A medicinal marijuana dispensary in Colorado has named a strain of weed after the Denver Broncos' record-setting quarterback, Peyton Manning.

A Peyton Manning brand of marijuana?

Don't look now, but a medicinal marijuana dispensary in Colorado has named its strain of weed after the Denver Broncos record-setting quarterback, per the New York Daily News

"The Manning Strain -- Chem 91 SFV OG Kush -- is described as offering 'The best of both worlds, a Uplifting, Happy, Euphroric, thought provoking Sativa,'" according to the report. It also adds it was especially manufactured for MS, anxiety, nausea and headaches. 

A dispensary employee told the New York Daily News the brand name shouldn't come as a shock. 

"That happens all the time. You can grow anything and name it anything you want. Dispensaries will have the same strain but name it different things." 

Matt Ferner of the Huffington Post notes Colorado residents voted for the recreational use of marijuana for individuals 21 and older in November. On the other hand, the NFL has a strict drug policy which forbids its players from consuming the said substance. 

Just last Thursday, Manning also grabbed headlines for his seven touchdown passes with no interceptions in a 49-27 opening day win over the Super Bowl XLVII champions, the Baltimore Ravens.  

The last quarterback who pulled off the same feat was Y.A. Tittle of the New York Giants on October 28, 1962, per NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal. 

A photo of the Manning Strain can be seen on Fox Sports radio and television host Peter Burns' Twitter account here

Rory McIlroy slumps to a T5 finish at the Deutsche Bank Championship after another frustrating day on the TPC Boston track. NORTON, Mass. -- Rory McIlroy’s Labor Day weekend ended at the Deutsche Bank Championship the way it began — with a lackluster 1-under 70 that had the world No. 1 trying out for the role of head majorette. It was an offending iron that McIlroy spun over his head like a baton on Friday; Monday, on ...

New to Mile High Report? Sign up here and join the discussion! I am certain fans from around the league will criticize these rankings because the Seattle Seahawks did obliterate the Denver Broncos in the last meaningful game played in the NFL, but this is a new season and these are now completely different teams. The Seahawks are still good, but I do not believe they are as good as they were last year, while the Broncos have gotten d ...

Sep 1 2014 11:55am CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Wes Welker returned to practice Monday for the first time since sustaining a concussion in an Aug. 23 preseason game against the Houston Texans. The Denver slot receiver ran short routes during the 20-minute viewing period open to the media. Welker’s concussion was his third in 10 months. He got hurt on a hard hit from D.J.
