In 1785, French Naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck came across a new type of cannabis distinct from the already discovered sativa species.
He named it Cannabis indica. This species had adapted to its harsh growing environment in countries like Afghanistan, India, Turkey, and Morocco and developed unique characteristics distinguishing it from the previously known sativa.

Cannabis indica hails from the rocky, environmentally hostile Hindu Kush Mountains in Central Asia. Visually, indica plants are short (roughly 3-4 feet high) and densely branched with broad leaves.
The buds are compact and dense because their blossoms tend to stick closer to nodes along the stem when they flower. As a result, indica buds look full and feel firm when touched.
Indica has a shorter flowering period, making it a popular choice for many experienced growers; indoor growers can have more annual cycles when growing, and outdoor growers can confidently cultivate in climates where fall quickly turns to winter.
In general, indica-dominant strains produce a better body high and are better consumed (in legal territories) at night or the end of a long day. Seedsman has hundreds of different indica cannabis seeds for sale below. We offer discreet worldwide postage with multiple payment options.
