What is Indica and What is it Used for?
Have you heard of how some strains can have you “in-da-couch”? These strains are commonly referred to as Indica strains. These strains are known for their relaxing and sometimes even sedative effects.
In simple terms, Indica produces more of a body high whereas Sativa produces more of a cerebral or heady type of high. Indica is a great option for people who experience chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety. With Sativa, the effects of the strain are usually more of a productive high.
Sativa vs Indica: What’s the Difference?
In the late 1700s, all cannabis plants were classified as Cannabis Sativa by the Swedish Botanist and Taxonomist named Carl Linnaeus. It wasn’t until 1785 that another biologist, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, actually identified another species of cannabis in India. The cannabis plants in India (Indica) were dense, shorter, and had more psychoactive properties. It was then when the two species were separated and where we got Indica and Sativa.
The Sativa plants were taller and lankier, and they grew in more warm, humid, and balmy temperatures.
Typically now, Indica and Sativa are used to specify the shape and structure of the plant – rather than the specific chemical properties of the plant.
What are Common Misconceptions of Indica?
One of the most common misconceptions of Indica strains is that it is naturally higher in THC. This is not true. Although some Indica strains do contain high percentages of THC, most people confuse the sedative effects with high concentration. There are a lot of really mellow Indica strains to choose from, especially at Weedjar in our Broadview North and Oakwood Village locations.
What Terpenes are Found in Indica Strains?
Something to keep in mind when shopping for Indica in York is that terpenes do play a large part in the overall experience of a strain. One of the most common terpenes that are found in Indica strains is myrcene.
What is Myrcene?
Myrcene is one of the main terpenes found in most strains. It’s believed that strains with a higher myrcene terpene will create more of the sedative effects that are associated with Indica strains, while less myrcene can produce what we perceive as the Sativa effect.
Myrcene is found to be naturally occurring in mangoes, hops, lemongrass, and ylang ylang. This terpene has been reported to have analgesic, sedative, antidiabetic, antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory effects.
