The Cannabegrateful Yoga Challenge

November 25th, 2017

I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving. With it being a time when we all reflect on what we’re thankful for, it feels fitting to give some thanks of my own, and to share about my recent experience in The Cannabegrateful Yoga Challange. This Instagram challenge, hosted by Greenlove Denver and Canna_Sam, started on November 13th and lasted for 7 days. Each day there was a specific yoga pose, but the challenge was more than just taking a photo of your practice. The challenge also consisted of digging deeper to share something we were grateful for each day. The yoga pose line up: Day 1- seated... Read More

Why I Choose Hemp

August 26th, 2017

As a Cannabis Athlete and someone who believes health is wealth, I’m consistently looking at my nutritional intake and hemp seeds are one of the most nutritious seeds in the world. My friend and professional MMA fighter, Adam Meredith, also consumes hemp as one of his primary protein sources. They are a complete protein and contain all of the essential amino acids our bodies need to survive, including the 10 we must get from our diet. They are also packed full of vitamins, enzymes, and have a perfect ratio of essential fats omega 3 and 6. Hemp seeds are easily digestible and have no known allergens.... Read More

CannaFitness is the Game Changer

July 29th, 2017

I would like to take a moment to introduce the addition of myself to the weekly CannaFitness column. My name is Heather DeRose, and together my husband, Antonio DeRose, and I own and operate Marijuana Fitness Nutrition at mjfitnut.com. We have been working jointly on this column for quite some time now, and I am excited to have been brought on board officially to alternate in producing articles bi-weekly, where I will bring you a female’s perspective inside the rapidly growing world of cannabis and fitness. Being a sponsored Cannabis Athlete myself, I will share with you my experiences about... Read More

Combining Push Ups with Lighting Kush Up

July 22nd, 2017

Marijuana and training are one of my favorite combos. I really enjoy a good run after an uplifting strain, like Blue Dream, or even going into the gym on a heavy strain like Gorilla Glue, and swinging some kettlebells around. Either way, the results are the same. A sense of focus and determination fueled by proper nutrition and cannabinoids, followed by a euphoric release of endorphins as my autonomic nervous system is jumpstarted by the physical activity. This is another reason I consume cannabis as part of my health and wellness routine, which is to calm my central nervous system after training.... Read More

The Best Bud in Colorado, The Laurel Rosebud

July 15th, 2017

Having been a cannabis consumer for over 15 years, I’ve smoked a lot of greens over that time, but this may have been the most fun I’ve ever had on them. The day itself was absolutely beautiful, with perfect weather for the occasion. My wife and I arrived early, and had no idea we were about to experience some of the best bud in Colorado. Looking back, I can’t remember laughing that hard in a long time. It very well could have been the pre-rolls from Medicine Man, or maybe it was meeting former NFL athletes like Robert Griffith, Isaac Keys, and Eugene Monroe. Either way, we had the best time! The... Read More

Break The Stigma Fitness Opening!

July 8th, 2017

(Feature photo of Jennessa taken by Kenesha Facello) Denver, CO is the world’s current capital of weed, and, with Denver being one of the fittest places in America, it’s no surprise to see so many people training with cannabis, and making gains. As consuming cannabis as an athlete increases in popularity, we’re seeing the growth of the CannaFitness industry in many forms. This includes the famous 420 Games Denver, and the opening of Break The Stigma Fitness, a cannabis friendly fitness studio opening July 23rd, with a pre-opening pary on July 9th. The studio will offer fitness classes,... Read More

The Normalization of Cannabis Through Sports

July 1st, 2017

Last night, I had the pleasure of viewing Ricardo Baca’s screening of his new project, Subculture, at Denver’s SeriesFest. It was after the screening, during the audience Q&A, when I was inspired by some of the comments made my Baca and his team. Baca is a legend in the world of cannabis, but for anyone who might need context, some of his accomplishments include being the world’s very first marijuana editor, and spearheading the formation of The Cannabist, a division of the Denver Post. Fortune magazine ranked Baca as one of the seven most powerful people in American cannabis while the... Read More

420 Games Goes the Extra Mile High in Denver

June 24th, 2017

(Free entry/Discounted tickets here!) There is a new industry taking the cannabis community by storm, and it’s CannaFitness, also referred to as cannabis and athletics, or cannabis and sports. With so many professional athletes, and everyday gym goers, coming out of the green closet, it’s making it very clear to the public that cannabis consumers are not lazy. Having so many people stand up, to end the age old stereotype of cannabis making you lazy and stupid, people from all walks of life now have a distinguished flag to rally behind. That flag is the 420 Games, and they’re coming to Denver... Read More

Let’s Talk Topicals

June 17th, 2017

I beat myself up physically, by challenging myself in training so I can be stronger, faster, and better than the day before. Training isn’t just the work you put in at the gym, or on the track, it’s also a lot about recovery. I consume cannabis in many different ways, for different reasons, as detailed in last week’s article, Consuming Cannabis as an Athlete. This week we’re going to take a closer look at topicals, how they play a role in training and recovery, and what you can do to start using topicals into your everyday wellness routines. I have had the chance to experiment and try... Read More

Consuming Cannabis as an Athlete

June 11th, 2017

Before moving to Colorado, I only had access to smoking flower as a form of consumption, unless I wanted to attempt my own edibles. Now, I have the freedom to choose from all sorts of consumption methods, and I’ve had time to experiment with them all, in order to find out what works best for my body. As mentioned in Training with Cannabis, we all need to determine what works best for us, when fitting cannabis into our wellness routines. We talked last week about Pairing different Strains with different activities and goals. This week, we’ll dive into choosing the right method of cannabis consumption... Read More
