Yo, what’s up? My name is Dan and I’m here to talk about dystonia muscle spasms. It’s a movement disorder that makes your muscles contract involuntarily, causing you to twist and contort in weird ways. It’s a pretty gnarly condition that affects a lot of people in North America. But here’s the thing – medical marijuana can actually help reduce pain and other symptoms of chronic diseases like dystonia. And I’m not just blowing smoke – there are some seriously dank strains out there that can make a big difference.
First off, let me break it down for you. Dystonia is caused by broken brain signals that make your muscles pull on your body inaccurately, leading to spasms and repetitive movements. There are different types of dystonia, including idiopathic, genetic, acquired, and cervical. Possible causes include lead and carbon monoxide poisoning, physical injury, infections, stroke, and even pharmaceutical drugs like neuroleptics.
The effects of dystonia can be pretty rough – physical inabilities that affect how you perform everyday activities, difficulty with speech and swallowing, utilitarian blindness affecting your eyelids, fatigue and pain due to repetitive muscle contractions, tension, depression and social withdrawal.
But there’s good news – medical marijuana can help manage the symptoms of dystonia, including muscle spasms and neuropathic pain. THC and CBD are essential components in medical marijuana that can help reduce pain and cause your muscles to relax. Studies have shown that CBD alone helps diminish muscle spasms associated with dystonia, but combining it with THC can be even more effective.
So what are the best strains for treating dystonia? Well, there are some seriously dank options out there. Here are my top 10 picks:
1. Afghan – this landrace strain is perfect for patients looking for a relaxing high that can also treat muscle spasms and dull pain.
2. Northern Lights – this pure Indica strain is perfect for patients looking to sleep while treating dystonia muscle spasms.
3. Sour Diesel – this Sativa-dominant hybrid is one of the strongest strains out there, perfect for patients looking for a burst of energy and relief from stress and depression.
4. Maui Wowie – this tropical-flavored Sativa weed is great for stress relief and treating muscle spasms, with low CBD and up to 20% THC.
5. Granddaddy Purple – this famous Indica weed is perfect for nighttime use, with berry and grape smoke that can help with muscle issues.
6. Blue Dream – this Sativa-strong hybrid is perfect for daytime use, with a genuine high that induces full-body relaxation.
7. Green Crack – this mainstream Sativa strain produces a powerful upbeat combined with a sense of relaxation, perfect for treating stress and fatigue without side effects.
8. Super Lemon Haze from – this Sativa strain introduces relaxation without laziness, with a distinct lemon flavor that can also help with muscle-related treatment.
9. Black Widow – this Indica-dominant strain provides a state of relaxation that makes you want to do your stuff easily and slowly, reducing symptoms of dystonia.
10. Trainwreck – this social smoke can make you feel energetic and talkative at first, but can also induce body high if taken in high doses, providing relief for symptoms associated with dystonia.
So there you have it – medical marijuana can be a game-changer for patients with dystonia muscle spasms. Just remember to consult with your doctor to obtain correct information on the disease, essential cannabinoids that can help, the balance of THC and CBD, and information on the proper dose and medical use for your therapy. Stay lit, my friends.
