The cannabis plant includes three major types: indica, sativa, and hybrids. Indica, originating from the India and Pakistan, is famous for its pain-relieving, soothing, and sleep-enhancing properties. Indica strains have higher levels of CBD and lower levels of THC, which means stronger healing properties and less of an intoxicating effect.
Indica plants come in many strains, each with its unique properties. Below we’ve listed our top 10 favorites.
1. Indica Crystal Extreme (ICE)
ICE stands for Indica Crystal Extreme, after the white frost-like effect that settles on the leaves of this strain close to harvest time. ICE is a hybrid of Northern Lights and Afghan with an admixture of Skunk. It has a THC content of about 18%, with a spicy, earthy aroma, and gives a moderate high.
2. Granddaddy Purple
Granddaddy Purple is an immensely popular strain. This 70% indica strain has around 7% CBD and a THC level of 17-27%. It is renowned for its powerful euphoria-inducing, sleep-enhancing, pain-relieving, and relaxing properties.
This famous 95% Indica strain has a strong aroma and potent qualities. With THC levels between 16 and 26%, Northern Lights will smoothly usher you into a floating, utterly relaxed euphoria-like state. Northern Lights is an ideal evening strain with powerful insomnia-relieving and anxiety-reducing properties.
Girl Scout Cookies, or GSC, contains as much as 28% THC, which makes it one of the most popular potent strains among North American users.
