One of the primary differences between sativa and indica is their appearance. While sativa plants have light green, skinny leaves, indica plants have dark green, full bodied leaves.
Indicas are generally known to produce more of a body high, with the stronger strains providing a sedative effect. Indicas work well for those who suffer from pain or insomnia. Some indica strains also help relax the mind and leaves the user more social.
