The Top Cannabis Strains That Help Relieve Nausea

The more we study cannabis, the more we learn how useful it is for a wide variety of medical conditions. Some use cannabis for pain management, while others use it to combat anxiety or depression. Some find it helpful in reducing epileptic seizures, and others use it to help stimulate their appetite. Cannabis is extremely versatile, and people with a wide spectrum of illnesses, disabilities, and health conditions have found it very helpful in achieving a better quality of life. One of the reasons cannabis is so versatile is that there are many different strains that cause many different effects. While newcomers to cannabis use may think of the plant as a monolith, the truth is that different strains of the cannabis plant can help you achieve vastly different results. If you’re using cannabis for medicinal purposes, it’s a good idea to do your research or consult with someone in the know to find a strain that’s going to best suit your needs. And even recreational users would be well served by reading up on what’s available and choosing a strain that’s going to deliver the experience they want to have. Here are some cannabis strains that work well for combatting nausea.

Blueberry Diesel

Blueberry Diesel is an indica-dominant strain made by crossing two other strains—Blueberry and Sour Diesel. It’s known for its relaxing qualities, making it a perfect choice for those looking to let go of a little tension. That same tension relief is what makes it so perfect for both appetite stimulation and nausea abatement.


Lavender just sounds chill, and that’s because it is. Named for its lavender scent, it provides a powerful body high, making it the perfect tool to relieve anxiety and nausea. Be mindful before you use Lavender that it has a very high THC level—about 27%. It’s not the right choice if you’re looking to get a lot done, but if you’re ready to lose yourself in restful sleep, Lavender will send you on your way.

White Fire OG #2

For a different experience from what Lavender can provide, check out White Fire OG #2. It’s a hybrid, but in this strain sativa is dominant, so it’ll let you go about your day without getting worn out or slowed down. The blend of The White and Fire OG Kush is a great choice for those who need help with nausea earlier in the day, or who prefer sativa experiences generally.


Headband is named for a common feeling of pressure on the forehead that users report after taking a few hits. But that’s not the only thing you’ll feel. Choose Headband for nighttime use or use during the day at home—it’s got a cerebral, trippy effect that can leave users feeling spaced out. This is a good one if your nausea is caused by migraines, and it’s also great for those who enjoy vegging out in front of the TV after a smoke.

Grand Daddy Grape

Also known as Grand Daddy Purple, this strain is a real heavy hitter that’ll leave you with feelings of euphoria and a relaxing body high. This strain is often used by and recommended for chemotherapy patients because it’s been shown to help with not just nausea, but depression as well.

If you’re in consultation with a medical professional about cannabis for nausea, be sure to ask them for their recommendations as well. And if you have a favorite strain for nausea that we didn’t mention here, please let us know in the comments. We’d love to know what else is working for you!
