best medical cannabis strain seeds

Both cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which acts as a kind of ‘caretaker’ for many of the body’s functions. The ECS includes cannabinoid receptors which are found throughout the brain and body. This is why cannabis has so many different medicinal applications.

Sensi Seeds varieties offer a wide range of choice for medicinal growers to select the best types of cannabis for their requirements. Our unparalleled collection of strains was selected by the Dutch government as the basis for their medicinal cannabis program, and has been described by the late Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry Lester Grinspoon M.D. as ‘the most comprehensive cannabis gene-bank in the world.’

In the Netherlands, which has had a medicinal cannabis program since 2003, cannabis is prescribed for the following symptoms (among others):

The different medicinal effects of indica and sativa strains were previously thought to be determined by the levels of the two best-known cannabinoids, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Indica strains were believed to contain more CBD (cannabidiol) and less THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Sativa varieties were believed to have the opposite, greater amounts of THC and less CBD.

Together, cannabinoids and terpenes make up a whole greater than the sum of their parts. This synergy is known as the entourage effect. Research into the entourage effect is still in its early stages. A study from 2019 suggests it is likely that terpenes and terpenoids act upon the brain pathways involved with the effects of cannabis, or perhaps affect how THC is metabolised.

When indica is crossed with sativa, the result is a hybrid (or ‘cross-bred’) cannabis strain. Most commercially available cannabis seed strains are hybrids. The examples above are, strictly speaking, also hybrids. However, when the make-up of the strain heavily favours one type of cannabis over the other, they are described simply as indica or sativa (or indica-dominant and sativa-dominant).

As a very simple guide, here are the most common medicinal uses for indica and sativa cannabis:

Green Crack Punch stems from a breeding project involving Green Crack and Purple Punch. These two varieties exist at opposite ends of the indica-sativa spectrum, and thus are the perfect match for one another. Their offspring features a close balance of 60% sativa genetics and 40% indica, and produces up to 500g/m² after a flowering time of 8–9 weeks. Her colas grow tall and wide, boasting shades of purple, green, orange, and tinges of yellow. A THC content of 18% makes for a mellow and balanced high that soothes the body whilst keeping the mind alert and active.

This heavily indica-dominant cultivar produces some of the frostiest flowers we’ve ever seen. Her buds are small and compact, possess gorgeous lemon yellow pistils, and feature a layer of trichomes so thick they’re almost white. Sherbet Queen descended from Pink Panties and Sunset Sherbet, inheriting a monstrous THC content of 24% and a sweet and fruity terpene profile in the process. After a couple of tokes or a single bowl, you’ll feel a heavy blow to the body. Feel your muscles melt, your appetite surge, and your mind delve into philosophical and existential territory.

Fat Banana is the offspring of famed parent strains Banana and OG Kush. Naturally, she’s loaded with flavour and endowed with some serious potency. This indica-dominant cross features 70% indica genetics and 30% sativa. Her dense and resinous buds produce a titanic THC content of 25%. This cultivar delivers a tropical-flavoured body high that releases an internal pressure valve. Stress and anxiety melt away, and a sense of euphoria takes hold. Her fruity tastes make this strain a great addition to edibles such as banana bread and brownies.

Fat Banana won’t keep you waiting. She puts out a canopy of resinous buds a mere 7–8 weeks after initiating flowering. Indoor plants provide a yield of up to 400g/m² and won’t exceed 140cm in height. Plants grown outdoors offer strong returns of 450–500g/plant and ascend to a height of 200cm. Outdoor plants will be ready to trim during late September.

Our Royal Gorilla is one of the strongest strains available from Royal Queen Seeds. We have managed to bring this powerful cannabis strain all the way from the U.S. – the only place were it had been available until now.With an average THC level of 25% – and exceeding 30% depending on the phenotype – this incredible beast will take you soaring the skies. or have you glued to the couch!

A medicinal strain that is as glamorous as it is powerful.

The plant itself is very easy to care for and you will enjoy the tell-tale deep purple buds that develop.

Once a grower has decided on the right light system to match their setup, they will need to stick to a strict schedule. Unfortunately, light schedules are the most overlooked by new growers.
