With medical cannabis and indoor cultivation on the rise in the past few decades, Indica marijuana strains are more popular than ever before. This subspecies of cannabis is known for its sedating stone, short stature, and dense, frosty buds. Today, there is a wide variety of Indicas to choose from.
Landrace Indica strains originated in the Middle East and Asia, in semi-arid regions of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, and India. Some of the most popular Indica varieties are believed to have come from the Hindu Kush mountains. As a result, these hardy plants have adapted to endure drier and cooler conditions than tropical Sativa varieties.
Most Indica plants are short and stocky, producing dense buds that are incredibly frosty. The plants tend to flower within eight to ten weeks, while it may take more than 14 weeks for some Sativa strains to reach maturity. The plants’ small stature and quick flowering time have made them popular among indoor cultivators and commercial growers with limited space and time. They are also a popular breeding tool to create hybrids that lower the height and flowering time of Sativas.
Indicas are typically high in both THC and CBD. As a result, these cultivars are known to deliver relaxing and body-numbing effects. Popular strains such as Bubba Kush and Northern Lights are often used to ease pain, insomnia, and stress, making them widely popular among medical marijuana users.
