Cannabis is a well-known recreational drug. People all around the world enjoy it. The ultimate perk of using marijuana is that there is no hangover the next day – you remain a highly-functioning person ready to work, study, and run chores.
Why do people love marijuana so much? Well, using cannabis is a great way to relax after a long day considering its stress-relieving effect. For some people, it is a window into yet undiscovered layers of their personality, and some people just enjoy music and other forms of art better while under the influence of weed, as well as those small things like food and chatting with friends since it helps the environment feel cozy and safe.
Some people gain more confidence by using cannabis which helps them interact better with strangers at parties and other social gatherings.
Arts, crafts, and cannabis
As you may already know, there is no universal effect of marijuana on people. Of course, there are some things that vast majority experience while using different strains, but all in all, cannabis has a different impact on everyone.
The reason behind it is THC, a component responsible for altering perceptions and thought process. And since we are all different, it is no wonder that we all react differently to marijuana.
That being said, marijuana has a great impact on creativity. This is why, throughout history, cannabis has influenced many artist and thinkers. As an inspirational aid, evidence of cannabis presence can be found in both ancient and modern culture.
Many famous people are frequent users. They claim marijuana helps them express their thoughts and emotions through their art. And yes, while this wondrous plant elevates our thought process and helps us think of original and inspiring things, it does not miraculously give us the talent we do not have, it just helps us bring out the best of what we already have in ourselves.
When you think of famous people and weed, Bob Marley probably pops up in your head. Countless famous names are on the list of cannabis users: Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Matthew McConaughey, Brad Pitt, Steve Jobs, Willie Nelson, etc.
What happens to our brain when we’re high
Cannabis contains molecules that are similar to the ones our brains naturally produce on their own – cannabinoids. Of course, naturally produced molecules are at a much lower level compared to the rush caused by consuming marijuana. As a result of that “attack”, our imagination magnifies itself because cannabinoids dictate the communication between our brain cells.
The way we send, receive and process information is altered. The sense of euphoria and relaxation occur because cannabis affects the levels of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain.
Which strain to choose
Sativa or Indica, or a hybrid maybe? If you want to feel more energized, Sativa is the right choice for you because it will make you want to go out and do something. On the other hand, if you need to relax and/or get a good night sleep, you should pick Indica. Hybrids are either Sativa-dominant or Indica-dominant, and they combine the effect of both strains. You just need to know what you want your experience to be like and your choice will be easy.
In any case, your weed should be a vibrant green and you should be able to see trichome crystals on your product (the color indicates its freshness). If the color of the product is brown, it’s not fresh and it may lack the effect you were hoping to get out of it.
Of course, it is of great importance to know your tolerance to the product.
