We all have trouble staying focused and motivated from time to time. At best, this can just be really annoying and slows us down when we are trying to get on with all of our chores, or worst when it hits at work. You might end up feeling like you are trapped at your desk with very little productivity!
There is one thing that a lot of people are now turning to in order to help them get over a lack of focus and productivity – cannabis. I know what you are thinking; how is using this psychoactive plant going to help me to do more work? Aren’t stoners known for being lazy couch potatoes? Well, that might be the typical stereotype for those who smoke cannabis, but it is largely a portrait that’s been painted in propaganda and movies that use scare tactics. In real life, if you know how to use cannabis, you can use it to potentially unleash heaps of productivity.
Are you now interested to see just how productive cannabis can make you? If so, you need to know how to use it. After all, simply getting high won’t make you want to work hard at all! Here are the secrets you need to know.
Get The Dosage Right
First of all, it’s important to think about the right level of dosage. If you take too much cannabis, you will end up very high and will just want to sleep. Ideally, you need as low a dosage as possible. It’s known that a high dose may make you tired and slow, however, a lower dose may actually provide you with a lot of energy. So, if you do want to be more productive, it’s important to remember that less is always more.
Look For High Levels Of Terpenes
Terpenes are naturally occurring in cannabis. Studies have shown that each terpene carries versatile smells, tastes, and effects giving the plant its characteristics. There are two main ones that should give you that extra little push to get your work done.
- Limonene: Limonene isn’t just found in cannabis – it’s also in citrus fruits as its what gives them their citrusy flavor! In cannabis, instead of giving the plant a citrus flavor, it actually provides it with some therapeutic properties. It can help relieve stress and many believe that it also encourages our minds to focus.
- Pinene: There are two types of pinene: alpha and beta. It’s known to help people be more alert and is also linked to improving creative thinking. Some research also suggests it can help improve memory function.
What Can Cannabis Help You Do?
So, now that you know why and how cannabis helps boost creativity, it’s time to think of all the work that you can now get done! Here are some ways cannabis users put your new-found productivity to use.
Declutter the House
Have you been lacking the motivation needed to clean your house and get rid of all that clutter that’s accumulated? Well, if you take a small amount of cannabis before you start cleaning, you might find just how quickly you can get all the housework done.
Work on a Creative Hobby
Having a bit of cannabis before you do something creative, like write a short story or paint a picture can really help your work. You can unleash your creative side and will find that hardly anything distracts you.
Be More Mindful
A few people find that smoking or vaping a little cannabis can help them be a lot more mindful throughout the day. This can be really beneficial when they try to meditate. So, next time you feel like you need to be a bit more present, see how a small dose or a drop from a tincture can help you get in the zone.
As you can see, the stereotypical lazy stoner isn’t necessarily true. Turns out cannabis may actually help you get through your to-do list! How will you put it to good use in your daily schedule?
