You’ve probably fallen victim to the lazy stoner stereotype once or twice, or maybe even accused someone else of getting high and tuning out. But did you know that some strains of weed can actually improve focus and concentration, leading to greater productivity? It’s true. Not all weed sends you to the couch with a case of the munchies, and if you are looking for an energetic boost to tackle your to-do list, we’ve got you covered. Read on to discover how weed can actually promote productivity, and discover the best strains for productivity the next time you need to get some work done.
Cannabis and Productivity
We know, we know, it seems counterintuitive to get high and get stuff done, but there is a way to master this. Now, of course, getting absolutely stoned out of your mind is likely going to be more a distraction than a productivity tool. However, you can find the right kind of weed in just the right amount and find that sweet spot.
How Weed Works to Enhance Focus
You probably know the basic difference between indica and sativa strains of cannabis. Indicas are most often associated with “couch-lock” or the feeling of being sedated and stoned. These strains are excellent for pain management and getting a great night’s sleep.
Sativas are generally considered “daytime” strains and offer a high that comes with more of a mental boost than a full-body high. That’s why sativas are best known for their ability to enhance productivity and increase focus.
So, how does a sativa increase productivity? Here’s the deal – it’s not so much that the sativa itself makes you more productive, but rather, it sets the stage. Because sativas offer a cerebral high, the effects include having a clear head and the ability to zone in. You aren’t as distracted by physical effects like full-body melt, so as the high comes into focus mentally, you can more easily hone in on one task at hand.
When your mind is clear and your mood is elevated, it’s so much easier to concentrate and check off tasks one at a time without getting distracted. Another important consideration is dosage. Even though most sativas won’t send you off to an early bedtime, they can lead to anxiety or over-stimulation for some people.
To find the right dosage, start with a few puffs of a vape pen or joint before beginning your task. Have your list ready the night before so you are ready to get started. Start with a project that you absolutely have to complete first, followed by lesser important tasks. You’ll know you hit the sweet spot if you find that you are in the flow and not bothered by outside noise.
