This week, we’re doing our best to prepare first-time medical marijuana users for the best experience possible. We’ve gone over the basics, and now, no matter what method of consumption you’ve decided is best for you, we’re going to recommend the best types of weed for your first experience.
One way to choose the right type of weed for your first encounter is to look for strains with high levels of CBD. CBD is the non-psychoactive compound that produces calm, relaxing effects. It’s great for pain relief and counteracting the anxiety sometimes associated with THC.
Harlequin is very high in CBD, which balances out the effects of the sativa. The CBD:THC ratio of 5:2 makes this strain very effective for treating pain and anxiety while counteracting THC’s paranoia property.
This pure indica strain has an earthy smell and is ideal for first-time medical marijuana users. It’s helpful for many illnesses including nausea, anxiety, and stress. Although its broad medical benefits make it helpful to many patients, this type of weed is pretty strong, so be sure to start with a very low dose.
Another CBD-rich strain, ACDC produces minimal psychoactive effects. You can expect to feel a relaxed body sensation and pain relief. It is especially useful for medical marijuana patients looking for relief of epilepsy and anxiety. You can expect a full body high.
This sativa strain is known to produce happy, uplifted feelings. It is one of few sativa strains we suggest for first-time medical marijuana users. After using just a small amount of Jack Herer, patients typically begin feeling clear-headed, creative, and happy right away.
