Five Cannabis Facts You Should Know

cannabis-facts-you-should-know

1.     Marijuana and hemp are not the same thing! Some people think that hemp should be kept illegal alongside marijuana, even though the hemp plant won’t get you high if you smoke it. The two plants are used for different purposes. While marijuana is used for medical purposes, hemp is used for more industrial purposes like building, clothing, and paper.

2.     Americans used to consider it patriotic to grow hemp. When the states were still just 13 colonies, the law in 1916 required settlers to grow up. It was used for rope, sails, and clothing and both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned hemp farms. There was even a draft of the Declaration of Independence written on hemp paper. Not only that but Betsy Ross sewed the flag with hemp made products!

3.     In ancient China, Ma (marijuana) was used for clothing, medicine, fuel, and food for as far back as 6,000 BC. But the use of the plant in a medical sense dates back even further to 2737 BC. The Red Emperor Shen Nung is credited with writing a document called the Herbal, which is a list of various herbs, which includes marijuana. Additionally, in 2 AD, Hua T’o used the female plant (so probably flowers) and red wine as an anesthesia while he preformed painful surgeries including loin incisions and organ grafts.

4.     A group of 5,000 smokers were examined by UCSF ad University of Alabama showed that people who smoke a few joints a week actually have a stronger external blowing stronger lung capacity than non-users. In 2005, UCLA released a paper that shows marijuana may actually help to prevent the formation of lung cancer, unlike tobacco. Tobacco contains nicotine and is a known carcinogen, while cannabis contains cannabinoids and THC, which help to defeat and prevent cancer.

5.     Hemp is an extremely versatile product that could actually save the world if used correctly. As humans, we are wasteful and the packing that contains most of what we consume ends up in landfills. It rarely gets recycled and contributes to the growing waste problem that the world faces. Hemp can be made in to clothing, canvas, rope, paper, food, and the seeds can be turned in to fuel. This would eliminate the need for cotton, gasoline, nylon, and the destruction of trees. After the hemp plant is harvested, the soil is actually in better condition then before the hemp plants were there, unlike tobacco. Legalizing hemp and cannabis would produce thousands of jobs, another thing that is needed in such a suffering economy.

Afghan Kush - Indica

Tons of dull orange hairs gives this indica a orangish brownish tint. Soft green color that is overpowered by the thick hairs. Afghan Kush smells like a mango orange farm with a hint of funk to it that is comparable to an old musty basement. Does not have the trademark Kush smell, but it does have its own unique odor and it works well for night time use. Provides an energetic burst of energy right off the bat. After a few minutes it provides a very relaxed focus feeling. Keeps you right on the edge of energetic and couch locked. Great for anxiety and relaxing.

Eight Edible Rules

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
edible-rules-article-thcfEdibles have been in the negative spotlight for a while now, following a few reports that suggested the tasty treats had been the cause of murder and suicide. But are edibles really that dangerous? No. Not if you know what you’re doing. While ingesting THC and passing it through your digestive system does actually increase potency (from Delta-9 to Delta-11), edibles don’t usually make people freak out. But if you’re worried about taking too much, here are eight rules for ingesting edibles.
 
  • Body mass, gender, body chemistry, metabolism, and age all effect how an edible will treat you. When buying edibles, ask your bud tender what they would recommend for your body type and age. THC effects everyone differently and it’s important to know how strong something might be before you eat too much.
  • If you’re a heavy cannabis user, an edible won’t effect you the same as someone who’s a newbie. If your bud tender isn’t asking you if you’ve smoked before, ask them what they think and if they have a different recommendation. 
  • Eating edibles on an empty stomach can have negative consequences. It is recommended that you treat edibles much like Vicodin or Percocet. 
  • Measure your edible doses in milligrams. For example, if you get a 100mg bar of chocolate and it splits in to 10 pieces, each piece will roughly contain 10mgs.
  • Taking less right off the bat is better than eating the whole edible. If you think it won’t effect you like others, you’re probably wrong. While you can always eat more of the edible, you can’t make yourself eat less. As a newbie edible eater, you need to pay attention to this kind of thing. 
  • Every edible making company has different dosages, which can prove to be difficult when you’re trying to find one you like. The best suggestion is to try multiple different companies until you find one that you like and that gives you the feeling that you’re looking for.
  • Don’t expect the same high that you get from smoking a bowl. Edibles effect the mind differently and also because of the small amount of membranes that you have in the stomach. The THC doesn’t absorb in the same way in your stomach as it does in your lungs.
  • Always remember that as of right now, there is no mandatory THC testing when it comes to edibles. Edibles are extremely hard to dose and Colorado hopes to have an edible testing department soon. Edible companies jump all over the place with their dosing information. As said above, find something that you like and stick with it!

What Is A "Marijuana Tolerance Break" And Should You Take One?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
tolerance-break-should-you-take-oneThere a handful of reasons why people take a break from consuming marijuana. The most likely reason is that you need to get a job, and that your desired employer drug tests. The second most common reason is that the break from consuming marijuana is court ordered do to forced rehab or probation or some other unfair reason. But another reason is what many refer to as a ‘marijuana tolerance break.’ A marijuana tolerance break is a good idea if you are not getting as high as you used to, and wish to get more out of the experience of consuming marijuana.
 
Most veteran marijuana consumers have been there one time or another. You puff and puff and puff, but you don’t seem to get that super baked feeling anymore. The quality of nugs or oil you are consuming likely isn’t the problem. The problem is likely that your tolerance is through the roof. This is becoming more and more prevalent as dabs grow in popularity. Most of the people I know that consume a large amount of dabs day in day out complain that they don’t get as high as they used to, and there’s just no way they can get high off of flower anymore, no matter what the quality is.
 
If this is you, maybe you should consider taking a marijuana tolerance break so your body’s tolerance level can go down. I know, taking a break from consuming marijuana doesn’t sound that appealing. I personally consume marijuana mainly to relax from stressful, work-filled days, and without marijuana I would probably go off on a person or two daily for being stupid. But, if you can handle the off days, I assure you it will be worth it. I took a few marijuana tolerance breaks during the last twenty plus years I’ve been consuming marijuana, and I can say first hand that the high you get when you start consuming again is well worth it. It felt like the first time all over again with the giggles and whatnot.
 
How long of a marijuana tolerance break one should consider taking depends on the individual. If you consume like Jay Smoker, you may want to take a week or two off (he smokes like a broken chimney). If you are like me, and work all day most days and can’t consume, a few days should be enough to get your tolerance level back in line. Of course, realize that once you start consuming again, your tolerance will go up again, so revisit the marijuana tolerance break approach again from time to time.
 
Realize that I’m saying take a break, not quit altogether. You would be taking a break in order to get higher in the future. Remember, quitters never prosper! Have you ever taken a marijuana tolerance break? If so, how did it go? Do you have any tips? How long did you go in between sessions? Leave a comment so that other readers can benefit from your experiences.

Mango Kush - Hybrid

Mangos parentage is part KC 33 and part Mango from a hippie fellow who grew it for 30 years, then let KC use it as a cross in 1991. It is a 100 percent indica strain that grows large and produces prodigiously. Dont let Mangos slow start fool you - this variety will eventually rival the impressive size of many KC varieties, which are especially intended for outdoor grows. If you want Mango to stay at an average size in an outdoor garden, allow only 3 weeks of vegetative time and transplant outdoors as late as July in Northern latitudes. Mango can also be grown in an indoor garden, but needs a lot of space.
