North American Indica Strain

Unlike many carefully bred and stabilized strains, the name North American indica refers to a wide range of marijuana plants that have become naturalized to the continent. Growing wild, they’re considered their own “landrace,” which is a variety of a plant that adapts to the conditions of a specific area. Any indica grown in North America that isn’t another specific named variety can be labeled with this strain name.
