Cannabis Sativa is one of the most popular cannabis varieties available today, achieving massive popularity across the globe because of its recreational and medicinal benefits as well as its distinctive flavours and aromas. This type of cannabis strain type originates from Southeastern Asia, but is now is widely grown across the planet, and is highly sought-after in cannabis seed banks for the creation of potent, high THC level marijuana hybrid seeds. 

In this section, Marijuana Grow Shop will explain how to grow cannabis sativa seeds and their unique characteristics and benefits that distinguish these cannabis seeds from indica seeds and hybrid seeds. 

Typical Traits of Sativa Plants

Harvesting a sativa seed is easier when compared to pure indica cannabis seeds. Sativa seeds will develop into tall and thin cannabis plants. As such, the plant produces fewer leaves, and the buds are spread like small spherical marbles on branches of the plant, making it ideal for drying upside down. A well-grown sativa strain will typically:

  • Have long, skinny leaves
  • Have lots of side branching and plenty of space between the sets of leaves (in contrast to the shorter, squat Christmas tree formation of typical Indica strains).
  • Grow tall and fast and can double or triple in height after entering the flowering stage
  • Have “foxtails” and can be loose or airy in contrast to typical indica buds, which are usually more solid and dense. 

How to Grow Sativa Cannabis Strains?

Compared to Indica cannabis the cannabis Sativa strain needs a slightly different approach when grown. This is because these types of cannabis plants thrive in warmer climates mainly found in more tropical locations such as southeastern Asia and the Mediterranean. 

When growing pure sativa plants, you want to imitate these growing conditions in your grow room for achieving the plants maximum yield and potency. However, before you begin growing a pure sativa marijuana seed, it is essential to consider a few details.

When growing Sativa marijuana seeds, make sure to have extra height in your grow room. Sativa plants tend to grow taller than other cannabis strain varieties. At Marijuana Grow Shop, we recommend having at least 2 meters height in your grow room. If you dont have the extra height, you can always top your plants or keep it shorter during the vegetative phase.

Compared to indica seeds or hybrid seeds, sativa cannabis strains also need a longer flowering time. The original haze seeds actually required 15-16 weeks for reaching the desired yields and high THC levels. However, thanks to years of breeding and phenotype hunting, most sativa seed types grown today have a shorter flowering time of around 9-12 weeks.  As such, we do recommend that If you are planning to grow a pure sativa strain for the first time, add a few extra weeks to your grow schedule. 

Benefits of Growing Sativa Seeds

Pure sativa strains genetically originate from equatorial regions and particularly thrive in areas that have particularly hot summers and relatively mild winters. These growing conditions result in sativa plants that are remarkably tall and take longer than indica strains to flower. 

If you are planning on growing indoors, it is important to have a sufficient amount of space in your grow house as some sativa plants can grow to as large as 3 or 4 metres. 

Because of their height and the way that they grow, sativa seeds generally yield a bit less than that of indicas or hybrid strains. While indica seeds are typically considered easy to grow when compared to their sativa counterparts, patient and attentive growers will be rewarded with a plant that offers delightful energising and uplifting effects.

Here are some of the primary benefits of growing pure sativa seeds.

  • Sativa seeds require less food and marijuana fertilizer to grow into healthy and productive plants.
  • Fewer feedings are required
  • The uplifting effects associated with sativa strain types are clear-headed, motivational and ideal for daytime usage or as medical cannabis.
  • Although the flowering period can be longer than it is for indica seeds, the vegetative phase is shorter.

Due to an impressive abundance of terpenes, most of the sativa strain types on offer today provide a particularly pungent aroma when in flower, especially in the final two weeks of the flowering phase. Using quality carbon filters, or even double-sided carbon filters is something we strongly recommend if you want to reduce that distinctive cannabis aroma generated by potent sativa cannabis seeds.

The best seed banks offer cannabis sativa strains seeds in all seed types, like feminized seeds, regular seeds and even auto-flowering cannabis seeds.
