Combining cannabis with sports, exercise and yoga is becoming an integral part of many people's fitness routines. Any person with an active lifestyle may benefit from this type of natural treatment. Better sleep quality, anti-inflammatory properties, pain relief, and improved recovery are just a few reasons to consider adding cannabis to any fitness routine.


Cannabis is flexible and so are the ways in which you can use it! Capsules in the morning can offer pain relief and focus throughout the day. A vape just before your workout can focus the mind and body. Afterwards a hemp protein shake to refuel and rebuild the muscles. Finally a tincture before bed can improve sleep quality and recover for the next day. Or maybe a transdermal patch for 24 hours of continuous relief. The endless combinations of the herb allow for incredible control over your routine.


Injuries can be treated and recovery hastened with cannabis. Medicinal cannabis treatment is often used to:

  • reduce swelling of injured muscles and tendons

  • manage pain

  • treat headaches, especially migraines

  • curb anxiety

  • recover from repetitive head trauma

  • manage stress

  • reduce recovery time between workouts

  • improve sleep quality


As modern lifestyles grow more disjointed and stressful, cannabis can help people to manage stress and practice mindfulness, thereby improving overall health. Being mindful has real physical benefits such as improving sleep quality, lowering blood pressure, lowering risk levels for numerous chronic conditions, alleviating gastrointestinal issues and improving mental health.


Cannabis is a natural alternative for calming anxiety, faster recovery, pain relief and better sleep quality. Taking cannabis before and after exercise has been documented to have 20 times the anti-inflammatory power of aspirin and twice that of the steroid hydrocortisone.  Athletes and exercise enthusiasts are choosing to use a natural recovery system rather than synthetic remedies or addictive options. 


The most common medicinal benefits of cannabis for sports and exercise include: 

  • Reduced inflammation

  • Pain relief

  • Brain trauma/neuroprotection

  • Wound and bone healing 

  • Anxiety reduction

  • Rehabilitation and recovery

  • Better sleep quality
