Sativa cannabis strains are known for their energizing and uplifting effects on users. Some common characteristics of sativa strains include: Energetic and uplifting: Sativa strains are often associated with increased energy levels and a cerebral, uplifting high. Many users report feeling more creative, motivated, and focused after consuming sativa. Mental stimulation: Sativa strains may enhance cognitive functions and promote a sense of well-being. They are often preferred for daytime use or social gatherings because they are believed to stimulate conversation and creativity. High THC content: Sativa strains typically have higher levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive compound responsible for the "high" feeling, compared to CBD (cannabidiol), the non-intoxicating compound.
