L.S.D. is an Indica-dominant strain, named after a potent psychedelic drug because of the strain's extremely psychedelic and cerebral high.
The strain starts with an upbeat sense of happiness that can cloud the mind and leave some users completely confused and "mentally stuck." Some users claim to feel more creative or social after using L.S.D. in spite of the strong cerebral stimulation.
This degree of mental stimulation is quite rare for an Indica. Not surprisingly, L.S.D. also has typical Indica-based body effects. Users often notice the powerful body numbing 1 to 2 hours after ingestion, once most of the cerebral effects wear off. The negative effects may include cotton mouth, dry eyes, dizziness, headaches, and minor paranoia.
For most, this strain can be used any time of day to ease mild to moderate chronic aches and pains. L.S.D. is often prescribed to help deal with stress, anxiety, or depression. Patients also use the strain to treat insomnia, and a few choose it to help combat migraines.

Northern Lights is an award winning Indica dominant strain. This strain is well received by growers, medical patients, and recreational consumers and may be one of the most popular Indica strains of all time.
Known by many as a two hit and quit strain, Northern Lights slams the body into a wonderfully numbing, lazy mode. The desire to sit on the couch and listen to the call of munchies may be overwhelming to novice users even in lower doses.
Accompanying this body high is a nice sense of well-being and happiness. Some experienced users are reportedly instilled with increased creativity and focus as well.
Like most of its Indica-based ancestors and descendants, Northern Lights is highly recommended for evening use and insomnia. It is one of the purest Indica strains around which make it a highly sedative strain. It is also often chosen to relieve the effects of stress and anxiety. Many choose it for the heavy body high to weaken their chains of chronic pain as well. And the strong appetite inducing effects are used to help those suffering from such eating disorders as anorexia.

Named for the look of the top part of the plant that resembles the horn of a rhinoceros, this strain provides a strong Indica high. New users are cautioned to try this strain a few hits at a time as it can take a few moments for the full effect of the high to take effect.

Like many Indica dominant strains, this one should be used in the evening or at night and can be rather effective at treating insomnia.

Perennially popular hybrid Girl Scout Cookies is a heavy hitter that gives users the best of both cerebral intensity and comfortable body melt. It originated on the West Coast as a cross between strong Sativa Durban Poison and staple hybrid OG Kush. Although it’s a fairly even meld of its two potent parent strains, Girl Scout Cookies has a mellow high that leans more Indica.
Girl Scout Cookies proves its bag appeal with a rich, complex scent -- immediately obvious is a citrus sweetness, undercut by a baseline of earthy musk. When burnt or broken open, however, the buds give off a more toasty, biscuity scent, perhaps explaining the origin of the strain’s name. Smoke tends to be very smooth on the inhale and on the exhale tastes sweet and vaguely herbal.
Girl Scout Cookies comes on full-force: feelings of sudden giddiness are common, which can escalate into full-on euphoria. Users may feel increasingly chatty or disposed to socializing. There's also a trippy, psychedelic component to the high. Smokers may notice an enhanced sense of hearing -- or even of taste, with foods taking on a more dynamic flavor. A strong perception of time slowing down is also a commonly reported effect. Some relaxing physicality accompanies this head high; users may feel slightly heavier or more calm. And while Girl Scout Cookies won’t pin you down into an intractable state of couchlock, you may have more difficulty with tasks that require fine motor skills. This combination of easy-going effects on the mind and body means that Girl Scout Cookies has a wide range of medical applications. Its ability to elevate mood can make it valuable to patients suffering from depression, while its sustained sense of focus and immediacy can help those who find themselves keyed-up by stress or anxiety. The strain’s thorough indica relaxation may also relieve patient’s aches and pains, whether incidental or chronic. Potent even for more experienced cannabis fans, Girl Scout Cookies’ balanced high often lasts longer than average.
