When you hear “the best cannabis strains for stress,” you might think: all of them? But some hybrids of the multi-use plant are way better than others at quelling your insomnia, boredom, and more. Check out some of our favorites.
A true marijuana classic, Blue Dream certainly lives up to its name. Described as “legendary” by Leafly, you know what you’re getting into when you smoke this.
In case you can’t figure it out, I’m talking about major relaxation, right on par with a deep tissue massage, an extra four hours of sleep, or a half hour in the Jacuzzi. With Blue Dream, you’re always in good, destress-central hands.
If Green Crack were anything like its namesake, you wouldn’t feel too relaxed after medicating with it. Fortunately, the only thing this strain has in common with crack is that it won’t put you on couchlock.
As a sativa, Green Crack is a fave among chronic anxiety and pain patients, who turn to the strain for daytime relief that won’t shoot ’em out into the stratosphere.
Stress, begone! Without making us pass out first.
Girl Scout Cookies
Ah, the sweet taste of Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties. (Those ones always sell out first when the Girl Scouts come a-knockin’.)
But wait! I’m not talking about cookies; I’m talking about “cookies.” The leafy green version of these meds may relax you even more than their carby counterpart, considering that there’s no way it’ll give you a sugar crash. (The high remains.)
Silver Haze is a hybrid, but a sativa-heavy one, so much like Blue Dream you’ll retain most of your mental clarity when you medicate with it.
This particular little strain is a mix of Haze, Northern Lights, and Skunk, so rest assured — the smell itself will make your stress melt away. Not to mention the uplifting high that’ll leave you wanting to create something.
