Top 10 Best Indica strains 2020

Cannabis varieties Growing

Indica strains come from the mountains of Afghanistan, Turkey, Pakistan and India. Because of their background, Indica’s are resistant to mold, hardy and can take a beating.

During the era of the hippie trail, Indica’s were grown en masse, smoked and crossed with Sativa strains. The first known Indica/Sativa hybrid was developed in the San Francisco Bay Area and was given the name “Skunk”. A cross between the Afghani, Colombian Gold and the Acapulco Gold.

Since then, many successful hybrids have been created, with the Indica genetics remaining dominant. So too in 2020. But what are the best Indica strains of 2020? We’ve listed them for you.

1. Pinkman Goo

Pinkman Goo is one of our premium-grade strains that more than deserves this first spot in this list of best Indica strains 2020. The plant develops very sticky buds that are covered in crystals. A very powerful strain with an exquisite skunky taste. Crack open a bud and the smell will surely leave a smile on your face.

Pinkman Goo is a cross between Granddaddy Purple, Grape Ape and Northern Lights # 5. A cross that has resulted in a high yielding plant with THC levels that can reach up to (19%). This makes the legendary Pinkman Goo probably one of the most special strains you will ever grow and smoke.

2. Grape Ape

Grape Ape is an Indica-dominant hybrid (80% Indica) and the result of crossing Mendo Purps X Skunk X Afghani.

It is a plant that grows to about one meter tall indoors and mainly grows in width. This provides the plant with a beautiful shape resembling a bush with little distance between the buds.

Grape Ape develops elongated green buds with orange pistils, dripping with resin. Her flowering time is about 60 days and will yield up to 500 grams per square meter when grown indoors. Outdoor growers growing in the northern hemisphere can start harvesting around the end of September.

After drying and curing, you’ll enjoy a deliciously fruity weed accompanied by distinct Skunk notes. The effect of Grape Ape offers a full-body stone that is great for relaxing the muscles and stimulating the brain.

3. Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple, or GDP, is a famous West Coast Indica strain originally developed by Ken Estes. A grower who conquered the world with his wonderfully purple plant full of dense thick buds.

GDP is the result of a cross between Big Bud and Purple Urkle and has resulted in a plant that can be grown both indoors and outdoors with great yields.

Her yield can reach around 400 grams per m2 when grown indoors. Outdoors, the plants can reward you with a yield that can reach up to 800 grams per m2. Quantity, however, is not the only thing GDP offers. In fact, the quality of the weed is astounding.

She offers an intense aroma and a sweet taste that sticks to the top of your mouth. The high is sleep-inducing and excellent for relieving pain.

4. Bubba Kush

Bubba Kush dates back to the 90s. The plant was originally developed by the famous grower nicknamed “Bubba” who during his college days experimented with growing different strains, including the Bubba and the Kush. Two separate strains at the time. However, it wasn’t until he went to Los Angeles that the Bubba Kush, as we know it today, came about by (accidentally) crossing the two cannabis strains.

The cross, however, turned out to be a golden move. Bubba Kush is in fact a stunningly beautiful plant and a fantastic example of a well-developed Indica. We could say that she offers everything a grower wants. Bubba Kush is an Indica dominant strain that displays all the typical Indica traits.

She stays short and develops many branches with tight heavy buds. During flowering she becomes covered in vibrant red hairs laced with powerful THC crystals and, under the guidance of experienced hands, can produce yields of up to 700-800g/m2. Combine that with a flowering time of 7-9 weeks and it won’t be hard to understand why she is so popular.

Bubba Kush now boasts a world-class reputation. This is not only due to her character traits, but mostly due to the fame she has gained for her smoky smoothness and insanely delicious body high.

5. Sunset Sherbet

Sunset Sherbet’s genetics come entirely from the genetic Girl Scout Cookies (GSC) line. Therefore she contains a significant amount of indica genetics (85%). The weed typically boasts a THC content of 21% making her the ideal weed for both recreational and medicinal purposes.

Growing Sunset Sherbet is not difficult, especially when growing indoors. For novice growers she is the ideal choice!

Both indoor and outdoor flowering time is about 8 to 9 weeks. When growing outdoors you will have to deal with fluctuations in temperature and mold. Especially during flowering when humid weeks insist.

When successfully harvested, dried and matured you will be rewarded with a powerful weed. The effect lasts for hours and has a positive influence on your overall mood. She takes away tension making you feel completely relaxed both mentally and physically. Ideal after a long, hard day or just to completely unwind.

At a low dosage the weed is ideally suited for creative activities. This is because it is a weed that will stimulate concentration and mind.

6. Zkittlez

Zkittlez is a very famous American strain that is mainly made up of Indica genetics and comes from a cross between the Grapefruit and Grape Ape. She became especially popular after winning the Cannabis Cup in San Francisco and Michigan in 2015. The Emerald Cup in 2016 then gave her the final push to really rise to the top.

Zkittlez is a very beautiful plant and features unprecedentedly powerful indica genetics. She can grow a bit taller than you are used to from an indica plant and develops many side branches. That said, this is a plant that can reward you with a very large yield.

Indoor growers can yield up to 500-700g/m². Outdoors, the plant often performs a little less well. Nevertheless, an experienced grower can harvest up to 600g/m² and all this with a pleasantly quick flowering period of 7-9 weeks.

Zkittlez is one of the most potent indicas around and develops a weed where the THC content can reach a whopping 24%! However, that is not the only thing that is powerful. The weed has a strong sweet taste with fruity aromas that remind you of the famous (and delicious!) Zkittlez candies.

7. Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies, or GSC, is an Indica dominant hybrid and although she is now one of the classics, as far as we are concerned she should not be missing from this top 10 with the best Indica strains of 2020.

Also in 2020 she was one of the most sold marijuana strains which is not surprising. Especially if you know who her ancestors are. Girl Scout Cookies is the result of a cross between the OG Kush and Durban Poison.

This cross makes the Girl Scout Cookies a plant with an extremely high yield potential, abundant resin production and a THC content that can reach up to 23%! A dense layer of trichomes completes it all and gives the dense buds a natural shine.

GCS can be grown indoors, in a greenhouse or outdoors in a dry, warm climate. Plants grow vigorously with large leaves, moderate elongation and respond well to cloning.

GSC weed packs a powerful punch in body and soul. Combine that with her chocolate, fruity, lemon and woody aroma and you have a weed to lick your fingers.

8. Purple Kush

Purple Kush is a pure Indica hybrid created by crossing the Purple Afghan with the Hindu Kush. She is considered one of the most powerful Indica strains in the world and develops a weed where the THC content can reach 21%!

The Purple Kush is an easy plant to grow for both beginners and more experienced cannabis growers. The seeds grow into sturdy mold-resistant plants with a bushy structure, tight internodes and large fan leaves. In addition, the plant is suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation in moderately cool to warm climates with its purple glow especially coming out at low temperatures.

It is a fast growing strain with a short flowering time of 49 to 63 days. The plant also has a notable yield potential of up to 450 g/m2 when grown outdoors. Indoors, SCROG or SOG can be used to optimize production up to 400 g/m2.

Due to her pure Indica genetics, you will experience powerful, but wonderfully relaxing effects. You will feel happy and satisfied, but you may also experience an insatiable feeling of craving. This makes the weed ideal for the evening!

9. Big Bud

Are you looking for a marijuana variety with a fantastic taste that can also produce a large yield? Meet the legendary Big Bud!

This 80% Indica hybrid is a cross between Afghani, Skunk and the old school Big Bud. This makes the plant extremely resistant to diseases and pests. Moreover, she is easy to grow. Whether you grow indoors or outdoors, beginner or advanced.

Despite her predominantly Indica genetics, the plant naturally tends to grow quite tall. Indoors it can even reach a height of 1.5 meters. Are you growing outside? Then this plant can even reach a height of 3 meters.

That being said, you can expect a hefty harvest. Something the Big Bud will gladly comply with! Indoors, an experienced grower can harvest 550 to 600 grams per m2 . Outdoors, the same plants can even develop a yield of 1000 grams per m2.

Quantity, however, is not the only thing Big Bud has to offer. The quality of the weed is extremely high and has wonderful smells, tastes and effects. Fruity, but also very skunky. Her THC content can reach 22% so expect a powerful but super relaxing effect!

10. Skywalker OG

We conclude this top 10 with the best Indica strains with Skywalker OG! A powerful Indica-dominant weed created by crossing the OG Kush with Skywalker genetics. This West Coast original developed high-quality resinous buds with a high THC content that tested at 20%.
