Where does indica come from?

The term indica was attributed to certain varieties of the cannabis plant during the 18th century. French naturalist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck classified the plant while researching specimens brought to him from India. Lamarck is credited with drawing the distinction between the two major varieties of cannabis: Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. He observed that the Cannabis indica plant grew shorter than its counterpart, but had wider leaves. The name indica, modern Latin for “of India,” references the plant’s nativity to India, though it’s widely grown elsewhere since Lamar’s identification of it there. The term gained greater currency in the later 20th century with the expansion of home and commercial cannabis production, propelled especially by a desire for greater variety of marijuana strains.

With the growing legalization of marijuana in the US, indica has entered popular culture as well. In a 2006 episode of the TV sitcom The Office, for instance, a character identifies a specific type of marijuana: “That is Northern Lights, Cannabis indica.” BuzzFeed, as another example, made a humorous personality quiz in 2015 to help a person determine if they were a sativa or indica person, a difference popularly debated among marijuana enthusiasts.
