Cannabis has long been considered an effective agent for stimulating creativity.

Jay Z, Cheech and Chong, Lady Gaga, Carl Sagan, and even Shakespeare are among the most famous creative thinkers who have relied on Mary Jane as their muse.

Cannabis stimulates the part of the brain that’s associated with out-of-the-box thinking. It also increases the brain’s production of dopamine, which enhances our creativity as well as our drive and ability to focus.

If you’re working on an artistic project or a work/life-related problem that you can’t seem to get your head around, cannabis might be able to help you break through your creative block and find a solution.

Sativa strains are highly recommended for creative work. You should especially keep your eye out for strains that contain high concentrations of the terpenes limonene or pinene, as they can help improve your focus.

In terms of recommended creativity-inducing strains, you can’t go wrong with Sour Diesel, Jack Herer, and Lemon Meringue #2.
