Hoping to get things done after smoking your next bowl? While cannabis is often stereotyped as a relaxant, by choosing the right strain, you can still ensure you knock out your to-do list.
First, we should mention that if you know you have stuff to do around the house, microdosing can help ensure you don’t sink back into the couch. It also might be helpful to first make a plan for the tasks at hand before toking up. Lists are good.
Second, since different strains have different elements, like terpenes and cannabinoid content, it’s important to choose one that’s likely to help you get in the zone – not get you zoned out.
Best Strains for Focus
When choosing the best strains for focus, we looked for those that offer energetic and cerebral high, great for tuning into a big project, creative activity, or anything else that begs for your concentration.
Cinex: This is a high to lift you out of the day’s doldrums and get focused on what needs to be done. Enjoy its uplifting effects, helping make rote chores much easier to knock out or at least feel more positive while you do them.
Green Crack: Though the moniker’s not the most beloved in the cannabis community, it was actually dubbed by Snoop Dogg himself after experiencing its decidedly sativa buzz. It’s great for getting juiced and taking on the day.
Chocolope: This delicious-tasting strain was High Times’ Strain of the Year in 2007 and continues to be the favorite of many cannasseurs today. Enjoy the euphoric mental shift as the tasks at hand become much more appealing.
Jack Herer: This classic sativa is great for activities that require conversating, giving you a clear-headed but euphoric high. An energy boost will also help you with whatever the day is demanding of you.
Blue Dream: This delicious sweet-berry-tasting hybrid strain is beloved for its combination of body-relaxation and cerebral stimulation. It’s great for working out or doing other physical activities that require focus.
Harlequin: This strain is high in CBD, making it less intoxicating than a high-THC bud. Smelling sweet and musky, this sativa hybrid will have you crushing your to-do list.
Mother’s Helper: This elated high comes from combining plants from opposite ends of sativa and indica effect spectrum, resulting in a buzz that gets you moving via an energetic rush.
Sour Diesel: If you’re looking for a cerebral high that’s also energizing, choose this popular sativa to get focused. It’s well-known (and loved) for its pungent smell, so be mindful if you’re trying to keep discreet.
True OG: This indica provides a mellow high that focuses the mind. It’s a slow creeper, taking around 10 minutes to kick it, but is great for activities that involve creative thinking, or livening up otherwise dull tasks.
