100% Indica cannabis seeds for indoor and outdoor use
Mr. Hanf has created this category to make your search for 100% Indica cannabis seeds for indoor and outdoor use easier.
Many Indica strains originate from South Asia and the Indian subcontinent, but are also found in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal.

These strains are particularly suitable for indoor cultivation as they remain much more compact than pure Sativa. Indica strains produce strong plants with thick leaves and, depending on their origin, they can produce extremely resinous flower clusters. Indica strains are among the fastest growing and most prolific flowering varieties. Under optimal conditions, they can yield high crops with a strong physical and sedative effect.
Indica strains are well-known to any cannabis lover, not only because of their intense sedative effect but also because of their ability to couch-lock. Medical cannabis consumers particularly favor Indica strains because they have the greatest pain-relieving effect, deliver a higher CBD content, and are less psychedelic (anxiety-inducing, confusing). Due to their small stature and short flowering time, Indicas are highly valued in cooler regions. Another advantage of these strains is that they can be cultivated very well indoors. Compared to Sativa strains, they offer the desired advantage of producing more flowers in a shorter time.
The best characteristics of these strains are their compact, short form and short flowering time. Thanks to their excellent adaptation to the extreme conditions in India and Afghanistan, all outdoor growers in northern regions benefit from these strains.
Cannabis Indica: Origin and History
It is believed that all varieties of Cannabis Indica have the same origin. Cannabis Sativa, on the other hand, comes from different regions and thus has different origins.
The genetics of the Cannabis Indica genus first emerged in 2000 BC. It quickly spread to Persia, Egypt, and Asia. The original forms (landraces) can be found today in Lebanon, Morocco, Afghanistan, as well as in the valleys and mountains of Nepal. In Russia and China, wild variants of Cannabis Indica can be found, which have developed a short flowering phase due to the regional climatic conditions. They had to adapt to their climatic environment and have become more stable. Cannabis Indica acclimatizes faster than Cannabis Sativa because C. Sativa tends to hermaphrodite quickly if there are extreme weather conditions. Looking at the different characteristics of Cannabis Indica, one can see that all Indica varieties are related to each other.
Growers and researchers have found that Cannabis Indica has a short to medium height, with short internodes and strong branching and branching patterns. Internodes are the leafless sections of the stem between two nodes (Nodi = nodes; inter = between). Short, thick leaf fingers are characteristic of Indica strains. The genetics of Cannabis Indica exhibit a short flowering phase, as well as a high number of resin glands that cover the entire flower cluster. The effect is more calming on the body and mind. In general, Indicas show a calming and physical effect. The Cannabis Sativa species differs from Indian hemp in origin, genetics, history, and appearance. In addition, Sativa strains have a long, stretched appearance. Their internodes are longer than those of Cannabis Indica. Also, the flowering phase lasts a few weeks longer, so Sativas are only partially suitable for outdoor cultivation in our latitudes, as the ripening process can last well into autumn. Sativas can also grow several meters tall and Cannabis Sativa has a mentally and mood-enhancing, partly stimulating, psychedelic effect.
Genetics and Breeding
Hemp breeders as well as seed producers (Breeders) make use of the various characteristics of Cannabis Indica and its species. The Indica and Sativa species are often crossed to combine the best traits and achieve the best harvest results. In the best case, all the positive traits of both parents appear in the crossbreed. The so-called hybrids (mix breeds) can be bred to maintain the high or taste of Cannabis Sativa. On the other hand, many breeders place value on resinous flower clusters and excessive yields.
Cannabis Indica often passes on its best traits to the crossbreed, as its genetic traits, such as early maturity and high yield, often inherit in a purebred and dominant manner. Dominant means that the genes prevail over their fellow players. This is often reflected in the appearance of the plant.
Weaker genes are also inherited, but they remain hidden and do not appear in every phenotype (appearance). If none of the genes are dominant, the trait may include that of the mother plant or the father plant.
Each hemp plant has two genes for each trait. Or two different copies of a gene (heterozygous). One is from the male and one is from the female. One is from the male and one is from the female parent generation. Different versions of or a gene are called alleles. If genes are passed on in a purebred manner, it means that the alleles of the child generation (F1 generation) represent a certain trait. This is called homozygous (purebred).
It is difficult to predict which parent will prevail (dominant inheritance) or not appear in the crossbreeding of plants and is mainly based on experience. Cannabis Sativa likes to split and show different phenotypes. Experienced breeders are well-versed in the inheritance of genes and use them to better control the results of breeding.
In order to breed and cross plants, they should be purebred. Inbreeding is first performed to obtain plants that are purebred. The resulting stable parent plants are then backcrossed with female and male offspring plants. They are essentially propagated with their own children. The plants thus produced have a uniform growth pattern, and their lineage is known. These parent plants can now be propagated or crossed to obtain F1 hybrids. This offspring of the two parents leads to the F1 generation and thus originates from two different purebred plants. The plants produced in this way grow up to 25% faster and are larger than crossbreeds of non-purebred (heterozygous) plants.
This is called the heterosis effect. The further the gene pool (origin regions) of the parents is from each other, the higher the positive effect in breeding and cultivation. Whether it is indoor or outdoor cultivation.
When considering breeding with Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica, the effect is best achievable with purebred parent plants. The effect is only noticeable in the first generation.
