Origin:Cannabis sativa is found primarily in hot, dry climates with long sunny days. These include Africa, Central America, Southeast Asia, and portions of Western Asia.
Plant description: Sativa plants are tall and thin with finger-like leaves. They can grow taller than 12 feet, and they take longer to mature than some other types of cannabis.
Typical CBD to THC ratio: Sativa often has lower doses of CBD and higher doses of THC.
Commonly associated effects of use: Sativa often produces a “mind high,” or an energizing, anxiety-reducing effect. If you use sativa-dominant strains, you may feel productive and creative, not relaxed and lethargic.
Daytime or nighttime use: Because of its stimulating impact, you can use sativa in the daytime.
Popular strains: Three popular sativa strains are Acapulco Gold, Panama Red, and Durban Poison.
