How To Cure Herb
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, December, 16th 2013 by THCFinder
Curing cannabis is a key part of the growing process. Without a proper cure, mold and bugs can overtake the flowers, or worse, yield a harsh tasting bud that no one wants to smoke. If you don't cure the harvest, you run the risk of ruining the whole thing. The following steps are a good way to cure your bud and give you a good quality end product that everyone will enjoy.
A good cure is started at the point in which 50 to 80% of the pistels have turned colors. This is when you need to clean the plant out of the nutes and other products that you have used to nurture your plants in order for them to get to this point. If you don't do this, the end buds will be hard to light and harsh to smoke, both of which are things that you don't want happening to your harvest. Once you realize that the plants are close to their harvest point, begin to give them only regular water. Since the plants store a lot of the nutes from products, they will continue to grow at the same rate on the plain water diet. Hydro growers should change their solutions to plain water a week before they harvest and soil growers should start two weeks before.
Now that your buds are clean of nutes and ready to be harvested, the next step is to properly dry them. This is where keeping an eye on your harvest becomes incredibly important. Mold can ruin virtually all of your cannabis that you've worked so hard to grow. In order to prevent the mold, the buds should be dried slowly. Don't use a hairdryer or a microwave, as you're just going to ruin the weed. You must keep control of the humidity in the curing area, much like a humidor for cigars. Too much humidity breeds mold, while too little will take a far longer time to cure. The normal time for buds to cure is up to 8 weeks but can last longer.
If you don't cure the buds, you run the risk of ruining the whole crop. The best idea is to just cure the bud. Rushing never got anyone anywhere and in this case can cost you a lot of money. If you want a good crop of bud, curing is a key step. Don't make the mistake of trying to half ass this step either. A herb connoisseur will always be able to tell.
Cannabis Energy Drinks

In a fast paced world where everyone is always in a hurry, energy drinks are a billion dollar industry. Red Bull makes so much money that they managed to help a guy free fall from the edge of space to earth. That's got to cost a pretty penny! But let's face it, energy drinks are good if you can manage to drink them in moderation. By getting a small pick-me-up like an energy drink, some people can get through their days a lot easier. But a cannabis energy drink seems to be a slight oxymoron, considering most stoners prefer the much less potent coffee or even tea. So what's the deal with cannabis energy drinks?
First off, they do contain hemp seed extract. However, since it's not a psychoactive substance and there is a small enough amount that the drink is legal. It is true that the DEA put an embargo on all food based on hemp as well as oils. But that decision was reversed in 2004. If a product contains hempseed extract, must have a THC count of 10 parts per billion or less. Since the cannabis energy drink contains less, the drink is legal (although not sold) in all states. The hempseed extract, although minute in the amount, does provide health benefits for the body and can make one feel replenished, awake, and focused.
Energy drinks do contain caffeine so it's important to be careful not to drink too many of them if you're trying to avoid getting sick. While cannabis won't cause an overdose, caffeine sure can. But when consumed in moderation, an energy drink containing natural ingredients (the cannabis energy drink is lactose free, dairy free, gluten free, and safe for vegetarians as well. This makes the specific drink much healthier than it's competitors, which pack their drinks as full as they can with absurd ingredients that do who knows what to the insides of a human stomach.
Unfortunately, the drink won't get you stoned but is probably a better choice than drinking one of the other drinks on the market. While not giving users the effects that one would expect, you're getting more benefits from a cannabis energy drink than one of the other ones. It's something worth trying if you see it around and feel like trying something new! And if not, you can always stick to the good old weed tea instead!
Do you use performance enhancing drugs ; )

Overwhelming Majority Supports Taxing Marijuana In Indiana According To Poll
Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 15th 2013 by THCFinder
A majority of Indiana residents believe that marijuana should be legally regulated like alcohol and nearly 80 percent of Hoosiers support taxing it, according to recently released statewide polling data released by the Bowen Center for Public Affairs at Ball State University.
Fifty-two percent of respondents said that cannabis “should be regulated like alcohol.” Forty-five percent of respondents opposed legalization. Among self-identified Democrats, 64 percent of respondents backed regulation. Forty-nine percent of self-identified Republicans did so.
Hoosiers support for taxing cannabis was even stronger. Seventy-eight percent of respondents, including strong majorities of both major political parties, answered ‘yes’ to the question, “Should we tax marijuana like alcohol/cigarettes?” Only 19 percent of respondents opposed the idea.
Under present state law, first-time marijuana possession offenses of under 30 grams are punishable by up to one-year in jail and a $5,000 fine. Subsequent offenses are classified as felonies, punishable by up to 3 years incarceration.
Six hundred randomly selected Indiana residents participated in the survey, which has a margin of error of +/- 4.8 percent.
The Indiana poll is the latest to show growing support for marijuana law reform among so-called ‘Red State’ voters. Recent statewide surveys in Arizona, Louisiana, and Texas have similarly shown majority support for legalization.
