5 Essentials for working out high
We all know exercise is good for our bodies and weed can be great for relieving pain, muscle spasms as well as give us more creativity and focus. So why not combine the two for a kick ass workout that leaves you feeling energized and pumped up for the day?
Let’s talk about the essentials to get the most out of your weed workout:
1. Some choice buds for your pre workout
You want to pick some choice buds that are going to be energizing and uplifting to your senses. Sativas are usually the best choice for this. A couple good suggestions would be Blue Dream strain; it delivers swift full body relaxation and gentle cerebral invigoration but without heavy sedative effects. Another is the Green Crack strain; it packs a happy, euphoric feeling that will get your heart pumping and ready to take on the day. Both strains are very popular for daytime use.
2. Bring a workout buddy
Bringing a quality workout buddy is essential to keeping you motivated and gives you someone to sweat it out with. Nothing is better than getting high and trying to coordinate activities together. It makes the workout so much more fun if you bring someone who is on your level. You can make up workouts to be competitive and keep score or just go on a hike. Here are a few suggestions: Sea turtles, bear crawls, single leg squats or some really funny partner workouts to do together.
3. Stay hydrated
Staying hydrated during a weed workout is a deal breaker. You may experience more dry mouth than usual so keeping a jug of H20 handy will prevent you from getting a mouthful of cotton. Plus water will keep you cool as you kick ass at your exercises.
4. Bring headphones for a solo workout
Bringing headphones on a solo workout is like bringing a buddy in the sense that you are distracted from the workout and it can bring you to a different level than without. Some good jams will uplift and enhance your mindset for powering through any type of exercise. Wireless headphones are most popular because they are easier to manage.
5. Rejuvenate with CBD post workout
Rejuvenating with CBD for your post workout will restore balance and system equilibrium in your body. When you workout the muscle fibers in your body get miscroscopic damage and become inflamed. CBD is known for treating inflammation and muscle spasms that will help you recover faster from workouts. There are many CBD products out there, popular options are Topicals, Tinctures, and Capsules.
