What are Sativa Weed Strains?

Sativa weed strains are a subcategory of the cannabis family (indica and hybrid strains being the other two subcategories). These plants contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that induces the effects normally associated with marijuana use. These plants are characterized by being tall plants with thin leaves and long cone-shaped buds. In addition, cannabis Sativa plants are common in warmer climates that are closer to the equator and have longer summers. Sativa marijuana needs a longer timeframe to flower and this is where the longer summers come in handy.  Furthermore, Sativa cannabis strains often provide effects that include increases in happiness, energy, focus, and relaxation. This makes Sativa weed ideal for daytime use.  However, it is important to note that not all Sativa strains induce effects suitable for day use. In fact, some Sativa strains can induce effects that are similar to that of indica strains.  Whatever the case, there are millions of cannabis users in Canada that take marijuana for a wide range of reasons.  For a comparison of Sativa and Indica weed strains, you can visit our sativa vs indica guide.

Common Benefits of Using Sativa Weed

People take cannabis for a variety of reasons. Some take it to help with medical conditions, some take it for its therapeutic properties, and some just want to enhance the fun in whatever they are doing. Whatever the case, marijuana helps millions of people throughout the world. The biggest benefit of Sativa weed is that most of these strains induce increases in happiness and overall mood. Because of the uplifting and stimulating effects, Sativa strains are ideal for daytime and afternoon use. In addition, Sativa cannabis is generally better for social situations that require interaction than Indica strains.  However, it is important to note that THC can affect people differently and the effects can be different from person to person. What you will feel might be completely different than what someone else would (even if you are smoking the same joint). Below are some of the most common effects associated with sativa marijuana use:
Relaxation Happiness Uplifted-ness

Cannabis Dosage Chart:

The good thing about cannabis is that it is impossible to over-consume enough to cause serious problems. The worst that could happen is you take too much and feel a bit uncomfortable for a short period of time.  To prevent any negative effects due to overconsumption, an appropriate dosage level should be used.  Below you will find a cannabis dosage chart. This chart should only be used as a guideline as there are many other variables that can affect the effects felt by an individual.  For example, a 250 lb individual who smokes weed every day will be able to take more than a 100 lb person who rarely takes cannabis. Therefore, you should start off slow and work your way up if you are unsure.

Alternative Products

Cannabis products come in all shapes and sizes, from high THC cannabis concentrates, to powerful weed edibles, to CBD products with no THC at all. Cannabis concentrates are potent forms of THC and are not for the faint of heart. The same goes for marijuana edibles that are known to induce intense highs.  There are even magic mushroom products for those looking for an out of this world psychedelic experience. These products contain psilocybin, the main ingredient that causes hallucinatory effects. Here are some of the most popular alternatives to regular marijuana buds: Cannabis Concentrates are products with high levels of THC and minimal plant matter. Basically, the beneficial compounds are separated from the unwanted plant material, leaving a purer and more potent product. Some of the most common weed concentrates include hash, shatter, budder, THC oil, live resin, THC distillate, and weed vapes. Weed Edibles are any cannabis products that you can eat. Many cannabis edibles are actually everyday food items that are infused with THC. Some of the most popular marijuana edibles in Canada include THC gummies, THC chocolate, weed cookies, THC capsules, and THC tinctures. CBD Products are items that do not cause intoxication. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid that is found in cannabis. However, CBD does not attach to receptors in the brain and does not cause the intoxicating effects normally associated with THC use. Some of the most common cannabidiol products in Canada include CBD oil, CBD capsules, CBD edibles, CBD vapes, and CBD gummies. Magic Mushrooms products are those that contain the hallucinatory drug psilocybin. These products are perfect for those looking for a much more intense experience. Some of the most sought after shroom products include dried shrooms, shroom chocolate, shroom gummies, shroom capsules, and shroom tea.
