    Top 10 Best Cannabis Strains to Boost Creativity

    Top 10 Best Cannabis Strains to Boost Creativity - The Oozelife Blog - Ooze Weed Marijuana 420 Creative Process Art Inspiration

    Sativa strains are known for elevating cerebral effects that tend to enhance the thought process, while indica strains will induce relaxation and ease you into a sleepy haze. People have utilized marijuana to assist in fueling their creativity for a long time, as it can be a helpful tool in removing oneself from a mental/creative funk.

    Here are a few strains to consider the next time you happen to find yourself with a creative mental block.


    A multi-Cannabis Cup winner, this sativa-dominant hybrid is just as reliable and efficient as its namesake. AK-47 offers a long-lasting, uplifting high that allows your mind to wander but still stay focused on the task at hand. Users have found it easier to map out their creative thoughts while consuming this strain, and say it is ideal for hours of brainstorming as they can find themselves in a daze of creativity the entire time.

    If you cultivate your own, this is a strain to consider for your next grow if you are creative. True AK-47 will have a high THC content, but surprisingly you don’t have to worry about couchlock as it can keep you alert and mentally focused – even in social situations.

    Amnesia Haze

    Despite its name, Amnesia Haze is known to aid in productivity rather than make you forget. A regularly sought-after strain in Dutch coffee shops, this strain provides a mind-focused high that is also known to relieve anxiety.

    An 80/20 sativa dominant strain, true Amnesia Haze will have a sweet, lemon-citrus scent. You will feel happy, giggly, euphoric, energized, and, of course–creative–after consuming this strain.

    Blue Dream

    Blue Dream was born in California after a blueberry indica was crossed with the sativa Haze. This strain is known for a two-stage high: a trademark sativa hits first, then a more relaxed high is experienced in the second stage, one in which is known to aid in pain relief. Users say they like to use Blue Dream to unwind after a busy day spent developing ideas.

    This strain is also commonly used as a daytime medicine for those treating pain, nausea, and depression, due to its high THC content.


    If you are not a seasoned smoker, use caution when consuming Chemdawg as it tends to be pretty potent, with THC levels ranging from 15-20 percent. But, if you are a veteran cannabis consumer, this strain may be the strong euphoria inducing-hybrid you have been hoping for.

    Chemdawg has a very distinct, diesel-like aroma that can be smelled from a mile away. Users have expressed having a very cerebral experience along with a strong heavy-bodied feeling when consuming this strain.

    Durban Poison

    This strain is a 100 percent pure sativa that features optimal genetics. Originating from the South African port city of Durban, it is notorious for a sweet smell with energetic, uplifting effects.

    Durban Poison offers a unique taste, like that of licorice. It is known for being one of the most energizing strains around, making it ideal for long days of productive creativity.

    This strain’s over-sized resin glands also make it a popular choice for creating concentrates.

    Jack Herer

    This award-winning strain is a tribute to the marijuana activist and author of the same name. Jack Herer is popular as it is known to make its users feel extremely high while still capable of maintaining focus on creative projects.

    The Jack Herer strain was born from a mix of Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk with a Haze hybrid. The creators intended to capture the cerebral elevation associated with sativa strains while also achieving the heavy resin production typical of indicas.

    Kali Mist

    This strain can not only motivate immense energy but also shake your imagination awake with creative inspiration. Users can expect a rush of energy, focus, motivation, happiness, and creativity.

    Kali Mist is also known to be an aid in pain management and is recommended among many women as being reliable in easing menstrual pain.


    This strain is known to be especially helpful in breaking through writer’s block or any other barriers of creativity. Users have described it as having a unique ability to provoke an awe-inspiring, trippy high that can fuel immense amounts of creativity.

    Unlike many of the other strains on this list, LSD is actually an indica-dominant hybrid. You’ll feel a calm, anxiety-relieving psychedelic haze that can fuel your imagination endlessly. This strain also aids with insomnia, depression, lack of appetite, and general stress.

    Space Queen

    Want to see the galaxy? Space Queen is the child of Romulan and Cinderella 99, an indica-dominant hybrid that surprisingly delivers a strong, sativa-like cerebral high that then leads into a smooth and easy come down. Users say this strain is great for artistic expression, even citing that they have experienced deep psychedelic states after consumption.

    Space Queen is known to make users feel happy, relaxed, and giggly, and is best for stress, depression, pain, and insomnia.

    Sour Diesel

    A 90 percent sativa strain, Sour Diesel originated in California and has become a popular choice among celebrities. It is even considered to be one of the most powerful cannabis strains, ever, with an aroma so potent that it can’t be mistaken for another. Sour Diesel is known to invigorate a creative flow quickly and deliver energizing, dreamy cerebral effects.
