Black Mamba
Black Mamba will almost always put users to sleep, inevitably robbing them of energy, wit and fucks to give. Luckily, its sedating effects aren’t as selfish, creating at least an hour of stupid bliss and wanderlust before you become a sloth. Anxiety, stress, eating and sleeping disorders, minor pain, nausea and headaches have all been treated by the strain.

Nurse Jackie
True to its name, Nurse Jackie’s a healer. Her high is uplifting and manageable while relaxing the body and stomach at the same time, making it an obvious choice for those who have pain or trouble eating in the morning.

Ghost Train Haze
This strain delivers effects similar to other sativa heavyweights, bringing shots of energy and a case of the munchies, but possible paranoia, too. Medical patients use it for pain, lack of appetite, exhaustion and stress. Creatives use it in low doses for an inspirational rush.

Blue Dragon
While Blue Dragon's initial uplifting effects might fool users into continually smoking it or expecting an all-day rush, that spike will turn into a calm state of stupidity very quickly. The bubbly euphoria, while short-lived, makes this a great nighttime strain if you're prepared to fall asleep soon.


Chernobyl
Good for minor mental disorders, depression and stress, Chernobyl provides a calming but powerful head high that also helps with stomach issues. For recreational purposes, Chernobyl is fine for relaxation without exhaustion, as users can still have energy — albeit somewhat unfocused — despite the overwhelming euphoria.

Skunkberry
Skunkberry starts with smooth, uplifting effects without haziness or jitters. Perfect for lunchtime, the high typically amplifies appetites within thirty minutes and won’t stop until adequately satisfied, so be prepared to eat — and sleep, because Blueberry’s indica downfall can wipe out new users. Medical benefits can treat stress, lack of appetite and muscle aches.

Kong
Kong is generally labeled an indica or indica-dominant hybrid, but I usually enjoy it as a daytime strain — though I can see how it could put low-tolerance users to sleep after a couple of hours. Its relaxing traits don't drain energy, and its visual, cerebral effects still allow me to stay focused. Kong also relaxes the stomach, making it an option for combating nausea, eating disorders, muscle spasms and stress. And hangovers...
