Cloning Cannabis

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, November, 4th 2014 by THCFinder

By cloning cannabis plants, you manage to cut out a few weeks of growing time from seeds. Baby seeds take a while to get to a healthy height and can suffer greatly if conditions are not right. While cannabis is a weed and grows easily, it’s still tough to get them up to par while they’re little. So by cloning, you can get some slightly bigger plants that are a little tougher and are able to survive better than their tiny siblings. Cloning seems like it would be extremely tough but it’s not, you just need a few things first.
 
 
What You’ll Need;
 
A mother plant
Cloning gel/powder
Pure water
Starter Cubes
Scissors or a razor (the sharper, the better)
Humidity dome (optional)
Heating mat (also optional)
 
You should clone your plant while it is in the vegetative state. Some experienced growers take the clones from the flowering giants that they have because the clones can grow in odd growth patterns, sprouting like crazy and producing large amounts of buds. While this may seem ideal, it is best to start off with a veg plant for your first couple of cloning sessions. Start the process by disinfecting your tools and getting everything ready. Be sure that all your materials are handy and ready to use. Don’t add any nutrients to the water and test the pH, which should be at 5.5. Take your starter cubes and soak them for a few minutes in the water. 
 
 
Find a spot on the mother plant where there is new branching and a new top and cut a bit below that. Simply grab the new growth and cut the branch at about a 45 degree angle. The new plant should be about 2-4 inches high. If possible, take the clones from the lower branches of the mother as they have more rooting hormones than the top. You want these new little ones to be able to root quickly so that they can absorb the nutrients from the soil. While this is ideal, you can clone from any part of the plant. If you so desire, you can lightly cut the end of the new clone, as some growers do, in order for more of the “insides” to be exposed.
 
 
Take your new clone and dip it in to the rooting gel that you have ready. This will seal off the air bubbles and give your clone what it needs to make it’s roots. Coat the entire bottom of the cut so that the entire piece is coated in the gel. Once the clone is coated, trim off any lower leaves or node points. You can also clip the tips of the top-most leaves so that the clone doesn’t have to work too hard producing light-to-food, when the focal point of her efforts should be the roots. Now, you can place the clone in the moistened starter cube and push the bottom to make sure that everything seals properly and no air can get in to the rooting area.
 
 
If you choose to use the humidity dome, this is the point where you can put the clone inside of it. You can create the right conditions for the clone without this dome but the dome really helps the clone do everything it needs to much faster. Clones root very well by themselves and if you’ve done everything in this article, almost 100% of your clones will take root and grow in to beautiful replicas of their mother.

Canna-Pot Pie Recipe

Category: Recipes | Posted on Mon, November, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder

There’s nothing that compares to a well made chicken pot pie. Except for maybe this recipe, which makes your traditional pie medicated. Enjoy a delicious combo of chicken, vegetables, and of course the crust (my favorite part) in this simple recipe. As always, you can choose to share or keep it all to yourself. Either way, this recipe is perfect for a chilly fall or winter night and will leave you full and medicated!
 
 
What You’ll Need;
 
1/2 cup sliced celery
 
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken
 
1/3 cup cannabutter
 
1 cup frozen green peas
 
1/3 cup all purpose flour
 
1/3 cup chopped onions
 
1/4 tsp black pepper
 
1/2 tsp salt
 
1 3/4 cup chicken broth
 
2 unbaked pie crusts
 
2/3 cup milk
 
1/4 tsp celery seed
 
 
Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees F. Grab a saucepan and combine the carrots, peas, chicken, and celery. Add in some water and let boil for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, drain away the water, and set the mix aside. In another saucepan, cook the onions in the canna butter until they’re soft and somewhat translucent. Add in the flour, salt, celery seed, and pepper. Then, slowly add in the chicken broth and the milk. Simmer the mixture over medium low heat or until it is thick. Once it reaches that point, remove from the heat and set aside.
 
 
Place the chicken mixture in the bottom pie crust and pour the hot liquid over it. Cover the mix with the top crust, seal the edges, and cut away the excess dough. Be sure that you cut several slits in the top to allow steam to escape so your pie doesn’t explode in the oven. Now, toss the pie (not actually toss, you get the idea) in the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the pastry is a golden brown color and the filling is bubbling. Let the pie cool for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Hemp Airplane In The Works

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, November, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
hemp-airplane-in-the-works
Hemp is great for many reasons. You can eat hemp, you can make fiber out of hemp, you can build a house out of hemp materials, and it appears that you can also make an airplane out of hemp. Per Whaxy:
 
A Florida based airplane manufacturing company, Velocity Inc., has contracted to fund $500,000 for the development of what is sure to revolutionize the aviation industry.
 
The Canada based company, Hempearth, founded by restaurateur Derek Kesek, has developed plans for the world’s first airplane made of hemp. Three quarters of the material used to construct this four-seater personal jet will be made from hemp material. It will even be powered completely by hemp bio-fuel, and it is expected to take to the air for a test flight early next year. With truly historical significance, Hempearth announced through Facebook that the plane’s maiden voyage will be launched from the world’s first ever aviation site within Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
 
Would you fly in a plane that is made from hemp material? From what the manufacturers are saying, the parts made from hemp have all been tested for strength and durability, and everything is very much up to code. In some of the testing, the hemp materials were actually stronger than fiber glass. I hope this airplane works out so we can see more of them made.
