Cannabis journalist Josiah Hesse chats with Trey Elling about RUNNERS HIGH: HOW A MOVEMENT OF CANNABIS-FUELED ATHLETES IS CHANGING THE SCIENCE OF SPORTS. The guys discuss the physiology behind “the runner’s high”, the comprehensive nature of our internal cannabinoid system, the demonization of cannabis in the early 1900s after it had been used as a plant medicine for thousands of years, research over the past 70 years that is correcting the ‘lazy stoner’ trope, the convoluted logic behind World Anti-Doping Agency labelling cannabis as a performance-enhancing drug, and more.
