Cannabis Strains and Varieties
Original Cannabis plants were either Sativa or Indica. Sativa plants grew around the equator in hot countries with long Summers and plenty of daily sunlight. Indica plants grew in more harsh terrain, such as the Hindu Kush mountains, receiving fewer hours of sunlight, and shorter Summers.
These two distinctly difference types of Cannabis produce different effects, ranging from the euphoric, cerebral high generated by the Sativa’s, to the pain-numbing ‘body-stone’ created by the Indica strains. The flavors and aromas from these different strains can also vary widely from a pleasant citrus, fruity taste, to a musky, ‘skunky’ Cheese.
