Angela's study on the use of cannabis around and during physical activitiy continues to garner attention in popular media.
Notably she shared that "I got interested in the connection between cannabis use and exercise because as legalization happens, you worry if it's true that cannabis makes people unmotivated." And that "So we went into it thinking that there would be this harmful effect of cannabis on exercise. And that doesn't seem to be what we find at all."
Her study found that "a really surprising number of cannabis users who are actually meeting physical activity guidelines", and "That is higher than what we typically find among non-users. In our data, it seems like the relationship is potentially positive, and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of negative impacts of cannabis on exercise."
