Visiting India? Don’t Miss These 5 Must-Try Strains

Whether you’re a visitor or a local, India is home to vibrant cannabis culture. Unsurprisingly, there’s a variety of excellent cannabis to try. So in no particular order, here are some of the best strains that you should try when in India

Mysore Mango, Karnataka

Perhaps the ideal sort of weed found in India today — clean, green and seedless. It doesn’t possess a distinct flavour like mango. However, it emits the smell of the King of Fruits. Additionally, it has healing properties and is often used to reduce chronic aches and pains, especially joint pains. Insomnia, migraines, headaches, stress, anxiety and nausea are just some of the other ailments that can be healed by smoking it.

Idukki Gold, Kerala

Indukki Gold is an original unadulterated sativa landrace from Kerala, south India, producing vigorous and tall exemplary tropical sativa structure. The terpenes are floral, woody and spicy.
