Top-5 Strains for Working Out. How Do Cannabis and Exercise Go Together

Cannabis makes for a great companion when you are doing exercises.

Cannabis consumption is much more than the stereotypical stoner, couch locked and munching on junk food. Marijuana’s effects can be motivating, energizing, and invigorating, especially in case of sativa, sativa leaning or high CBD strains. Lots of people enjoy cannabis before or after their work out for numerous reasons. It has been reported to help with pain management, act as a muscle relaxant to help you avoid cramps, help liven up your exercise routine, provide extra focus if necessary, compliment the runner’s high and much more. You just gotta find the right strain. And we have some suggestions - let’s take a look at our list of top 5 strains for a work out.


A rather rare strain that will get you moving! A perfect motivator to use before going to the gym.

It is a classic sativa that will leave you focused but be careful not to overdo it. Chocolope is very potent and you do not want to feel racy during a work out.

Note that we are not encouraging you to combine cannabis and work out, but rather providing strain advice should you decide to try it. Keep in mind that cannabis may increase pressure for a while, thus, if you have a heart condition or plan a rigorous work out, it is best to consult your physician on the matter or avoid it altogether.

One of the best options for combining cannabis and work out would be to avoid smoking to make it easier on the cardiovascular system and the lungs. Go for edibles, namely tinctures as they have more predictable time of effects compared to chocolates and gummies. Although, you might have a hard time finding your favorite strain in the edible form. Also, beware of consuming marijuana before using a treadmill, lifting weights, or doing anything requiring operating machinery. That is a no-no.

As always, we urge you to use cannabis responsibly, do not overconsume, and simply enjoy!
