With those broader comments made, we might turn our attention toward some more detailed analyses. We’ll start with Sativa varieties, which are known to produce uplifting highs. These aren’t the strains that make you feel mellow; rather, Sativas are usually uplifting and stimulating. If you’ve ever gotten a high that’s sent you into uncontrollable laughing fits, that was probably from a Sativa; the same with those weird, freewheeling, in-depth-conversation highs. The effects of Sativa are at once uplifting and mind-altering, which makes them particularly popular among artists and creative types. This is also the category of MMJ that’s most frequently called upon for treating mental and behavioral problems, ranging from depression to stress to ADHD.
