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

Harder, better, faster, stronger: The Broncos 2014 secondary

Jul 24 2014 1:42am CDT | Source: milehighreport

GBK Luxury Sports Lounge, Prior To The ESPY Awards
2013 was the year of the offense for the Denver Broncos. Peyton Manning and Co. smashed records left, right, and center, leading Denver to a Super Bowl berth. However, following a run-in with the best secondary in the NFL in Super Bowl 48, the Broncos have revamped their own secondary to be stronger, tougher, and more physically-imposing. The additions of T.J. Ward, one of the hardest hitters in the league, and Aqib Talib, a much bigger and ph ...

How Much Job Security Does Each NFL Head Coach Have Entering 2014?

Jul 23 2014 10:30pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

St.Jude Country Music Marathon & Half Marathon Presented By Nissan
Only in the National Football League is the head coach so important to the success of a team. It's not like in baseball where a manager just writes out a lineup card or chooses his pitching rotation. No, in baseball, you can't win if you don't have the players. But in football, a great head coach can make an average team into a good one and a terrific head coach can make an average team into a Super Bowl team. ...
