Brains, Dancing, and Gatorade: Would You Drink Weed-Infused Water To Make Working Out More Enjoyable? @balleralert Would You Drink Weed-Infused Water To Make Working Out More Enjoyable? -blogged by @BenitaShae As recreational marijuana use continues to spread across the country, cannabis-based products are a hot commodity. The latest product on the market is weed-infused water that allegedly helps your workout become more tolerable. According to FirstWeFeast, EVERx, a CBD-packed water product, is the latest product from cannabis extraction company Puration. At the company's Colorado extraction facility, Puration combines cannabidiol—or CBD, as it’s commonly known—with H2O, which is something Gatorade can't give you. While you're maxing out your bench press or getting your dance on in Zumba class, Puration suggests its product may be exactly what you need to better your workout routine. A press release from the company says, "CBD is an ideal component of a pre and post workout regime. CBD works as an anti-inflammatory and relieves muscle spasms. CBD also works to relieve pain. CBD protects the heart, lungs and brain. Often essential when it comes to high intensity and competitive training, CBD reduces nausea, increases appetite and aides sleep. Ongoing research continues in regard to CBD as a treatment for sports related head trauma. CBD is not just a good addition to an athletes training regime; It can be the foundation of a healthy wellness routine for everyone." The water doesn't contain any THC so you won't feel any kind of buzz but it's known to help with inflammation, anxiety and reduce pain. Would you give weed-infused water a try?
