There's a possibility that skateboarding will be in the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo. Most skateboarders are no stranger to skating in competitions (therefore, in front of a panel of judges), however all skateboarder’s participating in the Olympic games will have to comply with the International Olympic Committee’s World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)’s criteria of remaining free of all substances.
There’s a big difference between marijuana and hemp—though they’re both green and come from the same species of cannabis plant, the former contains high levels of the psychoactive substance, THC. Hemp contains little to no THC, and as such, has no recreational value. Hemp protein powder is made by separating and grinding the tiny seeds of the hemp plant. These nutty-tasting seeds are rich in oil, enzymes and protein, making them suitable for vegetarians, vegans or individuals who can’t tolerate dairy products.
Do you love smoking? Do you love the USA? Do you get bored after the first 20 minutes of Olympic footage? Great. This game will help liven up any Olympic viewing party! Stock up on sativa and hybrid flowers, medicated popcorn and some Cannabis Quenchers because it’s about to go down!
At the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, professional snowboarder Ross Rebagliati of Canada won the first Olympic Gold Medal in the snowboarding giant slalom. Prior to this, snowboarding hadn’t been a part of the Olympics in any capacity. Rebagliati said he “realized his sport was getting important because drug testing had been introduced.”
It is proven that cannabis can greatly enhance the experience of one’s workout regime and overall exercising experience so choosing the best method of doing so is important. Vaporizing is less harsh on the lungs and body, as vaporizers utilize one of two heating styles; convection or conduction, to produce an effective high with little to no exhalation of smoke.
This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to spend some time at Higher Path Boxing with owner Kenny Artis and watched him teach one of his classes. Kenny is a patient here at The Higher Path and it was a real treat to see how cannabis helps him stay in the kind of physical and mental shape he needs to be in to teach his classes throughout the week: “I strongly believe in boxing, it transfers into everything you do in life. It teaches you not to quit, it teaches you technique, it teaches you not to give up on yourself…it teaches you that all things are possible if you just put the time and the work in.”
The UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), is a professional MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) organization that began in 1993. The organization was founded on a Brazilian form of MMA known as Vale Tudo, which is Portuguese for “anything goes”. As the term would imply, these competitions allow various styles of martial arts to be used. In fact, most competitors would consider it a requirement to master multiple styles in order to have a fighting chance in the octagon. As far as how the organization fits into the sports world as a whole. One could easily argue that the UFC is the NFL or NBA of professional mixed martial arts. While combat sports themselves are a polarizing subject, the fact is that the UFC is now the largest Pay-Per-View event provider in the world, airing in over 800 million households. There is no question they have become a major influence in our society.
For years people have been under the impression that “runner’s high”—the feeling of euphoria you experience at the end of a workout—is caused by a release of endorphins. However, a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences indicates it is actually a product of endocannabinoids, not endorphins.
