What are Sativa Strains? | NUG
One of the first things one learns when getting into the wonderful world of Cannabis are the three types of strains: Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. The next thing they might want to learn would not only be how they differ from each other, but how does each respective strain make you feel when smoked? Speaking for myself, the first type of strain that made me understand how much I enjoyed smoking weed was the Sativa strain. I was in my early 20’s as a full time DJ/Producer making music from am to pm, and needed something that helped me think outside the box. Locking myself in a studio trying to crank out music definitely sucked the enjoyment out of creating, but I found that smoking on Sativa brought new life into my creative process. After adjusting to feeling comfortable being high, it was like I got to put on a new pair of ears to listen with. One particular Sativa strain helped me gain a new perspective in the studio and provides an uplifting, euphoric feeling I still enjoy to this day. However, enough about me, I’m here to help you understand more about Sativa strains and how they affect you.
Each of the three Cannabis strains, Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid have been genetically bred over centuries to promote a specific kind of high. The Sativa strain is known to boost energy and produce a cerebral high that enhances creativity and focus. Because of these specific effects, Sativas have been generally labeled as a “daytime” strain as their effects promote activities more suitable during the AM. However, that isn’t always the case since there are many examples of why you’d want to smoke Sativa at night. A Sativa high is also known to promote sociability – perfect for a night out with friends. Want to skip the hangover of alcohol? Try smoking some Premium Jack before a concert and experience the music on another level.
The discussion between Indica vs Sativa is a popular one, but it ultimately comes down to the differences between each plant and the effects each has when smoked. Sativa plants differ from their Indica counterparts by their thinner leaves and taller height. The Indica plant is normally denser and compact in stature. Normally around 12 feet high, Sativa plants also carry a lighter color of green than Indica plants. From their psychoactive effects to their physical appearance, the differences between Indica and Sativa couldn’t be more apparent. Sativa plants are also known to have a flowering time of up to 12 weeks (longer than Indica plants) and are found in hotter climates around the globe. Sativa plants have origins from Central America, Africa, and Western Asia. But these days, you don’t have to travel far to discover popular Sativa strains.
