That cannabis can help with fatigue by boosting your energy levels is widely known amongst cannabis users. Although there are no scientific studies on this subject at this time, a growing body of anecdotal evidence suggests that cannabis can provide a temporary boost in energy and feelings of wellbeing. Especially sativa phenotypes seem to have this effect, due to their predominantly high levels of THC and low CBD content.

It is believed that the THC molecule acts in the same way as the endocannabinoid Anandamide. This naturally occurring chemical compound is responsible for a euphoric and energized feeling after vigorous exercise and commonly referred to as a “runner’s high”

We’ve all felt fatigued and low on energy at some point in our lives, but unfortunately, some people are far more affected by the condition than others.

Unfortunately, it can be challenging to identify the cause of fatigue as several issues can cause the condition. – Anaemia, thyroid disorders, fibromyalgia or a simple lack of sleep. Once someone experiences feelings of extreme fatigue for over six months, it is then classified as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). However, some people will experience the condition for many years at a time.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, is the most pronounced form of fatigue. Sufferers feel constantly exhausted, and no amount of rest or sleep seems to improve the condition. In fact, physical and mental activity can make the situation worse. 

While experts are still unsure as to the exact causes of CFS, theories suggest it is due to abnormalities in the central nervous system, brain function, immune system deficiencies or hormonal imbalances due to irregular glandular processes. Mental ailments, such as depression and anxiety, are some of the significant contributors to CFS. CFS sufferers often also report symptoms such as joint pain and inflammation.

Frustratingly, there is no standard treatment for fatigue due to the mystery of its source. However, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence suggesting medical cannabis can help to fight fatigue. 

The Science Behind Treating Fatigue With Medical Cannabis

Medical cannabis contains hundreds of cannabinoids and terpenes that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). Cannabinoids like Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD) bind themselves to the CB-1 and CB-2 cannabinoid receptors, stimulating the ECS. The endocannabinoid system is known to regulate many of the body’s processes, including energy levels. 

Symptoms like joint pain, inflammation, sore muscles and depression can contribute hugely to the feeling of fatigue. Due to its effect on the ECS, consumption of medical marijuana can help alleviate many of the symptoms associated with chronic fatigue, and as such is regarded as an effective treatment for fatigue. Medical cannabis can also induce much deeper relaxation and improve sleep allowing the body to recharge more during periods of rest.

Depending on the plant, cannabis affects all of us in different ways. However, sativa strains are well known for their uplifting and energetic effects. There is plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest that medical marijuana sativa strains can provide users with a much-needed uplifting effect during periods of fatigue.

Terpenes aid the function of cannabinoids – known as the ‘Entourage Effect’. As well as working in synergy with and enhancing the effects of cannabinoids, terpenes such as pinene, limonene and caryophyllene are thought to be great for boosting energy.

Indeed, research has revealed that pinene interacts with an enzyme responsible for the breakdown of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter plays a sizeable role in memory, learning, and attention.

As such, we can assume that the best strains for combatting fatigue are energetic sativas that contrain some of the terpenes pinene, limonene, terpinolene and caryophyllene.

Green Crack

It is said that this somewhat controversially named marijuana strain was coined by the rapper and famous “cannabis enthusiast” Snoop Dogg because of the strains energetic effects. 

Whether the Snoop myth is true or not, there is no question that Green Crack is an energising sativa strain that is great for boosting energy levels and encouraging productivity. 

With levels of THC averaging out at 17% and low CBD levels (under 1%), Green Crack is characterised by a sweet tropical citrus flavour and aroma that is the result of its terpenes myrcene, caryophyllene, limonene and ocimene. The presence of caryophyllene and limonene also contribute to this marvellous strains ability to combat fatigue and chronic pain.

Having the ability to boost energy and promote productivity makes Green Crack one of the best marijuana strains for fatigue. 

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is a hugely popular sativa dominant relative of the Diesel strain, commonly used to treat both mental fatigue and physical fatigue. Named after its slightly Diesel smelling aroma, the stimulating effects of this strain are hugely helpful for combatting fatigue.

This world-famous cannabis strain contains fairly high levels of THC content (16-20%) and less than 1% CBD and is said to keep users’ minds active and engaged as well as providing a boost of energy to fight fatigue. 

This famed sativadominant hybrid has tested for high amounts of terpenes alpha and beta-pinene. These terpenes give this strain an intense, pine-like aroma as well as its tantalisingly citrus, peppery flavour. Alerting and energizing, pinene is also said to increase focus and may also improve memory. Sour Diesel`s other dominant terpenes include limonene and caryophyllene which are thought to give Sour Diesel its wonderfully energetic and uplifting cerebral effects.

As daytime strains go, Sour Diesel is one of the best strains to fight fatigue.

Jack Herer

Jack Herer is a sativa dominant cannabis strain that has gained worldwide fame in recent years. Combining a Haze hybrid with a Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk cross, the iconic strain is famed for its stress-relieving and uplifting qualities that are ideal for those suffering from fatigue. 

This slightly sativa dominant hybrid can lift you from your slump into a warmer, uplifting emotion while rapidly easing those symptoms of fatigue.  Thanks to its well-blended mix of sativa and indica genetics, Jack Herer offers brilliant therapeutic potential for a wide range of conditions including fatigue, anxiety and depression.

With its terpene profile rich in myrcene, pinene and caryophyllene, this spicy, pine-scented strain with a THC content averaging around 17-20%, Jack Herer offers a mellow and mentally uplifting high. This cannabis all-star has taken home numerous awards (9 cannabis cups} and could be an ideal strain for those looking for a boost in energy. 

This energizing strain is famed for its uplifting effect and is especially favoured by day time users for both its long-lasting ability and its energy inducing potential.
