Sativa strains are typically characterized as having a more cerebral, energetic effect than their indica counterparts. Often chosen as a daytime compliment, the effect of sativa strains is said to best suit activity and creativity. Athletes and artists alike enjoy the energetic buzz that comes with Sativa.
Indica strains are more often characterized as having a more body-focused, relaxing effect than sativa strains. Usually selected for nighttime use, indica strains are most notably described as calming and body-focused. A great evening strain to help you unwind and get ready for bed.
As you might expect, hybrid strains are bred from both indica and sativa cultivars. They can take many forms (and levels of indica/sativa dominance) based on individual strain genetics, so the effects of hybrid strains can be more difficult to determine.
