There are varieties of marijuana that are effective in treating certain illness and disorder, but not all. Looking for the ideal strain is crucial since it guarantees that the patients will receive the effects they are looking for.
There are more than 1,000 different strains of marijuana that have been bred all over the world. With this staggering variety of strains, consumers need to understand what each one can do to their body. On top of that, they also need to know the differences between these types to determine the ideal strain for them.
When you look at its appearance, cannabis sativa has narrow leaves and they tend to grow taller, approximately 9 to 18 feet high. They came from places with warm climates such as Central America, Mexico, and Southeast Asia. They grow healthier in an outdoor garden setting since they like to be pampered with an adequate amount of heat.
On another note, balanced hybrids contain 50% indica and 50% sativa. This one is well-loved by consumers because of its perfectly balanced effect that offers relief to the mind and body. Some of the most popular balanced hybrid strains are Super Silver Haze and White Widow.
Cannabis sativa is notorious for its sedating effects that include energetic, uplifting, and cerebral high, which is perfect for those who want to unlock brilliant ideas for creative projects. These strains will also help you pause and give you a moment to assess your perception. The mind-blowing and creative benefits of cannabis sativa make it a popular strain among artists, philosophers, and musicians. Aside from this, here are other reasons why you should opt for sativa strains:
There are two kinds of sativa hybrids: sativa-dominant hybrids and balanced hybrids. Sativa-dominant hybrids offer cerebral high combined with soothing effects to the body. They are usually helpful in decreasing pain, inflammation, and stress. For those who are going through physical and mental stress, these strains work like magic. One of the most sought after sativa-dominant hybrid includes Purple Trainwreck and Headband.
Chronic Ryder Auto is popular for producing hearty yields of thick buds. The seeds can grow in as short as 65 days.
Sativa and indica are the most common variety of marijuana that is always compared with each other. Comparing sativa and indica might be a little complicated because it all comes down to the personal choice of the consumer. But both strains can be utilized for recreational and medical purpose.
Green-O-Matic Auto can fully grow in just 55-60 days before its germination. This means that in such a short time, you can immediately enjoy your harvest. It is made up of 10% sativa, 80% indica, and 10% ruderalis. It is an auto-flowering hybrid that is bred from White Dwarf, Moroccan, Lowryder, and other ruderal genetics. Green-O-Matic Auto is short in appearance, but, despite its limited height, it can produce as much as 800 g/m2 in an ideal growing environment. It is easy to cultivate with a THC content of 15%. You can expect fine, sweet, and smokey flavor from this hybrid.

Wherever you plant this beauty you’re guaranteed a pine-tree shaped plant. In indoor grows you can plant around 9 plants per square meter and you’ll need to flower them around 10-15 days after the growth begins or they’ll get much too tall. They feed quite nicely, and you can give it a nice full fertilizer chart without worrying about overdoing it right from the get go. It doesn’t need many anti-fungi products as it generally isn’t likely to get fungi in the first place, and you’ll need minimal insecticide before flowering begins. At the end of the flowering period you’ll have a plant with some extremely eye-catching colors that give it a special touch. The flavor is fresh and captivating, and the effect will no doubt induce fits of laughter in those that smoke it. This is a strain that everyone needs to try at least once.
This was the first strain that I ever smoked and I remember it like it was yesterday. It can grow 3m tall over just one season and can easily produce over 1kg if planted in the ground with plenty of organic nutrients. This plant likes to grow without too much fuss, and not a lot of fertilizer; it prefers slow releasing mixes in the substrate rather than a liquid concoction. The best way to grow this plant is in some decent sunlight. Find your preferred spot and dig a hole, in which you’ll put 50L of light substrate and 3kg of worm hummus. When summer comes around (here in Spain, around the 21 st of June) then you’ll need to give the plant a dose of bat guan around the trunk. Dig a sort of moat around the trunk, at about 20cm, and scoop about 15 spoonfuls of bat guano into it.
After a month, repeat the dose and then your plant is set for the flowering period. You could also give your plant some Bio Bloom by BioBizz during the flowering period for that extra touch on your plants’ buds. This way, you’ll get a completely natural yield of amazingly tasty buds that give an energizing and happy high. The buds it grows are massive; you’ll hardly be able to see the trunk at all, and the branches are full of buds with teeny tiny drops of resin all over them; that makes this strain perfect for hash extractions of the utmost quality. It should be ready around mid-October and it’s great at dealing with unfortunate climates although it might suffer a bit in as far as yield; it prefers sunnier and warmer climates over cold and rainy ones.
This is the perfect indoor Sativa weed. This strain flowers in just 10 weeks indoors and can easily reward growers with 500g per square meter. It’s a cross of different sativas that make up and extremely potent strain with a happy, energizing high with some nice fresh flavors. It’s amazing indoors, but it will also put up with almost any climate; from mid-summer sun to northern, rainy climates, this sativa weed strain is practically immune to oidium and botrytis.
It’s known to take much longer to grow, which is due to its incredibly long flowering period which is over 10 weeks, going over 15 weeks in some cases. This long flowering period is due to the fact sativas originally grew somewhere that had pretty regular amounts of sun all year and the time the sun is in the sky hardly varies, so flower growth is slow and progressive. This is why these strains aren’t usually grown indoors and we don’t recommend growing them indoors. In order to grow a sativa plant indoors is by setting it to flower with a 12/12h light period almost instantly so that you have a chance to control its growth a bit.
When smoked the effect is much more relaxing than many other sativas, allowing you to relax your brain while still feeling active. It’s perfect for people that are stressed at work and need to get it off of their mind. Power Plant helps you to forget about stressful things and relaxes both body and mind, allowing you the mental energy to do more fun, relaxing activities. When planted outdoors it should be ready towards the end of September, which is pretty decent for a Sativa strain, although indoors it will take just 8 weeks to flower. It puts up quite well with decent amounts of fertilizers, and by using a mineral range of fertilizers you can get the absolute most out of the buds.
This strain was recommended to me by my cousin, who went to Amsterdam and told me it was the best strain he’d ever tried. I fell in love with this strain due to how fast it flowers and its amazing buds. This plant has a strange color that not many other plants have; it has an almost radioactive green color to it. The buds are hard like rocks and have an exquisite aroma that’s hard to describe; you’ll just have to try it yourself. It grows quite nicely indoors, even better than outdoors due to how dense and heavy the buds are; they don’t deal too well with humidity.
They grow quite vigorously, growing up easily and growing over three meters tall when planted right outdoors. Indoors if you don’t tame them they may end up growing much too large to sustain. They have wide internodes and plenty of branches, allowing them to absorb light almost all around and given them a nice airy foliage. Their trunks and branches aren’t as sturdy as indica strains; they’re slightly elastic, which is why it’s necessary to use tutors in order to prevent breaking.
Sativa weed has always been known for their intense, potent, mental and sometimes psychotropic effects. It’s one of the most consumed cannabis for recreational smoking. It also produces incredibly mentally stimulating, physically active, creative, energetic, anti-depressant effects too. It can reach a point where it produces anxiety, which is due to its incredibly high THC content and low CBD content. We do not recommend using this type of cannabis for relaxing or sleeping.
In this article we deal with some of the best sativa weed strains that we've ever tried; the fastest, best tasting Sativa strains.
