Cannabis and Creativity Don't Go Hand-in-Hand
There aren't many people who would claim that drugs and other substances are good for you. Nor would they claim that they could make you more successful in life. However, there is a common belief that marijuana is different from most other drugs. Among these beliefs is that marijuana, or cannabis, can help inspire thoughts and creativity. Research shows that some who frequently use cannabis say that its mind-altering effects – the "high" – are also beneficial. They claim that it helps to relax them, which allows them to approach challenges and obstacles with clarity and calm. However, some may question how much of this theory results from the drug's direct impact and how much of it is perceived. You have likely heard artists such as actors and musicians tout cannabis' benefits, but are they only getting creative with the facts?
