5 Cannabis Strains for Stress & Anxiety


Granddaddy Purple or GDP for short, is an indica strain with a sweet grape-like flavor that is considered to be one of the best cannabis strains for stress & anxiety because it promotes restfulness. GDP is regularly used by people suffering from clinical pain or stress and anxiety resulting from life events. [1] If you’ve been searching for the perfect cannabis strain for stress relief, consider Granddaddy Purple. 


Jack Herer, named after its creator, is actually one of the most well-known strains of cannabis in the world. It is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain offering its user a nice mixture of both indica and sativa effects. It’s an excellent marriage of the cerebral sativa dominant smoking experience with the physical indica-dominant tingling sensations. [1] This strain is also known for increasing mental stimulation and feelings of creativity in many users. 


Strawberry Cough is well known for its ability to relax the mind and body alike, making it an excellent choice for those suffering from stress and anxiety. 


Cannatonic is a high CBD strain containing myrcene, a terpene known for helping the body relax and reducing feelings of anxiety. When reducing anxiety is a top priority and keeping a clear head is a must, a high CBD strain should be the strain of choice. If Cannatonic is not an option, look for other high-CBD strains such as Harlequin, Canna-Tsu or Harle-Tsu. [2]


Similar to Cannatonic, AC/DC is a high CBD strain. AC/DC has a THC to CBD ratio of 1:20. This means that the strain contains a much higher amount of CBD, than THC. [3] This hybrid strain is known for providing users with feelings of relaxation, pain, and stress relief without the “high”.
