The Marijuana for Medical Professionals 2018 conference

The Marijuana for Medical Professionals 2018 conference in Denver started on Sunday morning, October 14th, wrapped up at the end of the day on Tuesday, October 16th, and it was incredible! I spent three packed days soaking up valuable cannabis education from physicians, nurses, and other leading experts in the industry. With the majority of these presentations being accredited for continuing medical and nursing education credits, it was one of the most comprehensive and informative conferences I’ve had the pleasure of attending. On top of learning so much, I’m very happy to report there was... Read More

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

What’s NEXT? An Art Gallery

October 18th, 2017

Next Gallery has a good variety of artists. There is photography and graphic arts, interesting mixed media, embroidery, 3-d art and more. The main artists that have exhibits up there currently are Chris Buske with “Crossing Borders,” and Jordan Lyn with “The End.” Of course there are works by other artists scattered around the gallery such as some of the mixed media work of Adrienne DeLoe, whose pieces incorporating natural elements into her art never fail to amaze me! The bulk of the pieces were smaller pieces from Buske consisting of photos, sketches, and graphics which... 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

I’ll Tell You About Teller Street Gallery

October 5th, 2017

Teller Street Art Gallery and Studios is on 38th Street in Wheat Ridge, CO, west of Denver. It’s a hidden gem! The place is down-to-earth and fun but also has some very talented and innovative art in the gallery. The great thing about Teller is that it is a very functional space. Gallery owner and artist Nicole Anderson and fellow artist Kaylie instruct art classes to the public for a reasonable price-they are what are known as the paint-and-sip art classes generally lasting no more than 3 hours, at the end of which the participant has a finished painting to take home with her at the end... Read More

Access Gallery: Art for the Heart

September 8th, 2017

You will find many choices when you want to visit an art gallery in Denver, in fact you may be overwhelmed not only with the variety of art galleries but the art districts! My first stop was the Access Gallery in the Santa Fe Arts District just south of downtown. I think Access Gallery stands out to me because it’s doing something very worthwhile with the art program for people that are often overlooked or even shunned. Access Gallery is unique, it is a nonprofit that has been in operation since the mid-seventies, all the work is done by adults with disabilities who are given an opportunity... Read More

420 Games Starts First State Chapter in Colorado!

August 4th, 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... Read More
