Obviously smoke can cause irritation on the throat and lung thus the best methods of ingestion is either through vapor or spray. We’ll dive into more consumption methods a bit further down.
  • Marijuana Strains for Asthma – For these types of conditions one needs a marijuana strain that has more impact on the body which generally indicates indica. However many patients find that smoking pure indica strains can make them feel too sedated. We do however believe that predominantly indica is what asthma patients should be using. Thus a good Indica dominant hybrid is recommended. Something along the lines of OG Kush (any of the kushes really), Pineapple Chunk and Dynamite would do quite nicely.

Above strain in terms of importance is consumption method. We suggest that you prepare a spray to take with you.

It takes roughly 3 seconds to absorb 97% of THC in the vapor and would almost immediately provide effect. Some patients can smoke but for those suffering medium to severe asthma the above mentioned method of consumption is recommended.
