Art is a beautiful expression of life. Whether your preferred medium is music, literature, acting, or creating, there’s a deep sense of individuality and inspiration from each and every thing that has ever been created. In the recent days since cannabis legalization, cannabis has been credited for some of the most beautiful paintings, short films, and songs to have ever been recorded.
If you’re asking yourself “why?”, it’s because we all have a story to tell. We all lead rich, fulfilled lives and feel emotions deeply, but cannabis has been able to connect us with those feelings on a much deeper level. Cannabis provides us with the ability to step outside of ourselves and our day to day lives to reflect on what matters the most to us and how we can express it.
It’s deeper than that, though. Multiple studies conducted on cannabis and the effects of THC have concluded that cannabis does have a notable effect on creativity in addition to its effect on our sense of self. Cannabis is able to bridge the gap between our emotional mind and our cognitive mind. Studies have shown that cannabis has a notable effect on creativity, motivation, and focus by stimulating our frontal lobes with increased blood flow. This improves our ability to utilize divergent and abstract thinking.
Divergent and abstract thinking make it possible for art, music, and literature to flow from us. When you use cannabis, you step outside of your black and white mentality to explore creative ways to solve problems and express yourself. While studies have shown that cannabis doesn’t make creative people more creative, it improves the cognition that goes into creating.
If you lead an artistic lifestyle, cannabis can help you think more open-mindedly, giving you the opportunity to express yourself in a beautiful, personal way. All in all, the biggest takeaway is that lower doses are always more effective for artists and creatives than high doses, since they’re able to help and boost your mentality without hindering your ability to tell your story.
