While browsing and shopping for Cannabis, you may notice that they are broken up into three different categories – Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. While Indica often leaves you sedated and “in da couch”, sativa strains offer a euphoric uplifting high. Hybrids, as you may have guessed, offer a bit of both! Indica vs Sativa, what are the differences? Let’s get into it.
