Mexican Sativa Feminised is a sativa-dominant cannabis strain for outdoor cultivation in cooler climate regions. It is an elegant, tall plant which grows vigorously producing elongated buds on long branches. Yields are good.
Mexican sativa was bred from a Mexican strain from the Oaxaca region. This was crossed with Durban and a Hash Plant from Pakistan. The result was then crossed back to the Oaxacan, stabilising it, before making it a feminised strain. Three pheno-types are produced; two are typically sativa, tall plants with long. slender buds. The third is an indica expression with a Christmas tree structure and fatter buds and is far less common than the other two. This strain takes very well to training, LST and super-cropping irrespective of the environment in which they are grown; indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse.
This 70% sativa strain can quadruple in size during the stretch period following the commencement of flowering and plants can reach a height of in excess of 200 cm. For this reason it is recommended to give plants a short vegetative period before switching to 12/12 indoors. Pinching out the tops will also result in a plant with a bushier structure. Indoors flowering will take up to 10 weeks with outdoor harvests being ready at the end of October or in early November.
The perfume and flavour of Mexican Sativa is quite restrained during flowering but intensifies when the buds are dried and cured. Licorice and citrus overlay earthy, woody, spicy flavours. The effect is potent and energising with feelings of euphoria and giggling often reported by smokers. The Hash Plant genetics contribute a more relaxing side too, providing a gently body-stone which is quite relaxing. Physical activities can be enjoyed as there is little of the traditional "heavy" feeling with this strain of cannabis. It is an all-round satisfying high that is long-lasting and durable.

About Sensi Seeds
There is no other seed bank in the world that has been coveted with more awards than Sensi Seeds. From the Highlife Cup to the Cannabis Cup, Sensi have achieved unrivalled legendary status in the seed bank world.
In the early 1970’s, the founder of Sensi, Ben, opened a clothes shop in the Dutch city of Rotterdam where he sold homemade clothing. A few years earlier, at the age of seventeen, he smoked his first joint. But it wasn’t until he began making regular trips to Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan to purchase textiles that he became aware of the plant’s versatility. He learned about hemp fibre’s suitability as, among other things, a textile and was given cannabis and cannabis seeds by local farmers. Ben discovered that the cannabis plant had so much to offer in spite of it being prohibited and vilified in all corners of the world.
It became one of his passions to collect cannabis seeds from Central and South East Asia and the Asian subcontinent. Back home in the Netherlands, he started to cultivate these seeds in order to learn more about the growth process of this very special plant.
At the start of the 1980’s, the first examples of innovative, stabilised hybrids, such as Haze and Skunk, arrived in Europe from the United States. Ben was one of a mere three Dutch cultivators who were granted access to these hybrids, which are considered an important blueprint for the development of European hybrids.
At the end of the seventies, Ben found out that cannabis seeds did not fall under the cannabis prohibition; it was only the plant that was prohibited and not the seeds. As it was not illegal to sell seeds, Ben reasoned that the production process should not be illegal either. He started his seed company after a lawyer confirmed this insight and in 1985 the Sensi Seed Club, also known as the Sensi Connoisseurs’ Club, came into being. Ben took over a company called the Seed Bank in 1991 and the gene libraries were merged to create the Sensi Seed Bank as we know it today.
Sensi Seeds search for cannabis genetics has never ceased in the last 30 years. Their dedication towards genetic preservation has also never diminished. To this day, Sensi are true to their roots and are now, more than ever, aware that the future of cannabis genetic research lies in its past, in the genetics that started it all.
Sensi genetics offer not only the high yield and range of effects people search for, they actually represent a part of Cannabis’ history.
With a host of award winning strains, it would be unwise to overlook Sensi Seeds, available to buy at Seedsman now.
