Cannabis Sativa is an annual cannabis plant that originates in the equator regions. So unlike its Indica cousins, the Sativa plant flourishes in tropical climates. Cannabis Sativa was classified as a species in 1735. Its leaves are more narrow and it grows higher than the bushy Indica plant.

The flowers of the Cannabis Sativa plant are not a strong sedative, instead they have more of an uplifting effect.
