Cannabis Exercise Clubs
An emerging trend in the cannabis industry that completely undermines the lazy stoner persona.
There are many different reasons why people choose to consume cannabis.
For some people cannabis is a medicine, for others, they choose to consume cannabis to gain a better night’s sleep — it’s a very long list.
The Lazy Stoner
We have all heard the stories of the “lazy stoner”, however, there is a type of cannabis consumer which undermines this popular tale.
These are the people who consume cannabis to enhance their exercise.
Contrary to the popular narrative that people who consume cannabis are lazy, there is a long list of high-performing athletes who have come out of the cannabis closet to express their love for this plant:
→ Nick & Nate Diaz: Two of the best athletes in the world in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.
→ Amy Van Dyken: Six-time Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer for the U.S Swimming team.
→ Connor Mc’Gregor: The highest paid athlete in the world in 2020, and the former UFC two weight division champion.
→ Ross Rebagliati: Former Olympic gold medalist in snowboarding who had this medal taken off him for consuming cannabis.
→ Jamie Anderson: Olympic Gold medal winning snowboarder from the 2014 Olympic games.
→ Carmelo Anthony: One of the best basketball players of all times, receiving ten NBA All-Star awards throughout his career.
This specific trend of people seeking to consume cannabis to enhance exercise goes far beyond high-performing athletes, as is highlighted by the emergence of “Pelostoners” on the popular home exercise machine Peloton.
Currently, there are 86 (make me 87) members of “#Pelostoners” — a club which has formed on Peloton as a result of their mutual appreciation for cannabis.
