ABOUT

Cannabis indica,(Buy Indica Strains Online-Indica Strains For Sale) formally known as Cannabis sativa forma indica,[citation needed] is an annual plant in the Cannabaceae family. A putative species of the genus Cannabis.

TAXONOMY

In 1785, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck published a description of a second species of Cannabis, which he named Cannabis indica. Lamarck based his description of the newly named species on plant specimens collected in India. Richard Evans Schultes described C. indica as relatively short, conical, and densely branched, whereas C. sativa was described as tall and laxly branched.Loran C. Anderson described C. indica plants as having short, broad leaflets whereas those of C. sativa were characterized as relatively long and narrow.Cannabis indica plants conforming to Schultes’s and Anderson’s descriptions may have originated from the Hindu Kush mountain range. Because of the often harsh and variable (extremely cold winters, and warm summers) climate of those parts, C. indica is well-suited for cultivation in temperate climates.

CULTIVATION

Broad-leafed Cannabis indica plants in India, Nepal, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan are traditionally cultivated for the production of charas, a form of hashish. Pharmacologically, C. indica landraces tend to have a higher THC content than C. sativa strains[4][5] Some commercially available indicastrains have been selected for high levels of THC, with some users reporting more of a “stoned” feeling and less of a “high” from C. indica when compared to C. sativa. (The terms sativa and indica, used in this sense, are more appropriately termed “narrow-leaflet” drug type and “wide-leaflet” drug type Cannabis indica (or Cannabis sativa subsp. indica depending on the monotypic or polytipic point of view), respectively.[6] The Cannabis indica high is often referred to as a “body buzz” and has beneficial properties such as pain relief in addition to being an effective treatment for insomnia and an anxiolytic, as opposed to sativa’s more common reports of a “spacey” and mental inebriation, and even, albeit rarely, comprising hallucinations.[7] Differences in the terpenoid content of the essential oil may account for some of these differences in effect.[8][9] Common indicastrains for recreational or medicinal use include Kush and Northern Lights.
