Industrial Hemp Surges Forward
Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, October, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
Medical usage aside, the plant we love has a closely related relative that produces an amazing fiber that can be used for pretty much everything. From fuel to fabric, hemp is better than any material we use today. It grows faster, healthier, and takes up less space than our current crops. But since the hemp and marijuana plant are so similar, hep production is illegal... Or it was. Recently, along with the push for medical marijuana, there is also a push for hemp.
California recently passed a bill to allow hemp production. This means farmers will be able to break in to a $500 million industry that will save us thousands of dollars in paper, oil, fabric, and land. California lawmakers claim that there is no reason that hemp should be illegal, since it doesn't contain THC, which is the component in the plant that gets you high. Not only has California jumped on this hemp producing bandwagon, but there are nine other states that allow the production of hemp. There are also another 30 countries that produce the plant and manufacture it.
By allowing the production of hemp, we lessen the need for crops like corn. Hemp takes much less water to grow than corn. The hemp plants also have no need for pesticides or growth hormones, as they grow extremely fast. Hemp has an incredibly long list of uses, not only for industrial products but for fashion, food, and disease. Not being able to produce hemp is serious defect in the economy. By saving both land and water, we clear room for animals to live because we all know that the human race is not-so-slowly encroaching on animal territory. Hemp would allow us to have a more naturally sustaining economy because it can be used for so many products.
The human population is expanding every day. If more states allow for the production of hemp, we can begin to use it for things that we normally wouldn't use it for. Now that cultivation of the plant is legal, more studies can be done on it to see what other amazing benefits it holds for us to discover. The cannabis plant is always showing us new ways that it can help us. How long is it going to take for people to really grasp the fact that cannabis can genuinely help the human race improve?
Five Steps To Increase Your Marijuana Garden Yields
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, October, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
Many of you marijuana growers have probably heard the term “ScrOG” before. Much like many growing techniques, scrogging marijuana strives to make the process a little bit easier and a lot more beneficial. The term “ScrOG” is an abbreviation of “Screen of Green.” The idea behind the scrog method is to optimize your lights and to bring lower buds up to the top of the canopy where they could produce higher yields. It’s a method that has been around for a while (prior to high-intensity discharge—HID—lamps) and has been used effectively, even with basic fluorescent lights. Here’s how to do it;
1. Place a screen at 20 to 25 inches from the pots
2. Cut off the top cola of each plant
3. Prune bottom branches when top hits the screen
4. Force into flowering 2 days after pruning bottom
5. Attach all branches horizontally to the screen
Perhaps the most important thing to have with a scrog setup is a screen (generally some kind of wire or even a tight rope). A sturdy screen that can hold back the top canopy and has 2-inch by 2-inch squares built in will certainly be adequate. Screens are also the most important aspects of scrogging. You are effectively “training” the marijuana plants to grow in your desired direction without having to do anything harsh that could affect growth adversely. The distance between pots and the screen should be 20 to 25 inches
This is particularly useful for individuals who either have limited vertical space or limited light emission. Having a screen over the top of the plants, keeps them lower, but it also allows the light to concentrate more evenly on each of the plants. In addition, horizontal growth will still produce useful plants in the long run.
A Method to the Madness
But, the scrogging method isn’t all about setting up a screen and watching your marijuana grow. Although very little work is involved in general, you will still need to take great care if you want to scrog correctly.

Pipes Vs Bongs
Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, October, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
There are many stoners that really love their glass. Of course, there are so many different kinds to choose from. This piece will go through the pipes and the bongs... Which one is better? Stoners everywhere will have a different opinion. There are pros and cons to each. In the end, it's up to you!
Pipes are classic. They come in all shapes and sizes, not to mention colors. Bowls are easy to hide because they're usually pretty small. Of course, there are bowls that are enormous but they usually only exist in memes about Snoop Dogg. A bowl is an easy thing to transport. Most can fit in a pocket or purse. However, the unfortunate part of bowls is that unless you have a screen, there's usually some pull through and you end up with charred pieces of bud in your mouth. Nobody wants that! Bowls don't offer any sort of filtration either, so the hits are sometimes quite harsh.
Bongs are smooth hitters, bigger in size with water filtration. Mostly, bongs are for seasoned smokers and shouldn't be attempted by newbies. There are hundreds of different kinds of bongs. The water provides a way to avoid getting ash in your mouth, plus it cools the smoke. But being as large as they are, bongs are extremely hard to hide. This means that people in dorms or small apartments or those who live with their parents should steer clear of these masterpieces until they're in a situation where the piece can be displayed properly.
Whether you're smoking bongs or pipes, it all depends on how you're feeling! Some prefer bongs and some prefer pipes! I strongly recommend that people stick to their comfort zone when it comes to glass like this though. Having a large bong isn't impressive if you can't clear it. I can't stress this enough. Get a piece that fits you, not one to impress friends! This should be something you want to smoke every single day, not a piece that you're afraid of.
