Cannabis Sativa was first classified by Carl Linnaeus in the mid-18th century, but its role in human history began long before that. Like any cannabis product, the first sativas originated in Eastern Asia but quickly spread all over the world. Sativa plants tend to be larger with leaves that are much more narrow. Sativas also take on a lighter green color than their counterpart plants. Their flavors and aromas tend to be relatively earthy and musky. In addition, sativas usually contain more CBD than THC. This is the reason sativas are often used for relieving anxiety. In addition to CBD and THC, Sativa plants can hold nearly 500 other compounds. The most popular Sativa strains in the industry include Durban Poison, Acapulco Gold, and Panama Red. These are the plants that contain the highest amounts of THC and CBD and produce psychoactive effects.
Uses of Sativa
Early humans used Sativa plants for a number of different purposes, from food and fiber to religious services and more. Eventually, every single part of the plant was harvested for a unique purpose.Today, cultivators classify sativas into three main groups. The first is plants grown for producing fiber, and these plants typically consist of long stems with few branches. The second group of plants are for producing seeds. The seeds of these plants can be used to produce hemp oil, which can then be used for hundreds of different products. Finally, there are plants grown specifically for medicinal and recreational use.
