Indica strains of cannabis are renowned for their ability to create relaxing sensations and a powerful body high, as well as to relieve pain and stress. You might love to enjoy an indica strain in the evening, as they promote a comfortable, relaxing feel. If you’re growing your own, keep in mind that indica plants are known to be short and bushy.
