With the recent change in weather, I’ve been having a ton of difficulty setting a proper sleep schedule. It feels like, all I need is a passport to sleep country sometimes. While for some it may seem easier to fall asleep when it’s dark all day, the lack of sunlight in the morning makes me super lethargic.
To compensate for my uber lack of energy during the winter (i take Vitamin D supplements and other multivitamins to no avail), I like to have a little coffee in the morning along with a nice little bowl of something sativa. This usually leads to a coffee in the afternoon and at least a cup of tea throughout the night.
I can’t really complain, because without an energy push my productivity would be abysmal, and we can’t be having any of that! What I do get in turn, however, are nights where the caffeine has decided to linger around my brain a little longer, feeling as if it’s singing songs at 1 am.
To offset the beautiful symphony my brain is composing so I could get a good night’s rest, I’ll smoke a strong indica, 45 minutes to an hour, before I call it a night. A few hits and a good book, and I’ll see you in dreamland. While most heavy indica’s will leave you “couch-locked” or feeling tired, these strains are my favourite when it’s time for sheep counting.
Strains I’ve Been Using for a Passport to Sleep Country
This heavy hitter is a classic among the cannabis community. I’ve had plenty of time to become familiar with this strain, and she’s never done me wrong. Even for the veteran smokers out there, Bubba Kush is recommended as a nightcap. This one is sure to give you the very much-needed passport to Sleep Country!
It’s called Death Bubba for a reason. This strain’s incredibly high THC level will put you in what seems like a coma. It starts off with a wave of energy flowing through you, followed by an amazing state of euphoria that’s likely to leave you in bliss. The closest Death Bubba will come to kill you is by giving you a good night’s sleep. And if this is what you need, this strain should be in your regimen.
Keeping along the Bubba lineage, Rockstar Kush is a cross of Rockstar and Bubba Kush. It boasts some pretty high THC levels, making this strain a knockout. This potent strain also comes with a pungent smell. The onset euphoria and uplifting feeling lasts quite a while as well and is followed by the need to snuggle and pass out. In other words, Rockstar Kush will have you done like Jimi Hendrix after a 4 hour concert.
If you’re looking to open up the appetite and fall into a food coma, Pink Kush has got you covered. All I can say is that Happy, Hungry, Sleepy is Pink Kush’s motto. As for myself, I love the taste of pine that shines through with hints of woody flowers. It’s also been reliable in getting me to bed quickly when I most need it.
Last but not least, Tuna Kush is a favourite among those from the west coast. The second a bag is open, the dank and diesel smell signals that you know it’s on. This thoughtful and peaceful strain will leave you with a warm, tingly sensation, followed by a heavy dose of the yawns and an 8 hour coma to top it off. Forget those sleeping pills, Tuna Kush will get you where you need to be – that warm, safe and mystical sleep country!
