Who Is Chris Christie And Why Marijuana Lovers Need To Know

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, June, 25th 2014 by THCFinder
who-is-christie
You may know him as the man who had no answer for the father asking him to please not let his daughter die (referring to the Wilson viral video that showed how ignorant and disrespectful Christie is when confronted with the idea of giving cannabis to children suffering from epilepsy). Or as the man who bantered on and on about "gateway drugs" when asked about the plant on a radio show. Or possibly, you just know him as the governor of New Jersey. This man is trying to take on the anti-marijuana movement singlehandedly against the grain of the thousands of supporters that the plant gains every single day. So if people support weed so much and Christie is just rude politician, what's the issue?
 
The issue is that Christie may end up running for president of the US. And that's pretty bad for the people in America who are pro-pot. The state of New Jersey currently allows medical marijuana to be sold and bought by patients with a doctor's recommendation. Christie, however, only allowed one dispensary to open in the state and that one shop doesn't sell the concentrates that some patients (like Vivian Wilson, the little girl suffering from epilepsy in that viral video) need in order to feel better. Even after confronted during a press conference by the girl's father, Christie barely let an edible rule pass, saying that the single medical shop could sell edibles. Unfortunately, a low demand for high CBD edibles causes the shop to not carry the medicine. So basically, not much help to the child in need.
 
Christie doesn't seem to have accepted the facts. Every single poll released recently has shown increasing support in favor of telling the Feds to butt out of state cannabis business. Colorado and Washington are raking in the big bucks due to the legal marijuana sales and even though states don't want to seem eager, you know all the politicians are hungering for the $15+ million a week in revenue from bud sales. Christie doesn't see the money as a good thing. In the radio interview, a listener explained the incredible financial benefits of legalization and Christie couldn't even let the listener finish. Cutting her off with "Let me stop you right there. You know when it may come down the road? When I'm gone. Because it won't happen while I'm here." He then proceeds to quote a study that basically says marijuana consumers aren't as smart as those that don't use marijuana... Going all the way back to "stoners are stupid". His ending argument, of course, was to say that marijuana is a gateway drug and it should not be allowed.
 
He may sound silly and very, very wrong. But if this man happens to worm his way in to the Oval Office, the cannabis movement is in trouble. Even the progress of Colorado and Washington could be halted by such an abrasive, uninformed person. Stoners need to know about opponents like this so we know what we're up against... Although with Christie, I'm unsure as to how valid and solid his arguments actually are. Considering the gateway drug theory has been disproven time and time again, we will hopefully be safe from cannabis predators like this.

Multi-Tasking; More Dangerous Than Marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, June, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
multi-tasking-more-dangerous-than-mariuana
Our world is extremely fast paced. Communication, obtaining information, visiting other places. All of this can be done with the touch of a screen, the click of a button. With people expecting everything so fast, humans can't help but multitask in the worst way. Even as I sit here writing this, I've got Adventure Time playing, and I'm currently checking Instagram. The fact that I'm doing this is actually worse for my brain then the bong that I'm about to hit... Crazy right?
 
Scientists at the Institute of Psychiatry at the University of London conducted a study on 1,100 company workers in Britain. When the workers did their tasks while listening to electronic media, there was a greater decrease in IQ then compared to those who smoke weed or those who skip a night's sleep. I'm not joking. Your phone is actually more dangerous than your weed, a fact that is greatly over looked by today's insanely instant society. Our brains are focusing on too many things at once, causing somewhat of an overload. This makes us less efficient and far less productive, showing that multitasking is extremely bad for us as humans and it's probably a good plan to learn to slow things down and do one task at a  time.
 
Additional studies that contributed to this research include one done by the Energy Product Audit. At least 69% of workers have extreme trouble focusing on the task at hand and are very easily distracted by simply checking email. The study went on to say that 28% of the average work weed is spent doing just that... Checking email. That means that up to 14 hours a week, workers are sitting at their computers, hitting the refresh button on their email... Or their Instagram!
 
The next time someone tells you that smoking weed will make you stupid, you'll know the real issue and you can kindly explain that by listening to music while working on a computer is actually more detrimental to the function of that mushy mass in our skulls. Our brains are extremely complex but it makes sense that focusing on multiple things at once could possibly cause damage. Much like the REM cycle of sleep that repeats every 90 minutes while you're asleep at night, our bodies experience similar changes during the day. If you work in smaller amounts, while not focusing on anything else (turn off your phone, music, TV, and all other distractions and just focus on the current task), say twenty minute increments, and then took short breaks in between, your brain would operate more efficiently, therefore making you more productive.

Does CO2 Increase Marijuana Plant Yields?

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, June, 24th 2014 by THCFinder

In the process of chlorophyll photosynthesis CO2 is an essential component. In nature air contains 300 or 400 parts CO2 per million parts and is constantly supplied (by the wind). The marijuana plants take the CO2 out of the air very quick. If the amount of CO2 is reduced by a third, there will not be any photosynthesis so also no growth.

The exhaust system makes sure CO2 comes in with fresh air and gets rid of the warm air with too little CO2 in it. Because CO2 is heavier then O2, most of it is close to the ground. make sure that the fans mix the air so the CO2 can reach the marijuana plants. If you do not add extra CO2 to a closed grow environment it is necessary to continuously let the exhaust and ventilation system work while the lights are on. This will provide good conditions for photosynthesis and thus for development.

Limiting factors:

CO2, temperature, water and fertilizers could all be limiting factors. Not enough of one of the elements could slow the whole development of the marijuana plants down. With a higher level of CO2 in the air, the metabolism of the plant goes faster. If it rises to 1500 ppm, it will have to go with a temperature of 25- 30 degrees Celsius. Also the minimum humidity goes up from 40 to 60% and even the amount of fertilizers changes. If this is all done correctly though, the harvest can be 15 to 25% bigger in the same time (or less!).

If you want a strong marijuana plant with flowers close together and a short growth it is wise to artificially add CO2. This technique is very difficult so only experienced growers should try it.  Download my free marijuana grow bible for more tips about growing marijuana plants.

When to use artificial supplements of CO2:

When you have a heat problem and the exhaust system doesn’t work properly you could try using artificial CO2. Everything accelerates when you do this, so if it’s not strictly necessary. Don’t do this the first few times you grow marijuana. When you are more experienced it can increase productivity and gain time.

CO2: not easy to measure.

The devices you need to measure the CO2- level are very expensive, although there is a chemical measure process but you can only do this once with the equipment: a glass tube divided into degrees and a syringe. The tube is filled with a reactive substance for CO2. The syringe is filled with the air that you want to test. Break the tube at the two ends and attach it to the syringe. The air should flow through the tube and the reactive substance changes color: this indicates the CO2 level.

Purple Urkle - Indica

Purple Urkle comes from Mendo Purps pheno and is native to the notorious green triangle in northern California. It is characterized by unusually long orange hairs covering small, dense, purple nugs when properly grown and harvested. The color is a purple much like that found on quality strains of Lavender, although despite common misconception, the two are not related.
