With a quick glance, one would assume that lifting weights and cannabis is a recipe for disaster. We all think "cannabis makes me too relaxed or impaired to exercise or lift weights." Smoking cannabis can actually have an opposite effect. Cannabis increases blood flow, reduces inflammation, and improve muscle/mind connection. These three components are a recipe for success for lifting weights or any other sort of physical exercise. Keep your dose low and enjoy the heightened awareness and flow state that can be achieved with cannabis and weight lifting. Many report feeling every fiber of their muscles contracting while performing exercise. Sativa strains are perfect for the gym with their uplifting effects, and can be the ultimate pre workout and make most pre workout supplements obsolete!
