The Aurora Indica Experience
Aurora is a potent strain that can plunge its consumers into deep, soothing contemplation. Aurora is a cross between an Afghani landrace and Northern Lights: what results is a fragrant and highly resinous flower that confers heavy, almost narcotic sedation.
Flowers of Aurora Indica are usually medium to large in size. The tightly-curled leaves are a pale sea green and are connected through with rich brown and red hairs. Finally, cloudy white trichomes cover the inner and outer nooks and crannies of Aurora’s flowers, making their light-colored leaves appear even paler.
Aurora’s flowers give off an earthy, spicy scent, on closer inspection, there’s also a fruity, berry-inflected aroma hanging out underneath. Additionally, grinding this strain’s flowers releases woodsy notes of pine and sap. When burnt, Aurora gives off a smooth and easily palatable smoke and fruity, coffee-tinged flavor on the exhale.
Like many other pure indicas, Aurora can be a creeper, requiring several minutes after consumption to take effect. Initial signs that the bud is doing its job range from a tingle around the eyes and temples to a flushing in the cheeks. Some cognitive distortions may be present as well, such as a warping of depth perception (especially in poor lighting) and a powerful sense of time dilation.
Most of all, though, Aurora makes itself known with a knockout physical high that may have consumers with a low THC tolerance diving for the closest comfortable couch. Waves of relaxation begin to spread down from the neck, rolling down through the spine and eventually outward through the core and limbs. Limbs can become heavy and unwieldy, while deep breathing may happen more deeply and easily.
Aurora can also have several applications for medical cannabis patients. It can be a temporary balm for the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. As noted, this bud’s sedative power can also send smokers to sleep, serving as a solution to entrenched cases of insomnia. Because it is not especially cerebral and won’t stoke paranoid thinking, Aurora Indica is also a good choice for patients who are prone to panic or anxiety.
