With so many states legalizing marijuana, weed has started to become a less taboo subject, which people are starting to welcome with open arms into their lives like they never had before. Most people have started to try cannabis during Yoga.
For some private yoga studios in other states, they offer people this luxury specifically those who want to get a little kick out of their classes. Some may even practice smoking a little bit before they start their sessions at home. All in all, smoking marijuana while practicing yoga, provides the user with a totally new experience, which allows them to experience a whole new experience of meditation.
Of course, while there are people who just love the idea of yoga and marijuana, there will always be others who are completely against the practice but instead supplementing their yoga sessions with special herbs and plants, which has been done for years especially among those who have started early. Even through plants, it can help you experience a higher level of consciousness.
If you are contemplating trying this for the first time, here’s what to expect when you combine yoga and marijuana during your sessions:
Mental Changes When Taking Cannabis During Yoga
Obviously, smoking weed gives you a different mental perspective. If you take weed along with your practice, you can find yourself getting lost in the process much easier, which pushes away your negative thoughts without even realizing it. In fact, with the use of marijuana, you may end up feeling more connected to your body as compared to practicing yoga without marijuana.
It’s possible to reach an epiphany type of feeling. Although we do want to point out that most effects will defer depending on the person, it is still exciting to see how the results play out. Take note, knowing how you react to marijuana is the key to having an effective and safe yoga practice. If you know within yourself that you will just end up becoming paranoid or anxious with other people who are high, then maybe practicing this with a group of other people will not be the best choice.
You could instead try this in the comforts of your own home, where other people will not bother you. Furthermore, if marijuana mellows you out and relaxes you, it may be the perfect combination of your yoga practice, as the whole point of meditation is for you to reach a state of calmness. If you are planning to try this, make sure that the class you will be attending does not prohibit the use of marijuana before or during class. It’s important to remember that it will be better to start with something small first for your first yoga session. That way you will have the freedom to explore how you react to the combination.
Marijuana was legalized for a reason, and that is because it also has a lot of positive effects on the body. Medical Marijuana is used to cure a lot of diseases. It can also help ease all the aches on your body as well as symptoms of many draining conditions.
Sometimes, people who do not make use of marijuana during their yoga practice cannot perform it properly because of all the pain they are feeling. However, once you add this to your practice, the body will be able to better perform yoga. This will, in turn, help your body become stronger and a lot more flexible, which helps ease the pain.
Again, it is very crucial for you to know how your body will react, so start with a very small dose first. Do not push yourself too hard as well, especially if you are just about to start.
