Cannabis Sativa: The Essential Guide to the World's Finest Marijuana Strains by S. T. Oner,Greg Green

Cannabis plants are classified into two main groups: Indica and Sativa. This book focuses on Cannabis Sativa, an especially tall and potent species of marijuana plant that true connoisseurs love not only for its smoke that induces a desire to create art and socialize with people, but also for the interesting challenges it presents to growers due to its size. No other strain guide has looked at Cannabis Sativa in such depth before, and the fan base established by the previous best-selling book, Cannabis Indica, is eagerly awaiting the release of this new title.Featuring one hundred strains of amazing Sativa-dominant genetics from one hundred of the world’s best marijuana breeders, this book is a must-have for pot enthusiasts, pot growers, and pot connoisseurs, new and old alike.Cannabis Sativa features one hundred incredible strains from one hundred different seed breeders—more than all other cannabis strain guides put together—and strains from such varied countries as Britain, Holland, Canada, Russia, Spain, Chile, Switzerland, Germany, France, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and throughout the USA. No other guide features this many emerging seed breeders, as well as established cannabis genetics companies. The Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica series of books are set to become the go-to books for connoisseurs and growers looking to expand their knowledge about the plant, and the genetics in their gardens.Features classic Sativa strains, such as Grapefruit, New York City Diesel, AK-47 and Santa Maria, as well as fascinating brand new, never-before-seen varieties from previously unknown seed breeders. This book also features multiple strain variations on Haze – the strain of choice for connoisseur breeders and smokers, and a favorite amongst medicinal users throughout the USA.Filled with hundreds of beautiful full-color images, this book is ideal for every grow room, dorm room, and living room. Each plant is discussed in detail, with accurate information on genetics and lineage so that readers can become experts on Cannabis Sativa strains—their aromas, flavors, THC content, medical potentials and growth patterns.Cannabis Sativa is a true resource for the Cannabis community, providing useful information to enthusiasts and invaluable insights to the seed-buying and pot smoking public. Unlike its competitor, The Big Book of Buds, which features a mere thirty companies that pay to be included and over twenty pages of advertisements, this book is a true reflection of the global marijuana seed breeding movement. Strains were selected based on their relevance to the current market and the strength of their genetics. There are no advertisements in the book and no one paid to be included. Chief editor, bestselling author S.T. Oner, carefully selected all strains based on merit, not advertising dollars. This grassroots philosophy has resulted in the previous release in this series, Cannabis Indica, gaining much attention and praise as well as consistent sales.With an introduction by Greg Green, the bestselling author of The Cannabis Grow Bible, focusing on the history and origins of the Cannabis Sativa plant, as well as its growth patterns, genetic tendencies, breeding potential and smokeability, this book is every true cannabis enthusiast’s dream.

As stated in a previous review the reviewer bought this book along with it's sibling book "Cannabis Indica, The Essential Guide to the Worlds Finest Marijuana Strains". These books are gems to behold and offer different genetics that are a bit more obscure than the typical mass produced strains.

The reader will be quite used to the format of the book if they have purchased any other "Bud Books" in the past. Each page has a description of the strain coupled with a fantastic photo on the opposite side. These photos are crystal clear and by crystal the reviewer means that the Trichomes seem to burst forward from the page!

The introduction contains some interesting material as far as the origin of the sativa genetics as well as their growth patterns. This description is quite complex and scientific including words such as "cellular meiosis" and other technical data. This may not appeal to all readers but the reviewer feels that this is important knowledge to grasp since the genetics of the plant are what makes it was it is. Full understanding of the background can help in the formation of new strains through breeding which may target more afflictions in the medical cannabis community. If the reader is not looking for this type of information there is no cause for alarm as the descriptions of the strains are pretty straight forward and very descriptive.

These descriptions are often quite involved and impart a very clear mental image of what to expect from color, scent, effect, and taste. THC content is also clearly displayed for the medical user to judge strength. This coupled with a general indoor and outdoor height can make any decisions that much easier. For example, a typical description of effect would be like this one taken from Sonoma Sunrise, "The high is luxuriously long lasting and relaxes the whole body, making it an excellent strain for medical users with physical pain or discomfort".

Taste and scent descriptions can be expected as follows, taken from Guanabana: "The taste, which gives the strain its name, is very fruity with a sour tang; imagine a mix of strawberry and pineapple with a hint of apple and you're almost there".

As stated previously, accurate height descriptions are given but there is also a notation for many of the strains as to how many days of flowering one can expect when the plant is mature enough to harvest it's medicine. This is typical of many "Bud Books" but what is refreshing is that many of these Sativa strains are surprisingly fast to reach maturity. In the case of the above Guanabana the flowering time is a simple 50 days.

It is important to remember that many of the Sativas in this book (and the Indicas in the sibling book) are actually hybrids that have dominating tendencies to the respective name of the book. There are land race genetics described as well, such as Waipi'o Hapa, a pure landrace Hawaiian strain but if a book of this level were to be printed using only pure strains it would be very thin indeed. Breeding of the plant over several generations has produced many strains of merit and using Indica genetics has toned down the size of some strains as well as dramatically reduced flowering times.

The reviewer feels it is important to repeat what was wrote in his Indica review and that is to expect to use a little communication and adventure when sourcing the strains from this book. There are several breeders from around the world and they are specializing in the few strains they have created. The reader may have to contact them directly after running their original email text through a free online translator such as Babylon. The reviewer feels this makes the whole process much more exciting than going to a "click and ship" online super seed bank offering the same genetics that everyone else has. This is the only time one can actually obtain medicine of an exotic nature!

Hopefully this review will help the reader in their decision to buy this book or not. It is not for a person without ambition or sense of wonder. One will feel like the early cannabis pioneer when trying to source these genetics, but thanks to the internet it will not actually involve traveling to the exotic locals, rather writing just a few emails!

Edit: Not every strain in the book takes work to obtain. The reader will find some common breeders as well. Sweet Seeds, Ace Seeds, and World Of Seeds are common and easily located on the web.

FLAVOR of the MONTH.
I do like it however just a starting point!

If you're a recreational or medicinal user you will likely enjoy the full-color photos of different phenotypes from a number of sativa or sativa-dominant hybrids/strains. It is a limited selection though. There are many land-races missing from a Sativa lover's perspective. As the modern industry/community goes, there are many popular hybrids listed. Great book series for a grower's library of descriptions/brief growing information. Good for very basic knowledge base/expectations, but as with anything to do with genetics, it's not a bottom line of any sort. Entertaining style.

Nice book and delivered on time.
DART-SKRIMER
great REFERENCE read with interesting facts and pics which show the healthy plants close up! Great background on how they have come about!
Skiletus
excellent pictures, good information, I can gladly recommend this book to anyone wanting to know about the strains listed in this edition.
Haralem
If you love marijuana this book is for you. Especially if you have always been intrigued by growing a pure Sativa. It can be very fun and also very challenging to grow.
Great book . Just don't buy it from Sassy Cat Books if you want it to arrive in decent condition.
