Different people use cannabis for different purposes but for whatever reason you are using it, you need to know that there are two broad varieties of the cannabis plant. Indica and sativa are varieties of weed and can be identified by their distinct differences. If you are not looking out for the difference, you might not be able to tell one form the other because you might think they are all the same. People who have been using the herb for a while can tell the difference even from the smell. The following will help you tell the difference between indica and sativa.

The appearance of the indica variety is different from that of sativa. The leaves are different in that indica has broad leaves while sativa leaves are slimmer. The sativa plants when it grows to maturity is very tall and you can tell it form an indica plant using this very visible feature.

Sativa has been found to have a high energy residue on the consumer while indica leaves a cool, calm and collected residue.
