    Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself, and yourself alone, one question...Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn't. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.

    The proper strain to help with back pain depends upon the source of that pain.
    Is your back pain muscle-related, from an old injury, or the result of a degenerative condition?
    Indicas will help with muscle pain, while certain very specific strains have anti-inflammatory properties.

    Space queen is unrelated to green queen as far as I know, but coincidentally is said to have anti-inflammatory properties.
    Nerve pain is best treated with a sativa, while muscle pain will take a nice indica.

    so a 50/50 would be ideal for my back.
    I was thinking for my next grow G-Force from the flying dutchman indica i know. so do you think i should bin that and go for more 50/50 ?

    Do you have the option of growing 2 strains, one for muscle pain and one for nerve tissue inflammation? Making a blend of dried, ground buds that suits what sounds like a combination of pain sources might be something to look into.
    I have never even heard of that strain so I can't help ya there, sorry.

    personally, trainwreck works wonders for my back pain. i noticed, that good sativas relax my lower back, relieving the tension in the muscles and most of the pain.

    i've found Aurora Indica very helpful with pain related to muslce spasms, disc problems, etc...Medicine Man is also a very great strain for pain managment with an indica pheno more suited to muscle spasms and the sativa pheno more suited to nerve damage...Shark Shock i've found to be helpful during the day when a potent indica would put u to sleep...best of luck but sometimes u got to try a bunch to find something that works...Mr. Nice Dreamtime, Sensi Indoor Mix, etc. would be a good place to start as you'll have a large variety of strains to sample and can keep the one's that suit your needs best...i recently purchased two packs of Dreamtime from Mr. Nice in order to find something special for pain management and they're very inexpensive for 16-18beans a pack-Shantibaba at mr.nice is very generous and even will respond via e-mail to questions regarding the medical qualities of his strains...check it out...www.mrnice.nl
