Broad-leafed Cannabis indica INDICA plants in India, Nepal, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan are traditionally cultivated for the production of charas, a form of hashish. Pharmacologically, C. indica landraces tend to have a higher cannabidiol (CBD) content than C. sativa strains[4][5] Some commercially available indica strains have been selected for high levels of CBD, with some users reporting more of a “stoned” feeling and less of a “high” from C. indica when compared to C. sativa.NOTE: (the terms sativa and indica, used in this sense, are more appropriately termed”narrow-leaflet drug type and wide-leaflet drug type Cannabis indica (or Cannabis Sativa subsp. indica depending on whether one chooses to accept the monotypic or polytipic point of view in this debate), respectively.[6] The Cannabis indica high is often referred to as a “body buzz” and has beneficial properties such as pain relief in addition to being an effective treatment for insomnia and an anxiolytic, as opposed to sativa’s more common reports of a “spacey” and mental inebriation, and even, albeit rarely, comprising hallucinations.[7] Differences in the terpenoid content of the essential oil may account for some of these differences in effect.[8][9] Common indica strains for recreational or medicinal use include Kush and Northern Lights.

Indica is the exact opposite of Sativa
