Indica Vs Sativa

The Difference Between the Two Cannabis Plants


We sometimes receive calls that will ask about what type of weed should they order? The answer would be depending of what kind of effect you want to experience when you smoke weed. We usually have a variety of Sativas and Indicas available on our web site. So you will ask, what is Sativa and Indica?


Today’s article will let us distinguish the difference between an indica and sativa type of weed.


To start, indica and sativa are the two major types of cannabis plants. When the two types are mixed, a “hybrid” type is formed and each types has different effects on body and mind.



Indica typically grow shot and wide while Sativa grow tall and thin. Indica plants are better grown indoor because they grow short and Sativa are better grown outdoor because it can get as high as 25 ft. in height. Indica’s flowering time is shorter, about 8-12 weeks while sativa’s will take about 10-16 weeks to grow.

Indicas have fat fan leaves, where each leaf segment nearly touches each other or even overlaps a little. Sativa leaves look more like thin little fingers.

In terms of taste, Indicas are sweet and fruity while sativas are earthy and piny.



The dried buds are are a little bit more difficult to differentiate because they might look like hybrids but once you know the basic features of each type, in a way, you can make an educated guess as to whether or not your strain is indica or sativa dominant.

Sativa’s buds are usually long, less dense, wispy bud or fluffy, often with red or orange coloring and have a sweeter or lighter aroma.

Indica’s buds are short, heavy, compact and dense, often purple coloring and have thick pungent aroma.




Most indica strains originated from the Hindu Kush region of the Middle East like Turkey, Morocco and Afghanistan while most sativa strains originated from those countries near the equator like Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Southeast Asia.

It makes sense when you want to distinguish each strain when it comes to the name of the weed. Indicas usually have Kush at the end while sativas have Haze.
