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

Denver Broncos are America's favorite team for first time in Harris poll

Oct 14 2014 9:47am CDT | Source: milehighreport

The Denver Broncos are America's favorite team. It's a little bit Peyton Manning, a little bit John Elway, a little bit record-breaking greatness. It's a little bit how the Denver Broncos have always had a large fanbase nationwide, and maybe it's even a little bit rooting for the underdog following Denver's 43-8 Super Bowl loss. The Denver Broncos are America's favorite team, unseating the Dallas Cowboys for t ...

Kansas City Chiefs: Would Parting Ways with Dwayne Bowe Hurt the Team?

Oct 14 2014 7:52am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Dwayne Bowe has played a big role for the Kansas City Chiefs since the team drafted him out of LSU in 2007. Even though he was sharing the load in the receiving game with future Pro Football Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez, Bowe still managed to pull in 2,017 yards and 12 touchdown grabs in his first two years.  Despite his glaring drop issues in his second season, Bowe showed a lot of promise for the future. Instead, he has only give ...

If you're having some issues at quarterback in Week 7, you probably should take a look at the waiver wire. Unless you have Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, you're probably not in a pickle at quarterback this week. No quarterbacks really have bad matchups with the exception of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning against the San Francisco 49ers, but you're probably not ben ...

So the Broncos and 49ers played the same game in Week 6

Oct 14 2014 12:03am CDT | Source: milehighreport

That felt familiar. Here's a tale of four teams that is really a tale of two teams twice. And the winners of these two tales will face off Sunday night. The road teams were favored. The Broncos were 10-point favorites at MetLife Stadium while the 49ers were 3.5-point favorites at the Edward Jones Dome. Each saw a relatively healthy fanbase in attendance on the road. The home underdogs took an early lead. What, you thought th ...

Oct 13 2014 11:28pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The St. Louis Rams, knowing their season was on the line, pulled out all the stops against the San Francisco 49ers.  They pulled out formations they hadn’t used before and challenged the 49ers deep.  Before they could blink, the 49ers found themselves down 14-0. Then, with one 80-yard bomb, the momentum shifted, and it was all over from there. Colin Kaepernick hit a wide-open Brandon Lloyd who ran the distance with just 15 sec ...
