What types of weed are there? There are two major types of weed, which are determined by the species of Cannabis plant they are derived from.

Below are the major three types of cannabis flowers with a brief information on each one.

Indica

The most well-known effect of indicas is that they produce a heavy body-high. They are famous for promoting a level of sedation known as “couch lock.” Indicas also have a reputation for giving you the munchies and relieving physical aches and pains. A lot of people enjoy them at bedtime to help promote sleep. It’s nearly impossible to find a pure indica nowadays due to high genetic variation from cannabis growers interbreeding plants. Regardless, smoking indica dominant cannabis flowers will definitely leave you feeling intoxicated. Indica is known for that “in the couch” feeling – more of a relaxing body high.

Sativa

Cannabis Sativa plants are the opposite of the Indica strains and grow tall and thin with narrow leaves. Sativa plants are also generally a lighter shade of green than their counterpart, the Indica strain. Sativa strains take longer to grow, mature, and require more light. Sativa plants typically have lower CBD and higher THC content. Sativa strains are often used by clients during the daytime.

Hybrid

Hybrids are simply new and unique strains that are bred from parents of different types. A hybrid theoretically possesses many or most of the beneficial medical properties of both its parents. Breeders can “cross” any two strains they desire in an effort to create a new strain that delivers the best possible medical efficacy, sometimes for particular diseases like lupus, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, and epilepsy.
