At the end of every work day, many of us often run to fitness centres or our local yoga studio to help with stress relief and our aching, sore muscles. Lately however, many are trying a new regime that includes medical marijuana before hitting the mats.
With the advance of marijuana being utilized to help with pain relief with little to no negative side effects, many now seem to be enjoying this heady mix to achieve the relaxation that yoga offers, while managing to enjoy the no pain stretching and movement too!
Medical marijuana users feel marijuana is the safest pain reliever on the market, so it should come as no surprise that this blissful combination seems to be cropping up everywhere… (pardon the pun)
Some yoga instructors feel marijuana clears away tension and pain, so their students can enjoy the yoga postures with less resistance, which is key to obtaining the most benefits from doing yoga.
