Sativas are tall plants that can reach a height of 20 feet, with loose branches covered in long and narrow leaves. Sativa thrives in warm climates, such as Thailand, Mexico, Columbia and Southeast Asia – regions that are in close proximity to the equator. The plant takes longer to flower, relative to its Indica counterpart, and appears as a lighter shade of green. Sativas also provide a higher yield, typically between 3 ounces to a pound per each individual plant. The presence of red or orange color on the buds is a good sign of a sativa lineage, along with a more fruity or tropical aroma.
