Fire Friday: The Best Medicinal Strains Israel Has to Offer

Israel has a highly developed medicinal cannabis scene, and its eight licensed providers supply their patients with dozens of different strains painstakingly bred to deliver specific cannabinoid ratios. Here’s a quick look at the finest strains offered by three of Israel’s most prominent medicinal providers – Tikun Olam, Seach and Teva Adir.

Alaska – Tikun Olam

This frosty, sativa-dominant strain from Israel’s foremost medicinal cannabis provider, Tikun Olam, is very high in THC (25-29 percent) with 1 percent CBD and 0.9 percent CBN. Alaska is used to treat patients with cancer, chronic pain, nausea, appetite loss, Crohn’s, colitis and multiple sclerosis.

Avidekel – Tikun Olam

At the other end of the spectrum, this world-renowned strain is exceptionally high in CBD (14-16.3 percent) and low in THC (1 percent). It also contains up to 1.1 percent CBC. It is used to treat patients with cancer, epilepsy, inflammatory pain, PTSD, arthritis, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s and colitis.

Royal Medic – Teva Adir

Teva Adir is another highly-respected provider, who are busy developing strains that thrive in Israel’s unique climate. A hybrid of two Spanish strains, Critical and Juanita, the Royal Medic contains equivalent concentrations of THC and CBD, and has broad anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety applications. Royal Medic has an aroma of hashish and a fruity, spicy flavor.

Desert Queen – Teva Adir

The Desert Queen is a cross between Cinderella 99 and G13, and produces huge, crystal-coated buds with a fine, fruity aroma and flavor. The Desert Queen is a good “daytime strain” which is used to treat chronic pain, stress and anxiety, and is recommended for “relaxation without heaviness or fatigue.”

Argvana Heart – Seach

Seach Ltd is a prominent medicinal cannabis provider, and their “Little Book of Strains” boasts a dozen unique, proprietary entries – mostly named from the ancient Aramaic language spoken in Israel 2000 years ago. Argvana Heart is a strain with approximately equal quantities of CBD (9 percent) and THC (8 percent), and is used to treat inflammation, anorexia, chronic pain, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s. Argvana Heart (which means Purple Heart) has a honey-grapefruit aroma and a tendency to produce purple leaves and buds.

Tachllta Till – Seach

This sativa-dominant cross of Skunk #1 and Sharksbreath is extremely potent at 28.5 percent THC, and produces silvery, crystal-coated nugs of impressive size and density. The flavor is reminiscent of exotic fruits and Earl Grey tea, and the aroma is of lavender and herbs. Tachllta Till (which means “blue rocket” in Hebrew) is used to treat patients suffering from depression, chronic pain, PTSD, digestive disorders and anxiety, and is one of Seach’s most popular strains.
