What is a Sativa?
Sativa marijuana plants vary from about 6 feet to over 25 feet in height. Most varieties grow in the 8 feet to I2 feet.
The Sativa leaves are long, thin and are light green, but temperate varieties are darker green. Sativa plants have long branches and the bottom ones may spread 4 feet or more from the central stalk.
Sativa buds are long and thin, sometimes stretching 3 feet. Sativa buds require intense light to thicken and swell. Under the low light conditions the Sativa buds are very skimpy and thin but are often very potent.
Sativa marijuana buds smell sweet, fruity and perfumed. The Sativa smoke is usually smooth and easily inhaled. Sativas are found all over the world and include most of the commercial equatorial varieties such as Colombian, Mexican, Nigerian and South African where marijuana plants can be very potent.
Native Sativa marijuana plants above the 30th parallel are considered industrial hemp. Under artificial light an Indica plant will mature faster than a Sativa, over 4 weeks of extra light is required to bring a Sativa plant to maturity, even then its weight is often much lower. Hence, more indica strains are grown for sale, making the breeder wealthier.
