Top 5 Cannabis Strains for Disk and Sciatica Back Pain



Back pain is one of the most common kinds of pain experienced by a majority of the population. With over 65 million Americans suffering from one form of back pain at some point in their lives, there’s a clear need to find a safe and natural solution to this often debilitating and excruciating form of pain.



It can be difficult to avoid disk and sciatica back pain especially if your job requires you to spend most of your time sitting on a desk. However it also affects people whose jobs require them to do heavy lifting and other manually-intensive forms of labor.



There are many cannabis strains that have effectively helped patients manage back pain without side effects and without having to resort to opioids or painkillers. Various strains have different impacts on individuals, although many patients prefer strains that have a high THC content to combat disk and sciatica back pain. However, there are also patients who find that CBD-heavy strains are more effective.


If you are looking to use cannabis to treat disk and sciatica back pain, try these strains:

Green Crack is also ideal for those suffering from fatigue, leaving you feeling happy and euphoric with an amazing sense of focus.
