Beginner Guide to Cannabis Dominance

The origins of cannabis determine its dominance. Indica refers to strains that originated from central Asia and the Indian subcontinent – Afghanistan, Pakistan, northern India, Tibet and Nepal. This type of cannabis is shorter in height with wide leaves and offers more of a body effect that is more sedating for most people.

Sativa refers to plants that originated in countries near ocean coasts.The plants grow taller than indica plans and have thin leaves. Sativa offers more of an uplifting type of effect.

Hybrid strains are a mix of both dominaces. These plants have been crossbred to offer the best effects of both. Hybrids can also lean more indica or sativa, depending on the strains used to create that hybrid.
