Marijuana while training Jiu Jitsu

Training BJJ While On Marijuana

Marijuana use while training is a prevailing subject within sectors of the Jiu Jitsu community. At a 10th Planet school I trained at it was quite common a few guys would be high while rolling. In fact there is now an event that has the athletes get high and have matches (High Rollerz BJJ Tournament) .

Personally, I once knew a guy who was a very good grappler (still is). He was always very calm before competing. I said “Man how do you stay so relaxed before a match?”

He said “I’m nervous like everyone else. I just smoke marijuana and it keeps me extra relaxed.”

His style was not very aggressive, more of a counter grappler and he swore by smoking marijuana.

I know of another guy who used it and said he was too passive in matches but it helped him in practice so he stuck to using it in practice for creative purposes. He uses edibles.

Some people are totally against and would never consider it.
