Commonly known as the ‘daytime’ smoke, the effect of cannabis sativa is often described as a cerebral, or “head” high. Sativa strains induce feelings alertness, creativity, focus, and increased energy, which can help some people feel inspired, productive, and motivated.
Unfortunately, these same characteristics can induce racing thoughts and feelings of paranoia in certain consumers (especially new consumers who get a bit overzealous starting out). This may be able to be mitigated with CBD, so adding a bit of raw, organic hemp flower to your bowl or joint might help ease anxiety and paranoia associated with cannabis use.
Because of the euphoria and energy boost it provides, cannabis sativa may aid in managing symptoms of depression. That said, it’s not a one-size-fits-all, so talk to your care provider to learn more about using cannabis to treat depression.
Sativas get your mind moving and are categorized as ‘creative weed.’ Ask for:
Sour Diesel, Green Crack, Jack Herer, Durban Poison, Super Silver Haze, Super Lemon Haze, Purple Haze, Island Sweet Skunk, Ghost Train Haze, Acapulco Gold, East Coast Sour Diesel, Strawberry Cough.
Choosing between indica and sativa varieties of cannabis (and the associated THC and other cannabinoid content) is dependent on the consumer’s symptoms and desired effects.
Those seeking an upbeat, focused, and creative experience, should select a sativa dominant strain. Alternatively, those looking for relaxing, appetite inducing, and sedative effects should choose an indica dominant strain.
