5 Best Cannabis Strains for Anxiety in Las Vegas

Anxiety! Who needs it?

Not you, that’s for sure.

In fact, one of the reasons so many people visit Las Vegas is because they want to relax, have fun, and forget their troubles.

But sometimes, our troubles follow us around like an ex that just can’t take a hint.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a Vegas local who stresses out constantly or a tourist who can’t leave the worrying at home. At the end of the day, you want relief.

And for us, “relief” is spelled C-A-N-N-A-B-I-S.

Here are the five best cannabis strains for anxiety in Las Vegas!


1. Desert Grown Cookies

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Which is why you should have some cookies to go along with your cereal: Desert Grown Cookies, to be exact.

This is an ideal strain for morning/daytime use. The high is energizing but you won’t feel trapped in your head. The body high is mellow but not too overwhelming.

In other words, it lifts you up while lowering your anxiety levels, leaving you more than just functional. It leaves you actually excited to tackle the day.


2. Cookie Face

Okay, we promise we’re not obsessed with cookie-related strains. That’s not it at all.

But we feel strongly that Cookie Face deserves a spot on this list.

This strain tests between 21%-26% THC, depending on the batch. Now this might be a cause for concern among some users. As a general rule, you want to avoid high-THC strains if you’re trying to quell anxiety.

But consider Cookie Face’s terpene profile: it contains limonene and caryophyllene, both of which have stress/anxiety-relieving properties. It also contains myrcene, which is commonly found in indica strains and acts as a sedative.

The overall effect is that you feel nice and relaxed, but not so relaxed that you can’t keep your eyes open.


3. Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies is a popular strain that definitely lives up to the hype. Your pain, anxiety, and stress will vanish almost instantly. The head high is focused, allowing you to be somewhat productive if necessary. But it won’t juice you up, so if you’re in the mood to just chill, Girl Scout Cookies is perfect for that.


4. White Fire OG (WiFi OG)

WiFi OG, like Cookie Face, is a high-THC concentrated strain with a terpene profile that makes a huge difference: it contains a decent amount of myrcene, pinene, and linalool.

The myrcene will help you relax, while pinene and linalool have antidepressant properties. A powerful strain that’s designed to treat powerful anxiety!

5. Granddaddy Purple

For our last strain, we’re bringing out the big guns: Granddaddy Purple. It offers both mental euphoria and intense physical relaxation. This is a heavy indica strain, so go easy on it if you want to stay awake but are sensitive to the effects of cannabis. Otherwise, it’ll put you to bed and leave you there for hours!
