Cannabis might actually motivate you to workout — via TheGrowthOp

A new study published in the medical journal Frontiers in Public Health has found that consuming cannabis may help motivate users to exercise and improve their workouts.The data collected indicates that most of the study’s participants report that cannabis consumption led to better exercise experience.

“Results indicated that the majority of participants endorsed using cannabis concurrently with exercise, and those who did tended to be younger and more likely to be males ,” the study reads. Furthermore, participants reported that cannabis use increased the amount of exercise in which they partook, and that it not only increased their enjoyment of the workout but improved their post-workout recovery.“Even after controlling for these differences, co-users reported engaging in more minutes of aerobic and anaerobic exercise per week .

The increase in motivation is perhaps the study’s most surprising piece of information, given the prevalence of the “lazy pothead” stereotype of a sedentary, shiftless procrastinator. The study’s authors hope the information will provide a more accurate portrait of the average cannabis user. “This study represents an important step in clarifying cannabis use with exercise among adult users in states with legal cannabis markets, and provides guidance for future research directions,” the study concludes.

TheGrowthOp No disputing this study given the chiseled bod of sethrogan

TheGrowthOp Who writes this crap? Obviously been into the pot stash and wrote the article that some stooge published.

TheGrowthOp Smoked it for 25 years, you are voodoo very wrong.

TheGrowthOp Ya... NO

TheGrowthOp But it will never offset the calories from the Doritos. 😋

TheGrowthOp I have four years of college that begs to disagree

TheGrowthOp It might actually motivate you to work out. Might is the key word here. I took a glance and first read coronavirus instead of cannabis and the funny thing is I have started to work out more because of CV-19. If I get it better chance of fighting it off.

TheGrowthOp False.

TheGrowthOp ‘Workout’ is a noun. It’s bad enough you’re compromised; do you also have to be incompetent?

TheGrowthOp This is another sponsored ad... Canadians are potheads if they believe smoking pot motivates you.

TheGrowthOp No it doesn’t but it does make Dictatorship rule slightly more tolerable. Poverty on the other hand sucks and seeing our elderly lose their pensions is horror. Count down till Jan 2021 Make up with your kids

TheGrowthOp And to eat with your anorexic

TheGrowthOp Depends on what strain you get. Go for sativas for some energy.
