Can Weed Help Me Work Out? 3 Fitness Friendly Strains
As the weather warms up and you grow more and more tired of having a sedentary lockdown, you may be thinking about working on your summer body. Motivation, however, can be a little hard to come by - but buying weed online can help! Cannabis has long had a reputation of making users sluggish and lazy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth when you pick a great sativa-dominant hybrid strain the next time you buy marijuana online in Canada.
Why sativa-dominant? The high THC content from the sativa parent imparts energy and a cerebral boost that can sometimes leave users spaced out. Stoners who work out have reported that this allows them to zone out through long cardio sessions or power through tough reps - even taking on more difficult workouts than they would usually attempt. The slight indica content of a sativa-dominant hybrid helps to relax muscles, making exercises feel less demanding, heightening the effect of those wonderful workout endorphins, and easing post-workout soreness. Studies have also shown that cannabis has excellent aerobic properties, so even though you may smoke it before a workout, it can improve your cardio performance!
Here are a few Terra Tonic fitness favourites to try the next time you buy marijuana online!
Purple Tangerine Haze
This strain is as tasty as it sounds, and its citrusy aromas make it perfect for a wake n’ bake session to kickstart your day and get amped up for a morning workout. With THC content of 21% or more, Purple Tangerine Haze is known to provide an energy boost for the whole day while its mental effects are calming. As a result of this cerebral soothing, Purple Tangerine Haze is helpful with symptoms of anxiety, depression and ADHD that often make it difficult to commit to and complete a workout and is extremely helpful with mental and physical coordination. This combination makes each workout more satisfying as you avoid getting distracted by your phone between sets and focus acutely on each rep.
Super Lemon Haze
Another citrusy staple that makes many of our lists is Super Lemon Haze. This heavy-hitting sativa-dominant hybrid boasts average THC content of 25%, making it a robust strain that is not for the novice user. Super Lemon Haze provides a tingly body high that is intensely motivating for cardio workouts while also providing the cerebral spaciness that is a welcome distraction from the characteristic tediousness of a long run, elliptical session, or even butt-busting Stairmaster sprint. Since your hands and head will feel a bit buzzy with this strain, you may want to avoid Super Lemon Haze when lifting heavy weights just to be safe.
Like its namesake of a harder-hitting substance, the Organic LSD cannabis strain is famous for psychedelic but soothing body highs. Organic LSD is only slightly sativa-dominant, so it’s better suited for lower impact workouts or working out in the evening. Its 2% CBD content paired with 21% THC bring exceptional ease and focus to yoga, pilates and stretching exercises, making these workouts intensely satisfying while using Organic LSD. If you enjoy post-workout naps, Organic LSD also provides a sweet burnout that may put you to sleep during your end-of-yoga session Shavasana.
