In recent years, the proliferation of cannabis strains has seen a remarkable rise in the level of variety now available to both recreational and medical cannabis consumers. However, while increased breeding has lead to a sharp increase in choice, it has also left some a little confused given the sheer breadth of variety now available. From feminized seeds to autoflowering seeds, sativa strains and indica strains, the choice available to cannabis consumers has never been greater.

Here at Marijuana Grow Shop, our primary objective is to help cannabis consumers gain a broader understanding of a plant that continues to fascinate, thousands of years after its discovery. 

As such, we offer this selection of Indica-dominant cannabis seeds. 

But what, exactly, are indica-dominant seeds? How do we grow them? And what are the benefits of growing this type of cannabis plant?

Typical Traits of an Indica-Dominant Cannabis Seed

Perhaps the most popular type of cannabis seeds you can find in seed banks today are indica dominant seeds that are typically made from a cross (hybrid) of both indica and sativa seeds but will lean towards the indica side both in regard to its growth patterns and in the effects it has on the consumer. In contrast, pure indica strains have no sativa characteristics, be it in growth, or effect.

Beyond their physiological and cerebral effects and benefits, indica-dominant plants also differ from sativa hybrid plants in terms of their appearance.

Native to Middle Eastern countries, a typically indica-dominant plant is short and stocky, with leaves that are broader and thicker. In contrast, a sativa-dominant plant tends to be taller, and thinner with leaves that are skinny and pointed in shape. Indeed, Indica-dominant strains are far shorter than sativa-dominant plants. They branch wider, with broader and darker green leaves compared to typical sativa plants. As such, this makes them more suitable for growing indoors.

Because of their small stature, indica-dominant cannabis strains do not produce as high a yield when compared to their sativa-dominant contemporaries. However, they typically generate far higher quantities of THC than sativa cannabis plants, but this is not reflected in CBD levels which are usually lower compared to sativa-dominant cannabis varieties.

While there are several variations between the two types of cannabis plants, perhaps the most important and relevant to cannabis consumers, is, of course, in their effects, both medical and recreational and how they affect things like energy levels and productivity. 

Famed for their ability to produce a relaxed, ´body stone´, indica cannabis strains are favoured by medical cannabis users for the treatment of physical pain and anxiety-related disorders. 

Typically, (although this is not always the case), indica-dominant strains are highly relaxing and can decrease energy levels, making them ideal for evening or late-night consumption following a hard day of work or activity.  

How to Grow Indica-Dominant Cannabis Seeds?

When growing cannabis, it is important to understand that sativa and indica plants grow in a different manner. This can be explained because of the difference in their roots of origin. 

Sativa-dominant seed types originate from hot, tropical regions of the globe while indica-dominant strains emerged in harsher, mountainous regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan. As a consequence, both plants demonstrate varying growth patterns.

As mentioned earlier, indica dominant plants are shorter and bushier than their sativa counterparts. Because of their high yielding capability, coupled with a short flowering period, indica-dominant strains are popular amongst growers, particularly given that sativa-dominant plants take much longer to mature and finish growing.

Given their Asian highland roots, and because of their short, sturdy and robust nature, indica-dominant strains are able to both grow, and thrive, even in harsh or inclement weather. As such, indica-dominant seeds offer a versatility that allows them to be grown, even in the hands of inexperienced growers or in climates where weather conditions can fluctuate. 

Some of the most popular and easy to grow Indica-dominant strains include familiar names like OG Kush, Northern Light, Girl Scout Cookies and White Widow. 

So, if you´re thinking to grow marijuana, and you want to grow indica-dominant cannabis seeds, here are some important tips to help you on your way.

What is the best indica-dominant strain?

If you are new to cannabis growing, Indica-dominant hybrid strains are ideal marijuana seeds for beginners because they are more forgiving than pure indica seeds. A heavily indica-dominant hybrid marijuana strain is less likely to rot and is also more resistant to pests and mould. 

Lighting Schedule

It is possible to control the size of your indica cannabis plants by making adjustments to the light schedule during the vegetative phase. If you feel the plants are getting too big for a grow room, simply change to a 12/12 lighting schedule, thereby forcing your plant into the flowering stage. 

Training

Because of their tendency to grow bushy and short, indica-dominant plants do not typically require training. If you do feel the need to train the plants, make sure to use Low-Stress Training techniques (LST) or try super cropping to ensure they achieve the shape of your desire.

Indica-Dominant Strains are more resistant to mould

Coming from dry and cooler environments where water is scarce, indica-dominant seeds produce highly resinous buds that can be vulnerable to mould. In order to prevent this, it is vital to ensure a good standard of airflow and ventilation. 

We also suggest that you should keep the humidity levels between 40% and 50% during the flowering period and below 40% in the final 14 days prior to harvesting.

Benefits of Growing Indica-Dominant Cannabis Seeds

Growing indica-dominant strains certainly offer some benefits to the cannabis grower in terms of convenience, speed and effects. 

As mentioned earlier, their short, squat shape makes them particularly suitable for indoor growing, smaller spaces, and grow boxes. In contrast, sativa-dominant plants can grow very tall, to as much as 3 or 4 metres, making them largely unsuitable for indoor cultivation.

Indica-dominant seeds will flower more rapidly compared to sativa strains because of their need to reproduce before the onset of Winter. Because of those, you can successfully grow indica-dominant strains in climates where Autumn quickly shifts to Winter. This short cycle can result in more harvests every year.

Famed for their ability to relax, indica-dominant strains are favoured by those who use medical marijuana and have difficulty sleeping or in falling asleep. They are also useful when used as a treatment for inflammation and muscle pain. In addition, the higher levels of THC present in indica-dominant strains make them a good choice for those who use medical marijuana for pain relief.

And while there are obvious benefits to growing all different types of cannabis strains, there can be no doubt that for those looking for an easier, and faster-growing experience, indica-dominant cannabis seeds are the stand-out choice. 

Here at Marijuana Grow Shop, we have a truly impressive seeds collection of indica dominant seeds including cannabis cup winner, Sour Diesel and the legends of OG Kush and White Widow. Our vast selection of high-quality seeds is available in regular cannabis seeds, autoflowering seeds and feminized seeds.
