Below, we have compiled a list of our top 10 favourite indica strains.
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.
Indica strains are typically the favourites among seasoned cannabis users. When people want some “loud” or “bomb” or “fire”, they’re usually talking about a nice, strong indica. Here are the best indica strains of 2020!
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.
And in the world of MAC crosses, breeder Capulator should have seeds for adult-use stores this year. Until then, Ethos touts their new MAC and Jack.
One Leafly reviewer of Apples and Bananas said: “These guys who made this particular strain should be the gods of weed.”

And for a spotless mind, this year Bodhi Seeds has:

“It’s a very complimentary cross that checks all the boxes for almost every grower!” said Ethos.
Kush Mints spawned its own minty lineage including LA Kush Cake (Wedding Cake x Kush Mints) and Pancakes (London Pound Cake #73 x Kush Mints #11).
At its best, this strain makes total sense, because Gelato crossed to Triangle Kush and Animal Mints makes total sense. They’re all awesome cultivars on their own. The combination is cakey, sweet and high-THC, with a fuel finish.
How do you like them apples?
A veritable California relic from the Before Times of 2016, Sherblato gains more national fans in 2021 as Connected Cannabis Co. expands into other states, bringing their stable of thoroughbred pot to the masses.
Apple Fritter from Northern California’s Lumpy’s Flowers dates to pre-2018 medical marijuana era California, but it’s slowly climbing to the top of the adult-use era. It shows how hot strains don’t just fall out of the sky. They debut standing on the shoulders of past genetics, win over fans, seed the culture, then break out into mass recognition.
And lots of seed breeders are also working the fruity Gushers line:
Let’s take a Gelato break, and celebrate the apple flavors on the rise in 2021.
