The Best Medical Marijuana Strains for Sleep and Insomnia

Best Cannabis Strain for Sleep and Insomnia

If falling asleep is hard for you, know you’re not alone. Sleep is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally, but unfortunately, insomnia is very common among adults.

Tips for Using Medical Marijuana!

We have put together a list of sedating strains so you have an idea of what to look for on your first visit to the dispensary! But first, here are some tips to keep in mind.

THC strains of marijuana are typically the most effective for sleep aid. However, every person is different, and your preferences may change after speaking with your doctor. If THC agrees with your body and doesn't cause unpleasant side effects, a THC dominant strain may be your best bet for sedating effects.

If you happen to experience anxiety from high-THC strains, make sure you try taking less of it. A light dose of THC can float you to sleep, but larger doses create anxiety for some patients. You may want to try a strain higher in CBD if you're sensitive to THC. Our doctor will help you find the best strain for you, and you can always try something different later on.

Another thing to consider is taking an edible. For many patients, edibles help you stay asleep longer. Inhaling cannabis yields faster effects, but edibles last a lot longer.

List of Strains Commonly Used to Treat Symptoms

Tahoe OG Kush

Tahoe OG Kush tends to give effects that are heavier than your average OG Kush hybrid. Medical Marijuana patients in other states have found that Tahoe OG is a godsend for many insomniacs! Vaporizing this strain can yield fast-acting effects, allowing your muscles to relax and easing that need to roll around in your blankets all night.

Granddaddy Purple

It would be a crime to leave this classic off any list touting top sleepy strains. Not only is it widely used, but Granddaddy Purple also exhibits high levels of myrcene, a terpene commonly believed to provide relaxing effects.

Godʼs Gift

Godʼs Gift is indeed a gift to insomnia sufferers, as the stress keeping you up at night is overpowered by a surefooted sense of peace. With notes of berry and citrus, God's gift will lift your mood while your body sinks.


With virtually no THC in its chemical makeup, Remedy is for consumers who oppose the high. CBD-dominant strains, like Remedy, can help you sleep by relieving pain, anxiety, stress, and other symptoms that fuel insomnia. It’s okay to oppose the high feeling because CBD products still help!

9 Pound Hammer

Crushing insomnia like a war hammer, this no-nonsense strain is perfect for insomniacs who can't escape the prison of their mind while lying in bed. 9 Pound Hammer’s mild fruity flavors of ripe berry and grapes are just another reason to love this insomnia-crusher.
