Arise

May 26th, 2018

Once again summer has come. The season of tan lines, patios, dog parks and feature hikes. The bicycle shops are stocked up on spandex and everyone and their mother is training for a 5k (I believe in you and you’re killing it). A-Basin has once more closed for the season, so the parking lot volleyball games will be moved to Cheesman Park until two weeks before Halloween when everyone becomes preoccupied with costume ideas. I have a kind of Groundhog Day test for summer, it’s not official until you hear someone say “You call this hot? I’m from Texas!”. Not to worry though, when ski season... Read More

Awareness

May 21st, 2018

Each one of us is fully capable of accomplishing anything, and more importantly, everything we put our mind to. We have desires, dreams, and ambitions for our time here. Accomplishing them is no easy task, but we are aptly suited for our challenge. We truly have limitless potential residing inside. It’s lying dormant, desperately waiting for us to set the wheels in motion, enabling it to crack through the surface where it can be put to use in our pursuits. At times there can be a disconnect between our desires, dreams, and ambitions, and our current reality or perception of it. Life happens,... Read More

Legendary Leader

October 7th, 2017

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the world premier of the documentary exploring marijuana’s use and evolution as a plant and industry, “The Legend of 420”. The film was produced and directed by Emmy and Academy Award-nominated, Peter Spirer, with Rugged Entertainment and XLRator Media. The premier in Denver, now the hub for hemp and marijuana movie premiers known as Hollyweed, was made possible by Amy Bourlon-Hilterbran, the founder and CEO of Millennium Grown Broadcast Network. Millennium Grown brought this premier to Denver, and contains online content about marijuana and hemp... Read More

Marijuana, Meditation, and Mindfulness

September 9th, 2017

For me, marijuana has always been a means of mental stress relief. Before I became a cannabis athlete, I consumed marijuana regularly to help with anxiety and stress. Before moving to Colorado, from Missouri in 2015, my life consisted of 60-70 hour work weeks in corporate finance, and if I wasn’t in the actual office, I was at a dinner, or an auction, or some other event related to my work. The success was nice, but the stress was overwhelming. After long days and/or nights at the office, I would come home and calm my nervous system with the relaxing smoke of marijuana. Being in Missouri at the... Read More
