9 Best MMJ Strains for Treating Anxiety

Anxiety can attack a person in many different ways. For people who suffer from generalized anxiety disorder, just being out and about, living a normal life, can be a real ordeal, whereas acute anxieties and phobias can render victims totally unable to face even rewarding activities, such as flying in a plane or asking an attractive stranger on a date. One way to cope with these crippling anxieties is to get a medical marijuana card online, and use your 420 card to acquire some of the MMJ strains that are especially good at alleviating the symptoms of anxiety.

Here is our list of the nine best MMJ strains for anxiety. 

Strawberry Cough

Many people report that certain MMJ strains, such as Strawberry Cough, help them enjoy being out in public.

This high-THC strain has a very uplifting high. It gives the user a real pep as well as some nice and relaxed psychoactive effects.

Many people report that this strain makes them really enjoy being out in public, meeting people and chatting. It has a THC content of 18 percent and a lovely strawberry flavor. This strain makes you lively and alert while also maintaining a solid sense of control and calm — a great strain for the anxious patient to pick up with their medical card California.

Blue Dream

A high-THC hybrid that is very popular with cannabis card carrying anxiety sufferers, Blue Dream is predominantly sativa, so its effects are energizing and enlivening. This makes the user clear-headed, happy and eager to go out and be social. This strain has a nice little hint of indica in the mix, too, so the happy energy is accompanied by a pleasant calm and relaxed sensation in the body. Ahh … lovely.

Stress Killer

In times of high anxiety, a patient may benefit from certain MMJ strains such as Stress Killer, which brings on a mild, sedative high. This is a high-CBD strain with relatively low THC levels, so the effects are felt mostly in the body, and the mind is only lightly massaged by a very gentle psychoactive high. Stress Killer’s physically relaxing properties can be the perfect antidote to an acute case of nerves.

Alternative Cannabinoid Dietary Cannabis

Some MMJ strains are breed as a form of dietary marijuana.

ACDC, as you may have guessed from the catchy name, was bred specifically as a form of dietary marijuana. It is certainly good to cook with or juice, but it’s also great smoked or vaped. It is a high-CBD strain with minimal THC, so a very mild psychoactive high flutters above a very calm and relaxed physical demeanor. A clear mind operating inside a highly relaxed and mellow body is often a recipe for success, especially in a task that would otherwise provoke anxiety. ACDC is proving to be one of the very popular MMJ strains among anxious patients.

Harlequin

This solid and dependable strain of medical cannabis has a CBD to THC ratio of 5:2. It has quite a bodily high, but it leaves the mind pretty clear. Using Harlequin allows a patient to feel physically calm and relaxed without compromising rationality or the ability to think clearly in any big way.

Afghan Kush

For anxiety sufferers who like to knock themselves out from time to time, this potent indica is the ideal strain. With your California marijuana card, you can get Afghan Kush at all good dispensaries. It’s a favorite of big-time stoners the world over because its powerful punch brings on deep relaxation from the first hit. It is excellent at alleviating the symptoms of acute anxiety and bringing on a deep relaxation and dreamlike sense of calm. Best not to call your mother-in-law on this stuff.

Girl Scout Cookies

GSC is an iconic strain of herb that people from Amsterdam to Anaheim, California, to Afghanistan have been using to calm their nerves and enliven their mood for many years. It has a high THC content of approximately 25 percent, so it packs quite a psychoactive punch. A lot of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) patients with high anxiety use GSC to replenish their levels of a THC-like brain compound called anandamide, which studies have shown is often deficient in PTSD sufferers a

Catatonic

This pleasant high-CBD hybrid strain has a CBD to THC ratio of 1:1, so it is a very safe bet to use as a mild balm to cool the sting of anxiety feelings when they arise. This strain is relaxing without being overly strong, and it leaves the mind clear and focused.

Canna-Tsu

This strain is similar to Catatonic. It has a high CBD content that allows the patient to relax the body while maintaining an alert mind. The low THC content means you can focus on work while alleviating anxious bodily sensations. This is a practical anti-anxiety strain of medical cannabis.
