For this review, I’ll share my experience using Grasslands Sativa by Grasslands. They could have been more playful with their choice of name, right?
This strain is Sativa-dominant, which can contain up to 18.1% THC. But that’s not what I like the most about this strain. Rather, I like how it’s one of the most affordable products that I can recommend.

But, is the low price enough reason for you to try this? Let me share with you my experience in this Grasslands Sativa Strain review and see it for yourself.
There’s nothing to rave about its appearance. There’s no humidity shield, but they look fresh. Maybe, I was just lucky with my experience as I read some reviews saying that their buds were a bit dry.
As for the color pattern, everything was pretty standard. The buds were dark green with rusty orange hairs. The closer you look, the easier it is to notice. When placed under a light source, the trichomes are noticeable, although from afar, they’re not as prominent. The nugs were also frosty.
Like its appearance, the aroma is not something to highlight. It was a bit underwhelming under the nose. Given its price, however, I did not expect too much.
After taking off the lid, the smell reminds me of straw grass, which is exactly what it’s called. Aside from being grassy, it also has floral notes.
Looking at the terpenes, it has Alpha-pinene, which is mainly in eucalyptus oil and other aromatic plants. However, such did not translate to a desirable aroma in this strain.
Unfortunately, the flavor is as underwhelming as its aroma. It was bland, so there’s nothing much to write about. Again, this has something to do with price. If you want the best experience, then you should be ready to spend a bit more.
Staying true to its name, there’s a slight hint of dried grass. I was expecting it to taste more like a skunky herb, but that did not materialize.
The effects were not as bad as the factors earlier discussed, although it isn’t enough to make me want to try this strain again. With a THC of 18.1%, this Sativa-dominant strain delivers a clear cerebral high. I also noticed that my eyes were slightly tingling a few minutes after inhalation.
It is calming overall and not distracting, which makes it a good choice if you want to focus. It’s not one of those strains that will instantly send you off to bed.
As highlighted in this Grasslands Sativa Strain review, its price is its best asset. Too bad, there’s nothing else notable beyond the cost. Even so, it can be a great option if you’re a beginner looking for a clear high while still being able to do things instead of jetting to slumber.
Personally, I wasn’t happy with my experience. If you’ve tried it and you have the same sentiments, below are some alternatives you might want to consider next time:
- Jack Haze Strain: If you want another Sativa-dominant breed, this one should be on your radar. The THC ranges from 17 to 24%, promising to deliver a pleasurable smoking experience.
- Gelato Mint Strain: While it isn’t as cheap as Grasslands Sativa, it’s pretty affordable, especially considering its flavor, aroma, and effects.
