There are countless different strains of cannabis, which is great for people who appreciate the versatility of this plant. Some strains are associated with feelings of deep relaxation, while others are typically considered to be more uplifting. When you’re in the mood to create art, or pursue other creative endeavors, you may find a cerebral strain more appealing. We almost always recommend a sativa strain in those cases.
Best Sativa Strains
Sativas almost always make the best weed strains for creativity. They’re known for inspiring a rush of thoughts, which is extremely helpful for many people who are trying to push the limits of their minds. People from artists to mathematicians have looked to cannabis as a way to remove mental blocks, and pull themselves out of a funk if they’ve been feeling stuck in a creative rut. Here are just a few of our favorite sativa strains for when we want to feel more inspired.
Grapefruit Sour Diesel
Grapefruit Sour Diesel is an invigorating strain and known for its namesake aroma that fills the room. It is a delightful hybrid strain with some of the most pungent scent profiles of any strain. These flowers smell like sweet, freshly cut grapefruit with undertones of fuel.
It’s associated with effects so cerebral that some people describe the experience as being almost dreamlike. It’s been reported to give most adult-use and medical patients a focused mental high. It’s also a common choice for medical patients who have stress, depression, or physical pain, and addressing those things can further help kick off the creative process.
Super Silver Haze
If you haven’t heard of Super Silver Haze yet, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with it as soon as you get a chance. It won the High Times Cannabis Cup for three straight years in 1997, 1998, and 1999. It gets its legendary genetics from other world-renowned strains like Haze, Skunk, and Northern Lights. The result is a bud that’s associated with uplifting effects and bursts of energy that last for a long time. People often say that they feel just the right level of creativity after Super Silver Haze and that they’re still focused enough to put that creativity to work.
While Tangerine Haze is technically a hybrid strain, it’s very much sativa-dominant and definitely qualifies for this list. It was created in the Netherlands by crossing G13 Haze with NYC Diesel, and fortunately for us, this strain has made its way back to Colorado. The strain got its name because of the delightful citrus scent and aroma, but its effects have played just as big of a role in helping to popularize this strain. People who are looking for a good daytime strain of cannabis often choose Tangerine Haze, and it’s known for producing productive, stimulating, cerebral experiences.
Though you might not find some edibles that are made with certain strains you can definitely find sativa-dominant edibles at your favorite Colorado dispensaries. Since edibles are known for lasting much longer, this is an option if you’re planning to undertake a long creative session. No need to worry about taking breaks from your work or play due to loss of focus or inspiration.
