Best sativa cannabis seed genetics
Cannabis sativa seeds are the starting point for growing sativa plants, a cannabis species (or subspecies) which displays certain traits and features. Traditionally, this has been one of the categorizations (along with indica) which has dominated how cannabis plants are defined. However plants grown from cannabis sativa seeds are also known as narrow leaf cannabis strains, a term that has gained popularity over time.
Paradise Seeds sativa cannabis seeds produce plants which have been bred for performance, but the legacy of their genetics can be traced back to original landrace sativa strains in many cases. Sativa strains are found growing naturally in many regions of the southern hemisphere including South America, Africa and Southeast Asia.
As mentioned previously, sativa seeds are known for producing distinctive long narrow leaves (in contrast to indica plants which have broad leaves) and they also have a longer flowering period than indica plants, bening ready from mid – late October in the northern hemisphere and mid – late April in the southern hemisphere.
Characteristics of sativa seeds cannabis plants
Cannabis sativa, or sativa cannabis (or simply sativa), displays a different growth pattern to indica plants, and a different effect also.
A key difference between sativa seeds and indica seeds is in regards to the height of plants, as they tend to grow much taller and this is something to bear in consideration if a grow space has height restrictions.
Cannabis sativa seeds grow into plants which are known for their tendency to reach for the light and this can cause them to ‘stretch’ during the growing process. Experienced sativa seeds indoor growers will often train their plants in order to avoid this issue and there are plenty of tutorials available as a guide to this process.
Meanwhile, for outdoor growers, especially in sunnier, warmer regions, outdoor sativa cannabis plants can grow up to 2 – 3 meters tall! Sativa plants also produce narrower, longer buds (flowers) and for this reason yields may be smaller, but some varieties have been bred for bigger yields.
High performance cannabis sativa seeds features
Most sativa seeds for sale are not 100% sativa plants. Often a plant is described as being ‘sativa dominant’ or ‘mostly sativa’ and will consist of 80 – 90% sativa genes.
The reason for this is that modern feminized cannabis strains have been bred for high performance and the uniformity that would be missing from a pure landrace sativa sativa.
As a consequence, it will include a percentage of indica which has been introduced to stabilize the strain.
The best sativa seeds are produced by breeding and back crossing reliable parent strains to produce a sativa dominant strain. Paradise Seeds has a very high quality sativa collection, and many of these are cannabis cup winners.
