Top 5 Cannabis Strains for Gastrointestinal Pain and Discomfort



Gastrointestinal (GI) pain is an umbrella term that is used to describe a range of common disorders that affect the gut. These include pain or discomfort caused by diarrhea, constipation, flatulence, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, and more. When it comes to the treatment of gut problems, most people still aren’t aware that cannabis can actually help. While it isn’t a miracle cure for stomach disorders, cannabis can work complementarily with other therapies to provide relief or prevent further complications.



These are the top 5 strains that best suited for GI pain and discomfort:



tangerine dream

  • Tangerine Dream is a delicious but potent hybrid that is recommended for seasoned users. The THC content of this strain can sometimes go up to 25%, although it’s a top choice for knocking out stomach pain while offering energy and euphoria to get through the day. Tangerine Dream is a popular choice among patients suffering from gastrointestinal discomfort and a host of other conditions; it has a refreshingly zesty and sweet citrus flavor. This strain is loved for its uplifting properties and is also used for the treatment of fatigue, depression, stress, and lack of appetite.


blue dream

  • Blue Dream is a sativa-dominant hybrid that is widely used by patients that both new and experienced to cannabis. Even seasoned users continue to return to this strain because it’s extremely effective in addressing numerous ailments especially those that originate in the gut. The sweet berry flavor of Blue Dream makes it a delight to medicate with without causing you to get into a couch lock. Blue Dream is a great choice for daytime pain medication while also helping patients treat headaches, insomnia, depression, and stress. Blue Dream is an excellent versatile strain – a must-have for any patient whether you have GI pain or not.



lsd strain

  • LSD is an indica-dominant hybrid that gets its name from its strong psychoactive effects and a strong head high. In some cases LSD strains can have a THC content of as much as 24%, but patients love it because of its lemony taste and the smooth smoking experience. Because LSD is an indica-dominant strain it’s best used for medicating in afternoons or early evenings, but if you microdose you can use this strain any time of the day. LSD is widely used for the treatment of pain and will help patients manage GI discomfort effectively and with quick relief. LSD is also used for the treatment of fatigue, depression, stress, and lack of appetite. However, some patients report feeling an intense body-numbing high around two hours after smoking LSD; if it’s your first time to try this strain be sure to do so in the comforts of your own home.



cannatonic strains

  1. Cannatonic is world-famous for its legendary high CBD, low THC content. This strain is among the most famous when it comes to its outstanding medical and healing benefits that few others can rival. For patients suffering from extreme GI pain and discomfort but don’t want to experience a psychedelic high, Cannatonic comes highly recommended. Cannatonic can effectively treat pain as well as muscle spasms, anxiety, and other mental disorders. Aside from being incredibly powerful for its therapeutic properties, Cannatonic also has a complex flavor that starts out with a pungent pine aroma with light undertones of citrus. Cannatonic will knock out GI pain right out of the park but its effects are short-lived so you may find yourself having to medicate two or three times per day in severe cases.



harlequin strain

  • Harlequin is a rare strain, but with its high CBD content sometimes reaching as much as 11%, this is an extremely valuable medicinal strain especially for patients suffering from GI disorders. Harlequin is a pleasure to medicate with, thanks to its sweet fruity flavor with tones of berry gum and ginger. Harlequin will help relax you and won’t get you high, but don’t underestimate its power to treat chronic pain. Harlequin has subtle but effective pain-killing properties, and is also used to treat fatigue, inflammation, depression, and stress. Because of its non psychoactive properties, Harlequin delivers a happy and euphoric buzz ideal for medicating anytime of the day.
