Cannabis impairs creativity, Dutch study finds

A Dutch study has found that smoking weed may actually impair creativity, going against commonly held belief that weed enhances the creative process.

The findings suggest that cannabis with low potency does not have any impact on creativity, while highly potent cannabis actually impairs divergent thinking.

The cannabis used was a sativa, high in THC, which led to lower performance on a task measuring divergent thinking.

However, a lower THC dose led to better performance in the task than the control group.
