SamToernst reviews CanniMed's 4-10:

I have been using the 9-9, 4-10 and 1-13 for back pain for several months now and the 4-10 was up there with the 9-9 in my opinion.

I find it's a little less 'high' than the 9-9, and because of this less long-lasting, so I end up using more of it at once than with the 9-9, but this was still more effective for me than the 1-13. I will say that I am beginning to appreciate the more subtle effects of the 1-13 also. CBD seems so subtle compared to THC.

Aladreith reviews Tilray's Rene Mist:

My very first strain. Needed to have someone show me how to grind the weed and use the vapourizer. He said the stickiness of the buds was good, for whatever that's worth.

The smoke from this strain has a light flavour, a mix of earthy and flowery that is not unpleasant. It's not too hard on my throat, though I do get a bit of a tickle from time to time. I have also tried infusing cream with the previously vaped stuff. The effects didn't really change for me when I ate it; they just had a slower onset and longer duration.

At the levels I can tolerate, this strain relieves my pain roughly 10%. It does not help my nausea, and can even make that worse, if I take too much. At low levels, it makes me feel a bit jittery, happy, and talkative. With larger doses, I additionally get tingly, hungry, and dizzy. Too much, and I get intensely dizzy and very nauseated. My mouth and eyes get a bit dry from this, as well - the more I have, the drier they feel.

Because of the jitteriness, I doubt this would be a good strain for people seeking stress relief, but that's pure speculation.
