What is the difference between Sativa & Indica?

When researching strains online, you’ll likely see sativas described as cerebral, heady, uplifting, and energizing while indicas are described as relaxing, sedating, full-bodied, and stoney. It’s still perfectly valid to describe effects as sativa-like or indica-like so long as we remember that sativa- or indica-like effects don’t necessarily coincide with a plant’s sativa or indica lineage. A hybrid would be a combination of the two. Each plant has different genetics so hybrids will vary effects depending on the dominance of indica and sativa genetics present in the plant.
