Below are some of our recommended cannabis strains for anxiety:
Northern Lights :
The Northern Lights strain was 90% indica and 10% sativa. This strain is a favorite among medical marijuana users because it helps them manage their pain and anxiety. Its name comes from, you guessed it, the psychoactive experience it offers its users due to the high levels of THC it contains. Not only that, it also offers the effects of slowing down your brain, while relaxing your muscles.
This strain is sought after for its ability to ease your tensions and put you into relaxation mode. It is created using two indica strains called Big Bud and Purple Urkle. The Purple Urkle it contains gives off a sweet grape aroma. Another thing to note is that the main terpenes in Granddaddy Purple are caryophyllene, pinene, and myrcene. Some people will experience a slightly dry mouth from this strain, but the anxiety-reducing effects outweigh it.
When you need a pick-me-up, Jack Herer is the strain to choose. This vibrant and happy strain has primary terpenes of pinene, terpinolene, and caryophyllene. Many people choose to use this strain at the start of the day for its mood-altering, energetic, and lucid abilities, which may be due to its sativa dominance. What makes this strain so reliable is that it has been around since the mid-1990s and is known for its quality and potency.
Piece of chocolate :
Arguably the most chosen strain for anxiety, this strain is made up mostly of indica strains. Like its name, it is a tasty strain with cocoa flavors. Many people will use this strain at bedtime due to its ability to calm your mind and allow you to relax enough to sleep well. Therefore, it probably wouldn’t be the best idea to try this in the middle of the day due to the fact that it is a sedative. As she is THC dominant, you can expect this strain to give you euphoric effects.
CBD strains are rarer, but understanding the different types of CBD will help you find the best product to help offset your anxiety. Here are some of the things you should look for:
When creating CBD oil, there are three different types of CBD. These are full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolated. Full spectrum CBD is when there is up to 0.3% THC and all cannabis compounds. Broad-spectrum CBD is when there are all the cannabis compounds but no THC. And isolating CBD is when there are no other compounds in the cannabis plant and it is considered the pure form of CBD.
Being able to know the potency of the product can also help you choose the right amount for you – it gives you more control over how much you use. The higher the power, the more effective it will be.
Another important thing to look for is where your hemp is coming from. The US and EU both have higher standards for how their hemp is grown and handled. It is essential to have an uncontaminated, potent and non-GMO product. Both regions are also known to have less THC in their hemp plants, which is important to know if you know you don’t react well to THC.
A few inhalable CBD strains we recommend are:
With its main terpenes being pinene, caryophyllene, and myrcene, this CBD-dominant strain allows you to calm your anxiety in a more peaceful place. Since it is CBD dominant, there are few to no psychoactive effects, which is great if you prefer to stay away from THC. The sweet lemon and pine scent takes consumers to a place of serenity after inhalation.
Another popular CBD-dominant strain is called ACDC. Without the high THC levels, this strain keeps you in a calming state of mind without the euphoric effects. Similar to Remedy, this strain also has primary terpenes of pinene, caryophyllene, and myrcene. Many medical marijuana patients choose this CBD strain to help offset their anxiety and negative responses to chemotherapy.
