Our Mexican Sativa is to this day, one of the most appreciated Sensi Seeds strains, and many growers want it to grace their gardens every year! Known to be an excellent outdoor cannabis strain, it is not only resistant to pest and moulds, but is also fairly low-maintenance.

Upon reading our Mexican Sativa’s page, you will see that its parents explain partly the incredible ease with which it can be grown. While its original genetics cover perfectly the array of scents and flavours one expects for a strain bearing this name, Sensi Seeds added a touch of Durban, and of a fast-flowering Paskistani hash plant in order to reduce the flowering time. This makes for a fast, sturdy, resistant plant that will undoubtedly be one of the stunners of your outdoor grow space.

Mexican Sativa has three most common phenotypes, one indica-dominant phenotype, and two sativa-dominant ones. On the sativa side, one of the phenotypes shows a slower growth, and a shorter plant than with the other two patterns. Regardless, all of them will deliver generous yields, even indoors.

“The yield was very good, easily twice the average yield of any other strain I have grown indoors!” – by Dirk, sensiseeds.com [x]

But while Mexican Sativa thrives indoors in the hands of any caring gardener, its productivity is definitely impressive in open-air, even in challenging conditions.

“The last 5 years I have had different indoor and outdoor grows. Always sativa-dominant ones. Mexican Sativa is the cheapest but my favourite smoke. Grown outdoors in Scandinavia you should harvest just before the temperatures drop below 0°C.” – by robin padilla, sensiseeds.com [x]

 “Just like Sensi Seeds’ description of the strain. Very beginner friendly, easy to grow, and will produce very large buds come harvest. These ladies grow very large, so it would be recommended to tie them down to allow a non-Christmas tree like shape, and to allow side branching to fill out.” – by GrowIt, seedfinder.eu [x]

Many say that Mexican Sativa is a true representative of the country it is named after! Its taste is earthy, woody, with a distinct sandalwood aroma, and subtle hints of citrus, or fruits, depending on who you ask.

“The taste is fruity with many touches of citrus, a very pleasant trip free of sleepiness and [even] a great alertness, without headaches. Widely recommend it!” – by The one and only, sensiseeds.com [x]

The effect of Mexican Sativa is a cerebral high, mixed with smooth, unwinding body sensations. Curious beginners as well as experienced cannabis consumers will appreciate not only the vintage qualities of the strain, brought by its very special set of flavours, but also the surprisingly exhilarating high it provides!

 “This strain is an exceptionally great Sativa! I love playing soccer, and thanks to Mexican Sativa, audacity and creativity abound on the field!” – by giardinierepaolo, sensiseeds.com [x]

How many times was it back crossed to the original Mexican parent? Does the original Mexican parent still exist? Has there ever been further work done with this line by Sensiseeds.com ?
