5. Improve Focus
Cannabis can improve athlete focus. Just like with distance running, the mental effects of THC can drive certain runners.
First, it eliminates inhibitions so athletes can take bigger risks in the name of winning. If THC can inspire that level of fearlessness, athletes want to find out for certain.
Also, cannabis encourages singular concentration on a goal. Since athletes look for their gateway to the “zone” where they can perform with razor-sharp skill, some turn to cannabis for that edge.
