Wake and Bake with Intention

Wake and Bake with Intention

Starting the day off on the right foot is essential to living a healthy and active lifestyle. The beginning of every productive day is started always by intention, never by accident.

The Power of Visualization

The Power of Visualization

There’s something incredibly magical about running while high.  It’s helped me control my mind to run efficiently and reach my goals – whether that is a certain distance, making a time, staying at a certain pace, etc.

Heather Announced 2nd at Portland’s 420 Games!

Heather Announced 2nd at Portland’s 420 Games!

The Portland 420 Games was the third race on this year’s tour, and although it looked like we might get rained out, the weather held off, and it turned into another incredible day for all those who joined us at Sellwood Park. The crowd in Portland was alive with excitement as we gathered to celebrate awareness, and represent responsible use, joining together in The 420 Game’s mission to show that cannabis users are NOT lazy, unmotivated, or “stoners”, and to de-stigmatize the millions who use cannabis in a healthy and responsible lifestyle. We run, walk, bike, skateboard, and some even push their children in strollers or walk their pets for 4.2 miles at these events for those millions of people, and for...

Heather Takes 3rd at Seattle’s 420 Games!

Heather Takes 3rd at Seattle’s 420 Games!

Jim McAlpine and his team couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to host this year’s Seattle 420 Games. The Warren G Magnuson Park was a sunny paradise for all those who attended to aide in The 420 Games’s mission to forge a new outlook on cannabis, and a respect for cannabis users. With almost no clouds in the sky, there was absolutely none of Seattle’s notorious rain, making it the perfect day to participate in the nation’s first, and only, cannabis athletic event series!

Most 420 Games events start with a yoga warm up, but before we got our stretch on, we all took a moment to...

Cannabis Strains & Athletic Gains

Cannabis Strains & Athletic Gains

Sour Diesel. Blue Dream. Granddaddy Purple. OG Kush. Gorilla Glue. The list of strains available on the market is seemingly endless, and grows longer every day as growers cross breeds to create new ones. The selection of strains differs at each dispensary, but the problem remains the same, you still have to figure out which one to buy. With so many choices, this can be overwhelming, even for a veteran consumer like myself. That’s why...

Joint. Gym. Repeat. Training with Cannabis

Joint. Gym. Repeat. Training with Cannabis

How do you incorporate cannabis into your training? For those interested in learning how to include cannabis into their fitness regimen as part of a balanced, overall health and wellness routine, this is one of the most common questions that gets asked. I’m always happy to share my habits and routines, but it’s nice to get a few different perspectives. Today we’re going to touch base on how I use cannabis as part of my training program, followed up by recent testimonial from retired professional athletes like Bas Rutten, Eben Britton, and Eugene Monroe when they appeared as the sports panel for Green Flower Media’s Cannabis Health Summit this May. Then we’ll end on what this means for you, and...

The Days of The Lazy Stoner Are Over

The Days of The Lazy Stoner Are Over

Welcome all, to the CannaFitness weekly column, where you will learn all you need to know about cannabis and fitness, and get an exclusive inside look into this exciting emerging industry. Being a sponsored cannabis athlete myself, I know how fast CannaFitness is moving through the world. Even though the concept of using cannabis in association with athletics and fitness may seem new to most, I know first hand they’ve had a close relationship for a very long time. Only recently, in the past decade especially, has this topic slowly gained public momentum as the taboo and stigma of cannabis use has declined, resulting in more and more professional athletes, and everyday people, starting to share and be honest about their use of this incredible plant.

Hollywood has painted the picture of a pot smoker as...

Had a Blast at Buddy Boy Brands 420 Bazaar

Had a Blast at Buddy Boy Brands 420 Bazaar

We challenge ourselves to be active, not just outside or in the gym, but in many other ways. We actively use mobile apps to save money on our organic groceries. We actively earn rewards points and miles for free flights and hotel stays, and we’re always putting in effort to save money at dispensaries. The obvious recurring theme here is our frugality, which is something we’re quite proud of. This tendency causes us to seek out free events, both in and outside of our industry. It’s what led us to...

Lia Oriel's Huff n Puff Fitness Classes

Lia Oriel's Huff n Puff Fitness Classes

Have you ever been to a fitness class? Have you ever been to a fitness class, on weed? If you haven’t, now you can! The idea of incorporating marijuana into your fitness regimen as part of your overall health and wellness routine is rapidly growing. In states where marijuana is legal, we’re starting to see the rise of the CannaFitness industry, and with it, is the start of cannabis fitness classes. These are classes where you’re allowed to medicate on site, prior, and post training. For those of us who have experience, and already consume cannabis as part of our training, this isn’t anything new, but it provides us with a place to meet like minded people, have engaging conversations about some of our biggest passions, and elevate our minds and bodies through physical challenge. 

As exciting as that is...

Denver's 420 Rally Spreads Awareness Despite Backlash

Denver's 420 Rally Spreads Awareness Despite Backlash

MJFITNUT was on the ground in Denver for the entire 4/20 week! The first three days were spent canvasing dispensaries in the area to help spread awareness about the 420 Games. All of the dispensaries we went to were so supportive. It’s incredible how supportive the entire cannabis community has been, in welcoming MJFITNUT. Our big event on the day of 4-20 was Denver’s 420 Rally. 

 

This may have been our first 420 Rally, but the rally was started over 20 years ago, by a renowned cannabis activist, named Ken Gorman. It was originally created as an act of protest for the legalization of marijuana and hemp. What first began as official smoke-ins on the steps of Colorado’s Capital building to bring together activists, in hopes of making a difference, has since grown into...

Smokin' Trees with The Chief

After last weeks article on Elevated Eating, prepare yourself for some more mouthwatering photos of food today, although instead of in the kitchen with a private cannabis chef, we’ve been invited for BBQ at Fort Hale. This fort is not open to the public, and it is not a military base. The flag that flies high here is one of paradise, family, and sanctuary. It’s guarded securely by two United States Military Veterans, who know Fort Hale as...

Elevated Eating with Private East Coast Cannabis Chef

If you were asked to think about the best meal of your life, what would it be? Really think about it. We would assume it would be the kind of meal you walk away from feeling, not just full, but completely satisfied, and even in some cases, impressed. For us, many of our most enjoyable memories are at a booth in a restaurant, our table at home, or even a rock ledge overlooking one of the local beaches in Barbados, just a block down from...

Jazmin's Journey to Lose 100+lbs with Marijuana

One thing we keep mentioning we love about creating and running MJFITNUT is the remarkable people we meet. After visiting Cali for the first time, attending our first 420 Games LA, and getting to be surrounded by so many like minded people, all coming together to help create a positive image for cannabis, we are thrilled for the year ahead of us! It’s amazing getting to have inspiring conversations with people like...

Lit & Fit in California

Lit & Fit in California

We don’t know what was more incredible, our first 420 Games experience, or getting to visit California, and seeing the Pacific Ocean for the very first time. We really got to experience Cali in high class, fueled by the many edible samples we received, as well as all the sample topicals, which aided in our recovery. It’s so hard to narrow down a favorite part of our trip to Los Angeles, when we got to do and see so much. Our afternoon after the 420 Games was spent walking from Santa Monica to Venice, for lunch and back, before heading to the after party. The following morning was spent relaxing, and taking part in some active recovery on the beautiful beach of Santa Monica. We were even able to squeeze in a scenic bike ride before catching our first Uber to LAX, and onto our free first class flights, home to Colorado. 

From the moment we touched down in Los Angeles, we could feel the west coast energy, and it felt good. Having brought no checked bags, within minutes of exiting the plane, we were making our way out of LAX, on a brief ride down an escalator, when I removed my zippered hoodie, bearing the MJFITNUT shirt for the first time this far West. At that exact moment, as Heather and I were deep in giddy conversation, we were interrupted by...

Extra Elevated Our 1st 420 Games Experience

The alarm went off at 5:00am. One snooze, and 15 minutes more of cuddles, before we rolled out of bed. As we finished getting dressed, and brushed our teeth, we gave each other an enthusiastic high five before heading down to the lobby for breakfast. Today was going to be the start of our newly found life’s mission, and we couldn’t have been more excited. It was 5:59am when we...

How 2 “Stoners” got 2 First Class Flights and 2 Nights Hotel Stays for Only $22.40!

Sitting in our terminal at Denver International, we could barely contain our excitement as our gate attendant announced, “Now boarding priority first class”. We grabbed our backpacks, and started for the plane. As we sat down next to each other in our big comfy seats, we adjusted our oversized headrests and got our feet kicked out into our extra leg room, we looked at each other and smiled. There was a look in our eyes at that moment. One of excitement and adventure, but also of accomplishment and gratitude. We had no idea when we started collecting miles and rewards points back in 2015, we’d be...

How Social Facilitation Will Improve Your Performance!

How Social Facilitation Will Improve Your Performance!

Even though it was in October of 2015, I still remember running my first 5k like it was yesterday. I remember it so clearly for many reasons. The first being, it was the first competitive race I had ever participated in, so the experience itself was entirely new to me. It was also the best physical performance I had ever seen myself accomplish. You would think those reasons would be enough to brand the event into my memory, but what I remember most is how I felt. I’ll never forget being almost overwhelmed by this incredible feeling. It was this feeling of energy and excitement that I had never felt before. 

It was this incredible feeling, that empowered me to perform at the best of my abilities. For the first time in my life...

"SMOKE WEED EVERY DAY" - NATE DOGG

I don't know about you, but I'm going to guess if people like Nate Dogg, smoke weed every day, it adds up quickly. Then of course there's other musicians like Wiz Khalifa, Dizzy Wright, and of course Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg, that openly discuss consuming marijuana on the daily. Lucky for them, they all have famous musician money, and they can afford it in abundance as a very hard earned luxury. As for the rest of us...
