Given the level of discussion in the Doping Thread as well as the recent Stop Drinking Thread regarding cannabis I thought it would be worthwhile to move some of the discussion to a separate thread. Given that cannabis products are beginning to legalize/decriminalize in many states, and Canada has begun to treat it like alcohol and tobacco figured it would be worthwhile to see if we can have a fact based discussion on the topic, it’s impacts (positive/negative) on training and cycling.
I’ve been looking for some more peer reviewed literature to see the impacts. Alcohol has been researched pretty heavily, and @chad has even had some in-depth discussion on its impacts on training and recovery. Wondering if folks have similar types of information they can share here.
This thread is not a debate regarding the legality of the product in or out of competition, nor are we debating the legality of it from state to state/country to country, simply whether there is some benefit to be gained from its use, either by the layman, or the athletes, and the potential negative implications when compared to other vices such as alcohol.
