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

Oct 1 2014 10:44pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The season has barely started, and we're already ready to kick-start the NFL coaching carousel.  With the Oakland Raiders' firing of former head coach Dennis Allen, it's already assured that we'll see at least one new head coach next season. It's likely that won't be the only vacancy, though, thanks to poor starts for the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills as well as a possible upheaval in the San Francisco 49ers' locke ...

The SB Nation fantasy staff looks forward to Week 5 and ranks the quarterbacks. The 2014 NFL season returns for Week 5, with only a couple of bye weeks. Week 4 threw a lot of fantasy owners for a loop when quarterbacks like Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson had to sit out. This week is more aligned with what owners prefer-- plugging their usual starter into their QB slot and not having to think twice about it. If you are dealing with Ryan Tannehill ...
