Originally from countries with tropical climates, cannabis sativa is one of the best known cannabis plant varieties.
In fact, the typical leaf that people usually imagine when talking about marijuana is usually of this variety. We are facing one of the most consumed types of marijuana, generally from South America or Asia. They tend to be tall plants, being the most frequent to see in outdoor plantations
Of Asian origin, it is one of the types of marijuana that can be found naturally, especially in countries such as India or Pakistan. This variety has an intermediate size, also having much wider leaves than other varieties.
Regarding the type of effects, the indica variety usually has a slightly narcotic effect more linked to physical relaxation and analgesia, having a high content of cannabidiol or CBD and low in THC.
In countries like Russia or Siberia, a third natural variety, cannabis ruderalis, can be found. This plant, although sometimes considered a variety of cannabis sativa, has the peculiarity that it has great strength and the ability to bloom regardless of the level of luminosity.
It is usually used in hybridization to create other varieties because of it.
The three previous varieties of cannabis and marijuana can be found naturally. However, based on them the human being has been creating different varieties in order to obtain different effects or increase resistance or proliferation, through artificial selection in nurseries and plantations.
The type of effect obtained in each case depends on the type of hybrid that has been created and its origin.
