What Is Sativa?

One of the first things budding cannabis enthusiasts will notice is that all weed is essentially divided into two distinct groups. These groups are Indica and Sativa. Both are members of the same species of plant, though the scientific name applicable to all of them, confusingly, is Cannabis Sativa L (the “L” stands for Carl Linnaeus, the Swedish botanist who was responsible for giving cannabis the name Sativa).

While current cannabis science suggests that the difference between cannabis strains is no longer as simple as Indica vs Sativa, most people still identify their cannabis using these terms. Sativa strains, including the Haze family of strains, are generally thought to be more stimulating and accomplishment-oriented than Indica. These tall, gangly equatorial strains can reach a height of 25 feet, and were developed in hot climates including Thailand, southern Africa, Colombia, and Mexico. The sativa leaf is typically thin and resembles the iconic pot leaf we’ve all come to know. These plants are compatible with completing tasks, socializing, and creative pursuits such as making visual art, writing, or playing music.

Sativa Effects

The uplifting Sativa high is more cerebral than the Indica high, which is described as more of a body high. Its stimulation is perfect for anyone who prefers to consume cannabis during the day.

But, for some people, the soaring mental stimulation and racing thoughts associated with Sativa weed can actually increase anxiety. That’s why people who are prone to anxiety attacks often choose Indica strains instead.

Some of the pulse-pounding Sativas like Jack Herer, Trainwreck and Green Crack are beloved by their fans for those mental fireworks, while avoided by others because they find them a little too stimulating.

Sativa Benefits

The mental zing associated with Sativa weed makes it ideal for creative pursuits. Those euphoric, racing thoughts enjoyed by many with the Sativa high mean that it can foster new ideas and creations.

It can also increase focus. These strains can be very helpful in fighting depression, fatigue, and mood disorders. There’s absolutely nothing like a jolt of cannabinoid-induced mental energy to get you out of the doldrums.

Sativa weed is also thought to be useful in treating Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) because of its ability to increase mental focus. While some folks may over-simplify by saying that Indica equals medical marijuana, and Sativa equals recreational marijuana, that’s not necessarily the case. Both strains have different reported benefits, although it’s important to note that more research needs to be conducted.
