Though summertime might mean beach days and hanging out with buddies, many of us still carry around stress. And after a long day at the office or a busy day, you might be thinking about how you’re going to wind down and relax. That’s where Indica strains come in.
Now, everyone uses different methods to relax. Some people enjoy having a few beers after work and others prefer to go on a long walk followed with some deep breathing. While those methods are certainly great for helping you relax, sometimes you just want to smoke some weed and relax away with an Indica strain.
For good reason too! They’re known for their relaxing moods and heavy sedation. Perfect for people who have difficulty falling asleep or often feel stressed or anxious.

Now that weed is becoming more acceptable, there’s a lot of new stoners that are finding out that marijuana can be very helpful for them and that it contains healing properties and benefits.
What’s great is that there are plenty of resources out there with information about new strains and new ways to smoke. For the spontaneous stoners that like to try new things, check out a cannabis subscription box like Cannabox for rotating monthly themes and new products and accessories for new highs and adventures.
As you may be learning, there are many different ways to smoke your weed depending on the mood and occasion. If you’re at the beach with some buddies maybe joints would be easier. But if you’re inside ready to watch a movie then some bong hits will have you couch-locked and fully immersed.
