Since these plants tend to flower faster, Indica Medical cannabis seeds are perfect for those who have limited space. That being said, they can thrive in both indoor and outdoor settings.
This type of cannabis seed tends to grow shorter and sturdier than other varieties. Indicas originate from the mountains of the middle east, so they are known to survive in harsher outdoor conditions and lower temperatures. They do not do as well in very humid and wet environments. They are best identified by their sweet aroma and strong distinct flavors.
Compared to Sativas, Indicas tend to have somewhat lower THC levels and higher CBD levels. Therefore, think of Indicas as the perfect night-time or evening strains.
