What are the best indica strains for sleep?
Whether you suffer from insomnia, anxiety, or just want to conk out, cannabis can be a fantastic help. It’s been said for many generations that cannabis is the key to sleeping problems.
Specifically, the indica strain is known to do wonders in the bedtime department. Because the indica strain usually has relatively lower THC levels than its sativa counterpart – it’s known to be more of a sedative for relaxation. Sedative + relaxation= the ultimate sleep vibes.
How do you tell which weed is good for sleep?
Trust your body. Every strain can affect the user differently. While one strain may make you sink into the couch, that same strain could have someone else experiencing feelings of paranoia.
A good rule of thumb for finding the perfect strain for sleep is by looking at the amount of THC (should be less than 20%). You should also look for a strain with relaxing terpenes, and honestly, a strain with a good amount of CBD won’t hurt either.
If there is too much THC in your bud, it may leave you feeling sluggish when you wake up. We don’t want you sluggish, we want you thriving.
