    Mods please move if this in the wrong spot.

    I have been smoking 22 years on and off. By nature I am a pretty depressed person. When I smoke it makes me really happy so I try to indulge. Well I live in the Midwest and weed to me was always just weed. I have had good and bad. Mids and Reggie's what they call it now. All that stuff had to have been Sativa.

    Finally in 2013 I was introduced to loud. I get to try the name brand stuff. Finally!! Up on Deck first with Blue dream. I was blown away. Laughed and enjoyed my time. Next up with Granddaddy Purple. Something was wrong though. I enjoyed it but something is just off. I smoked some Reggie and I'm Blown Away. Next up was OG Kush. Same thing I was like am I high? This went on for about a year. Finally I got blue dream again and I was blown away. I'm like finally I got super high. Got Grand Daddy Purple and was like am I even high? Smoke some Reggie and got super high. Eventually I just got used to it and started to like it. But it was still different.

    Finally I got some Sour Diesel. Then I got some Tangie and was so lifted. I was like how come some of the stuff is so much better than the other stuff. He was like wait what? He was like you just like sativa. I was like so you mean that's what's going on:lol::bang:. He was like all the reggie and Mids must be sativa around here. I was like it would have to have been like that for years because I've never felt like that before.:lol: it's good but different.

    But I think the I high of sativa is incredible. I feel like I can do anything. It's sometimes gives me paranoia, but I wouldn't trade sativa for the world. The colors and the sounds of music is just beautiful. I could read a book in an hour:D and still watch TV. Getting back to the beginning of my story it makes me not depressed and I can focus. Don't get me wrong I have learned to respect indica, but to me they are so different. So I always keep indica around too.

    I have no use for indicas. If I want to sleep then the last thing I want to do is smoke. Indicas will make me groggy but still wake up my head enough to make sleep impossible.

    I vape Sativas throughout the day, every day. They erase any residual fatigue and give me the energy I need to complete my chores with focussed and clear headed motivation.

    I do use indicas or indica dom in the evening sometimes and high CBDs for pain and nausea, but sativas are my mainstay.

    If I could only have one plant, it would be a landrace sativa every time. Fantastic stuff!

    I am not sure which ones are landrace I will have to look and see if I ever had one. I had a new sativa lastnight. A little paranoid for about 10 seconds but it was awesome. Not the paranoia, the high was awesome:lol: Also smiled and was happy as heck.

    This is nearly opposite of me, I usually have no use for sativas because I refuse to use weed early in the day multiple times (been there done that, not a fan). The last time I sessioned with a pure sativa it didn't feel right and it just made me stupid. So I ended up making an 8th of that stuff last me almost a year. And if I session with a sativa late in the day it could keep me from going to sleep that night when i want to b/c my brain is still wound up due to my lowish tolerance. Most of the bud I get are indicas & indica dominant hybrids which do me good, they don't cause couchlock but by the time I go to bed the indica-ness of the bud assists with getting me to sleep.

    See weed is so different to everybody. I think I'm the opposite of you. Sativa keeps me so wired that when I come down I'm tired. Indicas make me so relaxed that when I do come down I just watch movies all night or play Xbox One.

    Another cool thing about indicas. When I have anxiety attacks Granddaddy Purple shuts that shit down. I still prefer sativas though by Leaps and Bounds. I just like that extra ESP it seems to give me.

    Some of the original sativa landrace strains are: Durban Poison, Thai, Lambs Bread, Panama Red etc. I find that they give me the most clear headed high and the best energy.

    Yes, I think we are all looking for different effects based on our individual situations and need.

    I am retired and microdose during the day. I have a condition which results in nausea and extreme fatigue. Sativas make me feel well and magically provide enough physical energy to stay active throughout the day. I never feel that I need to wind down. I'm looking to wind up.

    I need to dig out my list i accumulated most by name or mention and nearly all bar one hybrid and the Indicas from Pakistan region are all Sativa it would be a good 8/10 on a scale. It must be to do with the night colds in the mountains or something but yea i think Columbian or Alcapuca Gold was the Hybrid.

    I will get the list but i got it all off google and strainhunters.

    I will have to find some of those. Thanks for the list. Sativas help my stomach problems a lot more also. I also stay higher longer. I guess they fit what I need.

    Nice thread, but could use some decorative bud-porn.:o

    Demonized sativas for many years and have only grown indica-ruderalis (autos) lately. It could be a matter of tolerance. If you dose in the morning and evening, sativas probably make sense in the morning. Enjoy the energy with coffee. Deciding which seeds to get for next season.

    Time of harvest is a big variable. Indicas harvested early have effects more like sativas. The deep body stone demands patient cultivation.

    This young lady is an indica (Narcotic Kush :luv:) harvested when her trichomes were clear. (She was badly stressed and failed to fully mature by the end of her life.)

    [​IMG]

    Her high is very uplifting.

    This is her companion in life and wax, another indica (La Diva). (She wasn't so stressed and matured normally. It was a crazy one-time set-up.)

    [​IMG]

    She's a sweetie. Tastes like rose petals. Gonna miss her.

    @Squiby, what does land-race mean? Are they true-breeding? Breeders frequently sell seeds that produce multiple phenos. Could even hybridize one of the strains you've mentioned with Afghani, Northern Lights or Skunk. Which is the most mellow?

    They are the original strains that evolved in each region and may be uncommon, but landrace and heirloom varieties still bloom around the world. Here are just a few from different regions around the world:

    Those indica plants are beautiful. Right now I just vaped Superman Og and some dank sativa together and I feel nicely stoned yet high too. I would love to try the strongest sativa available.

    Wow Sativas are everywhere. I have always wanted to try Durbin Poison. Cannot imagine not having Sativas in my life. I just love that rush of awareness and energy. Music flowing through your sole and mind.

    Durban Poison is one of my all time favorites. High in THCV means it is also an appetite suppressant, which I like most of the time. It has a very clear headed high energy high. A tiny bit will do you.

    After Durban Poison, anything Thai is my next favorite. Lighter than Durban but has a lovely clear headed pleasant do anything high.

    I am smoking a sativa right now. Everything is so vibrant and alive. That's how I like to feel. Had a great indica last night, but it still wasn't the buzz saw the sativa is.

    I really want to try those African strains. I would love to see the weed industry in Africa.

    Durban Poison is on my "must have list" for next trip to CO.
    Those African landrace strains have high THCV, an appetite suppressant. Do you find you don't get the munchies with Durban Poison? What's the flavor like? thanks

    Many landraces can't be clearly categorized as sativa or indica, it's more like variations of both that have the best adaptation to the local climate and soil. In some himalaya valleys you find sativa like at 5000ft, at the monasterys at 10000ft more indica and above some kind of dwarf ruderalis (under 10 inches) that was at about 13000ft
    - It's a pitty that there are so few landrace genetics avaiable and the seedbanks that had the good pure ones had to close eg Blue Hemp from Switzerland (mmh lebanese)
    A true thai plant can take up to 6 month for flowering! (you only do that once indoors) I don't hink you will find much comercial indoor sativa that took more than 14 weeks max.
    The so called Mexican Sativa by sensi seeds has 25% afghani for shorter flowering, the same with most durban poisons, it takes 4 month in afrika if its less its most likely a skunk hybrid
    In general i believe the effect depends more on the difference in the terpene profiles and harvesting time, than the 80/20 sativa/indica hybrid talks

    I use cannabis for medical use and sativa is a total must for me, I been driven towards Thai genetics as they seam to offer the most clear energetic high

    My favorite at the moment is C99 and soon will try out some hybrids from CBD crew and Dinafem that have 1/1 or 1/2 thc to cbd

    But weirdly I am going hybrid to try to find the most "non-high" for every day vaping because

    Don't wanna be baked 24/7 but still wanna perform good as I am so much more focused and driven on cannabis then my normal bipolar depressed self

    If you can get Thai 82 by Green Hornet Seeds, that is a pure endless growing sativa landrace, a bit weak but soft and clear high - but the 90 days flowering is a joke, more like 120.
    Somehow DJ Short should have named his Chocolate Thai after the region it originated, so i would know where to go to dig in the Blueberry roots...

    DB doesn't give me the munchies but J1 sure as hell did. Flavor is on the earthy side. Does not have either that typical piney or spiciness that a lot of cannabis has.

    If you've never had J1 before, a cross between Jack and Skunk, put it on there as will as my all time favorite African landrace.............Kilimanjaro. J1 is right up there though.

    I always microdose and I get zero munchies with Durban Poison along with a lovely clear headed high. The taste has an earthy, slightly anise flavoured hit.

    Durban Poison reminds me a lot of black licorice. I find those that like durban also have a nose for anise flavoring. I hate the stuff.

    I love it. In fact I throw a few anise seeds into my stash to intensify the flavour. Yummm :luv:
