Get Out, Get High, and Go play

 Next time you’re outside smoking your strain of choice, get up and get active. Recent studies have begun to take away the stigma that cannabis and sports do not mix. One reason athletes may not want to smoke marijuana is because they believe it will decrease their lung function.  On the contrary, a study involving over 5,000 adults concluded that smoking a joint a day for 7 years does not negatively affect lung function, and can actually increase lung capacity. So next time you’re about to go for a run, light up some sativa and feel that runners high from the start.

  • Have you ever felt those jitters or that deep pit in your stomach right before the big game? Many Athletes swear that a couple bong hits will calm those nerves and allow you to perform the best you can. Neuroscientists from Brazil’s University of Sao Paulo recently performed a study where they found that “Cannabis smoking can be helpful for some activities such as extreme sports, as it improves muscle relaxation, reduces anxiety, and extincts fear memories leading to enhanced performance.”

The use of marijuana by professional athletes has been increasing drastically in recent years. With medical marijuana laws being passed in 28 states around the country, there are many athletes who retain injuries and prefer to subdue pain the natural way rather than using synthetic opiates. However, in most professional sport leagues, marijuana is still on the banned substance list!

Not only are players who need marijuana as medicine not allowed to use it, there are constantly a number of suspensions being handed out for those players who do smoke cannabis. In some cases, these suspensions can be more severe than those given out for much more serious crimes such as: domestic violence, DUI’s, and assault. In the NFL, wide receiver Martavis Bryant was given a season long suspension for smoking marijuana which he said he was using to treat his depression. To put that into perspective, nose tackle Josh Brent received a 10 game suspension in 2011 after pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated and manslaughter. Yeah you heard that right… clearly there is a problem with the professional sports system if you can kill someone and receive less of a punishment than you can for smoking a joint.

However, not everyone finds themselves transforming into a star athlete after getting high.  Many of us are the type of person who lights up and then just can’t find the motivation to get moving. Let’s face it, the only place we’re running to is the fridge. But there is good news!  Cannabis also improves muscle recovery time and provides users with a better sleep, so you can relax after a big workout. And for those of us who want to go out and have some fun with friends after a day of hard work, you won’t find yourself getting a beer belly with good ol’ Mary Jane! And the best part is when you wake up the next morning…. NO HANGOVER!

    Cannabis and exercise have some extremely beneficial compliments to each other. With more scientific research becoming available all the time, it is showing us more and more why this is our favorite plant. Marijuana is also becoming the pain reliever of choice for not only athletes but people all around the country. It is hard to imagine there will not be rule and regulation changes in professional sports concerning the use of marijuana. Next time your hanging out with friends smoking some ganja, throw something, kick something, run somewhere, or lift something. Don’t be afraid to get active!

Revolutionary Dispensary Interior Design

1. The design of Park Range Recreationals pays homage to the local hunting scene of Oak Creek, Colorado. Designed by The High Road Design Studio, this dispensary features a modern open floor plan, high ceilings, hickory floors, detailed photography of their flower, and tall windows to let in that natural sunshine. Park Range Recreationals’ flower is displayed discreetly in stainless steel canisters along the back wall, which employees use a library-style ladder to get to. Their product is also showed off on flat-screen TVs displaying information about individual strains.

2. Paper & Leaf, of Bainbridge Island, Washington, embraces a chic modern rustic design, courtesy of Johnson Squared Architecture. Paper & Leaf’s interior is open and minimalistic, embellished with vintage light bulbs dangling from elongated wires. The dispensary is furnished with a 12’ long oak table, tilted the “discovery station,” containing iPads programmed to help customers find the medical solution right for them. The large white walls are decorated with geometric wooden display cases, charmingly illuminating Paper & Leaf’s merchandise.

3. One of New York’s first dispensaries is coming in hot and stylish, thanks to the famously sustainable architect, Bruce Hampton. Columbia Care’s interior design is medical and sterile meets modern and trendy. The entrance of Columbia Care contains a front desk resembling that of an upscale doctor’s office. There is a waiting area, featuring simplistic, contemporary furniture facing a wall covered with educational medical descriptions of the dispensary and its merchandise. The entirety of the dispensary is covered with white marble floors, furnished with white plastic/wooden tables containing tablets meant for educating patients.

4. The McBride Company’s interior design work for Pineapple Express, of Los Angeles, CA, is our personal favorite. This dispensary’s design reflects that of a state-of-the-art Hawaiian resort. Pineapple Express’s interior pushes the envelope in that it isn’t just beautiful—it is so extraordinarily planned and designed that it succeeds in generating a unique branded retail experience… revolutionary in the medical marijuana industry. The unconventional embellishment lining the dispensary’s walls and ceilings feature artistic wooden structures, giant images of greenery, and an illuminated 3D pineapple sculpture. The shop’s product is encased in a funky wooden structure resembling a modern-day bookcase, perpendicular to a long table lined with electronic tablets designed to help customers make their purchase. The brand’s unique take on the industry could help revolutionize the old stigmatized view of marijuana in our country—we hope that Pineapple Express will get to live out their dream of going national!

Cannabis Cigars: Cannagars

On 4/20, Ariel Payopay will be introducing a new way for cannabis connoisseurs to celebrate special occasions: Leira’s Cannagars (cannabis cigars). No, we’re not talking about your average Dutch Master blunt—we’re talking about handmade, luxurious cannabis cigars that aren’t made for any old night spent with Netflix and takeout. Each Leira Cannagar burns for 5-6 hours, and the only ingredient is marijuana. The Cannagars are 6” long, filled with 10 grams of flower and 3 grams of rosin oil, all wrapped up in nothing but marijuana leaves. Each Cannagar is packaged in a clear tube sealed with royal purple wax, so as to represent an image of power and wealth.  Ariel isn’t the first to invent the cannabis cigar, but he is the first to master it as an art form. When he started making Cannagars, Ariel spent 3-4 hours rolling each one; he now has the process down to an hour, but each cigar still takes over a month to cure. These babies are set to hit the market in Washington state at a steep $200-300 each, but, rest assured, you will be paying for one of the purest, most luxurious cannabis experiences available to date. 

 

Until next time.
