Cannabis Is A Beneficial Element Of Athletes’ Training And Pain Relief Regimen
Today on Concierge For Better Living Doc Rob is joined by Long-distance runner Flavie Dokken. Flavie is partnering with Wana Brands to promote cannabis products as a beneficial element of athletes’ training and pain relief regimen. Before her workouts and after, Dokken uses cannabis products to accentuate her endurance and her strength, echoing a broader trend among professional athletes. Wana Brands has taken notice. Dokken’s cannabis use began in the aftermath of her time in the U.S. Army. She came home to nurse a stress fracture and ongoing chronic pain. To deal with the physical ailments, she started experimenting with cannabis. From there, Dokken embarked on a career as a professional bodybuilder and continued her cannabis experiments. In recent years, she has become a competitive ultramarathoner in Colorado; this year; she’s eyeing several 100k races. In February, she clocked a 6: 50-mile pace in the Mad Moose Pueblo Half Marathon. Whether she’s lifting in the gym or running on the trail, Dokken has found success in accenting her workouts with CBD-rich edibles and capsules. Athletes—and all consumers—can find Wana Brands products in Colorado, Oregon, Nevada, and Arizona. The company is planning to expand into Illinois, Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania, California, and Canada.

Living With The Side Effects And Hangovers Of Strong Painkillers And Alcohol
Today Doc Rob is joined by Cullen Jenkins, former NFL defensive tackle, and Super Bowl champion. The former Green Bay Packers defensive lineman started to feel the aches and strains of football during his final season at Central Michigan, even before his rookie debut in the NFL in 2003. But by the end of his 13-year professional career, the pain was a constant companion, from his torn pectoral that had to be drained of excess fluid to his injured ankle and battered quadriceps. When the 37-year-old retired in 2016 after playing with the Packers, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants and Washington Redskins, he was regularly using opiates to dull the pain and drinking alcohol to numb the senses. Sleep was elusive. Jenkins, who came back from a calf injury to help push the Packers to a Super Bowl XLV victory, fell into a deep depression, living with the side effects and hangovers of strong painkillers and alcohol. So Jenkins has recently turned to a controversial supplement instead: Cannabidiol, better known as CBD oil. The chemical, extracted from a cannibals sativa plant, is known to have numerous benefits in the form of managing chronic pain, promoting sleep and thereby reducing depression and anxiety.

Can We Treat Addiction With Cannabis? One Group Believes So..
Joe Schrank got the call six years ago that his friend Greg Giraldo had been found unconscious after an overdose in a New Jersey hotel room. Schrank had tried in vain to save him. Using pot instead of cocaine and Valium was something Schrank had suggested to his friend weeks before his death. Although it is an unpopular idea in the rehab world, where Schrank had made his career, he nonetheless had a hunch marijuana could have helped his friend. After Giraldo’s death, Schrank began working with Bienenfeld on treatment plans that incorporated marijuana as a crucial detox step. He also connected with Amanda Reiman, former head of marijuana law and policy at the Drug Policy Alliance, whose research at University of California, Berkeley, for more than a decade has focused on the use of cannabis as a viable substitute for prescription drugs. Schrank took another step and opened High Sobriety – a first-of-its-kind rehab center that uses cannabis as a central part of its treatment plan. Seen as a highly contentious move in the rehab world, High Sobriety has been met with skepticism and criticism for its use of marijuana in a field where success is traditionally measured by total abstinence.
