Edible Marijuana – The Green Scene 411

Edible Marijuana – The Green Scene 411

There has been quite a bit of controversy about edible marijuana (cannabis) in the news lately. “Edibles” are most often referred to as any product intended to be consumed orally that also contains marijuana as an ingredient. These days there is a wide range of edible food types, including drinks, cookies, baked goods, candies, oils, butters and pills. We are not here to discuss the controversy but to relay information on the consumption of edibles. Edible marijuana products that are eaten have a number of key differences from marijuana that is inhaled by smoking. When ingested marijuana enters the digestive system and is processed differently than marijuana that enters the lungs by smoking it. Edible marijuana can take up to two hours to take effect and commonly produces a much stronger and longer-lasting effect. While recreational marijuana that is meant to be smoked is sold by weight, edible products are sold by the amount of THC in the product. In Colorado, consumers can purchase edible products in packages or…

Know Before You Go – Avalanche Awareness Program

Know Before You Go – Avalanche Awareness Program

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center and the Utah Avalanche Center reached a HUGE milestone this week with Know Before You Go. This week the two organizations are officially launching the new Know Before You Go avalanche awareness program intended for distribution across North America.  This is a very ambitious program and involved many dozens of supporters and contributors.  Aaron Carlson,Executive Director of Friends of CAICsaid “We are exhausted but very proud of the results. Our goal is to reach an estimated 300,000 backcountry users this winter across North America and to deliver the message that they can get out in the snow, have fun, and come home alive by following some simple guidelines”.   Avalanches kill on average 39 people each year in North America. Hundreds more are injured. Avalanche awareness and education are key for backcountry users to have fun and stay alive. The KBYG program was developed in 2004 to raise avalanche awareness among inexperienced backcountry users, particularly those in junior high and high school. Since then nearly 200,000…

Prepping  for Trail Running and Leaving Pavement  Behind

Prepping for Trail Running and Leaving Pavement Behind

There is nothing quite like getting back to nature in that primal way than trail running blissfully through the woods, just you, your legs and the sound of your feet hitting the dirt.  It wasn’t until I started trail running that I fell back in love with the sport of running. If you are thinking about getting out there this season, here are a few basics that will help you prepare for the better life off the pavement. The Basics: Slow Down:  Trail running offers such varied terrain that at first you should slow down so you can pay attention to obstacles. Instead of setting mileage, begin running for time until you can track how you are doing. Be prepared to hike some of the steeps until you learn to change the way you run and it is okay to alter your pace too. Pick Up Your Feet: The roots, rocks and loose dirt on a trail will require you to change the way you run. Pick up your feet especially towards the…
