  • Rewind CBD with Rodney Wallace
    Rewind CBD with Rodney Wallace. In 2017 Things were looking up for Rodney. He had just signed with New York City FC, he was clean, and with his mindset to participate in Costa Rica’s team for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Nothing but clear skies ahead. That is until he started feeling a pain in his hip so horrid that he was afraid he wouldn’t be able to walk, and much less play, again. He couldn’t even play with his own daughter. He started taking prescribed pain medication again because it wasn’t like he had much choice, but he used it responsibly and it helped. So he started taking CBD as a part of his routine. Besides his hip, he’d massage his knees or his back with it and felt a lot better. Before bed, he took the tincture and woke up feeling great. He also took the medicine to the locker room, but there he was forced to hide it. “This seems childish,” he would think. “That I'm hiding something that's so good for me, that’s supposed to be legal.” It certainly is. By this stage, he was at the pinnacle of his career, with no intention of quitting any time soon. His dream of being on the national team for Costa Rica came true. It was everything to him.

  • Snowboarding And Cannabis with Greta Gaines
    Snowboarding pioneer Greta Gaines became the face of the sport when it was dominated by men. A former competitive skier, Gaines’s teenage fearlessness and punk rock ethos made her an icon, even if her attitude turned off early 90s television sponsors like MTV and ESPN. Cannabis, she says, has always been part of her lifestyle and she thinks that snowboarders often have a copacetic relationship with weed, even if they’re not entirely sure why they’re getting stoned. Gaines remembers being in the back country hills of Jackson Hole, Wyoming in 1987 — just as the snowboarding scene was really hitting the mainstream. Cannabis brought the disparate riders together.

  • Health And Wellness After The Game
    Health and wellness after the game Ex-Seahawk Lofa Tatupu have joined a growing list of athletes that have gotten involved in the cannabidiol (CBD) business. The former Pro Bowl linebacker announced the launch of his new CBD startup, called "ZoneIn." The venture, backed by a team of professional athlete investors and partners, seeks to help adults strive for optimum health and wellness in their day-to-day lives. The loudest pro-marijuana/CBD voices have been ex-players. Former Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin told Bleacher Report in an interview released earlier this month that marijuana was the only way he could effectively deal with anxiety during his playing career, telling the outlet, “there’s not a game that I played in that I wasn’t high.” Tatupu, who retired from the NFL in 2010 after six seasons with Seattle, said he didn’t start using CBD products until after his playing days, around 2017. But he said that injuries began wearing him out physically and mentally after performing at the top of his game in the first three seasons of his career when he made three Pro Bowls and received a first-team All-Pro nod. He sustained a “number” of concussions during his career and has had 10 surgeries in his life — eight of which came directly from football. Tatupu said he’s sharper now mentally thanks to CBD and has been able to live a more healthy lifestyle.

  • An Alternative To Opiate Painkillers
    An Alternative To Opiate Painkillers with Floyd Landis. Former pro cyclist Floyd Landis started a new career producing “high-quality cannabis products” under the brand name Floyd’s of Leadville. Since Colorado legalized recreational marijuana in 2014, the pot market has since grown to a billion-dollar industry—and Landis appears happy to be on board. Floyd’s of Leadville will specialize in pesticide-free cannabis oil “from high altitude growers using an industry-leading, pharmacy grade CO2 extraction process.” Early products revealed on Twitter show two applications of the oil: a topical cream that can be absorbed through your skin and pre-filled vapor cartridges. A huge component of Floyd’s of Leadville’s mission is to market the products as an alternative to opiate painkillers and other addictive prescription drugs. And according to the Floyd’s of Leadville Twitter account, Landis is even offering a limited discount to USA Cycling members: 15 percent off, if you show your license. According to a report this year from ArcView Market Research, the cannabis industry is expected to grow by 25 percent this year alone and eventually total $22 billion in sales by 2020. Floyd’s of Leadville will officially launch its line of vapes, edibles, and other cannabis products Thursday, June 30 at Club Vinyl in Denver. The event is limited to 300 guests and RSVPs are expected at FloydsofLeadville.com.

  • CTE and Cannabis: How It Can Save Football
    CTE and Cannabis: How it can save football with Kyle Turley. Diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) due to the 100-plus concussions he received during the 10 years he played as an NFL offensive lineman, Kyle Turley struggled with pharmaceutical addiction, violent thoughts, and suicidal tendencies — until he started taking medical marijuana. “It saved my life,” he says. “I wouldn’t be where I am today, I would not have my family, my kids, my house, everything I have right now, if not for cannabis.” To help save other lives, Turley founded the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition to use his story and those of other players to advance the idea of marijuana as a valid medicine for neurological conditions and other athletic injuries. “This plant has to be set free,” he says. “We have people committing suicide in football and other sports. How far do we have to go?”

    Knowing the value of the plant and the hurdles that the government and big pharma has placed on marijuana, Kyle has created Neuro XPF, a lab tested, federal guideline compliant, THC-Free, CBD (Hemp derived) cannabis supplement focused on Bioavailability. CBD (cannabidiol) has shown in studies to have neuro-protective and antioxidative properties that could address a myriad of maladies facing our Military and NFL Veterans while supporting the general health and well being of all aged athletes.

  • Marijuana: The Performance Enhancer
    Marijuana: The Performance Enhancer with Ross Rebagliati. Ross is a Canadian professional snowboarder, Olympic Gold Medal Winner and founder of Legacy Brands, a CBD consumables company and Ross' Gold, a medical cannabis merchandise company. Ross Rebagliati is a firm believer that Marijuana is a performance enhancer, and that usage can be helpful for some activities such as extreme sports, as it improves muscle relaxation, reduces anxiety, and extincts fear memories (e.g., negative experiences) leading to enhanced performance. It also improves sleep time and recovery, which may favour performance when an athlete is facing multiple competitions in a short period of time. Ross believes that Cannabis has many benefits of which CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the biggest. CBD has very powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Reducing inflammation helps to better manage the aches and pains an athlete’s body chronically endures. It also has a calming effect reducing stress and anxiety which are two more realities of being an athlete. In January 2013, Rebagliati and his business partner, Patrick Smyth, launched Ross' Gold, a medical marijuana business. Ross' Gold's primary focus remains on establishing a brand in Canada and gaining a foothold in the industry under the federal government's new regulations. Under the new Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, cannabis would be treated as any other narcotic used for medical purposes, enabling patients to acquire products as needed based on a health-care practitioner's prescription.
