Top 5 Sativa-Dominant Strains for Indica Fans

There are many reasons to love indica strains. Unlike sativas, which may cause paranoia and anxiety, indica strains like Critical Kush, Afghani, or Northern Lights will relax your muscles, increase appetite, relieve chronic pain and stress, and bring restful sleep. However, some sativa-dominant strains can also provide you with similar effects.

Here is a list of best sativa-dominant strains that behave more like indica strains. However, their effect on you may be different as there are some factors you should also take into account. The influence of cannabis strains may vary depending on your physical and mental state, method of consuming and dose, as well as the strain's growing conditions. Though the following strains will not make you couch-locked like pure indicas, they can definitely bring you peace and relaxation during the daytime.


Besides its great fruity smell, Strawberry will surprise you with a relaxing effect without any downsides of THC overdose, like paranoia or anxiety. After smoking this weed, you will feel energized and uplifted, while your muscles become relaxed. This sativa-dominant strain is popular among indica patients who like it because of its ability to relieve both chronic pain and stress conditions.

Great White Shark

Great White Shark is perfect to relieve your pain and resolve your problems with sleep thanks to its parent Super Skunk. Though after a few puffs, you will feel wakeful and euphoric, you may become couch-locked in an hour. This sativa strain needs some time to relax you, and it may not knock you into sleep, but the Shark is a great choice if you need a sativa with a relaxing effect.

Jack Herer

Jack Herer is a sativa strain with a high potency that can provide you with both relaxation and energy depending on the time when you consume it. In the morning, this strain will quickly pick you up with its sharp pine flavor, and in the evening, the Jack Herer strain will leave you with a relaxing aftereffect. Thus, this cannabis is best suited for reading a book or watching a movie, as well as an intimate evening with your partner or a sound sleep at night.


Amnesia is a great choice of weed for your morning awakening, as it can saturate you with energy and optimism. However, high doses of this strain can affect you like the strongest indica strains by making you fall asleep on the spot. Indica lovers prefer Amnesia when they want to relax their body while staying mentally present. Moreover, cannabis patients like this weed for its high THC and low CBD content that allows treating anxiety disorders, pain, and even asthma attacks.

Silver Haze

Silver Haze is a sativa-dominant hybrid bred by crossing Northern Lights and Haze. Thanks to this genetic cross, our cannabis users find this hybrid “a great combination of sativa's euphoria in mind and indica's body buzz.” Choosing Silver Haze, you will surely boost your energy and creativity necessary for daily work, while your body will manage your chronic pain or muscle tension. Medical physicians also recommend this strain for treating the symptoms of depression, insomnia, and headaches.
