Traditionally, sativas are known to provide a more stimulating and stimulating high. You'll often hear them described as “cerebral,” meaning you'll experience more of a mental or mental high than a body high.
Sativaplants are usually rich in THC. That's why Sativa is known for its high in the head.
It usually doesn't produce a strong sedative sensation like indica strains of cannabis do. The general perception is that Sativa strains primarily produce a cerebral high, whereas Indica strains provide primarily a body high. The literal difference between the two is in terms of classification: Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica are two of the subspecies of the genus Cannabis. Indica strains are considered to be more likely to produce a mild cannabis experience.
They are associated with feelings of deep physical and mental relaxation, and some people refer to these effects as a “body high.” Cannabis sativa plants share some of the same characteristics, both physical and in the effects of their flowers. Many people consider this pure and energizing sativa to be an option to get creative juices flowing. But again, the effects that these terpenes can provide, while consistent with the assumptions of what an indica or a sativa does, that effect is no guarantee of one or the other. All of this means that a high-THC sativa, for example, might seem like a stimulating antidepressant for a long-time cannabis user with a high tolerance to THC.
Consider what you expect to experience before choosing a consumption method because some, such as topical sativas, provide a less intense experience for most people. Cannabis sativa is native to warmer climates closer to the equator in areas such as East Asia, while Cannabis indica is more native to areas with colder climates. While Sativa is more associated with focus and productivity, Indica strains are known to produce the opposite effect. Medical marijuana patients are said to prefer sativas when they have been struggling with mental clarity, lack of energy, or an inability to concentrate while consuming other strains.
Most modern cannabis plants have a long lineage, descended from so many different strains that are not purely indica or purely sativa. Sativa or Sativa dominant strains are rich in THC, which is the cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive properties of marijuana. Topical cannabis sativa product types include creams, ointments, and patches that are applied to the surface of the skin. Oddly enough, indica strains tend to have a lighter THC concentration than sativas, even though they produce a more “high” sensation.
The most common effect has already been described, but it's important to note that Sativa strains can also help with depression or anxiety. Sativas dominate THC, which not only causes alertness and euphoria, but also relieves chronic pain, but also increases energy.
