Are you considering using marijuana as a form of medicine and unsure of what you should use ? If this is the case, it can be hard to choose the correct strain that will fit your needs the best. You’re probably asking yourself that question ‘which strain will best serve my needs ?’ There are two main parts to the marijuana plant. These are what are known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Each of these have different effects on the individual. From what you hear in the media, it is said that the high CBD marijuana strains assist better with medical conditions than THC. This is not always the case since there have been reports of many positive effects of the THC. One of these strains which is usually seen as being good for recreational purposes, but can have its place in treating medical conditions is called Tahoe Hydro. Here we’ll cover where it comes from, how it’s used, and what it can be used for. Ready to learn more ? Let’s get started.
This strain comes from a company known as Tahoe Hydroponics which is located in Nevada. The chemical makeup of The Tahoe Hydro OG strain is dominantly THC with a lower level of CBD. Although it’s not totally certain the exact strains which make up this hybrid strain, it’s thought to be a combination of the strains Tahoe OG and OG # 18. These are both strains that are hybrid and have a higher THC level. For most individuals using a strain like this high in THC, the main reason is for recreational purposes. Although it is thought that only strains high in CBD can assist with medical conditions, the THC in many strains may help as well. So what are some uses for this strain ?
Although it is thought to be more for recreational use, this strain has also been reported by individuals that used it as helping with things such as seizures, depression, anxiety, appetite loss, nausea, insomnia, and pain relief. Since this strain has a much higher level of THC, it normally is used only for recreational purposes. The THC found in many marijuana strains though is thought to assist in the previous conditions mentioned, as well as things such as chronic physical pain. This is probably due to the effects of THC decreasing one’s level of awareness or focus, allowing the individual to supposedly experience being in another time and/or place. The level of THC in different strains will determine the level of effects that are seen, with the strains higher in THC beginning on much stronger effects. Since stress may be a trigger for many individuals with the previously mentioned conditions, the level of relaxation that this strain brings could explain why it is of such assistance. For the individual with seizures, whether it is actually epileptic and of a chemical imbalance, or what is known as a non epileptic event, the relaxation felt and stress relief could also possibly be of assistance for either condition. More research should be done to scientifically show how this exactly works, since these effects are based on testimony of others which have experience in using the strain.
Who should use it ?
As previously mentioned, this strain has a much higher level of THC than many other strains. This brings with it many strong effects which can leave many with an experience that is out-of-body, or even unconscious for a short period, what is known as “stoned”. For this reason, only those that are experienced in using strains high in THC should use this strain. Even if you are experienced in using higher level THC strains, you still want to be cautious. This is because of the level of the effects, as well as the short time that it takes for the effects of start. It is not recommended for any inexperienced individual to use this strain, but only those that know how THC effects them. These individuals may still want to start out with a lower volume of use until they know the exact effects that it has. The more experience in using higher THC strains, the less extreme the effects may be. So what are some effects that this strain has ?
What effects does it have ?

This is also what is known as “hazed” or “stoned”. Although known only through testimonials, some individuals may experience an actual loss of consciousness for a short period if the effects are too strong. Because of this, the individual should be somewhere where they can lay or sit down and relax until the effects of this strain wear off.

Because of these effects, the strain should be used only at certain times.
