Struggling with chronic pain?
Do you want to use cannabis as a pain remedy but don’t know which strains or edibles to try?
Totally understandable. We pride ourselves on giving our customers and patients a wide selection of products to choose from.
But that may not be helpful for first-time users who haven’t had the time to learn the differences between individual strains and edible products.
You may not care all that much about terpenes or CBD: THC ratios.
For now, maybe all you want is an answer to the following question:
“Is this product going to make me feel better or not?”
Fair enough. A little clarity and straightforwardness isn’t too much to ask.
So here are the 9 best cannabis strains and edibles for pain relief!
1. Desert Grown Glue
One of the main challenges of using cannabis for daytime relief is that some strains are too relaxing.
Desert Grown Glue is a nice, even-handed hybrid that gives the user uplifting cerebral effects while delivering body relaxation.
Can you still function while using it? Yes. You should probably stay away from complex tasks like solving math equations, but if you want to do some light physical activity or reading/writing, this is the perfect strain for ya.
2. Sour Banana Sherbet
Sour Banana Sherbet is as tasty as it sounds and is ideal for late afternoon / early evening use. Highly energetic users might smoke this and still feel like vacuuming their entire house. But the majority of users won’t feel like doing much work at all.
Instead, think “happy hour.” Eating dinner, relaxing, listening to music, watching TV – activities that require very little brain wattage.
3. Joe Fix-It Honeycomb
If you’re looking for a strain that will relieve your pain and still allow you to put in a decent eight hours of work…
…this is not that strain.
Okay, technically, Joe Fix-It Honeycomb, is a concentrate, which means it’s like a souped-up version of the regular Joe Fix-It strain, clocking in at 80% – 85% THC.
Simply put, it will knock your socks off along with whatever else you’re wearing and then put you in a whole different outfit: psychoactive pajamas wrapping you in wave after wave of euphoric bliss.
Yeah. It’s pretty strong.
We recommend this strain to customers suffering from severe chronic pain, muscle spasms, and arthritis.
New users will probably be too overwhelmed by these effects to be very productive. In fact, new users should probably experiment with flower strains and microdosing edibles before jumping to concentrates.
Veteran users may be able to handle some light tasks.
4. Kosher Kush
Kosher Kush is a bona fide classic Indica strain. It won the High Times Cannabis Cup for “Best Indica” in 2010 and 2011; it also took home the prize for “Best Strain” in 2011.
Quite a pedigree. Plus, it tastes delicious: earthy and fruity!
Kosher Kush initially delivers powerful cerebral effects. Slows down the thinking. Relaxes any head pain you might be feeling. Soon you feel pretty sedated. But those effects are also seeping into your body, and before long, you’ll be immersed in head-to-toe relaxation.
If your chronic pain is stressing you out and making it difficult for you to sleep, Kosher Kush has you covered: it relaxes the mind, relieves the pain, and encourages the ZZZs.
5. Black Afghan
Black Afghan is a powerhouse Indica, delivering impressive, full-body, pain-relieving effects.
Careful though: Black Afghan might sneak up on you slowly, so take a couple of hits and wait maybe 30 minutes before your next dose.
Because when those full effects start to come in, they’ll be coming in hot! A great strain for severe chronic pain and insomnia.
6. Highly Edibles Sweet Indica Pucks
Need pain relief that will last through the night while you sleep?
Then Highly Edibles Sweet Indica gummy pucks should be a part of your just-before-bedtime dessert.
Made from organic juices, bursting with flavor, and chock full of Vitamin C, these yummy gummies contain 10 mg of THC per puck.
First-time users may want to divide the puck in half so that they can start at approximately 5 mg per dose.
7. Select CBD Vape Pen
Select CBD’s disposable vape pens are made with hemp-derived CBD oil along with a diverse spectrum of essential oils, depending on the exact effect you’re looking for.
The pens come in three different varieties: Focus, Revive, and Relax. Each pen delivers 1-2 mg of CBD per 3-second puff. Great for treating pain in a quick, convenient, and discreet manner.
8. CBD Euphoria Elixir
If you need relief but don’t want to wait hours for an edible to take effect…
…but you also can’t vape for one reason or another…
…then what you want is CBD Euphoria Elixir.
This CBD tincture contains terpenes such as limonene, humulene, and b-caryophyllene, creating a synergistic medley of effects designed to uplift, relax, and reduce pain and inflammation. Can be used orally or topically.
9. Epiq Water
Who knew you could hydrate your body and get relaxation and pain relief at the same time?
Welcome to the 21st century!
EpiQ Water is alkaline water, which means:
- it’s less acidic than regular tap water
- it’s rich in alkaline compounds such as calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium, and bicarbonate
These compounds help our bodies process nutrients and get rid of harmful toxins, allowing us feel healthier and perform more efficiently.
And we haven’t even gotten to the CBD part!
Each 8 fl oz bottle contains 40 mg of CBD along with the cannabinoids CBG, CBC, and the terpenes linalool, myrcene, and caryophyllene. EpiQ water is ideal for combating insomnia, stress, muscle aches, and of course, pain.
