What's the difference between Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid? Everyone has their own preference when they are choosing their medicinal strain of cannabis to use because of the effects associated Sativa, Indica, or Hybrid. They all produce different effects depending on which strain you choose and are medicating with. You could be looking for a daytime use strain, to nighttime use, what is better for uplifting or pain relief. In this article, we will go through the differences of Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid.


Cannabis Sativa:


Cannabis Sativa

Cannabis Sativa is a flowering plant that was mainly found in Eastern Asia but is now grown all over the world because of indoor gardening happening. The plant grows tall and thin with narrow leaves and this plant also takes longer to grow and to mature. Sativa's are always requiring more light compared to your Indica's. It can flower up to 12 weeks long compared to some Indica plants that flower at 8 weeks. Sativas are usually grown in warmer climates compared to your colder climate areas but with indoor gardening you can grow your Sativa's just have to low stress training because they don't want to get to close to the ceilings. When used for smoking, Sativa strains provide a more revitalizing experience because the medicine produced from Sativa plants have lower CBD and higher THC counts. Sativa medicinal strains may be used for a variety of treatments for different ailments.

Cannabis Indica:



Cannabis Indica

Cannabis Indica is a plant with that grows shorter and bushier than the Sativa plants.  The Indica plants have wide short leaves and are much more stockier of a plant structure compared to your Sativas. The buds on these plants are thick and big dense buds which helps to make the plants known for having high levels of THC and CBD.  Indica plants produce a product that is used for relaxing and calming effects and is best used at night. The expression Indica "in da couch" is why many budtenders and smokers say about a heavy Indica strain.

Hybrid strains of marijuana are generally a combination of the Sativa and Indica plants.  The main goal of the hybrid plants is to create a strain with the best characteristics from both the Sativa and Indica the dominant phenos.  Hybrid strains are very common and popular for use. Hybrids typically occur in three categories. The first is the Sativa dominant hybrid is mainly used for relaxing and unwinding both physically and mentally.  The Indica dominant hybrid is mainly used in the evening for pain relief, relaxation, and sleeping. The balanced hybrid is one that is 50% Sativa and 50% Indica and this strain give one the ideal combination to balance the mind and the body.  

Hybrid Effects:

  • Pain relief

  • Nighttime Use

Hybrid Strains:

These strains are typically most of what you see in provisioning centers then Indica's compared to your Sativa dominant strains. You see these because of the quick turnaround time for growing the plants can get more cycles done compared to your longer Sativa grows.

CannaDave Overall:

I do prefer my Sativa strains especially during the daytime because I don't feel so stuck in the couch after medicating, but when I am looking to go to bed I do prefer my Indica strains. You just have to find out what works best for you and use that strain. that's the best part of Cannabis so many different strains that provide different ailments.
