Santa Sativa is a beautiful marijuana plant noted for her dimensions, her easy-to-grow properties and her heavy yield. With a medium distance between nodes and a rather distinguished and sturdy look, she's very similar to other hybrids such as Moby Dick or White Siberian. That ample internodal spacing improves transpiration and leads to the development of Indica-looking wide leaves. Santa Sativa shows her Sativa might with an amazing vertical and horizontal growth, taking on a strong appearance that is far from the languid and lanky look of pure Sativa genetics. In fact, her sturdiness is such that, despite her height and her extraordinary yielding capacity, the use of stakes is not necessary during the flowering because she doesn’t need any help to hold the weight of her heavy bud clusters.
Dinafem Santa Sativa
One of the first Sativas of Dinafem
Santa Sativa has the honour of being one of the first Sativa-dominant marijuana seeds to become part of Dinafem Seeds' catalogue. Perhaps for that reason, this Haze-flavoured cannabis hybrid, derived from the cross of a Haze#1 and a Skunk x Northern Lights, is one of our breeders' favs. Her strength, sturdiness, amazing yielding capacity, vigorous growth and, of course, her potency also contribute to it. All those amazing features make her a must-have cannabis classic in the collection of any self-respecting Sativa-dominant hybrid lover.
Santa Sativa is a heavy-yielder of thick, elongated and super-resinous buds.
Aromas and flavours
Santa Sativa buds showcase a very intense and piercing Hazey aroma with hints of pine, wood, lemon, cedar and incense. Those nuances become more evident after the curing and, when tasting her, that mix acquires completely new fresh and aromatic floral hints.
Occasional cannabis users or those who aren’t used to consuming THC-rich strains should be cautious with this extremely potent hybrid. Her 70 % Sativa-dominance makes her effect incredibly euphoric and heady at first but turns super-physically-relaxing later on. Watch out.
One of the greatest assets of Santa Sativa is that, due to her vigour, she’s super easy to grow. The only thing that could complicate things a bit, especially if we’re growing indoors, is all the space she needs. We could say she has the same growing needs than Moby Dick. They both have to be provided with lots of space, light and, above all, fertilizers if we want their needs to be met. In exchange for that, these greedy plants will reward our generosity with plenty of potent nuggets. Therefore, don’t be tightfisted with this cannabis jewel, give her all the nutrients she needs and she’ll thank the efforts abundantly.
If you’re growing indoors, don’t forget that, as previously mentioned, Santa Sativa tends to stretch in excess trying to get as much light as possible. Should you want her to grow more moderately, we recommend limiting her vegetative phase to a maximum of three weeks. The good news is that her amazing growth always comes with an extreme vigour that makes it unnecessary to use stakes or other support methods during the flowering stage.
The only negative thing about Santa Sativa is her long flowering period. Outdoors, in dry, sunny, Mediterranean climates, the time to harvest arrives by late October/early November. Indoors, she’s generally rather fast ‘till the flowering kicks off, which is when she needs more time; some 70-80 days, to be more precise. Some growers even give her some extra days in order to improve the resin count.
