best sativa marijuana seeds

It’s a common misconception that sativas aren’t as potent as indicas. On the contrary, numerous sativa strains contain between 20–30% THC, just like top-shelf indicas. This way, you get all the high, without the drowsy, couch-lock feeling you might get from an indica. Fancy a nice hike or looking to engage in a creative endeavour? A sativa strain is one you might prefer!

Although a lot of people tend to gravitate towards strong indica strains, there are a lot of sativas that are equally impressive! Here are the top 10 sativa strains of 2020.

1. GREEN CRACK PUNCH

To help you find the right specimen, we’ve put together a list of the top 10 sativa strains of 2020. Enjoy!

Green Crack Punch is the offspring of two extremely popular strains: the sativa-dominant Green Crack, and Purple Punch, a potent indica-leaning strain. This makes for a great high—energetic, uplifting, and creative at the start, then finishing off with a nice lazy feeling. It’s also a great strain to use for muscle aches. When cultivated in ideal conditions, preferably indoors, growers can yield up to 500g/m² of flowers with roughly 20% THC.

Barney’s farm doesn’t sell their fantastic Laughing Buddha as a medicine. Nevertheless, all it takes is that you experience her uplifting and motivating high where you may find yourself giggling for hours and you will certainly agree with the old saying that laughing and happiness is often the best medicine. This is a great strain to battle depression and other mood disorders! The award winning Laughing Buddha is a cross between Thai and Jamaican power strains. It has a sweet and fruity aroma where you can find hints of spice as well. Like her great high, her awesome taste will add to a positive and happy experience when you meet the lady. The Laughing Buddha might require a little more care compared to some other strains since its massive colas may often want to be supported or pruned due to the sheer weight of bud she’ll grow. Needless to say, every grower will be happy to do this because it means they can look forward to a harvest that’s nothing short of spectacular.

Dinafem’s excellent Moby Dick is a winner and this isn’t just a phrase. The strain won in the “Best Sativa” class multiple times, including at the Copa del Plata in 2008 and the Summer Cup Canarias in 2011. She has also won several THC categories in 2011 in Valencia and the “Best Outdoor Cannabis Seed” category at the Copa Cannamex in 2015. What makes Dinafem’s Moby Dick, a mix of Haze and the fabulous White Widow stand out is her potency, enormous yields and the fact that everyone can grow her easily. After a flowering time of 60-70 days, she will reward the grower with respectable yields of up to 1500g per plant outdoors and up to 650g/m² indoors. She has a very pleasant flavour that combines a hazey aroma of pine and incense with refreshing citrus notes. Her effect is very potent and just the right thing if you want to relax mind and body.

When Royal Queen Seeds introduced their 70% sativa dominant Amnesia Haze, it didn’t take long for her to gain immense popularity in the cannabis scene. Even today, she is still a big favorite in many coffeeshops in Amsterdam. If you’re wondering why the award-winning strain got so popular, her super-high THC content of 22% might explain things. However, it’s not just her out-of-this-world potency that made Amnesia Haze a legend in no time. She is also well liked for her smooth flavour that complements the typical Haze aroma with delicious fresh and fruity notes. Growers can look forward to good yields of up to 600g/m² indoors and 700g per plant outside in optimal conditions. Her 22% THC should give it away, she sure isn’t a smoke for the faint-hearted. She’ll give an amazing psychedelic head high and you may find yourself floating in the sky after just one toke or two. Royal Queen Seeds’ Amnesia Haze is truly a spectacular strain that should be high on the list of every sativa lover!

6. Laughing Buddha (Barney’s Farm)

By combining the genes of the Indica and the Sativa species growers are offered the best of both worlds, it opens up a much broader spectrum of plant characteristics. No longer do you have to choose, you can combine! Sativa strains tend to deliver a more uplifting high effect but have a longer flowering time. Here we offer a selection of which Sativa dominant strains are most ordered by our customers. We consider a strain as ‘sativa-dominant’ when the % of sativa is between 51- 90%. When sativa influence goes over 90% we consider it a (pure) sativa.

Dutch Passion went through lengths to create what they wanted to be the “fruitiest variety imaginable”. They combined some of the best North American genetics with unique European genes for their Strawberry Cough, which turned out a huge success. As the name may already suggest, Strawberry Cough will please your taste buds with the wonderful aroma and flavour of fresh strawberry. Strawberry Cough has a medium high THC content which makes her effect pleasant and not too overwhelming. Growers will like her short flowering time of only 9 weeks and the fact that she is rather easy-going and just needs some basic things so that she can grow with amazing results. The plant will also stay at a manageable height, which is important for all those where growing space is limited. A wonderful sativa-dominant strain that pleases all-around!

If you want a spectacular new hybrid, the recipe for this is straight-forward: Cross two spectacular strains. This is exactly what Dinafem did when they crossed legendary Jack Herer with the equally acclaimed Critical. Dinafem created a top quality hybrid with Critical Jack that pleases growers and connoisseurs in many ways. Given its top-of-the-line genetics, Critical Jack is very easy to grow and flowers fast while having outstanding robustness and vigour. It won’t grow out of control which makes it a good strain for any growing spaces. As you would expect from a top strain, Critical Jack will grow thick and fat buds that will be oozing with resin at harvest-time. Critical Jack’s flavour is first class as well. She has an intense aroma that reminds of exotic wood, incense and spice which is beautifully accented with refreshing notes of citrus on top. She gives a cerebral, energizing and creative high that is long-lasting. Perfect for creative work, reading or watching a movie together with some friends.

A bold and powerful strain, Delahaze by Paradise Seeds is a truly impressive sativa-dominant hybrid. Because of its outstanding qualities, the strain has already won multiple awards. Paradise Seeds managed successfully to create a new generation hybrid by carefully selecting from today’s best Haze phenotypes. The result is a stellar Haze plant with extraordinary potency and spectacular harvest potential. Growers love Delahaze because of her rather short flowering time of only 9 weeks. She is very robust and is in particular resistant against mold. Unlike other Hazes, this one stays manageable and won’t grow out of control if you flower her early enough. Her high is very euphoric and uplifting but not too trippy. It’s a very pleasant body buzz so you can her smoke her during the day too if you want a boost of energy. Just know that her high can last very long, some who met the lady report amazing encounters that can last more than 4 hours.
