Incorporating Medical Marijuana Into Your Health & Fitness Lifestyle
In order to maintain good health, exercise and a healthy diet are essential. When it comes to your daily health regimen, including medical marijuana could alleviate many different problems and ease pain which will allow you to seize the day.
The stereotype that marijuana users are lazy people who do nothing but sit around and get high is slowly dying off. People are starting to accept marijuana as a medicine universally, so the attitudes and beliefs about it are changing.
Marijuana can be very beneficial to a person’s sleep schedule, work outs, meditation, and more. Sleeping, exercise, and meditation are all important aspects for a person’s health and well being.
Marijuana and Working Out
Although these two things may sound like an oxymoron, marijuana can actually compliment your work out! Resting your muscles and getting good sleep are both very critical for after-workout care.
After your workout, marijuana may allow you to give your muscles the proper rest they crave. Cannabis is also widely known as a sleeping aid, and it can help people fall asleep, stay asleep longer, and get better quality sleep!
Whether marijuana will help you during your work out depends on your body, as cannabis affects everyone differently. Many athletes use marijuana to focus better and get in the zone. If you want to try marijuana before you exercise, try a sativa strain.
Meditation and Cannabis
Taking care of your mental wellbeing is extremely important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In recent years, much more emphasis has been placed on mental health, and rightly so. Our mental health directly impacts everything about us from behavior to relationships.
Meditation is an excellent way to focus and calm your mind. During meditation, it is important to let go of all your thoughts and worries, and marijuana can help with this. Using cannabis may even allow your mind to fall into a deeper, more relaxed state during meditation.
Ever heard of a “runner’s high”? Most people believe that this comes from an endorphin release, but new studies suggest that it comes from endogenous cannabinoids, which are produced naturally in the brain.
When a person ingests THC or CBD before a run, they may get a head start on the feeling of “runner’s high”, allowing them to reach their full potential.
If cannabis makes you feel sluggish, maybe try it after your morning jog or midday run. Many athletes report that they feel less joint pain and maintain a clearer mind with marijuana use.
