I am not really sure about what strains are spasm specific but there is a really wonderful topical product out there called Traumeel that you can probably get at most health food stores.  It is completely homeopathic but man it works wonders for pain, bruising, sprains and strains.

Pre 98 Bubba, Bubba Kush and GDP all work pretty good for me. Some Blue Dream has high CBD's, which is what you're after. :Pyscha-Cow:

From my personal experience there are quite a few strains great for pain not sure for back pain specifically but I would suggest trying Romulan, Blue Satellite, Banana Kush.

Well, this Hindu Kush I just smoked took all of my back pain away, so there's a strain.  I've noticed indicas are really good for back pain.  If it's your lower back, try sleeping on the floor, and if you need to lose weight, lose it.  A big belly will jack up your back every time.  I remember Trainwreck to be great for back pain too, and that's a sativa.  I don't know if it's the THC, the CBD, or a combo that gives one pain relief, but yeah, some strains help more than others.

Oh yeah, try Ingrid.  Just tried it.  Best of the bunch IMO.

True true. Indicas work great for me too. Also dropping any weight you can is a VERY helpful thing. I'd recommend consulting with a physical therapist (NO personal trainers), explain your situation and goals, then let them devise a safe workout for you. Strengthen your core, lats, and neck if you can (mostly your core as it will take on your body weight instead of your ailing back). I do this stretch/mini workout every hour or so throughout the day with rubber resistance bands and one of those big blow up workout balls...even got them free from the PT.

Add your chosen medication and you've got a great plan. Good luck, peace & light - VJ

Raising this thread from the grave a little, but I wanted to talk about this pack pain management topic. I've never noticed herb actually helping with the pain unfortunately... Or I should say, I've never found a good strain yet. But what I do know is that getting couch locked and slumping down on the couch and watching TV never puts my back in a good position. So the search continues for a good strain...

I agree with this. When I broke my hip, they prescribed me tramadol and norco for the pain. But my mobility was extremely limited, even on the pills. The pills helped with pain but I still couldn't move without a cain. Then I tried smoking a bowl or two and I feel like it worked as a relaxant. It didn't remove the pain, however I was able to move around the house without the use of an old man's cain. (I was 21 when i broke my hip).

Can't remember what the strain was but hope this helps.
IMO Cannabis = Muscle relaxant not a pain killer. Although it may help you care less, lol.

Harlequin,Cannatonic. 7% CBD would be on the lower end. The Dispensary Store in Santa Ana has a Cannatonic cut right now that tested at 13.7% CBD

Aside from losing weight, stretching (but be careful with that, don't go overboard), I think Purple Erkle will be a great possibility for you.  It really numbed me up the other day, I was pretty amazed.  I've seen Harlequin, it's getting very popular and apparently it does have a very different buzz - with all that CBD so you might want to look into that.  See what people are saying about that strain in the strain section.  I have no experience with it, other than it seems to be getting higher and higher CBD rates every time I see them quoted.  It's usually top shelf, but I'm seeing it in more and more shops.
