Cannabis: Indica Strain For Pain & Insomnia

I recently discovered a really great Indica strain called “God’s Gift.” This strain is phenomenal for both pain & insomnia. (I am not paid for promoting this)

I have both degenerative cervical disc disease (my spine is messed up) & CHRONIC insomnia. I have found great relief from this strain. Give it a try!

 

Weeeeee


According to Wikileaf:
“God’s Gift is a mix of two potent pain-relief strains – OG Kush and Granddaddy Purple. It became popular in the year 2005 with the California-area dispensaries. With a strong overripe berry smell and taste like Granddaddy Purple, this blend is a mix of about 90% Indica and 10% Sativa. It gives an instant and full-bodied feeling of euphoria which is great not only for feeling happy and relaxed, but also for treating pain symptoms like migraines and PMS.

Along with the similar taste to Grandaddy Purple, God’s Gift also has a more citrusy and lemon after tone. When grown correctly, it appears with vibrant purple hues, dense buds and should be laden with crystal like trichomes. This Indica-heavy strain leaves the user in a peaceful and dreamy daze that makes you want to hug the couch for hours at a time. It takes just a few hits to get really sleepy from this bud. Medically speaking, because of its daze like state, God’s Gift has proven helpful for dealing with pain, MS, Parkinson’s, chemotherapy, inflammation and PMS pain. This would also be a good strain for users who need a natural boost in appetite and stress relief.

God’s Gift is easy enough for beginners to grow and only has a flowering time of 8-9 weeks and yields a moderate size crop. It requires little care and attention during vegetation and will generally grow over 4 feet tall. Outdoor harvest time will be during the middle of October.

The unique difference God’s Gift has is that even while it provides a calming and trance like state, it’s not uncommon to feel extreme happiness and burst into fits of giggling and laughter. This aids in pain relief without completely immobilizing the user.”

5 Cannabis Pairings for the Perfect Night In

5 Strains Here*

1. Have the Best Board Game Night Ever With Blueberry

Board games are trendy again, which means you can invite a group of friends over to play Settlers of Catan or Ticket to Ride without feeling like a giant nerd. Board games are great because they’re both incredibly fun and relaxing, while still requiring you to use your mental energy.

For this reason, when choosing a cannabis strain to go with game night, you need something that can mellow you out, while keeping your mind sharp. Blueberry is one of the best strains for achieving this balance. This hybrid will give your mind the focus required to steal your best friend’s Boardwalk hotel, without sweating for a second over whether she’ll forgive you for it.

2. Choose Lamb’s Bread to Chill Out & Listen to Records

While we’re on the topic of retro activities that are cool again, why not try the tried-and-true evening classic of consuming some marijuana and listening to vinyl records? Cannabis truly enhances the music-listening experience. Indeed, I could write an entire article dedicated to pairing particular strains with specific music genres and artists.

But whatever your musical tastes, you can’t go wrong with the marijuana strain Lamb’s Bread. This sativa strain was reportedly Bob Marley’s favourite, and it has a high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content of 19–25%.

Lamb’s Bread is a great strain for feeling calm and introspective—just what you need when listening to vintage hits. However, the high THC component does mean that cannabis newbies may want to start off with a small dose.

3. Sit Back, Relax & Enjoy a Great Movie Night With Skunk #1

Movie night is another classic way to spend an evening in, whether you’re flying solo or hanging with others. Just like music, the cinematic experience is heightened when paired with the right cannabis strain. Skunk #1, a beloved hybrid cannabis strain, is an optimal choice for movie night for several reasons.

For one, the moderate THC content of about 14¬–19% means you can enjoy its relaxed high while still being able to follow the movie plot. If you’re passing around a joint filled with Skunk #1, the moderate THC level makes this strain easy to share with friends, who may not all have a high tolerance.

Plus, Skunk #1 is famous for inducing the munchies—and who doesn’t love a good movie paired with cannabis and popcorn?

4. Cinex Can Help You Finally Finish That Creative Project

Have you been telling your friends for years that you’re working on a novel, but still don’t have any pages to show them? Well, a night in is the perfect opportunity to finally stop putting off your grand creative ambitions and make them happen—and cannabis can definitely help.

Artists, writers and musicians have long used cannabis to help get their creative juices flowing. Cinex is a favourite for creative types, because it imparts a cerebral boost along with a nice sense of relaxation. While the THC content is high, consumers tend to find it promotes philosophical thinking and unlocks the mind’s innovative energy.

5. Use the Energizing Properties of Green Crack to Cook a New Recipe

Of course, creativity doesn’t just belong in the studio or at your desk. If you’ve always wanted to become a master chef—or just learn how to cook a new recipe—an evening with cannabis is a perfect way to get started. You could even use your night in to learn how to cook or bake cannabis edibles.

Since cooking requires equal parts creativity, concentration and energy, you’ll want a marijuana strain that promotes all of these qualities. Green Crack—its name was supposedly bestowed upon it by Snoop Dogg—is a sativa strain that has all of these properties, making it a superb choice in the kitchen.

Plus, Green Crack’s mild THC content of around 13¬–20% will (hopefully) ensure you don’t lose focus and leave your brilliant new creation in the oven for too long. But even if you do, don’t worry. Green Crack is known for its euphoric high that will help make any mishap in the kitchen seem like nothing more than a creative detour.
