6 Best Marijuana Strains to Use After a Workout

Despite the stereotype that most marijuana users are lazy stoners, it’s actually been shown that cannabis users are less likely to develop diabetes and obesity. That means they’re actually living active and healthy lives. One aspect of a healthy life is regular exercise. But some people avoid working out because of how their body feels after doing so.

If that’s the case for you, here are six marijuana strains to use after exercise to avoid all those negative effects:

1. Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is another strain that is both not for newbies but also is somewhat divisive among regular users as well. However, it’s high THC content is extremely effective for treating pain, making it a perfect post-workout strain.

2. Girl Scout Cookies

One of the more popular strains of marijuana, Girl Scout Cookies is known to be an effective strain for combating pain. It’s also great for relaxation after a workout.

3. Blue Dream

Another super popular strain, Blue Dream is often selected by users for its ability to help the entire body physically relax. Isn’t that exactly what you need after a workout?

4. Sweet Kush

This particularly potent strain is probably not for cannabis newbies. It’s known to be particularly helpful for people who suffer from muscle spasms and joint paint, meaning it’s perfect if you’ve just done a lot of heavy lifting at the gym.

5. Cannatonic

This strain that’s high in CBD is more for people actually needing some relief after their workouts. It’s one of the best strains around to relieve pain, cause relaxation in the muscles and also help you feel uplifted.

6. Great White Shark

Ever get the feeling after you go the gym where it seems like every muscle in your body wants to just shut down and not do anything for several hours? That’s where Great White Shark comes in. This strain is known to loosen stiff or sore muscles to help you continue your day even after a strenuous workout.
