Cannabis sativa originates from the warmer parts of the world. It has first been found in Southeast Asia and Central and South America. As a result, Sativa tends to develop better in warmer weather.
Throughout the history, sativa has been used the most for its sturdy fibre, nutritious seeds and oil. Sativa strains have a distinct terpene profile, that can come off a little bit pungent. The aroma of those terpenes is fruity, citrus, sweet and earthy, sometimes it can also be piney or peppery.
The plant on itself is usually taller and narrower, but the outside looks do not in any way impact the potency of buds – they are very rich in THC and CBD. Sativa plants usually have narrower leaves than Indica, and they are less bushy.
Sativa strains usually contain less percentage of CBD, and higher doses of THC. It provides a stimulating “mind high“, meaning you will not feel as sleepy and tired as you would using indica. The feeling is usually more energizing, inspiring and euphoric, reducing anxiety. The “mind high“ can promote creativeness, socialization and productivity.
Because of those effects, sativa is suitable for daytime and night-time use, because it does not stop you from performing almost any kind of activity. Of course, this depends from one person to another.
On the contrary some strains of sativa may cause anxiety or paranoia in people that have had previous issues with those conditions. For medical uses, sativa is often used to combat depression, eating disorders and many other conditions, but it is not recommended to be used on patients with anxiety and insomnia.
Sativa and Indica plants differ not only in their appearance, but also in the overall effects. While sativa, as mentioned above, is usually tall and narrow, indica plants are shorter, bushier, the leaves are wider, and over all – it looks “chunkier“.
The main difference is probably their medical and overall effect on people. While sativa in more uplifting and provides “mind high“, indica is better known for its “body high“. The “body high“ is usually felt in the decrease of energy, making a person sleepier. Medically, indica is usually used for pain and inflammation, making it the best choice (from the two) for patients with cancer, arthritis and similar conditions. Indica is also a great appetite stimulator.
Another difference results from the different types of terpenes each sort produces. Indica strains tend to have musty, earthy and skunky aromas, when on the other hand sativas tend to have sweet, spicy and fruity aromas.
If you have found yourself reading through the article and thought to yourself “This must be nice“, “I want to try that“ or “those are the exact effects from Cannabis that I’m looking for“, you probably will not regret picking sativa. But it is still recommended to be cautious if have struggled with anxiety or insomnia. When picking a strain also be cautious of THC content, depending on how well you tolerate it.
In conclusion, sativa strains are a better choice for daytime users. They give uplifting and euphoric high, making you more creative and productive. In comparison to indica, sativa is a taller and narrower plant, that has more fruity aromas.
