The Cannabis Health Challenge model will improve your life in more ways than one. Cannabis  makes working out easier and more fun. One of the biggest challenges in starting a fitness routine is that first day, and with cannabis you’ll find yourself getting in better shape and actually enjoying your workouts. Cannabis makes food taste better, and adds to even healthy food choices. So it will be easier and more enjoyable for you to eat better foods that improve your energy and mental clarity. In addition to having the benefits of a healthy diet that will compliment cannabis use and improve how the cannabis works in the body with healthy eating choices. Cannabis helps open your mind to new ways of looking at yourself and the world that you are part of.

The commitment will be to allow about 20-30 minutes each day where you can responsibly consume cannabis and participate in the 3 activities- fitness, food, and reflection. The Cannabis Health Challenge is available anytime for you to join in on a path to a healthier and happier life with cannabis.

Who ELSE is taking the Cannabis Health Challenge?

Here’s a recap of my first day in The Cannabis Health Challenge.

For my cannabis consumption prior to starting the challenge, I dosed with a everclear extracted hash oil that was sativa dominant, THC 40% / CBD 20% using my Nectar Collector. My day one fitness challenge approach was train for training. The great thing with the 10 day challenge, and we’ll all see, as days 4-5-6 are when we’ll feel it. And getting through those ten days can launch us into a new realm of fitness and wellness. I started with a light warm up jumping rope to get the blood flowing for 3 minutes. As with the body and starting a fitness challenge or any new routine, the first phase is building that endurance factor. That’s the base thats leads to strength and power in a fitness routine. Following the jump rope, I moved to 5 minutes of basic light stretching that focused on large or multiple muscle groups. Then into doing 5 sets of burpee’s (as many reps till one is exhausted but not pushing to over do it), Push-up at 5 sets till exhaustion and 5 sets of standard sit ups till exhaustion. I record reps for each set with each exercise or time and that provides a motivational factor to achieve one more rep each day. I try to keep my daily water intake at 60 to 80 fluid ounces per day. For my food portion of the challenge, I prepared a spicy asian style dish with fresh chicken, steamed white rice, fresh sweet mini peppers (great source of Vitamin A / Vitamin C & potassium), and chopped onions. For Self-Reflection my 5 aspects of life I am grateful (aside from Jerry) for are : Family (the four legged ones too), Life, Activism/Advocacy, Cannabis, and the  Creative Arts (writing, painting, reading, music – growing cannabis is a creative art).
