Use this list as your starting place. Do some experimenting until you figure out precisely what strains for insomnia is right for you.
14. Granddaddy Purple
Granddaddy Purple has some impressive weed genes. It was created when breeders crossed Purple Urkle and Big Bud. Both of those are heavy hitting indicas. And Granddaddy Purple carries on the tradition well.
The combo of THC and CBG make this one a popular medical strain. And in particular, Granddaddy Purple is a go-to strain for many people dealing with sleep problems.
After smoking this strain, expect to feel a buzz in your body that will leave you relaxed and mellow. Perfect for getting ready for bed.
You’ll also enjoy the slightly fruity flavor of this strain. Think of it like the weed version of dessert.
From start to finish, this strain is a great all-around choice if you’re looking for something to help you sleep better.
When it comes to the best strains for insomnia, Kryptonite is a bit of a mixed bag. The key factor is all the THC this strain produces. While most indica strains are in the ballpark of 12%-15% THC, Kryptonite is way up around the 25% to 30% range.
If you’re new to weed, or if you’ve never smoked Kryptonite before, this strain could absolutely knock you out. And that’s good if you can’t fall asleep. But if you’re a seasoned Kryptonite toker, all that THC may actually have the opposite effect.
For some people, Kryptonite gives them some stimulating effects right alongside the sedating, calming ones. For them, this strain may lead to a contemplative, relaxed mood rather than a sleepy state.
When that happens, this strain may be more fitting for a lazy afternoon of reading, relaxing, and doing yoga than for trying to go to sleep. But either way, this strain will give you a super enjoyable body buzz. It’s worth a try.
