Marijuana is slowly being accepted in society as we know it and studies regarding this herb are becoming increasingly intense and complex. After years of study and research, we can now finally put a lot of myths regarding this plant at bay and can give factual and proof-based arguments on various topics. A very common misconception that needed to be cleared was that all marijuana strains have a tendency to calm the mind and relax your body. We now know that it is mostly the Indica strains that provide such an effect whereas most of the Sativa strains give a rather uplifting and energetic high to the user. So let’s dive into it and discuss 5 Indica strains that can help you feel relaxed.
A strain that almost mimics the famous ‘girl scout cookies’ strain, it is believed to be an 85% Indica strain. Smokers have described this strain to have a sweet aroma. The effect is rather quick and relaxes the mind with a typical Indica effect. The soothing effect can also be felt on the user’s body.
If you want to feel at ease you would obviously go for an Indica dominant strain but one of the most relaxing strains out there is the Strawberry Cough. It is a rather unusual strain because it is 80% Sativa dominant and has a high THC percentage of 23%. If you are an experienced smoker only then will you be able to feel its actual effect. Newbies might as well feel energetic or even paranoid after smoking this strong herb. The name ‘strawberry cough’ is coined not just because it has an aroma of strawberry but also because it can make even the most experienced user cough after a proper puff.
A hybrid backcross of the Golden Leaf strain is a particularly interesting one. A balance of 70% Indica and 30% Sativa, guava cake strain is known to calm the mind down and drift the user into a peaceful sleep. The earthy and fruity aroma gives an interesting kick to many users. The hit is intense and first time smokers need to take it slow.
Willy’s Wonder is a magical Indica-dominant strain that has been at the center of debate for many. This strain is hard to understand as it has a whopping THC content between 24% – 30%. Experienced users have been surprised by this strain and have claimed that it gives a rather energetic high in the first few minutes but after a while, a weave of calmness spreads across the mind and body. This strain ends up making a person so relaxed that it is almost surprising to the user after the initial energetic high.
One of the most famous strains of Marijuana and also a proposed ‘king strain’ this particular variety has been in the market since 1978. Even though it is only 65% Indica dominant, it still has a mesmerizingly calming effect. This includes the traits of Colombian Gold, Acapulco Gold and Afghani strain. The CBD content is quite low which keeps the psychoactivity at bay and focuses on calming the user.
There are many other strains in the market that might claim to offer the calming effect that you desire. Selecting a strain based on its effects is quite a personal choice in the end as many strains affect different users in a different manner.
