The strain, derived from parents Green Crack and Purple Punch, provides a smooth smoke infused with fruity flavours of berries, citrus, and grapes.
Below, we’ve chosen 5 cannabis strains that have been reported to be effective in assisting with chronic pain.
OG Kush produces large yields after a brief flowering period. Plants are capable of reaching heights of up to 160cm indoors, producing yields of between 425–475g/m² after 7–9 weeks of bloom. Plants cultivated outdoors grow to substantially taller heights of 220cm, produce yields peaking at 550g/plant, and will ready to harvest during the month of October.
Chronic pain is a condition in which pain lingers for long periods of time. It reduces quality of life and can often be debilitating. Cannabis can be used to reduce these symptoms and temporarily kill pain. These 5 strains are effective for the job.
Royal Jack is easy to grow at home, with her flowers ready to harvest after only 10 weeks from seed. Indoor plants maintain tiny sizes of 40–80cm, making her possible to grow within modified boxes and cupboards. Although small, she’s still capable of producing yields of up to 400g/m². Outdoor plants grown to similar heights of 60–80cm and produce up to 120g/plant. For those looking to be particularly discreet, this strain is an excellent guerrilla grow option that has minimal chances of being discovered.
Cannabinoids THC and CBD are able to alter cannabinoid receptor signalling, resulting in modulated pain thresholds. Moreover, cannabis’ ability to inhibit pro-inflammatory molecules and work in synergy with the endogenous opioid system makes a compelling case for its potential to relieve neuropathic and inflammatory pain. There is much more to be explored regarding the relationship between chronic pain and cannabis, but research in the area appears promising.
Royal Jack is the autoflowering version of the legendary strain Jack Herer, named after the influential cannabis author and activist. Jack Herer is a sativa-dominant variety known for its clear-headed high, blissful sensations, and reliable pain-relieving potential. The breeders of Royal Jack harnessed these therapeutic properties and merged them with a ruderalis variety to make the process of growing this plant much faster and easier. These flowers contain a moderate THC content of 16%, enough to reduce symptoms of pain without being too overwhelming. Her genetic profile of 40% sativa, 30% indica, and 30% ruderalis induces a motivating and inspiring effect that helps people stay positive, whilst subtly stoning the body and reducing physical sensations of pain. Her intense tastes of pepper, herbs, and spices make every hit a pleasant one.
While a 1999 study commissioned by the White House and conducted by the Institute of Medicine also recognized the role that cannabis can play in treating chronic pain: “After nausea and vomiting, chronic pain was the condition cited most often to the IOM study team as a medicinal use for marijuana.”
There have been various studies on the effect of cannabis on Pain and its related illnesses.
After reviewing a series of trials in 1997, the U.S. Society for Neuroscience concluded that substances similar to or derived from marijuana could benefit the more than 97 million Americans who experience some form of pain each year.”
Persistent and disabling pain can have numerous and sometimes multiple causes. Among them are cancer; AIDS; sickle cell anaemia; multiple sclerosis; defects or injuries to the back, neck and spinal cord; arthritis and other rheumatic and degenerative hip, joint and connective tissue disorders; and severe burns. Pain is not a primary condition or injury, but rather a severe, frequently intolerable symptom that varies in frequency, duration, and severity according to the individual.
Here at Seedsman, we offer a variety of strains that will assist people suffering with Pain in alleviating their symptoms.
