Top 5 Best Autoflowering Strains For Focus

Top 5 Best Autoflowering Strains For Focus

Created: 20.11.2018

For as long as I can remember, cannabis has always been associated with laziness. People are quick to assume and don’t hesitate to spread rumors indicating that it reduces motivation, decreases creativity and blah, blah, blah. Remember the time your friends laughed at you, calling you a lazy stoner no matter how agile or creative you were?

Well, the joke’s on them. Because not only does marijuana increase productivity, but it also motivates you to work harder. This time, even science’s on our side! According to an article on Psychology Today, and many other studies, it has been discovered that marijuana can help relate to unrelated concepts pretty easily, indicating that it increases divergent thinking.

So why do I feel the need to sleep as soon as I smoke, you complain? Well, it’s all in the strain, dear reader. If you consume or smoke a strain like the Blackberry that can paste you to the bed, you can’t really blame cannabis because it’s doing exactly what it’s meant to do. It’s akin to consuming sleeping pills only to later complain that you weren’t intending to sleep!

Here's a quick video showing how to grow medical strains. Remember that it will totally help with insomnia!

Most strains that are Indica-dominant will produce a body buzz that will increase the urge to sleep. And it’s exactly why they are used to cure insomnia too. On the other hand, Sativas are known to increase creativity. Many Sativa strains are also “wake-and-bake” strains that don’t hinder your productivity even if you smoke them the first thing in the morning.

Can Marijuana Increase Motivation?

No matter how much you argue that cannabis actually motivates you, nobody listens. Scientists even name it as the Amotivational Syndrome where your energy levels are completely zapped. But, as a cannabis user, you know that it’s just not true. To understand whether cannabis is really the culprit, you need to study the brain.

Basically, the striatum located in the human brain can throw some light on such questions. It connects your actions to rewards. Just think about the number of times you felt good after great sex or how you squealed in delight after stealing some candies as a kid. That’s dopamine for you. In simple words, the striatum helps you remember the rewards you received when you performed a particular action.

Since it’s established that THC increases the dopamine production in the body, it’s easy to discern how cannabis is indirectly responsible for motivating you. Of course, the levels of dopamine may diminish for long-term users since the body stops producing dopamine when external factors are making up for it. However, dopamine levels will return back to normal if you take a break from cannabis.

In short, cannabis doesn’t reduce motivation or productivity. On the contrary, many users including Seth Rogen state that it boosts their creativity.  So, rather than relying on rumors, stick to your personal experience. Does cannabis make you sleepy? Then it’s time to change the strain. Does it make you groggy? Then choose Sativa strains! As simple as that.

The best way to find an ideal strain that works is to experiment. Try different strains with different levels of THC and your body will guide you to the one that’s simply perfect for you. Here are a few autoflower strains that can help you focus and increase productivity as well.

1) Green Crack Auto

The Green Crack Auto is a beautiful strain that tastes like mangoes. It’s a strain that can be enjoyed just as you wake up in the mornings. Truth be told, it’s like having a mango smoothie blended with magic pills that force you out of your slumber.

The adrenaline rush accompanied with Green Crack is so much that your thoughts might begin to race. That’s why the dosage is key. Sativa strains are meant to kick-start your day but don’t overdo it. It’s like drinking too many cups of Espresso that produce tingling sensations in the body. If you smoke just the right dose, your focus will improve drastically.

Note that strains with high THC can work completely opposite to what you expect if you overdo it. That’s because THC is biphasic, which means that while low doses work miraculously well, higher doses can drive you into a panic.

3) Lemon AK

The Lemon AK boasts of some serious genetics. Originally made by crossing the AK-47 with an autoflower, the Lemon AK is here to please. The AK-47 is famous for its genetics with roots all the way to Mexico, Thailand, Afghanistan, and Columbia, so you can expect the offspring Lemon AK to perform brilliantly as well.

The effects of the Lemon AK aren’t exaggerated. Yes, this strain can make you hyperactive and happy in no time. It’s all due to a terpene called Limonene that elevates your mood and improves focus. Limonene is responsible for the flavor of lemon that you’ve come to love. It also reduces stress and contains a host of antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Lemon AK is like an explosive shot of caffeine sans the jitters. You’ll feel clear headed, talkative and focused on achieving goals. Also ideal for a date with that special someone, Lemon AK will unleash the creative monster in you. A few deep puffs will ignite your thoughts like rockets.

4) Tangie ‘Matic

Again, the terpene profile of the Tangie ‘Matic has something to do with its effects. Tangie ‘Matic tastes like Mandarin Oranges and the terpene responsible is none other than – you guessed it – Limonene. Typically, Limonene is not available in large amounts in cannabis with levels exceeding only 1 to 2 percent, but Sativa strains such as Lemon AK and Tangie ‘Matic boast of higher amounts than regular strains.

The Tangie ‘Matic is particularly helpful if you’re suffering from depression because it has an amazing ability to make you happy. Don’t blame the strain if you suddenly turn into a chatterbox! Tangie Auto, Mandarin Auto or Tangerine Auto – no matter what you call it, this strain will fill you up with so much liveliness that you’ll resemble a Labrador puppy in no time!
