Sativa strains are best for pain relief and the preferred bud for medicinal marijuana users. Sativas tend to produce more energetic highs, providing feelings of creativity and motivation.

Cerebral and expansive, this high stimulates the brain and makes the user feel active, making it perfect for daytime use.

Sativa plants are tall and thin with narrow leaves in a light green color. It takes three to four months for buds to mature and sativas require lots of light, making them ideal for outdoors growing (plus these things can reach up to feet in height). The yield is lower but more potent than that of an indica.
