Strongest Sativa Strains For Focus and Energy

Sativas are loved for their cerebral, euphoric sensations that are usually felt mentally. Sativa strains can keep you alert, awake, energized, and productive; making them ideal daytime strains. Other popular uses for sativas are for stimulation of creativity. Some sativas are so good at keeping you focused and productive that it’s not uncommon for cannabis users to actually toke up with these strains before they go to work.

Sativas also encourage you to get more social, no matter what kind of activity you’re enjoying with friends. It’s a great strain to help motivate you even if you need to do some tedious work like house chores. Sativas stimulate the brain and will make you want to get more done out of your day. The only downside with sativas is that people who already suffer from tremendous anxiety should avoid this strain as it can cause your brain to go on over-drive; while for the rest of us it’s a good thing, it can have detrimental effects on people who already have anxiety.

Green Crack

Green Crack contains no crack at all! In fact this strain right here will give you laser-sharp focus and a long-lasting high, loved by many users especially those who have a difficult time staying concentrated on tasks throughout the day. Green Crack delivers an exceptional sense of clarity, amazing energy, and intense focus. This is the perfect daytime strain recommended for both novice and seasoned cannabis consumers.


My go-to favorite for staying active, Chocolope is a fiercely cerebral strain whose uplifting effects will keep motivation flying high. Its earthy flavor pairs perfectly with coffee, and it just so happens that the strain’s energizing effects complement each other nicely. Long touted as the perfect “wake-and-bake” strain, Chocolope will leave you feeling unencumbered and motivated to take that long hike or hit the gym.

Durban Poison

Durban Poison, a landrace strain, is one of the purest sativas in the world. You can expect all the typical effects of a sativa strain profile present in Durban Poison; from a strong heady high to its intense uplifting capabilities. Durban Poison is widely used for its ability to make users more productive and creative, no matter what fields they work in. Durban Poison is also used medicinally to treat fatigue (no surprise there), as well as pain, stress, and headaches.

Sour Diesel

Looking for a way through the pile of dishes and your fatigue is starting to show, you need an energy boost to see you through these simple but tiring chores. Sour Diesel, a Sativa dominant marijuana strain, offers you essential energy. The cannabis strain motivates your body by building a cerebral high after intake. It does not fog out your mind even with the high THC content.

However, caution is advisable for individuals willing to improve on the clarity of their decisions while taking sour diesel. High dosages of the strain can result in reduced brain focus, low clarity, and poor decision making. This is due to the high THC content in the marijuana strain accounting for 25%, and the low levels of CBD cannot counteract THC.

Amnesia Haze 

Amnesia Haze is a lemony sativa hailing from South Asian countries and Jamaica. This world-famous sativa is the recipient of two Cannabis Cup Awards, and is used to inspire creativity while delivering a clear-headed high ideal for daytime consumption or before work. Many users also report that Amnesia Haze makes them feel more introspective, so keep a journal around to take note of all the wonderful ideas this strain helps you conceptualize or realize. Some phenotypes have as much as 25% THC, so you can be sure that Amnesia Haze will send you into a thought-provoking but blissful high. Amnesia Haze is also used to treat stress, headaches, and pain.

Ghost Train Haze 

Ghost Train Haze is a potent sativa with a high THC content. This strain is a favorite among creative and artistic types, especially those who are looking for a little more inspiration with the help of cannabis. In some phenotypes, Ghost Train Haze has as much as 28% THC, so smoke with care especially if you aren’t used to handling high THC strains. Ghost Train Haze delivers an uplifting and speedy effect; think of it as the cannabis version of taking coffee. Ghost Train Haze may also give you the munchies, so be prepared with a snack after toking up. This strain is also used to treat stress, pain, depression, and fatigue.

Lemon Haze

The strain is one of the most popular types of marijuana around the world. With intense fruity flavors, anyone can sit and enjoy the amazing effects the cannabis strain brings forth. You can have an enjoyable but also a highly stimulating exercise or workout routine with this type of cannabis.
