More and more people are taking advantage of the many benefits of medical marijuana every day. However, what many people do not know about cannabis is that each strain can offer different types that serve unique functions. Medical cannabis is used to ease symptoms of a variety of conditions. Therefore, it is critical as a patient to select the right strain for you and your needs. Here are some of the best strains to use as medicinal cannabis and their points of difference.

1. GODFATHER OG - STRONGEST/ HIGHEST THC LEVELS Godfather OG is often considered the highest THC strain, with Labs putting the strain's THC levels at 30-35%. Godfather OG is touted as the world's most potent strain. Godfather OG is an Indica-dominant hybrid and hits within minutes of the first inhale. The effects first hit with a head high and an incredibly calming body high. Because of its exceptional potency, the results of this strain can linger for 8+ hours. Godfather OG is also a 2013 Cannabis Cup Winner. Some fans report that this strain has a relatively sweet, earthy taste, which is excellent if you are not into Indica's typical pungent and sharp flavours. It is a great strain that should probably be reserved for the evening.

2. GORILLA GLUE 4 - STRONGEST STRAIN WITH BALANCED EFFECTS This legendary strain claims to be perfectly balanced with a 50/50 Indica Sativa mix. Gorilla Glue 4 will give you a burst of energy at first hit. You'll experience a soaring euphoric high with some creativity that will evolve into a very relaxed feeling. Thanks to its immense potency, Gorilla Glue 4 can induce a couch-lock effect. Gorilla Glue 4 is also a multiple-cup-winning strain, winning the 2014 Cannabis Cup and the Jamaican World Cup.

3. CHEMDAWG - STRONGEST STRAIN WITH A DIESEL AROMA Chemdawg is an OG Kush and Sour Diesel descendant. This Indica-dominant strain manages to buck the trend and be quite cerebral and uplifting with remarkably enduring effects. New cannabis users are advised to approach with caution. This strain has spicy and sweet notes along with a strong diesel aroma.

4. BRUCE BANNER – STRONGEST STRAIN FOR DAYTIME USE As the name implies, Bruce Banner will smash everything up. Roughly 60% Sativa, Bruce Banner packs a punch but is also relaxing. Don't worry, though. It won't make you feel weary. Instead, it will make you focused, creating a great daytime strain.

5. STRAWBERRY BANANA – STRONGEST STRAIN WITH A SWEET FLAVOUR Strawberry Banana sits between assertive and smooth. If you're feeling low, this strain will quickly lift you with euphoric effects. And, yes, as the name implies, it's a sweet one, so it's a perfect choice if you are a fan of candy and dessert strains.
