Strains of Marijuana: Cannabis Indica vs. Sativa

The Differences between Cannabis Indica and Sativa plants.

Cannabis INDICA - Fat Leaves, Shorter Plant, Faster Flowering

Indicas originally come from the hash producing countries of the world like Afghanistan, Morocco, and Tibet. They are shorter dense plants, with broad leaves and often grow a darker green. After flowering starts they will be mature in 6 to 8 weeks. Indica yield is usually higher than Sativa, and shorter growing season. Better for indoor growing, because they don't get as tall.

Cannabis SATIVA - Thin Leaves, Taller Plant, Longer Flowering

Sativas are just about the opposite of Indicas. They are tall, thin plants, with much narrower leaves and grow a lighter green in color. They grow quickly and can reach outdoor heights of 20 feet in a single season. They originally come from Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Southeast Asia. Once flowering has begun, they can take anywhere from 10 to 16 weeks to fully mature.

Sativa typically takes longer to germinate and flower also, and grow more gangly than Indica breeds. Yield is usually lower than Indica, but can be very potent. Sativa grows taller and has a longer flowering period, so they are better suited for growing outdoors.
