In reality, there are specific marijuana strains capable of boosting your energy, creativity, and productivity. However, not every strain will give you the creative boost you’re looking for. It’s often the cannabis sativa's, or sativa-dominant hybrids that are capable of truly activating your imagination beyond its normal capabilities.
There are some strains of cannabis - particularly sativas- that have quite the opposite effect. This is because each strain of cannabis contains varying and unique quantities of cannabinoids. That is why sativas provides a more uplifting and energetic feeling. Because they generally contain more cannabinoids that work to trigger dopamine production in the brain than indicas do. Here is a list of wonderful strains that can help you.
1) Super Lemon Haze
A member of the world-famous Haze family, Super Lemon Haze is an Amsterdam staple, even winning the Dam’s Cannabis Cup twice.
The original cross was bred by Amsterdam’s Greenhouse Seedbank, however, the true lineage is traced back to legendary Australian cannabis geneticist Scott Blakey, AKA Shantibaba.
The product of crossing Lemon Skunk and Shantibaba’s Super Silver Haze, the Sativa-dominant hybrid creates immense energy and euphoria, as well as stimulating creativity.
The plant contains the terpene Limonene in excess and exhibits sweet aromas of citrus that are pleasant to both the nose and the tongue.
2) Super Sour Diesel (The Common Marijuana Strain)
This is a 100% pure sativa strain that is also known as super silver sour diesel. It combines powerful sativa effects with a THC content of up to 24%. It is NOT a strain for the newbie because it hits you with an extremely powerful high that will be overwhelming if you’re not used to the experience.
One weakness is that users occasionally become easily distracted, but if you overcome this issue, Super Sour Diesel will make you feel as if you’ve drunk multiple cups of coffee without the jitters or a headache! As well as combating anxiety and stress, Super Sour Diesel is an excellent way to keep fatigue at bay so use it when you’re starting to flag several hours before you’ve completed your task.
3) Jack Herer
Jack Herer is a Sativa-dominant cannabis strain that has gained as much renown as its namesake, the marijuana activist and author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes. Combining a Haze hybrid with a Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk cross, Sensi Seeds created Jack Herer hoping to capture both the cerebral elevation associated with sativas and the heavy resin production of indicas.
Its rich genetic background gives rise to several different variations of Jack Herer, each phenotype bearing its own unique features and effects. However, consumers typically describe this 55% sativa hybrid as blissful, clear-headed, and creative.
Trainwreck is a mind-bending hybird with potent sativa effects that hit like a freight train. Mexican and Thai sativas were bred with Afghani indicas to produce this Northern California staple, passing on a sweet lemon and spicypine aroma.
Trainwreck begins its speedy hurtle through the mind with a surge of euphoria, awakening creativity and happiness. Migraines, pain, and arthritis are mowed down by Trainwreck’s high THC content, and many patients also use it for relief of anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and PTSD. Trainwreck flowers finish up in early October outdoors, while indoor gardens are ready for harvest 8 weeks into flowering.
6. Durban Poison
Durban Poison is a pure landrace sativa strain, so you can expect the traditional sativa effects. That means that the high you’ll get from this strain will give you a noticeable boost in energy and focus. Similarly, you can expect it to keep you up. In fact, the strain has been referred to as the “espresso of the cannabis world.” Feeling sleepy? Durban Poison is one of the best weed strains for increased productivity and for a little pick-me-up.
Please ignore the foolish notion that marijuana somehow kills productivity and motivation. The truth is, if you choose the right strain for the right occasion, you’ll receive an energy boost that absolutely shocks you. Not only that, but you’ll also have a clear mind that is capable of carefully analyzing your tasks and ordering them in terms of priority. The right marijuana strain not only boosts productivity, but it also helps with creativity and motivation too.
