Increase Productivity with These Cannabis Products and Strains
As we ease into the new year, goals are still being set, for a variety of facets of life. A common aspiration is boosting productivity. Amid various tactics and resources available, one surprising potential helper is cannabis. That's right, forget the lazy stoner archetype and make way for the productive sesher.
In a study published in 2016 (appropriately titled "Splendor in the Grass?"), researchers examined the effects of the plant on executive function. The study assessed how three months of medical marijuana impacted executive function and found that the participants had some improvement in executive functioning tasks, "mostly reflected as increased speed in completing tasks without a loss of accuracy." And, using survey responses, researchers found cannabis had no impact on productivity compared to non-cannabis users.
Although there isn't extensive clinical research backing cannabis for productivity, countless anecdotal evidence suggests the benefit. Reviews of various cannabis products, including edibles, smokables, and vapables, frequently mention enhanced energy, motivation, and creativity.
For those exploring fresh methods to elevate their productivity in 2024, cannabis might provide the additional boost you're seeking.
We dug into the reviews to identify the highest-rated products and strains for enhancing energy and productivity. Keep in mind, while many have experienced positive results, the effects of cannabis can vary from person to person. For a tailored experience, we recommend consulting with your Cannabis Advisor to determine the most suitable options for your individual needs.
Cannabis Strains for Motivation and Productivity
Diamonds might be a girl's best friend, but cannabis flower is a patient's. Full-spectrum benefits, the truest synergy of the plant, bud is the purest way to experience the effects of marijuana strains. Some MÜVer favorites for motivation and productivity include:
A blizzard of uplifting effects, Minty Blizzard is the strain missing from your daytime routine. A frosty cross of Amnesia Haze with The Menthol, the sativa brings intense flavors of pine and mint, particularly on exhale, with a pleasant head high and a spark of creativity.
A minty-tasting, uplifting sativa flower. Great way to start the day.
- Reviewer p****0, who added it's great for mind stimulation, getting active and creative, and energizing
Mintshake blends relaxation and stimulation to meet you where you need to go. A creamy cross of Wedding Cakes and Kush Mints, this hybrid brings intense flavor with notes of gas on inhale, mint on exhale, underscored by the aroma of rich earth.
This is by [far] the strongest strain I have tried. Cleaned and re-organized my garage the first day I smoked this. Highly recommend.

There's no mistaking the scent of Strawberry Cough—sweet, sweet strawberry with an earthy finish. This true sativa is a stimulating cross of Haze and Strawberry Fields. While many choose Strawberry Cough for its flavor, they come back for its effects: an uplifting euphoria that gently fades feelings of stress and depression.
Don’t know why, but I am super productive and focused on this stuff. I know it’s sativa but I mean really. I command and multitask. Multitasking is usually impossible. So yeah. Thumbs up.

Marijuana Vapes for Productivity and Motivation
For convenience and potency, vapes reign supreme. The inhalation option is preferred by many for its low odor and quick effects, not to mention its portability. When it comes to a quick boost of productivity and energy, vapes are a great option – take a look at MÜVer favorites:
Plus Apple Juice
Apple Juice is an uplifting cultivar exclusively phenohunted for its appearance and benefits. The hybrid strain is dense and sticky, with sweet notes and underlying hints of fruit and earth. Apple Juice lends cerebral, euphoric effects that patients say lead to enhanced productivity and motivation.
Very interesting strain. My concentration and patience were enhanced! It is a wake and bake strain. It’s not a body rush, my arthritic hand didn’t hurt so it handled pain w/o making me goofy. I will buy again!

Savvy Happy Hour Juicy Mango
Lifted spirits, without the spirits. Happy Hour Juicy Mango is an explosion of fruit flavor, bundled in a satisfyingly large-and-in-charge 1g cartridge. And its effects, according to patients? Energizing, stimulating, great for getting active and for boosting creativity.
The flavor is sweet and delightful. Excellent for getting things done, while putting a smile on your face.

The Essence Jack Herer
The classic sativa. There's no go-getter strain like Jack Herer, named for the Emperor of Hemp himself who advocated for cannabis legalization tirelessly. Deep notes of rich pine are prominent in this strain, with notes of spice. A favorite of MÜVers for getting active, energy, mind stimulation, and creativity, this strain is sure to be top of your preferred daytime options.
For me, it simultaneously relaxes and motivates. I'm focused, but not anxious, and it makes it easier for me to get on, and stay on task - but also chill. So, yeah, I'll definitely be getting more of this.

Cannabis Edibles for Motivation and Productivity
The THC-isolate, same effects no matter what edible you eat days are in the past. Today's cannabis edibles are infused with strain-specific oils, or enhanced with proprietary terpene blends, to create enhancing, targeted effects – yes, even for motivation and productivity. Here are some patient favorites:
Bits Guava Soft Chews
Bits Guava gets patients going. The low-dose, high-function edible is a microdose option formulated to enhance everyday moments and tasks, not overtake or overwhelm. 5mg THC and bright guava flavor compound to what patients review as energizing, mind-stimulating, and blissful benefits.
I take edibles for three things: anxiety, migraines, and /or to get a nice buzz. I often get couch lock, which I know so I plan for it, but had been thinking how nice it would be if i could find something to take the edge off my anxiety and migraines but still leave me feeling motivated enough to get some creative projects done. This is my answer. One gets me just barely buzzed and makes my creative juices flow, and two gives me a healthy buzz without couchlock. Love it!

Encore Mango Sativa RSO Soft Chews
Encore RSO Soft Chews are the easiest way to dose RSO. Each edible is strain-specific, identified on the label, and provides full-spectrum benefits due to its inclusion, in particular, of flavonoids. The juicy mango flavor helps to tone down the earthy, kushy flavor of RSO in each 10mg soft chew, which can be easily split into two 5mg doses.
Each sativa strain can provide varying effects due to the nuances of the plant, but overall, patients agree they help will both nominal, day-to-day tasks and creativity:
My booster. I get work done and am so much more creative. Smoothest by far.

MÜV Watermelon Sativa Soft Chews
A delightful edible option crafted with flavor, texture, and effects in mind, MÜV Watermelon Sativa Soft Chews are the ultimate daytime option. Infused with an uplifting terpene blend and refreshing, juicy watermelon flavor, these 10mg edibles are patient-favorites for an energy boost.
I have ADHD and this sativa does something good for that. It has lead me to have a productive week even though I have a good amount of high stress situations in my life. So I would say it helped me mostly with anxiety, mood and productivity.
