Arthritis can be excruciating as it causes swelling in the joints. As a result, it becomes difficult for the patient to move his joints without feeling any pain. So far, there is no effective cure for the disease and patients are prescribed pain killers. In half the cases, these pain killers don’t work, and the patient has to tolerate the pain on his own. This is where the cannabis strains come in.
Cannabis has been proven to help a lot of medical conditions, and one of them is arthritis. In this article, we will tell you about five of the best cannabis strains that can provide you with pain relief in arthritis.
Death Bubba Strain
Death Bubba strain is a descendant of Bubba Kush strain. The THC level in this strain is high and ranges from 25% to 27%. Death Bubba tastes like spicy lemon pine, and you experience pungent earth while exhaling.
After smoking this strain, you will feel a rush of energy immediately, which will leave you motivated. As the relaxing and comforting feelings encapsulate your body, it will take away all kinds of aches, even related to arthritis.
Girl Scout Cookies
Patients dealing with chronic pain disorders have discovered that GSC provides them with much relief. However, the THC level (26%) in this strain is much higher than the CBD level (1%), which can make the user a little high. Due to its sedative effects, this strain is appropriate for nighttime use.
Pennywise strain is quite helpful and relieves pain in users. The strain is a hybrid and has CBD and THC. The ratio of these compounds is 1:1, which makes it an ideal therapeutic option for people who want to be able to function normally during the day.
Most of the patients who have arthritis also experience anxiety and stress because of chronic pain. This strain is not only used for pain relief but is also known to alleviate any anxiety and depression.
Harlequin is a hybrid that is more sativa than indica. It is rich in CBD, with levels up to 13.5%. The THC levels are relatively low (10%). This ratio means that using this strain will give you a medicinal boost, which is just a light buzz because of low THC content.
This strain is commonly used for pain (and because of good reason too). The people who have used Harlequin have given positive reviews. They have claimed that the strain helped them with the pain of osteoarthritis and doesn’t make them hungry (which some strains do).
ACDC has minimal THC, so you don’t have to worry about its sedative effects. The CBD levels are up to 16.3%, which makes it extremely effective. Because of these levels, this strain is most commonly used to relieve moderate to chronic pain. ACDC can give you the pain relief any other artificial drug would, except all the side effects.
If you suffer from arthritis, these strains should be able to alleviate your pain! Good Luck!
