  • Ross is just such an inspiration in my life and, I've probably watched this 30+ times this is pure gold the way this is shot,I wonder how he's doing now?

  • Everybody is built differently. This guys experience is NOT going to be your experience.
    Stop speaking in 'facts'.
    FOR ME…. Cannabis is not a performance enhancer.
    And it also intensifies pain.

    This video is spreading potentially dangerous info.

  • In the words of a classic Robin Williams skit: "How could ANYBODY say weed is a performance-enhancing drug?!? The only way it'd improve your performance is if you could see a giant fucking Hershey bar at the end of the run."

  • Right on!!!! I'm a tree climber I juggle chainsaws and make magic happen 100 feet in the air and I have a safety meeting several times a day. It helps me focus and allows me to see dangerous situations for my crew or myself. Being a climber is like being a professional athlete except you have no off season if you travel south for winter work like I do. Every climber and I mean EVERY CLIMBER I know blazes and all for the same reasons slows down the ADHD and PAIN haha. Multiple falls been crushed drug out of trees too many injuries to list got my medical permit in Colorado and Michigan and I couldn't do it without MJ. Started out climbing cellphone towers and iron working back when it was fun before the safety crap and 100% tie off rule and been climbing trees for the last 25+ years so far and still outspiking these young'uns haha Rock On brah

  • Cool video, cool dude, but I think him recommending everyone would benefit like he does from cannabis is misinformed. Not everyone has the exact, same physiological makeup and any diet, drug, lifestyle or otherwise isn't a one-size-fits-all. I definitely agree there's some great aspects of cannabis with certain people in certain circumstances, but he must be really stoned to think everyone needs it.

  • I’m a dancer and surfer and it helps a lot with my anxiety, cannabis in edible form every now and then just gives me that extra mile to help me calm myself when it’s particularly bad

  • His first time snowboarding was at the olympics that he won? Or just at the olympics either way that’s crazy

  • what kind of strain did he use? I still have to find a good strain for performance enhancing. Harlequin does make me stronger in lifting weight or more reps, but it sucks for cardio.

  • I believe that kind of business is good for you but honestly I don't think you should smoke more than a week in a row… to me personally I get lazy and I barely can't get out of bed after two weeks… and when I do everything is really hard even walking…

  • as a weed smoker for the past 10 years….I can add my two cents on the whole appetite thing

    if you smoke consistently and eat when high….your body will get used to that. So when I didnt smoke on a month long family vacation I was dyinggggg the first week. I couldnt sleep, couldnt eat etc

    now if your appetite has been low before chronic use of weed…then thats just how your body is and you might wanna get checked out by a G.I

  • I wouldn't be surprised if consuming lots of weed actually negatively impacts Ross' appetite because of tolerance and the downregulation of appetite hormones to compensate for the uptick in exogenous cannabinoids. I'm a daily marijuana enjoyer myself and have noticed this specific phenomenon, and there is also at least one sound study that documents the same thing. Anyone who's taken T-breaks can vouch that eating is hard for the first 2-4 days of smoking cessation. I do tend to follow an addiction pattern of dopamine spiking however, so it's possible that my experiences with food are more informed by my relationship between food and dopamine vs. my dopamine-spiking behavior patterns. Who knows. Everyone is different, but almost everyone can change things, so it's worth a thought if Ross Rebagliati/any readers have considered changing their consumption patterns to up-regulate appetite hormones and natural feeding cycles, there might just be room for improvement.

  • Real talk tho:
    He has no hunger in the morning because when he’s not baked, he’s not hungry. Hallmark of marijuana dependency. I’ve experienced it myself.
    Just sayin’

  • Bro after a point you just don’t get high. Your tolerance becomes so great that to reach a high after consistent smoking takes more and more weed.

  • I was told from a pro MLBer that it's very hard/ not doable to play baseball stoned, but he agreed basketball was fine. Anyone else say it's a no go for baseball and weed? I wouldn't know… Cheers

  • I would be on the floor asleep if I even a 1/4 of the amount of edibles he does in his coffee alone. Wow.
    Also. The entire interview would be us looking for things i.misplaced. my keys. What I was eating. My car.

  • what vice does best stick to real problems not this left wing bullshit. Cannabis is healthy and a safe recreational drug

  • You don’t eat because the cannabis your addicted to, you have to really stop for a while so your body goes back to normal

  • Oh my God….Safety meetings are a thing….everywhere?!
    I thought my homey and I were the only ones that had frequent safety meetings!

  • I absolutely support legalization and anybody who wants to get high and do whatever.
    But I get annoyed when people keep using the word medicate.
    It's a narrative that is annoying as hell.
    You have a disease? What's your diagnosis? who diagnosed you? Have you tried or are you open to other treatments in addition to or other than medication as we would recommend with most health issues?
    How come we recognize we want to have an alternative to advil but do not question the healthiness of 'medicating' with cannabis first thing in the morning and the whole rest of the day? That is some serious dependency on medication. We would most likely question this kind of dependency if it was happening with other meds.

  • Like many have said everything in moderation. I have been smoking way too much lately so i've been on a tolerance break and my body hates it. Feels like i have a eating disorder when im sober now and when i try to eat as much as i do high i feel like throwing uo every singles time.

  • honestly this reads more like a cautionary tale of how despite not being physically addictive you can become utterly dependent on cannabis to perform all of your basic daily functions after years of overuse. i vape almost daily, but not to this extent and i'm glad i watched this film, but the presentation is kind of ignoring the elephant in the room.

  • Medicated on cannabis and training in the gym is the best just zoned out and pushing it to failure and so far it's been beneficial life is great I feel great and look great it's honestly a performance enhancer. Its a mind to muscle connection for me

  • Being a stoner and a snowboarder rarely work hand and hand. Usually you want to be free of restraint so being binded to a single board would most likely cause hip irritation. When you use a set of ski's you are faced forward but when you snowboard you have to turn forward while keeping your feet pointed sideways.

  • Weed is illegal because its an exponentially better anti-inflammatory than aspirin. If you can grow it in your back yard, you're not spending your paycheck on opioids, etc

  • "with cannabis youre mind is actually processing things faster than it would normally " yeah guy try doing some math problems after a few vapes and get back to me on that
