Known to be sedating, powerful, and physically relaxing, Indica-dominant strains are among the most demanded cannabis options on the web. They are generated by the delicate crossing of Sativa and Indica plants with a slight dominance toward Indica side. Keep in mind, that pure Indicas have no Sativa genes at all.
Compared to Sativa, Indica-dominant strains are more likely to have higher levels of CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical that boosts body relaxations and relieves pains, spasms, nausea. e.g. It also boosts appetite and reduces stress. THC is a psychoactive component of cannabis plants. It is in charge of all the alterings in one’s perception that follow weed consumption. The majority of Indica-dominant strains lead to “body high” and “spacey-mind”, and are good for meditation, yoga practices, and any kind of spiritual activity.
Thanks to the above-mentioned effects, Indica-dominant strains are often prescribed to those patients suffering from physical pain and anxiety-disorders.
It is recommended to consume Indica-dominant strains before going to sleep. Such cannabis benefits its user with deep and long-lasting relaxation. The core side-effects of Indica strains are the increased anxiety and stress the inexperienced user might go through due to the overdose. Thus, if you are just starting with cannabis, it is better to choose those Indica-dominant strains with a lower level of THC.
