Sativa Marijuana Strains
Cannabis sativa is a plant that is native to Central and South Asia. It spread by way of Africa and the Americas. Sativa plants tend to grow tall (8 to 12 feet), narrow, and sparsely flowered. The aroma of sativa tends to be quite dank and powerful. Leaves of this strain are also narrow and yellowish green (usually lighter than that of the indica plant).
Sativa strains possess properties that make them ideal for inducing feelings of euphoria and transcendence. For this reason, this type of marijuana is recommended for people who struggle with depressive mood disorders. The effects of sativa can help to improve one’s energy and positive outlook. They are also praised by people who endure attention deficit disorders—reporting the ability to have a stronger focus. Therefore, sativa is most suitable for use during the day.
Sativa plants are oftentimes bred with indica strains in order to produce hybrid strains.
