When smoking concentrates or flower, everyone has their own specific preference. Some people are looking for a creative, productive, functioning high while others are looking to melt into the couch. We understand all spectrums of flight, so we know just what to recommend, depending on what you’re wanting.
Looking for the strongest indica strain there is? Whether you’re looking for flower, wax, or other concentrates, we have some recommendations for you based on just how “high” you’re looking to get. But first, it’s best to know what to expect with different products and the amount of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) each type of product usually contains.
Different Products and THC Levels
From CBD-only products with 0% THC to heavy-punching cannabis with 36% THC to interstellar highs with 80% concentrates of THC in wax or shatter, you can choose the altitude of your “flight.”
Products which are lower in THC and high in CBD will result in a more relaxed, body feel with little-to-no psychoactive high. This is a great product for beginners, which comes in various forms, from creams to flower and concentrates to start. We recommend these products for treating body pain or anxiety and are looking to keep it chill, yet functionable.
The next stronger product is flower, which normally has between 8% to 36% (rising every day) of THC. This is the traditionalist’s go-to, as most dispensaries cure the bud to be in perfect form for bongs and pipes. You can use flower buds to combust away the blues of the day or celebrate with friends and even make peace with frenemies.
The strongest forms of cannabis are known as concentrates. This is the distilled form of cannabis that comes in the form of distillate wax, live resins, shatter, butter, and new offerings every day! The most common use of these concentrates is in vapes, dabs, or topping off flower bowls. You may also find CBD-only concentrates, although you will also find the strongest THC strains and one-hit wonders, including some of the strongest indicas out there, guaranteed to knock your socks off.
Another widely available product is edibles. These are not the same brownies that your fun aunt made. Edibles now come in chocolate bars, honey sticks, cookies, gummies, waffles, ice cream, soda pops, teas, coffees, and more. The dosage of these is controllable most of the time and first-time users should tread lightly.
Sativa vs Indica Strains
In the world of weed, that was a lot of information. Yet we still have not addressed the difference between indica and sativa! On top of the THC and CBD content, there is another criterion to consider. That is daylight smoking versus nighttime, bright versus mellow, and active versus chill.
Most will associate sativa with the bright, citrus, active spectrum. This high is usually characterized by fun psychoactive head highs, energy, spurts of creative intensity, and those deep, existential debates with your smartest friends. Some will run record times on their exercises, invent new paradigms, or chase their dreams with the stimulating nature of a sativa strain.
The opposite end of strains is the dank, earthy, chilled indica. The indica heavy strains are great for winding down and watching a movie, slowing the racing thoughts, preparing for a big meal, and making sure you sleep like a baby (when you think of indica, think, “in-da-couch”).
We cannot forget in the modern world of genetics, the hybrids. These strains are engineered to give you the best of both worlds. Hybrids can help you get high but still feel a body relaxation/chill. They are a great option for those who like the middle ground and do not feel like running ten miles or passing out. This is a good option if you must see people who you want to impress. Hybrid strains are also perfect for the functioning cannabis user.
Strongest Indica Strains
There are many indica strains to choose from and wherever you are you will find new and novel genetics. We will attempt to rank the top ten and name a winner, but keep in mind – wherever you choose to go will have great strains to pick from, regardless of their name. Before we list our recommendations of the strongest indica strain, knowing what you should look for in an indica is helpful.
What to Look for in a Strong Indica Strain
- Color - Some things to look for are the colors of the buds. Indicas are known for having darker colored purple or dark green buds. Some may have transparent or orange hairs with crystals.
- Smell - It is wise to smell the buds and the danker, dark fruit smells such as plum, grape, or black currant flavors are a good signal. Other notable scents are skunk, wet socks, cheese, and gasoline.
