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

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

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
