Like two peas in a pod, these strains from the same genus have always been at a loggerhead. Many have questioned the variations in physical structure, effects and benefits of both strains. Although they share the same genetic source, the Sativa and the Indica are as different as two non-identical twins. Below are some of the ways both plants differ from each other:

To this day, indica strains are associated with very sedating and relaxing effects.
Anecdotally, indica strains have been known to help with body pain , insomnia , migraines , headaches , anxiety or stress , reducing intraocular (eye) pain and inflammation , and relaxing sore muscles.
In 1783, French Naturalist, Jean-Baptiste Lamarck came across a new type of cannabis that was distinct and different from the already discovered sativa species.
To protect itself from the harsh, turbulent conditions, indica developed the ability to produce resin; a sticky, organic substance produced by plants. The “resin” is very dense in cannabis which generally makes indica strains very potent. The buds are compact and extremely dense because their blossoms tend to stick closer to nodes along the stem when they flower. As a result, indica buds look full and feel firm when touched.
Ruderalis were first known as indica-dominant strains originating primarily out of Central Asian countries such as Afghanistan and Nepal. Their leaves are broader, and the plants are typically shorter and bushier than sativa strains. They tend to have a higher levels of THC and are suited to night time use, as they have a more subdued and sedative feeling.
The flowering period for indica strains is typically around eight weeks. Their cultivation conditions are easy to manage as well, both indoor and outdoor.
Therapeutic benefits of Indica:
Flowering times are another key point of difference between Indica and Sativa genetics. Where Sativa seeds generally need between 60 and 90 days of flowering, Indicas require much less, on average 45-60 days. It’s easy to see why they are a popular variety.
Medicinally the stereotypical ‘stone’ delivers a deeply relaxing body hit. If you’ve heard the phrase ‘couch lock’ used before it is in reference to the feeling of not being able to move thanks to the comforting sedative qualities of Indica. It is a high known amongst patients worldwide for their pain relieving qualities.
Indica marijuana seeds offer a shorter, faster and stockier plant and are renowned for their fragrant buds and relaxing body stones. The fastest of these strains can be ready in as little as 8 weeks making them a popular choice for both indoor and outdoor gardeners looking for a quick turnaround and to maximise returns.
Typically, Indica strains are characterised by their compact size and dense, heavy bud structure. The short intermodal distances between bud sites make them a
Most Indica varieties originate from central Asia and the Indian subcontinent, particularly the Hindu Kush mountain range of India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Here some of the world’s most renowned strains have been discovered, stabilised and developed to create some of the best indica seeds available. It’s also where the name for one the most popular strain ranges in this category originates; the legendary Kush genetics. MSNL breeders have worked with first generation clones of genetics first discovered in these indigenous areas to develop market leading stabilised indica marijuana seeds.
favourite amongst growers looking to maximise yields in a smaller grow space, with each strain responding excellently to training techniques such as Fimming and SCROG setups.
