The sativa cannabis strain named Santa Maria stems from Brazilian lineage and is one of a few strains known to be used throughout the Amazon for spiritual ceremonies (thus its spiritual name). Its buds produce a scent and flavor reminiscent of fruit and flowers.
The genetics of Santa Maria are highly complex, but originate from crossing the sativa Mexican Haze and hybrid Silver Pearl.
THC levels of Santa Maria vary considerably, but its high has a reputation of immediately uplifting both the mood and energy of the consumer. It will relax both the body and the mind, creating a sense of euphoria. As the high transcends, focus will improve in some users along with creative inspiration. However, this strain has been known to be used to obtain spiritual growth, offering the consumer both introspection and deep-thought.
Ill side-effects include dizziness if consumed improperly, along with dry mouth and eyes.
It takes eight weeks for Santa Maria to fully flower, averaging only moderate yields.
