Sativa cannabis is one of three top cannabis strains currently classified. Other popular cannabis strains are indica cannabis and hybrid cannabis strains.
The reason cannabis dispensaries categorize marijuana with strain information is so people considering purchasing cannabis products can understand the different effects of ingesting the cannabis plant. Sativa cannabis strains tend to have more energetic effects compared to the counterpoint to indica cannabis strains, which are considered more sedative and produce an all over body buzz.

An indica cannabis strain will produce an all over body relaxation and calm, relief from stress or pain and ease the body to help you sleep.
