Cannabis sativa is associated with energy, creativity and daytime functionality. It can be smoked throughout the day without overdoing things and ending up asleep on the couch. For those with green fingers, autoflowering strains are easy to grow.
Almost everybody who enjoys cannabis is aware of what kind of strain gives them their preferred kind of high. With a booming cannabis industry in some parts of the world, and breeding innovation and perfection reaching new heights, there is a huge plethora of tastes, smells and sensations available to all. The two main distinctions in what kind of high a smoker is going to experience is whether they are choosing to burn either indica or sativa weed.
Of these two main subspecies, sativas are known for their stimulating nature, buzzy high and feelings of positivity and energy. In comparison to indica, sativa plants are a lot taller and therefore suited well to outdoor growth. They develop leaves with slender and long fingers and grow large and bushy.
A rather less well known third species, Cannabis ruderalis, has been bred with sativa strains to create autoflowering sativa plants, with autoflowering being a genetic trait found within Cannabis ruderalis. Autoflowering is a desirable characteristic among growers, removing the need to alter the photoperiod to force a plant into flower, ultimately making the plants easier to grow.
This combination of genetics offers growers the opportunity to cultivate a wide range of sativa strains with ease. Here are the top 5 autoflowering sativa strains available today.
