Indica vs Sativa
The easiest way to walk through your strains at a dispensary is to choose between Sativa, Indica or Hybrids. Sativa is typically better for social settings, creating an energetic and creative high. Whereas Indica gives you that body buzz making it perfect for a nightcap. A hybrid is a balance between the two.
Here is a phrase to help you remember the difference between indica and sativa:
