Cannabis for Seniors

With the legalization of cannabis across more states and the stigma surrounding the plant and its users shifting, so has the demographic of people benefiting from the plant. According to the CDC, Americans aged 55-64 who use marijuana regularly has risen by 455%. Those aged 65 and older has risen by 333% from 2002-2014.

Who’s Playing High at The Super Bowl?

February 3rd, 2018

    It’s time for the Super Bowl! I wonder how many of the athletes playing are consuming cannabis on a regular basis. Chances are, quite a few. Cannabis and football has been a hot topic over the past few years as more former NFL pros have come out of the green closet to advocate for its use as a medicine. Highlighted in Season 2 of the Netflix show, Disjointed, the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition got to make a public service announcement calling for the use of cannabis over opioids. The Gridiron Cannabis Coalition’s “mission is committed to the evolution of the natural healing elements... Read More

Athletes train and fuel their bodies to operate at optimal levels in their sport. CBD is the non psychoactive compound found in cannabis. It is a non toxic, natural option that provides multiple mental and physical benefits. The recent announcement by the WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) to remove CBD from the banned substance list in 2018 provides a safer option to many athletes.

How 22 Pushups Could Save a Veteran’s Life

November 11th, 2017

It’s Veteran’s Day. This day, we as a nation, have set aside to honor our veterans for their service, their families for their sacrifices, and all those whose live’s have been touched by the tragic effects of war. Many of us have known a family member, friend, or co-worker who has served for our country. My grandfather is a veteran of the US Army who fought in the Korean War. My father is a disabled US Air Force veteran, and I have a very close friend, who I consider a brother, currently serving in the Army, overseas in the Middle East. In my previous life of finance, back in Missouri, I... Read More

I absolutely love the aroma of a freshly brewed dark roast coffee. I even enjoy the smell of walking through the coffee aisle at the grocery store! I like my coffee black, with no cream or sugar. I’ve come to savor the bitterness and usually will have two or even three cups in the morning. I typically consume cannabis early in the morning too, which is why I was excited when I first found out about CBD infused coffee. I was first... Read More

A study in 2014 set out to find out if THC is the cause of paranoia, as well as if THC could help identify the mechanisms that contribute to paranoia. 121 participants ages 21 to 50, with paranoid ideation received a placebo, THC, or THC preceded by a cognitive awareness explanation, in which participants were educated about possible effects prior to administration (Antley et al., 2014).

Shift to the Next Cannabis Gear

May 28th, 2017

With sales in 2016 topping over $1 Billion dollars for cannabis (in fact, Colorado hit that number in the first 10 months of the year), it’s no surprise that a large number of professionals are leaving corporate jobs for this new industry.  Professionals and entrepreneurs alike are seeing how lucrative this industry can be.   However, a lot of them are unfamiliar with the ins and outs of cultivation, retail setup, and even the legal aspects of working within the industry.   That’s where Shift Cannabis Co. comes in.   Shift Cannabis Co is based in Longmont, Colorado and is a consulting... Read More
