Cannabis indica flowers usually have extremely relaxing effects, sometimes anticipated by a short spurt of euphoria, especially in hybrid varieties. However, the sativa inflorescences typically stimulate a burst of intense laughter and energy and often increase the creative talents of those who hire them.
These two genetics have very different characteristics: both in terms of aromas and effect. Besides, they are also different in terms of the growth and development times of the plant.
Generally, the indica plants generate cannabis flowers (also called buds) that grow in clusters around the nodes of the branches and stem. These flowers are very close to each other. The cannabis sativa buds, on the other hand, tend to grow all along the branches and are larger than those of indica.

However, consider that most of the species on the market are hybrid. It is why seeds can have mixed characteristics and not 100% reflect this difference – even if they tend more to one genetics rather than another.
Furthermore, it must be considered that each strain has its unique characteristics. The Green Tiger seeds and the OBG Kush seeds are not the same plants. They do not have the same effects and taste although they both have a genetic 20% sativa and 80% indica (we rarely found varieties 100% indicates or 100% sativa).
Despite this fact, there are general characteristics that indica and sativa have in common. Let’s see which ones, starting with the origins of these two macro-categories.
Now that you know a few more details about the discovery of the types of cannabis. Let’s go deeper into the topic of the article: the difference between indica and sativa.
Indica – of Greek and Latin, loosely translated to “of India”, is an apt description of where Lamarck first discovered the plant. French naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck , the first European botanist credited to have classified this type of Cannabis plant in 1785, owing to the fact that he received his samples from India, dubbed the plant; Cannabis Indica in recognition of that fact.

Some of the most notable effects of this strain include a relaxed feeling, couch euphoria, happy, and sedative experiences. Many have described its terpene profile as earthy and woody.

Indica strain is ideal for all categories of farmers. Because of its sturdy, short structure, the plant is able to survive indoors or outdoors, producing broad dark-green leaves and very dense, full buds. The Indica strain is very resilient and can survive harsh conditions better than its rival the Sativa.
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.
Typically, Indica strains are characterised by their compact size and dense, heavy bud structure. The short intermodal distances between bud sites make them a
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.
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.
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.
