Indica, the shorter of the plants with the wide leaves, is known for its ability to affect the body, giving its users what’s been called a “couch lock” feeling. Indica strains typically provide a mellow experience that calms the mind and is excellent to use at nighttime.

Sativa, on the other hand, grows much taller and boasts leaves that are long and slender. A perfect complement to their indica brethren, sativa strains are less body and more mind, providing a cerebral high that is typically associated with the psychoactive “whoa..dude…” type of experience. It’s energy is strong and is ideal for use during daytime activities.

Cannabis products are designed for adults 21 and older. Please consume responsibly.
