What are the best sativa strains for creativity?
Weed can open your mind to new ideas, or expand an already fully formed concept. It’s a beautiful experience. Cannabis is one of the most popular substances people use to open those doors, and it works wonders.
However, not all strains of bud can help with creativity. Many actively don’t help at all. So, if you want a more creative experience, pure sativas or sativa-dominant hybrids are the way to go. Since sativas are usually more euphoric and uplifting than indica’s, you’ll have the ability to dive deeper into what you’re working on.
How do you tell which weed will help you be creative?
Everyone reacts differently to different strains, so it’s important to listen to what your body tells you.
Ultimately, what helps you get into a creative headspace is the perfect creative strain for you. You want a strain with the right amount of THC that will leave you feeling productive and happy. Higher THC percentage is a huge plus for creativity, as it is the chemical responsible for altering your headspace. If you overdo it though, there’s a chance you could wake up with a THC hangover (the dreaded kush coma). We want colors, breakthroughs, and confidence – not grogginess.
