Oh, Indica! One of the two main subspecies of cannabis, it’s universally adored by growers all around the globe – and for good reason! Whether you’re an experienced grower or just a casual smoker, there are so many benefits behind the genetic profile and chemical composition of this strain type. So, before we introduce the list of our top ten strongest Indicas, let’s clear the air on what exactly makes Indicas so great.
- Due to their origin, Indicas don’t mind getting a little chilly, so a wider number of regions is suitable for their outdoor cultivation.
- If you prefer keeping your plants close by and growing them at home, this is always a breeze with Indicas as well. After all, a compact and bushy plant is easier to find room for, as well as to take care of afterward.
- Even the strongest of Indicas remain short until the very last days of their cycle, yet they still manage to produce generous yields that are generally larger than those of Sativas.
- More often than not, Indica plants are thought of as less potent due to their lower THC content. Don’t be fooled – there are some incredibly heavy Indica strains out there!
- Indicas are typically richer in CBD, one of the cannabinoids that gives them their medicinal qualities, than Sativas. For the same reason, many see Indicas as night-time strains, as they’ll get you happily stoned, locked to the couch, or just sleepy and hungry.
Rumor has it that Indica strains can feature extreme levels of potency that even Sativa lovers will envy. If you’ve ever wondered how far the possibilities of this strain can go and what the strongest Indica strains are in the world, we’ve got you covered. Let’s dive into our list of the top ten strongest Indica strains!
