If you struggle to fall asleep at the end of a long day, cannabis can help! Here are 7 strains to help you relax and unwind before bed.
1. Girl Scout Cookies Cannabis Strain
This list begins with a strain many people know and love for its deeply relaxing effects. Girl Scout Cookies (a.k.a. GSC) is an Indica dominant hybrid strain created by crossing OG Kush with Durban Poison. Commonly, this strain is found with a THC content of 20% but can reach a potency of up to 28% too making it one of the highest THC concentrated strains. If you are an occasional user, be cautious with this strain as a little bit goes a long way. The relaxing effects found from this strain are full-body, making it a perfect strain to unwind after a long day.
2. Relax with White Fire Alien OG
Next on this list is another Indica dominant cannabis strain. White Fire Alien OG is a blend of The White and Fire Alien Kush, creating a strain perfect for maximum relaxation. This strain has on average a THC level of 20-26%. Users will notice the effects start by calming the mind and transcending you into a state of pure bliss. Or, perhaps launching you into outer space? After all, it is an alien strain. The high then invades the rest of your body, making you feel heavy as you sink into the couch. You may want to move to your bed quickly before you fall asleep!

3. Hit the Cookie Jar Before Bed
Cookie Jar is a cross between number 1 and number 2 on the list. The name Cookie Jar is fitting as this strain will surely present the tasty aroma of freshly baked cookies and the mouthwatering flavor too; making you want to repeatedly reach “in the cookie jar” for more! Commonly found with a THC content level of 24%, this strain will hit you with a wave of relaxation by combining a pure body high from GSC with the alternating mind and body highs of the White Fire Alien OG. Similarly to the latter, in due time this strain will have you crashing hard just as you crawl into bed.
4. Unwind with Granddaddy Purple
Grandaddy Purple (a.k.a. GDP) is another popular strain, blending the classic Big Bud with Purple Urkle. GDP is a hybrid strain that is much heavier on the Indica side; meaning it will get you “In da couch” in no time. The 18-25% THC content here is a little lower than the others on this list, but because of the Indica effects, it will surely get the job done. Grandaddy Purple is another great go-to before bed as the cerebral effects will help calm you down, or even numb some of the stress away from the workday. In no time, you will feel a deep sense of relaxation as your worries fade away. Or, maybe your ability to remember the worries fade away? This strain will surely knock you out, so get yourself into bed nice and early as your granddaddy would.
5. Afghan Kush to Sleep
Next on the list, we have Afghan Kush. This is a pure Indica strain originating from the Hindu Kush mountain ranges somewhere between Afghanistan and Pakistan. This strain has been around the world and has been perfected over the centuries. With a THC content of only 17%, it is the lowest on this list. However, despite the lower level of THC it is still very potent and highly praised for its sedating effects. As an Indica, this strain is working directly with the body by getting you nice and relaxed before slipping into bed. This is a great strain for those who may experience anxiety from the psychoactive effects caused by THC since the content level is much lower.
