As MMJ strains evolve, so does market demand. Once thought of as a joke and an excuse to get high, extensive research into the medical benefits of marijuana is proving that a buzz isn’t the only thing you can get from that prized nug. Where there are two primary cannabinoids that make up marijuana, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannibidiol), those strains highest in THC fall in the sativa group and are favored more by recreational users. That said, the philosophical mind expanding high, which can also prompt a thorough vacuuming of your apartment, from THC does have a few medical benefits.
The high one gets from the THC laden high is more of a cerebral high, with many of the following benefits.
• Feelings of well-being and at-ease
• Up-lifting and cerebral thoughts
• Stimulates and energizes
• Increases focus and creativity
• Fights depression
Though limited, when compared to the more CBD fueled indica strains that have a plethora of medical benefits, THC sativa highs comes a few medical advantages as well. Those advantages include pain relief, appetite stimulation, a reduction in nausea and vomiting, and the suppression of muscle spasms. Here are some strains may provide medical relief:
• A-train — temporary relief of occular pressure for glaucoma sufferers
• Dr. Grinspoon — chronic pain including spinal cord injuries and hypertension
• Vortex — for those patients unable to eat or those who want to increase their appetite
• Jack Herer — sativa — fibromyalgia
