Cannabis & Exercise | What You Should Know
January 15, 2021

When discussing wellness, we often talk about food and exercise, but rarely converse on how adding cannabis might improve our overall performance. Let’s chat about some reasons why you may want to start incorporating marijuana into your daily workout routine. 

It Can Make You Crave Exercising

You know that euphoric feeling you get when you start exercising? The feeling is created by activating your endocannabinoid receptors. These receptors are the reward and dopamine pathways in your brain and are why we start to craving working out. Cannabis can play a part in this activation process and allow your body to crave that lovely euphoric feeling. Who doesn’t want something that aids in your workout and encourages you to continue moving? 

It Can Help Motivate You

Who needs pre-workout when you could just light a joint? According to a study in 2019, it was recorded that 50% of pre-workout users felt consuming cannabis increased their motivation to exercise. 

It Can Help Reduce Pain

Another way in which cannabis can aid in your daily workout routine is by alleviating muscle pain that you may feel after a hardcore workout at the gym. It is definitely no secret that cannabinoids have pain-relieving abilities. We recommend choosing the delivery method of your choice and starting low before a workout for the best results with reducing pain. 

It Can Reduce Inflammation

Along with being a natural pain reliever, cannabis can also help with inflammation that occurs after a workout. We recommend using a topical cannabis product and applying it to the area of discomfort for the best results. Inflammation is something to take seriously during a workout, so keeping your topical product close by is definitely recommended. 

Exercise is great for your overall health, but can be tough on your body. THC & CBD products can help alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and motivate you to continue on your health & wellness journey. Why suffer muscle soreness and joint pain when you could just feel better faster with your medical marijuana?
