Finding your muse is not an easy task. From insecurities to discomfort and racing thoughts, anything can obstruct a good session. For the successful channeling of a flow state, few substances are as loyal to creatives as cannabis. It’s an effective medicine for several conditions, ranging from pain to PTSD, and liberates the self from worry. In that regard, there are many cannabis strains that may actually boost your creativity.
Each condition varies between patients, so there’s no creative strain that will work for every single smoker. However, Limonene rich strains tend to bring rich cerebral and creative highs. Pinene is another inspiring terpene, but several patients find it induces paranoia due to how active of a high it can cause.
Caryophyllene is a terpene famed for its anti-inflammatory qualities, but rather than inspiring creative energy its soothing nature coaxes out expressions that want to be made. For those distracted by pain, indica strains rich in such a terpene, or hybrids with that are great choices to make. Limonene strains excel in treating depression, and Pinene is a jolt of energy.
Trial and error is the only way to know for sure, but the average person will get the creative energy flowing after smoking strains which reek of fruit or pine. Any crisp strain which smells chemically or sweet will be interesting for creative work. Hybrids are easier to get into, but sativas make for excellent daily drivers, especially as a morning smoke.
