As one reviewer (deadlightbulb) on Leafly puts it, it’s like “a tornado made it way through a strawberry field, lemon tree farm and directly into my mouth.”

A concentrate made from the Strawberry Lemonade strain took 1st in High Times’ 2015 Denver Cannabis Cup as “Best Sativa Concentrate”.

This strain is great for those suffering from chronic pain, stress, depression, lack of appetite or anxiety.

Highlighted quote (from one of the Leafly reviews):

“This strain tastes is like a tornado made it way through a strawberry field, lemon tree farm and directly into my mouth. I can’t believe how much flavor this packs! Such a tantalizing terpene profile for this sativa. It is a powerfully uplifting sativa that will give you a very nice cerebral buzz. It was a bit harsh and did make me cough, but the aftertaste was like exhaling a sweetened lemon zest.”

Indica or Sativa: What’s the Difference?

What are the differences between indica and sativa marijuana strains?

When purchasing marijuana, you might notice that strains are separated into three types; sativa, indica and hybrid, which is a mix of the two. These different species have varying effects when consumed; they also grow slightly differently.

Indica Marijuana Strains

Indica strains tend to have a much stronger “head high” than sativas; this results in a relaxed experience that’s excellent for insomnia and pain relief. Most people find indicas a little too heavy to take during the day; at least if you plan to do much more than hang out at home and play video games (not necessarily a bad thing).

As a plant, indica marijuana strains tend to be shorter and wider than sativa plants, growing between 3.2 to 9.8 feet tall. Indica marijuana plants flower considerably faster than sativas, and are more easily influenced by an alternation of light cycles.

Below is a list of some of the most popular indica marijuana strains on the market:

  • Northern Lights

    Pineapple kush.
  • Pineapple Kush
  • ICE
  • OG Kush
  • Blue Mystic

 

Sativa Marijuana Strains

Sativa strains tend to be more popular than indica strains, especially among new consumers. They tend to have a much more energizer and uplifiting high; this makes it suitable for daytime use.

Although sativa strains aren’t as strong or “heavy” as indica strains, they still have vast medical value; they are particularly useful for anxiety, increasing appetite, reducing nausea and a large number of other things.

As a plant, sativa marijuana strains are taller and thinner than indica strains; in some cases they can reach up to 20 feet in length, though are more often somewhere between 8 and 12 feet.

Hybrid Marijuana Strains

Hybrid marijuana strains are a combination of sativa and indica. This may be a 50/50 split, or it may be more of an 80/20 split.

Below is a list of some of the most popular hybrid marijuana strains on the market:

  • Tahoe OG Kush

    Girl Scout Cookies.
