Best Marijuana Strains For Arkansas's 18 Qualifying Conditions

With the 18 current qualifying conditions for medical marijuana in Arkansas, many of these conditions are experienced with common symptoms such as pain, fatigue, and nausea to name a few. Fortunately, marijuana is known for its incredible versatility in treating a number of different medical conditions and symptoms.

Every strain of marijuana will have a slightly different effect. This is thanks to a unique mixture of compounds found within termed

phytonutrients. These include things like THC, CBD, other cannabinoids, terpenes, and more.

It may be overwhelming when walking into a dispensary and seeing the wide variety of flower available. We have created a guide that shows what strains are best for each condition and their symptoms. 

 

Note that some strain names may look different in Arkansas, as all strain names must be approved by regulators with the power to make the cultivator alter the strain name if it is "appealing to children" or uses "cultural icons."
