Traits of a typical sativa cannabis plant:

  • Longer flowering time
  • Low yields
  • Effects: Uplifting, creative, cerebral
  • Symptom Relief: Depression, ADD/ADHD, fatigue, mood disorders
  • Morphology: Tall, lanky, thin leaves

Sativa genetics come from near the equator, where the summers are long and the winters are mild. Sativas grow long, lanky, and take their time to finish. Generally, they are not a first pick for gardeners as their height is difficult indoors while their lower yields make for a reduced profit. However, if you are more interested growing as a connoisseur you might take great pleasure from exploring the sativa strains and the varying effects.
