Anecdotally, indica strains have been known to help with body pain , insomnia , migraines , headaches , anxiety or stress , reducing intraocular (eye) pain and inflammation , and relaxing sore muscles.
Indica has a shorter flowering period, which makes them a popular choice for many experienced growers; indoor growers can have more annual cycles when growing, and outdoor growers can confidently cultivate in climates where fall quickly turns to winter.
To protect itself from the harsh, turbulent conditions, indica developed the ability to produce resin; a sticky, organic substance produced by plants. The “resin” is very dense in cannabis which generally makes indica strains very potent. The buds are compact and extremely dense because their blossoms tend to stick closer to nodes along the stem when they flower. As a result, indica buds look full and feel firm when touched.
To this day, indica strains are associated with very sedating and relaxing effects.
Therapeutic benefits of Indica:
Indica strains are often recommended for night time use because many patients find them helpful for promoting sleep. Indica is often associated with what people believe is a “high”, when physical senses are heightened while listening to music, eating food or touching different textures.
In 1783, French Naturalist, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck came across a new type of cannabis that was distinct and different from the already discovered sativa species.
Large, bulky buds have a pale-green, sometimes purple color and offer the user tranquilizing effects – helping with muscle pain and melting away your stress.
Those seeking pure indica seeds should know that cross-breeding has introduced a significant level of variability in today’s strains. Cannabis is one of the world’s first agricultural crops, according toCarl Sagan, and recent growers have taken enormous liberties in the creation of hybrid strains. Everyone is different, and each strain will have unique effects.
The i49 Seed Bank has a range of indica seeds for sale. Unlike indica-dominant hybrids, our pure indica strains exhibit only the most well-known indica traits. These can be observed in the high you get when consuming the flower, with effects ranging from pain relief to sedation.
