Different strains of medical cannabis have different effects on the body and mind-this is the main reason that “bud tenders” at medical MJ dispensaries recommend different strains for different MMJ patients.
Here are five different strains of medical-grade marijuana and how they affect the mind and body. We chose strains of different varieties of marijuana, some indica, some sativa, some blends, to showcase the varied effects of marijuana strains on the mind and body.
1. Blue Dream
Details: Heavily sativa dominant with a trace of indica, Blue Dream gets its name from the dark green appearance of the leaves under heavy trichomes.
Medical uses: The best med of all for insomnia-also a good “baseline” med for pain patients, requiring very little additional breakthrough treatment.
Review: Blue Dream is always a popular choice at dispensaries for its unique looks. Definitely a nighttime med-most often recommended by budtenders for pain patients and people with sleeping trouble.
2. Green Crack
Details: Don’t let the name put you off, this light greens sweet with an intense body effect.
Medical uses: The heavy blend of sativa in this strain makes it ideal for people dealing with chronic pain or patients using MMJ for depression or other mental health issues.
