Top 10 Indica strains 2020

Cannabis indica strains are the epitome of blissful relaxation and the perfect body stone. They target fatigued muscles and deep seated aches to leave the body feeling healed and rejuvenated. They are best suited for evenings when all you want to do is lie down and relax. 

Indica plants are usually short and bushy and will have broad leaves with tapered ends. The nugs become rounded and dense as they mature and the branches may hang low due to the heavy weight. 

Indicas are a great choice for commercial cultivators. This is because they flower in a short time; on average around 8-9 weeks. They also give higher yields compared to sativas.

Earlier on it was believed that indicas had no bragging rights when it comes to the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) that they possess. This of course was based on the fact that indicas tend to focus more on creating a body stone. But as you will see below, several indica strains now have THC levels well exceeding 20%. 

Indicas are known to treat acute pain, decrease nausea, combat seizures, and reduce anxiety.

We have reviewed several indica hybrid strains and selected our top 10 based on the outstanding effects that these strains produce.
