Enchanted Weed Forest
Leave reality behind as you step into the Enchanted Weed Forest…
Created by female artist, Shannon Barber, this immersive art installation transports you into the middle an entrancing fluorescent forest in the middle of the night.
Listen to the sound of spellbinding woodland creatures in the distance as you take in the sight of glowing neon trees, magical mushrooms, and twinkling stars up above.
Marijuana and Creativity
Creativity is the use of one’s imagination and original ideas in association to the frontal lobe of the human brain. When smoking cannabis it increases cerebral blood flow to this area making it more active when performing creative tasks.
Not only does smoking weed increase creativity it also stimulates the “creative divergent thinking” located in the frontal lobe. This thinking is used when brainstorming, free writing, and creative thinking. Adding cerebral blood flow can improve possible solutions to problems and open your mind in different directions.
