These sativa strains will be just what you need to keep your buzz and your energy levels up as we prepare for summer.

Strawberry Cough

A popular strain mostly for its euphoric effects and the sweet aroma of freshly picked strawberries, Strawberry Cough is a great summer sativa. Great for helping to keep social anxiety and stress levels down while leaving you feeling uplifted and energetic with a potent cerebral buzz. Though the origins of this strain are somewhat of a mystery this strain has become a favorite of many and a parent to other strains as well. 

Alice in Wonderland

While not pure sativa this strain has all the best qualities of a potent sativa strain. A euphoric cerebral buzz and an elevated sensory experience make this the perfect pairing for creative and outdoor activities, allowing you to expand your thoughts and appreciate your surroundings more. This is also a great strain for those suffering from anxiety as it provides an energetic and uplifting buzz, without the paranoia that sometimes comes along with a strong sativa.


If you’re looking for something that will provide you the energizing and euphoric buzz of a sativa without the head rush that can sometimes accompany it then a sativa dominant high CBD strain like Harlequin is perfect. This strain offers a 5:2 CBD:THC ratio, meaning the CBD will counteract any paranoia or overwhelming heady effects, while the THC is still able to relax your mind and body to reduce stress and anxiety.

Island Sweet Skunk

A combination of Big Skunk #1 and Sweet Pink Grapefruit, Island Sweet Skunk was created originally by Federation Seed Company in Canada. This strain is a potent sativa known for energizing effects with a tropical fruit like aroma and flavor. While still a strong strain it also has a surprisingly high CBD content, allowing you to feel your buzz, without fear of it going past enjoyable and into stressful paranoia.

Jack Herer

Jack Herer is a sativa dominant cannabis strain that is now famous for being a perfect example of all the best sativa effects, with the resin production of an indica strain thanks to its mixed genetics. This strain has won several High Times Cannabis Cup awards for best sativa strain and has been around and holding strong as a perfect blissful, clearheaded and relaxing buzz since its creation in the mid-90s.
