Strain Hunters Morocco Expedition by Green House Seed Co
Sep 29, 2011 >>
The large majority of the hashish produced worldwide (up to 70% of the
total annual world production) comes from a relatively small mountain
region in the North of Morocco, called Rif. In Dutch coffeeshops the
sales of Moroccan hashish are one of the backbones of the industry,
already since the 1970s. And from London to Rome to Madrid to Cape
Town, Moroccan hashish is consumed daily by huge numbers of people.
Moroccan hashish was first produced after Asian and Arab merchants
introduced the cannabis plant to the region, between 1000 and 1200
years ago. But it wasn’t until recently (1960s) that hashish
production reached export-levels, becoming the number one commercial
output in the region of the Rif, and representing a significant
proportion of Morocco’s GDP (unofficial sources estimate it at roughly
There are social and historical reasons to this: the Berbers,
inhabitants of the Rif, always maintained their independence from the
Arab dynasties ruling the Country. But they were crucial in fighting
European colonial powers for the formation of modern Morocco. In
exchange for the help offered fighting French and Spanish troops, king
Mohammed V granted the Berbers freedom to administer their land.
freedom allowed them to rapidly convert the local agricultural
production (olives, figs) into cannabis production, and to produce
hashish. To this day, the document granting the Berbers freedom over
the Rif region is exposed in the National Museum in Marrakech.

I have found that less is better too much especially if I smoke it will result in me being too "clouded" to get things down also I end up having a "couch-lock" thing. Im thinking this is from mainly indicas. I have read and heard sativas may be better and I think that I may have had some good success with sativas. My friend has some medical strains he is willing to let me try.
He has some purple urkle, blueburry kush, sour diesel, and snow cap. I know what the markings on the bags say...but the information I find on the internet points some of the strains that were marked sativa as indica or even a hybrid.
sour diesel is a sativa. stimulant type of buzz.
I am not a doctor so I cant recomend of course ...
but do stimulant based drugs help you such as ritalin or adderal ?? If they do... then do stimulant style sativas help?
thanks all yes it has been my experience that sativa strains have helped like ritelin except Im not a pill popping zombie....my fave is sour diesel and frosty

I am a middle age male, adhd (inhereted from father side), I have anxiety and sometimes depression.
I get high with a couple of hits, I do not like to smoke a lot because it gets me stupid and I do not enjoy that state of mind. Getting a couple of medium hits gets me on a very connected with my body and feelings state and I experience a much more fluid conversations, its like the weed connects some gears in my brain to make everything more connected.
I want to know about other persons who can identify themselves with the symptoms I described and if you are using a particular strain to aid yourself.
From a quick search on the web I selected "Jack Herer" to put on my wish list to purchase some seeds as it was listed as aid for ADHD and Derp/Anxt.
Please talk about your experiences.
I've done a lot of smoking around to find what works best for my ADHD and anxiety. For ADHD, I have had success with low-THC sativas. They keep me functional and focused. You may want to check out "Green Spirit."
For serious stress/anxiety, I'd go for a heavy-hitting high-CBD strain, maybe something like White Rhino. But, don't expect to get much done!

Strain Name: Bubba Kush,
Type: Indica dominant hybrid,
Looks: Medium green buds with orange and amber hairs. Good crystallization. Medium density.
Smell: Sweet with a perfume-like hint.
Taste: A tangy, light smoke with a bit of an edge. Slightly sweet.
Effects: Good head buzz with moderate body effects but not very long lasting. Seems a little mild compared to other kush strains. Not a sleepy medicine, but not overly euphoric or energetic, either. Good for daytime use, although patients with high tolerances may require larger dosages.
Potency: Medium High
Reviewed by: brokensun
Good Strain For: ADD. Depression. Minor pain relief.
Strain Name: Purple Haze,
Type: Sativa dominant hybrid.
Looks: Pale, light green buds that sparkle. An abundance of orange hairs. Compact and very dense nuggets. There’s not much purple, but this medicine wasn’t exposed to cooler temperatures.
Smell: Slightly sour fruit…a little bit like sweet red grapefruit.
Taste: Expansive and tangy. Sativa smooth. Tickles in the nose and tangy on the exhale. More of a “purple” taste than smell.
Effects: Quick and long-lasting head buzz. Uplifting – lots of energy and good vibes with a little bit of an increase in heart rate, but no jittery feeling. Slightly psychedelic effect. Put on some good music and clean the house.
Reviewed by: brokensun
Good Strain For: Depression. ADD. House cleaning.
Strain Name: Shiva X,
Genetics: Shiva crossed with an unknown sativa,
Type: Indica dominant hybrid,
Looks: Big, slightly lumpy, light green buds. Loads of orange hairs and trichomes.
Smell: Strong, clean fruit smell. The slightest hint of pine and spice.
Taste: Very mild smoke in the throat and lungs, with a slightly spicy taste and heavy tingles in the nose that lasted for some time after exhaling.
Effects: Fast-acting and strong medicine. First, a big head rush with strong euphoric sensations and a distinct increase in heart-rate that some users may find uncomfortable. This is the “kick” that initially caused the growers to want to call this strain “Chuck Norris.” But someone got a little paranoid (an understandable side-effect) and was afraid of being sued by Chuck’s lawyer’s, or of getting their ass kicked by Chuck, or something like that, so it doesn’t really have a name.
Anyhow, it’s excellent medicine that will leave even high-tolerance patients energetic and up for a couple of hours. It eventually mellows out into a lazy and thoughtful buzz, but never leaves you feeling drowsy – even after heavy consumption.
Potency: High potency. Not recommended for new patients or those with heart or blood pressure issues.
Reviewed by: brokensun
Good Strain For: Depression. ADD. Narcolepsy.
Notes: Shiva, the indica parent of this strain, is supposedly known for it’s pronounced drowsy effects. This medicine is the polar opposite. In fact, the only trait that seems to have been passed along from the Shiva parent is the incredible potency.
This seems rather appropriate given the dual nature of this strain’s namesake, the Hindu god Shiva, both the destroyer and the giver of life.

Marijuana Strain for Hepatitis | Cannabis Strain |
Find out what marijuana strain is best to treat hepatitis. A 2006 study found some interesting results.
Marijuana Strain for HEP B and C
One of our users asked us to write a piece on which marijuana strain would be best for hepatitis B and C. In aims to provide unique care and attention to detail we set out to investigate just that. We will also be covering best consumption methods and which phenotype will do you justice. If you know someone or you yourself suffers from HEP B and C keep on reading.
Marijuana and Hepatitis – Hepatitis is a disease that affects nearly 4 million Americans every single year and is a viral disease that effects the liver. People who suffer from Hepatitis C generally feel fatigue, joint pain, depression and cirrhosis in the liver and even liver cancer. Whether there have been no clinical trials done on humans with hepatitis there have been plenty of pathological evidence that suggests that cannabis can at least minimize the symptoms of hepatitis.
Marijuana Strain for Hepatitis – In most cases to find the right marijuana strain for your disease you need to look at the symptoms. In Hep C we know that pain is an issue, inflammation, depression, nausea and so forth (especially due to current “approved” treatment. For these symptoms indica is the recommended marijuana strain since it will help the patient deal with pain and inflammation. Doctors have found that the benefits of cannabis outweigh the potential risks in patients and deem that using cannabis to treat the symptoms of hepatitis is definitely a worthy approach.
Which specific marijuana strain do you recommend? – We believe that for Hepatitis the best strains would be heavy indicas. Something like Northern Lights or Northern Lights-Bubblegum should do the trick since it has a high THC content and a very powerful sedative.
Best Methods to consume – Specifically for this disease we recommend a combination of methods. In order to stimulate the immune system essential hemp oil should be taken orally two to three times a day. When the patient feels sudden pain he/she should vaporize and if the pain continues then making an eatable would be the best approach; brownies, cookies etc.
For Hepatitis the best marijuana strain is a heavy indica. If you don’t want to feel too sedated then a hybrid 70-30 Indica dominant should do the trick.

Diana L. Sylvestre, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, et al. stated in their October 2006 article "Cannabis Use Improves Retention and Virological Outcomes in Patients Treated for Hepatitis C," published in the European Journal of Gastroenterology & Hepatology (18(10):1057-1063):
"Our results suggest that modest cannabis use may offer symptomatic and virological benefit to some patients undergoing HCV treatment by helping them maintain adherence to the challenging medication regimen."
October 2006 Diana L. Sylvestre
Treatment for hepatitis C involves months of therapy with two powerful drugs, interferon and ribavirin, that have severe side effects, including extreme fatigue, nausea, muscle aches, loss of appetite and depression. Because of those side effects, many patients do not finish treatment and the virus ends up destroying their livers.
While it is possible that the marijuana had a specific, positive biomedical effect, it is more likely that it helped patients by reducing depression, improving appetite and offering psychological benefits that helped the patients tolerate the treatment's side effects, the team reports in the current issue of the European Journal of Gastroenterology & Hepatology."

Forum > Medical Marijuana > Medicinal Cannabis and Health > Multiple Sclerosis symptoms and strains >>
I am very new to MMJ (rookie status) and wondered how others out there are managing Multiple Sclerosis pain and spasticity. I've only found Indica (Purple Urkle) strain to be helpful for my symptoms so far. I'm curious to see what strains others are using specifically. I have really bad ribcage girdle-banding from a lesion on my spine ("MS hug") and neuropathic pain that wakes me up at night. I'm very hopeful about this, as in the past I've tried dozens of prescription drugs and they all gave me horrible side effects.
Thank you for any feedback.
I think you have to be more specific about your MS symptoms, in order to get real recommendations for strains. MS can vary SO much from person to person.
Brick weed is ok, but there are better traits to go after. Most of the folks who use MJ are after pain relief, which most indicas will do quite well, but at what cost? It seems like you have to take the stupidity with the pain relief.
I've used Baclofen, Valium, Neurontin and Zanaflex for pain, but MJ does more than any of these - and way better!
I have really, really bad spasticity (prevents me from walking even close to normal). I have found Jack Herer to be helpful in allowing me to walk better (and think at the same time!) I am able to walk without my forearm crutches for 1/2 mile when I use it. Normally, this distance would be impossible even with 2 forearm crutches.
I also use Northern Lights when I have a great deal of pain. I have terrible neck and hip joint pain (mostly from spasticity) that responds very well to the heavier indica of NL. It does make me stupider than Jack however, so I use it sparingly. Northern Lights has a fairly high CBD level, too, which is neuro-protective.
I have been using medicinal MJ for over a year, and some of my longest-lasting symptoms are starting to go away. Like curling toes (that make it hard to walk or put shoes on)that have been there for many years, are now an occasional rather than a constant problem. Also, the needle jabbing pain in my left knee is gone, and my mood is so much better (already on Wellbutrin and Effexor for many years for that, but this is great in addition to those). My balance and flexibility are much better, too, though it's hard to say if that's the yoga or the MS (or both) at work.
My word retrieval is better (especially good under the influence of Jack Herer) and I have viable, solid ideas while using Jack. Problem solving is great!
I use my High Times to do yoga (which is tremendously helpful for MS) and take a walk. I also use it to get housework done. (Cleaning is so much easier when you can SEE what you're doing and you have some coordination to work with)
I vaporize and use tinctures that I make (ETOH based) in my coffee when I travel - it's more discreet)
Best wishes to you. MS is lifelong, but growing and tending and creating solutions to your own problems that medicine can't offer, is also a lifelong pursuit. And, so worthwhile!
I have tried 4 different Indica strains, and they seem to help more than the Sativa. Being able to try this for pain has been a comfort, because I say to myself, "bring it on, MS, and I'm going to fight you now!" because now I know I have something that actually helps. I could no longer take the Neurontin, Lyrica, or Baclofen because I would wake up with a hangover, and it made me very depressed and very hungry. Vicodin made me feel awful. I was on Effexor for 2 years, and gained 25 pounds, and the withdrawals/hallucinations from that lasted almost a year.
The MJ does not make me hungry. I have tried Purple Urkle, Purple Kush, Grand Daddy Purps, and recently got Hollywood Kush (haven't tried that yet.) It boggles my mind that I have access to the spooky pills that make me feel weird and they don't really work, and the MJ is the only thing that has worked, and is so controversial, and now we are learning that it can actually slow the progression of MS somewhat.
I have since splurged and got the little Iolite vaporizer. I love it. I can medicate inside the house. Plus, it's much easier to measure how much you are taking.
Marijuana Strain | Treat MS | Medical Marijuana Strain
Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that occurs when there is damage to the nerves in the brain and the spinal cord. Medical marijuana has shown great benefits in relieving symptoms and thus we will discuss which marijuana strain is best for MS. People who have smoked marijuana to treat this horrific disease can almost return back to normality as marijuana actually helps repair damage nerve cells.
What marijuana strain works for MS? – Having asked plenty of patients with MS which strains work best for them, almost everyone claimed that a heavy indica is the best for this condition. You could definitely try any of the kushes and even Querkle is said to have phenomenal effects. If you want to not be knocked down then an Indica dominant hybrid would be the marijuana strain of choice.
How to use Medical Marijuana for MS – Obviously you can smoke it, which most people do, however vaporizing is also good if you need a quick effect. For a more intense effect it is recommended to smoke hash or consume essential hemp oils. But if you need to be out and about smoking or vaporizing might be difficult. In this case it is recommended that you make cookies, brownies or any other eatable you can take with you.
As we said the perfect marijuana strain would be primarily Indica, but if you require some mobility try Indica dominant hybrids. If you’re suffering from MS be sure to ask the dispensary or caregiver for these types of strains.
Medical Marijuana Strains multiple sclerosis - Sensible Seeds
Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is a condition that affects the central nervous system. This is comprised of the brain, the spinal cord, and a complex network of neurons that send and receive information to all parts of the body. This system is vitally important because it monitors and synchronises internal organ function by responding to changes outside the body. Nobody knows exactly what causes MS but what appears to happen is that the body has an abnormal immune activity (perhaps to a cough, cold, flu or other infection) that causes inflammation of the nerve fibres in the brain and spinal cord.
This destroys the nerves’ protective covering (known as myelin). If you think of exposed wiring, this is similar to what happens to the nerve fibres. The nerve fibres are stripped, either partially or completely, leaving scars known as lesions or plaques. Once the coating is destroyed, the patient suffers a range of symptoms.

Best MS Strains? - 420 Magazine
Forum > MEDICAL MARIJUANA > Medical Marijuana Treatment > Multiple Sclerosis > I'm sure the answer depends on what your symptoms are - my worst symptom that I'm looking to Marijuana to ease is my spasticity, which I think means Sativa - But I don't mind a little Indica worked in there too.
I'm looking to grow for myself, so I'd really like to pick strains that will have the best result for what I consume.
Any wisdom from folks would be greatly appreciated!
I believe you are on the right track with the SATIVA. YOu are going to be looking for more of a body relaxation than a mental one. Of course, a really good hybrid would be great for you so I will recommend either an 80/20, 50/50 SATIVA/INDICA blend, or a 100% SATIVA for your ailment. Check out some strains like AK-47, White Rhino, and Strawberry Cough from various seed depots on the web or local.
i thought sativas were for mental relief and indicas were for body relief?
I thought the same thing. I'm new to the MMJ thing, but I would hate to try a sativa and make the pain and spasticity that I deal with worse. A little clarification please?
Northern lights, afghani, white rhino. Look for strains high in CBD's and low in CBN's unless you want it for sleep because CBN's can make you tired. Best for ms is to make butter and food products. They last longer and you can find the right dose. I have dystonia which have similar effects.
I have been struggling with MS for fifteen years now and only recently discovered marijuana helps with muscle spasm's. I went from 2-3 hours of sleep every night for seven month's, to eight hours every night. Sativa is WRONG!!! You really need to think Indica for relief for MS symptoms.Sativa= anxiety, Indica=relaxed.
I agree that Indica is Best for pain and spasms as I have been battling MS for over 18 yearS. good strains are harlequin, Cannitonic and there is a new one that would be the answer....AC/DC, 21% CBD and less than 1% THC. This is miracle answer for A lot of health issues!
for me, Indica is the only choice. I developed anxiety from Sativa's. No logic to it, only that I cannot smoke Sativa anymore. I smoked for years and then one day started having a real problem with Sativa's. I had to quit smoking for ten years and then heard about indica not having the same effects, but still helping with spasm's. Now I take one puff at night (Afghan) about an hour before bedtime and things are very good compared to without it. Biggest relief for symptoms of MS that I have found yet ( fifteen years). A true game changer for me. ...
Okay, excuse my ignorance as well but I do have a family member with MS. I am finding numerous lists which simply highlight the strains based on popularity. However, I am looking for specifics on certain strains based on a medical condition. Any suggestions?
Well, I can speak about Afghan. It has a nice smooth, relaxed, groove. I often feel the spasms subside before I exhale. Sometimes it takes about five minutes, but it always seems to work for me. I don't seem to notice any pain relief from smoking ever. It helps me get to sleep at night and it helps with appetite also. I would also like to hear about other strains that could work for me with MS.
A friend of mine with MS has been using oil made from unknown strains up to now, but we are going to be using Silver Surfer Haze (mostly Sativa) for work hours and Kosher Kush (mostly Indica) for evening. Should be making the oil in a couple weeks or slightly less, I'll report back with our findings.

Hello everyone. I was talking to my mom today and we were wondering what would be the best strain for her MS. I want something that is going to let her enjoy life more with less stress with energetic feel. She can not walk anymore so during the days things can get difficult and frustrating and she needs bud. Can anyone help me with this?
There are lots of different symptom goes with Ms, but if its just something to take away the stresses of life in the livliest way would be a sativa.
Thanks algie but how about one for spasms that are involved with ms?
Ok cool thanks a lot algie. Imma try Kali mist and maybe some 501st OG. Lets see
Do some more research. If I remember right, MS is one of those diseases that responds very well to CBD. So a high-CBD strain may be the best place to start.
hi a cbd strain would be best cbd skunk/haze is 5% cbd and 5%thc so gives a nice balance without making you realy stoned and is a nice easy plant to grow i have friends who use for ms and cbd seems to be the key more so than thc for sure,good luck and keep us posted,peace
I was planning on getting the cannatonic or deseltonic. I hear they both have great CBD levels the thing is my mom wants to get stoned as well lolWell cannatonic should do that, it looks to be about 6-7% in both THC and CBD. That is plenty for new smokers.
Dieseltonic is a bit uncertain. The seed bank writeup says only half the plants are going to have high CBD content. So unless you are going to send your plant for lab testing, you won't really know what you are getting.
Which strain best for MS? - posted in Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications
In short, my mum suffers from MS and today she agreed with me to try cannabis for her condition.
I'm unsure as to whether Indica and Sativa will work the same way though. Most of the stuff round here is indica (because of high yields obvio the drug dealers prefer it) and I think sativa is better for medicinal purposes, given the type of high.
I don't want to get indica and have it not work and then she'd lose all faith in the idea.
Do they both work the same on a MS sufferer?
NB. Drug dealers around here are complete idiots. I asked one for a good sativa once and I got the most confused expression... you'd think people would know the product they're selling.
Mind you, cannabis sells itself I suppose...
If you love your mother you'll find her the dankest 100% indica around!
Indica is the more physically medicinal cannabinoid, offering great pain relief depending on the quality of the herb and how it was flowered!
Hon, unfortunately, medical science has NOT caught up with potheads yet! Scientists use "cannabis" in their studies- no strains are named in 99.9% of the studies! They have yet to realize the difference between indica and sativa. It will have to be trial and error for your mom.
The good news is that the effect of cannabis on MS is well documented (click the link in my sig and scroll down to "MS"- there's a whole mess of studies). I found the one on tea to be very interesting- "Cuppa Gives A Better 'ooh'". THC isn't water soluble, but tea still gives some relief! So other chemicals in cannabis besides THC can give relief from MS. "Cannabis May Halt Progression Of Multiple Sclerosis" is even more interesting! My friend Emma grew her own "Northern Lights" for her MS and was happy with it.
Granny's advice- get Mom whatever you can for now; brew up the stems and a pinch of bud for tea. Tell her that there is a difference in strains, so there may be variation in how well a strain works! Get a vaporizer (Vapor Brothers are nice). Grow your own organically, if possible. And show Mom's doctors "Granny Storm Crow's list"!

Question by Brent : Which cannabis/marijuana strains are best for anxiety? >
First I want to say that I am a California resident with my medical cannabis card, so it is legal for me to use cannabis. Also, please don’t tell me it’s bad for me; I will just ignore you as you are incorrect and not my doctor. Anyways, I have had anxiety issues for years now as well as panic attacks (though the panic attacks have significantly reduced). I was wondering if anyone has any experience with particular strains that help them with anxiety.
Most likely (though I am open to hear any suggestions), a strain with high CBD levels will be best.
There are different strains of marijuana that will help with different types of medical conditions. Strains of marijuana used to help medical conditions are known as medicinal marijuana. A few of the extra chemical components found in marijuana are: cannabinol (CBN), cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabitriol (CBT), delta-8-THC, cannabicyclol (CBL), and cannabavarin (THCU).
Plants with high CBD levels are known to induce sleep when used medically. THC levels are normally higher in most Cannabis sativa plants as compared to CBD levels. The Indica plants are best used for pain relief.
My Top 5 Marijuana Strains High In CBD Cannabinoids
| As the scientific data continues to pile up, indicating marijuana’s “unknown soldier,” the CBD cannabinoid is a game changer in the healthcare world. The long forgotten non-psychoactive cannabinoid is slowly beginning to get the acknowledgement and credit it deserves. Helping many chronically ill people around the world, finding relief from one of nature’s most powerful plants.
Weed with a higher proportion of CBD cannabinoids to THC, tends to have a greater medicinal effect, minus the sometimes unwanted [though not in my case] sensation of being “high.”

Sensi Seeds' recommended medicinal strains |
Medicinal Cannabis Indica strains have high proportions of both CBD and THC. Cannabidiol (CBD) creates a more sedative, 'stoned' feeling centred in the body, which helps patients relax as muscle tension is reduced. Indicas are most effective in treating muscle spasms and tremors (including those caused by multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease), chronic pain, arthritic and rheumatic stiffness and inflammation, insomnia, anxiety and related conditions.
Medicinal Cannabis Sativa varieties tend to be high in THC, with a lower proportion of CBD, giving them a more energetic 'high' effect which is experienced in the mind and body. These medicinal strains are most effective for the treatment of nausea (resulting from chemotherapy or HIV/AIDS medications, for example), appetite stimulation, migraine headaches, depression, chronic pain and similar symptoms.
