The website Zamnesia attribute the following traits to the two strains:

Sativa: Energizing and uplifting. Stimulates creativity and thoughts. Promotes sense of well-being. Relieves headaches and migraines. Reduces nausea. Stimulates the appetite. Relieves depression.

Indica: Relaxing and laid back. Relieves pain and aches. Reduces anxiety and stress. Aids sleep. Reduces inflammation. Helps relieve spasms and seizures. Stimulates the appetite.

Independently, marijuana experts note that the plants can also create the opposite effects of the ones stated above.
