Smoking cannabis can offer a reprieve after a long, stressful day. Work deadlines, bills, and other commitments can take a toll if left unchecked. Thankfully, the cannabis plant serves as a rich source of molecules that help the body and mind to unwind.

THC helps us to sit back and relax. This psychotropic cannabinoid allows us to look at life with the bigger picture in mind. CBD, on the other hand, helps to subtly soothe the body and take the edge off—with no high. Then there are terpenes, aromatic chemicals that add an extra layer of relaxation and bliss to the cannabis experience.

For many people, smoking a joint or hitting a bowl does the trick. For others, going for a walk or engaging in yoga after consuming cannabis helps them tap into a peaceful state of mind. Interestingly, meditation and exercise innately engage the endocannabinoid system—the same network activated by weed—to produce these blissful sensations.

Check out the best weed strains to experience a well-deserved break from stress.

1. Cookies Gelato

Cookies Gelato derails stress and rumination instantly. This feminized powerhouse slams the body and mind with an exceptional THC level of 28%. A single toke from a joint will send a warm and comforting feeling over your entire body. Your mood will elevate, your appetite will increase, and you’ll feel undeniably content.

The business of life usually makes us feel guilty for sitting down and doing nothing. Cookies Gelato fixes this issue. You’ll feel fine doing whatever it is you want to do. Listen to music, watch a great film, or simply chill out with friends and talk about the universe.

A delicious terpene profile accompanies enormous levels of THC. These chemicals infuse every hit with pleasant tastes of citrus, earth, fruit, and mint. It goes without saying that these buds go down great in edibles and extracts for this reason.

Above all, this 50/50 sativa/indica is easy to grow. She maintains a medium height throughout her life cycle and churns out a big harvest at the end. Indoor plants grow to 90–130cm and produce up to 600g/m² after a flowering time of 8–9 weeks. Plants grown outdoors reach a taller height of 180cm. They prefer a mild climate and produce between 600–650g/plant. Prepare to harvest your crop in mid-October.
