Incorporating Medical Marijuana into Health and Fitness

Mental and physical health are becoming more of a concern in today’s society, and rightly so. It is very important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise when possible, not just for physical health but also for mental health.

The age-old stereotype that people who use marijuana are lazy or only use cannabis to get stoned is outdated and is thankfully fading out. Most people understand the value of marijuana as medicine nowadays.

Currently, 37 states have medical marijuana programs, and 21 states have legalized recreational marijuana. Over 60% of Americans currently favor the legalization of marijuana entirely.

Medical marijuana can actually be a great way to relieve a whole host of symptoms associated with various conditions. Incorporating marijuana into your fitness regime might even help you lead a better lifestyle!

Here are some ways in which you can incorporate medical marijuana into your health and fitness routine:


When most people think of edibles, they think of cookies, brownies, and baking recipes with low nutritional value. However, you can infuse any recipe in the world with marijuana.

Nowadays, everybody doesn’t eat the same. Not only are there more vegetarians than ever, but the societal emphasis on health has also led many people to adopt other diets such as keto, gluten-free, paleo, and vegan.

Some people think vegans and vegetarians eat mostly vegetables and boring greens, however, this is not the case! No matter what you are cooking, you can add cannabis-infused cooking oil to your list of ingredients for extra relief.

You can also drizzle cannabis oil on any meal including salads or veggies. Balance out the flavor with avocado or coconut oil. Homemade fries drizzled with cannabis oil, paprika, garlic, salt, and pepper make for a great healthy snack!


Most people are not getting as much sleep as they should: at least 7 to 8 hours to be exact. Are you? In order to maintain a high level of functioning, it is important to have good, deep, uninterrupted sleep.

Many potential medical marijuana patients struggle with this, because their symptoms may be painful and keep them up throughout the night. Some conditions may also cause insomnia, making it very difficult to get sufficient sleep.

An indica strain of cannabis can do the trick! Cannabis, especially indica, may help you fall asleep sooner, stay asleep longer, and get better quality sleep! Some medical marijuana patients also report that cannabis reduces grogginess the next morning!


Meditation is an age-old practice that has recently increased in popularity among Americans. A healthy lifestyle means mental and physical balance, and mental balance can be achieved with meditation.

Starting regular meditation can be trickier than one would think. It is hard to know what to do and some people don’t know where to start. One of the many purposes of meditation is to clear your mind, and marijuana can help you do this.

Many experienced meditators even report that marijuana can allow their minds to fall into an even deeper state of relaxation. Cannabis is known to help with focus and concentration, two of the most important things for effective meditation.
