Human intervention has changed the cannabis plant a lot in the past few hundred years. Before modern breeders and technology, it may have been more accurate to say that the effects of indica plants were felt more in the body and less in the mind than their sativa counterparts. Modern breeding is usually aimed to increase the psychoactive effects of cannabis, so this is rarely the case any more. It’s very common to find indica strains from dispensaries that are more than “heady” enough for any seasoned smoker, like this Purple Candy (Indica). So what is an indica? When they’re growing, indica plants are shorter, wider and darker than sativa plants. The leaves are also broader with shorter digits (think maple leaf). Indicas generally have shorter grow cycles and better yields than sativa strains, so they’re a favourite for new growers.
