Cannabis is composed of two main types: Sativa and Indica. Often combined to create hybrid strains, each variety has its own unique attributes.

Cannabis Sativa

Morphology

Tall, around 12 feet but growing upwards of 25 feet, with long, thin leaves that are usually a lighter green than Indica leaves. Open branch structure with elongated buds, and light, fruit aromas. These can take longer to reach maturity, needing between 9-12 weeks, and often have a lower yield than Indicas. Typically have higher THC to CBD ratios.

Geography

Sativa plants originate from warm, lowland regions, such as Europe and Central Asia. These plants do well in higher heat and humidity.

MORPHOLOGY

Short, generally less than six feet, denser buds, and shorter flowering times. Closely populated branch and leaf structure contain shorter and broader petals, usually a darker green than Sativas. Tend toward the stronger, muskier scents and flavor profiles. Can reach maturity in 6-8 weeks, and typically have a higher yield, and CBD to THC ratios, than Sativas.

Geography

Indica plants originate from higher altitudes, such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and surrounding areas.

Hybrid strains are considered a cross between any of these varieties. Sativa and Indica dominance can be identified by analyzing the structure of the flower along with the terpene data, which will correlate to the specific effects that each strain produces. Depending on which strain is dominant, time to maturity is between 6-12 weeks, and yield amounts vary at harvest.

Growers select strains to create a desired aroma, flavor or effect. A Sativa-dominant hybrid may provide a stimulating creative high while still relaxing the body. An Indica-dominant hybrid may relieve stress without causing drowsiness.

Cannabis consists of more than 60 compounds known as Cannabinoids. As science and technology create a better understandings of cannabis, it’s becoming clear there is much more to marijuana than its cannabinoid content. Certain cannabis aromas are indicators of other therapeutic compounds found in strains, of which there are two main types: Sativa and Indica, often combined to create Hybrid strains.
