The Origins of Indica
Indica strains are generally thought of as being much calmer and relaxing than when compared with sativa strains. Indica will have you chilling with friends in no time, whereas sativa will often wake your body up. Plus, they’re the perfect strains for relieving pesky aches and pains you may be experiencing.
The name indica originally referred to the geographical area (India) in which this marijuana plant was grown. Indica strains differ from sativa strains in key areas such as height and stature, intermodal length, leaf size and structure, bud size and density, flowering time, odour, smoke, and effects. Indica plants tend to grow shorter and bushier than the sativa plants and have wide, short leaves with short wide blades, whereas sativa strains have long leaves with thin long blades. The buds of indica strains tend to be wide, dense and bulk, while sativa strains are likely to be long, sausage-shaped flowers.
