For many creatives, cannabis is considered a tool that helps unleash their creativity, get them into a flow state and increase their production. Whether you’re an artist, musician, or writer, cannabis can open your mind and allow new ideas to emerge.
Cannabis comes in a number of different strains. Each variety offers a unique combination of terpenes and cannabinoids that might affect creativity. Whether you’re looking for something mellow or energizing, we’ve got the ideal strain recommendation for you. Get ready to unleash your creative side with these top strains for creativity!
The relationship between cannabis and creativity is complicated. While many self-claims report cannabis gets the creative juices flowing, there is not enough scientific evidence yet to know for sure how cannabis impacts our ability to create.
Throughout the ages, many have used mind-altering substances to tap into a different mental perspective. However, minimal scientific evidence supports the claim that cannabis can be explicitly used to enhance creativity. When cannabis is consumed, the brain’s frontal lobe blood flow increases. The frontal lobe is the part of the brain responsible for creativity and problem-solving. So the increase in blood flow to the frontal lobe may increase creativity.
Cannabis comes in three strains: sativa, indica, and hybrid. Each strain contains a unique combination of compounds, meaning they can produce different side effects.
Sativa strains are known for their energizing and uplifting effects. They are typically associated with a head-high rather than a body-high, meaning they impact your mind more than your body.
Indica strains are often used as a sedative. This is because they have a more relaxing effect on the body than sativa strains and produce a general sense of calm.
Hybrid strains are a combination of sativa and indica strains. If you want to enjoy the best of both worlds, then hybrid strains are perfect for you.
