Cannabis acts on the same brain pathways as anandamide, which is known to induce a state of bliss.

Marijuana Strain Types

Marijuana comes in a variety of forms. We encourage you to explore and experiment with all of the various options and their associated effects. The three main varieties of the cannabis plant used as medicine are Cannabis Hybrid, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Sativa, each with a unique cannabinoid profile and medicinal effect.

Sativa Strains

Sativa plants have tall, thin leaves and thrive in temperate climates near the equator. Sativa is a favorite among medical cannabis users because it has been shown to alleviate symptoms such as depression, ADD, and mood disorders. This plant's high is energizing, making it ideal for people suffering from fatigue. Sativa strains with pinene or lemonade terpenes have an uplifting effect on the user. Sour Diesel and Super Silver Haze, which are both available, are two sativa-dominant strains.

Indica Strains

Indica plants have short, bushy leaves and can grow in much harsher conditions. This plant has a calming and slightly sedative effect and is used to treat a variety of symptoms such as anxiety, panic attacks, and insomnia. Many people who suffer from chronic pain use this strain to help them feel better. If you want to unwind or have trouble sleeping, this is the strain for you. Cannaholics 420 cultivates a wide range of popular strains, including Grape Ape and Northern Lights.

Hybrid Strains

Key terpenes are present in fairly equal amounts in hybrid strains. They are made by combining sativa and indica strains to produce flowers with characteristics of both cannabis strains. Unsurprisingly, hybrid strains are used to treat complex health issues. This strain is ideal for illnesses like anxiety and depression. Hybrid strains can also be used to alleviate chronic pain while still providing enough energy to complete tasks. Blue Dream and Cherry Pie are two excellent variations available for purchase.

CBD

CBD flower is a type of cannabis bud that helps people relax without getting them high. In fact, if you get an out-of-body high from a high THC product, you can use CBD to bring yourself back down to earth. Today's indica and sativa strains contain up to 25% THC, which is significantly higher than mom and dad's schwag from the 1960s. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is just one of many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, and CBD contributes significantly.
