Because of the body high and relaxing effects they tend to give, indicas and indica-leaning hybrids of cannabis strains are your best choice for warming up after a few hours in frigid temperatures. They relax rigid joints, warm up the chest and get your stomach ready for a hot meal. Don't believe me? Try any one of these ten winter indicas by the fire and see for yourself.
The name speaks for itself: LSD produces one helluva body high, melting away aches and stress — or making users forget about them, at least. An intense cerebral uplift can leave users spacey, with a tendency to zone in on whatever is directly in front of them. The head high will transform into a body melt within an hour or so, though, so get your pajamas on ASAP.

A classic indica, it gives users instant elation with little focus. Heavy potency makes it an after-hours strain for most, as concentration, wit, motor skills and virtually all functionality go out the window. This is a great choice for bedtime and for medical patients, however, as its powerful effects can treat anxiety, chronic pain, depression, eating disorders, insomnia and less important ailments like boredom.
Blackberry Kush’s deserved popularity comes from its sleeper status and sweet berry flavor — a trait that’s hard to find among such heavy indicas.

It’s not a quick knockout, like Bubba Kush, but more of a gentle lulling to sleep.
