CU study pushes back on stoner stereotype, suggests 80% mix weed with workouts - The Cannabist
Long has the image of the weed smoker — one glued to the couch, Doritos bag in hand — sustained in popular culture. Rarely, if ever, does the stereotype include a pair of dumbbells.
A new study to be published Tuesday by the University of Colorado Boulder in Frontiers in Public Health pushes back on that notion, signaling that 80% of weed smokers mix the drug with their workouts. The same study goes as far as suggesting the mixture may be beneficial for some.
“There is a stereotype that cannabis use leads people to be lazy and couch-locked and not physically active, but these data suggest that this is not the case,” said Angela Bryan, the study’s senior author and a professor in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience and the Institute for Cognitive Science.
