What is Sativa?


Sativa and indica are the most well known subspecies of cannabis. Although they have very different appearances, growing cycles, and native environments, these two types of cannabis are incredibly popular for medical and recreational use and offer many benefits.

Sativa strains originated in an area around the equator and can be found in countries like Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and several African Nations.

Sativa plants grow much taller than their indica counterparts; they can be as tall as 6 feet! They’re tall skinny plants with long thin leaves. Cannabis sativa has a long growing cycle. Plants may take up to 18 weeks to mature.  Sativa buds run along the length of a branch and tend grow larger than indica buds, however, they usually weigh less as they are less dense.

When consumed, sativas typically produce a “heady” or creative and energized feeling that is often accompanied by the giggles. This is a result of the canabinoids  found in sativas especially the high THC content! Knowing this information can help you choose the right strain for you.
