We have recently talked a lot about the medical use of cannabis and its effects on the body and mind. Let us now broach the subject of recreational use of marijuana. After all, it is not only a great medicine, but an excellent pastime.
Today, we’d like to take a closer look at the use of cannabis to activate the frontal lobe - the part of your brain responsible for creative thinking. According to scientists, people with creative potential have increased activity in the frontal lobe, and the use of cannabis elevates it even more. We can not say that if you start consuming marijuana, you will immediately become a musician, writer, or poet. Unfortunately, marijuana can only activate certain processes in your brain, reveal hidden abilities, talents and potential. This refers not only to musicians and writers, but scientists as well. History has plenty of cases, when scientists found a particular solution to a physics / math / chemistry problem only after consuming marijuana.
Cannabis has long been a companion for the creative mind. It is a way to expand the imagination, provide access to new thoughts, concepts and ideas. For many of us, cannabis adds color to our world and allows us to appreciate the things out clogged mind usually discards or filters out.
So how does marijuana affect creativity from a medical point of view? Yes, we wanted to focus on the recreational side of it but you can’t do without science :) It’s actually simple enough - when consumed, cannabis stimulates the release of Dopamine by the nervous system. What is Dopamine? It is a hormone that belongs to the group of so-called hormones of happiness, pleasure, euphoria. When we lack Dopamine, we become depressed and vice versa. Dopamine helps you to relax, clear your head of anxiety and concentrate on the goal.
Some important things to consider are your tolerance and frequency of intake. And as much as possible is not the best thing. It is believed that the most successful creative stimulation comes from consuming about 1-2 times a week. And you should definitely avoid stronger strains. The recommended average THC level is about 19%, and less is better than more.

And it is enjoyed by both by beginners and experienced users alike.

But we are sure that you will be able to find and pick the flower that is right just for you, your area of expertise and that it will help you achieve your dream.
