Responsive image

As per a survey in 2017, as much as 62 percent of patients who have a medical cannabis card have got it to manage their chronic pain. Pain is surely one of the most common health problems in the US. And it can further lead to the development of various other issues, including muscle spasms, insomnia, depression, difficulty in focusing, etc. Cannabis, though, has been proven really helpful with it.

Are you applying for 420 evaluations for the same issue? Experts say you should know that some cannabis strains may work better in helping you manage your chronic pain. In this post, we’ve discussed some of them.

Sour Diesel

A Sativa-dominant strain, Sour Diesel, is one of the perfect strains to help you manage your chronic pain. The strain has the ability to fill you up with plenty of energy. Though it contains enough THC to make it potent, the effects are more on the uplifting side. Given all this, Sour Diesel will not only help you find relief from pain but also feel happy and relaxed.

The strain may also help you manage depression and anxiety. And the best part- it is a widely available strain, as it stays in demand given how effective it is for several ailments.


Founded in the 70s, Blueberry is quite an old strain but still very popular. This tells us a lot about how effective it is. It’s a go-to strain for a lot of anxiety patients but also has some amazing pain-relieving properties. Even though it contains high THC, its effects aren’t as mind-numbing, given it also has a good CBD level too. Being a Sativa-dominant strain, it offers you calming effects and helps you find relief from your pain easily and for the long term. Now, though Blueberry’s effects aren’t couch-locking, they may still alter coordination at some level. Hence, we recommend you cancel any other plans of yours for the day if you are thinking of consuming it.


Another popular strain in the medical cannabis world for its amazing pain-relieving properties. ACDC again contains a nice ratio of THC and CBD, which makes it a good-to-go strain even for new cannabis users. In fact, many patients tell us that ACDC isn’t at all intoxicating. But that’s perhaps hard to believe, given the amount of THC it carries. And thus, if you are a new user, we still need to warn you to stay a little cautious and try it within limits.

ACDC is a hybrid strain with Sativa dominance. Thus, it offers you a mellow and relaxing high but still leaves you with the energy to stay a bit social too.

White Widow

If you are a new marijuana user, we wouldn’t recommend you try this, as White Widow is a very potent strain. However, if you have a little bit of experience, you may go for it in order to make your aches and pain a bit manageable

White Widow is the first Indica-Dominant hybrid Strain on this list. And it offers you a more relaxing but less couch-locking high. It is, in fact, one of the most famous strains among marijuana users and works well for managing pain, anxiety, as well as insomnia. You may try this strain if you want to manage your pain with a nice euphoric and happy feeling.

Northern Lights

Northern Lights is again an Indica-dominant strain that is great for managing pain. It is also a very famous strain and has won many awards for its amazing properties. It offers its users a body-numbing and couch-locking effects.

Along with it, however, Northern Lights also provides mental relaxation, which makes it perfect for enjoying after a long hectic day. In fact, it’s better to consume it in the evening only as it may induce sleep too.

Finding a strain for your condition- pain or any other- can be difficult, given how

marijuana works differently for everyone.

However, you may consider the above list a beginning point if you suffer from pain. In the end, it’s all about experimenting and finding out which strain works for you the best.
