HIITCAST 027 - Exercise and marijuana research, Pt. 1

Updated: Aug 1, 2019

Have you ever wondered how marijuana effects exercise?

Should an athlete get busted for it being in their system? Does it add any physiological value to your exercise performance that should make it a banned substance, enough to consider it "cheating"? What about isolating CBD for recovery and therapeutic benefit?

In this episode, I am joined by my good friend Dr. Laura Stewart (Laura.Stewart@unco.edu) from the University of Northern Colorado and currently the RMACSM past-president, to discuss her pioneering research over the past few years in the physiological effect of cannabis and exercise performance, outcomes, and recovery!
