The Best Weed Strains for Anxiety
Cannabis can be a beneficial aid to help manage anxiety. By using the right strains of cannabis, people are finding relief and improving their overall quality of life.
Although both CBD and THC are cannabinoids that can help with anxiety, there are those that find the psychoactive effects of THC to be counterproductive and prefer CBD-dominant strains. Also, CBD has many properties that can help with anxiety, without the psychoactive effects of THC. You may, however, find that a balance of the two works best for you.
Weed for Anxiety
There are a few strains that have become favorites for handling anxiety. We’d like to suggest some of the best. You may want to speak with one of the budtenders at Cannawholesalers for further information.
Most notably, this Indica-dominant strain provides effects like relaxation and happiness and is very beneficial to those suffering from anxiety. Haoma typically contains high cannabinoid levels, with a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. It is also a very effective sleep-aid.
This hybrid strain has high CBD content which helps to reduce stress and anxiety. The lower THC levels provide a more cerebral experience. This makes Trident a great choice for people who want the benefits of CBD without the psychoactive effects of THC.
This award-winning Sativa-dominant strain is known for its high quality and potency (its THC levels can reach 15 to 19%). Jack Herer has almost no CBD but is a very effective strain for anxiety, stress, and depression, delivering happy and uplifting feelings.
Canna-Tsu is a hybrid strain that is a mix of two high CBD strains – Cannatonic and Sour Tsunami. While Canna-Tsu features high levels of CBD like Cannatonic, it differs in that it has a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio. The most notable effects of Canna-Tsu are deeper relaxation and increased focus. It is very effective for treating anxiety, as well as pain, inflammation, and seizures.
AC/DC is a cannabis strain that is known for its high CBD levels. The CBD levels in this strain can reach up to 19%, making it one of the most effective strains at reducing anxiety. The high CBD to THC ratio found in AC/DC helps to offset the more intense psychoactive effects that are often associated with cannabis strains that are more THC-dominant. The most notable effects of AC/DC are relaxed and happy feelings.
Cannatonic is a cannabis strain known for its low THC content and high CBD content. This can often reach levels of up to 17%. The effects of Cannatonic are predominantly relaxation and happiness, with a low psychoactive impact. It is considered one of the best medical strains for anxiety and inflammation reduction.
Best Ways to Administer
Tinctures offer several great options, and several great reasons for their use.
For a more immediate onset: For this, the sublingual method works well. This method utilizes the mucosal membrane under your tongue. By holding the oil there for a minute or so, it enters the bloodstream sooner.
For minimal fuss: This involves squirting it into your mouth and swallowing. It also involves waiting a longer period for the cannabis to take effect, since it has to make it through your digestive process.
For enjoying Edibles: Adding to your food also provides therapeutic effects to a dish or drink. It does depend upon how much food you are already processing.
Benefits and Side-Effects
When using a full-spectrum tincture, you can get the benefits of the entire plant spectrum. Effects are often amplified when in combination with the whole spectrum of compounds found in the raw flower.
Although safe, as long as you find a source of cannabis with no impurities or chemicals, you should be aware of some side-effects, like dry mouth and even occasional diarrhea.
