Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis – Exploring the Differences in Types of Marijuana

If you’re curious about marijuana and all its intricacies, you’re not alone. Nearly 160 million people around the world currently partake according to the latest reports, and that doesn’t necessarily include medical users. Of course, millions more are probably flying under the radar.

On top of that, countless others are considering exploring the possibilities. Innumerable people are still on the fence about it, but many of them will ultimately venture over to the dank side as well.

Whether you’re simply trying to learn about cannabis and its potential benefits or equipping yourself with the right knowledge to grow your own marijuana crop, it’s important to at least understand the basics. Here at Weed Seeds USA, we know everything there is to know about the subject. We’re also dedicated to sharing our knowledge, as well as our top-quality marijuana seeds, with everyone interested.

Exploring the Different Types of Marijuana

One of the most fundamental aspects to educate yourself about is the three main types of marijuana: Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis. Each one has its own physical characteristics and unique range of effects. We’ll cover the important details you need to know about each of these cannabis categories to aid in your growing efforts.


Cannabis Sativa plants generally grow tall and thin with slender leaves. Some can reach heights of 15 feet or more, making them a bit difficult to hide if you grow them outdoors. On the other hand, their lofty stature can make them somewhat problematic for indoor grows as well. Keep in mind, though, you can use certain training methods to manage their height without stunting their growth or productivity.

This species originated in parts of Asia and other areas where the days are long, hot, and humid and the nights are warm and short-lived. Because of their origins, Sativa plants absolutely crave heat, moisture, and ample sunlight. In its purest genetic form, Sativa also needs a long growing season to mature and flower properly.

Typical Sativa Effects

In general, Sativa strains tend to have high concentrations of THC and lower amounts of CBD. That makes them popular among recreational and medical users alike. Because of their generous helpings of THC, they usually generate uplifting and euphoric effects. They also provide an energy boost and can even ramp up your creativity, focus, and cerebral function. If those are the effects you’re looking for, high-THC weed seeds would be the way to go.

People often use Sativa to combat depression, ADHD, and conditions that cause chronic pain and inflammation. Having said that, it’s also a great tool for simply having an interesting evening at home with friends. Some of our most popular Sativa strains are OG Amnesia, Sugar Fruit, and Stardawg, but we have a range of other Sativa-dominant species to choose from as well.
