The effect of indica plants tends to be heavier, with an all body and mind relaxation that borders on the sedative (which makes them a popular ‘night time’ choice). However this is not always the case and within the broad indica seeds category, each strain has its own unique characteristics.
Cannabis Indica was first classified by biologists in the 18th century, who identified the different morphology (appearance) of cannabis plants growing on the hillsides of Afghanistan, Pakistan and northern India. Indica seeds produce plants whose growth patterns are characterized by shorter, bushier growth and wider leaves.
Most indicas will achieve a height of around 1 meter in the grow room and are generally more easy to manage than sativa varieties. They tend to have a shorter flowering time than sativa cannabis plants, and so are often recommended for outdoor growers that are working in cooler, wetter Autumn conditions.
