This is the second part of our series “The best marijuana strains for cannabis shops.” In today’s episode, we want to showcase five excellently selling indica cannabis strains.
Choosing the right marijuana strains is an important task that every cannabis store owner has to deal with. On the one hand, you need to present a wide range of different strains to your customers, with attributes such as strength, effects and medical use cases appearing in great variation. On the other hand, you shouldn’t flood visitors with dozens of different options, since this inevitably involves the agony of choice and makes accurate guidance virtually impossible. A good rule of thumb is to have at least 10, but not significantly more than 20 different strains on your menu.
The list of superb cannabis flowers is practically infinite and also depends on the location of your cannabis store. The following is a list of five very popular indica cannabis breeds that have proven as outstandingly good selling products.
5. Critical Kush
Critical Kush is a fairly strong strain of marijuana that has first been created by the award-winning Dutch cannabis breeder Barney’s Farm. The indica concentrated strain has perfect attributes to serve for medical purposes in case of stress, depression, pain or muscle spasms. Critical Kush usually cultivates voluminous buds in a very short indoor flowering time of only seven to nine weeks, which makes it an inexpensive yet high-quality product.
After winning the High Times’ Cannabis Cup 2000 for being the best indica strain, Blueberry emerged as a marijuana classic and gained a legendary status among cannabis enthusiasts. The strain is relatively easy to grow and rewards its culturist with a decent yield in only eight to nine weeks. Blueberry’s sweet and fruity taste often reminds its consumers of a berry-like taste, which inevitably comes with an instant fan base once you first introduce it in your cannabis shop.
3. Blue Cheese
Blue Cheese, a considerably known indica cannabis breed, earned a reputation for being an easy to grow and heavily relaxing marijuana strain. The strain is a mix of Blueberry and UK Cheese and it also impresses medical patients with its ability to provide relief for muscle spasms, pain and stress. As one of the very best selling cannabis strains, it could be a great enrichment to your cannabis dispensary.
2. Granddaddy Purple
The Californian indica behemoth Granddaddy Purple (GP) is loved by many regular cannabis users that made an exceptional experience when consuming the purplish buds of the strain. With an average rating of 4.4 out of 5 and more than 3,000 reviews on the cannabis rating platform Leafly, Granddaddy Purple can be considered as one of the world’s leading cannabis strains.
Additionally, GP is a true powerhouse when it comes to growing its plants. As seen in the graphic below, the strain is outstandingly easy to grow, while also producing tremendous amounts of cannabis buds in a short time. This made Granddaddy Purple our number two indica strain for cannabis shops.
1. Northern Lights
Northern Lights is another very traditional marijuana strain from the Netherlands, first bred by the popular seed bank Sensi Seeds. Extremely short flowering times of 45 to 60 days, as well as big yields and an outstanding resistance against climate conditions, make Northern Lights the perfect choice for your cannabis store.
Because it is an easily digestible medicine for the treatment of sleep disorders and stress, Northern Lights was frequently mentioned as a highly beneficial strain for medical purposes. As a user on Leafly recently expressed in reference to Northern Lights, “I am a 60-year-old male who has had two back surgeries and have a myopathy called Pompe disease. I am about at the end of my time here on earth as this disease progresses and the best medicine I have found to relieve the pain has come from this plant.”
