Smoking weed is the same as killing yourself little by little
The sponsorship part was hilarious!!😂
Imagine going back in time and smoking a blunt
Cannabis is always going to be a controversial drug because it makes you THINK. And the one in charge don't like those money making machines (poor and middle-class) think too much. That's the only reason the whole drug is so demonized.
Mfs in here who dont smoke aint got a CLUE what they on about lmao
The Roman's smoked cannabis
I'm a daily smoker to help reduce chronic pain and all I can add here to the comments is that a lot of people are saying regular users couldn't catch a ball etc because they're stoned. However if used like myself, within a tolerance range, it barely effects you except for pain reduction and anxiety relief. Both of which, I think anyone should have, if they feel it's needed and helping them.

Many professional athletes smoke cigarettes too.
As someone who used to run marathons -‘d ultra-marathons and got an entry to Boston marathon in 2020, I will say that I used to RIP my bong a few times before going on my long runs in the morning and found it helped me go through my work out without much thought. When ran sober it was honestly tougher mentally, I can admit that.
I also smoked or took an edible after my workouts which helped me eat, drink liquids, and relax. Everything which you need after running 10+ miles.
I will say for an endurance sport, it absolutely helps. With the workouts and the recovery. And you don’t even need to smoke it.
I also know it can be crutch for people who feel too high. But for those who can handle it, it’s a plus in either pre or recovery of a workout, or maybe even both.
I will leave you with this. Cannabis has been found to physiologically cause higher metabolism (burn more energy faster), higher heart rate (pump blood faster), and dilate blood vessels (more blood pumped per contraction), so yea, cause everything preworkout should do.
Just saying..and this is before talking about the recovery aspect…
It's banned same reason everything is banned. Some caucus men decided they don't like it so we have to live by their bullshit rules. End of story. And we keep their fat asses rich and in control by paying taxes. But if you have their little special card which you have to pay for Obviously your okay 🙄
The recovery is real i remember after a serious workout i was feeling sore but after 2 blunts my body was back to normal
you right, tabaco and alcohol should ban to
Very well explained. I performed in a powerlifting meet last April and had to be 4 weeks clean of weed. I didnt understand that and now I have some proof..
80% of cannabis users like to work out but only 10% go trough with it haha
Respect to all the people that remain active and motivated. Weed just turns me into a mong
taking a few hits off my pen before going for a jog helps me move into my head where i loose track that im jogging so i end up going for longer and harder since its easier to dial in on those reps towards the end
Lebron the only mf in that thumbnail that will ever touch weed high performing athletes don't have time to be smokin weed because they are not just athletes they are literal entrepreneurs and are not about to waste time being cracked out lmao
I don't smoke but if alcohol is legal… What makes cannabis illegal??
No especially if you smoke it. It reduces your lung capacity and stamina
All football player in all the world I doubt they smoke week at least if they are in a high division
If weed reduces stress, it could perhaps be argued that a sporter who used weed could be better prepared compared to a sporter who doesn't. Therefore enhancing the performance of the smoker due to a more stress free preparation?
damn snoop dog must be a beast then
My uncle plays in the highest level of Dutch football, Eredivisie and he smokes cannabis before games
Enzo, season 4 stranger things?
“It’s from the earth…”
I've also found that since I started smoking weed I've developed a far higher awareness of my body's physical condition. For some reason I am more sensitive now to health issues that I probably wouldn't even have noticed previously. I think the body naturally adjusts to a certain level of discomfort over time, so over time you can end up not realizing the stress and damage that your body accumulates, even through it is still damaging to you.
Cause it's lit asf
smoking and alcohol should be banned though , but yeah it would not satisfy the spirit of sports criteria because not illegal in most parts of the world🥲 what a joke
The health risks of cannabis is well documented and that part in the video is very weakly portrayed.. it's an extremely difficult habit to stop.. It took me 6 months of rehab to quit ganja usage after my college days.. i developed very severe breathing issues while i used to smoke ganja and that made me want to quit using it.. but it was so bloody hard.. i found it difficult just to be happy without smoking..
PLEASE DONT SMOKE CANNABIS!!! PLEASE..
Change that fxckin thumbnail, Ronaldo doesn't smoke or drink. He also doesn't have a tattoo.
zlatan says high sorry hi
Facilitates carb loading, great the day before a long run.
can you guys do a video about why golfers are opting for the Saudi tour instead of the PGA tour?
They smoke weed like ones a mouth stop making it cool to smoke weed
Yes it can make you better and everything depends on you and what kind of high you get! I speak from my own experience now 31 yrs old, playing football since 1994, when i was 3, and smoking weed since 2010. The interesting thing is that i played serious 6 years and me and few others teammates smoked 10 minutes before every game, and at the half time too. The thing that was happening with me was very simple. I felt happy because I played the game i love and just felt all the positive things about playing it. You just play the game for the game, unlocing your own imagination which is filled up with mix of the knowledge of what and how you can do it and alot of passion ( not aggression) completed with wild imagination that can work freely. It's hard to explain it, but I swear i have never felt so happy and completed. Just like an artist who is drawing a painting and feeling the art at the moment that he is creating it. I i still smoke before some hood matches and it never goes away. Just because i really love football. So i think if a person smokes and it's feeling ok with that to act high, and doing what is loving the most. I am sure that the result will be the same. Just unlocking your inner power withtout knowing that you have it, that much and that accurate, strong and … beautifly pure, coming from the heart.
It definitely doesn’t make you better, I can vouch for that
Athletic Interest videos are just on a higher level !
