While many of you may have thought all cannabis is created equal, that’s actually not the case, as there are two predominant strains with subtle differences between them. A read-through of this list may help you understand why certain batches of weed result in different effects than others.
6 Differences Between Sativa and Indica Strains
Have you ever wondered why some batches of weed are just better than others in both taste and effect? It has a lot to do with the two predominant strains and the varying differences between them.
1. Strain Origins

Donald Trump just signed the 2018 Farm Bill, legalizing industrial hemp in the United States — a variety of cannabis that does not produce the psychoactive component of marijuana — paving the way to legitimacy for an agricultural sector that has been operating on the fringe of the law.
