What is a Body High?

A body high is a feeling people have after using certain strains. It is a warm, relaxing sensation that spreads over the body. It unlocks muscle tension and replaces it with deep relaxation. Some people get so relaxed that they fall asleep.

Indica strains are most likely to provide a body high. However, there are some sativa dominant strains that can too. It depends on the amount of CBD present in each strain. Cannabis with CBD slows down the rapid fire of cell signaling in the brain. This gives the user a break from chronic stress, pain, and anxiety.  This is especially helpful for those with chronic pain disorders, such as fibromyalgia. Similarly, it is beneficial for those with anxiety disorders like PTSD. 

There are many benefits of using body-high strains. Here are the best strains for a body high, and how they can benefit you.
