But, not all Indica is created equally! There are hundreds of strains to choose from, each with its own properties and benefits.

If you’re not sure which is best for you, don’t worry. This is your article! We’ll walk you through the best Indica strains on the market, and help you decide which one suits you best. Keep reading to learn more.

Indica vs Sativa – a Quick Primer

Indica and Sativa are the two primary weed strains, each with its own characteristics and uses.

Sativa is excellent for boosting creativity and focus, while Indica packs a sedative punch. So, most regular cannabis users enjoy both – but used at different times and for different reasons.

Not sure which is best for you?

Start by ordering a small number of flowers so you can test the effects at home. If you’re new to the world of marijuana use, try using Sativa during the day and Indica at night.

You’ll be experimenting with different dosage and hybrid strains before you know it!
