Ever since they legalized medical marijuana in my state, I've been playing around to see which ones help me in different areas.
Most strains help with my muscle spasms in some way. Some more than others, obviously. I'd noticed that some strains helped my prostate before its legalization, but I didn't know what strain I was using at the time.
That is no longer an issue.
I recently tried a Sativa strain (Green Crack, I believe it was) that LIT MY PROSTATE UP like I'd drank a pot of expresso. I tried mixing it with other strains, but nothing really toned down the number it was doing on my prostate.
Then, a tiny voice in my head insisted that I try it in an edible. I was unsure of doing that since edibles tend to be stronger than vaping, but I gave it a go, and lo and behold, it didn't bother my prostate at all. Well, there was a bit of a tingle there, but nothing like the vaped version.
Eventually, I found a strain that really helped my prostate: Caramel Apple Gelato. I had to drive almost 90 miles to the one dispensary that had it, but I was going to be in the area, so I grabbed 14 grams.
Once I got back and made my tincture of it, I was pleased with the results.
The next morning, I got up and had 100mg under the tongue and put 50mg in my coffee, expecting even better results. However, after about thirty minutes, when the edible version kicked in, my prostate was slightly irritated. I was unsure of why. I'd not consumed anything that may bother it, but it was bothered nonetheless. It only lasted a few hours and went away, but after a few more tries with the edible version, I realized that even though the regular (vaped, smoked) version helps the prostate, the edible version does the exact opposite.
The versatility of this plant keeps blowing my mind the more I experiment with it.
