It’s not all that uncommon to struggle with sleep from time to time. Almost everyone has suffered a restless night. For millions of Americans, though, falling asleep and staying asleep can feel more like an impossible challenge than a rare occurrence. While there are medications you can take, both prescription and over-the-counter options often come with unwanted side effects. Cannabis offers a more natural alternative. If you’re looking to try cannabis for your sleep issues, here’s what you need to know about Indicas for better sleep.

Indica for sleep

What Is an Indica Strain?

If you’ve ever looked at a dispensary menu before, you’ve likely noticed that most plants and products fall into one of three categories – Indica, Sativa, and hybrid. Indicas are those that are known for their relaxing, sedating properties. As such, they’re often the go-to for individuals dealing with insomnia. 

Traits of an Indica Plant

Indica cannabis strains are generally shorter and bushier plants. The leaves also have shorter, wider points on them. People often turn to them for nighttime use because they tend to be the ones that produce a body high that relaxes and sedates users. So Indicas have the potential to help you to get the sleep you’ve been craving. 

Get Your Zs With These Indicas

There are many Indicas on the market and with so much selection it can be overwhelming. Here are a few of the best for sleep:

Bubba Kush

Bubba Kush is a mostly Indica-dominant hybrid with a high that starts in the head. It quickly transforms into more of the expected body high, though. It offers relaxation and ease, both of which can make it easier for you to wind down and fall asleep. 

Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple is a somewhat Indica-dominant hybrid that hits your head first before your body. Once it gets to your core, however, you get more of the familiar Indica body buzz. It can help to promote relaxation and sleep. It’s also great for pain management, to relieve the pain that can hinder quality sleep. The thing to keep in mind with this strain, however, is that it is potent. If you’re a novice user, you might want to limit yourself to a very small amount. Too much could leave you with racing and paranoid thoughts that can deter your efforts for better sleep.

Sweet and Sour Widow

Many Indica strains are known for having higher amounts of THC, a cannabinoid known for promoting sleep. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, those sensitive to THC may not be able to reap the full benefits. Instead, Sweet and Sour Widow offers a more balanced CBD to THC ratio. The CBD helps to temper the effects of THC, making the plant more manageable. And, there’s still enough THC to help you relax, unwind, and fall asleep. 

Indicas for a Better Night’s Sleep

If you’re struggling with insomnia, a good night’s sleep can feel like nothing more than a far-away dream. With an Indica strain of cannabis, however, you can finally get the rest you’ve been craving. These strains can sedate you and help you to feel more relaxed. You’re more likely to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, which means you get to wake up feeling more rested and refreshed.
