What is a Sativa Cannabis Strain? 

Cannabis sativa was first classified by Carl Linnaeus in the mid-18th century, but its role in human history began much earlier. Like Cannabis Indica, the first sativa strains originated in East Asia but quickly spread throughout the world. Early humans used sativa plants for a variety of purposes, from food and fiber to religious services and much more. Ultimately, each part of the plant was harvested for a unique purpose. Compared to indica plants, sativa cannabis plants are generally larger and the leaves are much narrower. Sativas also have a lighter green color than their indica cousins. Its flavors and aromas are primarily earthy and musky. 

Additionally, sativa strains tend to contain more CBD than THC, while indica strains and some hybrids tend to contain more THC. For this reason, sativas are often used to relieve anxiety.In addition to CBD and THC, sativa plants can contain almost 500 other compounds. Currently, breeders divide sativas into three main groups. The former are plants grown for fiber production and generally consist of long stems with numerous branches. The second group of plants is intended for seed production. The seeds of these plants can be used to make hemp oil, which can then be used in hundreds of different products. 

Finally, there are plants that are grown specifically for medicinal and recreational purposes. These are the plants that contain the most THC and CBD and have psychoactive effects. The most popular sativa strains in the industry are Lemon Sour Diesel, Super Lemon Haze, Durban Poison, Acapulco Gold and Panama Red. 

Positive Effects of Sativas

Cannabis sativa often produces an uplifting and stimulating experience. Many affirmations increase happiness and general mood. Stronger sativas are known to produce mild hallucinogenic or “cosmic” effects. The energizing effects of sativas generally make them more ideal for consumption during the day, as consuming them before bed can cause sleep problems.

Medicinal benefits of the Sativa cannabis strain

Cannabis, whether sativa, indica or hybrid, has a variety of important medical benefits and can treat many physical and mental ailments. Sativas in particular are very helpful in treating symptoms of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other mental health issues. These strains are also ideal for relieving mild chronic pain, as well as mild pain and inflammation. Sativas are also effective in promoting concentration and motivation in people suffering from certain attention disorders. Additionally, nausea and loss of appetite are other common symptoms that marijuana can help with. Sativa-dominant hybrids are another good choice for those who want to enjoy the mood-enhancing effects of sativa while experiencing the high that comes with most indica strains.

Sativa vs Indica:

The difference between Indica and Sativa is quite large in terms of the effects on the user. Sativas tend to have a pain-relieving effect, while indicas have a more calming effect. Indica plants grow much shorter and bushier than sativas, while sativas tend to grow longer, making many sativa strains perform much better in warmer climates with longer summers. These strains also differ in their effects on the brain. Indicas increase levels of dopamine in the brain, a chemical responsible for reward, pleasure and some aspects of exercise. This is why Indica has such pronounced physical effects. 

On the other hand, sativa increases serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin helps regulate factors such as mood, appetite, anxiety, and more. This is why sativas are so effective in treating mood disorders like depression and anxiety. For many cannabis enthusiasts, choosing between sativa and indica strains is easier said than done. Fortunately, the development of hybrid strains means users no longer have to choose between them. 

Hybrid strains involve crossing an indica strain with a sativa strain to create a strain that offers the “best of both worlds.” Depending on the parent strains used, hybrids can produce indica or sativa dominant effects, but some hybrids manage to achieve the perfect balance. Some people choose a sativa-dominant hybrid over a pure sativa because it allows them to experience sativa effects in addition to the mild indica effects. This can help reduce the likelihood of negative side effects that can come with pure sativa.

How to Grow Sativa Marijuana Plants

As mentioned above, sativas tend to flower longer than indicas. Additionally, they are generally more difficult to grow, and this also applies to sativa-dominant hybrids. Therefore, before choosing a sativa strain, it is recommended to do your research and ensure that it can thrive in its growing environment.It is important to have growing space, lighting, nutrients, and any other equipment you may need. Sativas are extremely sensitive to temperature and nutrients, but it's worth it. Click here to learn more about how to grow a premium sativa from the comfort of your own home.

How to Use Sativa 

Smoking weed in a joint is by far the most common practice. Bongs, pipes, and vaporizers are also common methods. You can also consume sativas in the form of extracts or edibles. Cannabis edibles and concentrates require a few extra steps but are actually one way to get marijuana, but are recommended for experienced users.In fact, they are much stronger than unrefined flower and can contain up to 90% pure THC. For comparison, the average sativa strain contains between 20 and 30% THC. Different consumption methods can influence both the duration and intensity of the overall experience.

How do I store Sativa Weed

It is best to store marijuana in a sealed bag or glass jar and store it in a cool, dark place in your home. We recommend keeping it out of the reach of children or anyone else who might try to steal caches. It's also important to store marijuana in a place with the right temperature and humidity. This helps prevent the growth of mold and bacteria, as well as rot, which can destroy your precious flowers. If you store multiple varieties, you will need to separate them to prevent the flavors from mixing. Storing your marijuana properly will preserve the original aroma, taste and effects of your strain.

Side Effects of Sativas

Fortunately, cannabis is a relatively safe substance to consume. Toxicity is very low and rarely requires medical attention. However, that doesn't mean there aren't many side effects that you should be aware of before consuming it. The main culprits are dry mouth and dry/red eyes. Drink plenty of fluids and everything will be fine.If you're new, start slowly as some people have reported dizzy spells, paranoia, and nausea. Remember that these effects do not last long and are sometimes so mild that they go unnoticed because you are having so much fun. However, keep in mind that long-term use of cannabis can, in rare cases, cause side effects in certain situations. Sativas are more likely to cause anxiety and paranoia than other strains. However, this can be easily avoided by using a sativa-dominant

hybrid with mild indica effects.
