Cannabis sativa is a tall plant with thin, narrow leaves, while indicas generally grow short and bushier. Historically it thrives in warmer climates and sub-tropical environments. Some popular cannabis sativa strains in Canada include Super Silver Haze, Blue Dream, Sour Diesel, and Harlequin.
Sativa’s promise is a mood uplifting and euphoric high. Sativa strains boost creativity and create an energizing effect because of the high THC levels and low CBD levels. Users report that they have better visual experiences and tend to laugh more with sativa-dominant strains. Because of the lighter, more energetic effects, people tend to turn towards sativa strains for daytime use
