Having trouble figuring out whether you’re smoking an indica or sativa? Here’s a handy little guide to help you figure it out. This post will tell you the easiest ways to differentiate between cannabis sativa and indica in both live plants and in dried bud. Enjoy!
In live plants, differentiating between indicas and sativas is really quite easy. Once you know what to look for, you’ll be able to tell just from a quick glance. Here’s what you need to know:
Sativas are tall plants with super thin leaves. Sativas are a bit sparse and thin with wider spaces in between branches than their indica relatives. During their flowering phase, they quickly surpass indicas in height. If you notice that your plant starts to get super tall and bush out a little more during the flowering phase, you probably have a sativa.
When grown under perfect growing conditions outdoors, sativas have been known to reach heights of up to 20 feet. Pretty crazy, right?
