Sometimes the only thing you want to do after a long hard day is to sit back and unwind. Fortunately, you can get this feeling from different cannabis strains with varying effects.
Relaxing cannabis strains typically have an Indica-dominant genetic makeup and a balanced THC/CBD ratio. You can unwind mentally while avoiding the couch-lock effect by using strains with more CBD than THC. However, if you want a more sedating feeling you should look for Indica-dominant strains with more THC than CBD.
Let’s check the best cannabis strains that will help you unwind and offer you a relaxed body high.
The best hybrid strain for its relaxing, joyful, and giggly effects is OG Kush with a unique terpene profile and strong aroma. An Indica-dominant strain, OG Kush has a 23% average THC concentration. OG Kush gives you an almost immediate high that leaves you feeling relaxed and sleepy. Its impact persists for several hours before fading and it’s a great strain for stress relief.
Due to its capacity for a potent head and body high, Blue Dream, a tasty strain created by crossing Blueberry and Haze, has become a mainstay among the cannabis community. Initially, you’ll experience a rush of euphoria that causes any tension to be released. Then you’ll feel a physical sensation that relaxes the muscles and unwinds your mind. After a stressful day, Blue Dream is the ideal relaxing go-to solution.
Ice Cream Cake
Ice Cream Cake is an Indica-dominant hybrid produced by crossing Wedding Cake and Gelato 33, with a high THC content of around 20–25%. The aroma and flavor of the Ice Cream Cake are equally as relaxing as its high. It starts with a surge of mental effects that clears your mind of all worries, leaving you happy and relaxed. Furthermore, it gives off a calming body high that can make you feel couch-locked, so use it with caution.
This strain is an Indica cross of Afghanistan, Mendo Purps, and Skunk that is well-known for its powerful muscle-relaxing effects, making it one of the favorite ones among those looking for stress relief. With potent effects for both mind and body, it is simple to understand why Granddaddy Purple is a rising favorite among people seeking relief from anxiety and pain given its high THC level, which is around 25% on average.
Bubba Kush is created by crossing OG Kush and Northern Lights and it is an Indica-dominant classic strain. This cultivar’s potent hash-like flavor and scent, along with hints of sweetness and earthiness, will calm all kinds of stoners. Bubba Kush has earned a well-known reputation as a multi-award-winning strain and certainly lives up to it, especially when it comes to the calming and soothing effects of its high.
Black Cherry OG
For the correct reasons, Black Cherry OG Kush is one of the best marijuana strains for relaxation. Black Cherry OG produces a high that is both uplifting and calming once it enters your lungs giving you a stoned state of mind and body. Note that it may produce a strong couch-lock effect when consumed at high doses. Although the THC content of this strain has never been precisely measured, it is widely believed to range from 12% to 18%, which is excellent for a novice who wants to try something a bit more challenging.
