Everyone wants something different from their cannabis, and that may vary depending on your mood or what is on your to-do list. For those times that you need to be productive or take full advantage of your brain’s thinking power, consider one of the following strains, all known for their ability to motivate the mind in most consumers.
With a name like Brainstorm Haze, it should come as no surprise that this 90-percent sativa hybrid helps you brainstorm and motivates your mind. Delta 9 labs bred the strain from Sensi Star, Thai Haze, Warlock, and AK-47.
This strain makes you feel as if you float in the air and are on a fully different level. It is great during the day, making you feel enthusiastic and working quickly. It is also a great way to overcome any lack of enthusiasm you have about work. Supplement that with a creativity boost and your mind will be ready for productivity.
Brainstorm Haze also enhances your sociability, so expect to become a bit talkative. This means that it is not only good for being creative at work, but also for socializing at drinks afterward. Just remember to keep some water on hand as this strain can cause some dehydration. Some people also experience itchy eyes so that you may want a few eye drops nearby as well.
As the name implies, Chocolope tastes like chocolate as well as coffee. The high is smooth and enhances your mood while boosting your energy. It will give you the motivation to get things done, leaving you feeling as if you are ready to go and stress-free. It is popular to take in the morning to set you up for a day of productivity.
Cinex is a sativa-dominant hybrid that is the result of crossing Cinderella 99 and Vortex. It is excellent for boosting creativity, feeling good, and a clear-headed high, as well as being popular for medical marijuana.
When you enjoy Cinex during the day, you will experience an intense cerebral high that manages to intoxicate you while still keeping your mind clear enough to function with ease. At the same time, it boosts your energy, so you feel motivated to get things done. This hybrid also elevates your mood, helping you feel unbeatable in some ways, which only furthers its motivational effects.
Not only does Cinex motivate your mind, but it does so for hours, making it especially useful. Just keep in mind that this strain is potent as THC content can be as high as 25 percent. As such, those new to marijuana may want to try a different strain on this list or take it slow with Cinex. Anyone who does try this strain should expect some dehydration and cotton mouth due to its potency.
Durban Poison has a unique taste that combines licorice or aniseed with hints of mint. The strain is piney and sweet, giving you intense energy boosts. At the same time, you will experience euphoria and clear thoughts.
Many people compare smoking Durban Poison to drinking a shot of espresso since it gets you clear-headed and energetic within moments.
Kali Mist is a sativa-dominant hybrid with 90 percent sativa content. Serious Seeds originally bred this strain in 1993, and it has earned multiple awards over the years. These include winning the Hydro Cup in 1995 and the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2000 within the sativa category. Although the origins of the strain are a secret, those in the know assume it is the result of crossing two hybrids that are sativa dominant as well.
Those who are new to cannabis will feel comfortable using Kali Mist, as it tends to have about 15 percent THC and 1 percent CBD. Those with experience using Kali Mist suggest enjoying it in the morning due to its ability to boost creativity levels while calming your mind. Others enjoy it right before yoga or meditation to help enhance those experiences.
The flavor of Kali Mist is sweet and spicy, while the odor is strong to the point that some people find it overbearing. Beginners should make sure to start with a smaller dose, as the psychedelic effects of this strain are sometimes increased every time you use it.
Lemon Haze is a 70-percent sativa dominant that has slight CBD amounts and 17 percent THC. It results from crossing Super Skunk and Silver Haze, while its name comes from its aroma that is similar to a freshly-cut lemon. You will also enjoy a sweet aftertaste.
Smoking Lemon Haze will motivate your mind in a similar way to drinking a cup of coffee. You will get a somewhat familiar rush of energy but without becoming jittery from consuming too much caffeine.
That productivity and motivation are supplemented by an uplifting feeling that lets this strain do well in creative and social settings. It will also likely make you more talkative, making it a nice option for presentations or group work.
Mango Haze comes in two variations, either of which is great for productivity and motivation. One version has high THC content while the other has high CBD content, up to 23 and 12 percent, respectively. The high-THC variation combines Northern Lights No. 5, Skunk No. 1, and Haze.
Beginners will want to stick to the high-CBD version due to the potency of the high-THC one. When you use the high-THC Mango Haze strain, expect to feel an intense cerebral high that lasts hours. You will enjoy a boost of energy that leads to sociability, productivity, and creativity. Your body will also relax, but this will not interfere with your brain’s functioning.
Super Silver Haze
Super Silver Haze combines spiciness with sweetness and gives you an uplifting cerebral high known for its intensity. This strain will provide you with long-lasting euphoria in bursts. At the same time, the hybrid’s indica side brings some elements of relaxation and stress relief. Expect to feel highly productive and mentally lifted when you enjoy this strain.
