What does "Sativa" mean?

Definition: Sativa refers to one species of the cannabis plant, the other commonly-known species being Indica cannabis. While recent research suggests that the distinction between these two species may not be as prevalent as once thought, the distinction is still commonly made in the industry because marijuana culture is so accustomed to it. Sativa plants are often taller than Indica plants, and the Sativa high is a heavier cerebral high than Indica.

Example usage for Sativa

"That plant is so tall! It must be a sativa."
