Cannabis and Fitness Research Goes Mainstream

May 4th, 2019

Cannabis consumers are typically portrayed as lazy, and have had the couch locked stigma association in mainstream media over the years. With new research from the University of Colorado Boulder released, the topic about cannabis and fitness is going mainstream. The stigma about cannabis consumers being lazy is being shattered by science. Men’sHealth, Maxim, The Denver Channel, Medical Marijuana, Inc., MSN and The Denver Post are just a few of many discussing the recent research. The research surveyed 600 adult cannabis consumers from states where cannabis is legal for adult use. When asked if... Read More

Self Care Sunday Series

March 17th, 2018

Self care may be the most important concept to overall health and wellness. Now the community in Boulder, CO has another opportunity to care for their body and mind, while incorporating cannabis, mindfulness, and activities that promote growth and self love. Once a month, You Canna Be Well is hosting Self Care Sundays at the Phil Lewis Art Gallery and Studio. Each class will have its own theme, or focus, and will encourage participants to practice self care. I had the pleasure of attending the very first of these Self Care Sundays, which was Defining Your Purpose for 2018. The goal of the event... Read More

What Are You Dankful for This Year?

November 29th, 2017

This article may come at you a little late this year, being that Thanksgiving was last week, but it is never too late to be thankful, or dankful this season. I normally like to use this column as an outlet to bemoan about something that most people would bend over backward for. It can be fun to sit back and air my grievances about the weed industry, after all, it is the landscape I see every day. Fortunately, the industry I work in is hot right now, so it affords me this outlet. No grievances today though, just love. I am dankful for all the amazing growers out there. Indoor farmers and outdoor... 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

Wake and Wellness

August 12th, 2017

For me, the morning is the most important part of my day. I like to wake up early, around 5:00 or 6:00, to enjoy the sunrise and peacefulness the morning has to offer. This time sets my mind and body for the rest of the day, so I try to make it as productive and beneficial to get it started on good vibes. However, I wake up daily to one of my cats crawling all over me and meowing in my face until I get out of bed. He really likes his snacks and to be let outside on the deck to watch the birds. I then start the coffee and consume cannabis. I suffer from idiopathic epilepsy with grand mal seizures,... Read More

420 Games Starts First State Chapter in Colorado!

August 5th, 2017

The National 420 Games came to Denver in July and was a huge success! Having personally completed every race of the 2017 tour, I must honestly admit Colorado was my favorite so far! So many great people, from all over the country, came out to help break the stigma of cannabis. As the nation begins to see more cannabis athletes, and more individuals who consume cannabis as part of a healthy and active lifestyle, start to come our of the green closet to promote its benefits, more people are wanting to learn about CannaFitness, or cannabis and athletics. This is bringing them to events like The 420... 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
