Cannabis has both medicinal and recreational benefits. Medicinally it is most famous for relieving pain, stress, and insomnia. It may also improve mood and appetite. Every strain has a unique cannabinoid and terpene profile, which leads to distinctive therapeutic value and experiential effects. For those looking for a recreational experience, look for strains with THC — the only known cannabinoid with psychotropic effects.
Seductive, Sleepy, and Persuasive
Indicas come from high elevations, evolving deep in the mountains of Asia. This landrace thrives in climates with short growing seasons and harsh environments. Alpine conditions evolved a small, densely packed strain known for its powerful therapeutic effects. While indica-dominant strains today offer a wide variety of experiences and medicinal benefits, it’s still most notably remembered for its soothing sleepy, in-da-couch effects.
What to Expect with an Indica
A pure indica is easy to identify based on appearance and aroma. The flowers are small, tightly wound, and densely packed, which was a way for the plant to protect the valuable oils from a cold climate. Just like the mountain forest they originated from, they tend to smell potently like earthy, musky pine trees. Experientially, if sativa strains tend to stimulate, Indica strains are the sleepy cousins. Many report more of a slow body high, rather than an energetic heady experience.
The Medicinal Value of Indicas
Indicas are beloved by patients for the powerful relief of chronic medical conditions. Scientifically speaking, the therapeutic value of any strain boils down the cannabinoid and terpene profile. But, indicas are still commonly associated with certain characteristics. Traditionally, indicas contain more CBD than THC, but thanks to creative breeding, modern indicas carry just about every cannabinoid profile you can imagine. Medicinally, indicas deliver strong relief of pain, with mild sedative effects. Which makes them perfect allies for nighttime aid of chronic conditions.
