hazy u dont know shit about weed dude......... fuck a critical+.
i'm not a fan of indicas at all myself, but just to show i can be neutral about it if that's what anyone needs or wants, why not start this thread for people to compare notes. i only know most of the strains i'll be listing by their reputations and the fact that they're really popular in crosses. maybe some of the strains will be new to some and of interest
afghani - the "original" indica... where all of those skunky strains originated. it's for anyone that wants skunky strains as well as getting back to IBL genetics and starting from scratch
northern lights #5 - the "beginners indica". it's low odor and productive. it's easy to grow and was one of the original indoor strains. it's in a ton of crosses
heroauna - is probably the most potent strain in the world
white widow - for those that absolutely need as many resin glands as possible for "bag appeal". white strains tend to lack flavor and smoke harsh though
G13 - another potent indica that was considered tops in potency before heroauna. very popular in crosses
critical + - one of the newer strains on the scene. it's showing up in tons of crosses. very fruity & skunky
OG kush - probably THE hottest indica for crosses these days as it's in almost everything. people love it's complex flavor, and people used to go nuts for it in california before it started showing up in crosses a couple years ago. it sold for insane prices
buddha's sister - i actually have a fem of this myself just because it's tart cherry flavor sounds yummy and off the radar as there aren't many cherry flavored strains out yet. i want to find a really nice fruity strain or two that make really delicious crosses as well as preserve the flavor in a haze strain for a cherrybomb 2.0, actually 3.0 as there's a cherrybomb indica and dr greenegenes original cherrybomb haze.
sour cream - it's not used in a lot of crosses that i know of, but it is one of the most delicious strains i've ever tried. crossed with a fruity strain, i imagine it producing awesome cheesecake flavors as it has a sweet cream cheese flavor. the buzz is almost a mid and not as unbearably stony as pure afghani and has nice euphoria and reasonable odor levels. i'm hoping my cross of that with much less stoney joey weed C99 x A11 preserves the delicious flavor with some of the hints of fruit that should be in it (never tested a female) while the buzz improves. only tutti fruity flavored highland thai and crushed red pepper tasting ORIGINAL kali mist are more tasty to me. blueberry isn't an indica, but it's "the most popular strain in the world", but i just don't get it. it has a similar mid buzz that doesn't inspire me and the taste just doesn't impress me. i've scored 2 different blueberries. sour cream is way sexier smelling & tasting.
by all means, share your personal experiences and opinions on these strains and add your own, though it would be nice if everyone didn't just list a bunch of variations on the theme like "G13 kush" or other crosses of two popular strains and named strains that stand on their own. yes, pretty much every strain i listed except afghani is an hybrid, but they are ALL building blocks for other crosses like G13 hazes. i know i've seen at least one sour cream cross besides my own.
hope this is a fun and informative thread for everyone
Jack's Cleaner 2, Sweet Haze, Haze x Skunk & 8 Miles High are all much fun, but fluffy, fuzzy 1985 Columbian Gold popcorn's that trippy! Thai? Malawi Gold? Mekong Haze (Cambodian)? Don't know.

Skunk = 25% afghan, 25% acalpulco gold, 50% columbian gold.
All the ogs ive grown were sativa leaning in structure. These were west coast cloneand s1s. If youre crossing id stick with the land race indicas from india afghanistan, morocco etc.
I think you want pure indica for breeding. Those strains you listed are hybrids faik.
Black Domina seems to be a very popular indica strain for mixing with almost anything.
whoever told you(and you believed) herijuana is the most potent indica in the world is a long way's off. ive grown it, it is easily better than commercial grade indica's yea, but it is not like you can get a 24% thc phenotypes in a 10 pack or even 20 pack of regs. their cbd is rediculously high which is what gives it the effects similar to heroin, hence the name. it smells like coffee and petrol oil, very smelly indeed. if i could breed with any indica, i would grow around 200 afghani, find the most potent female and use her to make seeds from a good sativa male.
ive got 7 delta 9 labs mekong haze 4 weeks in veg atm, stretchy ass plants, sativa landrace for sure, about 2' tall now under led's, very stacked nodes though... the led's are keeping them short, nothing but males have showed sex out of 10 germed plants. 6 males/4 females so far, killed the 3 earliest males to flower, keeping the latest 3 alive as they grow similar to the females with a bit more stretch. these seeds take about 7 days to germinate too. i'll be taking the best male Mekong haze and using him to make f2's and f1's with my super crystal mother plant.
(⌐■_■) stay stoned.
With the exception of afghani, all the strains you listed are hybrids, and some have a significantly high percentage of Sativa genetics too (eg White Widow, etc). Even Herijuana is an indica-sativa hybrid (see below). If you want a "pure" indica, then by definition it has to be a landrace strain originating in the subcontinent.
There are plenty of these strains out there, though how suitable they are as a basis for further hybridization at this point is another question.
As a matter of practice some huge percentage of modern strains have some part Northern Lights genetics in them already. In fact, I think of the strains you listed, many of them already probably share some genetic lineage.
I would agree with you that herijuana is almost certainly NOT the "most potent indica in the world", but if you get a good representation, it IS going to be really strong. While you can probably find indicas that are potentially stronger, you're probably not going to find one that's MUCH stronger.
Even if you did find a stronger indica, I'd hasten to add that pure potency shouldn't be the only criteria when picking an indica to use as a parent for breeding. Yield, flavor, and other growing characteristics matter too.
As a matter of practice, Herijuana probably *IS* a good strain to use as a parent strain to make some good crosses, since it itself is an inbred line, itself derived from two absolutely outstanding inbred North American outdoor grown inbred lines, and specifically selected for toughness and potency.
In other words, you're starting already with several key qualities any breeder would be looking for in a parent (stability, toughness, potency). What it lacks (flavor and yield) are possibly reasons to consider hybridization.
As a matter of practice, many of Sannie's strains are hybrids with this (eg Anesthesia, KOKush, MadShack, etc) and I've heard of a few others from Woodhorse and others (eg "Cherijuana").
One seed of BS prob wont get you a cherry pheno.
PLus if you crossed a Cherry mum to another plant its not cerian going to give you cherry hybrids.
What your doing is hacking not breeding
NL5 is an hybrid with sativa stone

back to top indicas??? Sensi seeds- Maple Leaf Indica would be a proper strain to breed with. Hash Plant. any a kush landrace perhaps??
