With all this weed in cali, sure is a shortage of good long flowered sativas!
There is plenty of variety in most dispensaries of Indicas, sativas and hybrids.
It may seem there is an emphasis on Indicas simply because for most bonafide medical patients, indica effects work well. Having said that, plenty of sativa strains have great medicinal effects for pain, etc. I think heavy sativas may make some people anxious instead of relaxed
I been through all the clubs in sac and some of the bay clubs. might see some diesel or c99 or jack but no pure hazes, or landrace strains.
I grow both Sativa and Indicas in my garden.

Those clubs are ok. Better than surrounding areas. But, You want good stuff? Go 200 miles oPposite
marijuana" as the high simply aint there.
I remember the pure land race sativas in the 80's produced AMAZING highs. I wish these dispensaries up here would realize if they just grew the fun high weed, people would probably pay 4x the amount per gram. If I was in the cannabis growing community, I know how I would make my fortune. Grow only long flowing pure 100% land race tropical sativa's. The weed that produces the best high. People would be crawling over each other to get your store! It's kinda sad, but the cannabis market has created the need for heavy indicas and hybrids. Those that don't know better believe they are smoking good weed. It might be strong and potent...but it's not a fun high by any means.
you never know what you get in cali...i see the menus but i also notice several dispensaries changing around the names of my products
The reason you have a harder time finding the long flowering sativas than the indicas is because they are long flowering. From a growers standpoint it isn't worth the time to grow. You get less yield as well since those sativas are generally less dense than an indica. During the 80's and 90's as growing really went indoors people realized that those long flowering sativas were tough to grow indoors, while the indicas we're perfectly suited. Thus began the era of the hybrid. "Smokes like a sativa, grows like an indica" was the holy grail. (Still is for some people)
People think we have a lot of indicas right now because that's what people want. I think it's because the growers of the 80's and 90's conditioned the market to accept it by only growing indicas. And back then you didn't have the choice that you have today. Back then you bought whatever your dealer had. Now that we have outdoors in the mix again, we're seeing more and more of these sativas.
