Indica’s come deep from mountainous regions and harsh climates. They grow short and bushy as a protection against severe weather. It’s why indica buds are so densely packed to prevent loss of cannabinoids and terpenes from challenging weather conditions.
Because of the colder climates, indicas have much shorter flowering periods than sativas. As such are often used for indoor and commercial cultivation.
When you buy indica online, you can usually expect a sleepy, relaxing experience perfect for after work and before bed. If you have heard the old adage “Indica’s mean in-da-couch,” there is a reason for it.
