Best Cannabis Strains for Anxiety

Best Cannabis Strains for Anxiety

You may think that a midwestern, 40+ mom of four kids with bipolar I disorder and ADHD doesn’t know too much about a superb cannabis strain to treat that anxiety, but you would be wrong. I know much more than I need to about cannabis, but that’s because it’s been such a great help with both my mania and depression throughout my life. It’s also A LOT of fun to figure out what will help you with your next “bump” in the road.

Pineapple Express: Not Just A Funny Movie
No joke, Pineapple Express is my first go-to strain at a marijuana dispensary if I’m on the verge of an impending panic attack. My tone mellows and my mind frame shifts to muster through any chaotic event with clarity and calmness almost immediately. A few years back, I made the switch to vaporizers and not only have my lungs and I never looked back, but this is one of the best tasting vape hits out there to mellow out. STAT.  Here is a more objective review.

Grandaddy Purple (or GDP): Born in ’03
My husband and I got married in 2003, and this is one we both found came in handy in the short moments before we strolled down the aisle. It was a ginormous event for my parents and family, but we are anxious people and could have just as well eloped, gotten high with Elvis in Vegas and saved so much money. GDP tastes like a big bowl of berry crunch cereal and relax mode is putting it mildly. Not just my anxiety lets up and I start breathing easier, but also my whole body feels warm, calm….centered. Then I get pretty giggly, which is the BEST part of ANY high for me. I also used this bad boy during my first pregnancy when I couldn’t keep any food or liquids down and kept losing weight. After a few pulls of GDP, I become…oh, what’s the word? Snacky. (Most definitely not anxious!)
Purple Diesel: My Go-To (Back in the Day)
Not only is purple diesel somewhat similar to my GDP in flavor (and I apparently really like the grape flavor), but prepare to laugh your booty off. I used to LOVE the Sour Diesel, and this is a hybrid of SD and Bubba Kush made earlier in the ’90s (aka my HIS years). Maybe that’s why I still find uncontrollable laughter when I get a couple of good pulls off this bad boy.
That’s what I’ve gathered so far my friend. Grab a vape, have some fun and stay safe!

Cannabis Edibles to Treat Pain

It is no longer a secret that cannabis contains lots of benefits to the human body and the more the number of studies conducted on this substance, the more the revelations as to how much of nutritional and medical benefits it offers to humans. In a bid to improve consumption of cannabis for nutritional or therapeutic benefits, the substance is now offered in the form of edibles.

This allows it to be readily absorbed within the blood stream and enhances the speed with which it reaches the target cells, muscles, tissue and other area where its effects would manifest. The following are some of the most common cannabis edibles used to treat pain.

Hashman-Infused Chocolate

This edible, as expected is a favorite of chocolate lovers. It is packed with Tetrahydrocannabinol, the compound known for alleviating the symptoms such as nausea and vomiting as presented during cancer treatments, especially among patients that do not respond so well to these treatments.

Hashman-Infused Chocolate is packed with 200 mg of Tetrahydrocannabinol, along with some pre-scored doses of up to 20 mg. You can get this edible in both indica and sativa varieties and they are also flavoured such that you won’t even realize you are taking cannabis.

Fruit-Slabs Mango-Maui Wowie Fruit-Leather

This is yet another great cannabis edible used for chronic pain relief. It is packed with 50 mg of Tetrahydrocannabinol. The edible is made from all organic ingredients and is a great option for vegans due to its high greens content. Those with gluten intolerance will also find it quite useful as it is also gluten-free.

The pack comes with 2 servings each containing 50 mg and experts advise that it be divided into 5 equal doses before taking it for pain relief.

Auntie-Dolores CBD Chocolate-Brownie

When you are under a certain medication, the worst thing that can happen to you is developing an even more serious medical condition. Imagine taking a cannabis edible for pain relief, only to alleviate the pain but come out worse in terms of blood sugar level due to the high sugar content in the edible?

Well, with the Auntie-Dolores CBD Chocolate-Brownie, these fears are well-taken care of. The edible features coconut sugar, one of the safest known forms of sugar. Therefore, it can be considered a great option for patients looking for a low-glycemic cannabis edible for pain relief. The edible is also packed with 50 mg of CBD for maximum pain relieving effects.

Yummi Karma-Infused Popcorn

Last but not least, we have the Yummi Karma-Infused Popcorn for the lovers of popcorns out there. Yummi Karma-Infused Popcorn comes in 75mg with the entire package divided into three pieces, each of 25mg.

In addition to the great pain-relieving effects of this edible, the savory parmesan herb that’s used to manufacture it adds to its delectable taste. Here is another cannabis edible that will seamlessly assist you with pain relief as you will be blinded by its great taste not to realize how much it helps banish your pain.

There are plenty other options of cannabis you can choose for pain relief. As a general rule, always remember not to be carried away by the taste as to overdose because like any other pain relief substance, it works best when you consume it within the recommended dosage.
