There are two different varieties of Cannabis plants: Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa. Although the two are of the same species, they differ in physical appearance and the effects after consumption. Indica plants appear to be short and bushy, while Sativa is long and thin. Indica marijuana has more effects on body organs, while Sativa plants have more mental effects. The two can freely interbreed, given that they are varieties of Cannabis plants but not individual species. Consequently, blending them gives the best indica strains. Below is the list of the top 10 strains:
