Sativa Simplified: Your Guide to Consuming, Storing Buying, and Growing Sativa Marijuana

Posted by on December 17, 2020 in Environment, Farming with 0 Comments

When buying marijuana, you generally have three choices: sativa, indica, or a hybrid strain. Some people may like the relaxing effect of indica, while others prefer the energy brought on by sativa strains. There are plenty of cannabis products available, such as edibles, tinctures, and bud — but before you buy anything, it's crucial that you understand the difference between sativa and indica options.

What is Sativa?

Sativa comes from tall-structured plants that have thin leaves and grow in hot climates. Compared to indica, sativa strains have lower CBD levels and higher THC levels, contributing to the energizing and creative effects after consuming it, instead of a lazy and relaxed feeling.

Indica, on the other hand, grows in dry, harsh climates and has short, thick leaves. Since this plant has higher doses of CBD and less THC, it may lead to an intensely relaxed feeling and drowsiness.

Consuming Sativa

Since sativa may leave you energized or excited, you may want to consume it during the daytime and not at night because you may find it challenging to fall asleep. Alternatively, you can use indica when you want to unwind with friends.

Apart from this, if you're having trouble with your appetite, feel depressed, or feel like you're stuck in a rut, sativa may help to improve appetite, alleviate depression symptoms, and boost creativity so that you can focus.

Storing Sativa

Although you may find a harvest date on your marijuana products, it does have a lifespan, and several factors can contribute to it losing its freshness. Here are some ways to store marijuana and extend its shelf life:

  • Store it Correctly– Exposing marijuana to oxygen and light can significantly degrade it and cause it to age even further. It may even lose its THC properties over time. Instead of using a plastic bag or tray that can damage the product, store it in a dark container.
  • Don't Let Moisture In– If you store your marijuana in a transparent container, where light can get to it, it will lose its potency and moisture levels with time. However, if there's too much moisture or water, it can also affect its THC levels.
  • Monitor the Storing Temperature– While warmer temperatures can cause mold or mildew, lower temperatures, on the other hand, can make it harder to release THC afterward. Instead, keep it in a cool dark room or place that's slightly below room temperature.

Buying Sativa

Before you start buying in bulk, you should look for a sativa guide for first time buyers. You can try out different strains, such as Jack Herer, Green Crack, Tangie, Durban Poison, and Super Silver Haze.

Once you figure out what you want, you should also decide if you wish to find dispensaries online or visit a store. Here are a few tips for finding a quality seller:

  • Use a search engine to look for nearby dispensaries and filter your search according to your preferences.
  • Make sure that you have a look at ratings and read reviews to find legalized and excellent stores.
  • Check out online menus to determine if the store has products you like or offers discounts and other bonus points.
  • It would be best if you also combed through in-depth reviews and blogs for people who have had first-hand experiences with certain stores.

Growing Sativa

While it may not be too complicated to grow sativa, you need to learn how to get started to improve your chances of success. Before you commit to growing, make sure that you have a high ceiling or enough space for the plant to grow since sativa plants tend to get very tall. When you're ready to buy the seeds, make sure you get them from an expert or an excellent dispensary.

To get started, you'll need grow-lights, fans, water, and nutrients. While marijuana plants do well in high light levels and some heat, colder temperatures will stress them. Once you've got your setup ready, make sure to provide the plant with nutrients, water, lighting, air circulation, and regular pruning to improve the chances of denser yields.

Research and Make the Most of Sativa Cannabis

There are many things to consider when using, storing, buying, and growing cannabis, so you should do your research to ensure you're getting the most of your marijuana. If you're planning to nurture a plant indoors, make sure you have everything you need to improve the chances of better yields. Start small, as you can always grow your miniature farm later on.
