Living with chronic pain is a challenge, whether it makes it difficult to do your daily activities or keeps you tossing and turning at night. Whether you have ongoing pain, headaches or muscle aches, try these cannabis strains if you're curious about the effectiveness of medical marijuana for pain relief.
According to the National Pain Report, ACDC is one of the highest-ranked strains for pain relief because of its high CBD levels. These chemicals, called cannabinoids, act on neurotransmitters in the brain. This may produce the euphoric and pain-dampening effects reported by medical cannabis users. ACDC offers pain relief with no intoxication because of its relatively low THC content. This makes the strain an outstanding choice for chronic pain patients who want to stay alert throughout the day.

With parents Sour Diesel and Sensi Star, Death Star is a potent strain that creates a long-lasting euphoria that induces a state of blissful relaxation.
