Colorado Cannabis Athletes go Coast to Coast

September 1st, 2018

My wife Heather and I just returned to our home in Colorado from Miami, Florida this week. We were speaking at the U.S. Cannabis Conference and Expo about epilepsy, and the benefits of cannabis for fitness. We’ve had the opportunity to speak several times in Colorado this year, but this was our first time educating on the East Coast! In April of this year we spoke about the benefits of hemp for athletes at the Terpenes and Testing Magazine World Conference, in San Jose, CA. Now that we’ve had the chance to speak in Florida, we’ve officially covered the U.S. coast to coast in our efforts to... Read More

August 18th, 2018

We are always looking for ways to take care of our physical health, whether it’s with a new supplement or exercise routine, or simply living a better lifestyle. But we don’t always give the same care and attention to our mental health, which is just as – if not more – important. Without being at peace mentally, the mind can play tricks to make life more difficult or even unbearable. With the World Health Organization now estimating that depression affects 300 million people around the globe, and National Institute of Mental Health figures showing that about 40 million American adults (around... Read More

Top 5 Benefits of CBG for Fitness

July 21st, 2018

One of my jobs in the cannabis industry is a product tester. I recently had the chance to try out some of the Northern Lights flower from Leafs By Snoop, and its potency test came back with 1.2% CBG. I know a lot about the benefits of THC and CBD, but not so much about CBG. This made me do a little research to find out how I could benefit from CBG as an athlete. What I found out was great to know, and I wanted to pass along some bullet points. So, what is CBG, and how can it help you with your fitness goals? CBG stands for cannabigerol and is one of the lesser talked about cannabinoids in the cannabis... Read More

Cannafitness

If you didn’t already know, I’m a cannabis athlete. What does that mean? I am a trail runner, based in Colorado. I use cannabis for epilepsy and my overall health and wellness. Using cannabis before and after physical exercise is extremely beneficial. When I consume before a workout, I’m able to complete the exercise with less pain and more focus, for longer durations. Consuming after exercise is beneficial as well. Cannabis is a powerful anti-inflammatory, which makes it perfect to use for recovery after training or a race. CannaFitness is cannabis and fitness combined. I run with my husband,... Read More
