How Does Cannabis Aid Athletic Recovery?

Cannabis isn’t just for recreational use. There’s a reason more and more states are legalizing this plant for medicinal purposes. The therapeutic benefits that come from using cannabis are quite impressive, and people are choosing to ditch the pharmaceuticals in favor of this all-natural healing remedy. Cannabis has become particularly popular among athletes, which may sound surprising to some. Cannabis used to have a negative stigma among the athletic community, so what is the reason behind this change of heart?

It turns out, our bodies are perfectly set up to metabolize this amazing plant. When cannabis enters our systems, the molecules attach to cannabinoid receptors within our bodies. Once activated, these receptors send signals to the surrounding muscles to loosen up and relax. This is what explains that body high sensation that many cannabis users are drawn to. Many athletes have discovered that they can benefit from this type of muscle relaxation as well. 

Giving your muscles an opportunity to relax after working out is critical for recovery. It helps you feel better more quickly so you can maintain a consistent exercise routine. Sore muscles can prevent you from achieving your optimal performance, and giving your muscles a chance to calm down after exercising allows your body to have a healthy and safe recovery. 

We are living in a time of enlightenment and new perspectives, and it’s time to leave behind the negative stigma attached to cannabis generations ago. The powerful recovery properties of cannabis can offer a safer and more natural option for athletes looking to ditch the pharmaceuticals. If you’re ready to implement healthier practices into your life, consider adding cannabis to your new post-workout routine.
