Does CO2 Increase Marijuana Plant Yields?

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, June, 24th 2014 by THCFinder

In the process of chlorophyll photosynthesis CO2 is an essential component. In nature air contains 300 or 400 parts CO2 per million parts and is constantly supplied (by the wind). The marijuana plants take the CO2 out of the air very quick. If the amount of CO2 is reduced by a third, there will not be any photosynthesis so also no growth.

The exhaust system makes sure CO2 comes in with fresh air and gets rid of the warm air with too little CO2 in it. Because CO2 is heavier then O2, most of it is close to the ground. make sure that the fans mix the air so the CO2 can reach the marijuana plants. If you do not add extra CO2 to a closed grow environment it is necessary to continuously let the exhaust and ventilation system work while the lights are on. This will provide good conditions for photosynthesis and thus for development.

Limiting factors:

CO2, temperature, water and fertilizers could all be limiting factors. Not enough of one of the elements could slow the whole development of the marijuana plants down. With a higher level of CO2 in the air, the metabolism of the plant goes faster. If it rises to 1500 ppm, it will have to go with a temperature of 25- 30 degrees Celsius. Also the minimum humidity goes up from 40 to 60% and even the amount of fertilizers changes. If this is all done correctly though, the harvest can be 15 to 25% bigger in the same time (or less!).

If you want a strong marijuana plant with flowers close together and a short growth it is wise to artificially add CO2. This technique is very difficult so only experienced growers should try it.  Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about growing marijuana plants.

When to use artificial supplements of CO2:

When you have a heat problem and the exhaust system doesn’t work properly you could try using artificial CO2. Everything accelerates when you do this, so if it’s not strictly necessary. Don’t do this the first few times you grow marijuana. When you are more experienced it can increase productivity and gain time.

CO2: not easy to measure.

The devices you need to measure the CO2- level are very expensive, although there is a chemical measure process but you can only do this once with the equipment: a glass tube divided into degrees and a syringe. The tube is filled with a reactive substance for CO2. The syringe is filled with the air that you want to test. Break the tube at the two ends and attach it to the syringe. The air should flow through the tube and the reactive substance changes color: this indicates the CO2 level.

Purple Urkle - Indica

Purple Urkle comes from Mendo Purps pheno and is native to the notorious green triangle in northern California. It is characterized by unusually long orange hairs covering small, dense, purple nugs when properly grown and harvested. The color is a purple much like that found on quality strains of Lavender, although despite common misconception, the two are not related.

Australian Senator Says Denying Medical Marijuana Is "Cruel"

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, June, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
aussie-senator-denying-mj-is-wrongAustralia isn't exactly the head of the marijuana community... But we can't forget about our pothead friends down under! This somewhat isolated continent is working just as hard on their marijuana reform as the rest of the world. And they're definitely making progress, now that their politicians are beginning to see that marijuana isn't a problem... But maybe denying people the right to smoke it is. Patients especially need the healing powers of this plant and those in positions of political influence need to know about it the most!
 
The Senator, Richard di Natale, is a doctor as well. He says that the evidence is more then clear that cannabis can be extremely effective against fighting specific illnesses. He stated in an interview with Nine Network that he "just thinks it's cruel to deny people the option just because there's some stigma associated with it." The negative stigma associated with marijuana doesn't even really have ground to stand on anymore, considering that the arguments against it were that it made women promiscuous and caused insanity. Both of those have been disproven. Not to mention the false bottomed argument that marijuana is a gateway drug, a theory that got booted out of the door years ago.
 
Senator Natale went on in the interview to say, "We're going to push to try and get people on all sides of politics to back this reform. The science and the evidence is very, very clear." In addition, the co-convener of the recently re-instated Parliamentary Group on Drug Policy and Law Reform Sharman Stone gave an amazing quote, saying "As a compassionate society, we must join other nations in allowing the regulated use of medical cannabis". The moves that Australia is making are so positive and patient-orientated, I can't help but give them a virtual round of applause.
 
Denying patients a natural, non habit forming medicine is absolutely cruel. Humans are designed to help others of their species, not watch them decay and die, while simultaneously suffering through something like cancer and chemotherapy. The medicines that are given to patients that are suffering are sometimes worse then the affliction itself. Marijuana has no side effects, is relatively cheap (compared to chemo therapy, RSO is basically free when you really think about the medical costs of the aforementioned procedure), and can be produced far faster then man made garbage. Marijuana is not a problem, it is a cure.

Philadelphia City Council Votes To Decriminalize Marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, June, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
philadelphia-votes-to-decrim-mj
The domino effect is starting to sweep the east coast. Not even... It seems as if every state on the colder coast is working on marijuana reform. While those in California have been happy that they've gotten so far ahead, east coasters get things done... Fast. There's no time to waste when there's laws to be changed! Philadelphia is hopping on that train. Last week, their city council voted to decriminalize possession of up to an ounce. Meaning that if you get caught with that amount, you'll get a $25 ticket.
 
While the plant will remain illegal, this will allow people to get away with the more minor infractions. The absolutely ridiculousness of the laws pertaining to marijuana get people locked up for years, sometimes their entire lives. A lot of these people don't even commit violent crimes, they're just people who enjoy lighting a plant on fire and inhaling the smoke. The bill correctly addresses the problem of arresting people for minor amounts of bud, stating that such infractions "increases the number of people with life changing criminal records". The vote at the city council passed 13-3 in Philadelphia last Thursday.
 
Police in Philly will still be able to arrest those who are caught with less then one ounce, so it's important to remember that you still need to be polite to the cops. The nicer you are to them, the less chance you have of getting a ticket... Or worse. While you still might be cuffed for toking or carrying bud in public, this is definitely a step in the right direction for cannabis on the east coast. As of right now, Philly, New York, Florida, and Ohio have medical marijuana bills at some point in the voting process. Let's hope that these measures pass and patients can get the medicine that they need without having to worry about federal consequences.
