One of the most common applications for medical marijuana is pain, whether it’s inflammation,headaches, neuropathic pain, muscle soreness, spinal injury, fibromyalgia, or cramps.

The Indica and Sativa subspecies differ in their medicinal properties. Sativa strains produce more of a euphoric high, lifting the consumer’s mood and therapeutically relieving stress.
