Types of Medical Marijuana Strains

Marijuana Strain Guide

Medical marijuana can be purchased and used for a variety of purposes related to alternative healthcare. From the promotion of pain relief and decreased inflammation to appetite stimulation and enhanced focus and creativity, each strain can provide different results depending on your condition. There are a few types of medical marijuana strains, indica, sativa, and hybrid strains that we'll cover in this medical marijuana strain guide.

Choose the Strain That Is Right for You

Indica Strains

Indica strains are typically used by those who seek to increase their feelings of calmness and serenity. They are optimal for stress relief and relaxation and offer a host of additional benefits including reduced nausea for cancer patients, appetite stimulation, and reduced intraocular pressure. Due to the sedative nature of Indica, it's best to use it during non-active times such as in the evening or before bed.

  • Sedating
  • Relaxing
  • Muscle relaxant
  • Decreases nausea
  • Treats acute pain
  • Increases appetite
  • Increases Dopamine

Sativa Strains

The effects of sativa-dominate strains are generally described as a sense of energy, well-being, and confidence. Sativa strains stimulate the neurotransmitter serotonin which acts in the central nervous system and is responsible for mood, appetite, and sexual function. Those with heightened anxiety or certain mental health concerns may need to use caution when using Sativa, and it's generally best to use it during a time of activity and throughout the day.

  • Activating
  • Anti-Depressant
  • Chronic Pain
  • Increases Focus
  • Increases Creativity
  • Increases Seratonin

Hybrid Strains

A marijuana strain guide wouldn't be complete without hybrids! Hybrid strains contain the genetics from both Sativa and Indica which means that they can offer the desired effects from each stain. Many customers enjoy hybrid strains as they can provide both activating and relaxing effects depending on their genetic makeup. In most cases, hybrids will be labeled as either Indica-dominant or Sativa-dominate for easier reference.

  • Euphoric
  • Increases creativity
  • Increases appetite
  • Activating
  • Relaxing
  • Increases focus
  • Anti-Depressant
