Cannabis is one of the best products of nature. The use of these plant is rapidly increasing day by day. Actually, cannabis have mainly three species they are Indica, Sativa and Ruderails. Now, the growers of cannabis have developed lots and lots of variety some of them are Hybrid cannabis plant, Male cannabis plant, female cannabis plant. THC(Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD(Cannabidiol) are the two properties of cannabis.
History of Indica strains
Indica was originated from the continent of Asia. French, Naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, the first European botanist classified the type Indica in 1785. He received his first sample from India. So, he names the sample after the country India as Indica.
How to identify Indica plants?
Most commonly Indica cannabis strain plants are short in size with more leaves and buds which is the reason most of the people leaving in cold areas prefer to grow Indica, as it can also be grown easily inside the home.
The life cycle of Indica cannabis ids divided into two – Vegetation and Flowering. vegetation means growth of plant, this process occurs when the day are long and shirt nights, during these periods the Indica cannabis releases all its energy helping in increase the size of the strains. When the days are short and night are long this is the time of flowering in which give gives signal to the plant that the autumn is coming, then the flowering of cannabis starts.

Indica is used by more people to relax, pain, anxiety, for sleeping etc., Indica is mostly used for the medical purpose. It actually produces more “body high than mind high”.
Indica is one of the rich sources of CBD(Cannabidiol), THC(Tetrahydrocannabinol). Although Sativa cannabis provides more higher amount of THC as compared to Indica.
Some of the areas where Indica dominates Sativa are-

Cannabis sativa strain plants are tall plants which can reach up-to 10 feet with light shaded green leaves. Its leaves are made up of long, Narrow blades. Female Sativa strain plants seems more like Indica as it is more feathery and much longer buds. Sativa plant allows more air around and between the plants which results in healthier growth in the humid and tropical conditions where many sativa strains originated.

Sativa strains are used by most of the people to start a day because it makes you more creative, energetic, cerebral and highly inspiring.

What are the differences between Indica and Sativa?
BEST STRAIN INDICA OR SATIVA?
We cannot directly judge that which one of these is the best strain, as both are best in their own way or both have their own specialty. It really depends what you actually want? Now, most of the people are using cannabis as a medicine for treating Insomnia, depression, Relax, pain killer, Anxiety, sleeping, increase hunger, energy, creativity, euphoric and many others.
If you want to use cannabis as a Medicine then you should definitely try Indica as it contains less amount of THC(Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD(Cannabidiol) which will really help you to relax, treat Insomnia, depression, helps in sleeping etc.,
Sativa is actually a good strain to start your day with, as its energies, increases motivation and makes you creative. If you are an artist then definitely Sativa strain will be best for you.
Ruderalis strain is also one of the species of strains. It is actually found in the cooler parts of the world, say Russia, Hungary and Ukraine. But it does not contain higher amount of THC or CBD this is the reason most cultivators use Ruderalis to create Hybrid with Sativa or Indica strains.
Hybrid strains are the mixed strains or combination of Indica and Sativa. This can also be considered as one of the best type of strains as Hybrid gives you both relaxation of mind and body. Some of the best Hybrid strains are Blue dream, Jelly bean, Dutch Treat and Banana Kush.
Hybrid strains always remain Sativa dominant or Indica dominant. When it is said as sativa dominant then it means it has more of sativa in it then Indica.
