Originating in Asia, the Cannabis genus of flowering plants, also known as marijuana, has been cultivated for millennia as a source of food and oil, thanks to its nutritious seeds, as a source of medicine, and as a recreational drug. The term hemp refers to varieties of the cannabis plant that are cultivated for their fibre, which is used to make cloth and rope, for example.
Sativa weed comes from varieties of the cannabis plant that are specifically cultivated for their medicinal and recreational benefits.
Sativa weed comes from the Cannabis sativa plant
Sativa weed is a psychoactive drug from the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp varieties of Cannabis sativa are cultivated for their long, fibre-filled stems and low number of branches. The pointy, thin leaves and long, skinny nugs of varieties cultivated to produce sativa weed contain higher concentrations of cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the main psychoactive compound of cannabis – and cannabidiol (CBD). THC and CBD both have medical and recreational benefits.
Benefits of sativa weed
While botanists don’t agree on the number of species in the Cannabis genus, it’s still useful to talk about cannabis in terms of indica weed, hybrid weed, and sativa weed. That’s because the groupings bring together varieties of cannabis that have similar properties. For example, sativa weed strains are known to be energizing and stimulating, providing an uplifting and energetic head high. These properties make sativa strains good for daytime use. Makers and other creatives such as writers, artists, and musicians appreciate the cerebral high and sativa weed’s ability to enhance lights and sounds.
Due to the euphoric and uplifting effects of sativa cannabis, users can feel an increase in motivation, making sativa strains useful in the treatment of mild to moderate cases of depression or anxiety, as well as chronic stress, chronic fatigue, and chronic pain.
Sativa cannabis strains can provide fairly high amounts of THC thanks to the curing process that the nugs go through. Extracts of sativa weed, such as hash and other weed concentrates, contain even higher concentrations of THC.
