Top 10 Indicas of All Time


10. Northern Lights

Northern Lights is an older indica strain, having originated in the mid-1980s in Seattle. It is a resinous plant and it has parented plenty of famous strains, including Sour Diesel and Super Silver Haze. It is known to give the sleepy, comfortable feeling that indicas are meant to give users, and due to its legendary status, it has earned its place in our #10 spot.


9. 9 Pound Hammer

Weighing in at 80% indica, 9 Pound Hammer is a potent, grapey strain with undertones of lime. The unique flavor and extreme indica-related psychoactive effects (including intense pain relief and sleepiness) are what push this strain to find its way into our Top 10.


8. Kosher Kush

Kosher Kush is an indica that was bred by DNA Genetics in L.A. It won Cannabis Cup’s Best Indica twice in a row, landing it a #8 spot in our Top 10.



7. King Louis XIII

This strain is named after royalty for reason. King Louis XIII is a heavy-handed indica that will put down any user. A child of OG Kush, we believe King Louis XIII belongs in our Top 10.



6. Training Day

Another strong indica, Training Day is the child of Trainwreck and L.A. Confidential, meaning it packs quite a punch. With a high THC content, it will even bring a veteran smoker to their knees. That is why it scored #6 among our Top 10 indicas.


5. MK Ultra

Having won the 2003 Cannabis Cup and coming in second in 2004, MK Ultra has proven itself time and time again, earning itself a #5 place in our Top 10.


4. Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple has been famous since its unveiling in 2003. A cross between Purple Urkle and Big Bud, Granddaddy Purple most certainly has earned its way into our Top 10 indicas.


3. Pineapple Kush

Pineapple Kush is technically a hybrid, but it’s 90% indica-dominant, and that is what qualifies it for our running. 15% THC is enough to earn Pineapple Kush the third spot in our Top 10 indicas.


2. Critical Kush

Critical Kush is famous for its high THC levels with a hint of CBD. Its strong, relaxing qualities are what ranks it #2 out of our Top 10.


1. Ice Wreck

Ice Wreck, another one of our indica-dominant hybrids, tests at a phenomenal 27.7% regarding its levels of THC, which is exactly why we have named it our #1 strain out of our Top 10.
