For some people, the way to tell if a sativa strain is quality is by the potency of it. They might be convinced that the best strains have the highest levels of THC in them, and they don’t look at any other aspect of the weed.
But for others, the taste of the strain is what matters. Perhaps you consider yourself to be a connoisseur or a flavour chaser. Luckily, there are many high-quality strains to choose from, many of which have unique flavour profiles. They offer the depth and complexity that you expect from the best strains, and many have very high levels of THC.
About Sativa Strains
One reason that so many people like sativa strains is because they offer such an uplifting, stimulating high. A sativa strain offers a highly psychedelic experience. You can perform many activities when you take sativa, unlike with an indica, which tends to put the user to sleep more. If you are an artist, are a writer, or just want to socialize, sativas can benefit you. Many times, users report that they feel more inspired and happier after using this kind of cannabis.
Just remember that as with any kind of cannabis, you should not take too much. Taking too much might result in anxiety, paranoia, or heart palpitations. Some people choose to use it medically since they believe it may help with eating disorders, depression, or other conditions. Of course, you would not use this kind of marijuana for anxiety or insomnia.
Many times, sativa plants have higher levels of THC in them than indica plants. This is one reason they are considered to be more psychedelic. The good news is that you can find any number of sativa strains to help you boost your mood or improve your social life.
This is a winner with many cannabis users, especially for creating great concentrates. Tangie is even more popular than Orange Juice if you are looking for a strong citrus flavour. It has an extremely high concentration of the terpene limonene. This gives the flavour and aroma of a clementine. This mouth-watering strain is both fruity and sweet, and it even gives a hint of white pepper to tie everything together.
2. Strawberry Cough
Although there are thousands of new strains with strawberry flavours, Strawberry Cough is still near the top of the list. It offers a decadent, rich flavour to your smoking experience. Some strains with notes of strawberry are sweet almost to the point of excess, like desserts that have artificial ingredients in them. But many people prefer the subtler hints in this strain. Although it may not be as obvious or immediate, the flavour is also closer to real strawberries.
3. Super Lemon Haze
Unless you have tried Super Lemon Haze, you can’t consider yourself a well-rounded cannabis user. This is a modern classic and brings together rich buttery notes with a sharp citrus taste. It can be a very enjoyable citrus strain. Think of the scent of buttery popcorn with a tart lemon cake. Super Lemon Haze should never smell sour, and if it does, you likely have a poor batch.
For growers, Super Lemon Haze is also very popular since it is fairly easy to grow. At the same time, it offers a high yield. If you like to pair your bud with food, this strain is a great compliment for nearly any kind of seafood.
4. Black Cherry Soda
If you are looking for a masterpiece when it comes to cannabis, Black Cherry Soda is the strain for you. You might expect it to be extremely sugary while having a cherry scent. This is what you get, but what can be surprising is the extremely potent cherry scent when you start using it. Think of concentrated cola, and this strain is the syrupy undertone you will notice.
5. Blue Dream
This is an extremely popular strain. One of the reasons is that it grows so quickly with such a high yield. It also offers a strong indica high and an amazing flavour profile. It has notes of spiciness covered in sweetness and a hint of blueberry. This strain gives you a satisfying, unique smoke.
6. Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies
No discussion on popular strains would be complete without mentioning Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. This is still one of the most popular strains among smokers, growers, and sellers, meaning it is not just some passing flavour. It has a large dose of Durban Poison, and the undertones of pine were sometimes too high in older versions of this strain, meaning Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies didn’t smell good. But today, the growers have managed to perfect the strain, meaning you will get a silky, satisfying, and smooth hit every time you smoke it.
7. Amnesia Haze
This has one of the greatest combinations of genetics when it comes to sativa. The buds have around 25 percent of THC in them. This strain is popular among growers since it resists mould so well. The genetics are around 90 percent pure sativa. It is highly relaxing and has a buzz that sneaks up but hits you hard. If you want to grow it inside, you can expect to get around 600 grams for each square metre.
The limbs are long, and the nuggets are heavily laden with THC. Many growers like it since it has a small leaf-to-bud ratio. The plants are large and have an oily resin. Although it might take a little longer to flower, many users find that it is worthwhile.
With so many cannabis strains out there and more being developed each year, it can be hard to pick the right one for you. Remember that you do not have to try them all at once. After all, it takes time to become a cannabis connoisseur. Before you know it, your friends will be the ones asking you for advice.
