What Medical Marijuana Strain Should I Use?
With so many medical marijuana strains available, are you left feeling lost? CannaSOS offer a simple way to help find your perfect medicine.
These days, there are more strains of cannabis than ever in history. With so many options, you can get a strain perfectly suited to your medical needs. But with such a large pool of varieties and so little standardized information, how can anyone who isn’t a professional possibly find what they are looking for?
The gaps in the search system
Right now, the cannabis industry seeks to standardize the way we label strains. Some researchers are even compiling genetic databases of thousands of kinds of cannabis. But with the concentration on data for growers and dispensaries, a glaring hole has arisen.
While growers and professionals have ways to look up what they want (lineage, THC levels, etc.), patients need their own system. One based on experience, on symptoms.

Learning how each marijuana strain might affect you can go a long way towards utilizing the plant’s potential therapeutic benefits. If you want to find your perfect strain, only one site offers easy searchability and all the information you need.
