This is a HEAVY Indica, and my favorite strain. I have horrible insomnia, pain from back surgery, and anxiety issues. This strain takes care of all of these for me. It's absolutely amazing, and I run to the dispensery whenever it's in stock. The best, and very strong and sedating.
THC: 19% - 21%Ray Charles is thought to be a 100% pure indica hybrid strain created through a powerful cross of the cult favorite Romulan X Afghani Bullrider strains. This potent bud is infamous for its commanding nighttime effects that are fueled by a THC level that ranges from 19-21% on average. The high starts with a creeping head buzz that serves to completely disconnect and numb your mind, providing significant relief from any pain or racing thoughts. This head buzz slowly eats its way throughout your body, causing you to become intensely sedated with a sleepy relaxing effect. This full body high is insanely narcotic and will cause even experienced users to fall asleep before they even reach the halfway point of this powerful long lasting high. Because of these potent indica effects, Ray Charles is said to be perfect for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic pain, insomnia, nightmares, and chronic stress or anxiety. This bud has a memorable aroma of sweet and skunky earthy grape that has a fragrant floral scent when it's smoked. The taste is of an earthy sweet wine with a skunky aftertaste that intensifies as you continue to smoke. Ray Charles buds have long dense and heavy pepper-shaped forest green nugs with light minty green leaves, sparse fiery orange hairs, and a completely frosted coating of crystal white trichomes.

I bought a sample (1/8th) of this Ray Charles strain through Elk Mountain Trading Post on a $6/gr special. I normally shy away from indica strains because I don't need help napping! But the price was good so i gave it a try. I absolutely LOVE this strain. I'm a guitar player and many strains seem prohibitive to playing the guitar...I just flub up on too many notes or forget which notes come next. But Ray Charles is different in this respect. One smallish bonghit and I'm playing at my best! And it gets my creative juices flowing for noodling out some great sounding riffs! I did not notice a need to sleep as noted above, but I'm looking more for a buzz than getting flat-out ripped. This strain feels more like a sativa to me. Bought an Oz yesterday and am happy!
