A potent sativa strain, Berkeley creates an uplifted, energetic, and talkative high due to its high levels of THC. It’s ideal for treating stress, depression, and fatigue, though anxiety and paranoia can be the unfortunate side effects. The pungent smell and citrusy sweet taste is popular among users and the incredibly short flowering time makes it a grower favorite. Berkeley is a hard-hitting strain, so those with anxiety disorders and newbies who don’t yet know their THC tolerance should probably look elsewhere.

Sativa strains contain psychoactive chemical compounds known as cannabinoids that are consumed for medicinal, recreational and spiritual purposes. Sativa strains are uplifting and cerebral, enhancing creativity and productivity. In traditional medicine sativa has been used as sedative, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, hallucinogenic and hypnotic agent.
