4 Sativa CBD Flower Strains To Buy In 2020

For people who have savored the many flavors and feelings of cannabis for years, it’s clear that sativa and indica are in completely different categories. While it’s unclear whether Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica were actually different species, to begin with, two widely different categories of cannabis exist that deliver widely different results.

When it's time to get up, go, and enjoy everything that daytime has to offer, there’s nothing better to reach for than some delicious, fruity cannabis buds. Even better, make getting fuzzy in the head optional—smoke the four Secret Nature CBD flowers in this list to enjoy all the nostalgic benefits of sativa without getting high.

 

What Is Sativa?

You already know what sativa does, but what makes a cannabis plant “sativa,” exactly, and what truly is the difference between sativa and indica? Let’s start by examining the growth cycle of Cannabis sativa, which is determined largely by the area where it grows in the wild.

Native to cold, arid plains and steppes, indica cannabis grows short and stocky, and it has a long growing season. Sativa cannabis, on the other hand, originally grew in more tropical climates, so it stretches upward toward the sun, bears thin, lanky colas, and matures faster than indica.

 

 

What is Cannabis Sativa?

Before we go any further, let’s clarify a point that commonly gets confused. Even though the hemp plant is called Cannabis sativa, not all cannabis strains are sativa-dominant. Over the years, the term “sativa” has come to be used to refer to hemp strains with certain attributes, and “indica” is used to refer to other strains.

Both sativa-dominant and indica-dominant cannabis strains, however, are the same species—Cannabis sativa. It might make things easier to call strains with sativa genetics strains “sativa-dominant” rather than just “sativa.”

Indica and sativa cannabis strains usually express different terpenes and flavonoids. Sativa strains, for instance, may have more limonene, a citrus-smelling terpene that’s also found in oranges, lemons, and limes. It’s the presence of this particular terpene more than any other that contributes to the “fruity” smell associated with most sativa-dominant strains.

 

 

What Does Sativa Do?

It’s unclear what causes the characteristic effects of sativa-dominant cannabis strains. Since both indica and sativa cannabis contain the same cannabinoids, it’s not as if there’s some undiscovered cannabis constituent making sativa-dominant strains hit differently than their indica cousins.

Lamentably, there’s very little research into the actual chemical differences between indica-dominant and sativa-dominant cannabis strains. When you look at Cannabis sativa flower as an interlocking mechanism of potent plant oils, however, it all starts to make sense.

The latest research indicates that cannabinoids and terpenes modulate each other as part of a phenomenon loosely referred to as the entourage effect. It appears that the various plant oils present in Cannabis sativa flower behave synergistically with one another to create effects that are strain-specific.

It’s entirely possible, for instance, that the uplifting, invigorating effects commonly associated with sativa-dominant cannabis are due to some unknown reaction between the dominant cannabinoid and limonene. More research is necessary to get to the bottom of this fascinating question.

 

 

How To Tell Indica From Sativa?

When they’re still growing, indica-dominant and sativa-dominant cannabis plants look markedly different. Indica plants have wider, purplish leaves, and sativa plants have greener, finger-shaped leaves. While sativa-dominant cannabis grows tall and stretchy, indica grows short and squat.

In dried and cured nug form, indica and sativa cannabis can be distinguished from each other with the following criteria:

Shape

Indica nugs are usually rounder and denser than their sativa counterparts.

Color

While sativa nugs are often notably green with lots of orange hairs and even hints of yellow, indica buds are commonly darker green or purplish even though healthy indica flowers also frequently have orange hairs.

Aroma

Sativa cannabis smells fruity, hazy, or like gasoline, while indica nugs usually smell more piney or sweet.

Taste

While sativa buds usually taste fruity or like candy, indica cannabis might hit the palate with spicy or creamy overtones.

 

 

How To Pick The Right CBD Sativa Buds:

Now that you’re even more of an expert on the difference between sativa and indica than you were before, it’s time to touch on some of the main points you should consider as you choose the right sativa-dominant, low-THC buds:

Customer Reviews

Brands market themselves. That’s the nature of the business world. You can’t fully trust anyone who has their own agenda, however, which is why it’s better to look to your peers for guidance. When hundreds of individual reviewers have given a brand five-star accolades, it’s clear that they’re onto something.

Lab Reports

In the absence of meaningful regulation, CBD consumers are on their own when choosing the right products. Cannabis lab testing can be very useful when determining whether a CBD brand is high-quality, and lab reports are essential if you want to verify a product’s potency.

Brand Quality

How does the brand’s website look overall? Are the product pictures clean and attractive? Is the site copy bold and elegant? Success makes better products, so go with the company that exudes the most professionalism.

Strain Variety

Choosing between a small number of high-CBD strains with sativa genetics can get old fast. Variety is key if you want to keep things interesting and get the most out of non-intoxicating cannabis, so start by considering the following excellent sativa CBD flower options from Secret Nature:
