THIS CHAPTER INCLUDES information on cannabinoid content, taste and aroma, potency effects (both medicinal and recreational), common medicinal uses, and potential unwanted effects (such as dizziness, dry eyes, and dry mouth) of specific sativa strains. We include the percentage of THC and CBD content for each strain, and when possible, the percentages of other cannabinoids as well. These are average percentages, subject to change based on environmental variations. Just because the percentage of a certain cannabinoid isn’t listed, that doesn’t mean it’s not present in the strain. Unfortunately, cannabinoids other than THC and CBD are still not as well known or tested and therefore are not as available for reporting.

It is also important to understand not only the differences among various strains, but also the potential differences between one strain from two different plants. Environmental factors such as temperature, sunlight, soil type, and nutrients can affect the final output and effects of a plant. While each strain has pretty defined genetics, don’t be surprised if Cinex from one grower isn’t quite the same as Cinex from another.

Just as in the last chapter, you will notice some bizarre (and even obscene) strain names. The names of strains can originate from their appearance, origin, or sometimes even a silly reference created years ago.

Hybrids began as an attempt to bring out the best of both indicas and sativas. They are loved by patients who are looking for a blend of sativa and indica effects. As noted in the previous chapters, researchers continue to find little difference in the effects of indicas and sativas, and it’s unlikely that these classifications will be accurate when discussing hybrids, too. Instead, pay more attention to the available cannabinoid and terpene content of each strain when seeking out the best fit for your symptoms.
