Sativa vs Indica
Sativa (left^) vs Indica (right^)
FUN FACT: these mean nothing when it comes to the effects of cannabis.
Sativa & Indica are outdated classifications of cannabis strains based solely on physical characteristics of the plant. But, its the chemical characteristics of the plant that interact with our endocannabinoid system, not the physical phenotype.
Phenotype is the physical characteristics
& Chemotype is the chemical characteristics.
Sativa/Indica classifications don’t have an effect on your high because these are classifications based solely on the phenotype of the plant. In order for us to understand how cannabis affects us, we must look at the chemical characteristics of the plant.
To help break it down, think of it this way: Do blondes really have more fun over Brunette? How can you determine how fun a person is going to be by their hair color? You cant!
