Frequently asked questions about Sativa
Cannabis Sativa seeds come from Sativa plants that originate from equatorial regions in South and Central America and Southeast Asia, including tropical countries like Thailand, Mexico, India, Jamaica, etc. Sativa varieties are better suited for warm climates. Mature plants are known for their tall and skinny structure, thin and bladed leaves, sweet and fruit aromas, and high yields. Compared to Indicas, they take longer to grow and produce buds that often have psychoactive and cerebral effects and can be used as a therapeutic alternative for mental illnesses. Sativa boosts creativity, relieves stress, suppresses appetite, and improves sleep cycles. It induces energizing head highs and is preferred for daytime consumption.
Sativa weed seeds are a cannabis product. If you live in a U.S. state where cannabis use is illegal, Sativa seeds for sale are also outlawed. You can buy them from online seed banks as souvenirs, which can be risky. If you reside in a state with legalized marijuana use and home cultivation, you can buy Sativa seeds legally. To cut risks, purchase them from local or in-state providers so the package doesn’t have to cross the state borders. Aside from being traded online, the seeds are sold in dispensaries, but you will hardly have access to their multiple varieties since dispensaries rarely specialize in seed sales only. So, online suppliers offer a wider selection. Find a reliable vendor or breeder to get the best Sativa seeds, and be sure of quality genetics and heavy yields.
Sativa marijuana seeds look like any other weed seeds. The 100% way to know its genetics is to grow them; however, expert growers can tell one from another by visual differences. Thus, Sativa cannabis seeds are said to be smaller and rounder, while Indicas are larger and have a striped shell. When it comes to plants, they differ in origin, smell, appearance, growth patterns, and effects. Sativas are taller, with long and thin foliage and light buds. They need plenty of space to grow and bring larger yields. Their prevalent aromas are citrus, fruit, or herbal with sweet notes. Indica plants are squat and short, with wide leaves and dense buds. They have an earthy, skunk, or pungent smell and produce average yields.
Experienced cultivators report that Sativa strain seeds are more difficult to grow than Indicas. The main reason is that this cannabis variety gives tall and slow-growing plants; however, such a tough plant can develop generous yields. Sativas don’t require fertilizers during their first 2-3 weeks of growth. When planting seedlings, avoid compacting the soil and ensure its pH level of 6.5-7.2. Install an effective ventilation system and provide good lighting. Plants take a week or two longer in bloom and need 10-11 weeks or even more to flower. They thrive in a tropical climate and humid atmosphere. While flowering, they continue to grow and can gain up to 200-300% of their vegetative height during this stage.
Sativa strains have a higher THC content than their Indica counterparts. Smoking Sativa buds provides cerebral, uplifting, mood-elevating, and euphoric effects. Their CBD-rich varieties are popular with medical users due to their anti-inflammatory effects. The high is often creative, stimulating, and energizing, with less “body stone” than in Indica strains. Growers from around the globe choose this weed type to cope with symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, cramp-like pain, joint and muscle aches, and other ailments. Sativa stimulates conversation and sociability, prompts giggles due to increased serotonin levels, and tends to be consumed during the day. As the endocannabinoid system is individual in each person, many cannabis users find strong similarities between Sativa and Indica effects.
