What To Do When Your Marijuana Grow Room Gets Hot

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, July, 25th 2014 by THCFinder

What to do when you’re marijuana grow room is very humid? The grow space will naturally be humid because the marijuana plants emanate moisture that collects in the garden space. To get rid of that moisture, the easiest thing you can do is ventilate the room and replace the moisture with drier air.

For gardens that are closed systems, a dehumidifier must be used. Dehumidifiers have cold tubing that will condense the moisture in the air and make it less humid. Of course, they do release heat and can make the grow space too hot if you’re not careful. To avoid overheating, just affix some air vent tubing to the dehumidifier’s exhaust so that the heat is pointed outside the grow space.

If the room is both hot and humid, an air conditioner could work toward removing the moisture while cooling the garden. Download my free marijuana grow bible and learn more about growing marijuana.

What to do when your marijuana room is too hot? There are plenty of ways to cool down an overheated grow room. See what suits you best:

-It can be ventilated to remove the heat.

-An air conditioner can replace the hot air with cool air.

-Prior to flowering, an air cooler that evaporates water to lower the temperature can be beneficial. These coolers won’t add too much moisture to the air and are ideal and extremely efficient during vegetative growth. They are, however, not good for plants in the flowering stage because they create too much moisture.

-If the temperature drops drastically at night, you could solve the heat issues by running the garden’s lights at night instead of the day.

-Hydroponically-grown plants can shift temperatures based on how hot or cold the water is. You can keep the plants cool even if it’s technically hot outside. If the room temperature is somewhere in the 80′s (27-30*C), try to keep the water temperature in the 60′s (15-20*C). Growers can install aquarium water coolers to keep the water cool automatically.

-Any heat producing equipment should be taken out of the grow room is at all possible (e.g. light ballasts and large pumps).

-Avoiding heat starts from the beginning. Take preventative measures to ensure that heat will not be an issue with your crop. Air- or water-cooled lights keep the lamp’s heat from entering the garden. A series of tubes takes the heat from the lamps to the outside without affecting the temperature in the grow room itself.

Is Alaska The Next Legal State?

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, July, 25th 2014 by THCFinder

alaska-next-weed-stateWith the pioneers in Colorado and Washington, people have really been wondering who will be next in the list of states that allow recreational marijuana. While a lot of people are pointing towards states like Oregon or perhaps California, Alaska is working diligently to bring recreational cannabis to it's citizen. And while Alaska may be a bit out of the way, that doesn't mean that they won't be a hotspot for cannabis tourism.

Alaska was actually supposed to vote on the subject next month in August but the vote has been pushed back to November. The reason for the pushback? The August election will be a state primary election while the November one will be a general election. According to history, these general elections have a greater voter turnout and it is highly anticipated that the state will pass the legal cannabis ruling.

The campaign to get people to vote for the plant is a simple one that provides what people need; information. The Alaskan Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol aims to argue that the legalization of the plant will boost the economy of Alaska, where life is tough for a lot since the state is so barren and cold, not to mention the issues that are discovered with drinking in this state. Not only that but a booming cannabis tourism industry will bring in new people, new money, and create new jobs for the people who already live there. Legal cannabis in Alaska would follow the same basic model as Colorado and Washington, where adults 21 and older would be able to purchase cannabis simply by showing their ID, much like tobacco or alcohol. This change would allow law officials to as always, deal with real problems that need attention and no longer target non-violent stoners.

Although the bill is backed strongly by numerous parties, there is always some sort of opposition. In the case of the Last Frontier State, Big Marijuana Big Mistake is a grassroots coalition dedicated to keeping the plant illegal in Alaska. The group states that this ballot would industrialize and commercialize marijuana and the other products associated with it, including edibles and concentrates. BMBM uses the fear of edibles and concentrates that has been instilled since reports started surfacing that people were dying due to over ingestion of marijuana edibles. However, both incidents of the deaths haven't been directly linked to marijuana and could have been caused by underlying problems. The group also goes on to state that corporations would take away local farmers business and cause problems with mass marketing and advertising. Unfortunately, we already live in a world that's full of media and marketing so it's unclear as to why the group would pick this as one of their main arguments.

The Wall Street Journal reports that not only does Alaska have legal cannabis in their plans but so does Oregon and the District of Colombia for this coming November. California, Vermont, and Nevada all plan to vote on cannabis legalization in 2016 and there are high expectations (haha) that the bills will pass in these states. So be sure to wish luck to those in Alaska and if you're located there, be sure that you get out and vote Yes On 2!

Research Halted on PTSD Study

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, July, 24th 2014 by THCFinder
research-halted-on-ptsdSuzanna Sisley used to be a professor at the University of Arizona, where she was working on four years of bureaucracy and nonsense to obtain the permission in order to conduct what was thought to be an extremely beneficial study. Sisley was getting ready to conduct the first federally approved research on the effects of cannabis on PTSD, an affliction that our veterans deal with on a constant basis. There are very few studies regarding the subject available so veterans, scientists, and marijuana activists were greatly looking forward to the study when the university terminated Sisley via letter, which stated that the researcher was getting the boot because funding was running out and because "the telemedicine program she worked with is shifting in a different direction". The school denies that Sisley was fired because state legislators opposed the work and were pressuring the school to fire her, something which the school claims wasn't happening. The spokesperson from the college said that they are trying to find someone to replace Sisley.
 
People were outraged when the story began to circulate the internet. Firing someone who was so close to conducting such an important study? Not okay. The study would've taken fifty vets, all suffering from the effects of PTSD, and tested those symptoms with different strains and smoking methods of marijuana. This study would've been the first and only controlled study of the effects that marijuana has on the illness and the fact that it's not commencing has a lot of people hanging their heads.
 
While the teacher is asking to be reinstated, Ricardo Pereyda said that ending the study is a huge disservice to military vets. Pereyda served in the Army in the Iraqi war and now suffers from the symptoms, which include serious depression, anxiety, and bad insomnia. "It allowed me to get some much needed rest and sleep," he said. "It reduced my anxiety attacks. It just allowed me to regain something that I had lost overseas during my deployment and allowed me to reconnect with people around me."
 
The process of getting funding and approval for research like this is difficult and Sisley had made it quiet far. With her termination, there is a great worry that the study will no be continued. That ominous feeling is only reinforced by a statement released by Matt Barden, a spokesperson for the Drug Enforcement Administration. He stated, "In regards to medical marijuana, the DEA of course recognizes the pain and suffering of individuals with seriously illness and their need for medication. However, the FDA has repeatedly concluded that marijuana has a high potentially for addition and no acceptable level of medical use." Unfortunately for Barden, the DEA, and the FDA, the acceptance of medical marijuana is spreading like wildfire and the pressure to conduct studies like these will only increase the longer the "War on Drugs" is dragged out.
