University Of Colorado Begins Mapping Cannabis Genome

Category: News | Posted on Mon, February, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
mapping-the-cannabis-genome-projectWith cannabis recently legalized in parts of the country, scientists who have been sitting on their hands for years can now study the plant in its natural form – scientists like those at the University of Colorado Boulder, who have announced the launch of the Cannabis Genome Research Initiative. The goal of the eighteen-month endeavor is to map the DNA makeup of cannabis, and to provide more knowledge about the plant’s history.
 
“Despite the fact that cannabis is one of the most valuable and historically important crop species, we know comparatively little about the plant,” says Nolan Kane of CU‘s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, who is leading the project. According to Kane, the data gathered through mapping the cannabis genome will allow growers to explore “more efficient and cost-effective cannabis breeding — choosing what to breed with what in smarter ways.” Kane doesn’t dismiss the progress already made by cannabis cultivators – far from it – but feels his research will make things easier.
 
“The tools I will develop will allow a better prediction of which plants are desired without the expense of growing, measuring, chemotyping, etc., all of those plants,” says Kane. “This is a huge additional expense and waste of time that can be avoided by modern, marker-assisted selection.” Kane says another major application of cannabis genome research is to breed more advanced, economical forms of hemp. “This is a potentially very valuable crop for agriculture in Colorado and other places,” he states. “It could be used for biofuels, food and fiber production for high-quality paper, clothing, rope, so many purposes.”
 
Quick to reassure that their research has nothing to do with Genetic Modification, or the production of GMOs, Kane explains that, “With our work, the genetic variation isn’t altered, you are just choosing what to breed with what in smarter ways. People have been breeding animals and plants for 10,000 years or more, so the basic approaches are not new, just substantially improved in terms of efficiency.”

Super Green Crack - Sativa

Super Green Crack - Sativa

Green Crack was originally bred in Athens, GA in the 1970s with the birth name of Cush. It was later renamed "Green Crack" by none other than Snoop Dogg because of its extreme potency and the crave to keep smoking it. Green Crack is extremely popular in Southern California with both medical marijuana patients for its strong sativa effects, and recreational users who love its sweet taste and happy high. Green Crack has a medium-green color punctuated with orange and bluish hairs. It has a tangy, fruity smell (thus the nickname "Mango") and the taste is sweet as well. There are two strains of Green Crack: one that is almost pure Sativa and one that is 75% Indica. The better known phenom is the sativa dominant strain, and the only sign of indica genetics being present are the tight nugs.

Next Five States Predicted To Legalize

Category: Legalization | Posted on Mon, February, 17th 2014 by THCFinder
states-legalizing-marijuana
2014 is going to be a big year for cannabis. There are a lot of states that are beginning to rethink their marijuana laws and are beginning to disregard the pressure from anti-cannabis protestors. With Colorado still making a large sum of money due to the legalization of cannabis, other states are pushing lawmakers to follow in the rocky state's steps. Who is predicted to be next in the great race for cannabis legalization?
 
- Alaska
While being a conservative state, Alaska has a not just a history of openness with cannabis but a very libertarian perspective on things. Marijuana will be on the ballot August 19th and citizens will be able to vote on whether they want legalization or to continue prohibition. The Alaskan ballot states that people over 21 can legally possess an ounce of marijuana, grow up to six plants (three in the flowering stage), as well as allow manufacture, sale, and possession of the plant.
 
- California
California has tried to put legalization through once already in 2010 but it failed. In the last three years, cannabis approval has snowballed, showing in a recent poll that 56% of respondents approve of cannabis legalization. In order to get the proposition on the ballot, Californians need to gather 500,000 valid signatures by February 24th. If this doesn't happen, the measure will continue to gain support and hopefully pass in 2016.
 
- Massachusetts
The state has passed medical laws but hasn't implemented them as of right now. Activists think that again, 2016 is the year that this state will probably see legalization of cannabis. 58% of registered voters polled by MassCann and NORML support the Massachusetts cannabis legalization idea.
 
- Oregon
A legalization ballot was presented in 2012 but failed, with almost 54% saying no to marijuana legalization. But when voters were asked again, 57% said that they would vote yes to legalize in 2014. In fact, this change happened a mere six months after the measure failed to be approved. The sudden increase in support comes from the details included in the ballot. The first time around, people were allowed to cultivate unlimited amounts of cannabis. Now, they are working on specified limits for citizens to be able to consume and grow.
 
- Washington DC
The District Of Columbia is the nation's capitol and home to the government that claims our favorite plant should still be illegal. However, the city seems to be pretty cannabis friendly, as the city council unanimously voted in January to decriminalize the plant, making the possession of under an ounce as harsh as getting a parking ticket. Voters in DC were polled and it seems as if they favor legalizing marijuana 63% to 34%.

Cannabis Mojito

Category: Recipes | Posted on Fri, February, 14th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabis-mojito-recipe
As a bartender of almost six years, I can appreciate a greatly made drink (even though I don't indulge in alcohol myself). Interesting drinks make the most popular drinks and the mojito has to be one of my all time favorite drinks to make. Not only is it great for the summer months but the sugar, lime, and rum compliment each other perfectly. Thanks to this recipe, I now know that cannabis can also be added to the mix, creating an even better mix of flavors for those who enjoy a d rink with their bud!
 
What You'll Need;
1 1/2 oz cannabis rum
Lime juice
4 tbsp sugar
2 oz soda water
Ice cubes
Cannabis leaf (optional, for a garnish if you're feeling fancy)
 
Grab a blender and add in the lime juice, rum, and sugar. You can add as much or as little of the cannabis rum as you want. Be careful, as the effects of cannabis and alcohol vary greatly between people. It's very important to know your tolerance of the two substances combined. Blend the three substances together on low for about thirty seconds. Then add in the soda water and stir everything together. Don't shake it! Soda water will blow up in your face if you attempt to try. Get a glass and muddle two mint sprigs at the bottom, being sure to crush them up well so that you can really smell the mint. After that, add in your ice cubes. Pour the contents of the blender in to the glass. Use your cannabis leaf as a garnish and you're ready to enjoy your cannabis infused mojito!
