Food and Beverage
Canna Energy Mango smacks you in the face with mango-ey citrus effervescence (we realize mango-ey is not a real word, but it sounded good). It fills your smell buds and taste buds with a quenching flavor of the tropics!!
Canna Energy Original delivers a smooth mouthful of flavor that will keep you coming back for more every time. 10 out of 10 energy drinkers chose Canna Energy over the next leading brand (keep in mind, all ten of our taste testers work for us, however, we don’t think they were too biased.)
The history of the industrial hemp goes back thousands years. For example, the Chinese grew hemp over 4,500 years ago for textile fiber. They also used the seed as food. The spread of cannabis took place from China to the Middle East and the Mediterranean area and, subsequently, to Europe, probably via nomadic peoples. In American colonial times hemp was used in the production of rope, clothing and paper production. It was even said that farmers could pay their taxes in hemp because of its widespread value. If you would like to learn more about this amazing plant check out the Rocky Mountain Hemp Association.
CannaLife USA was started with the idea to uniquely re-introduce hemp through an entire line of food products. Canna Energy is our first in a coming line of hemp foods and drinks. So try a Canna Energy and let us know what you think!

And remember to “Fuel Different” with Canna Energy this summer. Busy, on-the-go Millennials need more than just a quick jolt of energy to get through the day.

Canna Energy provides that fuel with all natural ingredients and none of the added preservatives, fake sugars, or chemicals of traditional energy drinks.
So this summer, when you are out and about, choose Canna Energy for a sustainable boost that will not leave you craving sugar and more tired than you were to begin with. And with three mouth-watering flavors to choose from, the options for “Fueling Different” are limitless!
For more information on how you can get a can of Canna in a location near you, visit our website at cannagetsome.com and click on the “Get Some!” tab. You can also keep up with the latest Canna news and find out more about just what makes Canna Energy so amazing.
‘Fuel Different’ with Canna Energy!
No doubt about it, we live in a fast-paced world. In a society that is constantly moving, constantly going somewhere, and constantly doing something, many people are more tired out than ever and are looking for a way to have more energy that does not harm their health or break their bank account in the process. This is especially true for Millennials who are moving into a phase where they need energy for real life—careers, kids, and the day-to-day demands of raising a family. Real, clean energy is an essential component of health for their future. With the U.S. energy drink industry currently growing more than 50% every year, now is the perfect time for Canna Energy to rise to the occasion and help to meet these needs.
This is why Canna Energy has chosen “Fuel Different” as its new campaign slogan. Yes, the energy drink industry is growing, but many of the top contenders provide beverages that are full of synthetic, sugary chemicals and fake additives that do nothing for overall nutrition. The front-lining energy drinks leave people with a sugar crash that is much worse than the temporary burst of energy was worth. Worse of all, most of these drinks have the same amount of empty calories as the sodas they were supposed to be an alternative to.
Canna Energy, on the other hand, stands out from the crowd. With no artificial flavors, colors, or artificial sweeteners, it is a cut above the rest. Plus, the addition of hemp seed oil (with NO THC) means that your body gets all the benefits of hemp seed’s nearly-perfect omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acid ratio—an essential nutrient ratio when it comes to fighting maladies like heart disease, depression, arthritis, asthma and more. Since our bodies cannot produce omega fatty acids on their own, it is absolutely vital that we get them from our diet! You can be sure you won’t find any omega fatty acids in the big brand name energy drinks.
When it comes to energy drinks, Canna Energy is poised to become the “different” fuel of the 21st century. So the next time you need a truly healthy boost of energy that will actively add to your overall health and nutrition and won’t leave you crashing hours later, Fuel Different with Canna Energy!
To find out where you can get your hands on a can of Canna, visit our website at cannagetsome.com and click on the ‘Get Some!’ tab. We are adding new retailers every week, including hundreds of gas stations, liquor stores, and corner markets throughout Davidson County.
More information about all of our drinks and the Fuel Different campaign can be found on our website .
Keep Cool and Active This Summer with Canna Energy!
Most people know the importance of staying fit and keeping active. But when the temperatures are pushing a hundred degrees with 90% humidity, it can be really hard to get motivated. With the thick, hot air in the peak of summer, it can seem impossible to get out of your air conditioned house and off your couch to do anything, much less exercise.
The good news is that there are plenty of ways to stay cool during summertime fitness activities and avoid a bad case of heat stroke. Take a look at a few of our favorite summertime workout tips:
- Exercise in the early morning or early evening. Waking up early may sound like a drag at first, but there is nothing quite like a run in the cool, summer morning breeze before it gets too hot. The added bonus is that your workout will be done for the day and you will be able to get on with other activities. Walking at night, after the sun has gone down, has similar benefits.
- Going to the gym can get old, but guess what it also is? Air-conditioned. If you really need to do some high-intensity workouts, the gym is the perfect place to stay safe while you accomplish your most difficult workouts.
- Swimming is always a summertime favorite. Besides being a fantastic workout, it’s also fun! Swimming is a great choice to keep your heart rate up without much impact on your joints, and you are automatically kept cool.
- No matter what activity you choose, remember to bring along a crisp, cold can of Canna Energy! It will cool you down and give you the energy boost you need to get through the day, no matter what fun summertime activities lay ahead. With three different flavors to choose from, Canna Energy can be a part of any healthy lifestyle this summer, and all year-round.

And remember, if it is still too hot to get out of the house, you can always order Canna Energy on Amazon, with Amazon Prime free shipping! Visit our blog at cannagetsome.com/canna-energy-drink-now-available-on-amazon-primes-free-shipping for more details.
Canna Energy Around the Clock!
You may already know that Canna’s unique combination of hempseed oil with all-natural ingredients will give you a healthy, wholesome energy boost that is actually good for you. But did you know that you can drink the different flavors of Canna all day long at different times, based on what is most strategic for your body?
Canna Original, Canna Mango, and Canna Blue-Berry Lite all come with their own unique set of benefits, based on the added fruit nutrients in each drink.
Canna Mango is best for the morning. Mango has proven brain and memory benefits, and will help keep you going strong throughout the day. It’s a great alternative to the traditional Cup of Joe, which has the potential to upset your stomach with its high acidity. Mango also aids with digestion, so consuming it in the morning will give you benefits all day long!
Canna Original is best for mid-day and lunchtime. If you work a busy 9-to-5 job, it can be incredibly difficult to get all the nutrients you need to make it through the day from food alone. Canna Original is packed with energy and nutritional benefits from hempseed oil. So, you will be sure to avoid the afternoon slump that comes after ingesting a bunch of carbohydrates, and immediately feeling the need to hibernate.
Canna Blue-Berry Lite is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up or happy hour alternative. Low in calories and sugar, it will not awaken your appetite and leave you starving. Instead, it will give you the boost you need and the feeling of treating yourself after a long work day. By the way, there is evidence that blueberries are good for lowering your blood pressure. So, Canna Blue-Berry Lite might be just what the doctor ordered after a long day at the office.
To find out where to purchase Canna near you, visit our website at cannagetsome.com and click on “Get Some!” And remember, if you would rather not leave your house to get your hands on some Canna, Canna Energy is now available on Amazon Prime’s free shipping program! We are thrilled about this partnership, and are so excited to have one more way to get Canna Energy to the world.
Health Benefits of Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil is obviously the most important ingredient in Canna Energy drinks. But did you know that you can also get it in a bottle, take it as a supplement, and more? For many years hemp seed oil was shunned and stigmatized due to its supposed (and completely false) connection to THC and “getting high.” But the research is in, and the health community has recognized hemp seed oil’s value. The benefits of hemp seed oil are numerous, and many people are beginning to make a conscious effort to incorporate it as a part of their overall plan for health and fitness.
So what is so great about hemp seed oil? Well, hemp seeds are what is known in the world of nutrition as a “superfood.” They do so much and have so many more benefits than the average food. In addition to the widely lauded omega 3 fatty acids, hemp seed oil also contains antioxidants (key in fighting cancer), and several essential vitamins and minerals. The nutrients in hemp seed oil aid in weight loss, cholesterol control, inflammation prevention, and more.
In addition to ingesting hemp seed oil in products that contain it, such as health food smoothies or Canna Energy drinks, you can also purchase and utilize hemp seed oil like any essential oil. Essential oils are exploding onto the health scene as a natural way to treat and prevent many different ailments, and hemp seed oil is no different. Essential oil websites laud hemp seed oil as a treatment option for acne, eczema, psoriasis, inflammation, and many other problems! Hemp seed oil shows great promise for aiding in the healing process for many different types of skin issues, and can be applied directly to the skin as a topical treatment—although we would not recommend pouring Canna all over your face.
But, however you choose to get your hemp, we hope you make Canna Energy a part of the plan. For more information, or to find Canna Energy for sale near you, visit our website at cannagetsome.com.
Omega-3 vs. Omega-6 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are both what is termed “essential” fatty acids. This is because they are the only two types of fatty acids that the human body does not produce on its own, and thus the only two types we must obtain from the food we eat. And while they are both necessary, there are significant differences between the two that must be taken into account when creating a diet and lifestyle plan.
The reality is that we NEED more omega-3 for healthy bodily functioning, but as a modernized society we end up consuming vastly more omega-6 instead. With the rise of processed food and the frequency of dining out and use of commercial vegetable oils in restaurants, omega-6 consumption has risen as well. Omega-6 fatty acids are found in huge quantities in safflower, sunflower, corn, soybean, and cottonseed oil, as well as other commercial vegetable oils. It is unlikely that anybody who eats a standard American diet will ever suffer from an omega-6 fatty acid deficiency.
However, when it comes to omega-3s, that is another story. Omega-3 fatty acids are by far the more beneficial of the two. They can reduce the risk of heart disease and treat symptoms of diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and more. They also help with anxiety and other mood disorders, and may play a role in reducing the risk of certain types of cancers. Omega-3 fatty acids are most famously found in fish, but especially for those who do not care for the taste, it is important to get omega-3 fatty acids from elsewhere, too.
Where, you ask? Well, fish oil supplements may be taken, and omega-3 fatty acids are also found in abundance in green leafy vegetables, flax seed, and—you guessed it—hemp! So in addition to being all-natural and energizing, Canna Energy can also help you get the recommended amount of omega-3 fatty acids to keep you healthy! Hemp and other sources of omega-3 fatty acids are an essential component of the modern diet, so pick up a can of Canna today!
Different Flavors of Canna Energy
Canna Energy is amazing on its own, but did you know that there are actually three unique flavors? That’s right, Canna Energy is available in original, mango, and Blue-berry Pomegranate! Take a look at each of these incredible flavors below:
This is the classic. The health benefits of hemp cannot be overstated. As an omega 3 fatty acid and a source of vitamins A, C, and E, hemp is an ideally nutritious compound. It may prevent heart disease and lower blood pressure, and some studies even suggest that the nutrients it contains could play a role in cancer prevention. And yes, these benefits can be reaped by drinking all-natural Canna Energy Original!
Our favorite Canna Energy Original cocktail recipe: Canna Sunset
2 oz. good tequila
2 oz. pineapple juice
Fill to the top with Canna Energy Original
Splash with grenadine and enjoy on the beach!
Mangoes may very well be the superstar of the fruit world. Just one mango provides 76% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C, and it contains many other essential compounds as well. The nutrients in mangoes fight cancer, help lower bad cholesterol, aid in weight loss and digestion, strengthen the immune system, and more! Canna Energy Mango harnesses the power of the mango and combined with power of hemp this drink is unstoppable!
Our favorite Canna Energy Mango cocktail recipe: The Orange Peel
1.5 oz. Southern Comfort
2 oz. orange juice
.5 oz. Cointreau liqueur
3 oz. Canna Energy Mango
Mix in shaker
Pour over ice and .25 oz. of Grenadine Short Side
Add a squeeze of orange juice and beware!
As a known superfood, blueberries are the next logical choice to pair with Canna Energy. Blueberries contain antioxidants, which aid in cancer prevention, as well as comparatively large amounts of fiber and manganese, an essential nutrient for metabolization. They fight infection and boost heart and brain health. There’s not much they don’t do to improve your overall well-being, and at only forty calories and ten grams of sugar per can, there’s no guilt.
Our favorite Canna Energy Blue-berry Pomegranate cocktail recipe: Canna Kusk
1 oz. pomegranate liqueur
1.5 oz. vodka
.5 oz. triple sec
3 oz. Canna Blue-berry Pomegranate
Shake with ice and serve straight
Garnish with a lime and cool down in style!
And don’t forget this Saturday from 8:00 AM-2:00 PM, Canna Energy will be a vendor at the community yard sale in Mt. Juliet, TN. Proceeds from the sale of vendor spaces will go directly to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, so come on out to 547 N. Mt. Juliet Rd. to browse all the vendors, grab a can of Canna Energy and Support this wonderful cause!
The History of Hemp
You may know that hemp is an extremely versatile plant with thousands of applications, but did you know that hemp has actually been cultivated and grown intentionally for thousands of years? Yes, the same product found in Canna Energy drinks was one of the very first plants to ever be domesticated and farmed, precisely because of its versatility and specifically its use in making fibers. It was first cultivated in China over 4,500 years ago, and although it began as a source of fiber, eventually it was used to make clothes, shoes, and even paper before papyrus was invented! Hemp growth and production spread from China to the surrounding areas of Asia and Europe, and the rest is history.
By the 1500s, hemp had been brought to the Americas by the Spaniards, and it became a very important crop in the New World. The North American colonies cultivated it during the period of settlement and the subsequent American Revolution, and George Washington himself was a hemp farmer! Hemp farming and production continued as a widespread practice until long after the Civil War and into the 20th century.
Eventually, however, the stigma around marijuana use and the bourgeoning logging industry would lead to hemp farming being taxed out of sustainability, and its production is only just now beginning to pick up steam again. Fortunately, many are realizing that hemp is one of the most agriculturally efficient and ecologically responsible crops in the world, and that the myriad of uses for it are good enough reasons to incentivize its growth. Individual states are beginning to revoke previous sanctions on hemp farming and research ways to replace existing products with the much cheaper and more versatile hemp equivalents.
I has been a rocky road in the past, but hemp is not going anywhere! So when you pop open a can of Canna Energy, remember that you are really drinking a can of history—and if he could, George Washington would probably drink a can with you.

Nashville Company Helps Us Find Five Ways To Increase Energy
Canna Energy Revs Up Your Metabolism With These Five Easy To Do Tips
If we could snap our fingers and be healthy, fit, and well rested, we would be happy campers. Right? But unfortunately we are not gifted with super human powers to do so. That is why we need a basic routine to follow daily to keep our body energized. Let's all join together to create healthy habits. Here are some great tips to get your energy going.
You have all heard it. Drink your 8 glasses of water daily. But if you are out in the sun all day, you need to replenish and drink more. Same goes for when you exercise. You will notice your mood shifting when you drink plenty of water. Your brain will appreciate it and so will the rest of your body. Have you had skin issues? Drink more water and see if that helps. Most of the time this will solve your acne problems. Of course, there is always such a thing as too much of a good thing. Just remember to be balanced. Too much water could be dangerous. So, do not overdo it.
Just remember to get your heart pumping every single day. If you have a job that requires you to sit a desk all day long, then you really to be aware of this. Maybe try doing sitting exercises throughout the day or sit on an exercise ball. If you are a parent, take advantage of your little one's energy levels and join them. It burns calories. Every little bit counts. If you are tired, still exercise. You will be surprised when you actually start to feel more energetic after getting up and moving. Stretching is key so do not forget to incorporate that into your routine. Also, with your cardio do not forget to do your toning exercises in addition to that. Muscle burns more calories at rest.
You are what you eat. It is so true. Eat a balanced and healthy diet. Look for bright vibrate colors when it comes to vegetables. Make smoothies and pack them with fruits, yogurt, and flaxseed. We know you cannot eat healthy all the time so allow those days where you splurge. Maybe make one day out of the week your treat day. That way you can still have those sinful foods but remain motivated to eat clean all the other days.
Take your vitamins. Your body needs you to fill in those gaps where you're not eating the appropriate amount of a certain vitamin. Do your research and make sure your taking vitamins with the appropriate amounts. There are actual vitamins out there that are said to improve energy. We all know the B vitamins help with our metabolism and energy levels. Just always make sure you do not take something that interferes with any of your other medications.
Canna Energy delivers “sustainable” energy by infusing 50 mg of hemp seed oil into every can. Hemp seed oil provides essential fatty acids including Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s in the right proportion for optimal benefit.By combining healthy essential fatty acids with many of the traditional energizing ingredients like B vitamins and taurine, we lower the glycemic index and provide a “sustainable” energy boost.
NOTE: Always consult a physician with your healthcare needs or changes.

Hemp and Sustainability
When people think of “hemp,” they usually think about cannabis, or those necklaces with seashells that were popular in the late 90s. But what most don’t know is that hemp is actually a vital and sustainable crop that can be used as a source of raw material that will actually help, rather than hurt, the environment. We just celebrated Earth Day as a nation, and what better way to honor than earth than to explore a new source of sustainable material?
The fact of the matter is that at the moment, human beings are using the world’s supply of forests at an untenable rate. Over 90% of our paper currently comes from trees, and many forests are currently in danger of being completely eradicated because of the high demand of paper, timber, and other tree products. If we continue to use timber at the current rate, we will run out forests and deprive the earth of their beauty and utility.
So what does hemp have to do with this? Well, most products made from trees can be made better, cheaper, safer, and at a greater volume per acre from hemp! Hemp plants require fewer chemicals to grow and can be utilized in many of the same ways trees can—as building materials, drywall, and more. In fact, if we were to use hemp in a sustainable way as a source of raw material, each hemp plant would save twelve trees.
That’s why it’s more important than ever to raise awareness about hemp and hemp products and educate people on its many legal and important uses. Hemp isn’t marijuana—it’s a new way forward and a tool we can use as a society to help ensure that our earth continues to be beautiful and full of life for many generations to come.

Prepare for a Healthy Summer with Canna!
The warmer months are upon us, and many people are starting to get serious about their health and fitness goals in anticipation of long afternoons spent at the lake or on the beach. In order to prepare to look and feel your best this summer, follow these steps!
- It’s all about attitude. All the exercise and healthy nutrition in the world won’t yield the desired results if you’re stressed out and bogged down with negative thoughts. In today’s anxiety-driven world it can be hard to keep your blood pressure low and your mind at ease, but it’s essential to your overall health. Meditation, breathing exercises, or even just getting out in nature for a few minutes when you start to feel stressed can do wonders for your mental health. Read a book, watch your favorite movie, bake cookies—whatever makes you feel like YOU are taking care of YOU!
- Nutrition, nutrition, nutrition! Having a balanced, whole-foods based diet is essential for looking and feeling your best, this summer and for the rest of your life. Pass on the processed food products and favor real, whole foods with vitamins and nutrients to support your health and cleanse your body. Healthy beverages are a part of this too! Cut back on the soda with all its high fructose corn syrup and opt for drinks like Canna Energy, which provide essential omega fatty acids your body needs to function at its best.
- Stay active! This doesn’t mean spending three hours a day every day in the gym. Sometimes this just means biking to work, walking to the coffee shop to meet your friend, or getting a couple miles in on the treadmill a few times a week. All it takes is a little effort to see results and start feeling better, and your muscles will thank you for it! No matter how you choose to do it, staying active and exercising is an essential part of your long-term health plan, and there are plenty of ways to stay moving!
Staying active and healthy is a must during the summer, and all year round. Canna Energy can be a great and fun part of your plan for healthy living, so check out our products today!
The Story of Canna Energy
At times there can be confusion about what exactly Canna Energy is, and where it came from. Some people assume it might not be legal, or it might cause a positive result on a drug test. But none of that is true! Canna Energy was created out of a desire to promote hemp and reignite excitement about its usage. This is because hemp is an incredibly efficient, green, eco-friendly source of raw material for all kinds of products, and the more it is used, the better!
Between beverages, paper products, building materials, and the literally hundreds of other things hemp can be used to for, we figured it would be insane not to promote it, and the first way we wanted to do that was to produce a great-tasting energy drink that gives you the kick you need to make it through the rest of the day without all the extra chemicals and artificial ingredients of other energy drinks.
We also wanted to be a part of the important process of destigmatizing the hemp industry: unlike marijuana, hemp products like Canna Energy have ZERO THC, and thus should freely be used without worry. We value taking care of our earth and know that in order to do that, we need to find more creative ways to use the resources we have—and that includes getting accurate information out there so folks aren’t scared of something that’s perfectly legal and safe.
So the next time you need an all-natural pick me up that won’t leave you tired two hours later and actually gives you a myriad of health benefits, reach for a can of Canna Energy and know that YOU are a part of the hemp revolution—one drink at a time.

How Does Canna Compare to Other Energy Drinks?
With a plethora of energy drinks and other beverages intended to give you a boost on the market, it’s hard to know which one to choose sometimes—and which one is best for you. Are they all basically the same inside the can? Or are there any important differences?
In terms of both actual ingredients and health benefits, Canna outweighs competitors like Red Bull and Monster on a multitude of fronts—especially considering its time on the market. Where other energy drinks that might be considered “seasoned vets” in the industry have been on the market for years, Canna was only released in January 2014 and has already sold over 900,000 cans. So let’s take a look at why that is and just a few of the reasons that Canna Energy is the superior energy drink.
Canna’s commitment to natural ingredients and wellness makes for a drink full of energy, caffeine and hempseed oil—and nothing else. As a matter of fact, the only “synthesized” ingredient is the caffeine. Everything else is completely natural and good for you, unlike other energy drinks which are mainly energy and sugar—or aspartame, which has been linked to a whole host of diseases and health problems, in the “sugar free” versions. Even the hempseed oil, which we’ll discuss more in depth below, is emulsified into the drink using straight, natural Vitamin E, rather than fake chemicals. We don’t believe high energy should come at a high price to your body.
Whereas other energy drinks only provide you with a “boost” in the short term before you crash from the sugar high, Canna Energy has health benefits that go beyond helping you stay up to finish that paper. As we’ve discussed before, hempseed oil is one of the “essential fatty acids” that your body needs to function properly—keyword “essential”! Essential fatty acids including hempseed oil are linked with lowering your risk of heart disease, cancer, and other maladies. For a drink that gives you energy and improves your health for the future, choose Canna Energy every time.
The Booming Hemp Industry in Tennessee
As of last year, Tennessee is one of only four states to begin the process of formally regulating the industrial production of hemp. Even among the states that have legalized industrial hemp production—Oregon, Vermont, Colorado and Tennessee—only Colorado and Tennessee are taking concrete steps to ensure the establishment of a thriving hemp economy. Tennessee may very well soon be the leading producer of hemp in the entire country!
There are many economic advantages to encouraging industrial hemp production, not the least of which is that it is estimated at present to be a $500 million dollar industry in the United States alone. Check out a few of the amazing things hemp can do!
- Hemp is a more quickly available and cheaper source of paper products than trees. Not only can hemp produce more paper per acre than trees, it grows faster and is cheaper to harvest and produce. Making paper from hemp also issues in less pollution, so it’s good for the environment too!
- Hemp is a better substitute for traditional cotton products. The fiber derived from hemp is stronger and more lucrative per acre than cotton. It can be grown in more varied climates and circumstances, and requires fewer pesticides to keep the plants healthy while they grow. In fact, hemp itself is a natural weed repellent!
- Hemp derivatives can be used in construction as a substitute for wood materials. These derivatives are cost-effective, multi-purpose and extremely flexible in their use!
- There is evidence that hemp could be converted to a clean, renewable energy source. Because of the immense yield of the hemp plant relative to the amount of space it takes to grow it, hemp has the potential to be the clean and renewable energy of the future.
There are literally thousands of other possible uses and applications of the hemp plant, and more are being discovered every day. And of course, one of the best uses is in Canna Energy products! The health benefits of hemp oil (an essential fatty acid your body needs to succeed) cannot be underestimated. We are excited about working to encourage the hemp industry in the state of Tennessee, and beyond!
What is the Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana?
You may be wondering, with the presence of a very familiar-looking leaf on our label, does this product have marijuana in it? The answer is no—the trace amount of THC (the psychoactive compound in marijuana) that can be found in hemp oil and other hemp products is so minuscule it is barely measurable. But, hemp products and marijuana are derived from the same plants! The difference, in both usefulness and legality, comes from the how the plants are cultivated and the genetic changes they undergo during the farming process.
The Science of Hemp
Both hemp and marijuana come from the cannabis plant. But whereas marijuana is usually grown in carefully controlled environments at specific temperatures and in specific lighting, hemp can flourish just about anywhere, including outside in large fields, and requires much less direct supervision to thrive. This is because those who grow marijuana are primarily interested in growing plants with lots of high-quality buds (the “flower” of the cannabis plant), but hemp farmers are able to make use of the entirety of the plant without regard to its specific chemical content.
Chemically speaking, marijuana is bred for its THC content—which is what produces the “high.” Hemp plants have another chemical compound, called CBD, that is found in much greater proportions than THC and may even counteract its effects.
The Legality of Hemp
Because of its connection to marijuana, which is illegal in most states and many countries, hemp farming has historically gotten a bad reputation. However, with the advent of better science and better access to accurate scientific information, things are beginning to change. Countries from China to Chile currently grow hemp for industrial purposes, and it has become a $500 million dollar industry in the United States.
So no, there is no “marijuana” in Canna Energy products. But the cannabis plant itself has many completely legal and incredibly innovative uses and benefits in health, science, and industry. As more and more uses for the hemp plant are discovered, its acceptance will only grow, and Canna Energy will be there for every step of the way!
How to Live a Healthy Lifestyle in Nashville, TN
Being healthy means different things to different people and can be measured in different ways. Many things that add to the health of your mind and body are choices that can be chosen. From food to drink and thoughts to activities, everything we do adds or takes away from our state of health. Below are some basic guidelines that can give you a healthy base to grow from:
(1) Choose Healthy Food Options
Typically, whether you are eating out or just strolling through the grocery store, you have decisions to make that will impact your health. Chronic bad food choices lead to weight gain and other health problems that can prevent you from doing activities you want to do or live the life you want to live. In addition, unhealthy foods like sugar, processed grains, processed meats and dairy and more can lead to mental affects that can leave you with a foggy brain and moody attitude mixed with anxiety.
(2) Healthy Beverages
Healthy beverages range from water to kombucha and herbal tea to healthy alternative to energy drinks. There is a beverage for your every craving, but there is sometimes a time lag in the shift of your tastebuds that can leave you discouraged and craving your soda or unnatural energy drink. Make the change and choose beverages that you do not have to sacrifice on flavor, like Canna Energy which offers a great flavor without the preservatives and fake coloring chemicals that you find in other beverages. You will feel energized and ready to take on the world. Check out the healthy alternative to energy drinks in Nashville, TN.
(3) Positive Thoughts
It may sound weird, especially since thoughts are pretty much invisible, but thoughts and attitude have a tremendous affect on your health. Constant and chronic negative thoughts about life and people around you can lead to depression, anxiety and other medical conditions that are hard to overcome and can affect your ability to perform daily tasks. Positive thoughts go a long way. People can feel your energy and see your thoughts written all over your face. You will be more likely to have positive interactions if you are thinking and displaying a positive attitude. Try starting with complimenting others around you!
(4) Exercise and Movement
There is always an opportunity to move your body. In a time when “hitting the gym” is as popular as going to the coffeehouse, many think that you need a gym membership and all the gear, clothing etc to workout or move your body. This is totally untrue. Dancing, walking, crawling and jumping are all movements and they can be done without equipment or a gym. Try practicing some type of movement everyday. Not only is a great way to strengthen the body and keep it limber, it is an amazing way to let off steam and stress and keep your brain and oxygen levels healthy!
Laughing has been known as something we do when something is funny, but what if laughter could make things funny. Try laughing before anything is funny. Oxygen supply to the brain and attitude are lifted in this exercise.

Energy Drink Alternatives made with Hemp
Energy! This is something we all want, and few really have. Sometimes you do not know that your energy or health levels are low until you make a change that then reveals a contrast between what you DID feel like and what you feel like NOW that you have made a change and feel better, more energized and healthier. We live in a world today where we cannot survive if we are constantly tired. This “go-go-go” world is full of demands, and stopping could leave you swept under by the everyday activities and stresses. The good news is there are things you can do that will provide you with more energy to increase performance in everyday activities.
Health is different for everyone, but energy is the same no matter who you are. It is the endurance and strength to do your everyday tasks and more, and it is accompanied by the desire to do so. Can you imagine waking up in the morning and being excited to go out into the day and be productive? Can you feel what it would feel like to jump on your dirt bike again and ride with speed over the jumps, and feel great while doing it? Energy is for the adrenaline junkie, the new mom, the corporate executive and the college student. We all NEED energy to survive! Here is our way of getting it: Canna Energy.
We have all seen the energy drinks in Nashville that are in the gas stations and bars that provide energy but not short of chemicals and weird flavors. Canna Energy is a hemp product made in America that supplies clean energy with a great flavor. Canna Energy is a national company, based in Denver CO., that is right here in Tennessee, spearheading the hemp industry in the United States. Hemp was a fiber of the foundation of the country, literally. It was used in the ropes that sailed the first ships to our nation and settled it as the United States. For a long time, though, it was banned, and we were unable to benefit from the amazing plant, Hemp! The times have changed, and so have the products available here. Our Hemp is grown in Canada and then cold pressed to extract the beneficial oils that provide us with a clean energy source with 80% essential fatty acids. Free of artificial flavors or colorings, Canna Energy is a combination of pure health and energy! Have a hangover? Reach for the coffee every morning to get by? Tired? Grab a Canna Energy in Nashville at one of our locations ( see website ) and get energized!
