7 Cannabis Strains That Are Effective for Creating Music
words: Dante Jordan

Weed can be one of the most creative tools in the world. That blissful euphoria we feel after getting high often opens our minds in ways that make the impossible tangible. It can be the cure for creative blocks; it can be the remedy for procrastination. This is why so many musicians, and really artists of every kind, smoke weed.

In choosing creative weed strains, there are thousands of options; and oftentimes it can be tough to know which ones to smoke when you want to make that song; shoot that photo; or paint that portrait. But luckily for you, all I do is smoke weed and write, so I have a pretty good bank of suggestions ready to go.

With all cannabis strains and products, it’s important to remember that all weed affects every consumer differently. What might make you feel creative may make someone else feel sleepy, and vice versa. To know for sure which strains are the most creative for you, you’ll have to do the work of trial-and-error. That said, here are a quick 7 weed strains that are great for creativity.


Cinex is one of the most clear-headed cannabis strains I’ve come across. It’s a light high that somehow eases the tension in my shoulders and makes anything I’m stressing about disappear. Additionally, it can also help with a boost in morale that could be the creative spark you’re looking for.

Cinex is a citrus-flavored sativa-dominant cross of the Vortex and Cinderella 99 strains. It’s THC-dominant, but often falls into the average range of 13-17%, so the experience is light and manageable for any level of consumer. Cinex has light green buds that produce a citrus and earthy terpene profile that makes for a smooth and easy smoke.

White Fire OG

White Fire OG, also called WiFi, is another cannabis strain that’s great for clear-headed focus on creative tasks. It often leaves consumers feeling relaxed and happy, which is great for writing that next 16, and recording that next greatest song of all time.

WiFi OG is a hybrid cannabis strain that was bred by crossing the sativa Fire OG and the indica The White. The way it smells and tastes can vary by grower, but many people expect a floral terpene profile with a thick smoke from the thick layer of trichomes that coat the plant. Though potent, the high leaves you in a middle-of-the-road daze that many people describe as uplifting and euphoric.

Durban Poison

Anyone that has smoked Durban Poison will tell you that it is one of their favorite weed strains ever. Even just typing it has me looking for it on my local dispensary menus. Durban Poison one of those strains that you can smoke and zone out to music for hours; or smoke and zone into any creative task on your to-do list.

Durban Poison is an African landrace sativa from South Africa. It is famous for having green buds that are absolutely coated in sticky resin, and produce a sweet and earthy terpene profile that will please any weed connoisseur. Durban’s high is lauded for its uplifting ability to turn any frown upside down, while also being potent enough to smoke you into a nap if consumed in excessive doses.

Golden Goat

Golden Goat is another strain that is lauded for its uplifting and creative effects. It’s an old school sativa-dominant hybrid bred by crossing a Hawaiian plant with. Sweet Island Skunk. Golden Goat is named after its golden-hued buds that produce a complex mix of flavors that many call sweet, spicy, and floral. Oftentimes the effects leave consumers feeling happy and uplifted, so even if you aren’t creating music, maybe you still buy this one for the rainy days.

Lamb’s Breath

You can’t talk about creative strains without mentioning the one that legend holds as Bob Marley’s favorite weed strain. If you came here looking for a strain to pair with reggae music, look no further.

Lamb’s Breath is a sativa cannabis plant from Jamaica that many report to be happy and energetic. It goes by many aliases, including Lamb’s Bread, Lambsbreath, Lambsbread, etc. With it being such a scarce plant, it’s hard to pinpoint exact aromas and flavors with this one.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake is the perfect strain to smoke when you’ve made it halfway through the day and you’re looking for something potent, but not sleepy, to kick your productivity back up to the Time To Get Shit Done levels from morning. I smoke it every day around 1pm and it’s an instant morale booster.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake is a sativa-dominant hybrid bred by crossing Pineapple Trainwreck with Cookie Monster. With Trainwreck and Cookies genetics at play, the high is potent and long-lasting, but not necessarily sleepy, unless you smoke too many blunts of it in one sitting. The terpene profile features a sweet, tropical aroma with a spicy smoke.

OG Kush

Rappers love OG Kush. Really, everyone loves OG Kush, but it’s especially true in the hip community where the loudest, most potently euphoric cannabis strains are most championed. OG Kush, Girl Scout Cookies, and Wedding Cake are the proof.

OG Kush is a California legend whose true genetics are only known by its breeders. We do, however, know that high that hits you with a potent cerebral energy that can really get you thinking. It can also get you to create when you turn those thoughts into action. OG Kush is known for its citrus, earthy, sour, and somewhat gassy terpene profile.
