Sativa plants thrive in warmer weather and love sunlight, which makes it the ideal strain to be grown outdoors. Most of the original sativa strains of marijuana originated near the equator in places like Mexico, Thailand, Colombia, and South East Asia.
The sativa plant grows tall (10-12ft) and produces light-green colored, fluffy buds compared to the dense buds produced by indica strains. Yield sizes for sativa plants are on the lower end which can range from 9 to 20 oz. per plant all depending on the grow operation.
