Medical Marijuana for Depression: Top Eight Strains That Can Help You

Cannabis users know perfectly well that a nice toke can alleviate your headache and fatigue. But does marijuana also help with depression? Surely, it does. Some strains handle this state better, others succeed on a moderate level, but generally, all strains are useful for treating this disorder.

Choosing a strain can be quite difficult for those who live in the area where medical marijuana is not legalized yet. In this case, you simply buy what you can find and try to get the best out of your weed.

But those of you who have a great choice of strains, edibles, and other products with marijuana, can be picky about what to buy. The thing is, every strain has its own terpene and cannabinoid profile, and therefore, different strains offer different solutions to health problems. Some help you calm down if you experience anxiety, while others make you more energetic when you are tired.

But if you are looking for the perfect weed for depression, it is impossible to name such a strain. You need to experiment and try what is best for you personally. It is not only about flavor and aroma preferences; it is also about the reasons that cause the state of depression and the symptoms you have. Whether you want to find a remedy for curing your insomnia, enhancing your mood, inducing hunger, becoming more focused and energetic or less anxious, you need to choose the strain specially for your needs.

Here, we will tell you the most potent and the most effective strains (to our opinion), but you are welcome to look for more in our database and choose what suits you best.

Afghan Haze has a high percentage of limonene terpene, which is responsible for not only the citrus smell but also for mood elevation. This is a sativa-dominant strain that effectively eases depression along with physical pain. Smoking Afghan Haze can make you a bit dizzy, but you can consume it in small doses during daytime without any worries.

Cannatonic is one of the high-CBD strains (up to 17 percent) that is known for its bliss effect. Usually, this state is associated with THC, but Cannatonic works a bit different. It clears your mind, gives you the energy to move on, and ensures a lively mood for the whole day. If your depression state is connected with other health problems, like chronic pain, migraine, or tension, this strain can alleviate them, too.

Cinex is a sweet and citrus hybrid that takes the best from both sativa and indica. While the sativa component cares about your mind and puts you in a good mood, the indica part of the strain eases the pain and discomfort in your body.

Harlequin is a well-balanced sativa strain with 4% of THC and 6% of CBD. This weed provides you with a nice medicinal effect and little to no high effect. The Harlequin strain is useful for times when you cannot focus or feel sad, and even your favorite food cannot make you up for eating.

Jack Herer is one of the most famous sativa strains that has proved its effectiveness eleven times with winning the High Times Cannabis Cup. This weed will put you in a more energetic, creative, and optimistic state of mind. It is good for those who has lack of motivation and productivity and needs to clear their head from all the negative thoughts.

Pineapple Express is a sativa-dominant hybrid that has proven itself as a great remedy for alleviating stress, stimulating appetite, and covering your body with a nice blanket of bliss and happiness. It is especially effective for stress-initiated depression and occasional panic attacks.

XJ-13 is a hybrid of Jack Herer, which was mentioned above, and G13 Haze. This pine-scented strain can not only reduce stress or eliminate mood disorders but also activate special parts in your brain that make you more social and creative.

707 Headband is a pine-scented hybrid that provides you with a nice relaxed state with no buzzing in your head. The pain goes away, you start to remember the good things in your life, and all the stressful moments start to look quite ordinary. 707 Headband is a nice remedy for difficult periods in your life.
