In my cannabis usage, I’ve always regarded Sativa as a little sketchy. As an over-eager person who can’t even keep his foot from tapping on the ground for most of the time, Sativa is frequently a stimulant strain that gives me even more energy than I already have, which might be rather overwhelming for me.
However, not all Sativas are made equal, and not all Sativas provide a significantly energizing high. There are Sativas that function as useful tools for relaxation, creativity, happiness, and attention. The last one is one that anxious and nervous individuals such as myself often struggle with.
However, the following is a list of cannabis strains to try if you’re looking for something to brighten your day rather than end it. A strain that can kill anxiety rather than boost it. Finally, a strain that may be used to help manage depression by increasing activity rather than putting you in bed with the blinds closed.
What’s the Difference Between Indica and Sativa Cannabis?
Although the terms “indica” and “sativa” may appear to be scientific botanical jargon, they are not technically precise, and have essentially become labels for strain appearances and effects.
The most visible differences between indicas and sativas are their height, bushiness, and leaf width. Indica plants are short, bushy, and have broad leaves, whereas sativa plants are long, thin-leafed strains with a cerebral energy high (the notorious couch lock effect). While this is true to some extent, recent research has shown that it isn’t always as easy.
While these distinctions between indica and sativa are generally acknowledged in the marijuana growing community, they may not apply to every strain.
High THC Sativa Strains
The Sativa head high is well-known, and it has creative and energizing qualities that help you concentrate. We’ve been asked a lot about “the most powerful Sativa strains.” There’s no doubting that Sativa marijuana is strong; after all, it contains a lot of THC. However, there are a few things to think about before choosing this strain over an Indica.
The high-cannabinoid strain of cannabis is known for producing a relaxing euphoric effect. Medical users have utilized it to treat stress, anxiety, and sadness. Because of the boost in creativity and attention, some people consume it just before getting up for the day’s activities.
You’ll love the low amounts of CBD and a high concentration of THC if you select one of the more powerful Sativa strains. THC is the psychotropic component in cannabis that is commonly used to distinguish between various types of marijuana. Most effective Sativa strains have a THC concentration greater than 20%, without a doubt.
Sativa strains are better at keeping you awake and active all day long than most Indica strains associated with couchlock and a perplexed mind state. You can take a suitable dosage during the day while remaining alert and performing your daily tasks.
Green Crack Punch
The offspring of two wildly popular strains is the Purple Punch, a powerful indica-leaning strain, and Green Crack, a sativa-dominant cannabis variety. This results in an excellent high that’s energetic, uplifting, and creative at first before turning into a nice calmness. It’s also an excellent strain for muscular pains. Growers may produce up to 500g/m2 of flowers with around 20% THC under ideal circumstances when cultivated indoors.
The Haze Berry is a classic marijuana strain that mixes the flavor of Blueberry with the cerebral high of Haze. The cured buds have a sweet taste to them, and the energizing high is great for people who want to accomplish things during the day. Haze berry has excellent yields and grows nicely in both indoor and outdoor gardens due on its sativa growing traits.
Shining Silver Haze
Shropshire Queen is one of the most coveted sativa strains, and our Shining Silver Haze delivers high-quality genetics that have been stabilized for years. Shining Silver Haze is well suited to indoor or outdoor cannabis gardens because it has a Skunk lineage that dates back to Northern Lights and Haze. Outside, the plant thrives in full light, and indoor growers can expect yields of up to 450g/m2. Smokers who have tried Shropshire Queen enjoy the flavor and powerful buzz.
Mother Gorilla is the newest hybrid in our lineup. Mother Gorilla is a 70/30 sativa-indica mix from GG #4 and Reina Madre. The plant has a strong THC concentration of 25 percent, making Mother Gorilla an attractive option for seasoned smokers. Mother Gorilla is also an excellent choice for growers looking for a fast-maturing cannabis plant, since she blooms in just 8 weeks—and looks good while doing it!
Amnesia Mac Ganja (AMG)
The White Widow is a four-time cup winner that makes smokers pleased and at ease. It’s a strong combination of the notorious Amnesia and Ganja Mac Haze, making it ideal for anybody looking for a nice pick-me-up without the heaviness. AMG has around 22 percent THC and has an earthy spicy flavor profile to it. It’s one of the most popular strains in Dutch coffeeshops, and if you try it, you’ll understand why.
Mimosa is a morning energizer that stimulates your central nervous system and helps you focus on your objectives for the day. These bright, big blooms are packed with 22 percent THC and a fragrance that hits the tongue with citrus and earthy undertones. This bud is great when paired with a strong cup of coffee in the morning to get a boost of motivation. Despite her sativa lineage, she maintains a modest size throughout cultivation. Indoor plants reach heights of 80cm and produce approximately 400g/m2, while outdoor plants develop up to 100cm tall and output 550g/plant.
These blooms are absolutely gorgeous. They’re tall, thick, covered with trichomes, and have tones of dark green and purple. It almost feels bad to crush them, but your remorse will go away as soon as you blaze them. Wedding Crasher provides a powerful high that boosts attention and creativity. These buds may be used anytime you need a boost in energy or enthusiasm. Do you want to grow her indoors? Expect a tremendous yield of 450–500g/m2 if you do so.
