Indica Vs. Sativa, what is the difference?

Cannabis Sativa Strain: Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is one of those strains that everyone has heard of; and with good reason! The majority of people who have smoked Sour Diesel (sometimes referred to as Sour D), report that the strain makes them feel outgoing, happy, and relives any pain they were experiencing beforehand.
