As a continuation from my last blog when I spoke on The Sativa Strain Family, I decided to continue to the other popular strain Family i.e. Indica. Indica plants are much shorter, usually below six feet, and have hefty deep green leaves.  Indica plants typically grow wider and shorter than Sativa plants which grow thin and tall-to tree level at times. Indica plants are more suited for indoor growing because of their short size growth. They originate from the Middle Eastern countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and the surrounding areas. Indica Strains develop bushy coats of resin as protection against the punitive climate and conditions. Unlike Sativas that can flower for up to 20 weeks Indica plants will usually only flower for about 8- 10 weeks. However Indicas have much higher yields than Sativas. Indica is the selection traditionally chosen to make hashish, in part because of the high volume of resin that it produces.

The high from a superior Indica Strain leaves you very relaxed. It’s a unique type of relaxation one gets folks .The more potent Indica strains will numb your body and put you to sleep with time. I don’t mean dying folks just bedtime sleep. A more frequent marijuana user like myself, will usually just get locked onto the couch for a few hours before falling asleep. Less frequent stoners will feel very sleepy after just a few hits. So this would not be a recommended strain to puff during work or whilst doing something that requires alertness.  It’s very normal that after smoking an Indica Strain, one will sit on the couch drowning right inside the couch. Indica is great for relaxation, pain, stress relief, and couchlock. So in general the high created from smoking Indica marijuana can be described as a very

strong physical body high that will usually make you sleepy and provides a deep relaxation feeling compared to a Sativa high, which is known to be more energetic and uplifting. A sleep period after smoking Indica is going to be a very good sleep. Indica dominant strains incline to have a tough sweet or sour odor to the flowers aka buds. The Indicas can also be a little fruity which you see a lot in mostly the Kush selections, as well as sport skunk flavors which are found in Indica hybrids. Nothing really beats an Indica Strain when it comes to facilitating for a very relaxing and strong body high that is helpful in treating common anxiety, pain of the body and sleeping disorders.

Other advantages of Indica strains include enabling muscles to relax, relieve body pain, relieves spasms and reducing seizures, sacks headaches and migraines and also helping with depression and anxiety.  The more popular Indica strains currently include Kush, Northern Lights and White Widow which is a major strain in Netherlands and Europe.

Due to the fact that Sativa and Indica buds have very diverse medicinal effects and benefits, some strains can be targeted to better treat specific illnesses. I personally used to have a lot of gout attacks which were very painful , but since I started smoking weed, I rarely have them and when I do ,a few hits makes the pain go away in just a matter of 5 minutes or less . Yes folks, am not bullshitting, at times in about 90 seconds the pain is gone. Am not trying to be a sales man for marijuana as I don’t sell, but if you have never smoked pot for pain, try it out and I am sure you will never pop another pill again. Sadly that’s all I have for now folks. Take care and stay high. Keep the joints burning  and the bongs loaded folk’s . Please also visit this site for more on Indica Strains .Cheers
