Big Buddha Cheese is 2006’s High Times Cannabis Cup winner for Best Indica. The strain was created by Big Buddha Seeds as a cross between the original Skunk #1-derived Exodus Cheese and a well-known Afghan cultivar. The result is a fast-flowering plant that provides more significant buds than its predecessors.
Given this strain’s slight indica dominance (60% indica, 40% sativa), the effects are well-balanced, defined by uplifting and euphoric effects that gradually melt into a soothing couchlock. The unique aromas of Durban and OGK combine to create a flavor that is almost indescribable, but certainly enjoyable.
White Diesel is a indica-dominant strain with some of the very best flavors and aromas you can find. White Diesel is a powerhouse that has been selectively bred to be the bomb. The incredible high is nicely balanced, leaning more in the direction of a head-high, with just enough of a body stone to slow you down and possibly soothe any aches and pains. This is of course augmented by levels of THC between 20–22%.
Indica cannabis is a subspecies that is known for its short stature and fast flowering times. However, indica is probably better known for the “stoned” effect it induces. Indica plants naturally developed in subtropical climates and mountainous regions like the Hindu Kush, where temperatures are moderate and weather can be harsh.
Gorilla Glue is a multi-award-winning strain, and one of the luckiest accidents in cannabis history. Resulting from the accidental pollination of Sour Dubb by an intersex Chem Sis, Gorilla Glue has been called one of the most potent strains in recorded history. The strain produces lovely, pungent flowers that are hard to miss.
The wintery white sea of trichomes encapsulating the buds will reveal big, fruity flavors and a satisfyingly dank skunk aroma. White Diesel has a short flowering time of 8–9 weeks, and is suitable for indoor and outdoor growing.
Girl Scout Cookies is hands-down one of the most potent indica-dominant hybrids available. The strain was created by crossing two legendary cultivars—OG Kush from America’s West Coast, and Durban Poison from South Africa. This California-born concoction is still one of the most popular strains in the US and Canada, and has now taken Europe by storm.
The strain formerly known as Soma #5 is a hybrid created by blending Big Skunk Korean, Super Skunk, and the uber-famous Jack Herer. The result is a strain bursting with fruity aromas reminiscent of tropical mango. Somango is best suited for indoor cultivation. For ideal results, planting the seedlings in organic, nutrient-rich soil is recommended.
The resilience of indicas makes them suitable for indoor and outdoor cultivation, and plants are usually very easy to grow.
