Mercury is in retrograde (again!), so life is probably throwing you curveballs from every direction. Since this galactic pain in the derrière also tends to affect your electronics, you might be out a device or two, or have lost that super important (unsaved) presentation that’s been keeping you up late. All that stress and screen time also means you’re probably not sleeping well as a result.

Luckily for you, today is World Sleep Day and to celebrate that and help you get out of this retro slump, we have curated a list of top indica-dominant strains to help you chill the heck out and maybe catch a Z or two.

Bonus: if you haven’t already, check out our mental health booster podcast to balance the chaos with some mindful meditation. Go Ahead, you deserve breathe some zen into your life.

Important takeaway: since everyone has a unique biochemistry and endocannabinoid system, what works for one might not work for the other. These strain recommendations are based purely on personal preference and should not be taken as medical advice. You’ll need to experiment to see which strain works best for you.


Pink Kush

A solid choice to help you catch those z’s without question. Also, the name is pretty and gives the impression that you’re about to dive into a comfy bed to cuddle with fluffy kittens.

CBD Critical Mass

This 1:1 is ideal for seeking the therapeutic benefits of a CBD:THC, allowing you to get relief while minimizing the heavy psychoactive effects. Personal favourite!

Blueberry Kush

Smells great and hits the spot – another classic that will make you forget all about which planet is winning the race.

Death Bubba

Guaranteed to get you past the counting sheep phase before your head even hits the pillow. Just be sure you set your alarm to go off a bit louder than usual because waking up will be a challenge.

Northern Lights

When you’ve had enough and you’re ready to retire the day, it’s lights out with this strain. Classic and timeless, just like sleep.
