Sativas strains of marijuana are known for providing a psychologically stimulating experience. They can promote more in-depth, self-analysis and reflection. Sativa can also increase senses for cannabis smokers, allowing them to see, for instance, brighter colors around them. This means that THC oil from Sativa strains can offer an incredibly intense experience for those unfamiliar with it. Check out our featured Sativa products below and learn more about what exactly it is and its beneficial effects.
Sativa strains are popular as their effects are often described as uplifting and energetic. Unlike their indica counterparts, sativas are most commonly used for daytime pain relief. Hybrid strains offer a combination of effects between sativas and indicas.
Sativa Dominant Hybrid – 85% Sativa / 15% Indica
Named after the classic 1967 Jimi Hendrix’s song, Purple Haze is a sativa dominant hybrid (85:15 sativa/indica) that is believed to be a cross between the rare Purple Thai and Haze strains. The Purple Haze aroma is a pleasant one for the senses – combining a sharp nose of spice and berries, with sweet, earthy undertones. Purple Haze remains to be one of the most popular sativa strains, for it’s high energy, cerebral stimulation that excites creativity and mental focus. This strain should not be taken lightly – as some novice users may experience almost psychedelic-like symptoms at high dosages. A potent sativa that works best at treating conditions such as fatigue, and mild to moderate cases of depression, anxiety and stress.
Black Widow, a spider, known for its deadly venom and eating its partner after sex. Its name alone runs shivers down the spine, haunting those who enter its vicinity.
Don’t worry; you can breathe a sigh of relief, we’re not covering the nightmare-inducing spider today.
Black Widow is a Sativa dominant hybrid. It originated as “White Widow” grown by Shantibaba from Green House Seeds. Shantibaba crossed a Brazillian Sativa and South Indian Indica, which became his staple train. Soon after leaving Green House Seeds and creating Mr. Nice Seeds, he tweaked the recipe, renaming the strain Black Widow.
Black Widow and White Widow do share similarities but make no mistake; they are different. Let’s say we’re lucky to have both, as each brings their element to the table.
Black Widow first made its presence known in the 1995 High Times Cannabis Cup, winning the distinguished award of the “Best strain of the year.” Since then, along with White Widow, it’s made plenty of appearances in pop culture.
