Cannabis Sativa 101
Those new to cannabis may be wondering what Cannabis Sativa even means or why it’s relevant. (If, on the other hand, you’re a seasoned connaisseur, feel free to skip this section.)
The term Cannabis Sativa simply refers to cannabis strains that cause an uplifting, invigorating high. Sativas are usually tall and lean; sometimes they’re less resinous than their Indica counterparts. Sativas tend to be high in terpenes like pinene and low in terpenes like myrcene, which further contributes to their energizing effects.
Is a Sativa strain right for you? It depends: Sativas are great for those who need a little extra motivation; they’re a perfect companion for social situations and daily tasks alike. Here are some of their most common health benefits:
- Reduced anxiety
- Reduced sadness
- Reduced depression
- Improved emotions
- Improved motivation
- Expanded creativity
Sativa vs. Indica
Cannabis Sativa sets itself apart from Cannabis Indica in several ways.
Let’s start with an especially obvious difference: Sativas look different. They’re taller and thinner than Indicas; some of them even look more like hemp than conventional cannabis. Indeed, the term Cannabis Sativa used to refer to low-THC hemp, and this visual similarity has stuck with the term over time.
Even more important are the differences in effects. Sativas tend to make you want to get up and do stuff! They contain slightly different cannabinoid and terpene profiles than other types of cannabis, and these compounds are able to activate your body’s endocannabinoid receptors in a way that’s uplifting and pure.
What makes our Sativa’s so good?

Top-grade Sativas? You bet.
Our team of master growers has done it again, curating dozens of Sativa strains designed to give you maximum euphoria. There are 24 premium strains in total, with more on the way soon…here’s a closer look.
Sunkiss CBD Smalls | This Sativa-dominant hybrid is characterized by its unusually high CBD content — and the specially refined mood boost it provides. Coming in at 1.5 parts CBD for every 1 part THC, Sunkiss CBD Smalls is perfect for those who want some euphoria without THC overload. It’s also perfect for cannabis “beginners” whose bodies haven’t become accustomed to regular consumption yet.
What about the taste, you might ask? It’s simply delectable. Sunkiss CBD has a light citrus taste and a stronger citrus smell; this combo has made it an instant hit among MMJ Direct customers. We can’t complain about the anti-inflammatory effects either.
Supremium Pre-Rolls| As the name implies, these pre-rolls offer premium quality and supreme taste. How? It might be the variety; Supremium’s Sativa offerings include Strawberry Cough, Lemon Haze, and Pineapple Thai.
Or maybe it’s the convenience. Pre-rolls afford beginners and experienced users alike the opportunity to light up on demand — no grinding, rolling, or wrapping required. To top it all off, Supremium products are affordably priced.
Lemon Sour Diesel| This Sativa has won multiple awards and placed in the top 10 at the Emerald Cup cannabis festival. Has it won your heart yet? If not…you’re probably missing out.
Lemon Sour Diesel is a delightful cross of California Sour and Lost Coast OG, which means it’s around 80% Sativa and 20% Indica. Its THC levels are nicely balanced, too, so this strain provides a strong-but-manageable high.
The taste, as you might expect, is amazing. Notes of sweet lemon clash with peppery undertones in what must be an epic battle for your tastebuds (epic in a good way, of course). The taste isn’t as diesel as the smell is, but still, you can be sure that this bud is dank.
Blue Dream | This Sativa-dominant strain is a rather mysterious cross between the haze and blueberry lineages. It’s one of the more relaxing Sativas out there; while it won’t make you outright tired, Blue Dream’s 40% Indica heritage means its effects are nice and balanced out.
As nice as these effects are, Blue Dream first rose to prominence within the medical community. It powerfully counteracts pain, anxiety, and more. Even muscle spasms are no match for its anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic effects.
Jack Herer | This one’s a classic. For those unfamiliar, Jack Herer is a pure Sativa named after the longtime cannabis advocate and author of the same name. It’s energizing, heady, and far more powerful than its THC content implies.
Jack Herer also has a very unique smell. It’s definitely piney, but loamy too, and this unique scent tends to give users a strong sense of connection with the earth. If you want to get blitzed and get things done, consider this the strain for you. Jack Herer may also help those in the fight against degenerative diseases.
Mimosa | Mimosa is a Sativa-dominant strain that’s relatively new to the scene, but don’t let that fool you — this one is as premium as it gets. It’s won several Cannabis Cups in the last few years, and it’s a newfound favourite for many of our customers.
Mimosa is a cross between Purple Punch and Clementine, which explains its uniquely tropical, pineapple-infused aroma. While Mimosa can be immensely helpful when you need to get things done, it’s strong enough that taking too much of it can have the opposite effect. We’ve also found Mimosa to be great at alleviating the effects of depression and anxiety.

Cannabis tips for you
Imagine you’ve just ordered a few Sativa strains, and now they’ve arrived. Time to enjoy!
Actually, not so fast. It’s worth putting a little effort into keeping your bud fresh before you get too carried away! Here’s how it’s done.
- Place your bud in an airtight glass jar. Some jars have a rubber seal and pressurized lid — those are probably best. Add in a humidity pack for maximum preservation. Remember, the terpenes that give cannabis its beloved smells are sensitive. Treat yours with care, and it’ll treat you well, too.
- Use a grinder to chop and mix your cannabis into a powder just before you plan to smoke it. And don’t rush; you should mix your bud until it’s developed a fine, airy consistency. This consistency will allow plenty of airflows to get in when it does come time to smoke and inhale.
- Don’t allow your cannabis to get broken down by the elements…show it some love! Anything from high temperatures to direct sunlight can slowly break down your bud’s most important ingredients. The more you can ward off these forces, the better, so store your cannabis in a cool, dry, dark place, like a closet or refrigerator.
