If you are following Granny’s blog you will have most likely already learned about Indica varieties of cannabis. If not check out the blog covering what Indicas are here. When it comes to cannabis there are three different varieties of strains. These include Indicas, Sativas, and Hybrids. Since we have already learned about Indicas let’s take a journey together and learn about their counterparts, Sativas.
Sativa varieties of cannabis tend to offer uplifting and energetic effects. These strains are also predominantly felt cerebrally rather than throughout the body. The head high felt for many from Sativa varieties of cannabis tend to be rather intense. For this reason, those who suffer from anxiety tend to steer away from Sativa dominant strains of cannabis. Sativa cannabis strains are preferred by those who are looking to medicate or recreate without catching a case of couch lock or becoming entirely too relaxed to go about their day.
Sativa varieties of cannabis are preferred by many consumers and patients alike as a daytime strain due to these effects. Sativa varieties of cannabis are also thought to have more flavor by many individuals however effects and flavor intensity drastically differs from person to person as we are all unique in our own way, just like the many different cannabis strains on the market today.
Sativa varieties also differ from other varieties when they are being cultivated. Sativa strains tend to be very tall and slender plants with leaves that consist of thin long fingers. This is the opposite of their Indica counterparts. Some Sativa strains that you may be aware of or may have even tried yourself include but are not limited to Sour Diesel, Green Crack, Amnesia Haze, Durban Poison, Haze, Super Sour Diesel and Acapulco Gold to name a few.
