There are many types of Indica strains that are amazing but tend to be overlooked. Indicas are often associated with just making you tired and couch-locked, but that’s far from the truth. The best Indica strains can leave you feeling happy and relaxed. They can also help tackle medical conditions like fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis.
It depends on your medicinal needs, your ‘appetite’ or just what you’re looking for in a high, and finding the right types of indica that suit you. Here are our 5 favorite and underrated Indica strains that you should try to get some variety:
1. Granddaddy Purple
Introduced in 2013, Granddaddy Purple is a cross of Bid Bud and Purple Urkle. It goes by many names such as “Grand Daddy Purp”, “GDP”, and “Granddaddy Purple Kush”, among others. It is an Indica-dominant strain having 70% Indica strain.
GDP is not a strain that you can take lightly as it has a THC level between 17% and 27% and a CBD level of 7%. You can expect a deep berry and grape aroma. It deeply affects the mind and body, inducing a relaxing and euphoric state. Granddaddy Purple helps combat insomnia, loss of appetite, and stress for medical users.

G-13, also called Government Indica Strain 13, is the only strain thought to be bred by the US Government. While it’s been around since the 70s or 80s, this reasoning behind its breeding by the FBI and CIA remained shrouded in mystery.
G-13 has a THC level of around 23% (but can go up to 24), induces focus, creativity, and euphoria in many users. It is known to contribute to treating seizures, appetite loss and nausea. This federal flower also has a strong aroma of oranges but tastes a lot more piney and herby.
