Smoking pot and working out.
You might think the two wouldn’t go hand-in-hand but a new study might just make you think again.
Marijuana smoking could actually motivate someone to get to the gym, at least according to a new study from researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder.
They surveyed more than 600 people and found that people who smoke either before or after hitting the gym, or even both, said they were worked out more.
Some even said that it help with recovery from minor aches and pains.
Only a few said it actually improved how they did their workouts.
Researchers say occasional cannabis users might even benefit from combining marijuana with exercise, especially if they avoid the gym because of issues with recovery, motivation or enjoyment.
The survey was advertised on Facebook and targeted users who were 21 and older and lived in states where recreational use of marijuana is legal.
