The Next Trend in Fitness

Ingesting Cannabis and working up a heavy sweat aren’t topics you typically find paired together. With the Cannabis industry growing faster than ever patients are looking at new ways to utilize their medicine.

As a long term Cannabis user, I’ve found a way to incorporate it into nearly every aspect of life. I use it as a sleep aid, a natural pain reliever and anti-inflammatory and now, as an energy boost providing crisp focus before a long workout.  Two years ago when my interest in exercise and nutrition began to expand, I worried that my love for Cannabis would interfere with my hopes to work up to running a 5k and eventually half marathon or that it may distract me from staying focused on my goals. At that time, I was not as educated on the plant as I am now and didn’t know how it might affect my new hobby. However, what I learned yet again, was that this wonderful plant had more uses in store for me to discover. It seems like the rest of the world is starting to realize the same as legalization and research efforts grow.

The “runner’s high” many describe is an activation of the same receptors in your brain that Cannabis interacts with. This explains why after understanding how to utilize exercise, so many become avid gym attendees. The same happens with Cannabis. Many users aren’t sure just how helpful it is when we first start, but end up finding a plethora of ways it improves day to day quality of life. So how can Cannabis make work outs better?

Whether you’re looking for a boost at the beginning of a workout or an aid to help you through the aches and pains that come with healing sore muscles, there are a variety of ways Cannabis can help.

Raw Cannabis Juice is a perfect way to start any productive day. A 1-2oz serving provides a crisp energy boost and added mobility. Other benefits include pain relief, inflammation reduction and it even assists with weight loss and hormonal balance.

For those with a tolerance for THC, it can be a great addition to your actual workout. When I wake up extra early, a sativa acts as my “pre-workout” energizer to get my mind and body going. Once I’m ready to go, I transfer that energy into longer strides on a run. It also provides a euphoric boost and as you get into the rhythm of a long run, the effects only improve. The body produces more of its own cannabinoids during exercise and releases stored deposits of THC at simultaneously contributing further to the euphoric benefits received.

Deeper stretches after a good run or on my yoga mat are another place Cannabis and fitness converge. Our CBDream cartridge from Cirrus is a house favorite for yoga practice as it allows for relaxation, opening mind and body, without being over stimulating or sedative.

Cannabis can also help to increase or decrease your appetite depending on the strain selected. Some strains will have you running for the kitchen, others will have you so entranced in an activity the last thing you’re thinking about is shoveling down food. If you’re trying to make major gains, an appetite stimulant like Blue Haze or Pineapple Express would be a good choice. If you’re hoping to avoid the kitchen a THCV+CBD Medi Cone can help to suppress appetite while maintaining a focused, calm demeanor.

Rest is also an enormous part of both gaining mass and recovery. For those of us with active imaginations or sore restless legs, sleep can be a real challenge. Having an Indica to reach for in the evenings is the perfect way to get rest without feeling weighed down for your workouts the next day.

For those looking to improve their health without the help of chemicals or steroids, Cannabis could be a wonderful supplement, analgesic and anti-inflammatory. It should be noted that it is crucial to find your optimal dose and product type to have consistent experiences. With a little trial and error coupled with proper guidance most of us can achieve this rather easily.
