When it comes to choosing the right medical marijuana, several different strains are available. Each of these strains has its own characteristics and as a result, some are more effective than others when it comes to helping people with certain medical conditions. One of the most popular strains that is currently available is the Cinex strain. Cinex is essentially a cross between the Vortex strain and the Cinderella 99 strain, so anyone that is able to benefit from either one of those would likely be interested in trying the Cinex strain of medical marijuana as well.

Attributes of Cinex
There are a number of attributes related to this particular strain, as it has been widely regarded as one of the best that is currently available. It has an outstanding rating from customers that have already tried it and from a medical standpoint, it is able to relieve a number of issues. One of the most important functions of this strain involves its ability to help people experience less stress. It is also used as an effective pain reliever for those who suffer from chronic pain. This particular strain can be effectively used to combat depression and even to ease migraines and nausea.
It is also effective in treating those who are bipolar or who are suffering from conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). It is equally effective for someone who suffers from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, which can be far more severe and difficult to treat than the more generic form of ADD. Cinex also helps relieve anxiety. It is so effective because it helps people feel more at ease, even to the point of increasing happiness. While it can be used effectively as a pain reliever, it also works to help people calm down and simultaneously enhances creativity.
Additional Information
Another thing that many people like about this particular strain is the way that it smells and tastes. It has some sweet overtones, mainly citrus that are mixed with deep undertones that are far more earthy. These two things combine to create something that both smells and tastes good to most customers.

An overwhelming number of individuals that try this strain of medical marijuana find it to be exactly what they are looking for. It combines effective pain relief with an ability to help people calm down and focus while simultaneously being enjoyable and readily accessible.

If you live in a location where medicinal marijuana is legal, or if you live in Colorado, Washington or other areas of the country where smoking marijuana in general is legal, than you probably want to check out the different kinds of strains out there. Marijuana is not just a single plant and that is it. There are all sorts of different strains you can enjoy and each provides a different set of benefits. Knowing all of these features regarding the strain is important.

Flavor of Blue Mystic

With Blue Mystic, it has a heavy flavor of diesel fuel, with a mixture of ammonia and even a hint of blueberry. It also has the same flavor points as a vapor rub when you have a cold. It might remind you of a cough drop with the slight hint of blueberry in it, but the diesel and ammonia flavors are much more overwhelming.

Effects of Blue Mystic

In terms of effects, most of the effects you do feel are rather strong. Euphoric is an extremely high profile in terms of effects, followed by happy and relaxed. An uplifted feeling is there, although it is not as strong as the other tree effects. Some people also feel talkative when then use the Blue Mystic strain, although this is not found in everyone (it happens about half of the time, with the euphoric, happy and relaxed sensations occurring almost 100 percent of the time and the uplifted feeling occurring just short of 80 percent of the time).

Blue Mystic Medicinal Qualities

In terms of medical benefits, the top reason to use Blue Mystic is to help with stress. This is almost 100 percent of the medical benefit of the strain. Pain is just under it, and it can help with headaches as well. It is used for insomnia about half of the time, and it does assist with depression around a third of the time. Typically, this form of marijuana strain is used for people who are suffering from anxiety, migraines, who are bipolar, ADD or ADHD or have cancer.

Drawbacks of Blue Mystic

In terms of negative feelings, the most noticeable potential negative side effect is feeling dizzy. Due to this, it is important for someone to build up their tolerance to Blue Mystic and only hit it once when first starting off. A dry mouth happens about a third of the time, dry eyes and paranoia happens around 10 percent of the time and maybe one of of 100 people experience a headache.

papaya strain

“Papaya, Good Medicine, Good Strain.”

Getting a good medicinal strain is not hard, as long as one takes the time to do a little research on the different strains available. One such strain, and one that works well for medicinal purposes is the Papaya Strain.

Superb Flavor

What really separates this strain from others is the soft, tropical flair from this bud. Sweet with a hint of fruit, it is comparable with whiskey scented pipe smoke. It doesn’t have as harsh a throat hit as others strains but still delivers good indica. It has an almost peppery background but doesn’t overwhelm. Organic grown produces the best flavor and hydro lacks a lot of flavor and subtle hints of the tropical fruit.

Flowers in about 50-65 days and has a comparably quick grow but requires a little more attention than other strains. Papaya is also a low grow meaning no height issues. It gives a good yield with up to 450 grams. While it is soil grow, it is best indoors where the conditions can be kept stable and predictable. The best harvest period is October.

The Papaya strain is relatively easy to grow and maintain, gives a good yield and is perfect for medical use. Most people have a mental calmness with this strain but some have reported it making them energetic and productive. Typically, it does have a glazed eye effect with the potential for couch lock. Overall, it produces a wellness effect and is perfect for chronic pain, anxiety, muscle spasms and stress. For medicinal users looking for a pure and potent smoke, Papaya Strain delivers that and more.

The flavor and smell of the plant can be described as “fruity” with a touch of a medicinal smell. The taste and smell captures notes of blueberry, accounting for the fruitiness.

Being the cross of a male Dixie Crystal and Sagarmatha Seeds’ Stonehedge mother, this strain of medical marijuana is considered to be grade A in the marijuana medical industry. The sample I received as a part of my treatment was of an average density with uniform green and pale orange hairs and tall trichomes. The edges were swelled and calyxes were bubbly giving the sample a high bud to leaf ratio.

Attributes of Ingrid

When it came to density, it had the best trich head size and coverage as well. The trichomes comprised of around 10 percent amber which indicated the perfect harvest timing. However, the aroma was uninspiring and had a pungent smell to it. It was strange and unbearable at first compared to other strains that I have tried so far. The weird flavor, especially when the sample is in pre-grind state gives a far greater spike than expected. Further, grinding the sample makes it even more stronger giving it an acidic odor but unique texture. Luckily, the taste is completely different from the appearance and smell. It is herby, palatable and somewhat comparable to sandalwood flavor. And the room is left with a menthol-like fragrance after a while producing no cough or bitterness later on.

User Experience
This strain produces a nearly dizzy effect as soon as it enters the head and other organs, lowering the eyes and raising the warmth of the body. Once the initial experience subsides, the excellent relaxation sets in thereafter urging the body to stretch and yawn in the process. It makes you stay that way for a good 3 hours or even more if you are trying it for the first time.

Overall, the medicinal traits of Ingrid strain include pain relief, tension relief, relaxations, ocula relief and sleep aid as well. There are hundreds of strains that produce similar effect but this strain by far is one of the best product for a long-lasting effect. Add to that the best trich coverage and medicinal benefits of the sample. My new favorite strain produces the type of discomfort that is nowhere found in other products, and it is relaxing both physically and mentally. Just 0.3g for novice patients and the drug will put them into an inordinate state during the onset. In addition, its efficacy is the reason behind its highest score as the effect preserves its state for a complete 3 hours without depleting the energy.

The long term effects of this strain are what make it increasingly beneficial for aid in sleeping issues. It is also known to increase appetite and may have added and long term benefits for those with severe stress or anxiety issues.
