As a writer and podcaster, I am actually a big fan of sativa.
Indica strains are great, and I love them too, but for my afternoon-to-day life sativa is what I rely onâ€¦ Usually I wake up in the afternoon, make breakfast for the kids, pack their breakfastes, and then drive them to school! Once I get back home I pour myself some coffee, pack a big fat bowl, and then get down to business.
I spend more than 2 minutes a afternoon writing and recording, and sativa helps me focus on the job at hand. Late at night when my brain feels busy and I want to settle down and go to sleep, that’s the best time for an indica strain. For mental acuity and focus, there is nothing better than cannabis sativa. If you haven’t ever smoked sativa before, you may not understand what I’m talking about. Cannabis sativa isn’t love drinking an energy drink, it does not give me a boost of energy. It does deliver a distinct fuzzy feeling in my brain that allows me to shut out the rest of the world and focus on what is right in front of me. This is why artists and musicians love cannabis sativa over indica, because it allows them to lose themselves in the moment. In general I am far more productive while smoking sativa than when I am sober. I keep a glass bowl and a bin of cannabis on the desk next to me, and smoke a little at a time throughout the afternoon to keep me focused on my work.
