Get Healthy for Hemp History Week

June 9th, 2018
Hemp History Week

This weekend, the cannabis community is wrapping up Hemp History Week. What started as a movement to raise awareness and support for industrial hemp has quickly turned into the largest national grassroots effort to restore strong support for industrial hemp farming in the United States. Running June 4-10, this is the 9th annual campaign which brings together “grassroots organizers, leading hemp product manufactures, farmers, and advocates from all walks of life who are working to change federal policy on industrial hemp in the US.” Hemp has so many uses that it’s not only healthy for you,... Read More

Strides in CannaFitness

June 2nd, 2018
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

The Healing Touch

May 19th, 2018

I’ve always loved getting massages, but didn’t really understand all of the benefits it can provide. Similarly, when I first consumed cannabis I wasn’t aware of the effects it could positively make for my overall health and wellness. For someone like me who loves massages and cannabis, I jumped on the opportunity to try a cannabis infused massage from Primal Therapeutics while attending the Cannabis Health and Wellness Fair in Denver! After speaking to several cannabis companies who were at the wellness fair, I was offered a massage! Primal Therapeutics was attending and offering on site... Read More

Where Can I Get a Cannabis Massage in Colorado?

February 10th, 2018

Cindy Sovine and her team recently submitted their application to open Utopia, which will be the nation’s first full service cannabis spa. It will be a safe space for cannabis infused yoga and massages. They also plan to carry hemp products for health and beauty, as well as offering meditation, and acupuncture services. I attended the Seven Points World Tour, in Denver, where I had the pleasure of seeing Cindy speak in person. She has a very moving story, and her passion to advocate for the health benefits of cannabis is quite apparent. Although the application was just submitted recently, I’m... Read More

Taking a Stand! History of Protests in Boulder

January 10th, 2018

Boulder has been known for quite some time for being the ‘cradle of the hippie’, known for its dedication to nature and the environment, liberal ideologies, and a place for both artists and intellectuals to gather in a friendly, local space. In light of the recent holiday, and some of the protests we have seen around town, I thought it would be interesting to take a trip through history and remember some of the past protests in Boulder that has helped shape the city. In the 1950’s the Rocky Flat Plant was established in Denver, CO to manufacture and produce nuclear weapons during the Cold... Read More

Cheating on the Broncos

December 5th, 2017

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for the Denver Broncos, the Miami Dolphins and Jay Cutler added to our misery with an embarrassing 35-9 trouncing as the Broncos lost their eighth game in a row.  Miami came in with a five-game losing streak but their ineptitude was no match for Denver’s.  Trevor Siemian threw three interceptions, Isaiah McKenzie was given his job back as a punt returner only to fumble for the sixth time this season, leading to a Miami safety, and Matt Paradis continued the trend as he snapped the ball over Siemian’s head leading to safety number two. In a... Read More

POSTing Up in Boulder

November 3rd, 2017

Have you guys tried the Post Brewing Company’s new location in Boulder? I have! And, it’s now one of my favorite hangouts in town. Hot Chicken Loves Cold Beer, what more is needed to entice you?! The poultry and pilsners are calling your name! I was lucky enough to heed that beckoning, and make the Grand Opening on Thursday, November 2nd. The place was bumping, filled with boisterous people ready for a brew. An unbelievable atmosphere with unbelievable employees. Lead brewmaster, Nick Tedeschi, and head chef, Brett Smith, make a mean duo. Their combo of pipin’ hot chicken and... Read More

Ratio: Cultivating Carrot Craft Brews

October 20th, 2017

Bopping my head to the easy beats of Twin Peaks’ “Making Breakfast,” I entered my first Colorado brewery, Ratio Beerworks. Entering a Colorado craft brewery was a moment I had been waiting for since the first time my lips touched the unique flavor of a brewmaster’s craft. It was the beginning of my road trip, last September, and I was just high off of life, driving as free as one could be through our chaotic, yet magnificent country. From Boston to Denver, it was pretty much a straight shot, so I was definitely ready to get a brew in me. I stepped into a cluster of 80s vibes... Read More

Fighting ALS with Murder and Mystery

October 14th, 2017

I first started learning about cannabis having neuroprotective properties after witnessing my wife have a seizure. Having never witnessed a seizure before, and not knowing how long it would last, or what to do after, it was a frightening experience. As terrifying as it may have been, it was the catalyst which began our research into the medicinal properties of cannabinoids. What I’ve learned since then has been remarkable. The cannabis plant has the potential to help several conditions, and improve the quality of life for those who have been diagnosed with lifelong illnesses, but not all diseases... Read More

Why I Choose Hemp

August 25th, 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

After reading this you’ll walk away with a few easy strategies that will not only save you time in the kitchen, but your mind and body will thank you for providing it with the natural medicine of whole foods.

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

OK Colorado, Time to Relax on the Packaging Laws

June 13th, 2017

Until recently Colorado’s little experiment has been overseen by a group charged with coordinating efforts to implement regulation for Colorado’s recreational and medical marijuana industries. This was a group of lawmakers and medical professionals made up to aid in the roll out of legalization. The group was recently disbanded by the governor, so it can be assumed that he feels the experiment has worked thus far. Hopefully, this also means that the cannabis industry will get a little break. Every six months or so, since 2014, this industry faces changes that cause our entire business model... Read More

Starting at Third Base – I Don’t Know

June 6th, 2017

Starting at Third Base – I Don’t Know It was known as the classic Abbott and Costello comedy sketch, confusingly funny as the ballplayers included names like Who at first, What on second, and I Don’t Know at third base. But as the Rockies enter the month of June in second place in the NL West, life seems to be imitating (comedic) art. I recently took an informal poll of my friends and relatives, all with decent baseball knowledge, and asked the simple question. Who plays third base for the Colorado Rockies? The response included many wrong names, plenty of mispronunciations, and lots... Read More

Siemian or Lynch?

May 30th, 2017

It is never too early to discuss Bronco football, and the topic is a familiar one. Who should be the Broncos starting quarterback on opening day? Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch? The Siemian doubters may question his health, his 7th round pedigree, and his questionable upside. The Lynch supporters may look at the strong-armed, 6’7, first rounder Lynch as the answer to the offensive woes of last year. But here are five reasons that Trevor Siemian is the obvious choice for opening day. 1) Experience – Trevor Siemian has started in 14 games for the Denver Broncos. That generally translates... Read More

Colorado Rockies – Five things that are bound to happen

May 16th, 2017

Almost forty games into the season and the Colorado Rockies are sitting in first place in the NL West. First baseman, Mark Reynolds is on fire (.331, 12 HR, 31 RBIs), Nolan Arenado is still the best third baseman in the game, and the young pitching staff is throwing well. This could be the year…. I want to believe that too. But as you sit there with your purple shaded glasses on, my job is to explain to you the harsh reality of how the rest of the season will sadly progress. 1) Injuries. Pitchers just can’t make it through a season anymore. Tyler Anderson and Jon Gray are already on the... Read More
