I am pretty new to the whole medical marijuana scene, and therefore am not a complete expert when it comes to the whole variety of cannabis strains. With that being said, I have partaken in my fair share of medical cannabis since getting my certification card, and will fully admit that the strain you smoke changes the effects you encounter. Experiencing pain, insomnia, and muscle weakness, I need a fairly strong dose of marijuana to help relieve my symptoms. That is why I have decided to post a list of my favorite strains of medical marijuana, and what makes them so awesome.

So, without any further fuss, here are my favorite strains:

  • Blueberry Yum Yum: A real strong boy, this strain will hit you hard and last a LONG time. The smell and look of this strain looks like a bud of weed and a blueberry had a baby. The smell is sweet, as is the flavor. This smoke is amazing, although I would make sure you don’t smoke too much, or you WILL be extraordinarily affected.
  • Pineapple Express: Just like the movie of the same name, this strain is wild. I would not go so far as to claim that it is as strong as the Blueberry Yum Yum, but this spicy sweet smoke will definitely get you to where you want to go. I keep a bit of this for when I am feeling really down, as it really seems to help when I am feeling depressed.
  • OG Kush: One of the strains that my caregiver recommended, OG Kush is really something else. I would say the smell is kind of like a Pine Tree, but also mixed with that classic cannabis smell. Like Blueberry Yum Yum, you can’t mess around with the Kush. A few hits off of this will put you on your butt for a while, where you will be the most relaxed you have felt in a long time.
  • Death Star: Darth Vader would be proud. This strain of medical cannabis is so strong that even an evil Sith Lord would be jealous of the power it yields. The scent of this strain is awful, with a large skunk reek, but each hit will knock you down. Smoke this at night time, as each drag will make you progressively tired. I use this when I cannot sleep, and end up being in bed for 10-12 hours.

This is by no means comprehensive, and I am sure my tastes will change as I become more of a medical marijuana expert. What are your favorite strains and why?
