Can Marijuana Help Prevent Suicide?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, January, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
marijuana-can-help-prevent-suicideOne of the arguments against marijuana is that it may contribute to depression and suicide. Anti-pot smokers like to argue that stoners are seriously lazy and depressed but unfortunately for them, a study from Germany has been released saying that places where marijuana laws are lax and the plant is well loved, rates of suicide have actually decreased, rather than increase. Since suicide is most often caused by stress and marijuana takes away stress, it definitely makes sense that cannabis would allow people to release their stress, causing a drop in suicide rates.
 
California supplies anxiety patients with medical cards and both Delaware and New Mexico have PTSD listed on their lists of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana. In these areas, there's been a 5% reduction in suicide rates, especially in males age 20-29, according to this study. The results suggest that since those that use marijuana drink considerably less alcohol, which is a serious depressant. If stoners drink less, that would also mean that the amount of drunk driving accidents may decrease in these areas as well and that the benefits aren't just restricted to those suffering from depression.
 
Most subjects tested were male, since females are four times less likely to commit suicide and succeed, according to researchers. The bottom line of this study? Legalizing marijuana leads to an improvement in the mental well being of most young adult males, resulting in fewer suicides. So the next time that some tries to tell you that cannabis promotes depression and suicide, just remember that depression and suicide are caused by stress. Marijuana is used as a treatment for both of those illnesses so it only makes sense that places with lax cannabis laws would have lower rates of suicide.

Grow Bigger Marijuana Buds With The Right Nutrients

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, January, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder
grow-bigger-budsWhether you’re growing marijuana for personal use or you’re looking to make a little extra money on the side, you always want to have the biggest buds. The buds are where you get the most “meat” on the marijuana plant, and you’ll certainly be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor for much longer with bigger buds. But, achieving big buds isn’t always a matter of plant genetics or complete luck. You have to put in a lot of effort, and you have to understand exactly what the plant needs at each stage of its life.
 
For starters, you have to understand the basics of nutrient uptake within the plant. Nutrients act like food for the plant to thrive and grow tall. Of course, nutrients are also largely responsible for the size of the buds by the time the harvest comes around. Nutrients aren’t the only variable, but they’re wildly important. The main triplet of nutrients that you’ll often come across in most fertilizers consists of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). On most fertilizers, there is a little “NPK” value that indicates how much of each nutrient is in the fertilizer.
 
For the most part, you’ll want a fertilizer with a higher concentration of nitrogen during vegetative state. Nitrogen is primarily responsible for the overall growth and healthy function of the plant. It helps the plant thrive during vegetative state and it also sets the stage for success once your plants enter the flowering stage. When a plant reaches flowering stage, they require a different kind of fertilizer concentration—one that is higher in phosphorus and potassium than nitrogen. At that point, it’s a good idea to switch to a “bloom fertilizer” to help out with bud growth. Click here to get a free nutrients guide for marijuana plants.
 
The Benefits of high quality nutrients
 
This is really the traditional way to grow larger buds, and it has worked to a certain degree for years. But, there are a lot more than just three nutrients at play in fertilizers and inside the living marijuana plant. It can be hard to hit the right balance of nutrients during vegetative state and flowering state. If you could find a fertilizer product that would take the nutrient guesswork out of your hands, then you’d probably jump at that opportunity. One such product is Marijuana Booster, a revolutionary growth program that can guarantee you a good return on your investment. If you want bigger buds from your harvest, then Marijuana Booster can certainly help out.

New York Wants Medical Marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, January, 23rd 2014 by THCFinder

As a better known east coast state, New York is working hard to get themselves on the cannabis train before it leaves them coughing and stranded in the Dark Ages. The state is working feverishly to get medical marijuana in to hospitals, allowing patients who really need it to get access to the only medicine that may be able to save them and help them to recover. Andrew Cuomo's medical cannabis plan allows up to 20 hospitals to use medical marijuana to treat illnesses and health problems.
 
In a poll done of New York residents, 49% thought that Cuomo should pass legal medical marijuana for the whole state, skipping this step all together. Only 28% said that this step was the way to go. Both parties are right, as the pilot step will allow patients who really need cannabis to get their hands on it. A full medical legalization would guarantee that all patients could get their medicine, not just the ones that have access to the specific hospitals that would get the cannabis under the pilot step. All patients that need cannabis should have access to it, but if this is the first step that needs to be taken, so be it.
 
Allowing medical marijuana in New York would at least add one more state on to the constantly growing list. We all know that the plant shouldn't be illegal anyway, considering that it is nature. But even with the pilot step, people who can benefit from cannabis will at least be able to get their medicine. The state may not be ready to fully legalize, considering that when polled, 54% were opposed to putting forth a model similar to Colorado. Even though they're opposed, that number is considerably small and it's beginning to look like New York could be the next medical state.
