Many of the outspoken skeptics about cannabis hold to the argument that cannabis can make you lazy and unproductive. But cannabis is a highly diverse plant that contains no less than 111 cannabinoids. Many frequent cannabis users, from celebrities like Seth Rogen to ordinary working people, claim they can function productively while using cannabis. Of course, there are many cannabis strains that make you want to hang out on the couch, and they are absolutely ideal for relaxing and unwinding after a hard day. But most smokers know that there are a number of cannabis strains, especially sativas, that have the opposite effect. That’s because each cannabis strain contains different and unique amounts of cannabinoids. That’s why sativas induce a more uplifting, energetic feeling. Because they typically contain more cannabinoids that trigger dopamine production in the brain than indica strains.
HOW DOES CANNABIS BOOST ENERGY?
The production of dopamine can give a feeling of pleasure and reward, which has a motivating effect on us. That’s because both CB1 and CB2 (cannabinoid) receptors are linked to dopamine levels in the brain. Smoking a good sativa can help you get out of bed and make sure you get some work done! As I mentioned, there are countless strains, and each strain produces varying effects depending on the cannabinoids it contains. That’s why we’ve done our best to pick sativa and hybrid strains that we think can help put you in a motivated, productive state of being.
