Sativa cannabis plants are usually taller in height than Indica plants. They have long and skinny leaves that are not as dark as Indica plants. The flowers on a sativa plant needs more time to mature to produce the yield needed for marijuana manufacturing. This is due to the Sativa plant producing far less chlorophyll than the Indica plant. As a result, yellow accessory pigments are made which protect the plant from excessive sunlight. By the time the plant reaches full maturity, it can extend up to twenty feet in length. When you look at the flowers on sativa strains, they are fluffy and less dense; which typically results in less yield.
