The 10 Best Weed Strains for Anxiety in 2019
If I had a superhero name, it would be Anxiety Girl, because I am able to jump to the worst conclusion in a single bound!
But really though, anxiety affects all of us. Some of us more than others.
I always appreciate when there’s an all-natural remedy to my anxiety woes which is why I put together this list of the best weed strains for anxiety in 2019.
1. Grandaddy Purple (GDP)
Grandaddy Purple (or GDP) is one of the best cannabis strains for treating anxiety because of its lovely balance of cerebral and physical effects.
This heavy indica is also perfect for combating pain, stress, insomnia, appetite loss, and a number of other pesky issues.
This is definitely a nighttime strain, as its powers of relaxation are impressive.
2. Pineapple Express
Pineapple Express is one of the best cannabis strains for creative escapes to combat anxiety.
This hard-hitting hybrid is sativa-dominant which means it’ll chill you out, but will still provide a long-lasting invigorating buzz perfect for daytime.
If your favorite way to abolish anxiety is to get creative, this is the perfect strain to kick off your crafty day.
Okay, so the name may be doing the opposite for your anxiety than you probably want it to.
But try not to let the name fool you.
This is definitely one of the best weed strains to obliterate negative vibes.
This award-winning strain is known for its sativa-dominant hybrid buzz that often provides a long-lasting head high that maintains a sense of mental clarity and opens the door for creative, positive thinking.
If you feel anxiety in your temples, or in your head, you’ll definitely want to keep reading.
Headband is one of the best weed strains for physical anxiety because many Headband explorers report that the effects of this strain create a slight pressure around the crown of their head. Kind of like, well, a headband.
This relaxing strain is a go-to for anyone combating stress, anxiety, and/or pain.
5. Blue Cheese
Another fantastic end-of-the-day strain, Blue Cheese is yet another heavy indica that has proven to be one of the best weed strains for alleviating anxiety.
Not only does this strain do wonders for stress relief, but most of Blue Cheese explorers report feelings of relaxation, euphoria, and straight up happiness.
And if those three things aren’t a remedy for anxiety on their own, then I don’t know what is!
6. Purple Urkle
Anyone else love to sleep their anxiety away? Me too.
For those of us like-minded folks, Purple Urkle is definitely among the best weed strains for smoking yourself into a peaceful and anxiety-free slumber.
This dreamy strain is a favorite among anyone looking to evaporate their anxiety, along with treating insomnia or sleep-related issues and achieving full-body pain relief.
7. Fire OG
Out of all of the OG strains, this is one is definitely one of the strongest.
Which makes it among one of the best weed strains for anxiety.
Fire OG is a true hybrid strain and a cross between OG Kush and San Fernando Valley OG Kush F3.
Even though this strain is an OG, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a strong indica. In fact, some Fire OG explorers have reported there being distinctly sativa effects mixed in with the relaxing indica effects.
This strain is naturally high in THC, but also naturally high in CBD.
AC/DC is one of the best weed strains for treating anxiety because of its unique 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD.
Both of these compounds working in tandem have proven beneficial effects among many of AC/DC’s fans.
We recommend this strain for winding down during a relaxing night in, a post-workout chill, or for falling into a blissful sleep.
9. Strawberry Cough
Strawberry Cough is one of the best weed strains for treating anxiety, and specifically, social anxiety.
This is a sativa strain, so it has a lot of potential to uplift your mood, keep you motivated and focused, but also relaxed enough to let your anxiety float away.
