Classified by Carl Linnaeus in 1753, cannabis sativa varieties have been cultivated for centuries for their hemp fibre, medicinal properties and psychoactivity, among other benefits. Sativa varieties are better suited for warmer climates and thrive outdoors in legal markets, originating from tropical countries in Central and South America and Southeast Asia, including Thailand, India, Mexico, and Colombia. Sativa plants are better suited for warmer climates and thrive if grown outdoors in legal markets.
Moreover, the sativa plant’s structure is constructed to 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.
To ensure a high yield, Sativa requires a slightly longer time to grow, taking between ten to sixteen weeks to mature.
The flowers of the plant, and to a much lesser extent, the leaves and stems, contain the psychoactive chemical compound THC and other cannabinoids consumed by users for recreational and medicinal purposes.
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. 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 favourite among medical users.
Sativa has also been used in medical practices as a therapeutic alternative for mental illnesses. 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.
