––––– WHAT TYPE OF STRAIN?
main classifications of marijuana strains
The following are the main classifications of marijuana strains. Here we break down where these strains are from and which types of conditions they are better suited to treat:
- Cannabis Sativa: Sativa cannabis plants are tall plants that grow in equatorial regions. Sativa varieties of medical marijuana are more invigorating and are meant for stimulating creativity or physical activities. For this reason, Sativa products are taken for conditions like depression or diseases that cause chronic fatigue.
- Cannabis Indica: Indica cannabis plants grow in mountainous regions and are shorter, fuller plants. Indica plants also have thicker coats of resin which develop as a form of protection. Indica varieties are taken for their relaxation health benefits. This makes Indicas a better treatment for conditions like insomnia or chronic pain as it can help to calm nerves and relieve pain.
- Cannabis Hybrids: Hybrid cannabis plants are cultivated through a combination of both Indica and Sativa plants. This results in a combination and variety of effects from both types. Hybrid plants are typically recommended when medical marijuana patients have very specific needs for symptom relief. The ability to tailor the effects is what makes hybrids recommended as the best cannabis strains for beginners with serious medical conditions.

What Is a Medical Marijuana Card and How Do You Get One?
A medical marijuana card (also known as “MMID” or “cannabis card”) is an identification card used by patients to enter medical dispensaries (or “cannabis clubs”) and purchase the plant to treat their corresponding health ailment or symptoms. It also allows for the patient to grow at home and use medical cannabis delivery services.
What Are the Benefits of a Medical Cannabis Card in Legal States?
The cards are issued by the state, but the patient must first get a signed recommendation from a licensed physician to qualify. The patient and doctor need to agree that cannabis would be an effective treatment option, and the patient’s condition must be an approved condition by the state. With the doctor’s recommendation, the patient then needs to apply through the state and pay a fee, which will also vary depending on the state. Doctors can’t simply prescribe cannabis to patients due to the plant’s federally illegal status.
The technicalities of how to get an MMID and what it provides you will vary depending on the specific state’s laws and policies. As cannabis legalization expands, the process for patients continues to evolve, especially with more states legalizing recreational (adult-use) cannabis.
