Deep Sleep’s moniker is a warning for enthusiasts looking for an energizing high that keeps one alert throughout the day. Its sedating effects are strong enough to make the eyes droop with an unrelenting heaviness. However, it does have a calming effect on the fast-paced thoughts that anxiety or stress brings.

Deep Sleep is not a daytime strain. Like its name suggests, it lulls all enthusiasts into a deep unencumbered slumber especially at the comedown. The heaviness it plants in the limbs slows down one’s ability to move around or complete tasks. Hence, it will be counterproductive when used in the morning. As such, it is best used in the evening after a stressful day.
With that said, its onset is a gentle rush of euphoria that inspires an innate sense of happiness. It should come as no surprise that smiles seem brighter or that giggles escape the mouth. Cheery memories flow inside the mind and leave users with an upbeat disposition that lasts for hours.
Preparing snacks ahead of time is not necessary but is welcome. Depending on one’s tolerance level, the subtle stimulating head buzz is enough to invigorate the appetite as well. Having food at least an arm’s length away is more convenient than heading to the kitchen. It will also allow one to enjoy the upcoming Indica effects in comfort.
The creeping sensation usually comes about an hour or two after the first puff. It releases tension starting from the temples but it often leaves the body too heavy to move around. In all likelihood, users will end up lounging on the couch in deep relaxation as the light pressure continues to ease the muscles.
Deep Sleep has the undoubtedly distinct taste of aged wine. It is a little sour but sweet all throughout due to its grape overtones. Meanwhile, breaking it apart or combusting the buds releases its woody undertones of refreshing pine which complement its fruity profile.
Taking a puff of Deep Sleep is similar to drinking delicious wine on a fine evening. Its flavors of grape tantalize the palate with its sweet and sour hints. Meanwhile, on the exhale, it leaves a woody aftertaste reminiscent of pine that lasts for hours.
Cannabinoids have moisture-inhibiting properties that leave the eyes and mouth feeling dry. Due to its typicality, seasoned users often ignore the symptoms. Beginners, on the other hand, may down a few glasses of water to manage the discomfort. It can sometimes be accompanied by dizziness, anxiety, and a headache but that is a rare occurrence. Pacing and moderation, however, helps users effectively avoid greening out.
Cannabis has been used as a sleep aid for the longest time. Its high levels of the psychoactive compound contains sedating properties that puts the body’s natural sleep schedule back in sync. To this end, Deep Sleep works effectively. It plants a heaviness in the limbs that beckon users deprived of sweet relief into a deep slumber.
The same soothing physical buzz appeases various aches and pains in the body. It relaxes the muscles, preventing it from contracting uncontrollably as either cramps or spasms. Meanwhile, its anti-inflammatory qualities reduce redness and swelling which can trigger the same effect and cause users pain.
Combining the tranquilizing body buzz and restful night results in enlivened senses. It not only brings back one’s initial limberness the next day but it also removes the feeling of fatigue or over exhaustion. As such, users are more motivated the next day.
Deep Sleep is a short and sturdy plant that is densely packed in deep green foliage. Indoors, it will need to be thinned out through pruning or trimming. This is because it can harbor moisture in between its crevices which later develop into mold or mildew. Installing a proficient ventilation system is also necessary to keep the buds and roots from rotting.
Growers can improve the compact Deep Sleep’s yields through the Sea of Green techniques. It requires growing at least four plants in a single square meter to heighten the chances of producing higher yields. Pairing it with a hydroponics setup, which delivers nutrients straight to the roots, will significantly improve bud and trichome production. However, beginners may want to stick to soil as it is cheaper and easier to manage. Moreover, it enhances flavors.
Though naturally sturdy, Deep Sleep needs protection against the harsh weather when it is cultivated in either gardens or farms. A temporary enclosing will keep the plant safe against the snow that can kill it overnight or heavy rains which can snap the plant in half.
Deep Sleep fully matures 7 to 9 weeks after initiating the flowering period. It yields between 10 to 12 ounces of buds per square meter. Growers can further improve turnout by applying growing techniques.
In the northern hemisphere, Deep Sleep blossoms from the last week of September to the middle of October. It produces at least 12 ounces of buds per plant once ready for harvest.
