Top Strains for Pain Relief and Anxiety

Welcome Spaced Cadets! This blog will discuss the best strains for pain relief and anxiety. When you smoke do you not feel great pain relief or is your anxiety up that day? These strains are known to help with chronic pain and reduce your anxiety levels. Follow along to find the right strains for you. 


There could be a few reasons the strains you smoke are making your anxiety go up or not help alleviate that pain. Are you smoking Indica or Sativa? Sativa strains are known to raise people’s anxiety because of the upper high you get. Indica strains are known to help relax your body and mind. 


There are a few strains that are great for both pain and anxiety. Northern Lights, Ice Cream Cake, and Wedding Cake are all Indica dominant. Northern Lights is a cross between Afghani X Thai. It helps with chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia. Ice Cream Cake is crossed with Wedding Cake and Gelato #33. Ice Cream Cake is known for its strong properties of reducing your anxiety. Wedding Cake is a cross between Triangle Kush and Animal Mints. Wedding Cake helps with chronic pain, depression, and nausea. 


Here is a list of other strains that are popular in helping pain or anxiety. These strains are all indica dominant with different looks, flavors, and highs. Each strain has a unique terpene profile, THC levels, aroma, and effects.
