Best Cannabis Strains For Being Creative

I am always on the lookout for the best cannabis strains for being creative. A big shout out to all you creative guys, girls, and anyone else who is looking to bring that creative streak to the fore. Here’s why the use of cannabis will get you exactly where you want to be along with 5 of the best cannabis strains for being creative:

Why Cannabis Can Give Creativity

Down the centuries people from all walks of life have turned to cannabis for inspiration and creativity. Be that professional painters, designers, actors, musicians, writers, or those ordinary folk who love to get the most from a side gig, pastime, or hobby.

Due to the complex nature of the best cannabis, not all strains are designed to get those creative juices flowing. Having said that, some strains will promote creativity to the Nth degree.

With that in mind, it is often the case for creative-minded folk to seek out strains that are rich in certain terpenes. Thanks to its uplifting effects, pinene is a point in case because it is highly effective when it comes to giving inspiration. 

However, in this respect, pinene is not alone. Examples of other highly respected terpenes within the cannabis industry include eucalyptol, d-limonene, b-myrcene, tb-ocimene, and a-bisabolol. If the truth is known, the list goes on.

The point is that these terpenes and a variety of others are known to produce positive effects. That includes such factors as an increase in concentration and energy along with their ability to elevate a person’s mood.

The straight fact for anyone who wants to be in that “get-up and do” mood is that use of the best cannabis strains for creativity can get them there.

5 of The Best Cannabis Strains For Being Creative

When it comes to a creativity boost It is widely acknowledged that sativa and sativa-dominant hybrid strains are the most effective. Hybrid strains of all types currently rule the market in terms of availability and as will be seen below, some hybrid strains really hit the creativity-inducing spot.

We will start with 2 strongly recommended pure sativa strains. It should be said that these are not always the easiest to find. However, even if you cannot find the ‘pure’ sativa version of these two classic strains, the sativa-dominant hybrid versions are still very much worthy of investment.

Acapulco Gold

No creative strain list would be complete without the iconic Acapulco Gold. It is one of the oldest, most revered, and best cannabis strains of all time. So much so that it has quite rightly earned its place on the High Times “Greatest Strains of all Time” list.

If a highly reliable source of motivation and energy is what you are after then Acapulco Gold gives that and some. Anyone who can get their hands on a 100% pure strain should not ponder on the purchase decision. But even in its hybrid form, the purchase should be a no-brainer for those who are looking to lift their mood, mind, and spirits.

Acapulco Gold is one of the best cannabis trains renowned for its golden hairs and sparkling crystals. This classic strain offers a spicy scent with hints of earthiness. Just be aware that with THC content coming in between 18%-25%, it may not suit all. However, those who can handle what can only be described as “connoisseur cannabis” will find the energizing and euphoric effects are very hard to beat.

Durban Poison

Neck and neck with Acapulco Gold, Durban Poison has the distinction of being a rare pure sativa. This 100% sativa strain from South Africa’s 2nd largest city will surely activate liveliness and create a positive mood.

Often referred to as the espresso of cannabis it actually offers a far more significant ‘jolt’ than any coffee you drink! This is the perfect smoke to get you up and running with a rush of energy that will stay with you for a long time. The lift it gives makes you ready to accomplish any task.

Although terpinolene is the dominant terpene, Durban Poison also includes humulene, linalool, b-caryophyllene, myrcene, and limonene amongst others.

Durban Poison is one of the best cannabis options that holds the promise of energizing, uplifting your feelings, and guiding you to a general increase in happiness. You can be assured it will deliver on that promise in many more ways than one.

This is a timeless classic that is highly admired for its pure, simple sativa beauty. The high potency contained is guaranteed to give you a clean high.

Super Lemon Haze

SLH or Super Lemon Haze is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that mixes Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze. SLH is a multi-colored wonder with lemony characteristics. Its smell is citrusy, zesty, and a little sweet. As for taste, the name should tell you all.

The effect of this quality bud offers a unique, energetic, and lively feel. One that is geared to bring your creativity to the fore. Its sparkling effects will keep you buzzing all day long.

Just a word of warning for those who are naturally wound up tight. SLH has a 19% THC content so it may not be the best cannabis for you.

Bubble Gum

This is one sweet Sativa-dominant hybrid. Those looking to spark creativity and curiosity will get there with just a few tokes. It is an excellent combination of a South African Power Plant coupled with a Brazilian Santa Maria. The perfect combination to get that creative inspiration going and keep it there.

Consisting of 40% indica and 60% sativa, Bubble Gum is ideal for anyone looking to combine CBD levels (3%) with 19% THC. That combo sweetens the deal while taking a slight, but noticeable edge off too much psychoactivity. Chew on this baby and long creativity sessions will be yours.

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel owes its origination to California where growers know a thing or two about creative needs. Packed with almost 90% sativa it is easy to see why this wicked weed strain is the choice of so many celebrities.

Also known as Sour D and Sour Deez it comes with a distinctive aroma and is regarded as one of the best cannabis strains. Caryophyllene is the most abundant terpene but you will also benefit from myrcene and limonene.

Sour Diesel first became popular around the early 1990s and has remained a legendary smoke ever since. Effects are not only fast-acting, they are energizing, dreamy, and cerebral.

Give it a go, surely so many celebrity users cannot be wrong!

Unlock That Creativity!

For many of us, the best cannabis is the key that unlocks the brain. It can encourage divergent and nonlinear thinking. The result of using appropriate strains will leave you bursting with energy, keen to get things done and benefit from increased concentration to boot.

The positive news is that there are so many sativa-dominant strains out there to suit inspired thinking and creativity. Some will meet your needs better than others. That means experimentation should be the name of the game.
