Generally speaking, Cannabis Indica strains will provide strong body effects, which are ideal for pain relief and relaxation. Due to the high CBD:THC ratio and the sleepy effect that may accompany the use of an Indica strain, the consumption of Indica cannabis is preferred for nighttime. Indica strains are often used as sleep aids. Indica strains that are higher in CBD don’t produce a psychoactive “high” and also have an anti-epileptic, anti-anxiety effect. Indica is the ideal medical marijuana strain for appetite stimulation, pain relief, muscle relaxation, and insomnia.
