The world of cannabis used to be black and white. Long ago, there were only Sativa and Indica strains. Nowadays, most marijuana strains are hybrids and dominant in either Sativa or Indica traits. That doesn’t stop us from providing some of the best Sativa dominant strains at our cannabis dispensary in Palm Springs. Here’s our guide to choosing the best Sativa from Cookies Palm Springs!
What Does a High-Quality Sativa Look Like?
Finding the perfect strain is an art form. It takes time to learn and develop your craft. Veteran smokers will know what to look for and avoid. So, if you’re a newcomer to the cannabis world, what should you look for in Sativa dominant strains?
Caked In Trichomes
High-quality buds are going to be caked in trichomes, whether they’re Sativa-dominant, Indica-dominant, or Hybrids. Trichomes are tiny crystals that look almost like snowflakes. Generally speaking, the more trichomes a strain has, the more it will be.
Each strain of cannabis will have a unique smell. The best strains are going to smell incredibly dank. Sativa dominant strains can smell like diesel, pine, skunk, and more. Be sure you’re smelling your cannabis before purchasing. It should smell organic and natural. If a strain smells like there have been chemicals added, it’s best to avoid it.
Feels Sticky to the Touch
The way a strain feels is going to vary depending on a lot of factors. Generally speaking, when you purchase a fresh strain, it should be slightly sticky to the touch. If a strain is too sticky, it may not grind as well or be an indicator that it wasn’t cured for long enough. If a strain is too dry, it might be older or less potent. Learning what to look for in a strain is a skill and takes time to develop.
