With cannabis, you can choose what benefits you want to help you with your entire workout. Are you planning a long, hard workout, or a more informal session? There’s a strain to help you through both. Are you training for a specific event or are you trying to avoid being a total couch potato? There are strains to help with both of these also!
For many runners, and other athletes, there are the pre-race jitters. The right strain of cannabis before a race can help you to relax and focus on the race or event. If you are suffering from sports injuries such as tennis elbow, an Achilles injury, or back spasms cannabis can help relieve the pain, reduce the swelling, and relax the muscles.
Creams, tinctures, and massage oils can be used topically to relieve symptoms quickly and effectively. Ingesting cannabis oils, teas, or in food and drinks, or inhaling as smoke or vapor can give you the overall feeling you desire, whether that be more relaxed or more energized.
