Firstly, it's important to identify the strain that is going to be best suited to your needs. There are two types of cannabis plants- One being Indica and the other being Sativa. Each strain has its own unique range of effects on the mind and body.
Below is a chart that very loosely categorizes the two different plant types, however, it should be noted that when it comes down to selecting the best strain for your needs, Terpenes and specific cannabinoid content are going to help narrow your search.
Increased mental relaxation
Decreased acute pain
Eases chronic pain
Increases focus and creativity
We recognize the need for patients to be able to experiment with different strain types in order to find the one best suited for you. National Compassion offers *Sample Packs* which include 3.5 grams of each strain type- One of Indica, Sativa and a Hybrid. Some patients may also find it useful to keep notes about their dosing to keep track of the effects of each strain.
