Most that partake in cannabis consumption have various reasons for toking up. Some prefer dabbling with sativa strains to uplift and inspire creativity, or indica strains to get a heavy high after a long day. However, it can get tricky when aiming for a specific relaxing high, but we’re here to guide you through the best cannabis strains for relaxation.
A relaxing marijuana high goes beyond sativa and indica strains but rather the combination of THC and CBD. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the non-psychoactive substance in hemp plants and often counteracts some of the stronger intoxicating effects from THC. When pairing THC and CBD together, many users find that CBD delivers a calming sensation and gives the best experience for relaxation. So what are the best weed strains for relaxing?
One of the more popular and easy to find strains, Blue Cheese weed is the cross between Cheese and Blueberry strains which make for a tasty combination. With powerful cheese and earthly tones paired with fruitful berry scents, this indica-dominant strain has medium levels of CBD and produces an outstanding body high that will help you feel extremely calm. The CBD helps level out the heavy effects indica often causes so we definitely recommend trying this strain since it’s generally easy to find at most dispensaries.
One of the most popular strains of all time and of course a must-have for veteran stoners, OG Kush is a brilliant cross between Pakistani Kush, Chemdawg, and Lemon Thai. A mostly indica-dominant strain, OG Kush has earthly and citrus flavors that come through nicely when smoked through a bong. This strain will relax your body after a long day and jumpstart your munchies as well. Overall a great high to have and why this strain is so popular to begin with, OG Kush is always a top tier choice. Actually, most OG strains are pretty relaxing so feel free to experiment with Platinum OG Kush, Lemon OG Kush for more citrusy notes or Purple OG Kush for a much heavier high.
A beautiful crossbreed between Girl Scout Cookies and OG Kush Breath, Do-Si-Dos is a gorgeous strain with lavender-colored tones packed with pungent earthly yet sweet scents of floral. Do-Si-Dos will smack you in the face but in a good way, which makes for a nicely rolled joint to truly experience that melt in your body feeling it provides. Many say Do-Si-Dos also helps with migraines and other pain relief so if you’re looking to really unwind your mind, body and soul, this is one of the best strains for pain
If you’re looking to turn your brain off and welcome the good vibes, Hells Angel OG is a good choice for treating insomnia, muscle pain, or even PTSD. A cross between OG Kush and Blackberry, this indica-dominant strain has strong earthy flavors with hidden citrus and even peppery scents to complement. It’s normal to experience quick psychoactive effects from this strain, however, it should subside and can still use this strain for a fully functional high. The Hells Angel OG strain might not be for a newbie since it’s super stoney, but an experienced cannabis user would like this especially if you have a high THC tolerance.
A pleasant strain and light in taste, Elmers Glue is a cross between Gorilla Glue #4 and The White. Similar to Hell’s OG in herbal, peppery, and citrus scents, this strain is also good for inflammation and overall relaxation. Elmer’s Glue will ease your stress, uplift your mood, and give those euphoric vibes that will have you feeling great for a good while.
Another indica-dominant hybrid, White Elephant is a cross between White Widow and Purple Elephant. This strain will give you a relaxing but energizing high which is ideal for a wake and bake situation. White Elephant has grape and berry flavors and many users say this strain has helped with symptoms of depression. This isn’t a super loud strain so you won’t have to worry about it heavily stinking up the room. You can smoke White Elephant for a minute and still get that euphoric high which makes this strain the ultimate go-to when buying in bulk. Highly recommended for the productive stoner!
No one knows the cross that makes Strawberry Fields, but it does involve Strawberry Cough which speaks for its flavorful and sweet aroma. If you’re looking for an indica-dominant high that is similar to Strawberry Cough but much more tranquil and heavy, Strawberry Fields is for you. This is a great strain for relaxing and especially treating pain and increasing appetite. Since this strain has a sativa parent this is a mild indica strain so it’s a nice high to have if you’re not used to heavy indica-based strains.
We all look forward to getting to unwind and relax after a long day and what better way than to have a nice smoke session. These strains are sure to help you set the scene for tranquility and you’ll be on your way to a stoney oasis! What is your favorite marijuana strain to relax?
