Modern Uses Of The Hemp Plant

Hemp and cannabis are not the same thing. While they are similar, they do not share the characteristic that all potheads are after -- getting high. Hemp doesn't get the user high and will instead, give you a massive headache if you try to smoke it. While some people pay little to no attention to the hemp side of the family, it is probably the most beneficial part of the plant to our economy. Not only would it spare the trees but it would improve the overall health of the earth where ever it was planted. In addition, hemp can provide many different industrial necessities that we currently make with more harmful products.
 
Hemp needs far less space to grow than trees. It grows faster, without pesticides, and doesn't really need the help of humans. It is a weed and it really acts as such, flourishing wherever there is soil to grow. The plant grows fast, sprouting up in months as compared to years it takes to grow trees. The roots grow very deep, aerating the soil and allowing future crops to flourish in the nutrient rich dirt left by the hemp plants. Since the roots of the hemp plant are so brutal, they also choke the life out of smaller weeds trying to overtake the garden.
 
The stalks of the plant are incredibly important to industrial business. The strong fibers provide an amazing material that can be used to make clothing, paper, diapers, denim, and other fabrics as well as paper products ranging all the way from printer paper to billboards and banners. And that's just the beginning. The stalk can also be made in to things like rope, nets, canvas, tarps, brake and clutch lining in vehicles, and carpets. And it's not just the stalk that people can use to their benefit. Looking for a dogbed? You can get one made from the leaves of the hemp plant. Working on a project at home? Maybe building a gazebo or pool? Hemp can be made in to concrete, insulation, and mortar/stucco, giving it even more versatility in our crazy world.
 
The list goes on to include the fact that hempseed is incredibly beneficial to human health, creating a better working system without our bodies. Hempseed oil could replace things like butter, food supplements, and cooking oil. Creams made from hempseed are said to help assist with aging, facial lines, and skin condition likes rashes and eczema. The benefits of this plant are endless and since it has been illegal for so long, we honestly don't even know about the full potential that hemp has to offer. With more research, hemp may end up taking over our entire industrialized society, creating a more fine-tuned (and functional) machine.

Colorado Highway Fatalities At Near-Historic Lows After Legalization

Category: News | Posted on Fri, August, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
highway-fatalities-at-low-in-coRemember when marijuana legalization opponents made claims before Colorado and Washington legalized that there would be an epidemic of stoned drivers on the roads after legalization? And remember when they made it sound like there would be all kinds of carnage on public roadways as a result? Even after legalization in Colorado and Washington, opponents continued to make those claims, and they are currently making those claims in Oregon and Alaska where voters will see marijuana legalization initiatives on the ballot in November.
 
I’m curious if these same opponents know that fatalities on Colorado highways are at near-historic lows after legalization? That’s right, not only is there not an epidemic of stoned driver related issues on Colorado highways, but fatalities have actually gone down. This is no doubt an inconvenient fact that opponents will have a hard time spinning in their favor. Per the Washington Post:
 
As you can see, roadway fatalities this year are down from last year, and down from the 13-year average. Of the seven months so far this year, five months saw a lower fatality figure this year than last, two months saw a slightly higher figure this year, and in one month the two figures were equal.
 
There have been studies that have shown that traffic fatalities have also dropped in states that have legalized medical marijuana. There are multiple studies out there that show that marijuana consumers are very defensive drivers, and that they ‘stoned driver epidemic’ is nothing more than reefer madness propaganda. I’d imagine opponents will continue to use their scare tactics during the 2014 Election and beyond, but I’m hopeful that people will do their own research and realize that claims by opponents are unfounded.

Super Dank Sugar Recipe

Category: Recipes | Posted on Fri, August, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
cannabs-sugar-recipe
Medicating in a sneaky fashion can sometimes be a huge pain. People pay far too much attention to what others are doing. And what if you're stuck in a family setting where they don't care for the use of cannabis? Thankfully, I stumbled across this recipe for cannabis infused sugar, something that every stoner will enjoy. Put it in tea or coffee to get a boost in the morning or sprinkle it on some fruit in a sneaky way to taste something delicious and medicate at the same time. Whatever you chose to use the sugar on, you can bet that it'll get you nice and stoned!
 
What You'll Need:
Granulated Sugar
Alcohol Based Marijuana Tincture
Measuring Cups & Spoons
Mixing Bowl
Baking Sheet
 
Take one cup of the granulated sugar and put it in to a mixing bowl. Add in 1 tbsp of the tincture and mix everything together well. The mix will be grainy but don't worry, this is how it's supposed to look. Take the mix and spread it in a fine sheet on a baking sheet pan. Place it in the oven at 200 degrees for half an hour. This is to ensure that the alcohol has been completely evaporated from the sugar.
 
Remove the sugar from the oven and allow the entire thing to cool off completely before continuing. The sugar will be clumpy on the baking sheet but again, this happens and is normal. Don't worry, you didn't mess it up. Put the clumped sugar in a sieve and press it through with a metal spoon. Doing this will break up the sugar, creating the formerly smoothish consistency of sugar. Be sure to hav an airtight container under the sieve while doing this. Once all of the sugar is pushed through the sieve, seal the far and store it. Hell yeah, medicated sugar.
