Hemp Vs Cannabis; 5 Differences You Should Know

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, December, 9th 2014 by THCFinder


Cannabis and hemp are different plants, even though the belong to the same family. The plants look like, grow similar, and are beneficial to humans in so many different ways. But while cannabis has a potential to be an amazing medicinal asset to the human species, hemp proves to be something that could overtake the industrial world and eliminate many harmful substances that we currently use today. Unfortunately, there are still people that don’t get the difference between hemp and cannabis. The following five facts will give you some idea on why the plants are different and you can tell someone next time they tell you that “hemp and marijuana are the same damn thing”.


  • Genetics of the plants are different. Cananbis is believed to be one of the oldest domesticated crops around. In our history, it has ben grown from many different uses, from medical to industrial. The plants grew tall and strong and made in to a variety of oils, textiles, and foods. By breeding these plants with other plants, the end result was hemp. But with marijuana, the plants were recognized for being psychoactive and were bred for religious and medical purposes. This led to the highly potent, smokeable form of cannabis. According to Dan Sutton of Canadian Tantulus Labs, “The core agricultural differences between medical cannabis and hemp are largely in their genetic parentage and cultivation environment”. 
  • Cannabis plants contain cannabinoids, which research has shown that over 60 cannabinoids exist in the plant. THC is the most well known, followed closely by the ever growing in popularity, CBD. Marijuana contains high levels of this substance, while hemp does not. Countries such as Canada that allow the production of hemp classify the plant as any cannabis plant having less than 0.3% THC. Any plant with higher THC levels is considered cannabis. However, if you’re looking at CBD, hemp contains more of this compound. Not only that but CBD reportedly negates the effects of THC, differentiating the plants even more.
  • Since marijuana and hemp are grown for two separate purposes, the way that they are grown differs as well. “Medical cannabis has been selectively bred over generations and its characteristics are optimized in its cultivation environment to produce female flowering plants that yield budding flowers at the flowering stages of their life cycle,” says Sutton. Hemp plants are also primarily male, without ever getting the heavily resonated buds that the marijuana plant gets. When growing marijuana for THC purposes, the grow environment must be kept at optimal conditions. Everything including light, humidity, CO2, oxygen, and temperature must be monitored carefully in order for the plants to produce the highest amount of THC possible. Hemp does not need these conditions and can grow quickly and healthy without such supervision.
  • Even though the US Government schedules both hemp and marijuana as Schedule 1 substances, it is legal in the US to import hemp products from China, Chile, and the European Union. According to the Hemp Industry Association, there are about $500 million worth of hemp products imported in to the state every year. Marijuana is still not legally grown in most places and is subject to much stricter rules.
  • Laws restrict the study of cannabis, limiting the research that could benefit the entire human race. But even though the laws are tough, people are still researching. Developments in hemp technology are looking at developing types of renewable plastic that will be a great replacement for the plastic used in car parts. Researchers at the University of Alberta even created a supercapactior using raw hemp material, which would lead to the making of cheap, fast charging batteries made from hemp.

Nothern Lights - Indica

Northern Lights is renowned for its ability to be grown very easily. The strain's reputation also comes from the fact that it has won competitions such as the Cannabis Cup. The #5 strain was first entered into competition 1989 when several seeds were mailed from the U.S.A. to Amsterdam. The strain quickly dominated the Cannabis Cup, winning in 1989, 1998, and again in 2009. It is a cross of Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa.


Burger King Releases Stoner Menu

burger-king-releases-stoner-menuWhile fast food hasn’t had much positive publicity lately, we all have to admit to eating it at one point or another. It’s just really difficult to deny a cheeseburger, you know? Most of us have seen the commercials from Jack In The Box (their food is nasty though) and Taco Bell, with late night menus that mention “munchies” but there hasn’t been a fast food chain releasing a menu specifically designed to target stoners… Until now.
Burger King announced at the beginning of November that they would be hosting a new late night menu that is specifically geared towards the pot smokers of the world. While the move is clearly profit driven, as most of these moves by big corporations are, there’s a little bit more logic too it. “We decided not to beat around the bush. If you’re out buying fast food after 1 am, you’re either drunk or stoned. With that in mind, we are unveiling our new late night menu that we are simply dubbing “Stoned Selection,” said Bill Baron, CEO of BK. “Let’s face it, we are not the first to do this. We’re just the first to be open about why we’re doing it. Taco Bell’s entire menu is aimed at pot smokers and Papa John’s new Sriracha hot sauce and Fritos Pizza screams “I’ve got the weed munchies”.”
This new menu will only include two items on it, as research done shows that any more than two items will bring the average 17 year old stoned kid to a stand still about what they want. And that definitely has some truth to it, as pulling up to a drive through when you’re baked is probably one of the most difficult things you could possibly do. The items on the menu will be something like Hot Pockets, Bagel Bites, or Ho-Hos and the drink choice? Mountain Dew, of course.
“In the test markets of Colorado and New York, our ‘Stoned Selection’ menu has been a huge success and we plan to go nationwide by the end of the year,” marketing Director Greg Hause said of the move. The menu will definitely make ordering things easier, as the two items will help. But hopefully, they put some serious stoner munchies on there, otherwise we’ll have to keep making weird stuff out of what we have in the kitchen.

How To PROPERLY Clean Your Dab Rig

Category: Glass | Posted on Mon, December, 8th 2014 by THCFinder
how-to-clean-you-dab-rigWelcome back, Spaceship Earthlings.  Now that we all have dab rigs (if you don’t, make sure you check out the article by Aaar Kellz that details how to get one on the cheap), it won’t be long until they start to become clogged with reburn.  If you chose to ignore our advice about getting a simple rig, rather than a complicated one, they are probably already getting there.  I know this because I stubbornly refused to give up my shower-head perc for a long time.  So, no hard feelings.  In fact, kudos to you, because right now we are going to tackle how to properly clean your rig.
Alright, so I am aware that there are already many established cleaning products already out there that you may or may not already use successfully.  If you are brand loyal, feel free to stay so, as for strictly cleaning purposes, these products work just fine.  The problem that I have with them is that they typically contain dyes to make them a more attractive color, and artificial fragrance to mask the fact that they are mostly isopropyl alcohol.  That said, I would suggest using the tried and true method of isopropyl alcohol.  It’s a fraction of the cost of any officially designated cleaner.
Combine one part isopropyl with one part pipe cleaners, and one part elbow grease, and you have a recipe for a clean rig.  You can add salt as an abrasive if it pleases you;  I typically use rock salt, but only in my flower rig.  If you are lazy like I am, and have the time, you can just pour the isopropyl into your rig and let it sit for a few
hours, making sure to give it a swirl every one in a while.  Once the liquid in the chamber is a nice, dark, coffee color, go ahead and pour it out.  I recommend into a flushing toilet or the garbage, as this it will resinate anything it touches.  Repeat this step as necessary. Now I know that this doesn’t really need to be said, but I’m going to
say it anyway.  Isopropyl alcohol is EXTREMELY flammable, and appropriate cautions should always be taken.
As mentioned previously, this first method I reserve for strictly cleaning an oil rig.  However, if you are interested in collecting your reburn, or reclaim, it is only step two in a larger process. Now, before we get any further, I understand you may be asking, “Why would I want to collect reburn?”   Well, the most obvious answer is that, in a pinch, you would have a reserve of reclaim from which you could take a dab when you otherwise couldn’t.  Since oil is vaporized, rather than combusted the way flower is, reclaim tastes much better, and shouldn’t at all be thought of in the same way we think of it’s smellier cousin, resin.  In fact, the clinch hit is the least of its uses.  It can be used to properly season a new nail.  Also, I’ve heard of people rolling blunts with everything from maple syrup to honey, even jelly.  Trust me, the best thing to smear on a paper prior to rolling, be it blunt or joint, is reburn.  I call these uplifting treats afterburners.  You heard it here first.  Those are just a few of many uses, which we will detail in the future.
When it comes to collecting the reclaim, you can save a little time and energy by purchasing some sort of reclaim collecting attachment for your rig.  These usually come in the form of a an extension that attaches between the downstem and the nail.  I’ve seen the run the gambit from a simple “Z” shape to elaborate contraptions one might expect to find in a Dr Suess book.  Regardless of whether or not you choose to pick up a collector, or how efficient the collector you end up with may be, you will find that the reclaim starts to collect on the various surfaces in the various chambers of your rig, including the surface of the water.  Again, the more surfaces you have given the reclaim to collect on in the choosing of your rig, the more will collect inside, and the more time you will devote to the ritual of cleaning.
When you actually reach a point when you are ready to clean and collect, and I know for some of you this will be when it is no longer possible to take a hit, you are going to need a few simple household items.  They are: a decent sized bowl, a metal or silicone-coated spoon, a suitable container, preferably silicone, and hot water.  The water doesn’t need to be boiling, but it needs to be hotter that you can typically get from your tap.  Remove the nail and the dome if you have one.  The collectors can be scooped, put through the process that follows, or if you’re really careful, you can apply a little heat from your torch and just pour it into your container.  Applying the torch unnecessarily has personally cost me both a oil rig and an ash tray at this point, so when I say be careful, I mean ninja careful.
