Cannabis Indica is the annual cannabis plant that has its roots in the Hindu Kush mountain range. So unlike their Sativa cousins, the Indica plant flourishes in a more temperate climate. Formerly known as Cannabis Sativa Forma Indica, Cannabis Indica was classified as a separate species in 1782. Its leaves are wider and they grow more bushy than the higher Sativa plant.

The flower of the Cannabis Indica plant is less uplifting. It has more of a relaxing, sedative effect.
