As a newbie in the world of cannabis, you probably want to differentiate marijuana strains by their smoke, appearance, smell, taste, and high, right? Well, we can say that the strains’ difference in their appearance was always vivid. Almost all marijuana strains show plenty of sticky resin, though the smell will always differ. So, to make you an expert in marijuana plants and to simplify your life, we have prepared for you the ultimate guide on the differences between the strains you will like to smoke.
In normal conditions, sativas grow taller comparing to indica plants and originate from equatorial areas, such as Thailand and Columbia. The leaves of the plant are long and narrow. Most growers say that it is the best cannabis type to grow outdoors as it reaches the heights of 20 feet! Plants start to produce buds at week 10-16. Once the flowering period is finished, the plants are ready to be harvested. The yield from sativas reaches the amount of up to 3 ounces from each plant. The plants’ flavor is so distinct that you will never confuse sativas with indicas. Sativa plants have an earthy taste that may remind you of pine. If you are still afraid of mixing the strains up, look at the strain’s name. Sativas often have “haze” in their name, while indicas have “kush.”
As we have already mentioned, indica plants tend to grow quite short and take their origin from such regions as Afghanistan and Morocco. The shape of the leaves is much broader, and the plant’s height reaches 3-4 feet. The flowering time is also shorter—8-12 weeks. The same we can say about the yield size of indicas. It is less than sativas’ and barely reaches 2.5 ounces per plant. The flavor of indicas is unbelievably sweet. The strawberry or blueberry taste will make your high even more memorable.
Any difference in the high provided by indicas and sativas?
All you need to remember is that sativas will bring you an uplifting effect, while indicas will make your body couch-locked, completely relaxed, and unmovable.
