MÜV Strains: More than Just Medicine
One of the most appealing features of cannabis is the array of effects it elicits. Depending on the strain consumed – and there are hundreds upon hundreds of those – medical cannabis can make you feel relaxed, content, euphoric, chatty…think of a descriptive word, and you bet cannabis can induce it.
While this is true, it’s important to note that cannabis strains effect each person differently based on body chemistry – where patient-favorite Sour Jack, a cross of Jack Herer and Sour Diesel, is sought for its uplifting effects, it puts this writer right to sleep! Not only that, but the state of mind and environment you’re in can affect the effects cannabis brings; if your anxiety is high due to an upcoming stressful day, medicating with Sour Jack the night before may increase anxiety instead of easing your mind and providing euphoria as it does on less-anxious days.
Once you find a strain that suits your medicinal needs well, it becomes more than just your medicine. Seeing the strain in your MÜV Dispensary is akin to running into a friend while out and about – you’re pleasantly surprised, the corners of your mouth unconsciously lift into a smile, and before you know it, your mood has lifted (without even medicating).
In fact, when seasoned MÜV Patients visit with their MedTenders, the discussion almost invariably moves towards sensation or feeling. They seek something uplifting, or relaxing. Something that will make them giggly, or relaxed, or a strain that will bring the same effects as a strain they already consume and enjoy.
If we keep with this strain of thought (see what I did there), of strains as the effects they induce, what would the personality of MÜV Strains look like?
We all have that friend that is a ball of energy. Nothing is out of the realm of possibility when you’re with them – a trip to the museum to stimulate your mind, a cooking class to heighten senses, or a casual walk or jog on the beach to get active. For the introverts of the world, Sour Jack is the pal that gently pushes you to come out of your shell.
You know that friend you can always count on to stay in with you on Friday nights? To skip the after-work drinks to instead order-in and rent a movie? Or, when they’re feeling adventurous, venture out into the real world to the movie theaters? Chunk Dawg is that friend you know will stay out of sight with you, and simply enjoy a relaxing evening together.
I bet you can think of a friend that is always wanting to do something. Whether it’s as simple as game night, a trip to the nearest beach, or as detailed as a full-on day trip to a new city – they are happiest when they are doing, and you are happier doing with them. While adventurous, they still make you feel unbelievably at ease, accepting you as your true self. Rainbow Trainwreck would be that friend – encouraging you to go out and explore, and putting you at ease as you do so.
And then there are the friends that are soothing to be around. That put your mind at ease, and are on speed dial for this reason. The friend that allows conversation to drift to any and every subject without judgment, and after these deep conversations, you immediately feel ready to rest. Guru is that feel-good, deep relaxation literal guru of a friend that helps you unwind and decompress.
Adding a new friend (strain) to your inner circle (medicine cabinet) is made easier with Strainprint. The cannabis journaling app allows MÜV Patients to search for MÜV Products based on effect they are seeking, or symptom they are managing. Tracking the efficacy of your MÜV Products is done in real-time by indicating your symptom level on a scale of 1-10 before a medication session begins, then assessing the symptom after effects have taken hold.
Please use MÜV Products and strains responsibly. Always remember to follow Florida state rules and regulations regarding medical cannabis consumption.
