My understanding is that the word Sativa is Latin and means "cultivated." See here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sativum
Since all cannabis consumed by people is cultivated and grown from seed, shouldn't all Cannabis be called Cannabis Sativa? And so isn't Cannabis Indica also Cannabis Sativa? If taking a cutting of a plant grown from seed and rooting it means that "clone" isn't considered to have been grown from seed then maybe those plants shouldn't be called Sativa, although this would still seem to qualify as cultivation. But either way I fail to see what bearing it has on phenotype or alkaloid profile. How has it come to mean having thin leaves and high THC content?
