A common question that you have to encounter when you go to buy marijuana seeds for growing your own weed is whether you want indica-dominant seeds or sativa-dominant seeds. This can be quite confusing for you if you have not done your homework properly. After waiting through the entire cultivation process, when you get to smoke your own weed, you are sure to feel heavily disappointed if you don’t get the experience or effect that you are looking for. This can happen when you choose the wrong strain. Hence, it is imperative that you know the characteristics of the indica and sativa genetic types of marijuana seeds, so that you can make the right choice.

Origin & appearance

Indica-dominant seeds originated in Asia and they are mostly found in countries like India, Burma, Tibet, Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc. These seeds grow to give very thick, aromatic buds. You can groups of these thick buds clinging to the stems and leaves of the stout plants that indica seeds produce.

Sativa-dominant seeds originated in the equatorial geographies and are found in plenty in places like Thailand, Mexico, Jamaica and the like. The buds of the sativa seeds are quite tall and they don’t cluster around the stems. Instead, they grow along the branch length. The sativa plants are taller than indica plants. However, the buds are lighter and more colourful than the indica buds. If you love exotic appearances in your plant, you have to choose sativa seeds.

Flowering time

Indica seeds start flowering within 45 to 60 days of planting them. Sativa seeds, on the other hand, take at least 90 days to start flowering. So, if you want your plants to produce quick flowers that require minimum maintenance, indica seeds are the right choice for you. If you are willing to wait longer for the exotic colours and aroma of the flowers, sativa seeds are great for you.

Effect produced

This is an important factor that you have to think about while choosing one of these variants. Sativa seeds are rich in a chemical component known as THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).This component is known to produce feelings like euphoria, energy, creativity and cerebral activity. If you want to feel uncontrollably happy and energised after smoking the weeds that you have grown, you need to choose sativa. These seeds contain these psychoactive elements that give you the desired “high” effect. For this purpose, these seeds are great options if you are looking at your seeds producing recreational value only.

Indica seeds are rich in a chemical component known as CBD (Cannabinoid). These contain non-psychoactive elements that give your body the much needed relaxation, calmness, comfortable laziness and a sedative feeling. If you are looking for calmness and a sense of peace after smoking your weed, you need to choose Indica seeds. Due to their relaxing properties, they are used to treat problems like chronic pain, stress, anxiety, lack of appetite, insomnia and depression. Therefore, if you want your seeds to have medicinal properties, you have to choose the high CBD indica seeds, for best results.
