10 Best Cannabis Strains To Work From Home

Anyone who has ever tried to stay focused on work for a long time in a place that was always associated with rest, fun, and family knows that working from home can be hell.

Currently, people all around the globe are working from home. And yes, this might be a problem, especially if you have never really thought about finding a remote job.

Freelance developers, marketers, designers, and SMM managers note that nothing has dramatically changed for them. But if you’re not used to working from home and face (or have already faced) certain difficulties in concentrating, being creative and productive, and keeping up with your workload, here are some effective strains when it comes to remote work.

THC-dominant, CBD-dominant Or Balanced Strains?

Firstly, we should emphasize that cannabis affects the bodies and minds of different people in different ways. They, in turn, depend on plenty of factors, from your age and body type to your consumer experience and, of course, the strain you choose. We will not lie – if you want to find a perfect strain to be 100% productive when working at home, you will need to experiment with different options to find the one with perfect effects. Our goal is to help you narrow the search.

Generally speaking, there are three main categories of strains:

  • CBD-dominant. Strains with the high concentration of cannabidiol are just perfect for everyone who does not really care about the feeling of euphoria but looks for something that will keep him calm, concentrated and productive.
  • THC-dominant. Strains with a high concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol affect people’s minds in different ways. For some people, such strains are the perfect “dope” because it keeps them focused on work, while the others note that it does not help them at all – on the contrary, it distracts them from work. Still, this does not mean that you should forget about the idea to use cannabis for focusing on your work. Just try another strain or reduce the dose.
  • Balanced. If you are searching for a strain that can get mild high and activate the cerebral functions.
