The age old question: indica or sativa? In a cannabis dispensary or coffeeshop, indica strains tend to be more popular (don't get us wrong, we love sativas too!). Oftentimes, indicas are also believed to be more potent, but this isn't necessarily the case. However, the blend of terpenes, cannabinoids, and other compounds found in indica strains tends to induce more relaxing and physical effects as opposed to sativas, which are more energetic and cerebral.

Below, we have compiled a list of our top 10 favourite indica strains.

1. ICE

One of the most notable indica strains we carry is ICE. An acronym for Indica Crystal Extreme, it will seem as though your plants are covered in an icy frost once harvest rolls around. ICE matures its bountiful, sparkling buds in as little as 8 weeks of bloom, but many growers prefer to extend the phase to 10 weeks. ICE is a hybrid of Northern Lights, Afghan, and Skunk, a marriage that culminates in a spicy, earthy, and herbaceous aroma alongside a decadent high.
