Weed smokers love sativa strains because they offer a psychoactive high not found in indica strains. While the effects of indica include a deep relaxation, the sativa strains are considered better because they provide more mental clarity. Sometimes hybrids strains—mixtures between indica and sativa—are made to give the user the maximum benefit.
Top 10 sativa strains that you should consider trying the next time you’re shopping for legal weed
1. Royal Madre
This is a hybrid blend of 25% indica strain and 75% sativa strain. This particular blend balances out the levels of CBD and THC, which is perfect for medical treatment purposes. For the grower, the Royal Madre plant matures fast so it can be harvested in as little as eight weeks.
2. Power Flower
This plant is best grown in warmer climates such as Florida and California. It gives the user a cerebral high, causing them to become energetic and focused. If you live in colder climates, don’t worry because you can use a 600-watt light to easily grow a Power Flower indoors and be able to harvest 640 grams per square meter. The bud’s tastes will resemble the sweet and sour taste of a lemon.
3. Sour Diesel
This dark green plant has a frosty look and long hairs that are brownish-orange in color. It almost has a diesel aroma that gotten be mistaken along with undertones of pine and fruit, particularly citrus lemon. When you use Sour Diesel, it will make you feel relaxed and calm, with a bit of a hazy head high. But with 10% indica and 90% sativa, it will not impact your judgment that much at all.
4. Fruit Spirit
This will give you one of the sweetest-tasting highs you’ll ever have. Fruit Spirit is derived from very sweet skunk plants which can be grown outdoors or indoors. With 600 watts of light indoors, you could harvest around 400 grams of the strain per square meter. But if grown it outdoors, the plant can grow as high as two meters and produce 1000 grams of strain.
5. Green Crack
This particular strain has had a lot of different names. It used to be called Kush back in the 1970s when it was first developed. Years later, rapper Snoop Dogg renamed the strain Green Crack Kush. People thought the name was too long though so they just started calling it Green Crack. It is said to have a sweet and fruity taste to it. The user will experience a strong high, which is supposed to help relief symptoms of stress, anxiety, and pain.
6. Lambs Bread
This strain originated in Jamaica. It is green and sticky, but it is one of the highest-rated sativa strains available to consumers.

This is worth trying the next time you look for a strain to smoke with friends or even by yourself.
