Dr. Weiss’s ad­vice for run­ning high

Canadian Running - - OFF THE BEATEN PATH -

More is not bet­ter. If you think in­gest­ing more will help with a speed­ier re­cov­ery, that’s not likely the case. If you in­gest an ed­i­ble, it takes 60–90 min­utes to feel the ef­fects vs. 3–8 min­utes if you smoke it. Know your lim­its.

Only at­tempt this with the guid­ance of a doc­tor who can help you make the best de­ci­sions, based on your body and needs.

Ask some­one who has ex­pe­ri­ence us­ing and train­ing. Dr. Weiss says there are pro­fes­sional ath­letes who are very trans­par­ent about their cannabis use and are will­ing to speak via so­cial me­dia, on­line fo­rums or even email.
