Marijuana Strains

Marijuana varieties are separated into different strains. Different strains can produce different effects-- so speaking with alternative medicine specialist can help you decide which strain to try for their treatment. Sativa strains are largely associated with stimulating feelings. This is why many patients prefer this strain for the daytime

Therapeutic effects of Sativas can include:

  • Increased energy
  • Increased appetite
  • Increased focus/creativity
  • Reduced depression
  • Reduced headaches/nausea

Sativa side-effects can include increased feelings of anxiety and paranoia. If these are the predominant feelings you are experiencing with your Sativa strain prescription, speak with us to re-evaluate your treatment. Indica strains produce a more physical effect in most patients. Because they tend to provide a sedated feeling in people, Indica strains are often used at nighttime.

Therapeutic effects can include:

  • Reduced stress
  • Reduced spasms
  • Reduced pain/inflammation
  • Reduced nausea
  • Reduced frequency of seizures
  • Reduced intra-ocular pressure
  • Promotes sleep

Some patients may experience unwanted fatigue or "fuzziness" from Indica strains. If this is the case, speak to us about adjusting your medical marijuana prescription.
