Pro Tips: Cannabis and Your Workout
The stigma against “lazy stoners” is fading fast. Are you part of the movement?
Today’s consumers are increasingly being revealed as active, athletic folks who are focused on using the plant for its wellness applications. The challenge is to find the right product and dosage to enhance the workout, rather than get in the way.
