Cannabis Sativa

Sativa strains originated in the equatorial countries of Columbia, Mexico, Thailand, and South East Asia and thrive in warmer weather. These strains are generally very potent with a high THC to CBD ratio. The effect is a soaring and energetic high. Their aroma tends to be milder than its counterparts and it generally has a flavor that is more sweet, fruity and spicy.

Cannabis Indica

These varieties originated in the Middle East. These strains have a higher CBD to THC ratio. The effect usually being a stoned and lethargic high. The smell is very pungent and it usually has an intense flavor that has a skunky or musky quality.

Cannabis Hybrids

Sativa-dominant Hybrids: Cerebral high with a relaxing body effect. Provides physical and mental relief.

Indica-dominant Hybrids:
 These strains provide a full-body pain relief, with a relaxing head high.

Indoor, Outdoor and Greenhouse

Indoor cannabis strains are, in the Northern hemisphere, generally only intended for growing indoors with artificial light. The optimal light conditions available indoors will allow these strains to reach their full potential.

Outdoor cannabis strains are those that may be grown outside during spring and summer. Their hardiness and early-flowering tendencies will allow them to ripen even in a short, cool summer.

Greenhouse strains are suitable for the widest range of growing conditions. Greenhouse cannabis seeds may be grown indoors with artificial lights just as successfully as the regular indoor strains, but they can also be grown in a greenhouse with just the power of the sun.


Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the principal psychoactive constituent (or cannabinoid) of the cannabis plant. THC has mild to moderate analgesic effects and has marked antiemetic properties.


Cannabidiol (CBD) is considered to have a wider scope of medical applications than tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). A 2010 study found that strains of cannabis containing higher concentrations of cannabidiol did not produce short-term memory impairment vs. strains with similar concentrations of THC, but lower concentrations of CBD. Cannabidiol is what gives cannabis its sedative effect.
