Had a long day at work and looking to wind down? We feel you. We all have those days where you need to kick up your feet and roll up a joint to get some good rest.

If you’re a seasoned midnight toker, you’ll know that Indica strains have the potential to knock you out. They’re known for their sleepy and relaxing properties, making them a great choice for an after-work sesh.

We’re gonna break down some common questions about Indica, like what it is, how it works, and what to expect during an Indica high. Keep reading to find an Indica strain to try next time you’re at our cannabis shop Taber. 

What is an Indica Strain?

Traditionally, Indica’s have been referred to as the sleepy or ultra-relaxing strains of cannabis. Some popular Indica’s are Grand Daddy Purps, OG Kush, and Pink Kush.

Historically, the term Indica was used to differentiate where a cannabis plant came from. Indica strains originated in the Indian subcontinent and they were known for their shorter appearance, broader leaves, and potentially sedative properties. 

In recent times, most products on the market are hybrids—you'll see both “Indica-only” strains and "Indica-dominant" strains when buying at our cannabis shop in Taber. 

Does Indica Cause Anxiety?

Anything in excess can cause negative feelings. A good rule of thumb is not to do too much. Indica strains are usually known for their calming and relaxing effects; they are typically preferred for night-time use, after work, or to enjoy while doing an activity to zone out—like watching a movie. 

We can’t tell you how you will react when you try an Indica strain since we’re not medical professionals. But, we do know that everybody reacts to cannabis differently because everyone has a unique endocannabinoid system. 

Cannabis Terms: What Does It All Mean?

If you are wondering what all of this means, let’s unpack some key terms that might be useful for understanding. Our team at Harvest Bud Supply is here to help.

What Is a Cannabinoid?

Cannabinoids are special compounds found in the cannabis plant. THC and CBD are popular cannabinoids. Some cannabinoids can make us feel relaxed, while others might make us feel more energetic or less pain. 

What Is the Endocannabinoid System?

The endocannabinoid system is like a special team in our bodies that helps keep things balanced. It has receptors that can be activated by compounds found in cannabis, like THC and CBD. When these receptors are activated, they can help regulate things like pain, mood, and appetite to keep us feeling good.

What Is the Entourage Effect?

The way that cannabinoids work is called an entourage effect. In cannabis, it means that all the different compounds in the plant, like cannabinoids and terpenes, team up to create a more powerful and balanced effect when you use it. 

What Are Terpenes?

Terpenes are responsible for the flavour and smell in cannabis, and they can also be found in candy and spices! Lots of people refer to terpenes when they choose a strain. 

Is Indica a Happy High?

It depends! Most people experience happiness, hunger, and sleepiness, but cannabis affects everyone differently. We suggest playing around and doing some experimenting.
