Cannabis indica, an annual plant belonging to the Cannabaceae family, is native to the picturesque Hindu Kush mountains in Southern Asia. This remarkable plant is renowned for its abundant production of two vital compounds: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV). In fact, it boasts THC and THCV levels that can soar up to an impressive 53.7% of the total cannabinoids. This plant thrives in various regions, including China, India, Nepal, Thailand, Afghanistan, Pakistan, southern and western Africa, and is purposefully cultivated for a range of applications, most notably the production of hashish in India.

The exceptional concentrations of THC and THCV found in Cannabis indica offer an array of effects, including euphoria, making it highly sought after for both recreational and medicinal purposes. Its versatility is evidenced by its use in alternative medicine and as a subject of clinical research. Additionally, THCV has shown promise as a potential treatment platform for addressing life-threatening diseases.
