Marijuana Strains
The marijuana plant is made up of thousands of plant breeds, called strains, each of which produce different effects and have unique aromas and flavors. They can vary from region to region and have all sorts of creative names but in general, they all stem from three major genetic classifications: sativa, indica, and hybrid.
