Berry Haze - Hybrid

Blueberry x Sativa-dominant Haze strain Its genetics are believed to be an original Blueberry plant from DJ Shorts crossed with a Super Silver Haze plant originating in The Netherlands. This great hybrid brings together the sweetness and heavy-yielding traits of the Blueberry, invigorated by the uplifting Haze high. The effect is mainly Sativa, a smooth, uplifting high that turns in a more relaxing Indica. Its flavour mainly comes from the Blueberry though there are subtle tastes of Haze in her buds. Haze Berry is very popular with both medicinal and recreational users.

Could Legalization of Marijuana Be in Texas's Future?

Category: Legalization | Posted on Thu, May, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
texas-mj-legalization-could-be-coming-soonAs you drive up the long, gravel-lined drive of the small clapboard house in south Texas, not much seems unusual. An old hunting dog suns himself on the porch, and the modest decor of the peeling front porch — a weathered rocker and a swing — drips with small-town charm.
 
You'd never guess that it's quite modern inside, though. Just beyond the front door sit not only tidy living quarters, but a sophisticated cannabis grow house presided over by a war veteran whose hands curl like claws most mornings. His knees and back ache, making mobility difficult, especially when it rains. And here in this small town by the water, it rains often.
 
A cannabis advocate and medical user, Tim, who asked that we not use his real name, has been smoking cannabis daily for a number of years now, and after a while, growing his own marijuana by means of a hydroponic system seemed the logical way to go.
 
The contraption he built seems more the brainchild of a mad scientist-cum-expert gardener than of this older country man, but it is his nonetheless. He has crafted it all, from the vent system, powered by two minuscule computer fans, to the plant's light source, an advanced-technology LED lighting system.
 
In the ten or so years that Tim has been growing, he's become quite the indoor gardener. It's just too risky to grow marijuana outside, and with his apparatus, Tim can control the conditions, genetics and potency of the plant. The lights are set to the flowering and vegetative cycle, and with the careful acuity it takes to garden in here, he sometimes gets two crops from one plant.
 
What he can't control are the laws of Texas, the ones that say what he is doing is illegal. It's against the law to grow marijuana and equally illegal to use it for any purpose — even though cannabinoids, an active component of cannabis sativa, or marijuana, are widely regarded as a pain reliever for rheumatoid arthritis.
 
Perhaps not for much longer, though, for reasons as much practical as humanitarian.
 
With the reefer madness currently going on around the nation, a peculiar thing has happened. Texas has started discussing the unthinkable: legalizing marijuana.
 
Look back a couple of years, and a pro-pot stance in Texas was equal to political death. The only politicians brave enough to broach the subject — guys like Kinky Friedman — were going to be a tough sell to the general public anyway. Today, though, addressing your pot stance is an expected part of the platform.
 
If the results of recent polls are correct, it seems that Texas residents want what other states have: legalization. A poll conducted by The University of Texas and the Texas Tribune showed that 77 percent of registered voters in Texas believe in some form of legalization. Of that, 28 percent would agree only to medical legalization, while 49 percent are in favor of blanket legalization.

Watering Tips And Techniques For Outdoor Marijuana Growers

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, May, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
watering-tips-for-outdoor-mjWatering needs depend on your growing site’s location and the genetics of your crop. If you have a fairly humble-sized crop, then various hand-watering methods should suffice. Some marijuana growers haul water out to their site and then use watering pots or run hoses from a large container to their site. If you have been able to find a site that is fairly close to water, and you have a small number of plants, it may make the most sense to refill from the source and carry the water back and forth. This limits your liability since you’ll never be questioned as to why you are bringing 100 gallons of water into the woods.
 
If you have a lot marijuana plants you may have to consider more elaborate methods, such as using battery- or gas-powered pumps. These have drawbacks in that they are usually very loud and the sound of a motor can carry for milks: not ideal for stealth operations. These systems require a source of power and constant water supply and sometimes need to be set up in an intricate way involving many subsections like tubing and platforms. Once in place, they have the ability to deliver tremendous volumes of water, according to the exact schedule that you need.
 
Another method is to fashion a slow-drip irrigation system. Using a one-gallon milk jug, poke a couple of pinholes into the bottom, which allows a steady, but small amount of water to be released. The advantage to this is that you only need refill the jugs, which, once in place, will water your plants on a consistent basis. The marijuana plant never suffers from too much watering as can happen if you travel to your site only occasionally. If your plants aren’t getting enough water, then either add more jugs to water specific plants, or make the holes larger if the problem is the water retention abilities of the soil. Of course if you’re just growing a few marijuana plants, and they are on your property, using an ordinary garden hose works great.

One very cheap and readily available source of water is of course, rainwater. Clean rainwater is a good source for your plants because tap water can contain unwanted chemicals. A lot of water systems use chemicals to clean the water to make it potable, or drinkable. They can also add additional chemicals to neutralize the taste, so that you don’t taste the chemicals, just the water. Tap water PH may also be above or below 7. While this is great for humans and our finicky taste buds, it can be detrimental to the plants. One thing to watch out for is the amount of sodium (NaCl or salt) in the water. If you water your plants with overly salty water, their eventual size could be reduced by as much as 50%. Tap water can also contain chlorides, sulfates, and other solids, which helps to explain why the sales of water filtration systems are so brisk. It is also why using distilled water is recommended for young seedlings, before they are transplanted.
 
If you are concerned about the quality of water you are delivering to your plants (or drinking!) there are test kits available for sale at gardening and hardware stores. They will help you deter- mine water quality and let you know which chemicals are prevalent in the largest amounts.
 
If you don’t want to deal with this at all, then rainwater is an easy solution. The best way to catch rainwater is to place a large container under a drain spout during the rainiest months of the year. Usually this will happen in the spring so forethought is once again crucial to success. If the area being drained is generally clear of water-soluble chemicals, the rainwater should be perfect for the plants; Then your only problem is storing the water and transporting it to the site.

Texas Man Faces Possible Life in Prison For Pot Brownies

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 22nd 2014 by THCFinder
life-in-jail-for-pot-brownies
A 19-year-old Texas man could be facing the possibility of life in prison for allegedly baking and selling pot brownies.
 
According to police in Round Rock, a city north of Austin, officers found 1.5 pounds of brownies, along with a pound of marijuana, digital scales, $1,675 in cash and several bags of marijuana at Jacob Lavoro's apartment last month.
 
Now, Lavoro faces a first-degree felony and if convicted, the former high school football player with a clean record faces a possible punishment ranging from five years to life behind bars.
 
His father Joe Lavoro called the potential punishment “outrageous.”
 
“Five years to life? I’m sorry, I’m a law-abiding citizen, I’m a conservative, but I’ll be damned,” Joe Lavoro said. “This is wrong. This is damn wrong.”
 
Prosecutors say the charge is so severe because of Lavoro’s brownie recipe. Authorities say he mixed in hash oil, which features a far higher concentration of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana. Under Texas law, the hash oil can be treated similarly to far more serious narcotics such as ecstasy.
 
Because the drops of oil were cooked into the brownies, police weighed the entire brownie batch – sugar, flour and butter – and charged him with possessing 1.5 pounds of drugs.
 
Jack Holmes, Lavoro’s defense attorney, believes the charge should be downgraded.
 
“They’ve weighed baked goods in this case,” Holmes said. “It ought to be a misdemeanor.”
 
Lavoro has pleaded not guilty. His father remains upset that prosecutors aren’t backing down.
 
“If he did something wrong, he should be punished, but to the extent that makes sense,” he said. “This is illogical.”
 
Lavoro is due back in court next month.
