Choosing weed used to be as simple as texting your dealer and if they were fancy enough, deciding between an indica and a sativa. That categorization is largely now seen as arbitrary, since it only notes the difference in plant shape, not effect it has on the human body, and much more has changed in the world of weed.
With marijuana legalization on the rise, the cannabis industry is bursting with detailed descriptions of weed that inform consumers of the products’ terpene content, THC and CBD levels, and the amount of cannabinoids present in each strain. Leafly, the cannabis guide known for its detailed descriptions of each strain, has updated its categorization system beyond just the indica/sativa/hybrid delineations.
