Cream of Cannabis Soup Recipe
Category: Recipes | Posted on Wed, November, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
Chilly nights call for some delicious soup, am I right? Or maybe you’re having a dinner party and just need a “before the meal” snack. Whatever the case may be, this cream of cannabis soup will warm you up in more ways than one. Both physically and mentally! This is also a great recipe for those who aren’t so fortunate and get sick at this time of year. The common cold wrecks havoc on people’s work lives so this might help you to be a little more lively and not miss one of those busy weekend shifts at work (or a day at work, if you do the normal 9 to 5). The following recipe makes 6 cups of cream of cannabis soup and keep in mind that if you’re not sharing, you can always save the extra for later!
What You’ll Need;
2 tbsp butter (1 tbsp of canna butter, 1 of regular butter)
2 medium potatoes (peeled and diced)
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups ready to serve chicken broth
2 large leeks
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 pound asparagus
Grab the leeks first and trim the roots and leaves off of them, leaving only the white part and about 2 inches of the green. Rinse the leeks well with cold water and the split them lengthwise and slice crosswise (about 1/2 an inch thick). Sauté the leeks in the canna butter/butter for about ten minutes on low heat or until they’re soft. Stir in the potatoes, salt & pepper, and the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil. While this mixture cooks, trim the asparagus tips off and set them aside for your garnish (if you choose to use a garnish, this isn’t necessary). Discard the woody ends of the asparagus and chop the remaining pieces up and add them to the boiling soup. Reduce the heat of the burner and simmer, uncovered, for about ten minutes or until all the vegetables are tender. Then move the soup to the work bowl of a food processor or a blender if you don’t have a processor and blend them until they are all pureed. Put the soup in to a clean sauce pan and stir in the cream. Mix thoroughly.
If you choose to have the asparagus tips as a garnish, put the tips in salted boiling water in a small sauce pan. Cook these for about four minutes or until they are tender. Drain them well and garnish each serving with the tips. Your soup is done and enjoy!

Alaska Legalizes Recreational Marijuana
Category: Legalization | Posted on Wed, November, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
It took longer to count the votes compared to Oregon and Washington D.C., but the result was the same – Alaska voters legalized marijuana. The victory was declared in the early morning hours today, capping off a stellar Election Day for marijuana reform. Even in Florida, where a medical marijuana initiative failed, there was still an overwhelming majority result in favor of the initiative (just not enough to pass the required 60% hurdle). Anyone who said that pursuing marijuana reform in 2014 because it would hurt 2016’s chances should be very happy today to be wrong. 2016 has never looked better due to the momentum that was built from the victories in D.C., Oregon, and Alaska. Below is a reaction from Tom Angell, the head of Marijuana Majority:
“Now that it’s been shown that putting marijuana legalization on the ballot can succeed even in midterms, we can expect to see a huge surge of additional states voting to end prohibition during the 2016 presidential election. And because the issue has been proven to be mainstream as far as voters are concerned, we may even see lawmakers in several states jumping ahead to legalize marijuana legislatively in the meantime.”
And from my friends at Law Enforcement Against Prohibition:
Alaska’s Measure 2, an initiative to allow adults 21 and over to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and up to six plants, passed tonight in a close race. This measure will establish, license and regulate retail stores, cultivation facilities, product manufacturers and testing facilities so consumers will always know that what they’re getting is safe, will allow police to focus on violent crime and will ensure that profits benefit the government, not drug cartels. Driving under the influence and public consumption will remain illegal and employers may restrict their employees’ use and localities can ban marijuana establishments though not private possession or cultivation.
The other measure to legalize, regulate and control marijuana on the ballot tonight, Measure 91 in Oregon, passed easily earlier tonight. This makes Oregon and Alaska the third and fourth states to legalize marijuana, after Colorado and Washington and caps off a wonderful night for drug policy reformists that included DC legalizing possession of marijuana and California defelonizing low-level nonviolent drug possession.
“This is a historic day for public safety and for civil rights,” said Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper (Ret.). “Clearly, the people demand change, and their leaders would be wise to follow.”
Law Enforcement Against Prohibition is a 501(c)3 nonprofit of cops, prosecutors, judges and other law enforcement officials who want to end the war on drugs.
What a great day to be an Alaskan, and an American in general. Four legal states, and a District of Columbia as the cherry on top. Has anyone seen Kevin Sabet? How’s he feeling today? Someone bring that man a kleenex!

Caring For Cannabis Clones
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, November, 5th 2014 by THCFinder
For some new growers, cloning can be stressful. The idea of cutting your beautiful cannabis plant might hurt a little bit but hey, what better way to shave off a few weeks of grow time, plus have a gorgeous imitation of your mother plant? We’ve covered the part on how to clone your plants but what about caring for them once they’re in their starter cubes? Since these little babies have zero roots, the care of the clones is extremely important in how they root and begin their journey to being a flowering monster that will yield you a great amount of cannabis.
The first thing that you need to know is that clones love warm and wet conditions, much like springtime if you have that in your state (some states have the same season all year round… Hot). Because of this desired climate, having a humidity dome for your clones is a good idea but not necessary. For those just starting out, the dome is highly recommended. If you don’t have the dome, you can just mist your new plants lightly in order to make sure that they get the water they need. You can also put a heating pad under the clones to keep them nice and toasty (not too toasty… You don’t want them to go up in flames or anything). Keeping the clones a bit hotter than room temp (around 75 degrees F) is ideal. If you buy an automatic cloner, you can find some with an automatic heat setting.
Some growers don’t introduce their clones to light for the first day or two of cutting. It’s a good idea to keep them in a well lit area for the first two days and then introduce a weak bulb, such as a CFL. Once the light is introduced, keep the clones on a 16/8 schedule (16 light and 8 dark). Keep a close eye on the new clones until they’ve become well established, making sure to mist them as they have no roots and need to absorb water from their leaves.
The first ten days of the cloning process should be gentle light use. HID lights are too strong for younger, weaker clones. But if that’s all you have, keep the lights high above the clones, at least 4 feet so that the little ones don’t get scorched instead of tough. Once you see the roots poking out of the cube, you can begin to get stronger lights. But it’s still important to keep the clones further from the light than normal, as they’re still weak and won’t be able fend off the heat from the lights. When the roots begin to poke out of the side of the cubes, you’ll know that they’re ready to transplant and that the light can be moved closer. At this point, your clones will be a bit healthier and once they really begin to grow with vigor, you can treat them like normal, healthy plants.

Strong in sativa qualities for a purple strain, Purple Dragon has an almost buzzy and energetic effect throughout the body and behind the eyes. After a while the strain settles into a nice, pain-relieving groove.
