The Best Indica seeds of 2020: Top 7 Strains
Indica marijuana has some very unique traits. Most notably, this type of plant develops very bushy growth, rarely exceeding 120cm in height. In addition, its sedative effects make it the best to help you unwind, relax and even sleep better. Without further ado, let’s get started with the list of the best Indica marijuana of 2020.
What better way to start the list of the best Indica of 2020 than with a strain that is both productive and relaxing? Such is the case with Barney’s Farm’s Orange Sherbet, which, although introduced in 2019, is destined to be one of this year’s best Indica strains.
The breeders at Barney’s Farm have accustomed us to excellent American genetics and thanks to these they have been able to obtain this Orange Sherbet. It is an 80% Indica variety that comes from crossing Orange Cream, Purple Urkle and Cherry Pie, strains that stand out among the best varieties of this seed bank.
One of the best Indica of 2020 is Orange Sherbet for its good yield and aroma. If we had to highlight a first strong point of Orange Sherbet, it would undoubtedly be its ease of cultivation and productivity. Thus, it is a strain suitable for those who are just starting out in Cannabis cultivation. It is also a super strong plant, which means that it will thrive well in humid climates without being easily affected by mold.
On the other hand, yields are excellent for a very fast plant with a flowering period of 60-70 days. With good bud weight control through staking and sufficient attention, it is possible to harvest up to 650 grams per square metre indoors, while outdoor yields can increase to 700 grams per plant.
This is a powerful indica, although there are no THC levels recorded for this plant, we can assure you that it is a very potent marijuana with relaxing effects.
The last of its strong points is its aroma. Due to its genetics, Orange Sherbet has sweet, caramel, citrus aromas.
The Kush family is one of the most appreciated in the Indica world. That’s why we wanted a strain from this family to be present in the list of the best Indica marijuana of 2020. Pink Kush is another Barney’s Farm strain with stunning colouring and excellent organoleptic properties. And now you will understand why.
Behind Pink Kush there is an impeccable genetic work in which strains from the OG Kush family have been used. This is one of the most popular strains for its complex aroma and psychoactive capacity. Thus, to obtain the Pink Kush, Peyote Purple specimens have been used with the queen producer, Critical Kush.
In addition to good yields, this cross-breeding has given Pink Kush a very interesting aromatic profile with sweet and vanilla flavours, one of the reasons why it is on the list of the best indica marijuana of 2020. Beyond the fragrance, Pink Kush is a strain that doesn’t require too much care and will thrive if its basic needs (water, light and nutrients) are met.
As expected for this type of plant, it has a fast flowering time of 65 days and a bushy growth habit. In this period of time it will be able to produce up to 650 grams per square metre indoors and 700 grams per plant outdoors. In the case of the latter type of cultivation, the use of a greenhouse is recommended for best results.
The amount of cannabinoids will not leave anyone indifferent either. Pink Kush has an overwhelming 24% of THC of pure relaxation and well-being. You can use Pink Kush to increase your sex moments, but also to sleep like a groundhog or to unwind properly after a hard day’s work.
Bubba Island Kush
One of the best Indica marijuana of 2020 is undoubtedly the Bubba Island Kush, despite not being presented during this year, this specimen had to be on the list. It’s a strain from very exclusive American genetics and presented by the Dutch Passion seedbank.
Bubba Island Kush has been obtained by genetically combining such famous marijuana strains as Grandaddy Purple and OG Kush. Both strains are highly regarded for their effects and aromas. The result is a fast, hardy plant suitable for any growing medium.
Its height is low, so it is recommended for use in guerrilla growing, discreet or places with little space. One of its highlights is its flowering, quite short for a plant of these characteristics. In this way, it can end its flowering cycle in a maximum of 55 days, offering quite generous harvests for such a short period of time.
In the same way, its flavour is appreciated for its full terpene profile. We find flavours and aromas reminiscent of the taste of damp earth, slightly spicy and fruity. Definitely reminds us of the special taste that has the OG Kush.
Among the best Indica marijuana strains of 2020 there are also specimens with small Sativa characteristics that improve the final result. This is the case of OGKZ, a strain from one of the most popular American seed banks, Humboldt Seeds. It is an 80% Indica and 20% Sativa strains, which makes it a very balanced genetics. Its parents are strains as appreciated for their aroma as Zkittlez, one of the most famous American strains among the public.
OGKZ’s colouring is very eye-catching thanks to its OG Kush genetics. From the interior of Mount Mendocino it is possible to obtain genetics as stupendous as OGKZ, a very showy hybrid marijuana with a tall outdoor height, as it can reach up to 4 metres in optimal conditions. With all that this means in terms of production levels, as it has wild harvests outdoors.
Thus, outdoors and tutoring the plant properly, you can get up to 3 kilos of harvest per plant. Indoors, its behaviour is different, although it is a great strain for a SCRoG, it will not reach much height and you can easily get up to half a kilo of harvest per square meter with a flowering period of 2 months.
Its effects are very powerful and balanced. It has a THC content of 24% that will knock even the most experienced grower off the couch. Finally, its flavour is highly appreciated for the varied notes that we find during tasting. Mainly sweet, woody, citrus, pine, cinnamon… A real aromatic experience!
We continue with the best Indica marijuana of 2020 with a specimen that although it has not been presented this year, it is one of our favourites for its potency. This is The New, a 2019 strain from Humboldt Seeds that is one of the most THC-rich strains of the moment.
This variety has been developed by the famous breeder Sherbinski, who has made a selection of the best marijuana from this house to obtain The New, the new Indica marijuana sensation. Behind this variety we find a cross of genetics from Girls Scout Cookies with Larry OG, potency and flavour in equal parts.
It is a medium-sized plant with a fairly vigorous vegetative growth. In fact, it is recommended to grow indoors for a short period of time to prevent the plant from overgrowing. It is an ideal plant for dry and warm climates. For example, the Mediterranean area is great for this strain.
One of the reasons why it is on the list of the best Indica marijuana of 2020 is because of its yield. As such, it can produce up to 3.5 kilos of harvest outdoors and up to 600 grams per square meter indoors. Outdoors, it is also recommended controlling its height, which can reach up to 4 metres.
Finally, the best thing about this strain is its potency, with 28% of THC. A potent strain not suitable for novice smokers.
Strains from European seedbanks also have their place on the list of the best Indica marijuana of 2020. Dutch Passion’s Banana Blaze is a clear example of this. It is also one of the most anticipated Cannabis strains of the year because of its banana flavour.
To trace the origins of this strain we have to go back to the early 90’s, which is when this strain dates back to. Dutch Passion’s breeders have been selecting the best examples of Banana Blaze to offer this new generation of seeds with great characteristics.
It is a medium sized plant, which means it can reach up to 1.5 meters in height. It is one of the best Indica marijuana of 2020 with a greater proliferation of lateral branches full of resinous and elongated buds, full of resin and with a pungent fruity smell.
In addition, Dutch Passion has improved the production capacity of this strain to offer up to 500 grams per square meter in indoor cultivation and up to 700 grams per plant outdoors, harvested in the first week after the summer.
We don’t have lab THC test results for Banana Blaze, but anyone who has tried this strain knows that it has good doses of THC that provide a deeply enjoyable body stone. It is a sedative marijuana that is great for sinking into a cloud of relaxation.
Finally, its flavour is undoubtedly its strongest point, being one of the few strains that achieves a plausible banana flavour. But it also has an aromatic profile complemented by other sweet and citrus fruit flavours.
Tropicanna Poison FV
We end our list of the best Indica marijuana of 2020 with Tropicanna Poison FV, one of this year’s most eye-catching strains. As such, it has a red colouring that will leave no one indifferent. If we add to this powerful effects and exquisite taste, we have a very complete strain.
Sweet Seeds, one of our trusted seed banks, has been in charge of producing this variety. To do this they have combined copies of strains as appreciated as Tropicanna Cookies and Red Poison, 2 strains of pure American race that provide flavour, colour and resin for this fast flowering Tropicanna Poison.
Undoubtedly, the most remarkable feature of its structure is its colour, obtained thanks to the Red Poison genes. On the other hand, it also has a medium height, so a slight weight control is recommended in the case of outdoor cultivation. As usual in the Sweet Seeds F1 seed range, Tropicanna Poison has a short flowering time of just 7 weeks.
In this time it will be able to produce up to 600 grams per square meter in the case of indoor cultivation and up to 650 grams per plant in the case of outdoor cultivation. All of this is washed down with an overwhelming potency thanks to its 24% THC content. In addition, its effects are full of relaxation.
Its flavour is also highly appreciated, as it offers a very complete organoleptic profile with aromas of biscuits, sweets, and a Skunk background that is noticeable at the end of each puff. Great taste thanks to an exquisite genetics.
