Skunk Ape Strain Uses & Side Effects

According to stoners, the Skunk Ape strain is best for nighttime use due to its relaxing and sleep-inducing effects. The high of this marijuana starts with a warming euphoria that helps get rid of bad racing thoughts and quickly leaves smokers dozing if they are not careful. Almost with the first exhale, you will feel relaxed and euphoric with a light sense of creativity that doesn't affect your energy for the first minutes. However, later you won't be able to do something as the body will be sedated and the mind free from stress, allowing you to enjoy a deep long night's rest. Thanks to these effects and its high THC level, this weed is used by medical patients to soothe symptoms associated with the following issues:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle spasms
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea

Due to high THC concentration, Skunk Ape may cause minor side effects. The most common are:

  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Drowsiness
  • Heightened sensory perception
