The 2nd Annual 420 Games Invade Los Angeles At Santa Monica Pier; Early Riser Runners & Pro Athletes Show Marijuana For Wellness Works

The 2nd Annual 420 Games Invade Los Angeles At Santa Monica Pier; Early Riser Runners & Pro Athletes Show Marijuana For Wellness Works

SANTA MONICA, CA - March 30, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) The 2nd annual 420 Games coming to the Santa Monica Pier on April 1st is not your normal marijuana event. The event starts at 8 am with a 4.2 mile run from Santa Monica to Venice and back. Last year's winner was an Olympic Marathon trial runner. Several NFL players will be in attendance speaking about health and wellness. A hip LA Yogi will lead a pre-run yoga session at the Pier before hundreds of athletic men and women line up to run. Schedule below.
Unlike most other cannabis events, the 420 games ask their participants not to smoke on site. "This is all about changing perceptions and we don't want the outside looking in seeing clouds of smoke over our heads, literally or figuratively" said founder McAlpine.
The event is an advocacy fun run to change the perception of cannabis and those who use it in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle. "We know of thousands of athletes and responsible people that use cannabis" states Jim McAlpine, event founder. "From average Joes to professional ranks of all sports, many athletes use cannabis as a successful part of their athletic and fit lifestyle." The event at the Southern California landmark is expected to draw thousands and brings a message of wellness, fitness and health. A normal 5k run is just over 3 miles, but this event's 4.2 mile run allows participants to "Go the Extra Mile for Cannabis."
The LA 420 Games' is the first event of a 2017 Tour and no, it's not an April Fool's joke. The now national event series has grown immensely since it started two years ago and this kick-off event at the Santa Monica Pier will be followed by events in 6 states and 8 cities including San Francisco, Phoenix, Denver, Boulder, Portland, Seattle and Las Vegas.
CHANGING THE STIGMA: Hundreds of participants are expected to run or walk for cannabis respect on April 1st in LA, creating a vibe of camaraderie. The post-run "420 Games Village" will host a party for like-minded individuals who see an opportunity to change the "stoner" perception and caricature that many conjure up when they think of a marijuana user. "We want people to think of Michael Phelps or yoga classes when they think of marijuana, not Jeff Spicoli or the High Times Cup." said McAlpine.
DO THESE LOOK LIKE STONERS TO YOU?
The post-run "420 Games Village" will also feature a Yoga warm down session, Lagunitas beer garden, performance from XGames athletes and speeches from top former NFL players including:
Kyle Turley – New Orleans Saints, St Louis Rams & Kansas City Chiefs
Eben Britton – Jacksonville Jaguars & Chicago Bears
Nate Jackson – SF 49ers & Denver Broncos
Boo Williams – New Orleans Saints
The 420 Games are sponsored by Lagunitas Brewery, SnowBomb.com, VapeXhale, WeedMaps and Power Plant Fitness. Over 50 other top cannabis brands in California will be in attendance as well.
What: The 420 Games
When: Saturday April 1, 2016, 9AM – 2PM
Where: Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica, CA 90401
Some highlights of the games include:
  • Samples from cannabis companies will be handed out to those over 21, however no smoking or vaping is allowed on site.
  • National Footbal League (NFL) athletes Kyle Turley, Eben Britton, Boo Williiams and Nate Jackson will be in attendance and running the race.

#Cannabis Stock News: Algae Dynamics Corp (OTCQB: $ADYNF) Revised Business Strategy To Include Product Development Using Other Botanicals Such As Cannabis And Hemp

#Cannabis Stock News: Algae Dynamics Corp (OTCQB: $ADYNF) Revised Business Strategy To Include Product Development Using Other Botanicals Such As Cannabis And Hemp


TORONTO, CANADA - March 30, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) ALGAE DYNAMICS CORP (OTCQB: ADYNF) (the "Company" or "ADC"), a development stage company previously focused solely on commercialization of its proprietary BiloSilo™ system for the cultivation of highly-pure algae biomass, today announced a formal re-alignment of its business focus and strategy.
The Company had previously announced, in December 2016, that it was considering ways to capitalize on synergies between its focus on algae cultivation and algae oil extraction, and oil extractions from other botanicals such as cannabis and hemp. The result of these efforts is a new strategy to develop unique health and nutraceutical products utilizing cannabis, hemp and algae oils. Management believes that this strategy engenders both an immediate product development opportunity leading to near-term revenue and a longer-term vertically-integrated sustainable enterprise approach.
The revised strategy resulted in a seven-step program for 2017 aimed at rapid implementation of this strategy, as follows:
  1. Research Agreement with University of Waterloo to investigate the use of cannabis oil in the context cancer - $600,000, three-year program (signed February 24, 2017).
  2. Research Agreement with University of Western Ontario to investigate the use of cannabis derivatives for the development of novel pharmacotherapies for mental health - C$1,000,000, four-year program (signed March 13, 2017).
  3. Collaboration Agreement with ARA – Avanti Rx Analytics, a company approved by Health Canada, to extract, purify, manufacture, sell, import/export medical marijuana products (signed March 15, 2017).
  4. Sign supply agreements with cannabis producers, licensed by Health Canada.
  5. Select location suitable for future cannabis production.
  6. Apply to Health Canada for licence to produce, sell, import/export medical cannabis.
  7. Develop collaboration opportunity with pharmaceutical company.
Paul Ramsay, Chairman and President of the Company said, "We believe this revised corporate strategy will allow us to build value for all stakeholders over both the near and longer terms. In the short-term we are fast-tracking to revenue growth. In the longer term, we believe we have a sustainable enterprise-building opportunity in a rapidly expanding market."

About Algae Dynamics Corp
ADC is currently engaged in the development of unique health products and pharmaceuticals that utilize hemp, cannabis and algae oils. This is an extension of our plan to commercialize our proprietary BioSilo(R) algae cultivation system for the high volume, low cost production of pure contaminant-free algae biomass which is high in Omega-3 fatty acids. We have engaged two Canadian universities to provide research into the use of extracts from cannabis oil, which we plan to use to develop products that combine the significant health benefits of Omega-3s derived from algae oil and extracts from cannabis oil. Our research is focusing on the use of cannabis oil in the context of cancer, and the use of cannabis derivatives for the development of novel pharmacotherapies for mental health.
