Indica weed is commonly considered as a nighttime strain because of its relaxing, sedating, euphoric, and sleep inducing qualities (aka couch lock). This strain is typically CBD dominant making it far more medicinally useful as compared to the sativa plant which tends to have higher concentrations of THC.
These plants are characterized by their short height, bushy appearance and dense buds. Most cannabis plants that grow naturally are actually indica or ruderalis — it’s a strain that has adapted to the harsh environments of its origin. That’s why it grows faster, and yields more than its skinnier cousin.
Medical marijuana patients lean towards Indica for it’s sleep and hunger inducing properties.
If cannabis sativa is the marijuana of choice for social settings, parties and creativity, indica is basically the opposite — it’s what you want for a long night of binge watching movies, playing video games, and pigging out covered in cheeto dust
This strain is known for its body-numbing relaxed high that makes you feel euphoric, sedated and medicated. It’s the kind of pot you’d want to smoke right before bed, or after work when you’re winding down.
This strain of cannabis is sure to give you the munchies; so be prepared for an elevated appetite.
If your work consists of complex tasks that require you to stay sharp and focused, we’d recommend against smoking indica right before work or during work as it might make you lazy. For that, try sativa instead.
As a consumer of marijuana, it’s very unlikely that you haven’t come across these two terms. Alongside “hybrid” and “ruderalis,” Indica and Sativa are often marketed as strains of Cannabis.
Many people believe that Indica and Sativa just might be the same thing. But, this isn’t entirely true. Why?
Well, for starters, as we’ve established earlier, Indica is more of a relaxing strain of weed. It doesn’t get you hyped up for the next big party. It doesn’t make you feel like you can conquer the Himalayas, and it isn’t to pump you full of energy. Instead, it helps you lay back and calm your nerves after a long day. Sativa, on the other hand, is widely known to have the direct opposite effect. It energizes and fuels you for work.
Besides the effects they have on your body, you can also differentiate Indica and Sativa by their physical appearance. Botanists do it all the time. Generally, Indica cannabis plants aren’t as tall as Sativa plants. In addition, Indica has a wooden stalk instead of a fibrous one like the Sativa plant.
Now, we aren’t quite sure why this is so. Some researchers think that the physical differences are there due to humans breeding different varieties together. Others believe that they are there because of geographic isolation and evolution.
Medical marijuana users prefer indica strains because of their body numbing and relaxing properties. This makes it a common treatment for chronic pain, muscle spasms, and insomnia. In small doses it can be helpful in dealing with stress, anxiety and depression.
The main reason why this strain is more preferred for medical use than sativa is that it’s CBD dominant. CBD is also a psychoactive compound like THC — it has the same pain numbing qualities but it doesn’t make you feel high. This has a lot to do with the cannabinoid receptors in the human brain and the chemical composition of these two compounds.
Cottonmouth and dry red eyes are almost certain when smoking the cannabis plant. Good news is that these effects are trivial at best and short lived.
If you take too much however, you can experience nausea, dizziness and headaches.
Just be sure to be responsible when taking cannabis, especially if you plan to take it with other drugs or alcohol. Don’t feel pressured to take another hit just because a doob or a bong is being passed around; examine how you feel, if you’re already pretty stoned, it’s okay to skip a few rounds.
Pure indica strains are the gold standard when it comes to pain and anxiety management.
There aren’t many pure 100% indica strains on the market these days, however you can still find some if you look in the right places.
Here is a list of some of the pure cannabis indica strains commonly found available in Canada:
Not fully 100% indica, but these cannabis strains are at least 75% dominated by indica genetics:
Indica weed can either be smoked, vaporized or extracted into edibles.
If you prefer smoking, there is nothing quite like the good old joint. If joints aren’t your thing and you prefer something quicker to prepare and put away, consider a glass/wooden pipe or a bong.
Vaporizing is a better alternative to smoking; you still get the “smoking” experience but without the combustion process. The process of heating vs burning ensures that no toxic chemicals are released while vaping the herb.
The cleanest way to consume pot without having to smoke or vape it is to extract its THC into food and consume it orally. You can either buy readymade edibles/oils or make something called “canna butter” at home and use it with pretty much any recipe that requires butter.
If you are looking for cannabis for daytime use, sativa strains are your best option. If you want the best of both worlds, we recommend trying hybrid cannabis strains as they balance the qualities of both indica and sativa strains.
Other alternatives would be cannabis concentrates such as shatter, budder, live resin, cannabis oil, and hash. Each has their own unique characteristics and each are great in their own right! For more information, visit our cannabis concentrates page!
Another alternative is extracting the THC and CBD, and infusing it with food to make weed edibles to eat. The biggest advantage of this method is that you don’t need to smoke anything and can keep your lungs healthy.
