Topping Vs Tying Down

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, February, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
topping-vs-trying-down
There are many methods to growing cannabis and one that is largely debated upon is whether to top the plants or to tie them down. The two methods are both used to get the same end result, a stronger, healthier plant that will yield a greater amount of buds at the end of the grow season. Some growers even combine methods and both top and tie the plants. This gives them a shorter, bushier appearance, with many tops, resulting in a large amount of product.
 
Topping is a very easy process. The grower simply waits until the plant is about three or four nodes tall and then begin to pluck the new growths from the tips. You'll be able to see the part that you're supposed to remove, nestled in between the leaves. Remove this piece and in it's place, two tops will start to grow. Some growers only prefer this method, especially if hight is an important factor to them. Primarily used singularly by outdoor growers, since the plants can get so large this way.
 
When the grower decides to tie the plants down, a cotton string is wrapped around the tops, dragging them downwards and promoting an outward growth, rather than upwards. Since this method doesn't include physically damaging the plant, some growers think that tying down the plants is far less stressful. But then again, as said above, there are plenty of growers that use both to maximize their yield. Tying plants down is perfect for micro grows because of the horizontal growth and is even reversible if you decide against it. Simply remove the strings. Be sure that if you choose this method, you do no tie the strings too tight. The plant will grow around the string, eventually cutting through itself and you can lose entire branches to this mistake.
 
Every grower has a different method of getting their plants to the correct place. Since every grower is different, every strain has the potential to be different. The choice in how the plants are grown is very important and greatly effects the outcome of the buds. Large amounts of stress and poor growing conditions will never give a good end result so be sure that you care for your plants in the best way that you see fit.

The Tolerance

Smoking a lot can lead to complications in a stoners life. While weed is great, as with everything, too much is not good. But while a recreational stoner usually has no problem taking a break, those who use the plant for medical reasons face complications. This includes the return of symptoms like chronic pain, nausea, and anxiety. Add this to the sometimes experienced loss of appetite and trouble sleeping when one stops using cannabis and you can have a seriously cranky human on your hands.
 
When you overload the cannabis receptors in your brain, it takes more THC to activate them. This means that you need to smoke more in order to get stoned. This can present an issue, especially for those who don't have a lot of money to be spending on bud. Patients especially need to get their usual dose of THC or they can't function normally throughout their daily tasks. And if more THC is needed to get the desired effect, then people are going to have to smoke more, meaning that they're going to spend more money that they may not really have.
 
If you're experiencing issues with the effect of THC, a tolerance break might be required. From what I've read, you're not supposed to intake any THC in this period but for some, the not sleeping and the problems with food are too much to bear. But instead of smoking the copious amount that you normally do, you should only be taking one or two hits and THAT'S IT! If you continue to smoke, you're not helping yourself. But cutting down this considerable amount should help to get you to a spot where smoking a bong load will get you blasted.
 
Feeling up to a challenge? Stop smoking for a week and then report back to me with your findings at highundlow@gmail.com or Contact@thcfinder.com . Tolerance breaks are really tough for some stoners so if you find it too frustrating, you don't have to test the theory.

Members Of Congress Tell Obama To Remove Marijuana From Schedule 1

Category: News | Posted on Thu, February, 13th 2014 by THCFinder
obama-congress-marijuanaToday 18 members of the United States Congress sent a letter to President Barack Obama calling on him to remove marijuana from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act. This issue has drawn a lot of press lately and there has been a lot of debate about what such a move would mean. On one end you have people like me that want it removed because it’s sound science. On the other end of the spectrum you have people like Kevin Sabet who think it will have zero impact, yet still want to keep things how they are.
 
The language of the letter is as follows:
 
We are encouraged by your recent comments in your interview with David Remnick in the January 27, 2014 issue of the New Yorker, about the shifting public opinion on the legalization of marijuana. We request that you take action to help alleviate the harms to society caused by the federal Schedule I classification of marijuana.
 
Lives and resources are wasted on enforcing harsh, unrealistic, and unfair marijuana laws. Nearly two-thirds of a million people every year are arrested for marijuana possession. We spend billions every year enforcing marijuana laws, which disproportionately impact minorities. According to the ACLU, black Americans are nearly four times more likely than whites to be arrested for marijuana possession, despite comparable marijuana usage rates.
 
You said that you don’t believe marijuana is any more dangerous than alcohol; a fully legalized substance, and believe it to be less dangerous “in terms of its impact on the individual consumer.” This is true. Marijuana, however, remains listed in the federal Controlled Substances Act at Schedule I, the strictest classification, along with heroin and LSD. This is a higher listing than cocaine and methamphetamine, Schedule II substances that you gave as examples of harder drugs. This makes sense.
 
Classifying marijuana as Schedule I at the federal level perpetuates an unjust and irrational system. Schedule I recognizes no medical use, disregarding both medical evidence and the laws of nearly half of th estates that have legalized medical marijuana. A Schedule I or II classification also means that marijuana businesses in states where adult or medical use are legal cannot deduct business expenses from their taxes or take tax credits due to Section 280E of the federal tax code.
 
We request that you instruct Attorney General Holder to delist or classify marijuana in a more appropriate way, at the very least eliminating from Schedule I or II. Furthermore, one would hope that that (sic) your Administration officials publicly reflect your views on this matter. Statements such as the one from DEA chief of operations James L. Capra that the legalization of marijuana at the state level is “reckless and irresponsible” serve no purposes other than to inflame passions and misinform the public.

VSOG - Sativa

The "Ocean Grown" OG Kush comes from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and is considered to be the strain that put Southern California buds on par with the flowers coming from up North. Developed over three generations and years of stabilizing as well as developing the perfect fertilizer / food for this particular strain, resulted in a phenomenal kush, said to be the strongest indica today. OG Kush, when properly grown, has the highest THC content of all kushes.
