Indica

Afghan Kush

Afghan Kush is one of the oldest pure indica strains in the world. Great for making hash with its high resin content, this sticky dense weed has been doing it’s thing for a long time. The flower is thick and tough and the high is heavy and sedative. It’s origin is linked to Hindu Kush, which comes from the mountain range on Afghanistan’s border. This strain has been growing for centuries and is known the world round. Afghan Kush has it’s roots deep in marijuana culture and really is a living legend in the game.

303 Kush

For lovers of Bubba Kush, this strain is a must-try, especially for the aroma and taste package, which is potent and reminds us of the best examples of that strain we've ever had. The effect is a little more uplifting and active than Bubba traditionally is, but this 303 still had quality body relaxation properties that made the incredible mood it put us in even more enjoyable.

Afghani

A very stout and hearty variety that originated in the rugged mountains of Afghanistan, these dark green Indica plants can survive almost anything. Pest and mold-resistant, easy to grow, and compact. Traditionally used in hash-making, Afghani varieties are often extremely resinous and sticky.

32 ("Three-Two")

Albert Walker is a legendary clone-only Afghani skunk variety, while Manic is also an old-school Afghani, though with a sugary sweet smell. The combination of the two creates a hard-hitting yet very positive Indica hybrid that yields welland exudes a lemon-garlic aroma.

Moby Dick

This sample was not overtly potent and felt smoothly enjoyable the entire time, only trending a little towards the drowsy towards the end, which normally works out well for a middle-evening medicating session. Mental Floss has a very unique bag appeal, with its strikingly colorful appearance and floral incense-meets-berry smell having us very excited to try it. The tiny seeds we found in areas were certainly disappointing, but didn't really seem to affect the smoking experience much, nor the look. The effects were perfect for an after-work uplift leading into early bedtime. We'd recommend this med to patients of any experience level, though it isn't quite top-level in terms of overall potency and duration. The unique aural effects this one had might make it particularly interesting to musicians or avid music listeners.

Abusive's OG Kush

Abusive's OG (later renamed "L.A. Kush") is a special OG Kush cut thought to be a "selfed" OG bagseed. The original grower was nicknamed Abusive, and the cut kept his name.

Afghanica

A stout, resinous plant in the typical Afghan mold with a yield boost coming from the addition of the Skunk #1. Mold and pest-resistant, it's a good choice for beginning growers. It produces solid, heavy buds and is thus well-suited for commercial applications.

Afkansastan

Like a roller coaster with a big first drop, this one was strong off the bat and then finished out much calmer. We loved the mixed nature of the high, and it felt almost equal in terms of mental and physical effects. The unexpectedly sweet and fruity taste and smell was a great addition to the effects. I'd recommend this to almost anyone, as it was balanced and not too strong… and may be our new in-house favorite "easy indica".

AfPak

Strong medication. The buzz really got me stoned and felt very discombobulated. The strong head high followed by a strong body high had me planted on the couch. I wasn't completely drained of energy, and it gave me a great tranquil ending to the buzz. After a long day at work grinding against major back pains, I will go to my stash and definitely fire up the AfPak.

Afro Berry

Normally a mix of deep purple and greens, Afro Berry is a very attractive-looking Indica-dominant strain with a dark, fruity scent and a relaxing moderate effect.

AK-47 x NL-5

AK-47 used to be one of those elite strains that made everyone "ooh" audibly, but it has been knocked down a tier in the last few years with all the high-grade Kush and Diesel strains especially - this was a good reminder that it's a strain to reckon with, as is the even older Northern Lights #5. It's very clear why these strains were chosen as a hybrid - it provided a superb blend of hybrid effects that seemed to satisfy a little bit of everything while maintaining its power throughout the duration. Its smell was extremely unique but unfortunately that didn't translate to the taste, which was only average. Still though, this old-school blend would make almost anyone happy (literally, it was an instant mood enhancement) and would help patients greatly with almost any disorder that they may have except for very serious pain.

AK-48

This is a bud I will go back for again and again. Perfect summer afternoon chill or go out and hang with friends, very versatile with relaxing overtones. Many of today's multi-breed strains seem more like abominations and fail to provide me with a real identity of their own, but the AK-48 takes all its ancenstry in stride and presents itself like an original.

Albert Walker

The strong roadkill skunk-meets-lemon funk of Albert Walker will overwhelm the smell of many other plants in the grow room. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, but of unknown lineage, this Indica-dominant strain has a positive, relaxing, mood elevating effect that lasts longer than most.

Learn more

Alien Dog

The Alien Dog is a terrific indica based strain, stemming from one of the most popular strains making its way across the country (Alien Technology). We recommend using small samples of this for medicating, as the more you ingest the larger the head/mind effects become and it seems to detract from the brilliance of the body medication. On the other hand, seasoned patients may enjoy the diversity the strain offers and choose to go "all in" for both mind and body exhuberation.

Alien OG

The Alien Kush adds some indica punch, dark coloration, and further trichome coverage to the already legendarily-potent and tasty Tahoe OG Kush clone.

Critical Mass

We always have a place for moderately potent Indica strains in our lives, and this strain fit that bill perfectly, signaling its Afghani roots in smell, flavor, and effect. Though not overtly potent except right at the beginning, this strain had good "torque" and kept up at a fairly high level, declining smoothly over the 2nd half of the duration and leaving behind a relaxed and capable mind. It didn't help with severe pain, but it did really make our bodies feel good, and we like this strain mostly as an evening relaxer for days when a little mental uplift and a few hours on the couch leading into sleep is the perfect recipe.

Learn more

Coup d'Etat

When we got this sample, Dr. Blaze informed us that this was the first real batch ready for the public and that it will be receiving lots of attention and improvements over the coming months. That jives with our experience for sure, as it appeared that this one just didn't quite reach the genetic potential it holds. The Coup mother was one of the nicest in-house creations we've come across, and with the Widow potency, we were expecting a little more of a slam/couchlock experience. But it remained mostly heady (though having GREAT anti-anxiety and solid body relaxation properties), leaving us functional though a little dull-feeling… can't wait to see this one in its completely dialed-in form.

Cali Connection Bubba BX2

A special seed release for the 2010 High Times Amsterdam Cannabis Cup (it was planned as their Indica entry, but there weren't enough dried buds around before the competition to enter officially), this pet project of lead breeder Swerve came about in an attempt to re-create the clone-only legend Bubba Kush in seed form. An unknown male (possibly Swerve's SFV OG Kush F3 which he used for many breeding projects) was used in this double backcross, first pollinating on the mother to create seed, then another male from that population going back to the Bubba mother once more to reinforce her traits. The resulting plant grows much like the Bubba mom, but some variation in structure (some phenos will have long, slender nugs which is unusual for Bubba) is to be expected. However, the majority of nugs are the stereoptypical Bubba pine cone/golf ball shape with large calyxes and that signature purple-gray coloration coming on as harvest approaches.

Bubba Kush S1

With its long list of medicinal properties, its very good duration, and solid overall potency, this Bubba Kush S1 comes highly recommended for patients seeking a relaxing Indica experience that keeps you mentally clear and capable, even energetic at times. The grow quality was very high, with no visible flaws aside from the loose manicure, a great selection of colors, and plenty of well-timed trichomes. While we didn't like the super-sharp smell and taste quite as much as we do the more standard Bubba, it was certainly unique and served to mark this S1 variant as distinct from its parent. If you're a fan of Bubbas, be sure to give this one a try, both because it provides many of the qualities you know and love, but also because it adds something a little different to the equation.

Bogglegum

As with many of the high-THC% samples we've had, it seems that the potency mostly translates into a longer duration rather than a "woah!" type of experience to start — this Bogglegum carried on for a very long time (especially at higher doses) and held its potency at an above-average level for quite a while. If the peak potency were a little higher, it would've been an easy A, but it just didn't grab all of our review staff with its effects, which were mostly just base relaxation and a slight uptick in cerebral activity. The grow was nearly flawless, the sample was rather beautiful, the smell and taste both were above-average and enjoyable… it was just one of those strains that might never get into the upper-echelon of modern medical cannabis, as this seems to be pretty much its genetic potential. Try it out if you like a fairly functional Indica with a sweet soil taste that holds its potency for a long time — it's recommended most for intermediate patients.

Pretty stereotypical Blueberry — bright calyxes, dark green leaves, and orange pistils. Average in almost every sense, it was dense enough to be substantial, dry enough to burn well, and covered in a moderately dense layer of trichs.

Big Wreck

Big Bud is known to be a weaker strain that many growers use to up the yields of more interesting strains, yet this Big Wreck is very potent. Indicas are so good for pain and relaxation, and when you find one that still allows for mild conversation it is a real plus. New patients should go slow when medicating, don't smoke a whole joint or you will find yourself with unprovoked guilt and paranoia.

It's definitely a berry-scented strain, but that didn't translate to the taste. Still, the pleasant smoking experience again made up for that shortcoming, making this a perfect selection for patients who need an Indica but don't like the thick, at times cholorophyl-laden (since they generally have more leaf matter) smoke they deliver… "pleasant" was the word that kept coming to mind with this one.

A major delay with this med, for the first ten minutes I was wondering if any effect was going to occur at all.

Cotton Candy

Absolutely a great hybrid and one of the best aromas available today. The flavorful taste of the Cotton Candy (or Sweet Tooth) mixed with the great power of Romulan, makes this an ideal medication. An important note to make is that there seems to be no peak of high with this strain, so although the duration could have been better to receive an A, a patient can easily up the dosage to reach desired effects

From Fire OG, the strain picks up trademark bud structure of OG Kush, and from the Cough, the bud produces a thick, flavorful smoke that many people enjoy in quality hand raised cannabis.

Crystal Gayle

The appearance of this strain is probably what most people would talk about if forced to choose, as it is truly impressive and beautiful, possessing both great structure as well as trichome coverage. Though we wanted the taste to match the lovely smell, it was adequate and didn't harm the experience in the least — the smoke was very smooth and enjoyable. The area where this strain really shined though was in its initial potency and its long-lasting duration, both of which were top-notch. In previous experience with the Northern Lights used in this cross, that was true of that strain as well — very enduring med that stays at medicinal levels longer than most. The particular brand of functional Indica relief this strain offered will help almost anyone dealing with daily pains and stresses while leaving them able to live their lives capably and handle social and professional situations. This new cross is great for intermediate users but will even impress the connoisseurs with its appearance and staying power.

Dawg's Waltz

Coming out of the breeding projects of a grower known as "High & Lonesome", with the blessings of Top Dawg Seeds (the holders of Tres Dawg), this hybrid combines the legendary Purple Urkle clone with JJ-NYC's fiercely potent Tres Dawg, which is essentially a Chem D backcross. The Urkle imparts its signature coloration and some of its aroma and flavor, but the added sharp chemical kick of the Chem D makes everything more interesting than a standard "purple" and make this variety one of the strongest-smelling strains in almost any garden. Also increased is the potency of the Urkle, making it much more sedative and hard-hitting cerebrally — this strain is best used in the evenings, as it can lead to sleep due to the deep relaxation and strong ocular effects is offers.

A surprising favorite amongst the staff, this potent medicinal Indica has a place with any patient who struggles with pain or appetite especially, but it's also a great choice for anyone later in the day or when being physically active isn't required. Watch the dosage with this one though, as it can put you to sleep if you're not careful! Altogether, it's a superb medical strain with a pleasing citrusy taste/smell package.

Fucking Incredible

While we are not really fans of the smell and taste of this strain, the effects were enjoyed thoroughly by the staff. This strain provided a solid combination of mood uplift and strong body relaxation while keeping functionality mostly intact — this is a somewhat rare combination of effects that were perfect for fighting off the urge to get up when doing solitary work. The strange purple cast the trichomes had over the entire surface of the bud was also rather unique, especially when viewed with our microscope. If you're a patient that is looking for muscle and pain relief but don't want to be zombiefied and overtly sleepy, this is a very good choice.

The Gum comes off as a strain in the fruity section of things, smells real nice but lacks in taste.

This one would do the trick for almost any type of pain or discomfort, and its relaxing effects were both mentally and physically medicating. It would probably get on top of most patients who aren't heavy users, as even a 0.3g dose was enough to put a veteran into the "overwhelming" range at the onset. Its enduring medicinal-level efficacy was the key component of its high score, as there was almost no drop-off in effects as the 2nd hour elapsed, which is unusual.

Patients who suffer from anxiety issues can find relief here, as this is a Sativa that will not cause panic or discomfort, even at higher dosages.

This is a perfect strain for a day off at home or an evening after a tiring day of work, serving to deeply relax the mind and body and relieve most pains.

We felt that the effects seemed to depend upon context a bit, as a morning review produced more of a moderate Indica hybrid experience, and a later session resulted in a more overt Indica feeling, with only the first 30 minutes to 1 hour feeling energizing or stimulating. The sleep aid properties that ended this experience were perhaps its greatest medical benefit, but the main effects serves to elevate mood a bit while helping with daily aches and tensions. Oh! Zone had a potent start that might be a little much for inexperienced patients, so we'd mark this in the mid-level patient category, primarily for evening use.

Papaya

We really enjoyed this sample after not being overly excited to try it based on our experiences with Mango and its family in the past, as well as the reputation of Nirvana Seeds for putting out variations on other seedbank product. However, this particular Papaya really impressed us with its strong and lasting Indica-dominant effects which had us glued to the couch, but enjoying every minute of it. The musky and complex fruit smell and flavor really reminded us of Mango at times, and that added to the overall appeal.

Pine Soul Goji

Pine Soul was the name given to a specially selected phenotype of Bodhi Seeds' Goji OG. To avoid any conflict with copyright laws it is termed Pine Soul though the fragrance is reminiscent of a very popular lemon scented all-surface cleaner.

Pink Pez

The smell this strain possessed was pretty wonderful — basically the opposite end of most of the impressive-smelling samples we've had lately (most seem to be Diesel or Kush-dominant), it provided a wonderfully sweet candy-like aroma that still had a nice sharp quality to it. The appearance was very good as well, with lots of colors and great structure. Though the cannabinoid numbers came back kind of low, the initial potency actually felt rather strong and this strain held steady at medicinal levels for a solid 1.5 - 2 hours, which is very good. It might get on top of you a bit when it shifts gears mid-way through and gets heavy on the eyes, but the worst thing that would happen is an unexpected nap. We recommend this as a very good after-work relaxation med or one that leads into sleep; it was a quality Indica-dominant hybrid experience overall.

Platinum Master Kush

The first 45 minutes or so are Sativa in nature, with an increased heart rate, a buzzing and energetic body presence, and lots of eye and head pressure. After that initial Sativa blast, it turns almost completely Indica, causing heavy relaxation and a lazy, goofy, near-euphoric state. As it dwindles away, the energy level goes down, making this a good lead-in to sleep as well as a general relaxant and mood elevator.

Plum Kush

Perhaps an AFghani-dominant phenotype of F-13, Plum Kush has a heavier effect than normal, more in line with the Blueberry side of the family, but with the spicy Kush-like taste of Flo.

Power Kush

A hearty and quick-flowering variety, it has slender leaves for an Indica-dominant plant and produces a large amount of thick, creamy-orange pistils. When it's finished, it produces a citrusy aroma with a light skunky backdrop — it's a moderate yielder, but a problem-free type of experience overall, good for beginners.

Purple Kush

The SR-71 cut is thought to be a very similar to Purple Urkle (possibly a hybrid) and has more of the typical "purple"/hashy grape flavor — it was passed most commonly by the SR-71 (now Blue Sky) Coffeeshop in the "Oaksterdam" section of Oakland, CA and may be Purple Afghani x Hindu Kush. The Garberville Purple Kush is most notably held by Swerve of Cali Connection Seeds fame and tends to grow with some foxtails and has more of a straight-up Kush taste/smell with hints of the "purple". Kyle Kushman's Las Vegas Purple Kush was claimed in a New Yorker article to be a special Purple Indica x Northern Lights find, but many have since claimed it's an S1 Bubba Kush of some kind due to the dark flavors present. And finally, many old-school people claim that none of the famous clone-only PK's around are in fact the original Purple Kush, which is said to be a very special Purple Pakistani variety that was found in the late 70's or early 80's. As you can see, the history of a strain that's been renamed several times and has several legit versions floating around gets very murky quickly.

Purple Urkle

A California medical scene cut that is dated back to the late 1980's, the Urkle (also called Purple Urple, and Purple Urkel) is thought to have come from the Mendo Purps line. It's a slow-vegging plant that almost always turns a deep shade of purple by the time it's finished. It's the purple plant of choice for many, as it's known for being more potent and flavorful than many of the others.

Purple Voodoo 1

This "purple" was better than many in that it didn't leave us feeling totally groggy and sleepy, but rather had a fairly clear-headed feeling for the majority of the effects. Some of the typical Purple taste combined with a strong Afghani influence made this an average medicine in terms of taste and smell, but the duration and effects mostly made up for it. We would recommend this strain for an indoors nighttime activity or work, as we were functional but not exactly full of energy — it would put you in an appropriate mental state for sleeping as well by the end of the effects if consumed in the evening.

Querkle

Querkle has two main phenotypes: one pheno is shorter and more purple, while the other trends toward the Space Queen and lacks the coloration and also has more of a Sativa effect. It's a moderate to heavy yielder, especially if it gets a long veg time and lots of root space.

Romulan x Chemo

Romulan is thought to be an Afghani-dominant strain, known for its peppery aroma and strong, narcotic effect. UBC Chemo was supposedly developed by the Canadian government for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments. The combination of the two strains produces a very potent hybrid with great medicinal value.

S.D.D.C.

A wonderful example of hybrid vigor, this strain brings together two strains on nearly opposite ends of the spectrum in the 70+ day flowering Sativa-dominant Sour Diesel and the burly, hashy, trich-covered Indica Deep Chunk. The flavor and scent expression of the parents changes slightly depending upon medium, phenotype, and growing conditions. It normally finishes a deep purple color, with both leaves and calyxes darkening as it approaches harvest time.

Silver Pearl

Though it won a Cannabis Cup way back in 1994, we didn't expect a whole lot from this strain, simply because it's very old-school and contains strains that make our collective shoulders shrug. However, this strain showed us that old Dutch seedbank material has its good points, as it provided a great Sativa-hybrid experience and a huge dose of fresh, sweet, fruity notes in both the flavor and the aroma. This particular grow was mostly without flaw, and we especially liked seeing the array of cloudy trichomes, which seems increasingly rare (we often see a bunch of clear heads with patches of ambers mixed in rather than a true progression). While its strong start and at times racy effect may get on top of some inexperienced patients, it was moderately potent overall and would be suitable for daytime relief for mid-to-experienced patients. This is a strong first KindReview for Green Mountain CARE, and we look forward to seeing more choices from their garden.

Sour Grape

Different from the Gage Green Grape Stomper which was renamed "Sour Grapes" by Blue Sky Collective in Oakland, this cut is from Apothecary Genetics and is their Grape Ape crossed with a Sour Diesel. The hybrid produces larger nugs than the Ape and demonstrates the hybrid vigor one would expect from such a cross. The mottled purple coloration and tangy sour grape-meets flowers aroma is immediately enticing to users, while the flavor and potent effects keep them coming back for more.

Starfruit

Focusing mostly on the head, Starfruit exhibits a swirling and vibrating feeling around the skull which encourages a relaxed mindset. It was a bit of a creeper, increasing in effect and causing a pressure jump in the eyes and a pain-free and relaxed body. It helped with appetite, general relaxation, and pain relief while remaining nicely clear-headed throughout.

Sugar Cookie

The smell is something very unique that most of us hadn't encountered previously, a very refreshing and complex aroma that reminded us of other strains but always threw a wrench into the mix with an unexpected whiff of something. The effects were certainly Indica-dominant in the "stoned" vein where sitting on the couch relaxing and staring blankly at a movie seems like a great idea, making this a highly recommendable evening medication. It's great for unwinding at the end of the day without being incapacitated and serves to prepare the body and mind for a night of restful sleep.

Super Silver Lights

We appreciated how smooth the whole experience felt, from the pleasantly cool and mentholated smoke to the steadiness of the mood elevation and ocular effects. This one fits somewhere in the functional daytime Indica category at lower dosages, but creeps into the nighttime Indica category when the dosage is stepped up, and especially without remedication, as the end of the experience was fairly tiring for our staff.

Sweet Afghani Delicious

Unexpectedly sweet and fruity, this strain will certainly please those patients who place smell on the top of their list of qualities to look for. But even if that's not your thing, the effects were genuinely enjoyed by all of the staff, especially as a late-day or night-time med when relaxation is the goal. A very interesting strain indeed, though we wish the duration was a little longer.

The White

Named "The White" for the color of the finished buds (which absolutely drip with resin glands), this strain seems to be somewhere in the Kush family but is thought to have come from Triangle, an elite Florida strain. Though it's not considered a true OG among most collectors, it's reached the stratified air shared with those elite OG cuts in terms of rarity and overall value. The potency tends to be the most noteworthy trait of the strain aside from its incredible appearance, with many growers complaining of an overall weak taste compared to other OG-derived lines.

Warlock

Crossed from ho-hum commercial strains (Afghani and Skunk #1), this plant was a bit of a surprise for Gerrit Slot, the owner/founder of Magus Genetics. The plant shows some Sativa-dominant traits such as its high calyx-to-leaf ratio, its stretch after start of flowering, and its overall "up" effects. It's a branchy plant that is easy to manicure due to low amounts of leaves — the finished smell is generally a strong sweet/sour, slightly fruity combo.

White Fire OG

This cut has been gaining an incredible reputation in the elite genetics community, both because of the Fire OG Kush (one of the most sought-after OG cuts to this day) and Krome's The White (a less-rare but still elite OG-based cut out of Florida) — for Kush-lovers, it doesn't get much better than the "Wi-Fi OG".

White OG

White OG is one of the hardest hitting indicas in most collections. Settling in late in cure, the terpenes present in White OG are subtle but very fruity. At harvest though, and when just packaged, the buds seem generic, albeit covered in trichomes. Give this a couple weeks in your jar and you can observe aromas build to a complex richness to be savored.

A cross of the award-winning White Widow with an Afghani to increase yields and add more of an Indica effects package, White Rhino is a stout and sturdy plant that hardly stretches at all in flowering.
