I know what you mean. I like sativas better myself. I have a great Kali Mist pheno and I always chuckle when I smoke someone up for the first time who doesn't get the difference between indica and sativa highs. They start out talking about how it's decent weed but not as good as this weed or that weed, just making conversation, of course. Then a toke or two more than they should have taken, reality starts to set in. They start to spit and sputter. They lose their train of thought mid sentence. That's when school is in session.
Most poeople don't have access to good quality sativas, so they only really know good indicas. Once they tie into a good sativa though, they generaly change their tune.
