THE BEST STRAINS - INSOMNIA AND SLEEP
Sweet dreams with the right strain
"When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep... and you're never really awake. With insomnia, nothing feels completely real. Things seem far away. Reality is like a fuzzy copy of the original."
What insomnia and poor sleepers really need is information. Which strains of medical marijuana work best? What are the best choices? How do I choose? To best answer these questions we need good data. For a start, we sourced the opinions of the largest weed websites. Then checked that the strain data included a cannabinoid profile listing the essentials psychoactive (THC) and non psychoactive (CBD) components and other components like CBD and terpenes.
VAPE IS THE BEST WAY TO TEST A STRAIN
While a lot is known about the effects of THC, CBD and marijuana's other ingredients, how a particular strain reacts with a particular patient can be only determined (at this point) through trial and error. The best way to determine which medicine works best is to use a vape. Why? The response time is only a few minutes and effects wear off in an hour-ish. In contrast, it might take eight hours for an oral dose of oil to wear off.
VAPE SAFETY ISSUES
Some people have concerns about using a vape, associate it with smoking cigarettes and worry about lung cancer. These ideas are not founded in any clinical research or study. Inhalation marijuana medicines is actually a prospective therapy on the radar of researchers for asthma and other lung conditions and is NOT associated with diseases of the lung, including cancer. In fact, THC and CBD, the major ingredients of most marijuana strains, have been found to have very significant anti-cancer, tumor killing properties.
Once you find a strain you like, you can then try oral, transdermal (creams) and other forms of your favored strain. Cannabis based medicines, oils in particular deliver relief for 8 hours or more, which is perfect for all night medication.

ADVICE ON TRYING NEW STRAINS
Once you decide on some strains you'd like to try, you can check with the major marijuana players, compare prices and confirm local availability. Remember that it is best to try strains with an established cannabinoid profile. You want to compare the amounts of each ingredient with the effects it produces.
Note too, the scent of the strains that work best for you. The fragrance is largely determined by a strain's terpene content. Terpenes are medicinal in their own right and can offset some of the side effects from THC, such as paranoia. So if a grape or blueberry scent strain worked well for you and you want to experiment further, try another variety with the same scent but differing amounts of THC and CBD and other cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG, and CBN.
