Researchers Tout Cannabis as Therapeutic for Women’s Health

While 38 percent of women worldwide suffer from chronic diseases, only 4 percent of research and development funding goes toward examining women’s health-care products and services. This leads women to seek out and experiment with alternative therapies, cannabis among them.

“The female reproductive system has the highest concentration of endocannabinoid receptors after the brain, making women particularly responsive to the medicinal properties of the plant.”

Coming soon to a town near you…October 17, 2018 is recreational cannabis legalization in Canada. Who knew this day was going to come? Canada is poised to become a leader by being the first G7 nation to legalize cannabis for recreational purposes. This has led to much excitement and trepidation among Canadians as this industry is shaping itself while the world is watching this experiment play out. With a sophisticated black market, a host of regulatory controls, and a lack of choice – what will Canadian cannabis legalization look like?

Cannabis for Fitness

Cannabis for Fitness

Imagine you do the hardest workout of your life and wake up the next day NOT SORE.
Is it hard to imagine? You are not alone.

Cannabis topicals and sublingual oils are being touted as an amazing recovery tool after activity. It is difficult to understand how cannabis can aid in recovery when the stereotypical image of a cannabis user is someone lazing on the couch eating munchies. With legalization in many places, science is getting involved in the research of this plant and we are learning more about the health benefits.

We asked our friend and fitness advocate, Simon Creasey (@everfitstrategies) to talk about how he achieves balance and maximizes recovery in his routine using cannabis. A passion and dedication to fitness has brought Simon to the top of the game, winning the 2018 Alberta Body Building Association (ABBA) Men's Classic Bodybuilding Champion. He has also dedicated many years to the study of Ninjutsu, earning a black belt in the discipline. If you are in and around the Calgary area, Simon is bringing his knowledge and passion to Big Sky Fitness as a Group Fitness Instructor, Fitness Kickboxing, and Personal Training.

Healing with Cannabis: Managing Post-Operative Pain

Healing with Cannabis: Managing Post-Operative Pain

Like anyone going for an operation you consider how you’ll manage post-operative pain, knowing cannabis can be used for pain I was committed to use only cannabis to manage mine. Main reason for this choice was to limit the opioid based painkillers as they wreak havoc on your digestion not to mention they are highly addictive. So, cannabis it is, or that’s what I thought at least.
