"The pairing of cannabis and yoga can yield numerous physical and mental benefits, as both practices are known to have therapeutic effects on the body and mind. Cannabis has been shown to alleviate symptoms of chronic pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms, while also promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety (Russo, 2008). This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who experience discomfort or anxiety during yoga practice.
Yoga, on the other hand, is known to improve flexibility, strength, and balance while also promoting mental clarity and focus (Ross et al., 2013). Combining cannabis with yoga can potentially enhance these benefits, as the relaxation and pain-relieving effects of cannabis can help practitioners to achieve deeper stretches and maintain poses for longer periods without discomfort.
Moreover, the meditative aspects of yoga practice can be complemented by the psychoactive properties of cannabis, which can induce a state of enhanced mindfulness and heightened sensory awareness (Walsh & Thiessen, 2018). This heightened awareness can help practitioners to become more present and focused during their yoga practice, leading to a more immersive and transformative experience."
