Top Best Marijuana Strains for Creativity

Here is a list of the best weed for creativity that you should know about:

Island Sweet Skunk

Next on this list of best marijuana strain for creativity is the Island Sweet Skunk that will boost your creativity and leave a giant smile on your face. The variants of this strain are mostly Sativa-dominant hybrids, so it is sure to have it's standard “head high” and energizing effect that can reduce anxiety and stress so that you can have more creativity and focus.

Aside from having a creativity boost from this strain, it will also help you feel happy and uplifted. It does not have as much notoriety as Super Silver Haze when it comes to taste, but it can still be unpleasant for some because it can have a skunk or diesel-like flavor.

Sour Diesel

The Sour Diesel strain can easily be considered as one of the best looking bud strains because of its rose-like shape and orange, gold accents. However, since it is a Sativa dominant strain, it is also an excellent strain if you are looking to boost your creativity.

This strain is achieved by crossing Skunk No.1 and Northern lights. It has a high THC level at 25%, so that a small dose can go a long way. Upon smelling its buds, you will notice its distinct fuel-like aroma. When you consume it, expect that you will get a purely cerebral and uplifting experience.

The Sour Diesel is also popular aside from boosting creativity. It can help mitigate symptoms of ADD or ADHD, depression, and anxiety. It is also an excellent strain if you are suffering from constant headaches or inflammatory issues.

Jack Herer

Jack Herer strain has all the uplifting Sativa features with a mild body effect. It is a crossbreed between three strains; Northern lights #4, Shiva Skunk, and Haze. Although it is a predominantly Sativa strain, it does have a hint of Indica, which gives it a good combination of “heady high” and “body high.”

One of the most notable features of this strain is its excellent flavor. It tastes like sage with hints of lemon. It also has an excellent aroma, which is comparable to a fresh bouquet of flowers. Due to this, this strain is highly suggested for beginner consumers of Marijuana.

Despite its high level of THC content, which is between 18% to 23%, you will not feel like you're too dazed to move after consuming this. In fact, you will still be able to function if you want to write music, paint, or do other creative stuff.


The XJ-13 is another top-rated strain of weed that can immensely help improve your creativity. It is a Sativa Dominant hybrid, and its Indica counterpart is G-13 cannabis.

This strain is known for its enticing lemon and minty aroma, which will help you feel relaxed by simply inhaling it. Once you feel relaxed, you will then almost immediately feel your spirits and creativity lifted. It will also help you get the energy that you need to feel lively again.

People in the music industry recommend this strain if you happen to hit some roadblock when you are writing music or cramming to meet a certain deadline.

This strain also has a higher level of THCV, which will provide the consumer with a clear-headed effect. This is ideal if you are having trouble focusing or you are experiencing a lot of stress and anxiety.

However, the THC and THCV levels of this strain are highly dependent on its growing condition. This is why you must make sure to buy it from trusted growers or dispensaries.
