    Anyone else have this issue? I love being high and rolling... but man does it suck to be sober and roll. Weed is pretty much a crutch at this point.

    It’s probably 90% mental but damn I really enjoy rolling while stoned

    Whenever people say this, I mentally file it away next to "I'm actually a better driver when I'm drunk."

    Meh. I like smoking weed. I often smoke weed before BJJ. But I don't feel high by the time I finish warming up.
    But yeah... Try rolling without weed. Maybe your memory is just better sober and you weren't really doing much better stoned :p

    I wouldn’t object to a random person or even a training partner doing it, that’s their business.

    That said: whether it’s steroids, weed, or anything else... being reliant on a substance in order to feel up to a task, any task, is a red flag, in my opinion. You should be able to do your thing without needing a drug.

    I often enjoy smoking some weed and I've tried it for a long period of time before class. I feel like it makes me slower when learning new techniques and concepts. While rolling it seems like a hit or miss, sometimes I feel good and in a flow state while other times I feel a little out of it. It might be better to just micro-dose (take 1 small hit) or not blaze at all. And this is coming from a heavy/daily user

    Guys can still be pretty good while in pain, but maybe you could do it. How about Kron Gracie?

    Its all mental,you THINK you are doing better because whatever you do or think on weed feels better.. In reality you arent doing any better. I have a friend whos been a purple belt for like 10 years,if he didnt smoke he wouldve be a black belt by now.
