Sativa and Indica

Sativa and Indica are the two main types of medicinal cannabis, with each yielding different medical benefits and physical effects. Sativas are tall, thin plants with narrow light-green leaves.  Sativa grows quickly and as high as 20 feet in one season.   Indica, on the other hand, is a short, stocky, dense plant, with broad darker green leaves.  Indica has a faster flowering time, 8 to 10 weeks versus Sativa’s 10-16, and is more commonly used to make hash.  Sativa has a fruity, floral and sweet aroma while Indica tends to have a dry, acrid, even skunk-like odor.
