If you are like 1 in 2 people who suffer from anxiety and are thinking of taking cannabis to help you, this post is for you. Here are the 7 best weed strains to treat your anxiety.
Before using cannabis to treat your anxiety, it’s important you understand the different types of strains available to you and determine which one best suits your preference.
- THC: If you’ve ever smoked weed growing up, chances are that 99% of the time you were smoking a THC strain. They produce a euphoric, sometimes sleepy high that either gets you cleaning up your whole house on a Sunday afternoon or melting into the bottom of your couch watching Netflix. While some find THC’s high to be relaxing and treat their anxiety flares, others may feel the exact opposite and actually feel more anxious.
- CBD – Think hard. You’ve probably heard the term CBD before and even though it is less common than THC, it’s making some big noise in the medical world. CBD is known to treat your insomnia, naesusa, stress, psoriasis, bad back…and of course, anxiety. The ‘miracle’ strain which is taking over the bathroom cabinet shelves of every family in the US is the most preferred solution to treating anxiety. Especially if you prefer little to no euphoric high.
1. White Widow
White Widow is one the most recognized strains of cannabis. A cross between a Brazilian sativa landrace and a resin-heavy South Indian indica. This dominant hybrid offers a full-bodied high that is euphoric, brain stimulating, and ‘spacey’, which users say is a perfect blend to relieve various mood disorders.
A euphoric high and spacey high that numbs the body.
2. Sour OG
Sour OG is a hybrid with a cross of the two most popular strains in the world (Sour Diesel and OG Kush). The dominant hybrid is a real favorite among smokers who enjoy a balanced buzz. Expect dense and round buds, stick icky trichomes, and a taste of ‘lemony-pine’ (we totally just made that up).

3. Cherry Pie
