Marijuana is typically classified into three groups, Sativa dominant strains, Indica dominant strains, and hybrids of the two. Each strain has its own effects and medicinal uses. Sativa dominant strains typically provide what is considered a head high and is typically used for alertness, increased energy, and euphoria. Indicia dominant strains provide what is considered a body high and is typically used for relaxation, as a sleep aid, pain relief, and as an appetite stimulator.
