Have you ever lacked inspiration to get a job or creative project done? There’s a cannabis strain for that. Heightening senses and sparking creativity are part of improving inspiration. Inspiration can be gained from nearly anything but may come a little easier with a little THC influence. We’ve hunted down 9 cannabis strains that promote inspiration to make it a little easier for you.


Chocolope is a strain that tastes like dark chocolate coffee. You might think, due to its flavor profile, that it’s a nighttime strain but this is a sativa. It’s a blend of Cannalope Haze and Chocolate Thai.

The effects are heavily cerebral but also help boost inspiration and creativity. For those working in the food service industry – this strain may help you come up with some new menu items.

Chocolope is also ideal for those with depression and high levels of stress. It induces happiness, euphoria, energy and an uplifted spirit. Its relaxing properties may help your mind focus on finding something to gain inspiration from – whether it’s for work or a personal project.

Orange Haze

Have you heard of this citrusy, cerebral hybrid? Orange Haze is a combination of Haze and Orange Bud. The Orange Bud is where it gets its wonderful citrus flavor. It is a sativa-dominant strain that might also boost your energy a little.

Some of this strains attributes include:

The buds are dense and sticky. This strain can be quite potent, so consider a sample size dose first.

Ice Cream

The name itself sounds fun. Ice Cream is an indica-dominant hybrid with a sweet and smooth flavor. It’s a well-balanced strain for use in the evenings and late at night.

Ice Cream is a great strain when you’ve got a deadline coming up soon on a creative or design project, but you’re just stuck. If you work in a creative-based career you know that being creative all of the time doesn’t always happen.

With Ice Cream, you’re relaxed so your mind is open to new influences and the silliest little thing might inspire you to finish that project – and it could be one of the best creative visions you’ve had.

Strawberry Diesel

Strawberry Diesel is a fast-acting, intense hybrid. This isn’t a strain for new cannabis users as the effects do come on fast and strong. They are also long-lasting.

When you need some inspiration with a clear, focused mind – this is the strain for you. A benefit of Strawberry Diesel is that you can use it anytime of the day or night. Since this strain does promote the giggles, your inspiration may come from something funny.

The munchies are also likely due to the Sour Diesel component, so have something to snack on on-hand.


It’s hard to find inspiration if you’re falling asleep but the sativa strain Grapefruit might help wake up your mind and body. This also helps your brain be more open to influence, which may help you find that item of inspiration that’s been stressing you out. If a migraine happens to be blocking your inspiration, Grapefruit will take care of that for you.

Happiness and an uplifted spirit are additional characteristics of Grapefruit that may spark your creativity and boost your inspiration.

If you have an anxiety-related condition – this may not be the strain for you.

Blueberry Haze

Blueberry Haze is a sweet tasting hybrid that puts your mind in a pleasant space. This strain is best used in smaller doses. While it is a hybrid, a little too much can make you require a nap. Mood often impacts inspiration. If you just aren’t in a good mood, it’s hard for you to become inspired for positive reasons. Blueberry Haze improves your mood and creates euphoria that helps your mind expand and become more thoughtful.

Depression, pain and stress can also be factors that hinder your inspiration. Maybe you’re scheduled to give an inspirational or motivational speech – that’s really hard to do when you’re unhappy or in pain. Blueberry Haze is a good strain for depression, stress and pain.

This is also a great strain to use a small dose of and take a walk in nature for inspiration. It helps you focus on the things around you a little bit better.


Tangie is a citrusy tasting sativa that is associated with the hybrid strain Tangerine Dream. Technically, it is a hybrid as it hails from breeding California Orange and Skunk. Despite the Skunk element, it still has a fresh, tangerine aroma and flavor.

The euphoric, uplifted and happy effects produced by this strain help increase inspiration. Browsing social media, strolling through town or even reading may ignite that inspirational spark that’s been missing for a little while.

This strain can reach over 20-percent THC, so it is best to use in smaller doses at first. Too much may leave you feeling a little dizzy or confused.

Super Silver Haze

Super Silver Haze is a strain to be careful with. In larger doses, it can leave you feeling anxious and dizzy. The combination of strains to make this sativa are Haze, Skunk and Northern Lights. You’d think that with the Northern Lights inclusion that it would be a hybrid, but the Skunk and Haze cancel out those indica effects.

Super Silver Haze does produce a long-lasting body high that helps melt stress away while uplifting your spirit.

Pineapple Express

Pineapple Express is a favorite of many – and for many reasons. It’s a very popular strain. This notorious strain comes from breeding Trainwreck and Hawaiian. It’s full of fruit flavor – pineapple, apple and mango, with a little hint of cedar in the background.

One of the main benefits of Pineapple Express is that a little bit goes a very long way. The effects are very long lasting and help with boosting creativity and productivity. Inspiration can be drawn from almost anything mildly stimulating.
