Sativa seeds produce cannabis with a high THC content. They contain less CBD in contrast to Indica cannabis strains. But not only does the genetics affect the THC and CBD content, it also affects the external characteristics. This is because the plants grow quite tall (2.5 to 6 feet tall) and the leaves are narrower and lighter compared to other cannabis strains. The buds are fluffy and spiky. Because of their size, they are ideal outdoor plants that provide high yields.
Sativa seeds are suitable for:
Because of its longer flowering time, you can only harvest in autumn. And because sativa’s are usually grown outdoors, there is an increased risk of them being affected by molds during this wet period. A successful harvest therefore requires extra care and attention. Experience in growing sativa is therefore a plus.

Sativa seeds originated in two places of the world: in the humid areas of Southeast Asia (Thailand and Indonesia) and South America (Colombia, Peru and Mexico). The humid climate of these areas has made the Sativa a strong strain with increased resistance to mold.

Like two peas in a pod, these strains from the same genus have always been at a loggerhead. Many have questioned the variations in physical structure, effects and benefits of both plants. Although they share the same genetic source, the Sativa strain and the Indica are as different as two non-identical twins. Below are some of the ways both plants differ from each other:
Origin of Sativa Seeds
The Cannabis Sativa seed is first of the origin seeds and the master landrace of the marijuana plant. The Sativa buds are renowned in the cannabis community for its subtle high. The Sativa exists alongside the Indica and the lesser known sibling the ruderalis .
The true origins of the plant have not been established. Depending on whom you are speaking with, you are likely to hear it’s from China, the Middle East or even Eastern Europe. Anyway, irrespective of its distinct origin, the most important concern is that it has proven to be a helpful medicinal plant with enormously rich derivatives that have very potent medicinal and therapeutic effects.

Classified by Carl Linnaeus in the year 1753, Cannabis Sativa varieties have been cultivated for centuries for its hemp fibre and for its psychoactive resins, among the other benefits which the plant has been known to offer, for those who consume it. Originating from equatorial countries in Central America and South East Asia, including the likes of Thailand, India, Mexico and Colombia, Sativa varieties are better suited for warmer climates and hence thrive if grown in the outdoors.
The therapeutic effects of 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 important component of apothecaries for many uses. Particularly when it comes to the treatment of pain in the joints and muscles, migraines and cramp like pains, Cannabis Sativa has been utilised for its therapeutic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Primary Effects and Medicinal Benefits
Furthermore, Sativa varieties typically produce high levels of Cannabidiol (CBD) rather than the psychoactive and intoxicating Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Though cannabinoids form the major component of Sativa, other constituents include proteins, enzymes, simple acids, fatty acids, simple esters, lactones, simple ketones, non-cannabinoid phenols, pigments, flavonoids, and vitamins. The flowers of the plant, though to a lesser extent the leaves, stems, and seeds as well, contain the psychoactive chemical compound, cannabinoid, which is consumed by users for recreational and medicinal purposes. One such Sativa strain is the Amnesia Haze, one of the top yielding Cannabis plants, which has an immediate and cerebral high with psychedelic overtones; unlike other Sativa plants, it works great for both indoor and outdoor growers.
Moreover, the plant’s structure is constructed in such a way whereby 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 in comparison to stocky, dense Indica varieties. Sativa requires a slightly longer time to grow, taking between ten to sixteen weeks to mature and hence ensuring a higher yield.
In the present day even preliminary research has found the effects of CBD, found in Sativa, to be wide-ranging, having sedative, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, anti-arthritic, anti-nausea, and anti-convulsive properties, thus making CBD-rich Sativa seeds the top choice to incur such benefits.
