A Growing Trend: Cultivating Marijuana For Personal Fulfillment

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, June, 4th 2016 by THCFinder

michigan marijuana garden federal Edward SchmiedingGrowing marijuana is a very popular thing, and something that seems to get more popular every day. Whenever people express an interest in the marijuana industry, it seems like 9/10 they want to be a grower. I grew marijuana for a handful of years, and plan on getting back to it after this summer heat is over. I know first hand how rewarding and fun cultivating marijuana can be.

Most people want to grow marijuana for profit. More often then not the desire to grow includes visions of grandeur, with people planning on harvesting monster crops and striking it rich even before their plants flip over from veg stage to flower stage. The fact of the matter is, growing marijuana for profit is not nearly as easy as people think, and that’s not just because of the green thumb requirements.

In addition to being able to grow quality marijuana, growers also have to consider getting rid of the crop, which is becoming increasingly difficult for a lot of people because the market is either too crowded in some states, or the grower operates in a state where demand isn’t that high for one reason or another. Add to that testing requirements, overhead, the potential for bugs, heat, mildew, and 280e tax provisions, and growing marijuana for profit is not always the experience that people expect it to be.

Is Marijuana The Gateway Drug To Gardening?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

marijuana cannabis garden lighting lightsA new, nation-wide survey suggests millions of Americans would grow marijuana at home – if it was legal.  According to a new survey an estimated 44.5 million adults[1] would ‘grow your own’ for personal use if growing cannabis was legalized- gardeners and non-gardeners alike.  And that number increased from 10% of adults in 2015 to 18% in 2016. The age group most likely to grow their own if legal is millennials, 18-34 years old (26%).

“A year or two of research doesn’t establish a trend yet, but the jump in these numbers is pretty significant,” says industry analyst Bruce Butterfield. “The largest number of adults most likely to grow marijuana themselves is 18 to 34 year olds, followed by baby boomers aged 55+.”

The survey was conducted online by Harris Poll in January of this year and commissioned by Green State Gardener, a national, e-commerce company that helps growers of medicinal herbs by selling virtually all the equipment they need to succeed.  A flagship Green State Gardener store will open in June in Burlington, VT.

“We now have two years of survey results that show a growing number of gardeners and non-gardeners wanting to grow at home,” says Butterfield.  “So this survey confirms what we saw the year before.”

What Are The Best Marijuana Industry Investment Opportunities Right Now?

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, February, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

marijuana money cashEarlier today I posed a question on my Facebook page – “What do you think are the best investment areas in the cannabis industry right now?” I made sure to state ahead of time that I wasn’t talking about any particular companies, because ‘invest in this company’ blah blah blah, it gets old. I was talking about areas or sectors of the marijuana industry that present good investment opportunities. To be very clear, I am in NO WAY an investor in anything, other than retro arcade games and consumable cannabis, and even then only on a personal level (up to 8 ounces legally in Oregon!). So take my opinion for what you will.

It’s no secret that investor dollars are flooding into the marijuana industry at an ever growing pace, and there’s no end in sight. The marijuana industry is exciting and full of potential, so it’s understandable why everyone wants in. There are a lot of really, really crapping investments being made out there. Again, what do I know since I don’t have anywhere near the dollar amounts that I read about being reported in investment articles, but I know a lot about cannabis and know people that know virtually everything about cannabis, and all of them have been scratching their heads at some of the things we talk about.

I think that a lot of people invest in the wrong things because they are new to cannabis, and think that just because something works in other industries that it will automatically work in the cannabis industry. That’s not the case from what I’ve seen in the over 6 years I’ve been helping run this blog. Like I always say, marijuana is different. The consumers are different, the rules are different, societies view of the industry is different than it is for any other industry. There are so many nuances that it’s impossible to compile a list of all of them, especially since they are almost all in flux and could be gone tomorrow. To say that the marijuana industry and world around it are evolving is a huge understatement.

How To Save Water When Growing Marijuana Plants Outdoors

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, January, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

tree t pee saving water marijuana outdoorWhat Is The Best Way To Save Water When Cultivating Cannabis Outdoors?

My friend Bee sent me a link today on social media that greatly impressed me. The link was to a video of a guy who pitched on the TV Shark Tank. The guy was pitching a product that helps outdoor plants consume less water and prevent frost damage. The product is not necessarily designed for cannabis cultivation, but I think it could be used while growing marijuana outdoors and product amazing results. It’s a very simple, yet effective concept.

To be clear, this is not in any way an advertisement. I genuinely think that this product is amazing and should be something that every outdoor marijuana grower uses. And not only am I impressed with the product, I’m even more impressed (and inspired) with the story behind the product. According to the pitch on the TV show, the person pitching (Johnny Georges) and his father came up with the idea while they were farming.

In order to battle frost they would have to come out and cover the base of the trees they were farming each day, which was very labor intensive. Also the standard irrigation system they were using resulted in a lot of water being sprayed on areas around the tree base, but even more water being sprayed around a large perimeter that resulted in a lot of wasted water. Add wind to the equation which blows even more water away from the base of the tree, and Mr. Georges estimated that only 10% of the water being used was actually going to the tree base where it needed to go.

The Difference Between A Marijuana ‘Edible’ And A Cannabis ‘Consumable’

Marijuana edibles are very popular. I once seen a statistic that stated 40-50% of all legal marijuana-related product sales in America are of edibles. I wouldn’t be surprised if that number grew in upcoming years. More and more people are either consuming marijuana for the first time now that recreational is legal in some states, or they are coming back after a long layoff. I have been trying to get my grandma to consume some cannabis since she’s retired, recreational marijuana is legal in Oregon, and would really benefit from it. She has told me that she would never smoke it again (she did back in the day, she’s a baby boomer), but that she would be interested in a cookie or candy.

Consuming marijuana in smokeless form is a lot more desirable to newbies and returning consumers. Edibles are popular with smokers and vape pen lovers too. I smoke flower, hit dabs, and carry a vape pen on the regular, but you will rarely if ever see me pass up on a cookie, candy, or some other smokeless form of marijuana consumption. I like all things cannabis related. If there was a cannabis deodorant, I’d be the first in line to try it!

I had a very interesting conversation with a cannabis entrepreneur the other day. He asked that I keep his company, product, and his name secret, which I would have done anyways since I’m not in the business of publicizing hardworking people’s proprietary information. Keep it in the vault! All I will say is it was a drink, and I was impressed by it and I’ll leave it at that. Anyhow, he pointed out that he didn’t like the term ‘edible’ and that it should really be a ‘consumable.’ It’s much more encompassing.

Weed Myth: Do Blunts Get You Higher Than Joints?

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, November, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

Because there’s no need to argue about this every time you smoke with your friends anymore, we answer the question – do blunts get you higher than joints?

There may be reasons why you feel higher when you smoke a blunt, but due to other circumstances. So it’s time that the myth was busted – there is a chemical reaction happening in your body when you smoke a blunt that does not occur with a joint. But this doesn’t necessarilymake you higher.

What’s the difference between a joint and a blunt?

There are some very key differences between a joint and a blunt that might be affecting how stoned you feel. Firstly, you would usually roll a joint with a regular paper. Sometimes you can buy papers made out of hemp, but most of the time what you are using is paper. The paper itself does not contain an intoxicating substance, and so the only thing you are consuming when you smoke it is marijuana.
