Cannabis is a very popular and useful substance, though most people use it for recreational reasons only, cannabis can have a lot of other advantages. Apart from the amazing medical advantages of cannabis, it can also help you be more creative and increase your productivity.

Many people may not actually believe this because of the prevalent stigma in society. The biggest misconception is that cannabis makes you super ‘chilled out’ and you can’t work after using it. You should know that the effect of cannabis depends largely on the kind of strain you use. Very few people actually know the difference between indica vs sativa strains. Some strains do make you relaxed and lazy, but if you know about the right ones, you can experience more active and super productive highs.

So, if you feel like you are in a non-creative slump and need a nudge in the right direction, check out the following 7 Strains to give yourself a boost!
