My favourite pre-rolls for working out.
As a budtender, some people look at me like I am crazy when I say I smoke a joint and go for a run (check out how to make smoking healthier HERE). Did you know that there are a growing number of athletes turning to cannabis, whether it is to help them focus, sleep better, or for faster recovery.
I am by no means a professional athlete. But I do enjoy moving my body on a daily basis, whether through running, yoga, pilates, dance etc. Adding cannabis to my workouts has allowed me to enjoy them more, especially on days when I lack motivation. There is nothing more enjoyable to me than strapping on my running shoes, putting on some energetic music, smoking a joint and going for a run. I can really get in the zone and my runs are next level.
*Psst. Please be careful running while high and make sure you are safe.
In general, when looking for a more energetic smoke, go for a sativa or sativa dominant hybrid as they will typically be more uplifting. Look for strains that are high in the terpenes limonene and myrcene as they are good for fitness.
Some people experience a lot of anxiety with Sativa strains. I find that this is a non-issue if you move your body as you will burn off any excess energy and get your circulation going. At the end of the day, every body is unique and it will take some experimentation to find what works for you.
My Favourite Pre-rolls for Working Out
This is one of my all-time favourite cultivars for running. As a budtender, I have recommended this to many people looking for something very energizing and uplifting for working out and they always come back for more.
2) Super Lemon Haze by Versus
The haze component makes this cultivar slightly more chill than Lemon Z. It is perfect when you need some focus, and help getting in the zone. Perfect for longer runs or lifting weights.
3) Citrus Skunk by Greenseal
Is a nice smooth smoke that is uplifting and energetic. Perfect for faster paced, harder workouts.
4) Stó:lō Haze by All Nations
This sativa combines both energizing and relaxing effects and is across between Norther Lights and Super Silver Haze. I have done a lot of personal research into what cannabis strains athletes enjoy and Northern Lights and Super Silver Haze always make the list.
5) Lime Mojito by Simply Bare Organic
I absolutely love the taste, it is exactly as advertised. It provides the perfect elevation to get your body moving and a shaking.
I chose pre-rolls because I work as a bud tender and it is by far the most popular consumption method. People are looking for convenience and will gladly pay more to have it already rolled for them. Keep it in mind, if you find a cultivar that you enjoy, you will save a lot $ if you buy flower and roll it yourself. If you are not a roller, I got you.
