Top 5 Activities to Combine with Cannabis

August 30th, 2020

Despite the stereotype about cannabis making people lazy, cannabis pairs perfectly with several activities. Physical activity naturally stimulates the ECS by producing its own endogenous cannabinoid, anandamide. Anandamide is known for causing the euphoric sensation after exercise, often referred to as the runner’s high. Consuming cannabis can then compliment physical activity by supplying your ECS with exogenous cannabinoids, like THC and CBD. Here are five of the top activities to combine with cannabis. 1. Hiking Hiking and cannabis have long been a favorite for many. Since cannabis hasn’t... Read More

Triathletes are weird, we know.

July 30th, 2020

“Click, clack, click, clack”.. You are standing in line at Amante Coffee and you peer behind and expect to see a horse, or maybe a girl in high heels. Actually maybe it is a tap dancer. You first look down  and notice glossy white shoes, high socks, and the most muscular legs you have ever seen on a chick. As you continue to gaze up you soon realize that this hairless girl is actually a transvestite! The perfectly smooth legs had you thinking one way, but the tight spandex shorts quickly revealed the other! You continue to scan upward and soon realize that this transvestite is actually... Read More

Endurance Conspiracy, because Endurance Athletes Do Have a Sense of Humor

July 26th, 2020

Endurance sports are rigorous and demanding, which means athletes are always focused, serious, and mostly boring. “We are purveyors of fun.” -Endurance Conspiracy False. Behind tough and blister-ridden exteriors, endurance athletes like triathletes, cyclists and long distance runners all seem to share a similar light-heartedness and love for their lifestyles. The ability to find joy in the hard work required from these sports makes the endurance sport community closer, faster and stronger. Endurance Conspiracy, an endurance-sport-apparel-retailer in Boulder, manufactures hilarious,... Read More

Wake and Wellness

July 7th, 2020

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

June 15th, 2020

“Running clears my head and is a great way for me to relieve stress. I try to get out every day for either physical or mental reasons. I love it because it gives me a freedom unlike anything else. I can zone out completely or focus on certain issues and work it out in my head. Most importantly, beer tastes that much better after a solid run.” Thanks for the insight Josh!  Read More

Why I Choose Hemp

May 20th, 2020

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

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

April 16th, 2020

I met Mike outside Boulder Bikesmith as he was trying to fit his mountain bike into his SUV. A common site in Boulder! Originally from New Mexico, Mike and his wife moved here from San Diego in 1997. “We came out for a job opportunity, went up Flagstaff, took a look over the the front range and that was all she wrote. We never went to the beach in San Diego, we were always more oriented towards the mountains, so this was a perfect fit.”  He was a runner, qualifying for the Boston Marathon. Mike didn’t run it because he got more interested in trail running. Another reason to... Read More

CU Boulder Professor Says People Exercising Outdoors Should Be Farther Than 6 Feet Apart

April 1st, 2020

Jose Jimenez, a professor of chemistry at the University of Colorado Boulder, says that people exercising outdoors, an activity that is allowed under Gov. Polis’ stay-at-home order, should be exercising much farther than the designated 6 feet apart. Jimenez said, “The best analogy is when someone is smoking tobacco or marijuana. Think about how many times you have walked by people and smelled tobacco or pot smoke that someone else had exhaled. Often, those people were farther away than six feet.” “If that happens, we are inhaling the contents of someone’s lungs with limited dilution.... Read More

March 3rd, 2018

With 11 races scheduled this year, including an 8 person Ragnar Relay over 2 days, the MJFITNUT Team will be logging in some serious miles. Each one of those miles spent training and competing will be fueled by cannabis. Does this mean cannabis flower and concentrates, or edibles and topicals? All of the above.

On Memorial Day last year, over 50,000 runners blanketed the city of Boulder as they competed in the Bolder Boulder 10K.
