Here’s a look at the 10 most popular indica-dominant marijuana strains so far in 2017.
Although sativa strains have been all the rage in recent years, indica strains still (and will always) have their place in the cannabis world. Known for their intense pain relieving effects, indica strains are excellent for those wanting to relax and relieve some stress (or depression or anxiety); they’re also great for those wanting to get some sleep, or those who simply like a powerful high.
That said, below are the top 10 most popular indica marijuana strains so far this year, using data compiled by Leafly:
A genius mix of Big Bud and Purple Urkle, Granddaddy Purple is easily one of the best indicas on the market. The strain has a sweet, berry-like flavor, and dense, kiefy nuggets. The high is incredibly potent and relaxing.
Bubba Kush is known for its enjoyably strong and subduing effects, that result in almost instant relaxation. The strain has a pine-like flavor with tasty notes of chocolate and coffee. Bubba Kush owes much of its lineage to OG Kush, which itself is one of the most legendary marijuana strains around.
According to Leafly: Northern Lights stands among the most famous strains of all time, a pure indica cherished for its resinous buds, fast flowering, and resilience during growth. Itself a descendant of indigenous Afghani and Thai landrace strains, Northern Lights has given rise to famous hybrids like Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze.”
Although it’s been around for a while now, Blue Cheese is easily the newcomer on this list of legendary strains. Blue Cheese is a mix of Blueberry with U.K. Cheese. It has a sweet and savory taste and smell of berry and blue cheese, giving it one of the most unique flavors of any marijuana strain available.
Fans of Purple Kush will be less-than-surprised to see it on this list. The years-long mainstay is a cross between Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani ; the results are a powerful, long-lasting high that rushes throughout the head and body. Unless you don’t like indicas (or cannabis in general), it’s almost impossible to not fall in love with Purple Kush.
