Best Indica Strains

Cannabis fans know that their favorite plant is available in two different varieties: Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica.

The differences are not limited to physical appearance. The two can be quite different in their impacts when consumed. In general, cannabis from Indica plants yields a greater “body high” with additional bodily effects, but Sativa plants contain a “cerebral” or “heady” high with prominent mental effects.

Since Sativa and Indica strains are types of cannabis plants and are not separate, they can cross freely. So, some of the sought-after cannabis strains are a mix of Sativa and Indica genetics. Below is a compilation of a list of best Indica strains.

Girl Scout Cookie (20% Sativa, 80% Indica)

girl scout cookies strainSometimes called GSC for short, this strain has become a market mainstay, both on the streets and in the dispensaries. It was created from a crossing of OG Kush with Strawberry Diesel. At 19% THC, it isn’t one of the world’s strongest weed strains. However, it is more than strong enough to get the job done.

If you want something that will mellow you out without putting you to sleep, GSC might be a good choice for you. This weed is really heavy on the terpenes, which translates to a spicy, peppery kind of taste. It also has a hint of citrus which complements the total package nicely.

Most people report an upbeat and happy mentality while on this weed, which might explain why it is so popular. In many ways, this one is a typical Sativa strain, although it is tastier and stronger than most others.

Super Skunk (20% Sativa, 80% Indica Strain)

Super Skunk Strains

Super Skunk refers to a strain recognized for its great body high, strong “skunk” scent, and high performance both indoors and outdoors. It produces flowers regularly with a 20% THC content. Since it is a very dominant Indica weed, the effects of Super Skunk are typically Indica. It provides relaxation of the whole body, ideal for pain relief, reducing stress and fighting nausea, or simply creating a pleasant high.

Super Skunk is the most preferred among experienced growers and novice amateurs. It may be grown in various climates and offers high resistance to diseases. Super Skunk can produce up to 18 grams per square meter indoors, as outdoor plants yield 21 grams per plant.

Granddaddy Purple High Indica Strain (Pure Indica)

granddaddy purple strainYou just knew there was going to be a purple strain on this list, as it is known to be highly sought-after. There are many purple strains of weed out there, but this one has proven to be the most consistently popular. By crossing the Big Bud strain with some Purple Urkle, they may have created the king of the purple pot varieties. As purple weed goes, this is one of the best weed strains out there.

At a minimum of 20% THC (and a maximum of 27%), it’s not hard to see how that crown was won. This is a very cerebral weed, with most people reporting that it made them think very deeply. Thus, it’s a great choice for those contemplative evenings. This strain is also great for therapeutic purposes because of its relatively high level of CBD. Perhaps one of the best things about this weed is the fact that it tastes a little bit like grape flavoring. Thus, its color is appropriate in every way.
