A person might be experiencing fatigue for any number of reasons.

It could be the symptom of a chronic illness such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, AIDS, or chronic fatigue syndrome.

Fatigue can also be caused by stress, anxiety, and depression as well as lack of sleep, exercise, and nutritious food.

Depending on the cause of your fatigue, cannabis might be able to provide an effective remedy.

  • In regards to the chronic illnesses listed above, cannabis can alleviate joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, anxiety, and depression. Reducing the severity of these symptoms could help reduce the fatigue you’re feeling.
  • If you’re simply looking for something to energize you in the morning, we recommend a sativa-dominant strain, particularly one that contains the terpenes limonene and/or pinene.
  • But if your fatigue is caused by insomnia, you’ll be better served using an indica strain that contains the terpene myrcene. Or you can try a high-CBD strain.

Before using cannabis to treat fatigue, you should first consult with a physician, especially if you believe the fatigue is the result of a chronic illness.

If your doctor signs off on medical cannabis use, come into our dispensary for a visit and speak with one of our consultants or our on-site registered nurse. They’ll be able to help you find the products that are best suited for you.
