Incorporating Medical Marijuana in Health & Fitness


The stereotype that cannabis is for lazy young people who do nothing but smoke and watch tv is OUT. As medical marijuana becomes more accessible nationwide, it is becoming a part of everyday life for many people.


Mental and physical health have become increasingly important to people over the past few decades, and rightly so. Your mental and physical health impact every aspect of your life.


Not only is it important to get adequate exercise, but rest is just as important. Taking care of your mind is just as important as taking care of your body, and marijuana can help you take care of both. Exercise, rest, sleep, and pain are just some of the things that the addition of marijuana can help with.


Exercise

To some, marijuana and exercise may not seem to go together, but for others, marijuana is exactly what they need to enhance their work out and feel better after.


Cannabis can actually increase the effect of your natural endorphins, which means you may have more pleasurable work outs. This is great because it provides a boost of energy and makes you think positively about exercise.


Many athletes also use cannabis for after their workout. Any athlete will tell you that rest is crucial for your muscles after a good workout, and marijuana can help with that as well.


During your workout, you are actually damaging your muscles and rest is needed to repair them. Cannabis can help you relax and rest after exercise, ensuring proper rest for your body and muscles.


Meditation

Meditation has also been increasing in popularity lately, and for good reason. Meditation is an excellent way to relax and de-stress. During meditation, you are supposed to let all of your thoughts go and think about nothing at all.


Some people say that marijuana helps their brain enter a deeper state of relaxation and recommend marijuana for those who wish to try meditation. Try an indica strain for best results!


Diet

If you are looking for ways to incorporate marijuana into your everyday life, consider adding it to your diet! Many people think of sweets like brownies or cookies when they think of marijuana edibles, but the truth is that you can add THC to anything you can eat!


Any recipe could benefit from some cannabis butter or oil, and you can add avocado oil to cancel out the taste! People usually like either cannabutter or cannabis-infused olive oil, which you can even make yourself!
