What is Cannabis Indica?
If you’re new to cannabis, you might be wondering what the term Indica even means. We get it — cannabis terminology can be confusing, especially at first.
Simply put, Cannabis Indica refers to strains that impart relaxing effects. Indica-dominant plants are usually short, dense, and super resinous. They’re usually rich in terpenes, like limonene and myrcene, that impart additional relaxation.
And that makes Cannabis Indica strains superb for those with anxiety, PTSD, hyperactivity, and more. If you need to chill out, for any reason…consider an Indican-dominant strain. Here’s a more comprehensive look at the many health benefits of Indicas:
- Pain relief
- Deeper sleep
- Nausea relief
- Deep relaxation
- Peace & tranquility
- Reduced anxiety
- Reduced depression
- Reduced PTSD
- Reduced ADHD
- Reduced insomnia
- Increased appetite
- Increased mobility
Indica vs. Sativa
Perhaps you’re familiar with the Indica vs. Sativa debate and wondering what strain is best for you.
Well…it depends. Cannabis Sativa is virtually the opposite of Cannabis Indica, in more ways than one. Sativa’s tend to be stimulating and energizing, and they grow tall and thin, which is almost how they’ll make you feel after you use them!
Interestingly enough, the term Cannabis Sativa originally referred to high CBD, low-THC hemp. Botanically speaking that designation is accurate, but it’s far less practical than the Indica vs. Sativa paradigm we’ve come to today.
The meaning of Cannabis Indica has likewise evolved over time. Originally used to refer to any of the psychoactive varieties of cannabis coming out of India (i.e., anything in the Kush family), Cannabis Indica now refers to virtually any strain with kush-like qualities.
Grade AAA and AAAA+ only!
What makes our Indica’s so good?
Well, mother nature does most of the work. But we also make every effort to ensure only the best bud out there makes the cut and gets offered online. Translation: we offer grade AAA, AAAA, and AAAA+ strains only. And while we do have some cannabis trim options for all you extraction artists out there, it’s premium trim made from sugar leaves just as rich in THC as everything else.
Our top-grade stuff is so good, in fact, that it may not be for everyone. AAAA+ buds are super resinous and loaded with THC. The perfectly sculpted bud development, unique colour hues, and delicious smells might draw you in…just make sure you can handle the THC first.
Top Indica strains
As mentioned earlier, many of the best Indica strains out there hail from India’s Kush family.
Most. But not all. Canadian master growers have done the hard work and created new & novel Indica strains that are just as relaxing as their Kush-esque counterparts. We’ve tried to keep our store stocked with a perfect blend of old and new — 28 strains in total. Below are just a few of the most popular ones.
Rockstar Kush | This Indica-dominant hybrid is renowned for the immersive relaxation it creates. Coming in at 70% Indica 30% Sativa, Rockstar Kush is highly sedating and highly inspiring at the very same time. If you find yourself laughing hysterically after a smoke session, don’t be surprised!
This strain’s relaxing qualities also mean it’s great for nighttime use. Have you been struggling with sleeplessness, insomnia, or even sleep apnea? Users report that Rockstar Kush has helped them overcome the most stubborn sleep problems.
Girl Scout Cookies | Girl Scout Cookies is one of the most popular strains of cannabis in all of Canada. Why? Few other strains match its sweet + earthy flavour or cerebral high. Girl Scout Cookies’ famous parents – OG Kush and Durban Poison X F1 — are to thank for this unique combo.
GSC is also powerfully medicinal. Customers say their aches and pains simply melt away when under the influence of Girl Scout Cookies. Also, consider it if you have mood problems of any sort.
Death Bubba | This Indica strain is considered grade AAAA for a reason. It’s a direct descendant of the wildly popular Bubba Kush, which means it’s deeply relaxing but has just a hint of energetic vibes thrown in.
Expect to feel energized and inspired, with inspiration giving way to relaxation as the high progress. This strain is simply perfect for introspection and creative work. Near the end of the experience, however, you might want nothing more than to get some sleep.
And then there’s the taste. Death Bubba has a simply delicious flavour! Notes of sugar, spice, and everything nice — just kidding. In all seriousness, notes of spice + pine + lemon combine to provide an earthy overtone that’s sure to be a hit. Especially among fans of traditional Kush strains. Even the nug development on Death Bubba is pretty impressive. Its dark green buds are deeply frosted over with trichomes and decorated with vivid orange hairs.
Master Kush | This premium strain is a cross between Hindu Kush and Pure Skunk, and it manages to capture the best of both worlds. Master Kush provides full-body relaxation without clouding your mind.
And if you have trouble sleeping, take note: Master Kush is powerfully sedating. Its high THC content and pure Indica genes mean it packs a [relaxing] punch! For new users this relaxation can even be too much; some report mild dizziness. But if you need something strong, Master Kush might be the perfect strain for you.
Bluefin Tuna Kush | Another grade AAAA strain, Bluefin Tuna is an Indica-dominant hybrid that’s pungent, skunky, and powerful. True to its name, Bluefin Tuna Kush has a slightly fishy aroma, with hints of skunk and diesel thrown in. You know, just for good measure.
What about the effects, you might ask? This strain is powerful. It clocks in between 25-30% THC, so expect a highly psychotropic experience anytime you smoke it. Bluefin Tuna Kush uplifts the mind, boosts creativity, and gladdens the spirit. It makes a perfect companion for daily tasks and chores. Just don’t take too much that you can’t do anything!
Nuken | This 80% Indica strain is a delightful cross of God Bud & Kush. What’s it like? Imagine eating a marshmallow that smelled like top-grade dank and got you quite high in the process…and there you have it. Nuken is a customer favourite for many reasons, but perhaps the biggest one is its simply incredible taste.
And the mental benefits of Nuken probably don’t hurt either. Customers describe “damn good sleep” and a high that subtly builds up over time.

Cannabis tips & tricks
So, suppose you’ve just ordered a few Indica strains and now they’ve arrived. Unbox your package and break its vacuum seal, and you’ll notice delicious fragrances wafting up almost instantly. Time to enjoy!
…and also time to put some effort into keeping your stash fresh. Here are some tips to help with that.
- The best storage container for bud is an airtight glass jar. Throw in a humidity pack, too; it’ll help preserve your strain’s delicate terpenes and terpenoids.
- Use a quality grinder to mix your cannabis into a powder before smoking. You should mix until you’ve reached a light, airy consistency. It may not seem important, but airflow if key, and it can radically improve the quality of your next smoke sesh.
- Show your cannabis some love! Don’t let it get broken down by the elements. High temperatures, dry climates, and direct sunlight can all degrade your bud’s most important ingredients, so keep these forces at bay. After all, premium weed deserves premium treatment.
