Aurora Indica is a strain of marijuana that was bred when the Afghani and Northern Light strains were mixed. It is a strain of weed which is quite popular with those who consume as a result of medical necessities.
According to breeders of this screen, this is because it contains high contents of cannabidiol (CBD), and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Both of these compounds work with receptors in your brain which release neurotransmitters. As a result, they affect the way you feel pain, your sleep habits, your moods, and can sometimes even affect your memory. Since it has these effects, it is often used to treat insomnia, pain, and any medical and mental conditions which require one to rest and receive a full night’s sleep.
While Aurora Indica is a slight hybrid, it contains a majority, almost 90% of the Indica strain. Its appearance is also indicative of this as it is a short and slightly dense plant that can get moldy and breed fungus based on the conditions of the environment.
Aromatically, it ranges from anywhere between fruity and floral. The breeders claim that the effects of Aurora Indica are quite potent, releasing in intense laziness and what some call “couch-lock”. It is quite reasonably priced across the United States and Canada.
