A few weeks ago, we reviewed cannabis strains to help you ease into the new and scary reality that was lockdown.

But now that many of us have grown accustomed to this new normal, we’re hearing from folks that being hunkered down at home for so long is is killing the motivation needed to pull out the laptop and get to work.

Apparently, Netflix is more enticing.

So even though you may still have some of that calming weed, now may be time to shift to cannabis strains for motivation.

Let’s take a look at those that place in the top 8 slots.

  1. Cinex

We all get that feeling that we’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. It might be happening a lot more frequently these days than we like.

Cinex is a sativa hybrid that’s well known for it’s ability to elevate energy and stabilize mood. So melt away that early morning heaviness with this strain.

  1. Green Crack

This strain that was created on the east coast was once known as Cush. Now it’s more of a west coast strain that’s taken on the moniker Green Crack.

If you’re looking for a kick in the butt that will shoot a buzz all the way from there to your brain, Green Crack is your strain.

This high potency strain will leave you happy, energetic, and ready to take on what’s next. Plus, it smells of mangoes.

  1. Chocolope

Chocolope is a lot less likely to scream in your ear like Green Crack and serves instead as the perfect wake and bake strain.

It possesses aromas remarkably similar to chocolate and coffee and gives you a smooth high. Behind that smoothness though is just enough energy to ease away your stress and get you up and running.

  1. Jack Herer

Jack Herer was a well-known cannabis activist and famous grower. This sativa dominant hybrid was named in homage to him.

This strain can be enjoyed in the mornings to provide an immediate uplifting high, without the anxiety or paranoia that can sometimes creep up in sativa heavy strains.

The effect of this strain can be more clearly described as blissful, clear-headed, and creative.

  1. Durban Poison

Durban Poison is often referred to as the espresso of cannabis.

This South African strain is 100% sativa and contains high levels of the energizing cannabinoid THCV. In other words, it delivers a real punch.

So you may want to take that into consideration depending on the sort of work you have to do. Tackling a project, maybe. Leading a Zoom meeting, maybe not.

  1. CBD Mango Haze

This strain has a completely different profile from Durban Poison.

Bred to have an even content of CBD and THC, it offers medicinal benefits while counteracting the sleepy effects of THC.

Although CBD is also used for relaxation, CBD Mango Haze will wake you up and get your brain moving.

In fact, it’s downright ideal for when you need that cerebral motivational buzz.

  1. Super Silver Haze

This strain has won all sorts of awards and is a favorite among medical and recreational users alike.

Super Silver Haze is a terribly dynamic sativa blend strain with a sweet skunk smell that blends with floral haze.

It has a strong and spicy flavor and its energetic effect is long-lasting and has true staying power.

  1. Sour Diesel

Known by its street name Sour D, this is a popular sativa dominant hybrid strain.

It was named for its diesel like aroma. And while this may not sound inviting, there are also hints of lemon to balance it.

Sour Diesel will jumpstart your brain by delivering energizing cerebral effects right off the bat.

It’s also good for stress and depression – in case you’re sad that you already finished binge-watching all your favorite series.
