This Chart Shows the Difference Between Sativa and Indica Strains

Just because someone knows how to roll a joint or visits a local dispensary, doesn't mean they know the all the little specificities about cannabis. One of those specificities is the difference between sativa and indica strains of marijuana. Luckily, there are people out there who can help those people out.

A user on the r/Trees subreddit (which is not a forum for fans of pine or oak) posted a handy-dandy guide to the differences between sativa and indica strains. Take a look:

sativa vs indica chart comparison

A commenter on the original Reddit thread noted that most marijuana you'll find is most likely a hybrid of the two strains, and that it's actually fairly rare to run into a pure sativa or indica strain. But at least this chart will help you not sound like a complete noob the next time you're smoking up with any of your stoner buddies.

Late last year, Michigan became the first midwestern state to legalize adult recreational cannabis use. Unfortunately, Michigan is still figuring out the rules for recreational cannabis sales, which means you can’t actually purchase any yet. While those rules are expected by June, a new report paints a rosy picture of the future of legal recreational cannabis in Michigan and the midwest.
