Sativa cannabis strain
Due to their quick vegetative growth cycle, Sativa cannabis is described as a taller marijuana plant with small, narrow leaves. The modern leaf sativa is commonly referred to as the indica ‘s physical opposite.
Since it has been historically found in warmer climates, the plant never had a need to develop adaptive traits to survive the cold.
Jack Herer, Sour Diesel, Blue Dream, Harlequin, and Super Silver Haze are common sativa strains.
The toxicity of sativa
Sativa strains are known as having an upper, euphoric “head high” producing an energizing effect and enhancing creativity due to the higher THC levels and low CBD levels. Users convey that they prefer to laugh more and experience better visuals. But it is important to remember that there is also an rise in anxiety associated with these higher levels of THC.
Because of its lighter effects Sativa is a common strain to wake-n-bake with or smoke midday.
Current scientific research has shown that these results are not only associated with indica strains or sativa strains, but, due to recent legalization campaigns, an rise in marijuana popularity and a cross-breeding boom, suggests that almost all marijuana today is a hybrid.
