Cannabis Strains For Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the ovaries. Women are born with 2 ovaries, one located on each side of your uterus. Ovaries are responsible for a range of reproductive functions.

 

Detecting ovarian cancer can be difficult, because its symptoms are often similar to other less serious conditions including bloating and indigestion. Common symptoms of ovarian cancer include: abdominal bloating, pressure or pain in the abdomen, changes in bowel habits, developing constipation, unexplained weight loss, frequent urination, general discomfort in the pelvis, pain during sex, general fatigue, and changes in the menstrual cycle.

 

There are more than 30 different kinds of ovarian cancer, which are classified according to the cell type they’ve originated in. The most common types are epithelial tumors, followed by stromal tumors and germ cell tumors. With 21,000 people in the United States diagnosed with ovarian cancer annually, and 14,000 deaths resulting from it, finding a safe treatment method for this disease is critical. The good news is that the American Cancer Society says that the rate of ovarian cancer has slowed down in the last two decades.  

 

Treatment options vary depending on the stage of the cancer and the patient’s overall health. However, chemotherapy and surgery are the most common forms of treatment recommended to ovarian cancer patients.

 

If you or someone you know is undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer, here are the 5 best strains to help you cope:

 

AC/DC STRAIN

  • ACDC: A high-CBD sativa strain, ACDC is an excellent strain for pain relief without the high. The THC:CBD ratio of the strain is 1:20, so you can medicate without worry of any psychoactive effects. ACDC is actually a phenotype of the famous Cannatonic CBD strain, so its no surprise that with excellent genetics, this strain is one of the best non-psychoactive strains for cancer patients. It helps make you feel relaxed while treating pain as well as nausea, anxiety, and the side effects of chemotherapy.

 

CHAROLETTS WEB STRAIN

  • Charlotte’s Web: Perhaps the most famous high CBD strain in the world, Charlotte’s Web powerful cannabidiol content makes it a top choice for battling a range of cancer symptoms including those of ovarian cancer. Zero high but all of the potent healing properties of CBD in one calming strain is what you can expect when medicating with Charlotte’s Web.

 

BUBBA KUSH STRAIN

  • Bubba Kush: If you need some help getting some shut eye, look no further than Bubba Kush. This potent indica is renowned for its powerful sedating effects and a delicious flavor to boot. A few puffs of Bubba Kush will relax you from head to toe, mentally and physically, enough to provide relief from the painful symptoms of ovarian cancer. This strain imparts a euphoric, sleepy, and happy high, and in some patients it’s also been known to induce hunger which is ideal if your condition is causing you to lose your appetite. Just make sure to medicate in the comfort of your home for safety.

 

AMNESIA HAZE STRAIN

  • Amnesia Haze: Ovarian cancer patients who are looking for a strong yet uplifting high should try Amnesia Haze. This award-winning strain has its roots in Jamaican and South Asian landrace strains, Amnesia Haze has a deliciously pungent aroma and highly intoxicating sativa effects. If ovarian cancer is causing depression, Amnesia Haze’s euphoric and mental sharpening effects may be of help when consumed in the right dose. Patients have reported an improvement in mood with this strain, and it also has the ability to induce sedation to both mind and body for optimum pain relief. However, Amnesia Haze is known for being quite strong, so medicate with a small dose and increase gradually over time.

 

CHEMDAWG STRAIN

  • Chemdawg: Chemdag is a popular hybrid strain that has spawned many successful crosses. Chemdawg is where other famous strains OG Kush and Sour Diesel originated from. This strain is effective in knocking out symptoms of several conditions including ovarian cancer, particularly lack of appetite, depression, and pain. Chemdawg’s therapeutic abilities remain unparalleled for many, and patients love its euphoric and uplifting high. Be warned as Chemdawg’s THC levels vary between 18 to 26%, which may be too strong for an inexperienced patient. Like with other high THC medications, start slow and go from there.
