The Best Marijuana Strains For Sleep
Exactly one year has passed since the first case of COVID-19 occurred in Toronto, and ten months of that has been spent practicing social distancing measures to slow the spread of the pandemic. Isolation, job loss, and adjusting to a brand new way of life without so many of the activities we enjoy have been extremely taxing on mental health, leaving many people struggling with stress, anxiety and insomnia. Cannabis consumption has increased since the beginning of the pandemic. Both regular stoners and occasional users are gravitating towards the relaxing, sleepy effects of some strains, as they help combat some of the symptoms of staying inside. Here are a few of Terra Tonic’s favourite strains to look for from an online cannabis store if you’re looking to chill out and get a good night’s sleep.
As with any Tuna strain, Death Tuna packs a hefty indica punch, with a higher than average THC content of 30%. Bred from BC parents, Death Bubba and Black Tuna, this strain compounds the already sedative effects of these two classic strains to induce highly-sedated relaxation that eventually knocks the user out. Death Tuna is also known to promote feelings of happiness and stimulate appetite, which can be an issue for those experiencing high levels of stress and depression.
For an earthy, seriously dank toke, this craft cannabis strain is great for lounging on the couch, playing video games, and reading till you pass out.
Master Kush Ultra
This well-known classic strain is so deeply relaxing that its namesake is a mental manipulation tactic used by the CIA. The effects include an intense cerebral high along with a dreamlike euphoria that will leave you unfocused, disoriented, and deeply introspective. If you’re looking to accomplish anything at all while high, steer clear of this ultra-potent bud that is a popular choice for nighttime medicinal use, helping to alleviate stomach and body pain while incredibly relaxing muscles. Many users also report an improvement in mood and mental perception, assisting medicinal users in combating depression that can accompany other physical illnesses.
Master Kush Ultra yields dense, deep green buds with distinctive orange hairs that lend a sour yet slightly sweet flavour to its smoke. Be careful, though – this one’s known to induce some coughing, as its smoke is thick and dank.
Translating to the death in English, el Muerte’s name offers quite the hint toward its effects.
As an indica-heavy hybrid with THC levels as high as 25%, El Muerte hits you quickly, starting off with a buzzy head high that quickly settles into a hazy, couch-locked euphoria. Slowly spreading through the body, El Muerte is excellent for melting away pain associated with arthritis, injuries, fibromyalgia, as well as an effective treatment for chronic headaches and migraines. Causing physical pain to disappear, El Muerte helps you to drift off to a restful sleep that leaves you uplifted and refreshed.
El Muerte’s smoke is fruity and spicy, with a hint of skunky, earthy aroma provided by its deep green buds accompanied by glittering trichomes and peach fuzz hairs white and amber.
Another strain whose moniker is indicative of its high, Skywalker OG, will leave you seriously spaced out. An 85% indica-dominant hybrid, Skywalker OG boasts a profound body high that combines with 27% THC for a zoned-out, psychedelic sedation. These spacey effects on the mind are highly beneficial for dealing with depression, anxiety, anorexia and other mental health or psychological concerns. Skywalker OG boosts your mood and appetite, making it an excellent Lazy Sunday self-care strain, allowing you to take your mind off your day-to-day life. Tapering off to a blissful burnout, Skywalker OG lulls you off to a soothing night’s sleep.
The out-of-this-world effects of Skywalker OG come from its abundance of trichomes and sticky resin, so be sure to check your grinder’s kief catcher and roll your joint with a filter to avoid plugging up the airflow. Skywalker OG’s smoke is spicy and herbal, with a strong hit of diesel reminiscent of jet fuel.
One more 85% indica-dominant strain in our online cannabis store is the exceptionally rare Black DOG. Its name comes from both its colour and flavour, with deep green leaves that are so dark they are almost black and a robust earthy blackberry taste and aroma. Black DOG is known to provide a tingly head high with a THC content that ranges up to 25%, helping to soothe racing minds, negativity, and anxious thoughts. This strain is as intensely soothing to the body as it is to the mind, offering relief from body aches, chronic pain, migraines, headaches, and sleep disorders.
Contrasting the blackish buds is a thick coating of frosty white kief that would also benefit from a quality grinder with a kief catcher and joints rolled with a filter.
