While some people stick to smoking weed at night as a sleep aid, many turn to pot much earlier in the day—perhaps looking to boost their creativity and productivity. But when it comes to smoking, there’s a fine line between a euphoric, potentially breakthrough-inducing high and, well, the type of high that leads to a deep couch imprint and delivery containers. What dictates this fine line? Simply put, the kind of pot you’re smoking.
On a higher level, pot can typically be broken down into three families: sativas, indicas and hybrids. Sativas are generally lighter highs. Indicas, on the other hand, are heavier—and, for many, more tiring highs. Hybrids are somewhere in the middle. Within these groups, however, there is a multitude of different strains that will have different effects on their users.
For those specifically looking to boost their creativity after a joint or two, these are some strains you should keep an eye out for.
