Photosynthesis In Marijuana Plants
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, March, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
One of the most important aspects of plant growth is photosynthesis. It’s something that all plants do and it effectively involves taking the available light and transforming it into energy. That’s really the basic definition of photosynthesis, but it goes a lot further than that. The plants receive light through various pigments on their exterior. Chlorophyll is the most abundant pigment in cannabis and most other green plants and so it is largely responsible for bringing in light energy.
In that way, cannabis leaves almost work like solar panels by extending the area that the plant can take in light. More leaves essentially represent more power producers because you have more energy entering into the plant. When the energy is taken into the plant, it is stored in chemical compounds like adenosine-triphosphate (ATP) and nicotinamide-adenine-dinucleotide-phosphate (NADPH2). These are compounds that are built to transfer energy throughout the plant. ATP is integral in the creation of carbohydrates and NADPH2 is integral in the synthesis of carbohydrates.
Of course, the plants need to work with something in order to create these carbohydrates. The name alone lets you know that carbohydrates have some mixture of carbon and hydrogen. In marijuana plants, they get those both of those elements from carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O). Obviously, CO2 is found in the atmosphere and water is generally provided by the grower (or other means in a natural environment). Download my marijuana grow bible and learn more about CO2 levels.
Plants can absorb CO2 from the atmosphere or from the soil. Water is, of course, absorbed through the roots and transferred into the plant itself. So, the light energy (in the form of ATP and NADPH2) comes together with CO2 and H2O to create carbohydrates (CH2O). As a result of this transaction, there is a spare O2 molecule that gets released into the air. Marijuana absorbs and utilizes all of the items required for photosynthesis and then releases oxygen into the atmosphere.

Medicated Butternut Squash Soup
Category: Recipes | Posted on Thu, March, 6th 2014 by THCFinder
For a mix of something that will medicate you and at the same time, be healthy, this recipe is for you! Butternut squash has awesome health benefits and especially with this cold weather, you can definitely enjoy a bowl of this on a cold night. Although the squash is definitely the best when bought from the local farmers market, you can find it during all seasons at the grocery store. The soup is very simple and doesn't take that long to make, plus you can freeze anything you don't eat for a easy snack later on!
What You'll Need;
2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
5 cups of vegetable stock
1 tablespoon chopped sage leaves
1 large onion, diced
3 tablespoons of cannabis-infused oil or butter
1 cup chopped carrots
1 ½ tablespoons of cannabutter to finish
1 cup chopped celery
3 lbs butternut squash
1.5 teaspoons of sea salt
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
Start by peeling the squash and cutting it in to two halves, making sure to remove the seeds. Cut the squash in to chunks and place them in a steamer basket for about 40 minutes. While that cooks, heat the oil in a large pot and add in the carrots, diced onion, and celery, along with the herbs that you have set aside. Sauté these veggies on medium for 20 minutes until they begin to brown.
Add the squash, vegetable stock (or water), and the salt to the pot. Simmer everything together for another 20 minutes, making sure to cover the pot. After the soup is done cooking, puree it in the blender in batches to make sure that everything gets blended together well. Put the soup back in the pot and add in the salt and pepper to taste, if you'd like. The salt and pepper are both optional.
Looking for a soup with a little more of a kick? Take the cannabutter than you have set aside and set it atop the soup. The butter will melt in to the meal and will give you an extra boost of stoned! You can also serve the butter on a slice of bread if you don't want to add the butter in to the soup itself! This recipe serves four but as said above, you can either share with friends or freeze and save the rest of the soup for a snack later! Enjoy!

Five Important Things To Know About CBD
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, March, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
There are over sixty different compounds that are found in the cannabis plant which we have grown so fond of. Out of these sixty, however, it is THC and CBD that are found in the highest levels and therefore the most studied. When medicating with cannabis, it is the substance know as CBD that treats illnesses such as cancer, epilepsy, and arthritis. CBD is not psychoactive and doesn't get the user stoned, making it a good option for children suffering with diseases that don't want to use the harsh medicines put out by big pharma. There is a lot to know about CBD but these are the five most important things that you should know about this beneficial substance.
1. CBD levels vary from strain to strain. Some kinds of cannabis have higher CBD content and lower THC content, giving them a not so high feeling but relief from certain symptoms. Cannabis breeders have been able to breed cannabis strains with almost no THC but high amounts of CBD, making them awesome for medical uses.
2. Since CBD is non-psychoactive, it doesn't get the user stoned. This makes the CBD strains much less desired among the recreational users but highly sought after in the medical field. Since cannabis has virtually no negative side effects, it makes for a very desirable treatment.
3. With a wide range of medical benefits, the effects of CBD really can't be brushed off. This was proven by a study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology that showed that CBD contained the following medical uses; it combats nausea and vomiting as well as seizures. In addition, CBD is anti inflammatory and combats psychosis disorders. The study goes on to state that CBD fights neuro-degenerative disorders and cancer cells/tumors, plus it fights anxiety.
4. Most stoners know that the negative side effects of THC seem to be paranoia and a slight impairment of memory. CBD actually negates these effects and reduces them. There are multiple studies that show CBD counteracting these negative effects from THC. Both substances have also both been shown that they contain no risk of overdose, lethal or not.
5. Even with all of this positive information regarding CBD, it is still considered an illegal substance and a Schedule I drug in the United States and a Schedule II in Canada. However, due to the overwhelming amount of information regarding CBD, the FDA recently approved a pharmaceutical version of CBD to begin trials in pediatric epilepsy.
