When it comes to marijuana, the number of strains can seem monumental. Add to that the number of crazy names that various growers and marijuana fans have come up with to label them and it seems that there are a million types of strains all with entirely different functions. The easiest way to approach the chemistry behind the effects and uses of each strain is to put them into 3 primary categories: Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid strains.
Indica and Sativa were both introduced as terminology in the 18th century when growers, users, and scientists noticed that there were key differences in the types of species of cannabis. The plants from Europe and Western Eurasia came to be known as the Sativa breeds while the Indica strains described the varities that were discovered in India. Since then, the terms have shifted from their original definitions and come to encompass new qualities with some overlap and less of a focus on the global areas that they were originally found to be cultivated.
