What is a marijuana strain?

  • Indica
  • Sativa
  • Hybrid

Indica has a relaxing effect on the user and Sativa has more of an energizing effect, while the hybrid is a combination of both. Beyond these categories, they can divide the type of cannabis into strains. They are a different breed of cannabis and have different effects on the user.
