6 Best Cannabis Strains and Edibles For Anxiety and Depression

Highs and lows are normal in life.

So is being anxious about the future or about…anything else, really.

But anxiety and depression shouldn’t stop us from living normal lives. When either of them get in the way of our overall ability to be happy and productive, we’ve got a problem.

Luckily, cannabis might be a partial solution. Check out these two articles on the benefits of using cannabis to treat anxiety and depression.

And for those of you who are interested, here are the six best cannabis strains and edibles for anxiety and depression!

1. Bio-Jesus

It might seem a little irreverent to name a cannabis strain after Jesus.

But consider this: evidence suggests that cannabis was mentioned in the Old Testament as an ingredient for a “holy anointing oil” that was used by the priesthood.

Not only that, Jesus and his apostles might have used cannabis-based oil to perform healings!

While your mind is still chewing on that revelation, now consider this one: Bio-Jesus is an indica-dominant miracle-worker with a THC level of 26% – 30%. The result is a powerful cerebral and body effect and that rapidly releases tension, putting you in a state of extreme couch lock and sleep-readiness.

So if your anxiety is keeping you up at night, Bio-Jesus might be the answer. Can we get an amen???

2. Helix Twist Sour Cherry Gummies

Oftentimes, the best things come in small packages.

And if you’re looking for an edible that can give you sustained effects throughout the night, Helix Twist Sour Cherry Gummies offer a sweet and tangy blend of cherry mixed with cannabis that’s designed to ease the mind and body.

Each serving contains a little over 10 mg of THC, which allows for convenient microdosing.

3. CannaPunch

Need a way to consume cannabis that’s more discreet than vaping or smoking but doesn’t take nearly as long as a standard edible?

That may sound like a tall order, but believe it or not, such a product exists.

That product is CannaPunch.

Here are some highlights of this cannabis beverage:

  • 100% organic and vegan
  • Gluten-free, soy-free, and corn syrup-free
  • Equipped with CannaPunch’s trademarked NXT extraction technology, which equals faster absorption (the faster absorption happens sublingually, so if you really want to get the most bang for your buck, hold the punch in your mouth for a little while, swish it around, etc.)
  • Dosing cup that allows you to measure and control how much you consume

CannaPunch comes in different flavors and strains, so if you’re looking for something to treat your depression, try their sativa-based Pineapple Mango Delight.

If you want something more anxiety-relieving and relaxing, then try the indica-based Granddaddy Grape.

4. Stardawg

Descended from Chemdawg 4 and Tres Dawg, Stardawg is an energizing, euphoria-powered hybrid strain that will expand your head space to new heights.

Users report both feelings of upliftment and increased productivity as well as a decrease in stress and anxiety. Sounds to us like Stardawg does what all good hybrids do: give you the best of both the sativa and indica worlds!

5. Cookie Face

The indica that feels like a sativa? That’s what most users say about Cookie Face.

First, this purple-budded wonder blasts you with a wave of relaxation and sedation. Next comes the pick-me-up that energizes you, giving you that second wind to tackle whatever life is throwing at you.

Cookie Face is ideal for evening use, when you need to wind down in a major way but aren’t quite ready to call it a night.

6. Highly Edible CBD Assorted Pucks

Brought to you by the fine people over at CannaPunch, these pucks boast the same wholesome ingredients you expect from their cannabis beverages.

The main ingredient is the popular cannabinoid CBD, which is well-known for its anti-anxiety effects.

These pucks are pretty heavy on the CBD side of the CBD:THC ratio (20:1), so don’t be surprised if you feel little to no psychoactive effect but a ton of relaxation.
