People use cannabis for a variety of reasons. One of the most common is to alleviate pain. Others use it to relax at the end of a long day or for a little help falling asleep. The thing is, not all strains help you to achieve the same goals. Some help to increase creativity and energy, while others help you unwind and sleep. Here, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular cannabis strains for nighttime use.

1. Blue Cheese

Blue Cheese is an Indica-dominant hybrid between Blueberry and Cheese. With a THC content ranging from 15% to 20%, it isn’t the strongest strain around, but it’s still very effective. The high creeps up on you, bringing with it a gradual physical relaxation. It mellows you out, promoting relaxation and destressing without locking you to the couch (unless you consume a large dose). It’s an excellent choice for easing aches and pains. Therefore, it’s one of the most popular strains for counteracting insomnia.


2. Bubba Kush

If you’re looking for a strain to help you fall asleep, Bubba Kush may be just what you need. It’s an Indica-dominant strain that features a THC content of 15% to 22%. While the initial high starts in the head, you eventually feel the effects in your body. It offers a strong, soothing body high that eases muscle tension and anxiety so that you can relax and fall asleep.

3. Critical Kush

An Indica-dominant cross between OG Kush and Critical Mass, Critical Kush is one of the most popular cannabis strains for those looking to get some sleep. The strain features a THC content of 25% with very little CBD. The high hits your head first, but it quickly turns into a body high that cements you to the couch or bed and lulls you to sleep.

4. Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple is one of the most famous Indica strains. It’s a cross between Purple Urkel and Big Bud with a THC content between 15% and 19%. Users know this strain for its euphoric head high and relaxing body effects that can help to lessen pain, anxiety, and stress. It can help you to relax and unwind at the end of a long day.

5. Northern Lights

Northern Lights is another well-known Indica strain. With a THC content of up to 33%, it’s also the most potent one on this list. It doesn’t take much to feel the effects of this strain. In the body, you’ll feel a pleasantly numb, lazy sensation. A sense of happiness accompanies the body high. Due to the high THC content, Northern Lights can be a bit too strong for novice users, even in lower doses, so exercise caution with this one.
