Indica

Indica is a term often used to describe cannabis strains and products with sedating, relaxing, and strong physical effects. In botanical terms, Indica cannabis plants are typically short in stature with broad leaves and shorter growing cycles than their Sativa counterparts. Indica strains are well-suited for growth in cooler climates due to their shorter flowering periods.

More about indica

In the weed world, both cannabis indica and cannabis Sativa are heavily associated with their perceived effects on the human body. According to the classic definition of it strains, which it turns out is overly simplistic, They tend to produce a strong physical high as opposed to a more cerebral high. For most marijuana consumers, the term indica evokes memories of haziness, couch lock, and deep relaxation.

The industry uses these pop-culture definitions to help it market cannabis strains and thousands of other cannabis products. But while the effects typically associated with indicas may have originated with the plant, there is no real correlation between the effects and the physical structure of today’s cannabis plants.

The terms Indica and Sativa are far more useful for cultivators than for consumers. In cultivation, the terms are commonly used to describe the plant’s morphology, or physical characteristics, and its growth cycle.

What are the effects of Indica strains?

While the Indica/Sativa taxonomy is efficient for cultivators, it doesn’t help consumers predict the effects of a given marijuana plant. Human intervention has dramatically changed the chemical makeup of cannabis. In the days of Linnaeus and Lamarck, the effects of C. indica and C. sativa plants probably aligned more closely with their physical characteristics. Today, a plant’s appearance gives away nothing about what kind of effect it will produce.

Within the cannabis community, The plants are often characterized as having sedative effects, which typically lead to an intense body high, while sativa strains are thought to be uplifting and produce more of a head high.

In an interview published in the journal Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, Dr. Ethan Russo, a psychopharmacology researcher and board-certified neurologist on the forefront of cannabinoid research, explained, “the sativa/indica distinction as commonly applied in the lay literature is total nonsense and an exercise in futility.” In reality, the effects of marijuana are based on the unique chemical profiles of each variety rather than a genetic lineage.

For example, a landrace cultivar with it lineage grown in a new environment could potentially produce a unique chemical profile that would cause uplifting effects.

Furthermore, cannabis effects have more to do with the makeup of a user’s individual endocannabinoid system than a plant’s genetic lineage. Individuals may have different experiences based on the way their endocannabinoid system reacts to consuming a given marijuana plant. One user may report an indica-like effect from a plant with indica lineage while another will report an uplifting sativa-like effect from the same plant.

If you go to your local dispensary today, you’ll probably be faced with products labeled either indica, sativa, or hybrid. The addition of hybrid strains to the cannabis lexicon is a sign that cannabis marketing is catching up to reality. All modern strains are technically hybrid strains.
