the difference between indica and sativa?"


This question is in the top five we most often get asked. How a strain is grown really determines all the cannabis plant's nuances, like terpene profile and potency, however, if the plant is an indica or sativa also contributes to the plant's overall effect. Here are some basic facts about the Indica and Sativa strains.
