Most people don’t bother learning about the different types of marijuana, for most, a bud’s a bud. This mentality is changing quickly though, with hundreds of dispensaries popping up across the country cannabis connoisseurs are more prevalent than ever. It is important to understand the difference between Sativa and Indica because it will influence your “high” and shape your experience.
