A Brief History of Sativa
Classified by Carl Linnaeus in 1753, Cannabis sativa varieties have been cultivated for centuries for their hemp fiber, medicinal properties and psychoactivity, among other benefits. Originating from tropical countries in Central and South America and South East Asia, including Thailand, India, Mexico, and Colombia, sativa varieties are better suited for warmer climates and thrive if grown outdoors in legal markets.
Moreover, the plant’s structure is constructed so that it can reach heights up to twenty feet and thrives in humid atmospheres and tropical climates. The leaves and flowers will also look different, with sativa strains featuring long, thin foliage and long, cylindrical buds compared to stocky, dense indica varieties.
Sativa requires a slightly longer time to grow, taking between ten to sixteen weeks to mature, to ensure a high yield.
The flowers of the plant, and to a much lesser extent the leaves and stems, contain the psychoactive chemical compound THC, as well as other cannabinoids consumed by users for recreational and medicinal purposes.
Sativa Effects and Medicinal Benefits
The therapeutic effects of the sativa plant have been used for many millennia. The mythical founder of Chinese herbal medicine (Shen-Nung) mentions hemp in 2737 B.C., and in the 19th century, cannabis was an essential component of apothecaries for many uses. Particularly when treating pain in the joints and muscles, migraines, and cramp-like pains, Cannabis sativa has long been utilized for its therapeutic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Today, research has found the effects of CBD, found in both sativas and indicas, to be wide-ranging, having sedative, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, anti-arthritic, anti-nausea, and anti-convulsive properties, thus making CBD-rich sativa varieties a favorite among medical users.
Sativa has also been used in medical practices as a therapeutic alternative for people with mental illnesses since it tends to produce various primary effects leading it to be sought out by many users. These effects include sativa being uplifting, mood elevating, and good for creativity. The characteristic cerebral high can provide an overall energetic effect that stimulates conversation and sociability. As a result, sativa tends to be consumed during the day while its counterpart, indica, is preferred at night.
