Five “Blessed-approved” cannabis strains for post-workout relaxation

Pink Kush

Pink Kush weed is mostly indica. Strain experts contend that its Indica dominance may run up to 90%. It does have an indicated Sativa profile at 10%. Despite this low number, its Sativa underpinnings help to boost its uplifting, happy, and euphoric effects.

Many users enjoy its vibrant and surprisingly sweet flavor. They also like its versatility. Consumers can use this strain in a variety of ways. Some tout its ability to soothe frayed nerves and ease them off to sleep.

Others indicate that they find it useful for assisting with back pains, migraines, and other aches. These sentiments fall in line with Pink Kush’s Indica-leaning nature. Like some similar Indica strains, it has some tendencies that make it a prime candidate for calming and soothing users.



MK Ultra is a potent Indica marijuana strain made by crossing OG Kush with G13. This strain produces euphoric effects that are fast-acting and best for when strong medication is desired. MK Ultra is bred by T.H. Seeds and won 1st place Indica at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2003 and 2nd place in 2004. This strain gets its name from the methods of mental manipulation employed by the CIA’s Project MKUltra. Indoor growing is facilitated by the plant’s short stature, and its above-average yield delivers particularly sticky, dense, pungent flowers.


Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple, also known as “Grand Daddy Purple” or “GDP” or “Grand Daddy Purps,” is a heavy Indica dominant strain created through crossing the classic Big Bud X Purple Urkle strains. This flavorful bud is said to be the grandfather of all weed strains, packing timeless full-bodied effects and an infamous flavor that will leave you begging for more.

The Granddaddy Purple high hits you first with a cerebral rush that leaves you feeling completely euphoric although with a slight numbing effect. A slightly psychedelic effect will slowly wash over your mind, leaving it floating through trippy visions as your body falls into a deep sense of relaxation and peace. With effects like these and a powerful 20-27% THC level and almost 1% average CBD level, Granddaddy Purple is the perfect bud for killing the effects of chronic pain, muscle spasms, insomnia, and appetite loss.

This bud has a super sweet grape flavor that has a heavily pungent harsh aftertaste that can overwhelm some. The aroma is pretty powerful with hints of sweet grape and berry accented by a heavy spicy pungency that's pretty harsh in itself, too. Granddaddy Purple buds are strikingly purple, spattered with bright fiery orange hairs, and coated in sweet sticky resin.


Girl Scout Cookies

Cookies is a powerful strain, but feels like a true hybrid, riding the line between the relaxation of an Indica and the social invigoration of a Sativa. It’s a conversation-starter, making most users distinctly social, chatty, and happy, while also keeping them largely couch-bound. It’s a great strain for a card game or watching a funny TV show because it definitely improves mood and is best suited to more sedentary activities.
