Turns Out Cannabinoids Are Responsible for Our Runner’s High

Recently, a group of scientists found out that our body’s natural cannabinoids are responsible for our runner’s high. For the longest time, we thought that endorphins caused “runner’s high” — that feeling of bliss when we run. But research in the past two decades revealed that endocannabinoids might be the primary cause of this high instead. A […]

How 15 Minutes of Strength Training Can Reduce Pain Via Endocannabinoid System

We all know working out is good, even if we don’t like doing it. Now, new research sheds light on just how strength training effects the endocannabinoid system, and how this in turn can help reduce pain and inflammation. And it brings several implications with it.

Let’s be honest, exercise is good and we should all be doing it. If 15 minutes of daily strength training can activate the endocannabinoid system, and lower inflammation and pain, this could be a great answer for many people. For those who want to stimulate their endocannabinoid system in other ways, there are tons of cannabis compound out there to help.

What’s the news?

In a recent study through the University of Nottingham, in England (The anti-inflammatory effect of bacterial short chain fatty acids is partially mediated by endocannabinoids), it was found that short daily strength training periods of approximately 15 minutes, are enough to reduce the pain of people suffering from arthritis, as well as lower inflammation, while increasing endocannabinoid levels in the endocannabinoid system.

The overall purpose of the study was to “explore the functional interactions between the endocannabinoid system and the gut microbiome in modulating inflammatory markers”. To do this, 78 participants were used in the study, all with arthritis. The group was split into two, with 38 participants engaging in 15 minutes of muscle strengthening exercises, on a daily basis for six weeks. The remaining 40 participants did no strength training exercise in that time period. After six weeks, the groups were compared.

It was found that the group which engaged in strength training exercise had a reduction in pain, lower levels of cytokines which cause inflammation, and higher levels of endocannabinoids in the endocannabinoid system. It was also found that this exercising group had a higher level of gut microbes which are known to produce anti-inflammatory compounds.

endocannabinoid system

These microbes are also linked to the higher levels of endocannabinoids (2-arachidonoylglycerol [2-AG] and anandamide [AEA]), in that the gut microbes produced – SCFAs, seem to be related to endocannabinoid levels. The scientists measured that about 1/3 of the anti-inflammation changes in the gut, were due to increases in endocannabinoids.

According to the researchers, “Our data show that the anti-inflammatory effects of SCFAs are partly mediated by the EC system suggesting that there may be other pathways involved in the modulation of the immune system via the gut microbiome.” They went on to say: “Our study clearly shows that exercise increases the body’s own cannabis-type substances. Which can have a positive impact on many conditions.”

What is the endocannabinoid system?

Basically, the endocannabinoid system is a system within the body made up of endocannabinoids, which are lipid-based neurotransmitters that bind to receptors to produce a response, as well as the receptor proteins they bind to, which can be found all throughout both the central and peripheral nervous systems. This system is incredibly important for CNS function, as well as aiding in synaptic plasticity (changes in synaptic behavior), and in how our bodies respond to relevant stimuli from within the body or outside.

Though the endocannabinoid system is still under much investigation, with many question marks attached, research has pointed to it being related to cognitive function, along with physiological processes like fertility and pregnancy, and natal and early growth and development.

Research also shows it likely playing a part in immune function, mood regulation, emotion, motivation, learning and memory, appetite, pain sensitivity and modulation, addiction behaviors, motor coordination and control, and of course, for providing us the psychoactive effects of cannabis cannabinoids like delta-9 THC.

The endocannabinoid system has several receptors of interest when it comes to cannabis, like CB1, CB2, and the more newly discovered GPR55, sometimes referred to as CB3. CB1 and CB2 receptors can be found in the brain, nervous system, immune system, and gastrointestinal system. CB1 receptors are known for regulating neural transmissions and peripheral aspects, while CB2 receptors are more known for the regulation of immune and inflammatory pathways.

GPR55 is less well understood, but is expected to be responsible for how many different cannabinoids effect the body, with receptor action being identified in the nervous system, in the frontal cortex, cerebellum, striatum, hypothalamus, and brain stem of the brain, in dorsal root ganglia neurons, in the spleen, tonsils, adrenals, bones, endothelial cells, intestines, lungs, kidneys, and fat tissue. It is thought GPR55 is involved in the experience of neuropathic pain, and inflammation.

receptor sites

What other implications does the study have?

The first thing to remember is that the Nottingham University study was conducted on arthritics. This means that the results shown, a reduction in inflammation and pain, are not related to a healthy person, but one who has a specific disorder which increase both inflammation, and the experience of pain. The study showed that strength training exercise was able to decrease the inflammation and pain in people with arthritis, at least partially by way of activation of the endocannabinoid system.

This implies that a healthy person who undergoes the same exercise regimen should also be able to reduce inflammation, and that such exercise could therefore help regulate standard inflammation issues not related to a specific illness.

Healthy people also suffer inflammation from injuries, from stress, and from other environment factors, so understanding what exercise can do for those with a specific issue, also sheds light on what can be expected for those who only deal with standard problems.

It also implies the ability to help with other medical issues that involve pain and inflammation, like asthma and allergies, autoimmune disorders, IBS, coeliac disease, and hepatitis. Does it mean exercising 15 minutes a day will cure these things? Or even arthritis? No, but it does show a possible ability to help. And for people suffering ailments specifically related to bad lifestyles and faulty health, simply adding in such an exercise regimen might actually be capable of completely reversing some problems.

Can the endocannabinoid system be overly-activated?

The answer to this seems to be yes, based on previous research. While the topic hasn’t been 100% flushed out, there is good indication that those with obesity have an overactivated endocannabinoid system and elevated endocannabinoid levels.

In fact, in the study Overactivation of the endocannabinoid system alters the antilipolytic action of insulin in mouse adipose tissue, researchers specifically looked into whether “obesity-related metabolic dysregulation is associated with overactivation of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which involves cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1R), in peripheral tissues, including adipose tissue (AT).” Adipose tissue is fat tissue.

over-active endocannabinoid system

The researchers found a link between obesity and the endocannabinoid system over-functioning, drawing the conclusion that their “study indicates the existence of a functional interaction between CB1R and lipolysis regulation in AT. Further investigation is needed to test if the elevation of ECS tone encountered in obesity is associated with excess fat mobilization contributing to ectopic fat deposition and related metabolic disorders.”

This is a good time to remind that too much of anything tends to be bad, even good things. For example, fruit is good for you, but eating too much means the overconsumption of sugar. Or, eating carrots is good for your eyes, but eat too many and you’ll turn orange. So, it suffices to say that there is a point at which too much function in the endocannabinoid system could be a bad thing too.

Weirdly enough, though cannabis is so often associated with the munchies and being hungry, a strange fact can often be missed: regular cannabis users tend to have lower BMIs, suffer less obesity, and tend to have better metabolic health, than others who consume less calories but don’t smoke cannabis.

In the study Theoretical Explanation for Reduced Body Mass Index and Obesity Rates in Cannabis Users, it’s posited by researchers: “We provide for the first time a causative explanation for this paradox, in which rapid and long-lasting downregulation of CB1R following acute Cannabis consumption reduces energy storage and increases metabolic rates, thus reversing the impact on body mass index of elevated dietary omega-6/omega-3 ratios.”

Conclusion

With some things in life, its hard to know if they’re necessary or not. Maybe taking vitamins helps, maybe they never get absorbed. Maybe eating meat helps, and maybe it leads to other health issues. But I never see anyone say anything bad about exercise, especially in the 15-minutes-a-day range.

Sometimes it really is hard to know what’s good for you, and what’s not. However, sometimes there isn’t an argument at all. Whether a person exercises to stay in shape physically, as a form of stress-release, or to regulate a health issue, the one thing that seems to be a general fact, is that exercise is good. That 15 minutes of strength training a day could have such positive benefits for the endocannabinoid systems of arthritics patients, to the point of decreasing pain and inflammation, says a whole lot about what we should all be doing every day to stay healthy.

Colorado University Announces Groundbreaking Study on Cannabis and Exercise

Should pot really be considered a “performance-enhancing substance”? A “first-of-its-kind study” at the University of Colorado in Boulder aims to find out. 

When American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson was denied a chance to compete at the Tokyo Olympics this summer due to testing positive for marijuana, it brought attention—and plenty of skepticism—to the reasoning behind the prohibition of cannabis in the world of competitive athletics. 

The so-called SPACE study (“Study on Physical Activity and Cannabis Effects”), announced on Monday, “will enlist more than 50 paid adult volunteers who already mix cannabis and exercise for a study involving three sessions,” the university said in a press release.

“In the first, researchers measure heart rate, have subjects answer a questionnaire and take some baseline fitness measurements. Then, participants are assigned to go to a local dispensary and pick up either a specific CBD-dominant strain or THC-dominant strain,” the announcement said. “On one follow up visit, they return, sober, to run on the treadmill for 30 minutes, answering questions every 10 minutes to assess things like their perception of the passage of time, how hard the workout feels, what they’re thinking about, and how much pain they’re in. On another visit, they do the same, only they get high before they come.”

Laurel Gibson, a PhD student in the University of Colorado’s Department of Psychology and Neuroscience and principal investigator of the study, said that the study will help fill in a gap in cannabis research. 

As the university’s announcement explained, due to a dearth of research in the area, “scientists are unsure just how Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD)—the two primary active ingredients in marijuana—influence physical activity.”

“To date, there are no human studies on the effects of legal market cannabis on the experience of exercise,” Gibson said. “That’s where we come in.”

“Cannabis is often associated with a decrease in motivation—that stereotype of couch-lock and laziness,” Gibson continued. “But at the same time, we are seeing an increasing number of anecdotal reports of people using it in combination with everything from golfing and yoga to snowboarding and running.”

The federal prohibition on weed has prompted the researchers to make certain accommodations with their subjects. 

Due to the law, which “prohibits the possession or distribution of marijuana on college campuses,” the press release explained, the subjects will consume the pot at home “before a researcher picks them up in a mobile laboratory—a white Dodge Sprinter van sometimes referred to as the ‘cannavan’—and brings them safely to the lab.”

The runners will also don a safety belt around their waist while using the treadmill, as an extra precautionary measure.

Angela Bryan, a professor of psychology and neuroscience at the University of Colorado who is serving as the faculty advisor on the study, said that the research could yield a breakthrough for older individuals for whom exercise is too painful.

“If cannabis could ease pain and inflammation, helping older adults to be more active, that could be a real benefit,” Bryan said.

Gibson, meanwhile, said that the research could shed light on the link between cannabis use and the “runner’s high” that has been romanticized by joggers the world over.

“It is possible that exogenous cannabinoids like THC or CBD might activate the endocannabinoid system in a way that mimics the runner’s high,” Gibson said.

Richardson failed a drug test less than a month before the Olympics kicked off in Tokyo, keeping her out of the summer games. Marijuana is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency, as well as the United States Anti-Doping Agency and the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee.

In September, the World Anti-Doping Agency said that it would reconsider its ban on cannabis. 

The USADA has said that pot is banned both because it could present a safety risk to athletes, and that it could potentially enhance performance. 

The latter explanation was widely mocked, including by Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen, who came to Richardson’s defense.

“Marijuana is not a performance-enhancing drug unless you’re entered in the Coney Island hot dog eating contest on the Fourth of July,” Cohen said at the time. “To take her right to appear, her dream, away from her, is absurd.”

Tired & Sore: The Best Cannabis Products for Your After Workout Remedy

If you’re an athletic person, you know the wear and tear that sports and working out, can do to your body. Sore backs, damaged knees, aching muscles. And all the hot showers, sauna experiences, cold packs, Band-Aids, Ace bandages, and tape, used in the process. Perhaps the best addition is cannabis. So, here’s a little about working out, and the best cannabis products for your after-workout experience.

Are you an athlete looking for cannabis products for an after-workout remedy? Cannabis is the new word when it comes to athletics, with old ideas going out the window, and new information replacing them. Cannabis is no longer an enemy to working out, but an aide for it. And delta-8 THC is one of the best options, providing less psychoactive effect, and a clear-headed high. If you want to try it for your own post-workout remedy, or to assist you in your physical activities, check out our awesome Delta-8 THC deals, and we’ll send it to you in your preferred delivery system, so you can enjoy all the benefits.

Cannabis and athletics

The first thing to consider is that cannabis has often been researched only in terminal populations, or to investigate negative qualities. The idea of researching it for positive benefits is a newer invention, and as of yet, not many subjects in this area have been well-funded. But that doesn’t mean nothing exists at all. Before even getting to the athletic research, let’s get into what we already know about cannabis. We know it reduces inflammation (incredibly important when stressing out the body, tiring out joints, pulling muscles…)

We also already know it’s good for pain management, as this is one of the pre-eminent characteristics of cannabis at the moment, especially as an alternative to the opioid crises. We know it can treat muscle spasms because it’s used for spastic disorders like epilepsy. We know that it can improve mental acuity (though this does depend on what product is being used, as not all cannabis products will do this). And we know it can help with sleep, an extremely important factor for athletes who are stressing out their bodies. So, what does the research say?

Research on cannabis and athletics

In 2019, this study came out: The New Runner’s High? Examining Relationships Between Cannabis Use and Exercise Behavior in States with Legalized Cannabis. The study investigated how cannabis can effect things that keep people from working out as much as they should, like lacking motivation to do it, not getting enjoyment from it, or not being able to deal with recovery after it. Not much research had previously been done to assess if smoking right before or right after, could positively affect these things.

The questionnaire study took place in legalized states, for exercising adults over 21 years of age, and took a look at general attitude and behavior related to exercise and cannabis use. Of the respondents, approximately 81% were all for using cannabis with exercise. Younger participants were more likely to feel this way, as well as male participants. With age and sex both controlled for, it was found that those who consume cannabis with exercise, were more likely to report exercising (both aerobic and anaerobic) more minutes per week.

cannabis and working out

Another major finding, was that those who reported using cannabis shortly before or after a workout, expressed more enjoyment with exercise, and better recovery, with about half reporting it also gave them more motivation to exercise in the first place. This ties in to something else.

In 2003, a study came out called Exercise Activates the Endocannabinoid System, which highlighted exactly what the title says. The study used male college students, and had them run on a treadmill or cycle on a stationary bike for 50 minutes, at approximately 70-80% of maximum heart rate. It was found that this moderate exercise activated the endocannabinoid system, with participants showing elevated levels of anandamide in the blood. As cannabis targets and binds to the same receptors, it implies the ability for cannabis to essentially ‘jumpstart’ this system.

This is not a direct connection, and still requires more research, as study investigator Angela Bryan (of the New Runner’s High study) explains. However, simply enjoying doing something creates a positive feedback loop that increases motivation, since people are more likely to repeat something they enjoyed.

Why would we think otherwise?

One of things about cannabis, is that it’s associated with smoking, even though in this day and age, much safer methods like vaping and edibles, give better ways of ingestion. The idea of smoking anything, and athletics, don’t really go together, which is why in athletic competitions, you don’t usually see many people lighting up.

While the US government trips over itself to try and make vaping sound like an epidemic that’s killing people off – a silly notion when comparing 68 deaths since the inception of vaping (to the beginning of 2020), to 480,000 deaths yearly due to smoking. Now, this smoking number is related to cigarettes, but we also know (whether we like applying the knowledge or not), that breathing in anything burning is bad for us, and that would put smoking cigarettes and smoking cannabis, in the same boat, regardless of the extra detriments of one, or the health benefits of the other.

cannabis after workout remedy

In this way, smoking cannabis by lighting it on fire, most certainly isn’t the best way to use it for exercise, but that doesn’t mean that using cannabis with exercise has to be negative. In fact, with all the research coming out which deals with cannabis for pain management and oxidative stress, you’d think gyms would be selling the stuff.

In this systematic review from 2020, Chronic Cannabis Consumption and Physical Exercise Performance in Healthy Adults: A Systematic Review, you can see the lack of detriment smoking cannabis has on athletic performance. The review used cross-sectional, longitudinal, and intervention studies, that investigated things like maximal oxygen uptake, and physical work capacity, using the following resources: PubMed, CINAHL, Medline, PsycArticles, PsycInfo, SPORTDiscus, Psychology and Behavioural Sciences Collection, and Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition databases.

In the entirety of what they were analyzing, the research investigators only came up with one point of measurable difference, and this was in resting heartrate, which was only seen in one study. In fact, cannabis use (even heavy use), was not an indicator for differences in terms of peak workout ability, cardiorespiratory fitness, endurance and strength, pulmonary measures, blood pressure, or perceived exertion. Of the three studies that reported on resting heartrates, one did find significantly higher resting heartrates among cannabis users, than non-users.

This can’t be disregarded, but further research should be done to find out if this difference was related to smoking as an ingestion method. After all, one of the main effects of smoking is elevated blood pressure and heartrate. Plus, it wasn’t seen in the other studies, which indicates it might only be relevant in certain situations.

In yet another study from 2021, The Relationships Between Marijuana Use and Exercise Among Young and Middle-Aged Adults, study investigators used two different waves of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health, and looked at variables like any form of exercise completed, exercise within the last seven days, and number of days participating in seven different kinds of exercise. Cannabis use was looked at in terms of frequency of use in the past month. Results showed cannabis didn’t substantially affect exercise, with the only noted relationship being a positive one between the two, even for the heavier users. There was no indication in this study that using cannabis would stop a person from exercising, or inhibit their ability to do so.

Best cannabis products for after workout success

CBD seems to be the more go-to component for cannabis products meant for an after-workout experience. This could be relevant to CBD being better for exercise, or it could be related to CBD being more legal and available. Regardless, there are plenty of good products to try, with both THC and CBD. Papa & Barkley is a leader in cannabis products, putting out several products for workout recovery, in both the CBD and THC domains.

THC Relief Patches: These single application skin patches offer up to 12 hours of pain relief through transdermal delivery. Patches come in several options, with different concentrations of cannabinoids, though each one has a total of 30mg of cannabinoids each. Patches also contain menthol and camphor for cooling, and can be put on the inside of a wrist, inside or outside the bicep, on the shoulders, back, back of neck, or inside the ankle. These patches are made from fresh-pressed rosin, and don’t contain solvents or chemicals (apart from mineral oil).

THC Relief Body Oil: Papa & Barkley also offers a lightweight, fast-absorbing, cannabis oil in a THC:CBD concentration of 3:1. Each 60ml bottle contains 400mg of cannabinoids, and is good for use all over the body. This oil can be used for localized pain in a joint, or across broader areas, like sore backs or shoulders. The oil is made from a coconut oil infusion, is solvent and chemical free, and also includes eucalyptus, tea tree, peppermint, and lavender.

CBD oil after workout remedy

Releaf Capsules: Papa & Barkley offers yet another way to help with your post-workout recovery with its Releaf Capsules, each containing 30mg of CBD sourced from hemp, in vegan capsules. This is the more ideal remedy for those who want full-body support, and don’t want to lather a product all over themselves.

Another product style that is making it big, is the ‘sport stick’, a deodorant-like balm that can be allied just like deodorant, but anywhere on the body. Bloom Farms Wellness puts out its CBD Sport Stick. The Sports Stick provides immediate cooling to damaged areas, before warming up to provide healing relief. It can be used either before or after a workout, to help the recovery response, or get the juices going in the first place.

MyRemede also puts out an entire line of Active products, like CBD Balm Stick, CBD Skin Cream, CBD Active Gel, and CBD Active Spray. All products use full spectrum hemp extracts, and are made for easy use, either in targeted areas, or over the whole body.

For those with very intense issues, who require a stronger medication, Myaderm puts out its Advanced Sport Cream line with CBD. This cream can be used before or after workouts, and comes in different strengths, with the strongest version containing 2,400mg of CBD in a 1.7oz bottle. For those who require less, 350mg in a .5oz bottle is enough. But don’t worry, there are different strength options in between.

Delta-8 THC cannabis products for your after-workout remedy

We’ve been talking about cannabis as a whole, but there is one specific thing worth mentioning, delta-8 THC. Delta-8 is both an analogue of delta-9, by being molecularly almost identical, and its an isomer of delta-9 because it has the same chemicals structure, but with a different configuration of atoms. This different configuration of atoms (minor as it seems) makes quite a difference. While they share many of the same qualities, delta-8 comes with a few specific characteristics that are slightly different, and which point to delta-8 cannabis products as being the overall better choice for workout recovery.

There are three reasons for this. 1) It produces less psychoactive effect, meaning that a user won’t be quite as high as with traditional delta-9, but still high enough to feel something. 2) It doesn’t produce anxiety and paranoia like delta-9 does for many people. This is important as anxiety and paranoia are not friends of working out, and can lead to injury. And last, 3) It produces a clear-headed and energetic high, meaning it allows the user to think quickly and critically, which is integral for fast-moving sporting activities. For these reasons, and coupled with all the great benefits THC offers in general, delta-8 THC might be the pre-eminent cannabinoid for cannabis products in the workout field.

Conclusion

Cannabis isn’t just for stoners who want to watch TV and eat cookies. It’s also for active people who are using their bodies and their minds. Cannabis products for workout recovery are becoming more popular, and its easy to see why. Not only can they increase enjoyment of hard physical activities, but they can also help repair the damage caused from them.
