Best Weed Strains To Help You Sleep
“Until I’m six feet under, Baby, I don’t need a bed. Gonna live while I’m alive and sleep when I’m dead.” Now that right there is a mantra we can all get behind! Hell, if we were a member of 90’s hard rock band Bon Jovi, we’d say precisely the same thing.
Then again, we’re not. At least, we don’t remember being present during the recording of Slippery When Wet. We’re also of the opinion that sleep isn’t all that bad. It’s pretty darn great, in fact. Therefore, and we appreciate that this flies directly in the face of all that Bon Jovi stand for, we’ve come up with a list of weed strains that can take your shut-eye to dreamy new realms. So fluff-up that pillow, tuck yourself in and prepare yourself for a voyage to the land of nod… Here is the best weed to help you sleep.
The Best Weed To Help You Sleep
Indicas, by their very nature, are known for their sedative effects; inducing a heavy feeling of drowsiness. It therefore comes as no surprise that taking more than few hits of Afghan Kush, the archetypal Indica strain, can result in an overwhelming feeling of lethargy. Due to its effects, Afghan Kush is often used by insomniacs as a night time medication, as well as effective treatments of stress and anxiety. If you have something even remotely important to get done in the next 12 hours, stay well away. Repeat: do not put that joint in your mouth. If, however, you’re desperate for forty-winks and old re-runs of Frasier are the only thing that are getting you through sleepless nights, look no further!

Tahoe OG Kush
A heavier, hybrid cousin of traditional OG Kush, Tahoe OG has rapid effects that leave you feeling tranquil both inside and out. It’s been known to decelerate the thought process, relax muscles and, ultimately, send users into the kind of slumber a two-toed sloth would be proud of. A godsend for insomniacs.

Northern Lights is one of the all-time greats for a very good reason: it’s phenomenal at what it does. An Indica-rich strain cherished for its resinous buds and a smooth smoke; it’s known to render even the most energetic pot-user as docile as a Labrador by a log fire. Even its name evokes an image of starry-eyed natural wonder. Northern Lights produces psychoactive effects throughout the entire body, soothing muscles and massaging the mind into a state of cosy euphoria. Slip into a onesie (preferably one of those fuzzy numbers that comes with little booties for your feet), climb into bed and send your mind on a voyage.

This one just sounds like its gonna knock you out. It’s far more than a dreamy name, though. Blue Mystic is another Indica strain (well done if you’re noticing a pattern here) that offers a herbal, fruity taste and a buzz that bodes well for rest and relaxation. If you’re struggling to get to sleep but aren’t an experienced weed smoker, then this is definitely a good place to start. Far less overwhelming than a lot of other strains on this list, yet still potent enough to pack a punch, Blue Mystic gives you the opportunity to ease yourself into a good night’s rest. Like lowering yourself into a hot bath; one inch at a time. And, once you’re there, expect lucid dreams and, in all likeliness, a fair bit of pillow-drool by morning.

CBD Critical Mass
The beautiful thing about CBD Critical Mass is that’s it’s like a professor cooked this strain up with the explicit intent of causing deep sleep. It’s the sort of thing a villain on one of those old Adam West Batman episodes would have used to take over Gotham City in the most mundane way possible. The special thing about CBD Critical Mass, as the name suggests, is the high CBD content. CBD is one of the most prevalent cannabinoids, known for its stress and pain relieving qualities. Here, it works together with the THC to offer a guaranteed and gentle route to Slumberville. A small warning: CBD Critical Mass is also known for its couch-locking effect. We therefore advise to you to clear the path to your bedroom or risk finding yourself locked in front of Storage Wars for the next four hours.
