Cannabis Indica flower, discovered by a distinguished biologist called Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, belongs to the family Cannabaceae. Cultivated for many other purposes, such as converting the plant fiber into cloth, Cannabis Indica is grown mainly for its medicinal and psychoactive properties. Cannabis Indica has large amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) along with significant levels of CBD and CBN. The higher concentrations of THC provide psychedelic effects making it a way to go for recreation and a euphoric feel. The cannabis strains are ideal for those seeking relaxation or a better night’s sleep or looking for relief for anxiety, pain, and muscle spasm.
Commonly known as marijuana, Cannabis Indica flower is native to Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, and Turkey. Cannabis Indica plants are short, compact, bushy, and fat with broad dark green thicker leaves and thick, firm stems. Indica plants have a short growth cycle with fast flowering, and hence they are well-suited for growth in colder climates. They have an intense, dense aroma that can be smelled from miles away. A high myrcene content combined with THC produces a highly physical and hypnotic, and relaxing effect. They get you to a “high’ and are quite soothing.

While THC, being the psychoactive compound, is responsible for the “high” or state of euphoria that gives a relaxing feel, CBD, the non-psychoactive component, may produce many physical benefits such as alleviating pain and nausea. Cannabinol (CBN) is used to easing off neurological conditions, including epilepsy, seizures, and uncontrollable muscle spasms. Someone who wants a relaxing effect coupled with euphoria can benefit from Indica strains. Due to its sedative effects, the best time to take Indica is at night time, helping the insomniacs catch up on sound sleep.
