The term sativa is a derivative of the Latin botanical adjective sativum, meaning cultivated. Sativa is a species of cannabis that originates from South America, the Caribbean and Africa. Sativa plants have longer flowering cycles, fare better in warm climates with long seasons, and usually grow taller with light-green, narrow leaves. The slender sativa leaf can have as many as 13 fingers and the plant can naturally grow up to 12 feet tall in a season. Sativas take longer to mature than indica strains during the flowering stage, with flowering times of up to 100 days.
