Pain is the number one reason patients turn to medical marijuana. This pain can be derived from a variety of conditions. A person may have pain because they were in a car accident or they may have chronic pain due to cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy.

You’ll find that there is big debate of sativa vs. Indica strains when it comes to combating pain with cannabis.

Sativa weed is often the preferred strain because it provides an energetic high. Indica is known to provide a full-body high, which would be the ideal choice for anyone with severe body pain. A person that may be suffering from the effects of chemotherapy would likely prefer indica. But patients are not limited to just one or the other when it comes to marijuana strains. In some cases, a hybrid strain may be the best option for your pain.

The strongest weed for one person may be drastically different than the preferred weed for another person’s pain.

Let’s take a look at the top 3 strains of weed for pain.

1.     ACDC

If doctors have to choose one strain that is the most effective at helping a patient with pain, it is definitely ACDC. This strain has high amounts of both THC and CBD. A hybrid, this strain will provide the user with:

  • Relaxation
  • Intense focus
  • Slight energy increase
  • Slight your euphoric feeling
  • Happiness

You won’t become a couch potato after taking this strain, but you also won’t have the immense uplifting effect of a sativa-dominant strain either.

2.     Blackberry Kush

Anyone that is having severe pain should seek a strain of marijuana that is high in THC. Sometimes, you want to take your mind off of the pain and simply numb the body. This is exactly what Blackberry Kush provides to you.

You’ll feel:

  • Lazy and relaxed
  • A euphoric high
  • Sleepy
  • Happy
  • Creative

You definitely don’t want to take Blackberry Kush if you have to go to work or school, but you do want to take it if you have severe pain.

3.     Harlequin

Harlequin is the ideal strain of marijuana if you have an injury or disease that causes inflammation. A good example of this is arthritis. What makes this strain so special is that as a high CBD content.

You’ll notice an immediate euphoric a feeling, while also being focused and uplifted.

Euphoria will come over you, and you’ll have a clear mind that allows you to stay focused. I would recommend this strain of marijuana for anyone who has school, work or needs to stay focused for any reason.
