Science’s Take on Weed and Creativity

Generally, science is still shy on the comprehensive effect of marijuana on the brain. Regardless, a paper published on NCBI has shown good promise for scientific evidence on weed and higher creativity. Increased Cerebral Blood Flow (CBF) to some regions have been associated with higher creative performance. Marijuana use may acutely influence CBF.

Do You Crave Further Assurance?

More than enough successful creators have openly admitted the role of marijuana in their career. The internet is also a huge reserve for testimonials surrounding the creative impact of marijuana.

One study even suggested that the renowned William Shakespeare may have occasionally smoked pot. It doesn’t come as a surprise. More might have been uncovered if all the legends who appeared ahead of their time were investigated.

Is there a singular weed strain that’s best for creativity?

It offers an uplifting feel that makes you want to take on the whole world with a sound and motivated mind. It also alleviates pain if you have some. That way, nothing hinders your unstoppable force.

Kali Mist

Kali Mist shrouds you in a mist of bliss and ease. It’s sativa dominant with a THC level of about 15%.

Ideally use before yoga or early morning meditation for smooth transition. It also deals with eating disorders. Kali Mist is perfect for microdosing.

Green Crack

A story has it that this strain was named by the legendary Snoop Dogg. The name came as a result of the explosive brain activity that resulted in acute sharpness of the mind. The feeling is also accompanied by happy thoughts and abundant flow of energy. Hence the name “Green (as in healthy/good) Crack”. It transmits the positive feeling derived from crack (cocaine) without the negative impacts.


The initial overwhelming effect of Chemdog sets it apart from the rest. The effects come at full speed and turbo charged. It’s best when you want to establish a line between strong euphoria and coordination. Sometimes, creativity needs a little push to the edge to cross into a new territory of thoughts.

Amnesia Haze

Most strains in the haze family act contrary to their names. You imagine them to be a hallucinogen pump for illusions and they just disappoint (in a beneficial way). The strain helps drive focus by making you worry less and thirsting to create.


Just as the name suggests, this strain gets you fired up like high velocity sapiential rounds. With a THC content of about 20%, the effects start with a quick soft jolt in the head. After the initial strong push of motivation, it subsequently relaxes you. This enables you to calmly finish what you were motivated to start.

Purple Haze

Like in the movie “The Matrix”, “Enter the Purple Haze” is a perfect phrase to highlight the transition between worlds. Jimi Hendrix even made a song titled ‘Purple Haze’.

In the ideal sense, ‘Haze’ refers to confusion characterized by lack of clarity. In the Purple Haze, you’re equipped to think outside the box. The kind of creativity that changes the world takes place outside the bounds of limits. You can kiss sleep goodbye too.

You’re one joint away from unlocking your full potential

Just like supplements, using weed for creativity has to be done right. Sativa dominant species are prone to deliver better in this area. Experiment with each strain at varying doses whenever you’re trying to “crack a safe”. It’s advisable to start with small hits. Remember, the aim is to hack your way to becoming the next Einstein. You will know when you’ve hit the jackpot. The evidence is in the deeds. On that note, have you ever considered reading high? One of these strains may just inspire you to.
