Without the advice of an experienced budtender, previous knowledge of marijuana types, or serious internet research, it can be hard to match your desired cannabis effect to a particular strain, especially when it comes to stress relief. While most strains provide that calming sensation cannabis lovers look for, many users find that each produces slightly different results. The only sure-fire way to discover what strain brings you back to a state of calm is by sampling different buds from your local dispensary and seeing what works best for you.
Often associated with anxiety, stress is pervasive in our society. Luckily, there’s a natural remedy for it: cannabis. In fact, the stress-reducing effects of cannabis are actually documented by science. More specifically, cannabidiol (CBD) has been found to reduce stress and anxiety, meaning that this plant might be exactly what you need to help you unwind after a long week. This means that sativas are probably your best bet, but if you’re feeling a bit stressed and don’t know where to start, here are a few strains to try.
As more cannabis strains are being developed to highlight the most beneficial aspects of the plant, we’re beginning to see strains tailored to specific outcomes like creativity, stress relief and relaxation. Modifications to marijuana like this will help it be seen as a viable medicinal option so that it can provide relief for both recreational and medicinal users.
