Flowers, also known as buds, are an unprocessed part of the cannabis plant that contains the highest levels of THC, the chemical responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive effects. Flowers will generally either be Sativas, Indicas or hybrids of the two. In general, Sativa flowers impart energy to its users, whereas Indicas are typically heavy on the body.
