Medical Cannabis Strains their Benefits

When it comes to choosing a medical cannabis strain, many factors come into play. The ailment to be treated or relieved, the variety of medical cannabis seeds actually available to the patient, and the physical and psychological make-up of the user must all be taken into consideration.

Naturally, the most reliable and economical way to obtain a steady supply of medical cannabis is to grow your own, using cannabis seeds from an authentic and reputable source. Sensi Seeds have one of the biggest ranges of medical cannabis seeds available, many of which have won awards and continue to be consistent favourites among both recreational and medical cannabis users.

So which cannabis seeds should you choose? Medical cannabis (in fact, all cannabis seeds) can be split into three groups: Indica-dominant (for example Hindu Kush and Mr Nice, both 100% Indica);  Sativa-dominant (Silver Haze, Jamaican Pearl); and balanced hybrids (Fruity Juice, Jack Flash). All the strains given as examples are original to Sensi Seeds. Despite their reputation for premium and exclusive strains, Sensi Seeds also offer some surprisingly low-priced cannabis seeds – their Hindu Kush is only €33,- for 10 seeds.

Indica strains are often used to relieve muscle tension and spasms caused by multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome, rheumatism and arthritis, among other afflictions. Sativa strains relieve nausea and stimulate the appetite, which can be crucial to the survival of people undergoing chemotherapy or HIV/AIDS treatment, and can also help relieve migraine headaches, chronic pain and depression.

Hybrid cannabis seeds are useful for patients who want the particular effects of either Indica or Sativa, but find the full effects of either end of the medical cannabis spectrum somewhat overwhelming. Adding some Sativa to Indicas gives them a less soporific effect, whereas breeding a small proportion of Indica into a Sativa creates a more relaxed effect than the energetic high of pure Sativas, which can be experienced as somewhat hectic by some users.

Starting with the right cannabis seeds assures medical cannabis users that the strain they are obtaining, and will ultimately consume, is genuinely the strain they want. No matter how well-meaning medicinal cannabis suppliers are, they are usually unable to guarantee with complete certainty that their product is exactly what it is named as being – unless they too have grown it themselves from medical cannabis seeds!
