The 4 Best Indica Strains to Find in Local Coffeeshops in Amsterdam

Indica is a known term to both weed connoisseurs and newbies as well. 


Since “indica” is a broad term, its strains are known for their unique flavor and effects. Contrary to sativa strains which are sweeter and characterize more of a floral and fruity base, indica strains transcend into earthier, herbal and musky aromas. 


Indica is a great strain to relax in the many local coffeeshops in Amsterdam, watch a movie and just unwind after a difficult day or when you feel like letting go a little bit, especially before going to sleep. It is known for causing a feeling of relaxation and a sedating effect on the body and the mind. 


It is believed to originate from India (hence the name) but could’ve also originated from Pakistan, Nepal and Afghanistan. 


If you are looking for the relaxing and earthy feel of Indica, well, look no more. Here are the best strains of Indica that can be found in the local coffeeshops in Amsterdam.
