Sleep is super important for us. Most Americans can probably testify that they do not get enough sleep every night. I usually try to get between 8 and 9 hours of sleep a night, but it doesn’t always work out that way. The truth is, we can become so busy and so worked up in our lives that we barely have enough time to get some sleep here and there. Part of this can be attributed to all of the blue light that we love to soak up from our phones, and also the large amounts of caffeine that we drink throughout the day. I love drinking coffee, and this is definitely something that greatly affects my sleeping patterns and schedules. However, for some people, not getting enough sleep is a nightly occurrence due to certain health conditions or chronic pain.
These patients can be kept awake into the early morning hours due to the symptoms of their health condition or the severity of their pain. Getting through the week can be an extreme struggle when it comes to not getting enough sleep. Also, it is worth mentioning just how ineffective and useless a lot of over the counter sleep medications can be. Plus, if you are relying on more serious medications like ambien to fall asleep, you may end up having some long term sleep problems caused by the side effects. So what’s the solution?
Well, it might be as simple as using certain marijuana strains to help you sleep better at night! After all, marijuana is used to treat so many different health conditions, it is really no surprise that it can also be used to help people sleep. Cannabis can help people with insomnia by relaxing them and helping them to feel tired, but also by relieving some of the symptoms from their health condition and chronic pain. So today, we are going to be talking about some of the most effective marijuana strains for helping people fall asleep and stay asleep.
It is important to make the distinction between certain cannabis strains when talking about sleep. The reason for this is because a lot of cannabis strains are different from each other and have very different effects. While some strains are great at helping you to fall asleep and relieve pain, others can leave you feeling very wired and energized, and that will not be helpful to fall asleep. So, in order to help educate you on the strains that are best for sleeping, I have written this article out. Indica dominant strains are generally associated with more relaxing, calming, and sleepy highs that can make you feel sensation all over your body. You may find yourself the comfiest you’ve ever been while smoking some indica dominant weed. So if you are wanting to fall asleep, these strains will be your best bet.
The first strain that you should try is called Sweet and Sour Widow. Some of you may make the connection between this and White Widow, which is a relative of this marijuana strain that is also helpful for sleeping. The reason that I bring up Sweet and Sour Widow is because of how well it balances THC and CBD that makes up this strain. Another great strain for falling asleep is called Skywalker. This strain is known for its fruity aroma and will help you drift off to sleep in no time. Plus, using these strains will help you to feel calm and euphoric as you drift off to sleep. Most people who smoke weed can attest to how well they sleep that night. However, you may experience some strange dreams!
