The Benefits of Cannabis Indica: Relaxation and Pain Relief

Looking to relax? Indica is a form of cannabis that have a sedative effect on the user, helping them relax or fall asleep with ease. It’s also used to treat migraines, other symptoms of pain, as well as nausea and anxiety.

Patients who suffer from Multiple Sclerosis (MS), fibromyalgia, lupus, or insomnia benefit from using cannabis indica.

The History of Cannabis Indica

Cannabis indica was recorded as the second species on cannabis in 1785 by a man named Jean-Baptise Lamarck. He gave the cannabis its name after collecting the species in India.

This form of cannabis is smaller in height than santivas (between 2 to 4 feet tall), with wider leaves. It produces more cannabis as well, with a flowering time of six to eight weeks. It’s thick coat of resin allows it to grow in harsh climates, making it a hardy plant.

Cannabis indica can also be found in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. It provides less of a high and more of a relaxation effect that is highly beneficial for certain medical conditions and symptoms. Most users describe its effect as a “body buzz.”

The most common forms of cannabis indica are known best as Kush and Northern Lights. Throughout the centuries, it has been used for both medicinal and recreational purposes.
