Top 10 Marijuana Strains with User Ratings and Medical Benefits

Cannabis or Marijuana is now legal in various US States. It has become legal for both medical and non-medical use in four states Washington DC, Oregon, Alaska, and Colorado. However, there are still countries and states that do not embrace any legal use of marijuana.

But with the growing importance of the medical cannabis, caregivers have become selective about the strains. They are cultivating & researching to prepare the best weed to help patients fight pains and get relief from chronic suffering.
