With dense foliage and full-figured leaves, indica plants are made to withstand much harsher growing environments. Indicas are quite short and stubby, but don’t let their lack-luster appearance fool you: these plants are the best resin producers.

Originally native to the kush mountain region, C. indica is made to withstand much colder and more turbulent conditions. As the plant adapted to a harsh mountainous climate, it also developed the ability to produce thick cannabinoid-dense resin to protect itself.

Indicas are often very potent, with naturally high levels of THC.

Smoking indica

If a sativa is like a strong cup of coffee, an indica is like a sleeping pill. Great for people who struggle to get to sleep, indicas produce very sedative effects. Indica smokers often feel sleepy, relaxed, and have a strong desire to eat.

Indicas also have a distinct skunky odor.

Growing indica

Indicas are the plant of choice for indoor growers. Short, fast, and sweet, these beauties are easy to grow and produce a crop quickly. Indicas will grow 3 to 6 feet tall. They have an early flowering time between 8 and 9 weeks.

Indicas are known to have a deep purple color to their stocks.
