“The best way I would describe the effect of the marijuana and the hashish is that it would make me relaxed and creative.” – Steve Jobs
As cannabis enthusiasts, we’ve generally all found deeper meaning in music, art, or creativity in its many forms while high. Indeed, it can often feel like you’ve unlocked the secrets of the universe when making or creating something when you’re high.
Research suggests that cannabis blurs the lines between a person’s five senses, allowing for an increased capacity for wonder and awe. It enhances your ability to marvel at things, somehow allowing you to experience in a profound, internal way.
There’s scientific evidence to prove that marijuana causes your brain to release the neurochemical called dopamine, which gives users the signature calm, euphoric feeling you get when you’re high. It also helps reduce your inhibitions and turn off your “inner-editor” while writing, drawing, or brainstorming. People high on marijuana often describe their thoughts and feelings as moving more freely, almost flowing through them.
