On March 25th, 2018, cannabis Athletes and the Founders of MJFITNUT, Heather and Antonio DeRose hosted Hemp Nutrition 101 at Urban Sanctuary in Denver, CO. They both give informative speeches on hemp nutrition, including the several incredible benefits of eating hemp, and why hemp is considered a healthy superfood. Attendees learned how to add hemp foods into your diet, and found out how hemp can be an ideal source of protein for athletes. 

The benefits of CBD were discussed by Straight Hemp's CEO, Devin Alvarez. Attendees had time to speak with the great people at Straight Hemp, who where on site to talk about their products, and answer additional questions. They also got to taste some delicious hemp food samples by Hemp Way Foods, The Diaz Farm, and TRUthfull Bites!

This was a fundraiser event with donation tickets benefiting our NFP Partner, Realm of Caring. Entry was free with a $10 suggested donation to help support them in their mission to improve lives through Research, Eduction, and Advocacy. "By funding and conducting Research, we learn more about cannabis and its effects while legitimizing the therapy. Education empowers consumers to select the best products for their individual needs, and informs healthcare professionals about options for their patients. Through Advocacy, we spread the truth about cannabis and expand access to those in need".

Thanks to the wonderful people who donated, we were able to raise $140 in ticket sales for Realm of Caring! We thank everyone for coming, and want to thank our sponsors, Straight Hemp, Hemp Way Foods, The Diaz Farm, TRUthfull Bites, Bee-Nails, and Kris Moorwood with Hana Hemp and Callie Cannabis
