Increase Productivity with These Cannabis Products and Strains

By Danyal Swan January 17, 2024
Cannabis for Productivity and Motivation

As we ease into the new year, goals are still being set, for a variety of facets of life.

Enhancing productivity is a widely shared goal, and among the myriad of strategies available, one unexpected ally might be cannabis. Move over, age-old stereotype of the idle cannabis user – enter the era of the high-achieving enthusiast.

In a revealing study from 2016, aptly named "Splendor in the Grass?", researchers delved into how cannabis influences executive function. They discovered that after three months of medical marijuana use, participants showed a notable uptick in the speed of completing tasks, maintaining accuracy throughout. Additionally, survey data indicated that cannabis users' productivity levels paralleled those of non-users.

While comprehensive clinical research on cannabis as a productivity booster is limited, a wealth of anecdotal accounts point to its potential benefits. User reviews across a range of cannabis products – edibles, smokable forms, and vaporizers – often highlight a boost in energy, motivation, and creativity.

As we navigate through 2024, those seeking innovative ways to augment their productivity might find an unexpected edge in cannabis.

Our research into user reviews has highlighted some of the top-rated cannabis products and strains known for increasing energy and productivity. However, it's important to remember that the effects of cannabis can vary widely among individuals. For a customized approach, it's advisable to consult a Cannabis Advisor who can help pinpoint the options that best align with your personal needs.

Cannabis Strains for Motivation and Productivity

Embodying full-spectrum benefits and epitomizing the plant's most synergistic effects, the bud represents the most authentic way to immerse in the diverse impacts of marijuana strains. According to enthusiastic feedback from customers like you, some standout strains for fostering motivation and enhancing productivity include:

Savvy B52 Bomber

Uplifting, euphoric, and dreamy. B52 Bomber is the potent cross of Durban Poison with Blue Dream, two tried-and-true cultivars in the cannabis world. This exceptional sativa delivers a harmonious mix of invigorating uplifting energy and soothing body relaxation. The strain's distinctive flavor profile, combining notes of anise and berry, coupled with its aromatic qualities, makes it a delight for the senses. Add to this the visually appealing frosty nugs, and it's no wonder B52 Bomber is a top pick among cannabis connoisseurs.

I read the reviews before this purchase and glad I did, exactly what I wanted. Something to be active, happy and chill without spiking my anxiety. I'd say overall it's worth the buy!😁

(the) Essence Orange Pound Cake

Orange Pound Cake packs a citrusy, sweet escape into frosty, trichome-coated buds and potent aromas of vanilla and cloves. Said to bring about a “lighter sense of self,” this uplifting cross of Clementine and Wedding Cake is a popular pick for novices and experienced users alike.

just what i was looking for, a happy, uplifting, creative buzz, but still relaxed, calm and energized at the same time, this is a new favorite for sure, buds are nice size and cured just right, taste is there too, highly recommend

Good Day Farm Super Lemon Haze

There's a reason this cultivar won first place at the 2014 Seattle Cannabis Cup for medical sativa. Stimulating and uplifting, energizing and creativity boosting, this cross of Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze brings the flavor along with effects. Expect notes of sweet citrus candy and zest, with a hint of tart.

Sativas like this really make me creative and help me get over procrastinating. If you have ADHD, like me, it kicks your brain into overdrive and you wanna be super productive. You feel this high a lot more in your face, head, and upper body areas and its a warm lightening feeling.

Real Leaf Lilac Diesel

Big buds, with uplifting, energizing, chatty effects. Lilac Diesel is a favored cross of Silver Lemon Haze with Forbidden Fruit, which collide to provide a delightful flavor profile with notes of earth, pine, and sweet berries, cultivated by Michigan favorite Real Leaf.

This product gave me energy and inspiration to get out of the recliner and do something. After my cervical fusion I had no desire to do anything, this helped get me get my day started and I accomplished quite a lot.

Marijuana Vapes for Productivity and Motivation

When it comes to combining ease and strength, vaping takes the crown. Many users favor this inhalation method for its subtle scent and rapid onset of effects, as well as its convenient portability. Vapes stand out as an excellent choice for those seeking a swift surge in productivity and energy. Dive into our top picks for Zen-approved vapes:

Savvy Happy Hour Summer Melon

Get a taste of summer year-round with Happy Hour Summer Melon. This Savvy strain lifts your spirits without the spirits and provides a stimulating boost of energy, according to reviewers. And the flavor? A juicy burst of honeydew melon.

This is a new brand and vape. I gave these 5 stars (though a 4.5 is better I think) because of price and quality. Taste, meh. But all vapes are like that for me. Get it at first then nothing. It is a "melon" taste if that's a perk 4 U...A mid day "treat" that helps with focus (ADHD) quite well. Got a little "spacy" after several drags (+5)...I recommend this, especially for raking leaves (FALL's HERE....)

Osage Creek Bomb Pop

Bomb Pop is an even-keel hybrid crafted by Osage Creek for relaxation and creativity. What patients love as much as the effects is the flavor: expect sugary sweet flavors that will keep you coming back for more.

This is a great cart! Rocked my head after smoking very little.

- Reviewer h****8, who added Bomb Pop helps them get active, get creative, and provides a boost of energy.

Available in Arkansas.

Redbud Roots CultivArt Ultra Blue Dream

This artist-focused series combines delicious strains with custom artwork, and Ultra Blue Dream is a standout. The Cultivart option blends the best parts of Blue Dream into an accessible cartridge: creative, uplifted, and energizing effects underscored by the delightful flavor of sweet berries.

This redbud blue dream CultivArt is by-far my favorite blue dream product out of all the carts I’ve gotten at the dispensary.

Cannabis Edibles for Motivation and Productivity

Gone are the days of THC-isolate edibles delivering uniform effects regardless of the product. Modern cannabis edibles have evolved, now featuring strain-specific oils or infused with unique terpene blends, designed to offer nuanced, purpose-driven effects. This includes options tailored for boosting motivation and productivity. Explore some of our patient's top choices:

Bits Yuzu Zone Gummies

Don’t zone out, stay in the moment with a Bit of help from Yuzu Zone. A thoughtful blend of ginseng, reishi, THC and CBG, this savvy sativa edible embodies anti-procrastination, meant to help get you through that lengthy to-do list. Less mandatory practice, more happily smashing aces.

These are my fave! I buy these repeatedly for pain, and perks are motivation & creativity.

Encore Mango Sativa RSO Gummies

A tropical fusion of mango flavor with a sativa terpene profile curated to provide uplifting effects, Encore Mango RSO Gummies are the full-spectrum option missing from your stash. These edibles are ideal for those inevitable days when tackling your to-do list seems easier said than done, providing a spark of energy and motivation.

My absolute go-to with any purchase. Keeps me active and energized while simultaneously relaxed.

Available in Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Ohio, and in Pennsylvania as Verano Sweet RSO Troches.

Good Day Farm Berry Blast 4-in-1 Gummies

For those that love sweet berry flavor and customizable dosing, Good Day Farm Berry Blast is the way to go. The 4-in-1 option is a scored edible, providing 7.5mg THC per scored piece or a macrodose of 30mg per gummy.

I love this gummy! I can microdose during the day at work and it's just enough to take the edge off when we have very busy days. I have major ADHD and anxiety that I'm not medicated for, and the microdose helps with focus. On my days off, I can take 1 whole gummy in the morning and either lay in bed and play games or I'm up cleaning the house or hanging with friends. It's really just all around a great gummy. :-)

Available in Arkansas.

Wyld Raspberry Sativa Enhanced Gummies

Crafted with real fruit and a blend up uplifting terpenes for sativa effects, Wyld Raspberry gummies deliver. As they state, these edibles are, "Ideal for keeping you focused on the task at hand, refining your creative endeavors, or even better, getting you out on your next expedition!" Count us in.

I usually take 3 to 4 on my days off. Nice way to do chores, make art, or just think. Best High I've ever had.
