Most heavy strains can get you through chronic pain or treatment-related nausea. But, at the same time, you don't want that complex high if you're just using weed as a tool to develop concentration.
For that reason, we have compiled a list of the best weed strains for studying or creating focus, including if you have a condition like ADHD or ADD.

Even if you have not been diagnosed with ADHD or ADD and just need some help with studying for an exam or managing anxiety, we've got you covered.

How to find the perfect cannabis strain for concentration

If you have consumed cannabis already, you must know that while certain varieties help you stay focused and increase productivity, others can make you lose focus and 'trip out'.
Finding a strain that gives you the right amount of focus means making a lot of trial and error. This means that the strains mentioned in this article may not affect everyone the same way.
However, you can use this list as a starting point for finding the best weed strain for developing creativity and centered thoughts.

NOTE: The strains are ranked in no particular order, choose what you want!

What kind of focus do you want from your weed?


  • CBD Dominant Strain- these strains will have only trace amounts of THC and will not produce a euphoric high with little to no side effects.

  • THC Dominant Strain- these strains are suitable for producing euphoria, which can help with focus for some and might be diverting for others. If a THC strain makes your mind overstimulated, you might want to try to switch up the strain or try a smaller dose.

  • Balanced THC/CBD Strains- they are known to provide a mild high and might just be a good choice for someone who is looking for just a little cerebral activation.

    Here is the list of the best strains of weed for enhancing focus and creativity
