For some, vaping cannabis seemed like a better choice than smoking it. But is that really the case?
Ultrarunners, mountain bikers, and other endurance athletes are no strangers to cannabis, and despite the old stereotype of the vegged out stoner, cannabis users tend to be quite active.
In fact, 82 percent of marijuana users said they have used weed within one hour before or four hours after exercise, according to a Colorado University, Boulder survey of 600 adult marijuana users from five different states published last April.
Though most said they were more likely to use cannabis after exercise than before, 67 percent said they did both. Among those who used cannabis along with exercise, 70 percent said it increased the enjoyment of exercise, 78 percent said it boosted recovery, and 52 percent said it heightened motivation.
