Popular Sativa Strains
Sativa strains are known for their energizing effects. An Indica will usually hit you with a sedative feeling throughout your body, whereas a Sativa will give you a cerebral high.
It’s the kind of weed that will make you laugh. It’s great for evenings spent in socializing, conversations, and watching movies. If the strain is strong enough, it can make you laugh uncontrollably. That’s one of the side effects that Sativas may cause. You might start feeling like you cannot control your laughter, and that may lead to paranoia.
Sativas are perfect for recreational consumers, who want to engage in deep conversations, write, think of creative ideas, and make art. These strains will not make you sleepy. On the contrary, they have an uplifting effect, which makes them great for daytime use.
In appearance, Sativa strains are more “elegant” than Indicas. They grow thinner and taller. An Indica reaches between 3 and 6 feet in height, whereas a Sativa can reach up to 20 feet. The leaves are longer, and the plant is less dense. When compared to Indicas, Sativas tend to have a lower concentration of CBD. However, that depends on each strain.
In terms of nurturing, Sativas succeed in warmer climates. These plants take longer to reach maturity, and they have a more extended flowering season.
As we already said, you shouldn’t only look at the “Sativa or Indica” factor when choosing the right strain. You should look at the THC and terpene content, as well as the characteristics of personal stress.
