Physically and psychologically, the blooms of different cannabis Sativa plants are similar. While these strains are often praised for their energetic, uplifting, and creative qualities, it’s crucial to keep in mind that individual tolerance, environment, and other circumstances may significantly alter how you feel under their influence.

It’s important to remember to start with a shallow dose when attempting a new strain. If the first dosage is well tolerated, you may gradually increase it.
