Are you looking for pain relief or an artistic boost? Maybe you’re interested in relaxation? There are many different cannabis strains, and the experience you’re looking for will determine which you should choose. There are two major types of cannabis plants: indica and sativa. Indica is usually the go-to choice for pain relief and relaxation, whereas sativa is known for a more invigorating, “cerebral” high. Individual marijuana strains can be indica, sativa or a hybrid of both
Indica is a shorter, bushier plant that is known for its relaxing effect. Smelling your weed will often tell you if it’s indica, as these strains tend to smell very sweet or sour.
The sleepy or relaxed state that indica produces makes these strains ideal for evening or nighttime smoking and a popular choice for pain management. Indica is also often used to treat insomnia, anxiety and stress, as well as to produce a pleasurable relaxation in recreational users.
If the relaxing effects of indica appeal to you, we carry a variety of popular strains you can try, such as Jedi OG, Colorado-based 303 and several different varieties of Kush.
Sativa is the polar opposite of indica. Its plants are tall and thin, sometimes growing to 15 or 20 feet. Unlike indica’s strong sweet or sour smell, sativa has more of a grassy or herbal odor.
Sativa also has the opposite effect of indica. Sativa strains create an uplifting and energizing high, often accompanied by bursts of creativity and focus. This makes it a popular choice for artists and other creative souls, as well as an excellent treatment for depression. Sativa is also best suited for daytime smoking.

Hybrid strains combine the best of both types of cannabis to produce very specific types of highs, which can be used to target specific conditions or generate a specific kind of high. Examples of hybrid strains include Red Dragon, New York Purple Dream and Strawberry Cough.
