Almost all of us can admit to having feelings of depression at some point in our lives. And it can often be hard to overcome those feelings. Luckily, there are many strains of marijuana you can use to help battle your depression.
Here are 10 of the best strains for battling depression:
1. Jack Herer
This sativa strain is known for producing a euphoric feeling in users. It contains limonene, one of the best terpenes for improving a person’s mood.
2. Pineapple Express
Another strain high in limonene content, Pineapple Express is basically a one-way ticket to Happy Town and is known as one of the most uplifting marijuana strains. Perhaps that’s whye they named a comedy movie after it.
While most marijuana strains that produce euphoric feelings are high in THC, Harlequin is one that actually has a 1:1 ratio between THC and CBD. So not only will it help improve your mood, but if there are any physical symptoms causing your depression, it can help with that as well.
One of the biggest symptoms of depression can be a lack of focus or mental fogginess. Cannatonic is a great strain for both improving mood as well as improving focus, allowing you to tackle tasks that you might not otherwise have been able to do.
Another strain with uplifting properties, XJ-13 also produces a pleasant citrusy aroma. So not only will your brain feel more euphoric, but your environment will improve as well.
While Pennywise the Clown is probably the worst thing to help with your depression, the Pennywise marijuana strain is a very effective solution. Another strain high in CBD, this stain is known to give a nice mellow high to help you get through the day.
7. Laughing Buddha
As the name suggests, the Laughing Buddha strain will put you in the mood to…well…laugh. It’s one of the best strains at producing upbeat and happy vibes, and even the dumbest Dad joke will seem like the most hilarious line ever while using it.
8. Sour Kush
If you’re an experienced marijuana user looking for something particularly powerful to help improve your mood, then Sour Kush is a great choice. This hybrid of Sour Diesel and OG Kush will create a powerful high that will help you forget all of your problems.
9. OG Kush
Unlike Sour Kush, OG Kush will not deliver an incredibly powerful high. Instead, it’s more about relaxing the mind and body for a nice mellow experience. It’ll definitely help improve your mood when you’re feeling down.
10. Northern Lights
One of the most popular marijuana strains around, Northern Lights will help you forget about all your negative thoughts and just relax. It’s one of the best strains at treating insomnia as well, so if you’re depression is keeping you up at night, then you should definitely check this strain out.
