CBD vs THC: Which One is Right For Me?

by Krissy Ward

     If you’re looking to get into the natural pain relief game, I’m here to help. I will break it all down so you can decide which choice would be a good fit for you.

     Many people are taking the natural route when it comes to healthcare; Cannabis is one of the more popular options for natural pain relief.

     Cannabis, also known as marijuana can be a great alternative to traditional pain-relieving medications. Figuring out which marijuana strain, Cannabidiol (CBD) or tetracannabinol (THC) product is the one for you can be “a bit much”, so let’s see if I can help.

     The main difference between THC and CBD is that THC causes psychoactive effects whereas CBD causes no high.

     While I prefer medical marijuana, there are many who would rather not take any THC. If you live in an area of the world where there can be legal ramifications, CBD may be the move for you. Calypso CBD has a wide collection of CBD products. Before my grandmother dons her “super granny” cape, she uses their oil for her aches and pains. To date, Calypso CBD oil has been the only CBD product that has worked for her.

     Now, if you’re curious about which marijuana strain is the one for you, take a look at some of these strains. According to Denver Dispensaries, these are some of the best strains for chronic pain.


     ACDC is one of the highest-ranked strains for pain relief because of its high CBD levels. ACDC offers pain relief with low intoxication because of its low THC. This makes the strain a great choice for people who need to relieve chronic pain while staying alert throughout the day.

Sour Diesel 

     Sour Diesel is uplifting and has a mindful high, making it easy to ignore aches and pains. Sour diesel allows you to function throughout the day without putting you in a couch-locked state.

Master Kush

      Master Kush helps you relax as it relieves chronic pain as well as anxiety. Master Kush is perfect for bedtime and will give you a good night’s rest.


     Harlequin will help soothe your pain without impairing your ability to think. If you are looking for a fast-acting strain that can be used during the day, this may be the one for you.

Death Star

     Death Star creates a long-lasting euphoria that induces a state of blissful relaxation. It can help relieve depression and also nausea.

     If you are not in need of immediate pain relief and prefer a discreet way to use medical marijuana, an edible may be ideal for you. Edibles are like slow release tablets, they’ll last long, but it’ll take awhile to kick in. Figuring out the right dosage for you may take some trial and error. You may want to start off eating a small amount as you can always go back for more if it is not enough.

     When I’m in the California area I will use edibles, I get them from Dangerously Delicious Edibles on Instagram. She is a nurse turned chef with a goal to heal the world. Her gummies are quite delicious, might I add. She has even worked with me to help create sugar free gummies for my diabetic friends. She also makes a rub that I use when my back starts to hate me.

     However you choose to relieve your pain, I hope this blog is helpful in your decision. Like all medical advice, please consult with your doctor before making any decisions.
