231017: PERFORMANCE: Does Smoking Week Enhance Fitness

THERE ARE ROAD races where you’re encouraged to run high, and gyms dedicated to working out stoned. But what actually happens if you smoke weed and then run—or jump, or lift?

“How marijuana affects your workout or performance depends largely on the type of exercise and goal at hand,” says Jordan Tishler, M.D., a Harvard-trained internist and leading cannabis therapeutics specialist.

And to be clear: There isn’t much hard scientific research on marijuana and exercise. One of the few studies we have, published recently in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport, reports that weed degrades peak performance. Researchers only looked at it qualitatively, so we don’t know how much of an effect smoking weed would have on your workout, Tishler points out. But for a race, competition, or even deadlift PR, you want to be at your best—so as best we know, skip the spliff.

I personally Do not recommend Smoking Marijuana for Fitness or Performance reasons unless it is for a Health orientated reason like anxiety, cancer etc. Then again I think a lot of people with Mental Health issues need to speak out more. Share and speak with family, friends and their mentors/ trainers.
