Cannabis Indica is one of the most popular types of marijuana used by people worldwide. If you are new to cannabis, Indica is known for the ‘body high’ putting the user in a relaxed physical and mental state. Many people use it before bed, to meditate, or just relieve anxiety and relax.
Indica is also used by people that are looking to treat nausea, headaches, seizures, migraines, muscle spasms, and chronic pain. It produces high levels of THC and low levels of CBD, which on average gives the user a psychoactive experience when compared to cannabis sativa.
