Understanding Cannabis: Indica versus Sativa
There are hundreds of different strains available in Missouri’s legal market, and it can take even the most experienced user years to find the strains that achieve the desired results.
Each cannabis strain gives the consumer a different experience, as strains are genetically unique and contain different cannabinoid and terpene profiles. Just like snowflakes, no two strains are exactly alike! Strains also have different smells and tastes based on the terpenes in their unique genetic makeup.
All cannabis plants come from the family of Cannabacae plants, under the genus name Cannabis Sativa. This is a deceptive name as there are two different types of species of cannabis: cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa. Indica and Sativa are the two terms consumers are used to hearing when describing different strains of cannabis, and each type has specific effects.
