You may have heard, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has raised the acceptable THC levels for Olympic athletes. This comes, as study after study show that THC and CBD, two active chemicals in the marijuana plant, have massive healing properties, including a deepening of concentration, increase in tissue oxygenation and decrease in muscle spasms before. These benefits take place before, during and after physical exhertion.
“I use it as a way to intensify and enhance the run,” Colorado-based long-distance runner Avery Collins told Motherboard. “It makes the longevity of the runner’s high last longer because technically you’re already high.”
The agency still finds it against the rules to take THC on the day of the competition, but it is now a serious viability for atheletes before the day of action.
One of the biggest values of THC is that upon induction, it creates pregnenolone, the chemical that is a precursor to the body's natural steroids. It helps people run harder and move faster, without succumbing as readily to the pain.
In addition to eating the best foods you can, introducing THC to the system is one of the best performance enhancing things you can add. Use it in small doses at opportune times; your body will thank you for it.
