The prevalence of weed use in Canada is increasing. While teen cannabis use has decreased, a 2018 study found that daily weed use among American adults is on the rise.

Before diving into specific strains, it’s essential to remember that the effects typically associated with Sativa are extensive. Every person may not feel all these effects.

Strains will be felt differently by each individual. Your physiology, endocannabinoid system, and cannabinoid tolerance make you unique.

You can expect your personal history and environment to play a role in shaping your journey as well:

  • Who do you have around you, friends or strangers?
  • What happened? Was it awful?
  • Do you have something you’re dreading doing in the next few days?

The way you feel regarding specific strains may be affected by such factors.

For a heavy cannabis user with a high tolerance, a Sativa with a high concentration of THC may have the effect of an uplifting antidepressant.

However, someone with a lower tolerance or who reacts differently to different terpene profiles may have a different experience.

Finally, remember that strain identification is not an exact science and that strain identification across brands is not always consistent.

The same strain can have various uses:

1.   Strains for Energy
