Artists of all types—from William Shakespeare to Miley Cyrus—often credit marijuana as being a key to their creativity. As more research is conducted on how marijuana affects the brain, we’re beginning to understand just why creative types enjoy smoking the herb.
According to a study carried out by Berkley Medical School, cannabis stimulates creative drive by increasing activity in the frontal lobe of your brain, which triggers artistic and innovative thought. More specifically, sativa-dominant strains are known to provide cannabis users with peppy, energetic highs that inspire them to write, sing, paint and create. Here are some of the best inspiration-inducing sativa strains that might spark your next big idea.
It’s important to note that no cannabis strains truly produce the same results for everybody. Marijuana itself affects everyone differently and each unique strain may have varying effects on those who consume it. Use this list as a starting point to discover which strains get you creativity to reach peak levels. Who knows, one of your favorite strains might lead you to a stroke of (artistic) genius.
