While there is a significant stereotype surrounding marijuana smokers with being lazy and unmotivated, that’s not the whole truth. There are strains that can put their user in serious "couch locked", invigorated them with an energetic high, or a bit of both. Certain strains can make their user feel energetic, motivated and believe it or not clear-headed, leaving them ready to take on the day.
There are three major distinctions that people often make about marijuana; that a strain is a Sativa, Indica, or Hybrid. Of these three, more often then not, you will find that just about every strain has a bit of both. Below are a few ways Indica and Sativa are described:
Indica is often associated with being a heavy body high that makes you locked to your couch. It has the potential of making its user drowsy, relaxed, and stoned.
On the other hand a sativa is often associated with a cerebral high, that can leave you feeling potentially motivated, creative, and in some cases anxious.
Although we often classify the effects of cannabis as Sativa or Indica it is actually the Terpene profiles and Cannabinoids within each strain that provide the specific affects one can feel. The perfect mix of those two things can produce a productive, uplifting, and creative drive. If you're interested in finding a motivating high to jump start your day here are 5 strains that bust the myth that all cannabis makes you lazy:
