The Cannabis genus of flowering plants is originally indigenous to central Asia, east Asia, and upper South Asia. The cannabis plant, also known as marijuana and sometimes called hemp, has been cultivated for thousands of years for a variety of uses including for its fibre and seed oil, as food, and as medicine and a recreational drug. Hemp usually refers to varieties of the cannabis plant that are cultivated for non-drug uses. These include varieties grown for their fibre, which have long stems and few branches, and varieties grown for hemp seeds, which can be eaten raw or used to extract hemp oil. Indica weed is among the varieties of the cannabis plant that are grown for their medicinal and recreational effects.
Indica weed comes from the Cannabis indica plant
Indica weed is a psychoactive drug from the Cannabis indica plant, part of the Cannabis genus of flowering plants. Used for medical or recreational purposes, the main psychoactive compound of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of about 500 known compounds in the plant, including more than 100 other cannabinoids.
While it’s common to see cannabis divided into indica, sativa, and hybrid types, botanists don’t currently agree on the number of species in the Cannabis genus. Many scientists label indica weed (Cannabis indica) as a separate species from sativa weed (Cannabis sativa), but the US Department of Agriculture lists indica in their Plants Database as a subspecies of sativa.
There are several methods for using indica weed for medical or recreational purposes. The most common ways are to smoke indica weed, vaporize it, or put it in food.
Some strains of cannabis have been selectively bred to produce high amounts THC. Most of those strains happen to be Cannabis indica. Curing indica weed flowers enhances the strength of THC. Extracts of indica weed, such as hash and other weed concentrates, contain even higher concentrations of THC.

What’s more, indica weed is generally more sedative, making it ideal for reducing stress, relieving full-body pain, and inducing asleep. Indica weed is also good for stimulating appetite.
