Do we think a cheesy tasting bud sounds delicious? We do not. Luckily, Blue Cheese owes its name more to its parentage than its flavor. A cross of Blueberry and Cheese, this strain has a tasty berry flavor on the exhale without any pervasive cheese funk.
Unlike the squares at Gorilla Glue, it looks like the makers of The Great Grape Ape Show are chill with sharing their name with a strain of weed. Although maybe that’s because the two have a common audience in lazy stoners, so the shared name benefits everyone. Insomniacs will appreciate the 100 percent indica strain, especially the THC composition that can be as high as 25 percent. Grape Ape delivers on a profound body high that starts slowly and develops over time to cause a heavy feeling in a user’s limbs. It is a full body stone coupled with a spaced-out mindset that makes falling asleep and staying asleep easy peasy. If chronic pain, muscle aches, stress, anxiety, or depression are contributing to poor sleep, this strain is perfect for replacing them all with a foggy relaxation.

Sleep is important. There are dozens of studies indicating that it leads to better health. It can also be deeply pleasurable — who doesn’t like to feel cozy? But at least 30% of adults can’t enjoy these benefits. For a variety of reasons, many of us spend each night working through every position we can comfortably contort our bodies into, with no shut-eye to show for it. Our eyes are red with exhaustion but the minute we lie down and close them our minds begin working through a list of stressors and fears.

G-13 isn’t a very sweet strain, so it takes a user with a more mature palate to really appreciate the woody pine flavor and the earthy undertone. It goes over well with people who like a fragrant mug of black tea without any sweetener or cream.
Do you like your weed to come with a side of urban legend? Then, this is the strain for you. There are tales about the CIA, FBI, and other agencies gathering the best cannabis strains from breeders across the globe in the late 1960s. They used these strains to begin crafting mega hybrids at a super-secret research facility at the University of Mississippi. A man named Neville Schoenmaker convinced someone to bring him a cutting, and G-13 was chosen because it was the most stable. He then got to growing and distributing this powerhouse to the masses. This strain is generally 70 percent indica and 30 percent sativa with 27 percent THC composition. That’s heavy stuff — perfect for making users lazy and lethargic before knocking them right out for the night.
When the creators of Ace of Spaces designed the strain, they crossed Black Cherry Soda with Jack the Ripper as a way of making weed that was a bit sweet and sour. It worked. It also created a 60 percent indica leaning hybrid with a THC composition as high as 20 percent. Because it is both an indica and a sativa, the high affects both body and mind, but it certainly leans toward the physical. Along with intense relaxation, the effects also include a euphoria that can cause giggle fits, so users should be prepared for intense happiness before sleep arrives. This joy is especially beneficial for people whose sleeplessness has led to anxiety about going to bed. It makes the time between smoking and snoring feel safe and pleasant.

Think of a strain that mimics someone reading the best bedtime story ever. Forget Audible, get high.

Whether the problem is falling asleep or staying asleep, these weed strains offer a safe and fun solution.
