How many of ya’ll out there blaze it up before hitting the gym? My people. Hell, maybe your a little less initiated and you dabble in using cannabis edibles or topicals as your post workout routine for relief. Wherever you fall on our little spectrum, you my friends, are the latest trend.
According to results from a research survey published by Frontiers in Public Health, cannabis use and fitness is on the rise in legal states.
605 people took the survey. The survey targeted people 21 years and older in recreational marijuana states who had liked some sort of cannabis page via facebook. In the full sample, 494 participants (81.7%) endorsed using cannabis before and/or after exercise and 111 (18.3%) did not.
I had the chance to chit chat with a couple that frequents our store as well as our very own Tacoma Center YMCA. For anonymity sake we’ll call them Jay and Nay.
“When I smoke before playing basketball it puts me in a different zone, I get more focused in on the game and have more fun.” Jay said.
“I like to smoke sativa before going to the gym normally, but lately I’ve been on a fruit chew kick,” said Nay. “It seems like it helps so I can lift more and ride the spin bikes longer.”
Nay says that she prefers our Ceres brand Fruit Chews to some other types of edibles on the market. They don’t leave a bad taste in her mouth or make her more thirsty, so its a good product to use before the gym.
For all of those post workout aches and pains without the consumption Ceres has some of the most desirable products on the market available for topicals. The Dragon Balm by Ceres is easily our most popular topical product on the shelf. And you can get it out the door for $15.
I always compare Dragon Balm to the famous Tiger Balm in smell and consistency. Pro-Tip, its better, cause its jam packed with cannabis! Dragon Balm has a broad spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes as well as camphor oil and menthol essential oils. As i stated last week, different ratio’s of cannabinoids can be more beneficial for various ailments, and everyone is different so its always helpful to come in and explain what you’re looking for to our staff. Dragon Balm has 175mg THC, 175 mg CBD, and 20 mg CBN.
Topicals such as this will only provide relief and never a psychoactive effect. So don’t you worry you wont get high from this stuff.
Whether you are using marijuana to push your personal limits at the gym, or to cope with the healing and relief process. We pride ourselves at The House of Cannabis in carrying a product to fit every one of your cannabis needs, so come on down and chat it up with our knowledgeable staff and we’ll get you stocked for your next workout session.
