chilling out

Marijuana has almost certainly been associated with the art of chilling out for thousands of years. For time immemorial it has been used by humans looking to kick back and relax after a long day out hunting for food or the activity’s modern-day equivalent – working in the office!

If you’re a seasoned weed smoker, though, you’ll know that not all strains are equal when it comes to how relaxed they make you feel. Much of this variation has to do what proportion of indica or sativa a strain of bud has in it.

While smoking sativa-dominated strains will leave you feeling energetic and talkative, indica strains contain a blend of cannabinoids and terpenes that will induce a more relaxing and chilled-out high, making them the preferred choice for people looking to seriously unwind after a stressful day.

Here is a list of some of the best indica strains that will have you at-one with your comfy sofa before you know what’s hit you. The good news is that since cannabis is legal in Canada, finding good weed online is very easy. A quick search will show a variety of top quality online dispensaries to choose from.


  1. Northern Lights

Northern Lights is an old favorite for weed connoisseurs the world over. Its distinctive sweet scent would be completely overpowering were it not for its slight spicy aftertaste. Northern Lights is 90% sativa and has up to 18% THC, a mixture that gives the strain its famous soporific effect. Smoke enough and the couch will be your home for the next hour or so at least.

  1. Granddaddy Purple

There are not too many strains of weed that are 100% sativa, but Granddaddy Purple is one of them. Characterized by its notable purple buds, this strain has a THC content of up to a whopping 23%. Its gorgeously thick smoke leads to a state of complete mental and physical relaxation, but you’ll still be able to get a few things done as the lighter high can be uplifting and motivating.

  1. Skywalker Blue

There are few more strikingly beautiful examples of the marijuana plant anywhere than the flowers of the Skywalker Blue strain. Lightly dusted with crystals, its electric blue and purple buds contain a THC content which is off the charts at up to 26%. When smoked, it induces a powerful full-body high the results in a sensation of that you’re being engulfed by rolling waves of serenity.

  1. Afghan

Another strain which is 100% indica is Afghan. Famous for its dense, tightly-packed buds which ooze oils and resin, Afgan produces a pungent earthy flavor which is full of sweet overtones. At 20% TCH content, it’s powerful enough to produce a heady high, but will not completely sedate you, allowing you to go about your business without the same drowsy feelings of some of the other strains on this list.

  1. Blueberry

With its sweet and fruity taste and its relatively low THC content (up to 16%), Blueberry is the archetypal ‘session’ weed. It has a high CBD content which helps to calm every sinew and muscle in the body, lifting the mood whilst relieving any aches and pains that you might have.

  1. Blue Cheese

Blue Cheese has one of the most distinctive tastes of any strain of marijuana. It is easily distinguishable for the cheesy aroma of its smoke from which it takes its name. With a THC content of 19% and a CBD content of 2%, Blue Cheese is known for its long-lasting heavy high which overpowers any sense of anxiety or stress that may be bothering you.


There is little better reward for a hard day’s work than sitting back to enjoy a joint or two. If it’s relaxation you’re after, the six strains of indica described above will do the trick just perfectly.
