Top Indica Strains
The best and most notable Indica strain we carry is ICE. Though ICE would be an accurate description for this frosty, aromatic bud, the name of the strain is actually an acronym for Indica Crystal Extreme. ICE produces a bountiful, sparkling yield in as little as eight weeks, but many growers prefer to extend the grow to ten weeks. ICE is a hybrid of Northern Lights, Afghan and Skunk, and though this strain does not produce the highest yield, producing about 55 to 65 grams of product per plant, but the high and flavor more than make up for smaller harvests.
- BLUE MYSTIC
Blue Mystic was borne of a collaboration between California and Oregon strains. The bushy plant can grow up to 1 meter tall, but we recommend topping or pinching the plant, and trimming like a bonsai for a maximum yield. Harvest around eight weeks for a sweet, fruity flavor, or wait until ten weeks for a stonier high.
- NORTHERN LIGHT
Northern Light is a favorite of connoisseurs and growers worldwide. Though the exact genetics of Northern Light is unknown, experts believe that the strain is the result of hybridization of 11 varieties. Current Northern Light strains remain Indica-dominant, with a heady, couch-lock high and a smooth, distinct flavor.
- SPECIAL KUSH #1
Our Special Kush 1 strain is the perfect choice for novice growers. Special Kush plants can grow to 3 meters and love warm outdoor climates. Our Special Kush 1 seeds yield small, tight buds and the smoke produces a body, hash-like stone.
- BUBBLE KUSH
Our sweet Bubble Kush is an Indica-dominant, sativa hybrid with a 19 percent THC potency. This perfect blend creates a relaxing, natural bliss as you explore the corners of your mind. Our Bubble Kush seeds yield plants up to 140 cm indoors and 200 cm outdoors.
- PINEAPPLE KUSH
As a descendent strain of OG Kush, Pineapple Kush combines the potency of the Original Gansta, with a pleasant, sweet aroma and flavor. You may taste a hint of caramel and vanilla, along with the pineapple. The high is heady and not quite as physical as it’s antecedent,
- O.G. KUSH
We carry the popular OG Kush strain, world-renown for its potency and distinct flavor. OG Kush has a dank flavor, with an aroma and aftertaste that lingers while you enjoy equally intense body and head highs.
- FAT BANANA
The sweetness of banana flavor can be appealing to many cannabis smokers. Breeding C. Banana with OG Kush has created the right combination in Fat Banana. This sticky green indica is called “fat” for a reason. Under 600W lights, it’s been shown to yield between 350–400g/m². This comes within two months of flowering indoors. The result is a thick, generous plant with over 25% THC in its yellow-tinged buds. Enjoy an arresting couch-lock that only the best indica can deliver.
- SPEEDY CHILE EXPRESS
Our Speedy Chile Express strain is an auto-flowering hybrid cross between Chile Indica and our outstanding Green Poison. The Indica-dominant characteristics allow you to stay buzzed, but alert and focused. The Sativa undertones produce a mellow body buzz with a focused, alert high, perfect for the all-day smoker.
- ROYAL COOKIES
Here at Royal Queen Seeds, we pride ourselves on Royal Cookies. We know how popular Cookies strains are. Of all the indica genetics, Cookies stands out in the name of any strain. It typically produces an aroma of confectionery treats, not unlike warm cookies. The sweet flavor of the smoke is tantalizing for the senses. Our Royal Cookies variety delivers not just on flavor, but on the waves of euphoria from a deeply relaxing indica high. With THC content reaching 23%, this high is a combination of muscle relaxation throughout the body and a cerebral head high. Pace yourself with this delicious stand-out from our catalogue.
Super Skunk, an indica-dominant variety known for big, dense buds, is one of the highest yielding strains you can have in your garden. Its flowers have a pungent, skunky aroma, a mix of sweet flavors, and a powerful relaxing effect over the body.
