Cannabis & Workouts: How To Do It Safely
The impact of legalizing marijuana has had far-reaching implications, from attracting a more diverse user base to producing a wider variety of products. It has also started a growing “weed and workout” following.
Many people refer to their weed training as invigorating and joyful, which goes against the harmful and ubiquitous lazy stoner stereotype. Cannabis has always been pretty malleable. Once you know how to use it, you can add it to pretty much any activity and get positive results. However, when you are ingesting any substance, it is very important to prioritize your health and wellbeing.
Here are some tips that can make your weed training safer and just as efficient:

Whether you are a seasoned bodybuilder or a seasoned cannabis user, it is important to start slowly when combining the two activities for the first time. You don’t want to be crazy about training; The sweet spot is a little less than a nice high, a lot of THC that is invigorating to the touch and allows focus but doesn’t cloud your mind.
Smoke less than normal and exercise to monitor your experience. If necessary, increase the dose.

The method of consumption is just as important as the dosage. For the first time, stick to a method that you’ve tried before and that you know how to manage. While many people are experts at their food, timing is very important when it comes to training. Ideally, you want something that works quickly. This way you can peak during exercise and reflect your performance.

This is also entirely up to you and the highs you have in general. If you run regularly, try weeds. If you practice something else, try that too. In general, it is best to combine weed with exercise that is kind of pointless and allows you to focus on exercise. Walks, easy hikes, spinning or treadmill workouts are ideal as your mind will focus and you will likely train much harder than you are used to.
