Indica types of cannabis have more relaxing, sedative effects. They often produce a physical reaction and a mellow high.
In contrast, Sativa is a more energetic high. These types of weed are uplifting. This is the one for you if you’re looking to do physical activity, hang out with friends or do something creative.
But these weed types are hard to get in their pure forms. More often you will find hybrids of different strains of weed. These are also created to combine the positive effects from one strain with another.
