Sativa is a type of marijuana strain that is categorized by the effects it has on a user as well as the characteristics of the plant itself. Sativa strain's effects are stimulating and help with relief from depression, migraines, pain, and nausea. In most cases, sativa strains will have a higher level of THC content than indicas. The result of this strain is a psychoactive and energetic mid-high. Many patients prefer to medicate with this type of cannabis during the day to avoid drowsiness. However, if used at nighttime, it can interfere with sleep and may keep the user awake.
The sativa cannabis plants are characterized by their tall structure and long, thin leaves. They take slightly longer to mature in comparison to indica strains and produce higher levels of THC, but lower levels of CBD.
