The influence of cannabis on creativity has been discussed in detail on our Sensi Seeds blog. The relationship of the two is well-known, but also very complex.
There are creative people out there that use cannabis, and there are those that don’t. Today, we have collected 10 quotes of musicians, authors, entrepreneurs and philosophers that value cannabis for its creativity producing or rather creativity enhancing properties. Take a look for yourself.
“As an artist, there’s a sweet jump-starting quality to [marijuana] for me. I’ve often felt telepathic and receptive to inexplicable messages my whole life. I can stave those off when I’m not high. When I’m high – well, they come in and there’s less of a veil, so to speak. So if ever I need some clarity… or a quantum leap in terms of writing something, it’s a quick way for me to get to it.”
“The best way I would describe the effect of the marijuana and the hashish is that it would make me relaxed and creative.”
“Marijuana can be like a loving partner to your creativity; a muse and inspiration and a help in many ways.”
“I smoke a lot of pot when I write music.”
“Marijuana is a cognitive catalyst that can trigger heightened free-associative creativity, increased pattern recognition, and insight.”
“Music and herb go together. It’s been a long time now I smoke herb. From 1960s, when I first start singing.”
“See, I think drugs have done some *good* things for us, I really do. And if you don’t believe drugs have done good things for us, do me a Favor: go home tonight and take all your albums, all your tapes, and all your CDs and burn ‘em. ‘Cause you know what? The musicians who made all that great music that’s enhanced your lives throughout the years… Rrrrrrrrrrrrreal —— high on drugs.”
“I smoked some weed, and that’s how I finished ‘Izzo.'”
“Marijuana excites vocalization and empowers articulation. It transmutes language into something that is visibly beheld.”
“Some people are just better high.”
