Certain strains are shown to be more effective than others in treating PCOS

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) affects one out of every 15 people. The reproductive disorder can affect hormonal balance, fertility and metabolism and can also result in emotional side effects due to hormonal imbalances. It has also been associated with hair loss and acne and can cause anxiety and depression. However, there is natural relief available through cannabis and certain strains are proving to be more effective than others.

Cannabis is less toxic and less habit-forming than lab chemical-based medications and over-the-counter NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). One of the most effective strains for treating PCOS is Sunset Sherbert, which is a hybrid that can help to counter stress, loss of appetite, depression, pain and even insomnia while not creating any negative side effects.

Another strain is “Mr. Nice,” an indica-dominant cross between G-13 and Hash Plant. It has a slightly fruity flavor but is strong and use needs to be moderated to find the right dosage.

A strain that has been shown to contain as much as 15% CBD is Remedy. It is the result of a pairing between Afghan Skunk and Cannatonic and can relieve PCOS pain, as well as treat anxiety disorders.

PCOS suffers have to contend with uncontrolled muscle spasms, loss of appetite and insomnia. Granddaddy Purple is reportedly the perfect solution to these issues and can also reduce stress and pain. Its palette is said to be a mixture of berries and grapes.

The aptly named Death Star strain is the most potent and pungent of the options. It helps to reduce stress, lack of appetite and pain and is great at targeting the pain associated with PSOC.
