Different kind of cannabis strains & genetics

The most famous types of cannabis are the cannabis Sativa and cannabis Indica. These species have different properties, both in appearance and effect. To be able to make a good choice from our wide assortment with cannabis seeds, it is useful if you are familiar with the different cannabis varieties.

Cannabis Sativa

Sativa weed plants are long, loosely branched and have long, narrow leaves. They are on average 1 to 3 meters high. In general, Sativa weed strains have a high THC content and a low CBD content. The effect of Sativa weed is often more spiritual, and gives a strong uplifting high.

Cannabis Indica

Indica plants are short, densely branched and have wider leaves. In general, Indica weed species have a lower THC content and a higher CBD content. The effect of Indica weed is often more physical, the feeling that you are heavily stoned and do not want to get out of your seat is also called 'couch lock' and is typical of Indica species.

Cannabis Ruderalis

There is still speculation about the origins of Cannabis Ruderalis, many believe that this species is a descendant of indica genetics adapted to the harsh climate and the shorter growing seasons of the northern hemisphere. Cannabis Ruderalis comes from areas in Asia, Central / Eastern Europe, and in particular Russia.

Most cannabis seeds you can buy nowadays are not pure Indica or Sativa but hybrids. These hybrid species are the result of a cross between different varieties.
