Best weed strain for creativity?
Posted 12 May 2010 - 01:32 PM
This may seem like a far-fetched question, but bare with me for a few moments and speak your mind.
Anyways, i haven't smoked in about 6 months, but i plan to do it again soon once i move to my own place. I'm also planning to grow it, which took me to think which strain should i pick.
I'm into creative activities a lot, and enjoy to do them high, be it photography, drawing, playing piano or guitar or writing. Even just going with the music and "tripping" to it, so to speak.
I know the two main "types" of cannabis are sativa and indica, but I'm not quite sure of the difference in effects yet. I come here asking what strains (indica or sativa, but if you want to go as far to name a particular strain that's ok) could be better for these kind of creative activities. Another thing would be if they were helpful in easing anxiety, since i had a few anxiety episodes on weed before stopping, but that's just a plus.
So, what say you?

EDIT: Differences, in brief -
Sativa: More of a trippy 'heady' high. Sometimes very energetic. Causes anxiety in some people.
Indica: More of a 'couchlock' stony, body high. Sometimes makes one sleepy. Tends to be more relaxing for some.

I prefer a nice hybrid. Most people will say Sativa's (like OSG said), but the couch-lock feeling from the Indica is really helpful at calming the body (imo) and you almost forget that your body is even there. Add in some Sativa and some good tunes and the creative juices start flowing.
So if i were to choose a hybrid, would it be best if it was sativa or indica dominant?

it in my opinion more depends on when your herb was harvested. like if it was harvested with clearer trichomes the high is more uplifting and you more in a sense intellectual, not to say smarter. but also since you wont feel such a body load and couch lock you'll be up for doing more things.
Somewhat true, but the genetic background can make a big difference when coupled with targeted harvesting.
I usually harvest in phases over the course of a week. I pick some when the trichomes are just turning milky. Even with an Indica that will produce a more 'head' high. Some I pick when it's about 20% amber. That's more balanced, all else being equal. Some I'll let get very much amber. That's a perfect sleep aid and pain reliever.
Still, the genetics of the strain play an equally large if not larger role than when it's harvested.

Well... It's up to you. Do you like to do creative things while you're tiredish/chill? Or, while you're spacey/day dreaming?
Maybe a mix of both hehe, somewhat chill but day dreaming. That's why the hybrid option seemed better, maybe a sativa dominant... Any strain recommendations on that?
