4 Most Effective Medical Strains to Grow

We all know that medicine can be expensive, no matter if your medication is prescription pills, over the counter medicine from the store. If you´re like millions of other medical cannabis users, you spend hundreds of dollars at the dispensary each week purchasing the medicine you need to get through the day. It would be much more inexpensive for you to grow your own medicine. That´s how we as humans used to do it, right? What are the best medical strain to grow?

We took a look at some of the best strains for medical use and compared their yields, their uses and how simple they are to grow. Here’s what we came up with.

Super Skunk Automatic

Super Skunk automatic is perfect for medical users, as well as those of you just starting out on your grow. The medical strain is prized by patients for its ability to relieve pain, stress and anxiety, with none of the residual couchlock that comes with a lot of indicas. It tastes pretty damn good too.

Super Skunk Automatic is an autoflowering strain that requires little maintenance and withstands things that would make other plants wither in fear. You don’t have to separate the male plants from the females or change the lighting cycles. You don’t even have to prune your Super Skunk Automatic plants!

    One to One

    One to One is so named because it has an even 1:1 THC to CBD ratio, which is pretty rare among cannabis plants, even medical strains. This hybrid strain is a favorite of medical users because of the high CBD content and its ability to both focus and relax the user. This munchie inducing strain is also great for cancer patients who’ve lost their appetites as a result of chemotherapy.

    This strain flowers pretty quickly compared to other strains (7-9 weeks) and emits a delicious citrus aroma as it flowers.

    Girl Scout Cookies

    Girl Scout Cookies is one of those wonderful strains you can smoke whenever you’re suffering from a migraine, experiencing menstrual cramps, or just having a crappy day. It’s no wonder this strain is a favorite of medical and recreational users alike.

    This delectable strain produces beautiful flowers in colors of dark purple and a vivid bright green. GSC is stronger and heartier than other cannabis strains and is a huge fan of the great outdoors.

    Stawberry Cough

    This distinctive sativa hybrid is named for it’s uniquely sweet and fruity aroma, and delicious strawberry taste. This medical strain is a godsend for those suffering from depression, bipolar, and other mood disorders. It’s also a great strain for growing indoors. This strain is of course only available by clone only, but if you are lucky enough to obtain a clone of the original Strawberry Cough, it will yield wonderful results. Dutch Passion have their own version of Strawberry Cough, which is pretty close to the original.

    Of course, if you think about it, all strains can be medical strains depending on how you use them.
