What’s the Secret to Productive Creativity?
Most recognize marijuana (cannabis) for its euphoria-inducing qualities, yet what happens when you take the “euphoric high” out of marijuana use? You’re left with a non-psychedelic feel-good focus that enhances creativity.
CBD Promotes Creativity
CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are the most common cannabinoids found in cannabis products. THC is the component that contributes to that euphoric high we mentioned earlier. Remove the THC and your cannabis products are now mainly composed of CBD. CBD is the component that recent studies have shown creates a boost in productive creativity.
How Does This Work?
Creatives experience a state of ‘creative flow’ when dopamine, serotonin, endorphins, and other naturally occurring chemicals interact with the brain and produce a ‘natural high’ (HealthEuropa.eu). Using CBD leads to an increase in these chemicals, enhancing one’s focus and productivity throughout their creative processes.
CBD gummies and other CBD-infused products interact with the endocannabinoid receptors in the brain and neural system. The interaction promotes the ability to feel inspired, brainstorm creative ideas, remain focused, be productive, and feel good about it all.
Creativity With CBD Gummies?
At Feel Good Edibles, we take advantage of CBD’s qualities by adding the cannabinoid into all of our products. Our gummies are infused with CBD, allowing for ingestible access to that feel-good creative flow that most of us crave. How does our Feel Good Edibles team use CBD gummies to enhance our creative focus? Here are a few quotes from the squad:
“I’m an artist (portraitist). I also have a ton of responsibilities to balance on a daily basis being a mother and working. Many times, my obligations create a level of stress that takes away my ability to focus on my creative side. CBD gummies allow me to relax and compartmentalize my duties so I can make the space to express myself artistically.”
–Devin Riley, Lead Marketing Strategist
“Adding CBD into my creative process has allowed me to clear the cobwebs and focus in. The days that personal stress is getting in my way, CBD helps.”
–Alaina Albertson, Social Media Manager
“In my high school days, I would definitely fall under ‘the artsy stoner’ archetype. My lifestyle involved a ton of journaling and scribbling, but also a lot of naps. Now, as I proceed with my professional career I use CBD gummies to maintain my creativity and that feel-good feeling, without the naps and fuzziness of THC. My process as a creative marketer has definitely improved.”
–Maven Nzeutem, Marketing Intern
At Feel Good Edibles, we’re a team of creatives that embrace how CBD usage enhances our innate creativity.
What does this all mean for you?
Whether you’re a creative or not, CBD might be what’s missing from your feel-good flow. When you need to hone in and come up with an innovative idea, ditch the stress and consider CBD. Creativity doesn’t have to be up in the clouds, it can be a grounded and productive process.
