Being an advocate for marijuana I have done much research in to this topic personally through personal use and discussing with other top athletes. I have had success using pot for pain from sparring(head trauma), tendinitis(soreness in the tendons) and sore muscles. As far as the head trauma doctors will NOT give pain relievers due to the fact with head trauma they can mask serious issues but will recommend my use of pot because if something major is wrong I would be able to tell and get help in time. Also due to the sedation effect at a cellular level it may slow the process of most major trauma issues.
Nick diaz has been in the public's eye for use and he is a top athlete completing in many marathons. And of course michael phelps won his gold medals as a user. Now I'm not saying that its a performance enhancing durg like steroids, well unless you are competing in a eating contest, but be smart and safe. Find what works for you.
