Flower contains a full spectrum of cannabinoids that help to create the psychoactive effects experienced when smoking marijuana. It also contains flavonoids and trichomes, a significant source of THC and terpenes, the organic aromas found in the oils of flowering marijuana
What are the Different Types of Marijuana Flower?When you visit a dispensary, you’ll notice that bud flower is classified into three different types. While science has proven that there isn’t a whole lot of difference between the three types of marijuana, cannabis enthusiasts still insist that their experience may vary based on which type they’re consuming. The three types are:
- Sativa: This plant typically has lighter colored, thin-bladed leaves and grows up to twice as tall as the average person. While sativa is touted as being uplifting, there is no research to back up those claims.
- Indica: Short, squat, and bushy, indica is the smaller, thicker, more compact version of marijuana. Indica is popular among cannabis enthusiasts for its mellow vibes, but there is no scientific research that backs up indica’s reputation for couch lock.
- Hybrid: For people that don’t have access to landraces and like to vary their experience, hybrids are a great option. Hybrids are a blend of both indica and sativa and offer their own unique effects from person to person.
