Are cannabis and exercise the only things keeping you going in 2020? Have you been working out to look good for your virtual MDW barbecue? Whether you’re an avid runner or you tried yoga for the first time this week, we have the scoop on how to combine the two elements of quarantine you love best.

After all, the Waldos—credited with pioneering 420 celebrations—were a group of high school athletes who met up after school to enjoy cannabis. That said, check out what cannabis product we’ve paired for your workout!

After your sunset yoga flow…

Have you taken advantage of this free Women’s Health Week yoga class? Yoga has numerous benefits, challenging us to grow stronger both mentally and physically. You’ll want to relieve your muscles after pushing them to the limits, so before you settle into that Shavasana and call it a night, try one of PLUS’ many flavors of UNWIND edibles. From blackberry-and-lemon gummies to black cherry mints, you’ll find peace of mind with these indica treats.

Switch gears to recovery mode after strength training

You used to think that trip to Dick’s Sporting Goods years ago was a waste of time and money, since you were rarely home long enough to use the expensive free weights you bought for the apartment. Fast forward to #Quarantine2020, and these weights have become your new best friend and daily workout buddy.

Once you’ve finished your reps for the day and taken that last sip of protein shake, soak in Om Edibles’ Athletic Formula Epsom Salt. Made with premium cannabis flower and essential oils, this relaxing bath soak is ideal for relieving aches, easing insomnia (can’t let the endorphins keep you up late!), recovering from workouts, and elevating your mood without any psychoactive effects.

If you went extra hard on leg day, you might want to try PLUS’ CBDRelief 18:1 Tart Cherry. With 20mg of THC and 360mg of CBD, these all natural gummies are formulated to help reduce everyday pain and post-exercise soreness while delivering a delectable tart cherry flavor.
