15 Cannabis Sativa Strains That Can Help Cheer You Up Medical marijuana is known for its mood-improving abilities.

The majority of state and national governments in North America believe in the healing power of the cannabis plant.  Many cannabis industry analysts think mood-based products are the future of recreational and medical marijuana. Beyond just cannabinoids, many of the other terpenes in the cannabis plant can improve mood, like limomene, and pinene.

This means strains with a high concentration of these terpenes will be great for lifting your mood and cheering you up. I especially gravitate toward sativas, for their high-energy profile. Try one of these sativa strains recommended for raising moods by Leafly‘s massive cannabis database.
