Indica is a strain of cannabis, that is known for its main impact on the body. It has originated from India, Pakistan and Afghanistan and it naturally grows in subtropical areas of the world.
Indica plant is usually smaller, bushier and it has dark, wide leaves. It usually has a shape of a cone, that reminds of a Christmas tree. In nature, indicas tend to have medium THC content and higher (comparing to sativa) CBD content. But nowadays new strains are developed in greater focus on the THC content. This results in dramatically increased THC and CBD ratio, compared to the wild indicas.
Cannabis indica usually matures faster than cannabis sativa. When grown indoors, indica can finish its flowering period after 6 to 8 weeks, making it appealing for growers who want quicker and still amazing results. Indoors, strains can reach up to 1 meter and up to 2 meters when grown outdoors.
While they do yield less then sativas, indicas are more appealing to growers because they take up less space and produce good quality buds pretty quickly. With good care and clever crop management the yielding difference between sativa and indica can be quickly tied.
Indica is known for its impact on the body or as it is usually called - “body high“. This is usually felt as tiredness, maybe even sleepiness and relaxing feeling all through your body. Indica is also know to increase appetite or cause so called “munchies“ – this is a slang word that applies to sudden onset of hunger or a wish to snack on something.
Other commonly felt effects of indica are sedation, relaxation, pain relief, increase of dopamine, relaxation of muscles, reduce of nausea and many more. Therefore, it is commonly used by patients suffering with chronic pain, nausea, appetite loss, cancer, arthritis, muscle spasms, sleeping disorders, anxiety and many more.
As mentioned before, indicas are known for their “body high“. On the other hand, we have sativas, that are know for their uplifting “mind high“. So, what is the deal with hybrids?
Hybrid strains are bred from both – indica and sativa plants. Since this has been happening for a long time, it is almost impossible to find 100 % indica or 100 % sativa plants. Nowadays, when a strain is labelled as sativa or indica, it usually means that this strain has prevailed and is dominant, but there can still be traces of the other strain. To sum up, it all depends on its “parents“.
The same thing goes with effects of hybrids. If hybrid is 80 % indica and 20 % sativa, indicas effects will predominate, but you can still feel some of sativa effects, they will just not be as outstanding.
So, when it comes to hybrids, to understand their overall growth, development, and effects you should check out its parent strains.
In conclusion, indica plants are usually smaller and bushier in size, but they do give quick and generous yield. They give calming “body high“ and provide many medical benefits. At the end of the day, the choice of the strain is yours. When picking a strain, you should be cautious and take your THC tolerance in account.
