What Indica Strains are the strongest?
If you are new to the cannabis world, you might be wondering about the impacts of Indica – well, let us give you a simple trick to remember. Indica is often referred to as the couchlock strain – meaning Indica strains offer that intense relaxing feeling that leaves you relaxing on your couch watching Netflix. But, of course, this is only one of the many benefits of Indica strains!
What are the benefits of strong Indica strains?
Not only does Indica help you to relax, but many smokers have also reported the positive effects of reducing nausea, increasing appetite, helping with anxiety and depression. So whether you are looking to smoke for fun or medicinal purposes, Indica strains are ideal for many purposes!
In comparison with Sativa strains, Indica strains tend to have higher THC levels that result in a more potent high. The high THC level is what creates that couchlock feeling. Many cannabis consumers choose to smoke Indica strains at night time due to the intense high and relaxation. In addition, Indica strains can be great for those who suffer from sleeping complications.
