Walk into any pharmacy and you’ll encounter hundreds of medications for ailments of all kinds. If you’re suffering from a cough, you know to look for a cough syrup. You wouldn’t expect foot powder to do the job.

The same can be said when it comes to selecting cannabis to relieve medical symptoms associated with conditions such as arthritis, Crohn’s disease, or fibromyalgia. You can’t necessarily expect a product developed to help with one condition to automatically help with another. Cannabis is like most everything else — one size doesn’t fit all.

Cannabis products are derived from the cannabis plant, but there are three different species and potentially thousands of different strains. The three cannabis species have distinct characteristics, producing different effects when consumed. Even within a species, varieties grown in different climates will have different chemical compositions and characteristics. Hybrid plants further complicate matters.

Thus, CBD oil, cannabis flowers, or other medical cannabis products could bring relief, but if they don’t contain the right mix of cannabinoids, in the right proportion, for your condition, these products may or may not be effective.

Most of us want to make smart purchases. We want to buy products that work. Just as you would look for cough products to treat a cough, you’ll want to learn about the most effective cannabis strains to treat your health conditions. With thousands of varieties out there, this could easily become overwhelming.

Fortunately, Tikun Olam makes it easy to find relief with just six proprietary strains. These exclusively cultivated heirloom strains have varying indica to sativa ratios. Some strains are high THC, low CBD while others are high CBD, low THC. As such, they treat different conditions and produce different results. In addition, each Tikun Olam cannabis strain is available in different forms including flowers, oils, topicals, vape, tinctures, and more.

Tikun Olam takes the guesswork out of selecting the right medical cannabis strain for your condition. Learn more at Tikun Olam California.
