Let’s Work Out: How Cannabis Can Complement An Active Lifestyle

March 24, 2022 • 01 pm

You probably don’t associate cannabis with an active lifestyle. That’s because in the past marijuana was heavily associated with “stoner” culture. You know the drill: Take a hit, hit the couch, and then comes the munchies. With this reputation, and because of its former illegal status, cannabis suffered from negative stigma — deserved or not.

But just as times have changed, so has the reputation of our favorite flower. Today, cannabis has gone mainstream and it’s used for a variety of ailments and conditions, from muscle and joint pain to anxiety and insomnia.

Active lifestylers and athletes have taken hold of this in a big way. When it comes to training, pain management, recovery, and rest, there’s no better (or more natural) way to take the win than with cannabis.

You can find CBD and THC products in just about everything these days. Oils, gummies, creams, balms, lotions, you name it. There’s no shortage of cannabis products, and we’ve got an impressive inventory for all your needs here at The Leaf El Paseo.

With picturesque mountain ranges, warm temps, and endless blue skies, it’s no surprise that many Coachella Valley residents enjoy an active lifestyle. With CV Link, the Tour De Palm Springs, numerous 5Ks, amazing golf courses, and incredible hiking trails, it’s one of the most enviable places to call home.

Just look at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, host of this month’s BNP Paribas, also known as the sport’s unofficial fifth major. Once again we welcome the athletes, staff, volunteers and spectators from around the world to our beautiful desert. For homegrown athletes and visitors alike, The Leaf has something for everyone in store.

Care By Design
