Some people smoke weed to give their step a little momentum at the beginning of the day, and others smoke it because it clears their mind in the middle of a hectic afternoon. But people mostly use cannabis to relax.
Tons of varieties have relaxing properties, so choosing one can be a little daunting. Always remember that the effects of cannabis are relative to each individual's body, and what works for you may not work for others. These suggestions are based on the most commonly reported effects from these strains.
Here are 5 of our best suggestions for getting cloudy and lazy.
Buy weeds when picking up or delivering leaves.
Northern Lights is a direct classic. When it comes to relaxing cannabis strains to get lazy, there aren't too many with a better reputation than NL. This strain comes from Afghani and Thai landrace strains and is considered one of the original indications that is characterized by its ease of growing in a variety of environments.
With a few sniffs you will probably discover pepper notes buried under a mostly sweet and earthy aroma. The taste is more the same and the effects are more relaxed and happy, which leads to a pleasant lazing around, which usually leads to a surprising nap.
Northern Lights is one of the most famous cannabis strains in the world, so you can definitely find it in a nearby pharmacy. The knobs are usually tight and extremely resin-coated. So make sure you have a grinder on hand.
GSC, also known as Girl Scout Cookies, is a powerful strain that lasts so long that you don't want to leave your couch. It's perfect for those who want to go high and watch the latest FX Original series or the latest Netflix movie.
A cross between OG Kush and Durban Poison, GSC flowers, exude a sweet funk and an earthy taste that screams, "Hey, Kush genetics matter!" Cookies are usually referred to as a variety that that can promote creativity. They will also create a silly euphoria that goes well with sitting around and not much else.
Grab these logs when picking up or delivering leaves
If you are looking for a weed strain that you can smoke while listening to some melodies, Gelato is the answer. It has a well-known reputation for relaxing a lot and saving a little time. This is exactly how you want to feel while the UE MegaBoom releases Drake's latest album on your bedside table.
Gelato, also known as Larry Bird, is one of the Cookie Fam's most popular productions and crosses Sunset Sherbert and Thin Mint. The result is a prominently purple and white flower with a sweet, earthy and gaseous taste that sometimes has a fruity and dessert-like effect.
Some strains can help you relax by letting you fall asleep straight away, with little consideration for anything else. In this area, Blackberry Kush is an absolute skeptic who could probably get Zzzquil out of business.
This cross between Afghani and Blackberry produces nugs that are so purple that they sometimes appear black. From these nugs comes a mixture of sweet berry aromas, which are underlaid with a slightly sour tartness on the back of the tongue.
If you are not very experienced with cannabis, avoid this strain, as it will most likely be a bit overwhelming for beginners.
Remedy is a special proposal for those who want to relax without being overwhelmed by THC. It is one of the most popular CBD strains and one of the few that are growing as indicators.
This cross of Canatonic and Afghan skunk has a reputation for soft relaxation in the body, which is why so many medical marijuana patients seek it for various diseases. In addition, it has a great taste of sweet and earthy flavors, especially when it is vaporized as an oil.
Although you don't get much THC from Remedy, its therapeutic properties are still great for those who want to relax and be a bit lazy.
