We all sometimes want to be the person who can get out of bed early and go for a morning run. We can face a long and hard day after a successful morning run. However, it could be so complicated to get out of bed. Why do you not try to add a little cannabis? You can believe it or not, but some strains are perfect for energy. So you can try it and then observe the results.
Usually, there are two kinds of people. They are people who like waking up early and everybody else. For people who do not like early mornings, waking up too early requires a lot of commitment, determination, and a loud alarm clock. Especially when the alarm tells you it is time to go for a morning run. However, there is good news for people who do not like early mornings. The right strain can make early mornings much more pleasant than they used to be.
Some cannabis strains can energize, stimulate, and lead to supporting muscle recovery. Of course, you should not use too much cannabis before running. It is not a good idea. You should also choose the right strain because some of them are too heavy to go for a run after them, like the Garanimals weed strain.
Today we know a lot about marijuana, but still, there is a long road ahead to reveal all the mysteries of this plant. Due to the federal restrictions, we still have to do more research to learn all the effects of cannabis.
Even though the link between cannabis and workouts isn’t clear yet, some studies have found some positive effects. For example, there was a study from the University of Colorado Boulder found that cannabis users have a lower prevalence of obesity. There were 600 participants, and 4 out of 5 used marijuana before exercise. Another interesting fact is that 70% of participants found workouts more enjoyable.
There is a theory that workouts could be more enjoyable because you can push through the pain more easily or find pleasure in repetitive exercises like running. Another version is that the feeling of runners’ high originates within the endocannabinoid system. This system reacts to the cannabinoids that you receive from weed. The main idea is when you add cannabis, you might make this system work. However, we still need more studies to know more about it.
