As the year draws to a close, it is time to take a look back to this past year and some of the glorious weed strains that we were able to experience. One of the best things about cannabis is, it is always changing, and evolving as growers and producers spend years carefully selecting the strongest and most sought after genetics to create the most potent, most flavorful and most effective types of weed.

The very first year of marijuana legalization seemed to go by so fast and to celebrate such a glorious achievement as a worldwide cultural shift in perspective. We would like to present to you a rundown of what Indica means, and a list of some of the best Indica weed strains of 2019.

What are Indica weed strains?

Indica strains are a robust marijuana plant species that are hardier in the cooler temperatures thanks to their short and robust form that helps to provide strength through harsh growing seasons and high winds. They are also often high yielding, but a small Indica variety doesn’t necessarily mean a bountiful crop. However, since they take up much less space to produce, they are heavily preferred by most marijuana growers.

The effects of Indica strains

Most consumers come searching for the best Indica strains in hopes of finding the most potent types of weed, but the truth is that some Indica cannabis strains can provide the same uplifting and invigorating effects that Sativa plants are known for. These labels have been used to generate a stereotype for both types of weed, but they hold little to no relevance to the quality of any marijuana product.

Indica vs Sativa

Both of these types of weed tend to bring to mind relatively specific preconceived notions on how the effect might feel to a consumer, but now that you know there is little to no difference in that aspect, you are probably wondering which one is better. The truth is that all different types of weed have benefits and drawbacks that may or may not be right for you, and the only way to know for certain is to try it out for yourself.
