It’s no secret that marijuana is a super effective treatment for a ton of medical conditions – it’s why the medical use of marijuana has be legalized for more than twenty years in some states. But finding the right strain for your ailments can be tough. Not all cannabis strains are created equal and not all conditions respond to the same strains.
To help identify the right herb for you, we’ve listed some common medical conditions and highlighted the most effective indicas, sativas and hybrids to treat them with.
Hybrid: Jet Fuel
Jet Fuel is a cross between Aspen OG and High-Country Diesel. The result is a sativa-dominant hybrid that’s true to its SFV OG Kush and East Coast Sour Diesel roots. And, the name Jet Fuel isn’t just a refence to its aroma. This bud produces a high-energy jolt of uplifting energy that eventually levels off to peaceful state of relaxation.
Sativa: Will Nelson
Willie Nelson is a sativa-dominant strain that its well known for producing a euphoric and creative state of mind. Winner of the 2005 High Times Cannabis Cup, this strain has a fan base to rival its namesake’s. Fans love that Willie Nelson leaves them clear-thinking, creative, and up for socializing.
Hybrid: Grapefruit Diesel
Grapefruit Diesel is an indica-dominant hybrid – but in addition to treating arthritis pain – it’s known for giving most users a “focused” high commonly associated with sativas. A cross between Grapefruit and NYC Diesel, THC levels are calculated between 15% and 20%. Its energetic buzz comes on strong but smooths out over time.
Indica: Tora Bora
Tora Bora is not for the faint of heart. It’s a 99% pure indica strain with powerful effects suitable for high-tolerance cannabis users. Named for a region near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, DNA Genetics created this strain by crossing L.A. Confidential and X18 Pure Pakistani. The result is a resin-loaded, spicy, indica that is almost blue in color. Few strains will deliver better relief from pain and insomnia while recreational users will enjoy Tora Bora’s intensity.
Hybrid: Purple Arrow
Purple arrow is another superior pain-relieving strain. This hybrid provides effective relief for severe pain while inducing a sense of peace and ease. Very well-rounded, Purple Arrow is potent without causing an over-medicated feeling that some medical strains produce. Fragrant, herbal, and a little sweet, this strain tastes almost as good as it feels. When you need immediate relief and would like to stay off the couch, Purple Arrow maybe just what you need.
Sativa: Alice in Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland is sativa-dominant strain that produces euphoric cerebral effects.
