Tune in (but don't drop out): FIU hosts cannabis and psychedelics conference

group

While many might associate their time in college with drugs and psychedelic experimentation, a group at Florida International University (FIU) is trying to bring that world out of the dorm room and into the classroom — academically speaking, that is.

Saturday, July 9, brings the start of Cannadelic Miami, the first hybrid cannabis and psychedelics conference and expo at FIU. The entire two-day conference is free to students and faculty. The speaking sessions are open to the public with a paid ticket ($200 and up), but the expo and networking floor outside the lecture halls are free of charge.

Countless people already benefit from using cannabis before, after, and even during their workouts. The key is finding the right dosage that works for your unique needs and athletic lifestyle.

All of us oftentimes can make use of a little push to do a workout. That’s why using pre-workout mixes and energy drinks have become so popular. They contain an array of ingredients ranging from creatinine to caffeine and BCAA’s (branched-chain amino acids), which promise to give an energy boost that you need to do better at your workouts.

Luke Rockhold’s UFC 278 training includes marijuana and mushrooms

MMA fighters

Former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold will make his octagon return at UFC 278 on August 20 against former title challenger Paulo Costa.

The 37-year old hasn't fought since July 2019, but plans to jump right back in the mix with a win over the No. 5 ranked Costa. His preparation for the upcoming bout is interesting. Rockhold uses marijuana and mushrooms to get 'hyper focused.'

"I use marijuana to kind of isolate. I don't get any need or want to go do other things. It just kind of isolates me and hyper focuses me on my goal and just being on a one-track mind," Rockhold told Submission Radio.

"Then I tried mushrooms and it enhances my focus within that space."

Here’s what happened when I used a CBD topical for getting tattooed

Getting tattooed? This CBD topical may be the aftercare product you need.

Tattooed people are some of the toughest individuals around. The heavily tattooed aren’t prone to lifting heavier weights or be more likely to capture an MMA championship. But they sure can take a shit-ton of pain. Be they a glutton for punishment, a lover of art, or something else entirely, the tattooed sit through the oft-suffering experience of several needles at speeds between 50 and 3,000 times per minute. And we keep coming back for more.

Rapper Wiz Khalifa premieres cannabis line in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Lil Wayne

There's no doubt Wiz Khalifa knows his marijuana. I dare you to find a photo or video on his Instagram account where he isn't smoking, or there isn't at least some smoke around him.

So with such knowledge on weed, it's no surprise he's bringing his own line to the Great Lakes State, and he premiered it in Grand Rapids this past weekend.

You won't get your hands on his personal stash, but Wiz's on brand of Cannabis, Khalifa Kush, is now available in Michigan, specifically at Gage Cannabis locations.

Research finds weekly use of marijuana doesn’t compromise physical health

woman

With dozens of states passing some form of cannabis legislation in the past decade, more people than ever are using marijuana for either medical or recreational purposes. According to recent research, regular cannabis use has a minimal effect on a user’s physical health. The study adds to the growing body of research on how marijuana affects pulmonary, cardiovascular and other biological functions. Since federal law has made it virtually impossible for researchers to study cannabis for the past few decades, most of the research on the effects of regular cannabis use is quite new. This recent study, whose findings were reported in the Drug and Alcohol Dependence journal, sought to investigate the effect of regular (once a week) cannabis use on physical health.
