No two strains are alike and each strain has a different affect. Knowing how each one might affect you might be the best thing if you’re going to use the plant at its highest potential. Medical Jane gives us that understanding in an article that was put out not to long ago. The article gives you the understanding how each strain affects you and 4 classic “Go-To-Strains” for certain situations.   

Understanding How Each Strain Affects You Is Helpful

It should be noted the individual batches of each strain can vary as well. This is due to factors like the plant’s phenotype (observable characteristics) and growth environment.

Being mindful of this, one can reasonably presume how a particular batch of medical cannabis might affect them simply by knowing its genetics. This not an exact science, particularly when it comes to predicting the effects of a F1 hybrid like Candy Land (Granddaddy Purp x Girl Scout Cookies).

Nonetheless, a general understanding of a strain’s parents can provide a general idea of what to expect. It typically requires a certain amount of trial and error research for patients to fully understand how different strains affect them. This, of course, can become problematic for the new medical marijuana patient in need of reliable pain relief at different times of day. Finding the right strain for each situation becomes vital.

Reliable Cannabis Strains for you to Consider

In an attempt to help you determine what strain is right for you, here is a breakdown of 4 classic strains that Medical Jane considers a “go-to strain” for certain situations.

Blue Dream

The Blue Dream strain is one of the most recognizable varieties of cannabis available today. It is a 50/50 hybrid of consisting of Blueberry and Haze genetics, providing for a mellow relief for body and mind. This combined with Blue Dream‘s appealing aroma and flavor makes it a great option for first time anxiety patients who are unsure what strain is best for them.


Green Crack

The Green Crack cannabis strain is the epitome of a Sativadominant hybrid. As a result, it has become a staple in the cannabis industry with its racy, energetic effects. The Green Crack strain would be perfect for patients who prefer to medicate in the morning and/or afternoon. In addition to a boost of energy, it tends to help improve one’s level of focus. The effects might be compared to Adderall in that respect.


Grand Daddy Purp

Unlike the Green Crack strain, the Granddaddy Purp (GDP) strain is beloved for its ability to counter insomnia naturally. It is an Indica-dominant hybrid and is an effective analgesic in addition to it’s ability to induce sleep. It is a great option for patients suffering from chronic pain or stress, particularly if planning to medicate at night.


Jack Herer

Contrastingly, the Haze strain is notable for its effectiveness in the morning. Like the Green Crack strain, it tends to improve one’s focus and lift their spirits. However, Haze is typically less intense. Due to this, varieties of Haze have been used in a plethora of hybrid seed projects. The Jack Herer strain is a great example of a hybrid with heavy Haze influence.
