Cannabis and Exercise, do they pair? I’d say so! But don’t just take my word for it.

Can you combine cannabis and exercise?

In a study published in the journal “Frontiers in Public Health”, examiners analyzed data from more than 600 cannabis consumers, 80% of whom, supported using cannabis either before or after a workout. So how do these two go hand in hand? We’re all familiar with being in a state of “flow” or being “in the zone”, when all that matters is the task at hand and you’re doing a damn good job at it. Scientifically, this is known as exercise-induced transient hypofrontality.

When you exercise, you’re essentially giving your neurotransmitters a boost, whilst triggering the production of more dopamine. THC also activates the dopamine release system! Aside from that, cb1 receptors play a role in modulating our motor activity, anxiety, and reward mechanisms in our brains. Do you see where I’m going with this? Exercise makes you feel good, and so does cannabis! Consumers using the two together, noticed a decrease in fatigue and increases in focus/motivation.

From personal experience, cannabis use has helped me feel more comfortable than ever in a gym setting. I always used to worry if other gym goers were judging me. There was also many times where I’ve felt a lack of motivation, and a lack of focus during exercise. When I started working out with cannabis, that all changed. Suddenly I found myself in an environment that I felt comfortable in, I completely forgot about other people and their opinions. On days where I struggled to get up and go, a few hits from a motivating strain helped me get over my tiredness. There’s nothing like pairing a good smoke sesh with a good gym routine. Weights feel lighter, and music takes over. It’s all about finding what works for you, what strains make you feel good, and what dosage puts you in that special frame of mind.
