“We’re the new kid in town and we love it; nothing is more exciting than being at the forefront of a movement of fitness enthusiasts using cannabis openly, to not only help them get through their workout but to help recover afterwards,” it continues.
“We are the real-life examples of the people who are actually using weed and really feeling a difference in our physical training.”
