Marijuana Strains for Pain Management

Marijuana Strains for Pain Management

Q: This isn’t about growing, but I’m interested in what strains you recommend for pain management.

alt="marijuana strains for pain relief"A: We often get folks asking which strains are the best for pain management. While each person can have different experiences with strain effects, certain rules of thumb apply.

Generally, we recommend indica over sativa for pain, as the heightened mental status evoked from a sativa can often lead to the user to focus or dwell on the pain. Often pain management can have as much to do with distraction as any sort of removal of pain. Indicas can be helpful for this.

Further helping with pain management is the presence of residual CBG in the buds. CBG has been described as being very effective in ocular and headache relief as well as generally being anti inflammatory.

Two of the strains we produce at our grow in Boulder, that have recently tested high in residual CBGs, are the Night Nurse as well as the Krishna Kush. Both of these strains represent more of a relaxing vibe than a sleepy one, making them suitable for daytime pain management as well as end of the day relaxation.

At this time, Night Nurse seeds are available for sale so you can grow your own Colorado marijuana medicine at home.
