Colorado Cannabis Athletes go Coast to Coast

Cannabis health benefits_coast to coastMy wife Heather and I just returned to our home in Colorado from Miami, Florida this week. We were speaking at the U.S. Cannabis Conference and Expo about epilepsy, and the benefits of cannabis for fitness. We’ve had the opportunity to speak several times in Colorado this year, but this was our first time educating on the East Coast! In April of this year we spoke about the benefits of hemp for athletes at the Terpenes and Testing Magazine World Conference, in San Jose, CA. Now that we’ve had the chance to speak in Florida, we’ve officially covered the U.S. coast to coast in our efforts to spread the truth about cannabis and couldn’t be more excited for what’s next!

The education continues as we travel to Kansas City, MO for the MCIA Fall Business CCannabis health benefits_coast to coastonference, September 14-15! The MCIA is the Missouri Cannabis Industry Association. Cannabis health benefits_coast to coastMissouri was our home state for our entire lives before uprooting and moving to Colorado in 2015.

This two-day business conference will include workshops and speakers dealing with a wide variety of issues that face the current industry, as well as challenges that will be encountered in a new market. This is a business focused event and we will be speaking about the marketing of cannabis through athletics. Business owners will learn best practices and strategies, why it’s important for cannabis brands to have a health and fitness focus, and how to get started.Cannabis health benefits_coast to coast

It’s been an incredible year for the cannabis industry so far, and I look forward to what the rest of the year has to bring. I feel very blessed having MJFITNUTthe opportunities to share the story of my relationship with cannabis, and to spread the truth about its benefits for health and fitness from coast to coast. I’m especially looking forward to returning to Missouri where medical cannabis is on the ballot for legalization this November.
