    Take the most indica dominant plant you love (ie pre98 bubba) and run it an extra 2-3 weeks longer than most...hard to say the exact percent of amber trichs as it will come down to personaly pref. But adding some flower time to an indica will make a more narcotic, less mental activity type buzz. Play around for yourself, but I take my stuff longer than most for this exact reason, and it works great...even on a sativa strain that has a lot of amber...but starts with a nice kush.

    There are many high CBD strains out in the world these days and they tend to do much in relieving anxiety. They are usually clone only but are fairly easy to find in California.

    If it isn't possible to find any high CBD strains then the previous post by Dr. K is good advise. Good luck

    I suffer from acute depression, which often triggers panic attacks and anxiety. I have been dealing with this for 40 years and tried lots of strains. My best solution so far is to use Jilly Bean for the depression, and when it is controlled, there aren't many panic or anxiety issues. But if panic or anxiety appears I have to use a good strong indica and a nap.

    I agree, I've pretty much tried most of them and IF you want anxiety and depression relief, Jilly Bean (TGA SUBCOOL) is at the top of my list. peace & be kind

    Have you tried eating it???? Take your trimings and get a 5 quart pot and a wooden spoon. If you use Buds/Flowers; 1 oz to 2 Lbs of salted butter( would make what is called a 10x Maximum Strength) and 4 cups of filtered water,mix your trimings ,and bring to a med boil. Add your butter and lower your temp to a simmer. Simmer it for about 8 hours. remove from heat and cover, let it stand for about 45 mins. Put some cheesecloth into a colander and set over a catch pot, start spooning your mixture in your colander. once all has been poured thru cheesecloth, put some gloves on and squeeze the hell out of it. Cover and let it sit over night in ice box. It will separate from the water. scoop all the butter out and there ya go! If you do the 10x time strength, and it calls for a cup of butter use 1/2 cup of the cannabis butter and 1/2 cup of non medical butter. Try some Chocolate peanut butter balls or carmels, small amounts at first. Eating cannabis gives ya a total diffrent high, it is a body high and last quite long. Great for Chronic Pain, Gastrointestinal Disorders and the list goes on and on. There are 3 varieties, indica,Sativa, and hiybrids, Aan indica-dominant strain commonly helps with deeper body effects and helps with many physical affictions. Sativa-dominant strains produce more of a cerebral, uplifting, calming effect. I know it sure helps my father and mother. Mom has Crohn's Disease. With the help of eating Cannabis her quality of life has improved so much. Hope I helped. Try looking up Cooking with Cannabis on amazon. Theres a book called : The Emperor Wears no Clothes, and Marijuana Cooking, Good medicine made easy. Great Books! have a Great Week!

    Bubblelicious by Nirvana - probably many other bubblegum strains. Also, Strawberry Cough, Dinafem has a good one I hear.

    I suffer from the same thing and have been self-medicating with booze for years. Once i came to my senses, i quit drinking and started growing our own. You may want to give Kali Mist a try, i hear it works well against depression. Satori from Mandala Seeds also gets good reviews in this department. Some Indicas you may enjoy are Lemon Kush (any old school Hindu Kush will do). Pleasantly potent smoke that leaves you functional with a lingering "mood-lift" that may be useful for you. Hope this helped, :peace:

    NL #5 is a great indica indeed. State of the art in every way. We grew a NL#5 x Haze #1 nearly 20 years ago from the old Canadian Seed Co. - BCSC It's Still the best smoke i've ever had to date.

    Any Indica based marijuana would be ideal for stress, such as Kush.. Sativa's tend to have more of a "mental high" and have more of a stimulating effect, therefore increasing the likelihood of anxiety.

    I have had anxiety my whole life. On top of that OCD, depression, and bouts of mania. I started medical marijuana at 15, and found that there are some definite strains to help anxiety, and some that increase it.

    Favorites for Anxiety/Depression:
    1. Dairy Queen
    2. Space Queen
    3. Power Plant (NOT OG)
    4. Kryptonite OG
    5. Bubba kush
    6. Mast kush
    7. Super Silver Haze (some cuts might make it worse)
    8. Purple Hindu Kush
    9. Fire OG - Good but spacey and heavy smokers may hit a plateau
    10. Chemdawg

    Strains I avoid:
    - Blue Dream
    - Sour D
    - Anything that is a big downer

    I am glad to see this thread because marijuana and anxiety for me has been a hard mix.
    If you do not grow the cuts you like for anxiety and have trouble finding a club or friends who maintain the same cuts regularly, you are basically experimenting with brain medication.

    Good luck.
