5 Best Cannabis Strains for Insomnia in Las Vegas

They say that New York is the city that never sleeps, but honestly?

New York’s got nothing on Las Vegas. This town is truly open 24/7!

But just because the lights never go out in Vegas doesn’t mean you should be staying up all night too.

You need your sleep. And if you’re battling insomnia, cannabis can be a big help in your fight to stop counting sheep and start catching some shut-eye.

Here are the 5 best cannabis strains for insomnia in Las Vegas!

1. Black Afghan

We all know how difficult it is to fall asleep when your mind is racing a mile a minute.

Fortunately, the heavy indica Black Afghan can help slow things down faster than you can say, ”Black Afghan!”

The head high will come first, instantly putting you in a nice, relaxed state as you savor that peppery, piney flavor.

Once your mind has properly mellowed out, the body high will come next, helping you melt into your mattress and sleep like a baby.


2. Granddaddy Purple

We recommend Granddaddy Purple for anxiety, but if you struggle with insomnia, you also can’t go wrong with Granddad.

Users report a head high with a mild couch-lock effect once you initially smoke this sweet- tasting strain.

But as time goes on, the euphoria decreases and the couch-lock intensifies. Before you know it, the Sandman will be there with an extra ticket to Never-Never Land.


3. Skywalker

Anyone who’s suffered from insomnia knows what a monster it can be. Kinda like the Wampa. Or the Rancor. Or the Sarlacc Pit.

See where we’re going with this?

Oh yes. It’s time to unleash your inner Jedi Knight to defeat this monster for good!

Like Yoda says, the Force is a powerful ally. And so is Skywalker, an indica dominant-hybrid that packs a MIGHTY wallop.

You can expect a nice head buzz and intense relaxation, so go easy on the dosage here.

Oh, and once you arrive in Cloud City, tell Lando we said, “Hi.”



Sometimes, less is more.

And sometimes, more is more.

XXX OG is to insomnia what a shark is to a minnow; it’ll swallow it whole.

This mega-indica strain took home the 2014 Los Angeles Cannabis Cup. Be sure to enjoy those earthy, piney, lemon notes while you’re still awake to taste them!


5. Venom OG

They say a little venom can actually be good for you.

So when it comes to sleepless night, Venom OG might really be good for you.

This dense, piney, lemony, skunky, diesel-y, smelling bud has the potential to take down your insomnia with the fury of a thousand suns. Meanwhile, you’ll be feeling relief from pain, anxiety, arthritis, and sleep disorders.

No anti-venom needed here.

Just sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite.
