Spark your creativity with CannaSOS strain filter
In many ways, choosing a strain of marijuana is like choosing a breed of dog for a pet. A Great Dane vs. a Chihuahua: marijuana strains are as different from one another as breeds of dogs are.
Are all dogs the same? Are there not some major differences between a Pitbull and a Pekingese? Of course there are! And depending on the type of pet you want, you’re going to pick a specific breed of dog.
The same line of reasoning applies to all plants and animals in the natural world, and this includes marijuana. People use different strains of marijuana for different reasons, and it really doesn’t make sense to make sweeping statements like “marijuana makes you sleepy”.
Romulan Grapefruit is the strain of bud to smoke or vape if you need to get some shut eye, and you want a night time sleeping aide. In contrast, a strain like Alice in Wonderland will very likely keep you up all night giggling.
Some people, after years of experimenting with different strains of weed, eventually come across the strains that works right for them. However, here at CannaSOS, we want to take out any guess work involved in finding a variant of the cannabis plant that works perfectly. We have an easy-to-use strain selection tool that allows you to pick out a strain based on its characteristics.
For example, let’s say you’re an artist or musician, and you’re looking for some marijuana plant power to give you a creative boost. What strains of marijuana are best for the creative types? To find out, we can use the CannaSOS strain filter to narrow the database of 1045 marijuana strains available up to date.
First, we want a strain that includes “creative” amongst its characteristics. So we open up the filter, and we go to “effects”, then to “include effects”, and we select “creative”. Right away the database shrinks from 1045 strains to 548.
So that’s a characteristic you do want, but of course there are some effects associated with many strains of marijuana that you do not want to get in the way of your creative process. For example, if you’re working on a new track on Ableton, Cubase, or another music production program, you don’t want to be wasting any time racking your brain trying to remember where you saved that awesome bassline you wanted to sample. In other words, you want your strain to exclude the “memory loss” effect.
Easy. Go to “effects” again, but this time go to “exclude effects” and tick off “memory loss”. The range of strains you want to look into gets narrowed down even further.
However, the CannaSOS strain filter isn’t just based on effects that you want to include or exclude. The filter is more robust than that. “Marijuana” is a broad term which refers to a genus. Let’s look at the dog analogy again: “Canis” is the genus, and “wolves”, “jackals”, “coyotes”, and “dogs” are examples of species, or categories.
Likewise, Marijuana is the genus, and it’s broken down into 3 main categories: sativa, indica, and hybrids (combinations of the two).
Sativa strains have an energizing effect, whereas an indica has a more calming, sedative effect. Keep in mind that we are looking for a strain that’s going to get the creative juices flowing. We’re looking for stimulation. We need a Sativa!
The CannaSOS strain filter has a “categories” filter. Let’s click on “Sativa”. Right away, we’re down to 86 strains. Now we’re talking.
Let´s take a closer look at 5 of the best strains for enhancing creativity that we have in the database here on CannaSOS:
1. Willie Nelson
If you´re making music, you might want to try a strain that’s named after a famous country musician! This strain has an earthy aroma with a spicy pepper flavor with hints of pineapple.
2. Queen Mother
This strain has a mossy and musky flavor and aroma. In addition to a noticeable lift in creativity, people with certain medical conditions turn to this particular strain because it boosts appetite. One downside is that it increases heart rate, and some people find this particularly uncomfortable.
3. Electric Lemon G
This strain is aptly named. It has a strong, zesty, lemon and lime taste.
4. Casey Jones
Maybe you make comic book style art, and you smoke or vape for inspiration. Casey Jones is a character from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that´s a favorite with fans of the classic comic.
You want to use this strain during the day, because it will definitely keep you up all night.
5. Green Crack
This strain has gotten a lot of publicity, probably due to its attention grabbing name. It is a great strain though, with a euphoric and stimulating high. If you have to deal with weed intolerant places, people, or situations you might want to avoid Green Crack as its odor is quite pungent and noticeable.
So there’s five strains that spark creativity. You can narrow it down further based on which flavor you prefer, and which effects you want to avoid. The CannaSOS strain filter isn’t just based on effects or categories, you can select strains based on flavors, medical indications, best time for use, gender and age, and even zodiac signs.
