Irish Cream offers a creeper of a high, sometimes taking several minutes after users have savored its unique aroma to reveal its effects. Eventually, users may feel a weightiness that starts in the eyelids and then spreads down slowly through the neck. Muscular tension may evaporate and deep breathing may happen more easily.
In addition to a relaxed body, smokers typically also feel a relaxation in their thoughts — this strain’s vibes can eliminate the stress and aggravation of a long day of running the rat race. Many smokers may go so far as to shun outside stimuli, instead preferring to stretch out indoors as the pervasive feeling of body melt becomes stronger and stronger. Indeed, it may not take much for this bud to induce couchlock.
Unfortunately for the conscientious smoker, Irish Cream is not prone to leave its users mentally acute; instead, this strain is better for enjoying downtime with loved ones or for spacing out alone to some trippy music or films. In high enough doses, it can even lull consumers into a restful, intractable sleep. Despite its name, then, you may not want to pair this tasty bud with your morning coffee, as it’s liable to sap energy and motivation. Irish Cream is best suited to evening and nighttime consumption.
Medical cannabis patients may also find use in Irish Cream’s sedative effects. Its potent body melt can relieve deep-seated aches and pains, whether they’re temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to conditions like lupus or arthritis. The strain’s anti-inflammatory effects may also soothe minor irritations like headaches or nausea.
Psychologically speaking, Irish Cream can temporarily improve the symptoms of mild to moderate stress, depression, and even anxiety. As noted, it can also work against stubborn cases of insomnia. Because this strain is not likely to bring about paranoid cerebral thinking, it may be a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC
