Dear Ron: I’d recommend waiting to get high until after your workout — that gives you something to look forward to, and it’ll be easier to remember your reps — but I’m not your father, so light up and lift if you feel so inclined, brother.
Even if you’re intent on toking or eating edibles before exercising, though, you should keep consumption limited. I have friends who swear by microdosing edibles and then going for a run, heading out on a bike ride, shooting hoops or even lifting. But they microdose, meaning they don’t eat the entire candy bar. Don’t go above 10 milligrams if you try this; any more, and you’re likely to be zonked out and run in the wrong direction with devil eyes.
yoga classes in Denver over the years that allow pot consumption, with participants toking up before and after their workouts. Take inspiration from those.
