What is a Sativa Strain?
Sativa strains trace their origins to the tropical climates of Southeast Asia. They offer an intensely stimulating and energetic Cannabis experience. These plants grow tall and lean, in some cases over 12ft, and have long finger like leaves. Sativa’s produce long and fluffy buds, with a bright green complexion, and often characterized by fine red hairs.
Additionally, most of these strains have easily recognized aromas of pine and citrus. This is as a result of their high pinene and limonene terpene profiles. These strains often take much more time to mature than Indica’s or Hybrids.
Sativa Strains are generally more associated with their cerebral properties. Because of their CBD to THC ratio, the effects of these strains are much more mental than physical. The limonene and pinene don’t just give Sativa’s their signature scent, they are also both terpenes that promote an uplifting and euphoric Cannabis experience.
Health Benefits of Sativa Strains
The use of Sativa strains commonly has a profound impact on the users mood and mental state. The high THC content of these strains causes powerful mind altering effects, and provide a truly psychoactive Cannabis experience. As a result, they are often used to boost energy, while increasing focus. Additionally, Sativa’s can also enhance creativity and motivation in some users.
Much like their Indica counterparts, Sativa’s are also excellent at combating mental illnesses. They are often used to treat depression and feelings of anxiety. Unlike their Indica relatives, Sativa’s don’t usually cause feelings of heavy sedation, this makes them excellent for use in social situations. Because of all of these effects, these strains are more commonly associated with daytime use.
Choosing the right Sativa Strain
When deciding which strain is right for you, we always recommend that you start low and go slow. If you are new to Cannabis, start with a strain with THC levels in the mid teens and work your way up. If you’re an experience Cannabis user, some of the more potent 20%+ strains might interest you more. It all about finding the balance that is right for you. Take your time to read up on different strains and try a few similar ones to see which strain is best for your own Cannabis experience.
