These types of cannabis seed originate from countries like Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, and some parts of Eastern Europe. Mostly, pure indica genetics have strong Himalayan roots and the hippies introduced it to the western countries. Indica cannabis seeds are usually compact and short and they don’t grow beyond six feet.
The distance between the nodes and the intermodal is usually very short. The leaves are typically thick with broad leaflets. Indica seeds have a short flowering period, usually between 45 to 65 days. The plants mature and finish growing faster than Sativa strains. Indica strains are very popular among cannabis growers because of their higher yields and shorter flowering periods.
Their short stature makes them ideal for indoor growing or where there is limited space. Indica cannabis strains are sedative in nature, making them ideal for treating medical symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, muscle tremors and spasms, as well as chronic pain. Popular indica cannabis strains include Northern Light, Purple Kush, Granddaddy Purple, Ice Wreck, Aurora Indica, and Blue Mystic.
