That sativa smile

Most users know that the two main distinctions of marijuana strains are sativa and indica. Indica puts you in-da-couch ready for a good binge or better yet, some zzzzs.

But that oh-so-killer-shit-eatin’-grin paired with the desire to get out there and embrace mother nature, create your next masterpiece or pontificate on why we exist… most likely a Sativa strain at work on your beautiful self. Sativas have been and still are considered to be the strain that uplifts our emotions.

There are many reasons for this and it can be further illustrated when looking at the effects and make up of sativas. Typically, any sativa strain can be described as delivering energizing, uplifting, and cerebral highs. Which is why sativa strains are often used to treat anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. They are also said to increase the focus and creativity of the user. This can be attributed to the increase serotonin in the body when sativas are consumed. This neurotransmitter regulates mood, appetite, and sleep and generally makes a person happier.

When someone is more energized, they will be more active, allowing for an escape from the mundane. This in turn uplifts their mood and temperament making for a happier camper.  Not only does this strain affect the chemicals in the body positively it also activates the mind in an uplifting way. Check out any sativa strain next time you’re on the hunt for a good time. Our personal faves are Blue Dream, Mimosa, and Sudae Driver.

Know that a cerebral high makes you more creative and generally content.

Consult your local Blissologist (budtender) when trying new strains! Then sit back and show us those pearly whites.
