Some people suffer from chronic or long lasting pain at one time or the other. There are some people that live with pain. Medical marijuana has provided a welcomed solution to people with painful symptoms such as spinal injury, muscle cramps, neuropathic pain, inflammation, fibromyalgia and migraine headaches. Medical marijuana patients are being aided with the top marijuana strains that combat pain-related illnesses. Here, we will examine some of the marijuana strains that have and are helping people with medical conditions that cause pain.
The Experience and Choice
Every individual will have a different experience when it comes to choosing marijuana strains and that is why, it is helpful to test the strains before consuming too much. Or, if you are not a smoker, you could consider using topical cannabis, hash oils, tinctures or edibles. These days, vape pens are quite popular to use with hash oil, if you want to inhale marijuana without the harshness that results from smoking. If you are concerned about getting high, then you should choose from one of the marijuana strains that have more CBD than THC.
If your pain is generalized then you would choose ACDC, which is one of the marijuana strains that kills pain. It consists of both CBD and THC. Generally, most marijuana strains that are high in CBD and THC have a propensity to make good pain medications. However, there are many strains that are high in CBD. ACDC has both. One thing to note is that high CBD cannabis strains are new on the market and may not be accessible to all cannabis patients. Some patients live in states that have no medical cannabis laws. Blackberry Kush is an indica strain and known for its pain relieving attributes, but it is high in THC.
Inflammation and Arthritis
Harlequin is a sativa strain that is helpful for arthritis pain and other pain caused by inflammation. It is high in CBD content and has an uplifting effect instead of being intoxicating. For that reason, it is the ideal solution for pain medication during the day as you can still use it and go about your business. Blue Widow is a hybrid strain used as an anti-inflammatory solution to pain. Its terpenes level is high and so is its caryophyllene level, which makes it high in THC.
Purple Arrow is one of those marijuana strains that hits the mark to provide pain relief for people suffering from headaches of all kinds. It provides fast relief once it is ingested or smoked. And you won't have any lingering effects of an intense high. Blueberry Headband is also another cannabis strain that delivers solutions to headache relief.
If you suffer from muscle cramps or stomach cramps, Redwood Kush is one of those marijuana strains that helps to relax the muscle and relieve any kind of tension in the body. This particular strain has a high level of THC to alleviate muscle cramps. Dynamite is also another one of those marijuana strains that aids in alleviating muscle cramps. It is an indica strain with high levels of THC. It is also said that Dynamite will give you the munchies – really bad. So be careful, if you are trying to stay on a diet of some sort.
Pain From Spinal Injury
If you are suffering from pain due to spinal injury, Cataract Kush is the ideal cannabis strain to try. It is from the hybrid family and a cross between OG Kush and LA Confidential. This one is also high in THC and is very potent. Therefore, if you are a novice user, be careful.
