Everyone at some point will suffer from stomach pain. It is a relatively common ailment, but for some the pain is chronic and doesn’t go away, even after using traditional medicines. Pains in your stomach are often accompanied with feelings of nausea and vomiting. It can be particularly undesirable for many, especially people who suffer from conditions such as Crohn’s disease. So, that is why people are turning to cannabis to find relief in their pain and subside the feelings of sickness. But, what strains should you be looking out for?
Strains for Pain Relief
This strain is a Sativa that is ideal for combating both pain and stress. It is traditionally used by patients who suffer from depression. One of the symptoms of depression is stomach pains, and there is anecdotal evidence that Tutankhamon can help with this. Beware though, this Sativa comes with a distinctive smell that may not be to everybody’s taste.
This is a strain which is a Sativa that is characterized bywhat many people say as a “happy high”. The pain relieving properties of Silver Kush are also widely known. If you are looking for a strain that not only fights your stomach pain, but relieves depression, this could be the strain for you.
This is an Indica rather than a Sativa. Many people say that Gigabud makes them laugh and provides a euphoric effect. While the pain relief is good, it may not be suitable for those who are looking to be active, as users have reported it makes them feel sleepy and lethargic. Gigabud is also good for those who suffer from insomnia.
The rather ominous sounding Black Widow is a hybrid strain which is becoming quite popular for pain relief, including stomach pain. We love itsbalance of both Sativa and Indica characteristics. If you are looking for a strain that relieves pain, nausea, and depression, give Black Widow a try.
Lucid Dream is characterized by an uplifting high which many people find to be quite stimulating.If you suffer from stomach pain during the day, this could be the best strain to use, as it will keep you alert for whatever comes your way during the day. If you suffer from stress and migraines, Lucid Dream can prevent this from happening head on.
This strain was named Ice Queen in part due to the white resin & the trichomes that are present. Some of the effects of this strain include a happy increase in mood, with an increase in focus, as well as the pain relieving properties.
