So right off the bat we are going to take a look at the visual differences in Cannabis Indica vs. Cannabis Sativa. Indica plants are usually shorter on average with broad, dark green leaves and dense flowers. The strains of these plants usually come from parts of Africa and parts of the Middle East like Morocco, Afghanistan and Tibet. The Indica plants usually mature fully in about six to eight weeks after flowering and the aromas come over the buds in pungent and deep aromas.
Vaping Cannabis Indica is more on the relaxing side and more body oriented than it’s counter part. Laid back movies and maybe even an afternoon nap are sure to follow an indulgence instead of what is on your calender.
Now lets talk about Cannabis Indica speaking exclusively with the medical properties in mind. Indica is good at relieving chronic muscle pain and even some mild to medium osteoarthritis and getting good, healthy rest after the pain relief. Since this is known as a benefit, some patients would rather take Cannabis Indica to relieve pain associated with multiple sclerosis, gout, sciatica and even cancer.
The reason Cannabis Indica strains are best when staying in for the night or once your done with your chores and responsibilities can sometimes be very potent, especially when taking in larger amounts. This is great for individual use for relaxation after a stressful day, or to lay down and get some restful sleep, so you can do the same thing again tomorrow!
The CBD or Cannabidiol, is a lot higher than THC or Delta-9 Tetrahydracannabinol, in concentration in Cannabis Indica. This is a striking difference to Cannabis Sativa where the CBD is almost non-existent and the THC is much more abundant. In layman’s terms, it totally affects different parts of the brain.
Cannabis Indica leaves you feeling:
- Relaxed and sedated
- Pain relieved
- Anxiety reduced
- Appetite stimulated
- Intra-Ocular pressure reduced
- Depression alleviated
