There’s no denying that dealing with constant physical discomfort is, well, a pain. Feeling poorly makes it difficult to do other things and dramatically reduces the quality of life. We also hear many people say that addressing their pain and getting it under control can be a serious challenge.
Pharmaceutical pain medications are known to be dangerous and addictive, so many people don’t want to get involved with them. Getting regular massages or other types of physical therapy is expensive. For that reason, many people advocate for the potential or perceived benefits of medical marijuana.
People with chronic pain have enjoyed cannabis for thousands of years already, so the relationship with the plant for that reason is well documented. Many of our recreational cannabis customers and medical marijuana patients say they feel a lot better about turning to a plant instead of other potential alternatives. While Colorado residents can be prescribed medical marijuana for severe pain, even many of our recreational cannabis customers say they visit our Denver dispensary because they enjoy the way cannabis makes them feel physically.
What are the top cannabis strains for body discomfort & pain?
Whether you’re a medical marijuana patient or a recreational customer, it’s important to know that not all strains are the same. The different combinations of terpenes and cannabinoids give every strain its own unique characteristics, and these nuances go way deeper than just indica strains, hybrid strains, and sativa strains. With that in mind, here are some of our favorite strains for bodily discomfort and the associated fatigue.
1 – Space Cream
Grown by Hotsause Genetics, Space Cream is an indica-dominant hybrid. Our customers normally report feeling alert and uplifted after smoking space cream, but they say there is definitely some level of haziness involved. People who love this strain often say it makes them feel physically awesome without sapping them of their energy, which makes Space Cream a strong choice for social settings.
2 – Blue Dream
Since it’s a sativa-dominant strain, most people might not think of Blue Dream when they’re looking for something with a heavy body high. This cross of Blueberry and Haze definitely has a reputation for leading to invigorating mental states, but that’s not all it’s about. Our customers often say the energy they feel makes them ready to do things, and the soothing sensation keeps them going physically.
As an added benefit of this cannabis strain, it has a taste of sweet berries. This makes smoking a real pleasure even before the effects start to kick in. If your body doesn’t feel quite ready to get up and go about the day, you may be like our other patients who say Blue Dream gives them a boost. It’s no wonder this has earned a status as one of the best West Coast strains ever grown.
3 – White Diesel
White Diesel is the lovechild of White Widow and NYC Diesel. Its nature as a fairly balanced hybrid makes it an optimal strain for just about any time of day or night. Many of our customers describe the effects as being a perfect balance between an uplifted cerebral feeling and a mellow feeling of relaxation throughout the entire body. We often hear people say that this strain helps their mental and physical discomforts melt away to leave them feeling relaxed, happy, and focused. Whether you want to relax or get a few things done, White Diesel might be a strong option.
4 – Tango
Tango is an interesting strain where the effects seem to change depending on the amount you smoke. For example, many customers say a small amount leaves them feeling productive if a bit introspective. With higher amounts, though, Tango is said to lead to incredible feelings of deep relaxation. If you’re not looking for something that will put you to sleep, it’s best to treat this strain with some respect.
5 – Tangerine Haze
Most people who buy this strain say it makes them feel relaxed and relieved all around. This may be especially true in the mental capacity, but there definitely seems to be a bit of a body high involved. Tangerine Haze is a sativa-dominant hybrid with a lineage that includes NYC Diesel and G13 Haze. It originated in the Netherlands, where it was such a hit that it spread to Canada, Colorado, and the West Coast.
6 – Super Silver Haze
Also known as SSH, this strain was the first place winner at the High Times Cannabis Cup for three straight years. It won the top prize in 1997, 1998, and 1999, cementing its name among the all time greats with that threepeat. Skunk, Haze, and Northern lights combine to create this sticky, stinky strain. Some of the best genetics from all of the strains involved seem to show up, as this one is associate with body highs that seem to last a long time.
7 – Durban Poison
It’s been said that this is one of the best cannabis strains for productivity if you need to get through a long day. Some of our customers say it helps them overcome feelings of fatigue or soreness to get them back out to the mountains for a day of appreciating nature. Others say it makes them feel creative and focused. Either way, give it a shot.
8 – Cherry Diesel
You might also hear this premium cannabis strain called Cherry Turbo Diesel. That name isn’t especially creative, but it is accurate since this strain is the combination of Cherry OG and Turbo Diesel. As a balanced hybrid, this strain appeals to many of our customers for both daytime and nighttime smoking. Be careful, though, because this heavy hitter may sneak up on you.
9 – Princess Leia
Speaking of strains that offer the best of both worlds, Princess Leia is a definite keeper. This hybrid is a genetic mix of Cinderella 99 and Lemon Alien Dawg, and it hits hard. Our customers often say that it gives them that pleasant weightless feeling throughout their entire bodies, but without knocking them out or making them feel stuck to the couch.
10 – Sneeze #3
This strain is generally known more for producing a stimulating high. The cerebral and clear-headed sensation is ideal if you need to keep your wits about you, and it’s not all in your head. With THC levels as high as 35%, this strain is an absolute powerhouse that will definitely do a little something for your body as well.
