Marijuana has always had a reputation of promoting a sense of relaxation in its users. A lot of enthusiasts would agree that a good session can quickly turn into nap time under the right circumstances. Due to this effect, many aficionados and even some in the medical community have been turning to or recommending cannabis as an alternative to over-the-counter or prescription sleep aids that often have unpleasant side effects and have the risk of becoming habit forming if used on a regular basis.

As a result of the demand for these particular sleep-aid properties in cannabis, a variety of different strains have been developed that are especially geared towards that end. While you will find that most are on the indica side, there some notable hybrid strains that can get the job done just as well.
