Grasslands is the budget division of Sundial Growers, not long ago we reviewed their sativa strain and came away thinking it was decent given the low price point.
Today we’re looking at their indica blend which is also sold at a discount price and has an undisclosed genetic history. We weren’t able to find much about this product – very little information is available about the flavour, smell or appearance so we’ll just have to dig in and see what we get.
It will be interesting to see how this compares to other budget brands like Simple Stash’s Indica or even Good Supply’s Grower’s Choice Indica.

The flower arrived from Grasslands in a plain white unassuming plastic container simply labelled Indica. We popped the lid off and inhaled deeply but found there wasn’t much to get excited about. The aroma reminded us of straw grass or dry wheat with a subtle herbal undertone.
Like their previous product, this one did not have a humidity shield included in the container so the flower was bone dry. The trichome layer was noticeable as was the contrast between the light green buds and dark green leaves – even though some of this leaf should have been trimmed off. The buds were small to medium size, fairly dense and interlaced with orangey brown hairs.
The flavour of this Indica was very similar to the aroma and reminded us of an herbal straw grass or wheat. The herbal leads and is distinct on inhale with the straw grass that gets considerably bolder on exhale. Not exactly an exciting flavour but also not surprising.
Our container was part of lot number 100001160-R1 and packaged on January 27, 2022. Listed with 17.2% THC content and a price tag of $99.95 for 28 grams, we found Grasslands’ Indica delivered a surprisingly strong effect when compared to it’s mild smell and flavour. Hitting the body with a moderately strong feeling similar to having overslept and feeling a bit lethargic, the mental side left us feeling a little cloudy in terms of focus. If you’re trying to pick a new strain then I don’t know if this one would be a good choice. It does the job which given the low price is all you can expect.
