We all know that Marijuana has been used to treat insomnia for thousands of years, but with the regulations on the recreational shops and restrictions on advice, this guide will be able to help you if you’re having problems hitting the hay.
Because marijuana is a Schedule 1 Controlled substance, there is no clinical evidence on the interactions between THC and other cannabinoids like cannabidiol and cannbinol on the brain. The only way to find out which strains are best is through some good old fashion smoke sessions. I have taken the liberty to do that for you. With out further ado here are our top five strains to help with sleep in no particular order, FOR SCIENCE!
1. Grand Daddy Purple
A NorCal classic! A mix between Big Bud and Urkle. This bad boy has been knocking out hippies since the summer of love. Sweet tasting and beautiful to look at. Let daddy rock you to sleep tonight!
2. Skywalker OG
OG Kush spliced heavy with the Mazar and Blueberry Kush. Tastes like hash with a hint of pine. If your looking to ride the Millennium Falcon through hyperspace this is your ticket.
Being sativa dominate with closer to a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD, ACDC is great acting pain reliever as well as helping with sleep. Deriving from a Cannatonic strain, this is the Doctor of weed. It has been used to help fight cancer cells in its concentrated form, help prevent seizures, multiple sclerosis, and is great for cancer patients and their appetite. Truly a gift to mankind.
4. Gorilla Glue
The first place winner of the 2014 L.A. Cannabis cup is derived from Chemsis, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. With a sweet pungent smell and smooth taste this dense fatty will have you drifting off to the nether voids of sleep faster than a punch from a gorilla to the face.
5. U-Dub Purp
A legendary northwest strain that was first brought to light by the University of Washington’s Cancer institute in the 70s. Legend has it this strain was so potent and sought after the janitor snipped clones of this purple dawg before the state scrapped the project and sold them for $ 1,000 a piece. Thanks to him we still have this godfather Indica to give us peace of mind for cancer patients, insomniacs, and stoners alike.
