Working Out with Weed – What to Know

We have many customers that enjoy working out with cannabis. But what cannabis product is right for you? We have detailed what you should know about working out with weed below. Continue reading about the benefits of working out with weed and our tips for optimizing your workouts with a cannabis product from Strains Dispensary Perris, CA.

Working Out with Weed Benefits

The relationship between working out and cannabis consumption seems to be counter-intuitive: How could cannabis known for couch-lock effects and stereotypical laziness possibly promote better workouts? Rest assured that many workout enthusiasts have already realized what scientists have reported in recent scholarly studies about how cannabinoids help with working out: 

  • Suppresses inflammatory cytokines to reduce next-day soreness 
  • Enhances the positive feedback loop to improve workout motivation 
  • Jumpstarts & enhances workout euphoria often called “runner’s high” 
  • Makes working out more enjoyable

Working Out with Weed Tips

Those that experience benefits when working out with weed consume strategically for the best results. By following these strategic tips, you might also experience the benefits while preventing the consequences of working out with cannabis the wrong way.

The Right Strain

Working out with cannabis will almost always include a Sativa-dominant strain due to the uplifting, energetic, non-couch-lock effects. You want to avoid working out while sedated by a strong Indica strain. Jack Herer, Wedding Cake, and Pineapple Express are perfect strains for working out.

The Right Dose

Any strain at a high enough dose can lead to a lack of motivation and sedation that make for bad workout results. Although this takes knowing your workout and tolerance requirements, it is always best to start with a lower dose and find your sweet spot without overdoing it. You’ll know the ideal dose when you maximize benefits while limiting sedation and lack of motivation.

The Right Product

Getting the right strain at the right dose leads us to the right product. Vape pens are an excellent option because they offer accurate dose titration, rapid onset, and discrete consumption. Topicals such as those from High Gorgeous by Yummi Karma might interest you for post-workout inflammation and muscle soreness.
