If you need something to help you chill out the night before a big exam or presentation, give Ingrid a try. This marijuana strain is known for its physically relaxing effects that can put cannabis consumers to sleep in no time.
A cross between Hash Plant and Cheese, Ingrid apparently derives its name from the Austrian slang word for marijuana. Most often seen on the West Coast, Ingrid is slowly growing in popularity due to its powerful, sedating effects, which are often lauded by medical cannabis patients.
Ingrid has a distinct pungent, skunky, cheesy aroma, which it inherited from its equally stinky parent, Cheese. Its flavor profile is hashy with some fruity, berry-like notes. Ingrid’s buds are bright green, dense and tend to be small to medium in size. Keep a look out for the many dark orange or brown hairs that are common with this marijuana strain.
A solid nighttime strain, consume Ingrid when you need to quiet your thoughts and get a good night’s sleep. If you don’t fall asleep within 30 minutes of consuming this cannabis strain, you may experience some of Ingrid’s more cerebral effects, which some people have described as psychedelic. Sounds may take on a new character and your perception of time may become warped. Overall, Ingrid is your girl if you’re looking to spend a night de-stressing and vegging out on your couch.
Medical marijuana patients consume Ingrid to relieve various types of pain, including neuropathic pain and muscle spasms. Much of Ingrid's effect can be felt in the face and temples, making it a popular choice for those who suffer from tension headaches. Because this cannabis strain is extremely sedating, it’s also a go-to for those who suffer from stress or anxiety-related insomnia.
