So what are you looking for?
A nice quiet high, relaxing with a punch of euphoria, or to get you up, motivated and creative?
If the second you need to look at Sativa strains, or hybrids where the Sativa is dominant.
The Stimulating strain of Cannabis tend to be longer plants, with leaves that are long and slim.
Sativa thrives in warmer climates and can usually handle flowering in humid areas a lot better than Indica.
By looking at the space between nodes and the slim leaves you will see why this is the case. Lots of air can pass trough the plant, reducing the chances of mould.
As Sativa plants tend to the tall side they are a favorite to grow outside or in a greenhouse where you have lots of height. Sativa plants can be grown indoor with LST or HST methods to keep their height to a minimum.
Some Iconic Sativa strains:
The Espresso Strain: Durban Poison
The Durban Poison strain is a pure sativa, discovered by an American weed activist who brought it to America in the 1970s. This landrace strain hits you hard, and it’s energetic, uplifting high can help you get through a grueling day. Users claim it is akin to consuming several espresso shots!
The Comical Strain: Hawaiian Snow
Hawaiian Snow contains 80-90% sativa with a small portion of indica. The effects on offer range from uplifting and cerebral to incredibly energizing! This strain is prescribed regularly to those who suffer from anxiety and depression and is renowned for its ability to elevate moods. It is a cross of Hawaiian Haze, Neville’s Haze, and Pure Haze.
The Smooth Strain: Amnesia Haze
Newbies, approach with caution! Amnesia Haze is an incredibly strong strain. It is a sativa-dominant hybrid (up to 80%), and its THC content can hit 24%, though there is up to 1% CBD depending on the cut. It is an eclectic mix of strains, and is a cross of a Hawaiian, Jamaican, Thai, and Cambodian sativa, Haze, a South Asian indica, and Afghani!
The Hard Hitter Strain: Moby Dick
Explicitly designed to provide a robust medicinal benefit, Moby Dick scores high on the THC front with levels up to 27%. This makes for one hell of a high that will leave users feeling spaced out and euphoric at the same time! It is a cross of Haze and White Widow.
At 75% sativa, Moby Dick promises a focused and creative high. However, the high levels of THC could promote a level of laziness, an unusual trait in sativa-dominant strains. It delivers a pleasant body numbing sensation with a strong, and sometimes trippy, vibe.
The Truck: Sour Diesel
Sour Diesel is a sativa-dominant variety that offers long-lasting pain relief and energizing cerebral effects. Also known as Sour D, this fast-acting strain has a distinct, pungent aroma of diesel fuel and an earthy flavor.
