I am a person who naturally struggles with fatigue and low energy. My daytime hours are consumed by constant work-related stress and the adversity of being a first time father. It concerns me when I look at how much coffee I consume throughout the day just to stay awake and moving forward. But without fail, I will feel lethargic and slow by 2pm if I don’t keep drinking coffee throughout my work shift. Even though I work from home and make my own hours, I prefer to work during daytime hours because I get tired once it gets dark outside and the melatonin in my brain naturally starts to release. I couldn’t work a graveyard shift if I tried. That’s also why I don’t like to take any sedating substances throughout the day. On that list are indica cannabis strains because they make me much too tired to work if I consume them during daylight hours.
I lose the ability to function when I need to the most if I have a bunch of indica in my system at any moment in time. With that said, it doesn’t take much to knock me out in the evening once push comes to shove. I sometimes take a small bud out of every flower jar I have of indica strains and mix them together. The combination of various terpenes from each strain makes me so tired that I soon feel so tired that I can easily drift off to sleep without much time needed. If I want to consume cannabis during daylight hours, I have to reach for an energizing sativa strain instead.
