North American Indica is a 100% pure indica strain that is indigenous to the North American regions. These strains are landraces and are typically indica in nature, although the exact indica to sativa ratio depends greatly on the latitude and exact area in which the strain is grown. Although the exact THC and CBD levels vary widely depending on the exact strain, it tends to have higher THC and CBD than its sister sativa strains. North American Indicas typically have small to medium-sized nugs that are light minty green to dark olive green in color with lots of clear amber to dark orange hairs. Each nug is typically dusted in a thick frosty coating of crystal trichomes, from clears to whites, and visible droplets of sweet sticky resin. Although the appearances may vary between strains based on their exact parentage, most North American Indicas tend to have the same heavy indica effects. The high starts slow with a creeping building euphoria that leaves you happy and giggly with tendencies towards being spacey and introspective. The body buzz comes next with a relaxing effect that leaves you sedated and completely at ease without any pain whatsoever. These effects make it perfect for treating conditions such as appetite loss, chronic pain, mild to moderate cases of depression, and chronic stress or anxiety. This bud typically has a classic aroma of pungent earthy pine that becomes spicy as the nugs are broken apart. The taste is of spicy coffee with an earthy pungency upon exhale.
