When seeking the best cannabis strains for sleep, focusing on terpene content is crucial.

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are chemical compounds found within the essential oils of cannabis plants. According to the National Institutes of Health, terpenes are “widely used and investigated by their pharmacological properties.” 

Terpenes give cannabis strains their distinct smell and taste. While most recognize terpenes by these means, terpenes also serve as a blueprint for how each strain will affect you.

Best Cannabis Strains for Sleep

When we can’t sleep, it affects our daily lives. Lack of sleep affects our work performance, motivation, and can even affect our relationships with friends and family. Sometimes, the disruptions in our sleep are temporary, while others may experience more severe symptoms associated with insomnia. 

When considering natural options to help you sleep better, try out some of our best cannabis strains for sleep composed with these terpenes.


A-bisabolol has a light, sweet floral scent like chamomile.  It’s one of the most soothing terpenes and has been used in skincare and beauty products for centuries as a fragrance and for its reported skin-healing effects. 

Much like drinking chamomile tea, A-bisabolol has calming, soothing, and tranquilizing effects. This terpene would be excellent for those experiencing sleeping issues due to being overstressed or stimulated. 


Myrcene is the most common terpene found within cannabis. Most recognize cannabis by Myrcene’s earthy, musky aroma. 

Those suffering from insomnia can benefit from the strong sedative properties of myrcene. Studies have shown this terpene to act as a sleep aid. They have been attributed to be one of the causes of “couch lock”—greatly reduced physical activity brought on by intense bodily relaxation.


Terpinolene contains layers of floral scents resemblant to lilacs and citrus. It’s frequently found with pinene, another terpene prevalent in cannabis. 

For those suffering from high levels of insomnia, terpinolene may be a solution. Studies have shown the terpene to be a central nervous system depressant, which can cause drowsiness and bring forth sleep, as well as calm the body down to relieve the tension and stress associated with anxiety.


Nerolidol is an earthy and fruity scented terpene accented by the subtle notes of wood, citrus, apple, and rose. It’s produced in plants, including cannabis, in response to insect attacks. Though recognized for its antibacterial properties, it’s also known for its medical properties and is considered safe for humans to ingest and inhale. 

Nerolidol is used as a natural sleep aid due to the sedative effects it exhibits.


Much like terpinolene, terpineol also contains aromas resembling lilacs and citrus. It’s also commonly found with pinene terpenes. 

Terpineol is known for its many therapeutic benefits, especially in relieving those suffering from anxiety and insomnia. Studies have been conducted where terpineol was shown to sedate and reduce mobility and, as a result, ease anxiety and encourage the body to relax. 


Commonly found in many flowers and plants such as lavender, mint, cinnamon, and rosewood, linalool is a terpene that emits a floral scent similar to lavender with gentle hints of citrus. 

Much as lavender is notable for its stress-relief qualities, research has found that linalool is especially effective in tapering levels of anxiety and symptoms of depression. 

The soothing properties in linalool that promote stress relief also act as a powerful sleep aid that can help those who have insomnia get a good night’s rest.
