Watering Tips And Techniques For Outdoor Marijuana Growers

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, May, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
watering-tips-for-outdoor-mjWatering needs depend on your growing site’s location and the genetics of your crop. If you have a fairly humble-sized crop, then various hand-watering methods should suffice. Some marijuana growers haul water out to their site and then use watering pots or run hoses from a large container to their site. If you have been able to find a site that is fairly close to water, and you have a small number of plants, it may make the most sense to refill from the source and carry the water back and forth. This limits your liability since you’ll never be questioned as to why you are bringing 100 gallons of water into the woods.
 
If you have a lot marijuana plants you may have to consider more elaborate methods, such as using battery- or gas-powered pumps. These have drawbacks in that they are usually very loud and the sound of a motor can carry for milks: not ideal for stealth operations. These systems require a source of power and constant water supply and sometimes need to be set up in an intricate way involving many subsections like tubing and platforms. Once in place, they have the ability to deliver tremendous volumes of water, according to the exact schedule that you need.
 
Another method is to fashion a slow-drip irrigation system. Using a one-gallon milk jug, poke a couple of pinholes into the bottom, which allows a steady, but small amount of water to be released. The advantage to this is that you only need refill the jugs, which, once in place, will water your plants on a consistent basis. The marijuana plant never suffers from too much watering as can happen if you travel to your site only occasionally. If your plants aren’t getting enough water, then either add more jugs to water specific plants, or make the holes larger if the problem is the water retention abilities of the soil. Of course if you’re just growing a few marijuana plants, and they are on your property, using an ordinary garden hose works great.

One very cheap and readily available source of water is of course, rainwater. Clean rainwater is a good source for your plants because tap water can contain unwanted chemicals. A lot of water systems use chemicals to clean the water to make it potable, or drinkable. They can also add additional chemicals to neutralize the taste, so that you don’t taste the chemicals, just the water. Tap water PH may also be above or below 7. While this is great for humans and our finicky taste buds, it can be detrimental to the plants. One thing to watch out for is the amount of sodium (NaCl or salt) in the water. If you water your plants with overly salty water, their eventual size could be reduced by as much as 50%. Tap water can also contain chlorides, sulfates, and other solids, which helps to explain why the sales of water filtration systems are so brisk. It is also why using distilled water is recommended for young seedlings, before they are transplanted.
 
If you are concerned about the quality of water you are delivering to your plants (or drinking!) there are test kits available for sale at gardening and hardware stores. They will help you deter- mine water quality and let you know which chemicals are prevalent in the largest amounts.
 
If you don’t want to deal with this at all, then rainwater is an easy solution. The best way to catch rainwater is to place a large container under a drain spout during the rainiest months of the year. Usually this will happen in the spring so forethought is once again crucial to success. If the area being drained is generally clear of water-soluble chemicals, the rainwater should be perfect for the plants; Then your only problem is storing the water and transporting it to the site.

Texas Man Faces Possible Life in Prison For Pot Brownies

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
life-in-jail-for-pot-brownies
A 19-year-old Texas man could be facing the possibility of life in prison for allegedly baking and selling pot brownies.
 
According to police in Round Rock, a city north of Austin, officers found 1.5 pounds of brownies, along with a pound of marijuana, digital scales, $1,675 in cash and several bags of marijuana at Jacob Lavoro's apartment last month.
 
Now, Lavoro faces a first-degree felony and if convicted, the former high school football player with a clean record faces a possible punishment ranging from five years to life behind bars.
 
His father Joe Lavoro called the potential punishment “outrageous.”
 
“Five years to life? I’m sorry, I’m a law-abiding citizen, I’m a conservative, but I’ll be damned,” Joe Lavoro said. “This is wrong. This is damn wrong.”
 
Prosecutors say the charge is so severe because of Lavoro’s brownie recipe. Authorities say he mixed in hash oil, which features a far higher concentration of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana. Under Texas law, the hash oil can be treated similarly to far more serious narcotics such as ecstasy.
 
Because the drops of oil were cooked into the brownies, police weighed the entire brownie batch – sugar, flour and butter – and charged him with possessing 1.5 pounds of drugs.
 
Jack Holmes, Lavoro’s defense attorney, believes the charge should be downgraded.
 
“They’ve weighed baked goods in this case,” Holmes said. “It ought to be a misdemeanor.”
 
Lavoro has pleaded not guilty. His father remains upset that prosecutors aren’t backing down.
 
“If he did something wrong, he should be punished, but to the extent that makes sense,” he said. “This is illogical.”
 
Lavoro is due back in court next month.

Grape Ape - Indica

Wide purple leaves cover the Grape Ape marijuana plant, surrounding some of the world's most unique buds. The leaves, stems, stalks and buds are coated with a thick layer of THC crystals and these lovely ladies give off a strong smell of grape. You'll also notice some very nice undertones of skunkiness. The nuggets, when cared for properly, are tight and dense. They are super sticky and make you feel guilty for placing your fat little fingers on them directly.

Minnesota to become 22nd state to legalize medical marijuana

Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, May, 21st 2014 by THCFinder
minnesota-22nd-state-to-legalize-medical-marijuanaIt took years, many false starts and a veto, but Minnesota medical marijuana advocates finally succeeded in getting a bill that’s on track to become law in a matter of days.
 
A broad bipartisan majority of state lawmakers in the Minnesota House of Representatives approved legislation to provide access to medical cannabis to improve the quality of life of Minnesotans with serious medical conditions on Friday. The bill passed by a vote of 89-40.
The Senate passed the same bill earlier Friday by a vote of 46-16. It now heads to Governor Mark Dayton, who says he will sign it into law.
 
The compromise bill, announced Thursday by the Dayton administration, state lawmakers and advocates, addresses the medical community’s desire for medical oversight and for gathering quality information about patients’ health impacts while accommodating the safety and security concerns of the law enforcement community.
 
“This year, Minnesota took an important step toward improving the quality of life of people with serious and terminal medical conditions like cancer, HIV/AIDS and seizure disorders,” said Rep. David Bly (DFL-Northfield). “We forged a strong bipartisan compromise that provides relief to suffering children and adults while addressing concerns of law enforcement and the medical community.”
 
Bly believes the bill is a first step and can be improved upon in coming years after there is an opportunity to closely examine the research and outcomes − research, he says, that will help us better understand how and why medical cannabis can benefit patients.
Rice County Sheriff Troy Dunn said that although he was pleased that a compromise was finally reached, he was concerned that there would be too many distributors and about the potential for regulation difficulty.
 
“I like that they’re going to regulate the distributors. I’m also happy that they’re using the liquid extracts and taking the THC out and other things that have side effects,” Dunn said. “I just don’t want us to move too fast and have multiple distributors like Colorado did. I like Minnesota’s way of going about it cautiously. Also, I think it will be difficult to regulate people with a legal prescription who drive under the influence.”
