Use Predators To Protect Your Marijuana Garden

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, March, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
predators-to-protect-your-gardenA natural method that makes smart use of biology involves using predators such as ladybugs, praying mantises, or even lacewings. Their qualities of garden protection are widely known, and so it is possible to buy them commercially bred.
 
The breeder should be able to tell you how they can be used most effectively and which insects they will eat. This information is useful once you know what type of insects to expect given your environment. Be aware though, that buying insects won’t work if your marijuana garden is small since there may not be enough food to support them.
 
Larger predators can also be used as means to protect your marijuana garden. If you are planting near a stream, it may be a good idea to encourage frogs, turtles, or lizards to frequent the area by leaving food there occasionally. Birds can also be persuaded to provide support, perhaps by leaving birdseed or even using a bird feeder. Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about pest control.
 
Subtlety is probably best because you will want to draw the least amount of attention and suspicion. Casual observers might be drawn to your marijuana planting area if there are swarms of insects, reptiles, or birds in the area. This is one more instance in which respecting the natural environment will help keep your marijuana plants safe, and enable them to grow well.
 
Organic Insecticides
 
Thanks to the organic movement it is easy to find organic insecticides wherever nonorganic insecticides are found. Organic insecticides usually work by mimicking the natural pesticides produced by the plant, only in highly concentrated amounts. Pyrethrum is one of the most powerful and therefore most popular organic insecticides and is effective against a wide range of pests. Read the label carefully and make sure to follow the printed procedures, especially if the substance needs to be water-diluted.
 
The one drawback to organic insecticides is that even these may be indiscriminate killers, harming the insects and mammals that you might already be employing in your garden’s defense. Unless your marijuana plants are truly being decimated, use any pesticide sparingly and with decreasing frequency as the plants mature, preferably stopping after they have left the critical early period of life.

Northern Jack Strain Review

Category: Nugs | Posted on Mon, March, 10th 2014 by THCFinder
northern-jack-weed
The Northern Jack strain is a hybrid cross between northern lights and the Jack Herer strain. It is an incredible looking bud, a deep hue of green with a crazy amount of orange hairs that not only make this bud great to look at but great for photography reasons as well. Not to mention that wherever there is green on these buds, there happens to be a thick sheet of trichomes present as well, giving Northern Jack the title of one of the best looking buds around.
 
With a smell full of citrusy, lemony accents, you would think that this strain would be pretty mellow. However, there is a skunky stench that emits from the bud, letting you know that it's a strong strain and not one to be messed with. If the smell alone doesn't get you, the taste will! This strain is perfectly complimented by your morning cup of coffee. And since it's a pretty even mix of both sativa and indica, you'll be able to go about your day normally and without any signs of pain or uncomfortableness. The taste still holds the fruity undertones and remains as sweet as ever, giving you a smooth hit that is sure to get you perfectly elevated for the day.
 
For the patients that are looking for a good strain to help them with the medical needs, Northern Jack gives just the right amount of healing power with a clear head high that won't leave you stuck on the couch all day... Unless that's where you want to be. You won't lose your motivation and if anything, the strain will increase your creativity as well as your productivity, making it a great wake and bake/sneaky work smoke break kind of strain. Providing a long lasting relief from the aches and pains that patients feel, it's highly recommended that you get some Northern Jack and give it a chance!

How To Dewax BHO

Category: Concentrates | Posted on Fri, March, 7th 2014 by THCFinder
how-to-dewax-bho
So sometimes when BHO is made, there are impurties that are left in the substance that some people don't want to smoke. And for good reason! Inhaling chemicals can cause breathing prbelms and no one wants to deal with that. It was suggested to me that I post something about this process. The following instruction was the best that I could find, as this process seems pretty complicated, especially to myself, someone who has never even dabbed before. With that being said, if this is not the preferred way to dewax BHO, I apologize and would like to hear how you do it! If you have a specific process to do this, I would love to hear it and you can email it to me at highundlow@gmail.com.
 
The first step is to acquire the oil in the preferred solvent. If you buy it, great. If you make it yourself, be sure to avoid putting yourself or others at risk. Once you've finished that, you're ready to start. You take a large jar and add near boiling water about 2/3 the way up the jar. For bigger batches, you should be using bigger jars such as gallons and pints work well for smaller batches. Be sure to heat the jar up gradually before this process to avoid serious cracking. Add the oil to the hot water with a spoon or a blade and put the lid on the jar, leaving it slightly loose. Be sure to wear thick gloves for this part, as you don't want to burn your hands. LIGHTLY shake the jar over a sink and depressurize the jar by loosening the top. You should hear a rush of air when this is done. Repeat this once and on the last time, close the jar tightly.
 
Shake the jar vigorously for about 30 seconds, take a small break, and then shake for another 30 seconds. Proceed to place the jar in a warm bath, then a cooler bath, then cold. Do this process over time, again to avoid cracking the glass. When the water in the jar has become cold, remove the oil layer from the top of the surface. Oil and water do not mix and the oil will rise to the surface as soon as you stop shaking the jar. Filter the water through a coffee filter and discard the water, as it is filled with the very impurities that you're trying to get rid of. Scrape up the remaining oil and add it to the puck in side of a stainless steel bowl and use a blowdryer on high to evaporate the water. You should rotate the bowl as you do this, making sure you get rid of every last drop of water. Now you're ready to dewax.
 
Again, this process is not mine and was found online. If this is not the proper process, I do apologize. This method stated that you take a bottle of acetone and fill a new jar about 3/4 of the way up. Heat the acetone up in a warm bath for this process but AVOID using flame at this point in the process. When the oil is in the acetone, gently stir it so that the oil fully dissolves. Then, place the lid on and lightly swirl the jar to mix everything together well. Place the jar in a warm bath for a bit, then run it under hot water from the tap, then place the tap on the hottest setting. This process allows the two substances to mix together fully.
 
Begin to run the jar under cooler and cooler water until it is eventually cold. Then, set the jar in a cold bath. You can even set it in the freezer. This process will allow you to see what looks like snowflakes in the jar. This is the wax gathering back together. After a few hours in the cold, the process should be complete. Remove it from the cold and filter it through a large coffee filter immediately, using a funnel and a new jar to catch the liquid underneath. You should now have a good amount of wax in the coffee filter by now. The wax will be dark at first so you can pour a little more acetone through the filter (be sure that it's clean). Let that wax dry.
 
The last step can go two different ways. You can smoke your water washed, dewaxed oil by letting the acetone evaporate and repeating the hair drying process in a stainless steel bowl. If you want to get an end result that is extremely clear and incredible, you can move on to the process of charcoal filtering. This stage simply includes adding clear acetone to your jar of dewaxed oil/acetone. Use a taller, wide mouthed jar for this stage. The oil and the acetone will mix freely. Get some powdered activated charcoal that is used for cleaning. This can be found at the health food store. Put in about 3 or 4 tablespoons, stir, and put the lid on.
 
This jar should sit overnight. In the morning, the dark wax should have vanished, leaving the dark impurities at the bottom of the jar. Get a piece of thin fishtank tube and use it to siphon the liquid out of the jar. You should insert the tube in to the jar about an inch from where the charcoal sits or else you will end up with charcoal in the product. Place the other end of the tube in a shorter jar and siphon out the liquid. Fill the charcoal jar with acetone again and you'll be able to repeat this process in another 12 hours. You're almost done, don't worry.
 
Once you have completed the second pull, you let the solvent in the jars evaporate really, really well. Then put the substance in a stainless steel bowl and repeat the hairdryer process. Chase the oil around the bowl until it sticks and won't move. Just be sure that you don't burn it in the process! This should leave you with an extremely potent end result and seems to be slightly similar to the process of making crappy weed in to edibles to get a better effect. Again, I hope that I didn't make any mistakes in this process and strongly recommend that you either email your methods to me or comment them. Just please be kind, as I said, I am unfamiliar with this process and it is difficult to find information about it online. I hope this was somewhat enjoyable!
