Stress Less in 2024 with These Cannabis Products and Strains

By Danyal Swan January 9, 2024

We've all been there; a day where stress and anxiety seem insurmountable. Some turn to yoga, meditation, bubble baths, or maybe even prescription medications for relief. But have you considered cannabis as a potential ally in your mental health arsenal?

In a revealing study from 2023, researchers combed through data from Strainprint™, specifically examining how different types of cannabis - indica, sativa, and CBD - tackle anxiety. This analysis was based on feedback from 184 individuals across 1,028 documented sessions of usage. Remarkably, all types of cannabis demonstrated a significant impact, slashing anxiety symptoms by around 50%. And the benefits don't stop at anxiety. Earlier research leveraging Strainprint data also highlighted a 58% decrease in stress symptoms over 3,717 sessions. And, according to Strainprint, the average efficacy of cannabis for anxiety overall is 49%, stress is 55%.

As we step into the new year, why not consider integrating cannabis into your mental health management?

We poured over the data submitted by Ü, our Patient Pioneers, to find the top-rated products and strains for a stress- and anxiety-free mindset. Each recommendation includes the product's efficacy as of January 2024, as well as a review so you can hear from fellow shoppers in their own words (note, some were edited for clarity or length)! Remember, while reviewers have found success with these products, cannabis affects everyone differently. Be sure to chat with your Cannabis Advisor about the best options for your personal use.

Cannabis Flower for Stress and Anxiety

Many cannabis enthusiasts favor flower as their go-to method for dosing, and it's easy to see why. Using the flower form is arguably the simplest approach to fully embrace the benefits of the cannabis plant, including its cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds. Take a look at patient-favorite flower strains for stress and anxiety, as tracked in Strainprint:

Cherry Punch

Cherry Punch is a favored strain that has been a staple at MÜV Dispensaries for years. A rich cross of AK-47 and Purple Punch, this hybrid is loaded with flavors of fruity berries, with unmistakable undertones of skunk and rich earth. Reviewers prefer this Sweet Supply strain for its happy, dreamy, and mellow effects, in addition to its Strainprint efficacies. According to Patient Pioneers, the strain is 61% efficacious for stress, and 60% efficacious for anxiety.

One of my go to strains. Moderate day use for keeping anxiety at bay during stressful work related problem solving without clouded thoughts. The smell and taste are an added treat. Liberal evening use is great to let go of the work day, move on to family and friends, relax.

B52 Bomber

Uplifting, euphoric, and dreamy. B52 Bomber is the potent cross of Durban Poison with Blue Dream, two tried-and-true cultivars in the cannabis world. This exceptional sativa delivers a harmonious mix of invigorating uplifting energy and soothing body relaxation. The strain's distinctive flavor profile, combining notes of anise and berry, coupled with its aromatic qualities, makes it a delight for the senses. Add to this the visually appealing frosty nugs, and it's no wonder B52 Bomber is a top pick among cannabis connoisseurs.

And, according to Strainprint data? B52 Bomber is 59% efficacious for both stress and anxiety.

It helps to relieve my stress and anxiety, relieves my arthritis pain so I can have better quality of life, has a great taste.

Punch Cookies

an exciting fusion of Purple Punch and Cookies strains that promises a journey of stimulation and euphoria. This indica-dominant hybrid envelops you in clouds of sweet, fruity aromas, leaving a lasting impression on your senses. Each experience is accentuated with short surges of energy. The dominant terpenes in Punch Cookies, caryophyllene and pinene, are skillfully blended to produce an effect that lifts your spirits while grounding you in relaxation. The flavor profile is a delightful mix of earthy tones and grape candy tartness, making it a unique and enjoyable experience for both novice and seasoned enthusiasts alike.

Punch Cookies is a standout for stress in Strainprint at 67% efficacious, with anxiety measuring up at 51% efficacious.

This is my favorite strain. I can count on it to take the tension out of my body. It's relaxing and makes me happy.

Marijuana Vapes for Stress and Anxiety


Vaping offers a potent and refined experience, derived from the concentrated essence of the flower. This process involves extracting the most beneficial components of the cannabis plant to create a smooth, inhalable oil. While vapes may not deliver the full spectrum of benefits found in the flower (the exception to this rule being live resin and live rosin), they efficiently provide the immediate impacts of cannabinoids and terpenes, which many find effective. Explore the top-rated vape strains, as reported in Strainprint:

Canna-Tsu

The Essence Canna-Tsu is balance, in vape form. An earthy citrus hybrid with a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD, this vape ideal for daytime due to its soft cerebral effects. Notes of hops and citrus sing through, reminiscent of an IPA beer without the bite, for an all-around pleasurable experience.

And, according to Strainprint? Canna-Tsu is 56% efficacious for stress.

This is a great all around strain for many ailments. For me I utilize for its mood, anxiety and pain relief properties. It is also energizing and uplifting. Cannot say enough good things about this strain. If you are looking for all-in-one-package, then Canna-Tsu can be the best option for you.

Maui Wowie

Maui Wowie brings paradise to you wherever you are. Notes of tropical fruit sing in this sativa, synergized by exotic terpenes to melt stress away and infuse energy. Many patients report a boost in energy when vaping this standout option. With an efficacy of 67% for stress and 59% for anxiety, it's not hard to see why it's a staple in many medicine cabinets in Florida.

Very relaxing, helps put stress in perspective and allows me to slow down and heal.

Cannabis Edibles for Stress and Anxiety

While edibles might have a slower onset for their effects, their benefits can last impressively long, typically around 6 to 8 hours. Consider edibles as a proactive approach to wellness, offering a comprehensive range of cannabinoids and terpenes that nourish your endocannabinoid system, helping to maintain balance before your day gets too hectic. The top options for stress and anxiety, as recorded in Strainprint, include:

Bits Elderberry 1:1 CBD/THC

Transform any day into a self-care day with Elderberry Bits, designed to foster a sense of well-being. These soft chew edibles, infused with a balanced blend of CBD and THC, offer a touch of serene relaxation, perfect for easing daily stress or elevating your self-care rituals. Whether it's accompanying your weekly face mask, enhancing a weekend TV marathon, or simply adding comfort to your cozy moments, Elderberry Bits are your go-to for a little extra tranquility.

These gummies are excellent for chilling out. No anxiety or paranoia or overthinking, just a nice relaxed feeling in both mind and body.

MÜV Sour Strawberry Peach 2:1 CBD/THC

A sour escape. MÜV Sour 2:1 CBD/THC edibles a delightful blend of sweet and fruity notes, combining the juicy, lush taste of ripe peaches with the bright, slightly tart essence of fresh strawberries. The peach flavor brings a soft, velvety, and almost creamy undertone, while the strawberry adds a vibrant and sugary touch. With 20mg CBD and 10mg THC coalesce, this edible provides deeply relaxing and soothing effects.

I love this product for after work, extra stressful days. Takes a bit for me for the edible to take full effect (generally 45 min - 1 hr ), but it works for a couple of hours...A little too "sleepy" for me for working hours but I always stock up on these for other times, they are my go-to.

MÜV Dark Chocolates

Creamy, melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Individually wrapped and segmented for customizable dosing, MÜV Dark Chocolates are the perfect treat. Crafted by cannabis confectioners and infused with 10mg THC and a dash of sea salt for pizzazz, these edibles have no cannabis taste – just pure, rich chocolate.

First time with this product and one piece worked so well! Relaxed peaceful not a care in the world. Perfect for those stressful days or a day to just relax and veg out. Will be ordering again for sure.
