There’s nothing like a good Indica for relaxation, and allowing you to ease into a good night’s rest. In fact, cannabis has a wide range of beneficial effects on sleep. Here is a list of 5 of the most prominent sleep benefits, backed by scientific studies.
1. Fall asleep faster
Using cannabis in moderate amounts before bedtime is better than chamomile tea. A study in 1973 found that THC reduced the time it took subjects to fall asleep by an hour on average. Moderation is key, as researchers found that too high a dose could counteract the effect.
Also taken into consideration is the strain used, as sativas can have an uplifting, energetic effect, most suitable for earlier in the day. The best strains to smoke are relaxing indicas, but not enough to leave you couch locked and lost in thought.
