by Bridey Hicks

What are the 5 best weed strains for stress relief?

Everyday stress can be hard to manage. Some people use meditation, exercising, or making art to help diminish stress. Along with these activities, cannabis can be a dream come true in reducing stress. In fact, studies have shown that low doses of THC raise the body’s serotonin, which is the chemical in the brain that makes you feel *happy.* 

How to tell if a strain is good for stress relief?

To determine which strain will be best to relieve your stress, it’s important to know how you want to combat it. Knowing this will inform which strain you should choose.

Indica is a magnificent sleep aid, but it isn’t exclusive to stress in this case. Make no mistake, you can have an indica that’s great for stress relief, but you can also have just as much relief with a sativa or hybrid.

Since the best stress reliever isn’t always the strongest strain, you want to look for strains that specifically aim to relieve stress and anxiety. Indicas will relax the mind, while sativas will stimulate it. And a hybrid? It kinda does both.
