A cross between Blueberry Indica and Haze Sativa, Blue Dream is one of the best indoor sativa strains. You can grow it outside, but you’ll need a dry, mild climate and the strain tends to attract bugs. When grown indoors, this strain can reach up to 67 inches and height and produces a large yield that makes it well worth the effort. This plant usually flowers in a little over two months.

#4 Blue Haze


With 80% sativa and 20% THC, Blue Haze packs a punch that makes it one of the best sativa strains for energy.

#6 Chocolope


Chocolope is made from 90% sativa, making it close to a “pure” sativa strain. This strain offers 19% THC and gives you a strong boost of energy and motivation in the morning. The high fades relatively quickly, but it leaves behind a sense of happiness and contentment that lingers for hours afterward. It’s perfect if you need that extra boost in the morning to get started, although the intensity of the high makes it less recommended for new smokers.

Chocolope is a cross between Chocolate Thai and Cannalope Haze for a rich, chocolatey flavor. This strain is easy to grow indoors and produces high yields that take only about two months to grow. If you grow outdoors, you can get a massive 35 ounces of buds per plant. The plants are tall, so you’ll need plenty of space.

This strain clears your head and puts you in a cheerful, contented mood that lasts for the rest of the day. It helps you focus and gets rid of all the pointless, rambling thoughts that have been crowding your mind lately. This strain has an added bonus of 20% THC.

Because it’s a pure sativa, Durban Poison can grow to be eight feet tall. The plants take about two months to start flowering and produce an average yield. This strain does well both indoors and outdoors, although it tends to be shorter when it’s grown inside.

#9 Harlequin

Harlequin Strain

Harlequin is made of 80% sativa but only 7% THC, so it doesn’t have the disorienting high that you can get from other strains. This strain makes you feel happy and cheerful, and can relieve pain and anxiety due to the high concentration of CBD. This is a great medicinal strain, although it does have some side effects like headaches and dizziness.

Harlequin is a blend of Swiss Sativa, Nepali Indica, Thia Sativa, and Colombian Gold sativas. This strain has a lot of benefits, but it’s also challenging to grow. The strain takes about nine weeks to flower and has an average yield. The plants are large and require a decent amount of space.

Royal Cookies strain
