We begin with a question: What does relaxation look like to you? Are you seeking serenity in your day or settling down at night? Is relaxation relief from body aches and insomnia or easing stress, anxiety, or depression? Unwinding at day’s end or calm creativity?
Now, a few thoughts about THC percentages which, we might say, bring the party. Yet beginners or folks prone to cycling thoughts or paranoia may want to start by savoring small amounts of flower or edible, examining, exploring, assessing the effects, and then rinse and repeat if necessary.
Get Comfortable with these 5 Strains of Cannabis
Luscious, justifiably famous, and beloved for the sticky, sweet, aromatic scent and taste of a rich, ripe banana balanced with other fruit and finished with pine notes. Honey Banana Strain is delectable, and when she makes her presence known, the sensation begins with a feeling of uplifted mood followed by full-body sensations of ease and comfort, as if the weight of problems is falling off your shoulders. Moreover, Honey Banana, a 50/50 Indica and Sativa blend, is fantastic for easing pain, stress, and inhibitions while supporting delight and contentment.
OG Kush is a hybrid strain with a mystery of history. Its effects are relaxing, yet it’s a powerhouse for working through stress, depression, and migraines. With its distinctive citrus and earthy scent, this bud begins with a vivid brain bliss, followed by a euphoric, relaxed, and calm body buzz that’s long-lasting yet doesn’t tie you to the bed–unless you’re into that sort of thing; no judgment.
Yes, Strawberry Cough, hailing from the Haze family lineage, is an 80% Sativa-dominant hybrid. This gives it the ability to raise your energy and add sparkles in the guise of enhanced creativity and focus. Simultaneously, the Indica creates a sense of ease. It comes on slowly, yet the feelings of uplifting serenity continue for the length of the high. Enjoy the robust strawberry taste and aroma, which earned its moniker, giving off a signature of seductively sweet and heady smoke.
Some like it sticky when it comes to relaxation coupled with a happy, upbeat mood. OG is an award-winning bud, an Indica-dominant hybrid, created by Joesy Whales, who, some say, named the strain in honor of its ticky-tacky resinous hold on anything it touched. Others say it’s because OG has the power to glue you to the furniture with intense sofa-lock properties.
To the surprise of no one, Pink Rozay, bred by Cookies, possesses complex floral and berry notes, coupled with a bit of the sweetness of your favorite vintage rose wine. Relatively high in THC, this radiant strain effectively relieves chronic pain, stress, and insomnia. Experience an intense brain buzz united with a body of bliss and relaxation, plus feelings of comfort, sleepiness, and sometimes arousal. But, of course, you were heading to bed anyway…
The proportion is everything in using cannabis to cut through the chaos. Consider the balance between a hybrid of Indica and Sativa parenthood; between THC, CBD, CBG, and other chemical compounds working in synergistic harmony. Indica is often the go-to strain for serenity; Sativa for creativity, focus, and energy; hybrids often capture and unite the genetics of both strains’ positive characteristics.
As Thomas Jefferson observed, “Some of my finest hours have been spent on my back veranda, smoking hemp and observing as far as my eye can see.” Yes. Simply yes.
