Full Spectrum CBD vs. CBD Isolate

August 11th, 2018
full spectrum CBD oil

When it comes to cannabis products there is a lot to discuss. Options and availability are growing across the world and the number of canna-curious and new users are increasing rapidly. With so many different products it can be overwhelming to understand which product may be best for you. For millions of years, people and animals have been equipped with their own endocannabinoid system that regulates countless functions for overall health and wellness within the body. We have been designed to receive essential cannabinoids for centuries. This is why supplying our bodies with the essential compounds... Read More

Helikon

Helikon Gallery

Someone asked me recently what my favorite gallery was. I know, absurd. How could anybody pick one? It’s like trying to choose your favorite song, the best flavor of ice cream, or your preferred superpower. Every time one comes to mind, three more steps into the spotlight. It would have to be something imaginary. A skyscraper sized gallery with the first 30 floors full of emerging artists, 30 more of the greats, and then Meow Wolf straight up into the clouds, with a rotating stage that doubled as an elevator. On the bright side, even if Dr. Seuss doesn’t turn up reanimated and architecturally... Read More

When We Eat Matters

August 9th, 2018
Front load diet for better eating habits

We are busy! Competing for our time is a constant stream of notifications, emails, and texts, endless errands, work and family. Matching the hectic pace of living means that we might have bad eating habits. A growing body of research suggests that our bodies function optimally when we align our eating patterns with our circadian rhythms, the internal 24-hour cycles that tell our bodies when to wake up, when to eat, when to fall asleep. Studies show that chronically disrupting this rhythm — by eating late meals or nibbling on midnight snacks, for example — could be a recipe for weight gain and... Read More

How I Became a Full-Time Airstreamer: Part II

August 9th, 2018
Full-Time Airstreamer: Part II_Snowboarding

In part one of this post, which you can read here, I addressed why I lived a very regimented life for nearly two decades (and, yes, I’m not so naïve to think that I don’t still possess this quality – I simply know that I now manifest it in a way that feels healthy to who I am as a person). The second part of this post, which you are obviously reading at this very moment, addresses more specifically HOW I got here. To buy an Airstream and commit to a full-time nomadic lifestyle, more or less, was not an overnight decision. In fact, I started looking at them a year before actually biting the... Read More

Comparisons

Mindful Monday_Comparisons

No two granules of sand are alike, no two snowflakes identical, no two people the same. In all the ways we are extraordinarily similar, we’re distinctly unique. The similar composition with which we are comprised tends to allow us to more readily compare our self to others and this is typically done from a singular, outward view. However, each of our existences are fundamentally different where one minor detail within our field of experience has the ability to leave us miles apart from someone else of equal composition within any number of days, let alone years. One slight degree of separation... Read More

The Colorado CBD story that changed America’s views on cannabis

August 7th, 2018

If there’s one story that transformed American views toward medical cannabis and the plant in general, it’s that of young child epilepsy patient Charlotte Figi, whose life-threatening seizures are now successfully under control thanks to a specialized strain of cannabis that can be used to make CBD-rich, non-psychoactive cannabis oil. And it was in Colorado where the magic happened. Charlotte’s story was told on primetime television, as part of a CNN documentary that explored the new potential of medical cannabis as a treatment for severe and untreatable epilepsy. Charlotte has Dravet’s... Read More

Give These Women a Better Movie!

the spy who dumped me

As human beings, we’re all about categorization. That’s particularly true when it comes to how we view actors. Denzel Washington does righteousness. Bill Murray does sarcasm. Tom Cruise does focus. While we say we want something new from our film actors, what we often want is something that’s the same that feels new. It’s not fair, but there it is. So what happens when an actor isn’t easily categorized? Exhibit A is Mila Kunis. She’s been working steadily for several years, and while she’s mostly done comedy, she has an equal gift for drama. Her best films are probably Ted and Black... Read More

Weed for Weight Loss

August 4th, 2018
weed and weight loss

Despite being known for causing an increase in appetite, or “the munchies,” there is evidence suggesting you can lose weight with weed. A study in 2013 showed that obesity rates are much lower in cannabis consumers when compared to those who don’t consume cannabis. The study also concluded the results being present after they adjusted for age and sex. This isn’t a definitive conclusion, and more research needs to be conducted, but the results look promising. When we get into why weed can help you lose weight we need to look at a specific cannabinoid. The main cannabinoid being reported... Read More

Rule Gallery

Rule Gallery

As one of Denver’s oldest art galleries, Rule has earned a special place in the community. Founded over 30 years ago by Robin Rule, they’ve always stayed on the cutting edge. It’s tough for businesses of all kinds to last in Denver. The city has grown exponentially in recent years. Due to changing neighborhoods, Rule has always been on the move. They’ve had locations on South Broadway, next to the Dry Ice Factory in RiNo, and a few years ago they relocated once again to a small but welcoming spot at 530 Santa Fe Drive. Now a simple metal sign glints in the sunlight above a white brick storefront.... Read More
