Five Of The Best Couch Lock Strains To Grow

Blueberry Strain

Blueberry Strain

Blueberry is an indica dominant hybrid strain that lives up to its name. Its deep purple buds resemble blueberries’ color and have a sweet aroma and taste.

Blueberry’s sweet flavor isn’t the same fruity sweetness you get from other strains like Runtz and Zkittlez, which have a mix of different fruits. Instead, this weed strain provides a single note, the fresh flavor of ripe blueberries.

This couch lock weed has a deeply relaxing body high that you would expect from an indica, but because it’s a hybrid strain, it has a full head high as well.

However, unlike its flavor, the effects of Blueberry aren’t just a single note. 

Instead, its head high also includes mood-elevating qualities that you’d typically get from sativa strains. It will draw out euphoric feelings as you relax.

This unique blend is why Blueberry’s won the High Times cannabis cup for the best indica.

When it comes to growing Blueberry in your cannabis garden, be aware that this strain doesn’t just grow tall but also wide.

You’ll need a lot of space between each plant. 

As for where they’re best grown, keep them indoors. Blueberry cannabis plants can thrive outdoors in a sunny climate.

Our online cannabis seed shop sells both feminized and autoflower seeds, but you can also purchase Blueberry CBD seeds. These marijuana seeds also contain high amounts of CBD and barely any THC.

Afghan Strain

Afghan Strain

When talking about couch lock strains, Afghan will always come to mind. This pure indica comes from a landrace strain in the Hindu Kush Mountains (around the Pakistan-Afghanistan border). 

This couch lock weed has stayed relevant throughout the years because of its strong effects and history.

And even to this day, Afghan and its landrace parent Afghani are still cultivated for their potent buds and their rich resin content that is perfect for hash.

The strong and potent buds of Afghan are why this particular weed strain often comes up when talking about potent cannabis strains or the best couch lock strains. 

Afghan provides a deeply relaxing experience and a full-body high. Additionally, it cultivates happiness as feelings of euphoria begin to fill your mind.

Afghan is a very potent indica strain for first-time users that will surely knock you out.

However, for those who regularly consume indica, you’ll find Afghan’s strong body high to be a pleasant experience.

Growing this couch lock weed strain in your cannabis garden won’t require much space since Afghan seeds will only grow to be average-sized cannabis plants.

However, they’re known to grow quite bushy, so you’ll need to prune them accordingly to avoid crowding.

Gorilla Glue Strain

Just like with Afghan, you can’t make a list of the best couch lock strains without mentioning Gorilla Glue. This hybrid strain is a 50% sativa/ 50% indica blend. 

However, despite this, Gorilla Glue’s effects are primarily indica. And it’s because of its potent sedating qualities that this couch lock weed strain is one of the best end-of-day strains around.

Gorilla Glue’s potent buds will give you a deeply relaxing body high that will make you feel heavy like a gorilla. And, true to its name, you’ll feel glued to your couch.

FAQ’s About The Best Couch Lock Strains

What causes couch lock?

Myrcene. Besides being a flavonoid that gives certain marijuana strains a sweet flavor profile and an earthy taste, Myrcene increases blood-barrier penetration. Essentially, Myrcene increases the potency of a strain’s effect, creating the heavy feeling we associate with ‘couch lock.’

What are the most popular OG strains?

Northern Lights and Gorilla Glue are two of the most popular OG strains around. Northern Lights is known for its pleasant effects and long-lasting high, while Gorilla Glue is the poster strain of couch lock strains. But don’t let popularity decide what the most potent strain is. Instead, try to grow it yourself. You can get a more potent couch-lock feeling from any indica or indica hybrid by harvesting at the right time. And when it comes to getting that strong couch-lock effect from indica cannabis, it’s all about harvesting late.
