Indica cannabis, marijuana or weed plants are typically grown in the harsh, dry climates of the Middle East. Physically, the plants are short and bushy with broad, dark green leaves. The buds themselves tend to be a lot denser in Indica plants versus Sativa plants.
Indica effects tend to focus more on the body, which is why people say it causes a “body high.” You may have heard this referred to as “couch lock.”
Since Indica strains tend to be so relaxing, they’re best for nighttime use. Using them during the day can cause drowsiness at inappropriate times.
