While there is still the negative stereotype that stoners are lazy and can't seem to get off the couch, most stoners today are the healthiest people around. Not only does cannabis get you high but it's good for you to ingest the raw leaves in drinks, good for the skin, and apparently helps with exercising as well. Now, a plant that has medical reasons plus these should definitely be put to use in the American society, especially if cannabis would help reduce the amount of unhealthy people in the world.
A study done that was recently released stated that the body's storage of the THC chemical can give exercisers and extra boost, up to almost a month after smoking. As you exercise, you burn off fat. Since THC is a fat-soluble chemical, these bursting fat cells release small amounts of THC back in to your system. The body the starts to feel the effects of smoking a small bowl full of cannabis. Marijuana has constantly been in sports news lately, debating on if the plant helps or hinders athletes in their respective sport.
When you work out, do you notice that you feel good? Like you're happy, positive, and your body just feels amazing? That's because when you exercise, the brain activates the same system that releases endocannabinoids. So when you exercise, you're actually getting the same feelings as when you smoke a bowl. Scientists think that this bodily response to exercise is a way for the body to reduce the feeling of pain when working out. Obviously when you exercise, you stretch muscles and strain your systems. By producing these endocannabinoids, the body fights pain and gives you that "runners high" feeling.
Well, this information will be good for those of you with serious cases of munchies. Those who use cannabis on a regular basis have shown to have fasting insulin levels that are 16% lower than those who don't smoke (fasting insulin is the insulin in your body before ingesting food). The study also pointed out that cannabis smokers had a 17% lower insulin resistance level, not to mention lower waist size average. Basically, cannabis is being looked at as a way to help make the metabolism work faster.
One could definitely use this to argue that cannabis is definitely a help to those who play sports and smoke the drug. As more information on the subject comes out, we'll be able to tell for sure. One thing is clear. Cannabis has so many uses, some that we may not even be able to comprehend just quite yet. What this plant can do for our bodies is amazing and there's no reason that we shouldn't be utilizing it daily.
