Learn about the highlights of the best cannabis strains for pain.
Pain is one of the most common conditions that medical cannabis is recommended for. With so many patients looking to find pain relief, growers have been cultivating strains of cannabis to help with pain for a very long time. Whether you’re looking for pain management, or wanting to get a better night’s sleep, here are five of the top cannabis strains for treating pain and helping patients get better quality sleep.
Gelato, as the name would suggest, is very well known for smelling sweet and fruity like the delicious Italian dessert. It can look delicious too, with pretty purple shades accented by bright orange hairs. Coming out of California, Gelato is a hybrid strain. It’s a cross between Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. Usually packed with a potent dose of THC, makes it a perfect for relaxation, while allowing consumers enough mental clarity to get things done throughout the day.
Gorilla Glue is a hybrid strain, also known as Original Glue, Gorilla Glue #4, and GG4. They all get their name from the strain’s strong relaxing physical effects, “gluing” consumers to their couch. This makes it a good suggestion for reducing pain or inducing sleep. A winner of several cannabis cup competitions, Gorilla Glue smells as potent as the power of its effects, and its buds are usually covered in a blanket of sticky trichomes.
Blueberry is an indica strain. A cross between Thai and Purple Thai, it is named for tasting like a mouthful of fresh blueberries. The strain’s history dates back to the 1970s, favored by cultivators and consumers for decades thanks to its heavily relaxing effects, and long lasting duration. This makes Blueberry a solid recommendation if you’re wanting to relieve stress or manage pain.
Bubba Fett is an indica dominant hybrid. Created by crossing the powerful Stardawg and potent Pre-98 Bubba Kush, it is well known for its strong sweet and skunky smell. It is often recommend for nighttime use because consumers report the effects being heavily sedating, providing a couch locked feeling, that is more often than not, followed by increase in hunger. This makes it a perfect fit for you if you’re having difficulty eating, or in need of a deep relaxation.
Venom OG, also called Venom, or Venom OG Kush, is an indica dominant hybrid. Crossed between Poison OG and Rare Dankness #1, it’s known for giving consumers a calming and relaxed feeling all throughout the body. Often suggested for putting you to sleep, it can be a great strain if you’re having trouble sleeping, needing pain relief, or wanting to calm anxiety. The buds of the flower are dense, with dark green flowers covered in orange hairs.
