Our Favorite Sativa Strains in Massachusetts
When it comes to cannabis consumption, everyone wants the best sativa, indica, or hybrid strains. After all, the higher the quality of the strain, the better the experience. Of course, the level of THC (delta–9 tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD (cannabidiol), and terpene in each type vary and will influence the overall experience.
Today, we want to focus on the best sativa strains and strong sativa strains seen on dispensary menus across Massachusetts. Be sure to look at the sativa strains chart to understand sativa THC/CBD profile, effects, and benefits.
What are Sativa Strains?
‘Sativa’ is the botanical name given to a type of weed variety. The other two types are indica and hybrid. Hybrids come from cross-cultivating both species. However, sativas vs indicas are like apples and oranges in terms of their characteristics and beneficial effects.
