One of the basic remedy for people suffering from severe and chronic pain is the versatile plant, cannabis. Medical cannabis is now legal in about two-thirds of U.S. states and even the states which have legalized it for recreational purposes started by allowing registered patients to buy weed in dispensaries.
What is the best cannabis for pain relief? Here is top 4 cannabis strains for the same.
1. Charlotte’s Web
The best thing about this CBD strain is its very low THC content (less than 0.3%), which makes it a very popular choice for use in children suffering from seizures. Charlotte’s Web was cultivated for a young epileptic patient named Charlotte. The CBD content in this strain is very high, and the serum has an earthy/woody taste. It is best used for relaxation and combating mild pain.
2. Critical Mass
This indica-dominant strain with high THC content numbs the body and sedates the brain for few hours. Good for stronger pain relief and relaxation, Critical Mass is a very THC-heavy CBD strain with up to 22% THC in it. It is great for those who want a strong high with increased CBD intake. Use can help soothe the symptoms of insomnia and depression, offering a relaxing, euphoric state.
3. Master Kush
Master Kush is an indica-dominant cannabis strain with pretty high amount of THC content. Master Kush can be consumed for treatment of body pain, particularly arthritis – much like Purple Kush. Its blissful high has a numbing effect on the body, exactly what’s called for when your joints are aching badly. The numbing doesn’t extend to the brain, though, and you’re able to function quite nicely while this strain is on-board.
4. Ringo’s Gift
If you need incredibly high CBD levels due to a high level of pain or severe medical condition, this hybrid of ACDC and Harle-Tsu is the smartest purchase you can make. With a 24:1 CBD ratio, this strain named after CBD activist Lawrence Ringo is known to treat anything from PTSD and anxiety to GI disorders and arthritis.
