Weed strains to use for meditation

Marijuana has an age-old relationship with contemplators. Those who seek to look inward and gain insight about the self have for millennia turned to weed. In its smoke and flavors, seers and seekers have attained states of altered consciousness and come up with answers to deep existential questions.
Now, even if you don’t aspire to be the next Bodhidharma or achieve the legendary powers of concentration of Zen masters, you can still benefit from the meditation. Marijuana is a great tool to achieve the meditative state. The cool thing about weed is that you can smoke it, chew it, vape it, rub it on your skin, etc. Here are eight cannabis types that will really get you in the mood for meditation.
