Most Popular Sativa Live Resin Strains by Day

Cannabis often gets a bad rap as promoting “couch-lock” or encouraging laziness and lethargy. Sometimes, that’s exactly what the body needs, but it’s not true of all strains of cannabis. Strains can be divided into three main groups: sativa, indica, and hybrid (a mix of the two).  

Sativas, or hybrids, are often known to be excellent daytime puffs. They inspire creativity, align focus, and provide mental clarity where needed. When an energy-boosting cannabis strain is on hand, it’s amazing how much can get done, happily! 

While it’s inaccurate to say that a sativa can only be used during the day or that indica can only be used in the evening, it can be a helpful place to start when exploring cultivars. Additional factors like THC content and terpene profile can largely determine the effects of a particular strain and drive the overall experience. 

This blog explores some of the best live resin sativa strains for everyday use. 

What is Live Resin?

Live resin is a type of cannabis extract made with freshly cut cannabis flowers, as opposed to those that have been dried and cured. This method preserves the terpene content, making for a richly flavorful and aromatic experience. Live resin is preferred by cannabis connoisseurs and is available as a dabbable extract, edible, or in a vape cartridge. The primary goal of creating live resin is to capture the essence of the living plant’s aroma. Commonly, the flowers are flash frozen as soon as they are harvested and stored in a freezer until extraction.

Some brands like Bloom Brands does things a little bit differently. Instead of freezing the cut flowers, they extract the fresh, live buds within 24 hours of harvest. By doing so, the cannabinoids and terpenes are significantly less damaged and remain potent through the extraction process. This results in a live resin cartridge that is bursting with flavor and strong effects. 

Bloom’s proprietary formula uses a strain fingerprinting technique by breaking down strains at the molecular level and performing a chemical analysis of every profile. This ‘fingerprint’ is then used to recreate each strain profile, providing a terpene profile that is as close to the original strain as possible.

Best Live Resin Cartridges by Day

When choosing a live resin cartridge for the daytime, first consider experience level. Even some sativas can be particularly high in THC, and might not be for the daytime novice. When it comes to sativas, you can absolutely have too much of a good thing and end up on a fast track to anxiety and paranoia. Not fun for anyone. When used in moderation, bright and bubbly sativas can be an all-natural energy supplement. Let’s explore a few of our favorites. 

Guava

Guava is a strong sativa-dominant hybrid that smells and tastes true to its name. Intensely tropical and fruity flavors fill the senses, but a deeply gassy kush smoke comes through underneath. Guava is a Gelato phenotype and is celebrated as a perfect daytime smoke for its moderate high with a slight energetic boost. She is great for brunch or gatherings, as Guava is known to produce the giggles or inspire more talkativity. When looking for a mood boost, reach for a little Guava goodness to start the day.

Jet Fuel

Also known as G6, Jet Fuel has a long lineage of diesel strains. Aspen OG, High Country Diesel, SFV OG, and East Coast Sour Diesel have a heavy hand in the flavor and aroma in Jet Fuel. For lovers of that intensely gassy smoke, this is the strain for you. The name isn’t only a nod to the flavor, but to the high energy that Jet Fuel injects into the day. The uplifting energy boost is a smooth ride that gradually descends into a complete state of relaxation and bliss.

Green Crack

Green Crack has a bit of a history mystery, as only one parent, Skunk #1, is known. The other is an unknown indica, but Green Crack surely take after the Skunk #1 notoriety. Well known for providing sharp focus, alertness, and an increase in energy, Green Crack is a perfect daytime live resin. Despite its moniker, Green Crack doesn’t leave you strung out and manic, just boosted with happiness and enthusiasm for what’s to come. An excellent daytime toke for managing depression and helping one to enjoy the beauty of their surroundings.

Super Lemon Haze

Super Lemon Haze lives up to the hype of her parents — Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze. This is a sativa for taking care of business. Approach with caution for anyone who leans towards energetic, because Super Lemon Haze just might put you into overdrive. Her flavors are tart and zesty, with a touch of sweetness. The mood boosting effects are great for anyone looking for support with depression, anxiety, PTSD. Physiologically, Super Lemon Haze helps with ADD/ADHD, migraines, minor aches and pains, and nausea.

  • Strain Category: Sativa

Orange Creamsicle

Orange Crush and Juicy Fruit come together to create this citrus burst that is Orange Creamsicle. This sativa-leaning hybrid has a very loud citrus flavor and aroma. The flavor is well balanced with notes of creamy vanilla and even a hint of blueberry, likely due to its Blueberry grandparent genetics. The high is slow and steady, with subtle mental effects that don’t seem to interfere with complex or analytical tasks. While Orange Creamsicle makes for a lovely wake-and-bake, she also offers some strong medicinal benefits. The calming effects are chosen by those looking to reduce stress and moderate feelings of anxiety and depression.

  • Strain Category: Hybrid
  • Flavor Profile: Sweet, citrus, floral
  • Dominant Terpene: Myrcene
  • Potency: 88.93% THC
  • Mood: Happy, relaxing, uplifting

Clementine

Tangie and Lemon Skunk gave rise to this sweet sativa-leaning hybrid. Clementine buds smell sweet and citrusy until broken open when the gassy diesel comes through with a big aroma. As an extract, all of these fresh scents are present in live resin to produce a cloud of flavorful, lung-expanding smoke. Clementine makes for a fantastic daytime puff. The high comes on quickly but is mellower than some sativas. People report greater attention to detail and a clear focus that makes Clementine a perfect companion for productivity. The mood is uplifting, providing pleasant psychological effects, especially when looking to ease symptoms of depression, or for those who want to practice mindfulness.

  • Strain Category: Sativa
  • Flavor Profile: Citrus, pine, diesel
  • Dominant Terpene: Terpinolene
  • Potency: TBD
  • Mood: Energizing, happy, uplifting

Final Thoughts

Cannabis can be a productive tool for daily use when approached with common sense and intention. Yes, smoking a live resin cartridge might not be the best choice right before a big presentation at work. Or, it might be just the right thing. This depends on you, and how cannabis affects you, and to what degree. With patience and practice, it’s likely that you’ll find a perfect strain to accompany you on your daily activities and improve your quality of life.
