At MediThrive Cannabis Dispensary, we are often asked if Sativa strains provide a boost of energy. The answer is yes and no. While sativas tend to offer a more “cerebral” high and infuse a burst of creativity and productivity, the effects are more about the plant’s chemical composition rather than how it grows. Whether classified as a Sativa, Indica, or hybrid, the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids create a unique experience for the individual. 

Sativa Strains at MediThrive Cannabis Dispensary

Named by Swedish botanist Carl Linneaus, plants thrive in the hot, dry climates found in Southeast Asia, Central America, Africa, and certain areas of Western Asia. The plants are tall and thin, sometimes growing 12 feet, and feature finger-like leaves. Typically, sativas offer a higher THC and lower CBD ratio. Preeminent terpenes include limonene and beta-caryophyllene.

Because of its stimulating effects, Sativa products are recommended for daytime use.

Some of the most well-known Sativa strains include:

  • Strawberry Cough
  • Blue Dream
  • Durban Poison
  • Super Silver Haze
