Top 10 Sativa strains 2020

They are associated with feelings of happiness that causes users to spiral into fits of laughter with a heightened sense of excitement. They are best suited for social events because of the happy feelings that they create.

A Keen eye may easily identify a sativa just by looking at a cannabis plant. Unlike indicas, sativa plants are tall and slender and will have narrow leaves that attach loosely to the stalks of the plants. The nugs are often smaller even when fully mature and ready for harvest.
