5 Weed Strains Great For Relaxation

I’m continuing my marijuana strain series. I’ve already wrote about 5 strains that help you to be productive. Those strains are either pure sativas or sativa-dominant hybrids.

But today I wanna discuss 5 cannabis strains that help you to relax. Normally indicas and their dominant hybrids tend to be the ones that help people to relax and be sedated, but sativas can also do it in a different manned which is more suited for day use.

Now mind you, there are literally hundreds of sedating, relaxing weed strains, but I’m only going to discuss some of the most popular ones. That being said, here we go!

#1 OG Kush

Every West Coast rapper’s favorite strain. This what what Snoop and Wiz smoke. It’s an indica-dominant hybrid. Strong one, too. It’s genetic origins are not known, but it’s speculated that it comes from Chemdawg and Hindu Kush.

It has an earthy pine and sour lemon scent with woody undertones. It’s very calming, relaxing and euphoric at the same time. It’s useful for those who suffer from add/adhd, insomnia, anxiety disorders and migraines.

It is a mixture of Blueberry indica and sativa Haze. It tastes like sweet berry. It gives it’s user a full body relaxation while simultaneously providing mind invigoration. It eases you into it’s calming euphoria. It doesn’t give you strong sedation, mind you, it’s much weaker than sedation that you get on other discussed strains making it great for day time use.

This strain is a potent indica-dominant strain whose ancestors are Strawberry cough and OG Kush. So yeah, it’s good.

It has strawberry flavor, as indicated by it’s name, and it makes you more happy, euphoric and it also relaxes you and eases your social and overall anxiety. It’s a strong indica-dominant strain so it’s great for nighttime use. It’s also great for people who suffer from stress and depression.

I’ve discussed indicas, indica dominant hybrids, sativas and their dominant hybrids, as well as balanced hybrids.

Indicas are better for nighttime use and they are really sedating as well as calming and relaxing. Sativas are better suited for daytime use and can relax you, ease up your anxieties while energizing and motivating you. And different hybrids help in all of these areas differently. So, choose what you like, what suits your need and use it at appropriate times. Have fun!
