Best Weed Strains for Productivity

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 24 May 2021 in Canna Blog

When people think of stoners, the stereotype is usually that we sleep, eat and laugh…. A lot! While cannabis can be very sedating and relaxing, the reality is that not all strains have these ‘stoney’ attributes. 

There are countless reasons why people love and use Cannabis. While some people use it to help themselves relax, others use it to boost focus, creativity, and mental clarity -- like a cup of coffee.

A misconception about weed is that it makes people lazy. Sure, some strains are more sedating than others, but there is also a plethora of strains known to increase focus, energy, and creativity.

It all depends on how you pair your strains with particular activities.

If you’re unsure about which strains will help with your day-to-day productivity, seek the help of your budtender and they might just point you to the perfect strain for your needs.

being productive

Here are some of our favorite strains known to boost productivity:

Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is known to produce a fast-acting and energizing cerebral high. Its uplifting effects make it popular for daytime use. Additionally, Sour Diesel can help relieve symptoms of depression and pain without the sedating side effects. You can rely on this strain to keep you productive and spark creativity.

Chemdawg

Chemdawg is a potent strain known for its strong cerebral effects. It’s also known to increase focus and can make you feel more social. The hybrid strain is rich in THC (15-20%) and low in CBD, it’s also known to be fast-acting, so be ready to get hit with that energizing high.

Sativa vs. Indica

If you feel like it’s hard for you to focus or remain productive after a smoke sesh, try switching strains, or saving that specific strain for the nighttime. Some people like to smoke Sativa dominant strains during the day and Indica strains at night. This is because Sativa-dominant strains usually contain higher percentages of THC compared to CBD, whereas Indica-dominant strains are the opposite. 

Typically, Sativa strains are more stimulating and are known for producing a “head high,” that increases creativity and focus, while Indica strains are more sedative, producing more of a body high with increased feelings of relaxation.
