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

7 reasons Denver Broncos fans are really the 'best in the NFL'

Aug 22 2014 2:26pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

Denver Broncos fans don't just cheer on Sundays...during football season...when the team is winning. WE are fans for life. 24/7. 365 days a year. So even though Green Bay Packers fans deserve some dues, I maintain Broncos fans should be deemed No. 1. Forbes Magazine just bestowed a new title on the Green Bay Packers yesterday and it's not going to go over well in Broncos Country - "Best Fans in the NFL." E ...

Aug 22 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: milehighreport

It's up to you Broncos Country, which catch was more impressive? This past week in practice Cody Latimer flashed some more of that big-play ability that reporters and beat writers have been raving about.  He recently released the video from his catch and I went ahead and created a gif from it.  The pass is from Brock Osweiler to the back of the endzone. A couple of seasons ago, Demaryius T ...

San Francisco 49ers: What to Watch for Against the San Diego Chargers

Aug 22 2014 2:20am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers line up for their third preseason game against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.  The first two games haven’t gone particularly well, but that’s due, in large part, to the absence of starters. Colin Kaepernick has seen only 23 snaps so far this preseason, and had 10 dropbacks.   Frank Gore and Michael Crabtree have had three snaps apiece.  Vernon Davis, Bruce Miller, Anquan Boldin and Stevie Johnson have all had fewer than 25 snaps. It’s worse on de ...

Your Denver Broncos - Houston Texans unofficial injury report heading into Saturday's preseason game. The quad injury that kept Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders out of the team's Week 2 preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers, and off the practice field for the past week, seems to be subsiding.

Rookie Jimmie Ward is your starting nickel cornerback ... for now. We all know the San Francisco 49ers had to halt practice on Wednesday due to poor field conditions, and we also know that they're now working on them. But there were a few things of note from the practice session they did manage to get in. One that was particularly interesting to me was noted by Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, and it ...
