Sativas are known for their energetic, euphoric, creative and uplifting effects. They’re known for aiding depression, fatigue, nausea, and stress. The energetic effects are linked to a lack of certain sedative terpenes. When looking at terpene profiles, look for low or no amounts of sedative terpenes like myrcene, nerolidol, ocimene, linalool, and bisobolol. Sativas tend to have more complex profiles than indicas, with high amounts (+.3%) of energetic and uplifting terpenes like pinene, limonene, terpinolene, terpineol, and valencine.
