The Instagram Series; Top Five Grower Feeds

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, October, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
top-grows-instagram-seriesI express my respect for marijuana growers more than anyone else. They work so hard and put such love in to their harvest, how can you not give them the utmost respect for the weed they produce? From germination to harvest, I've found some of the best growers that Instagram has to offer, thanks to my followers. Out of all of the growers that were mentioned, I was only able to pick five. All of you are awesome and I wish that I could specifically mention every grower because we wouldn't have weed without you guys!
 
1. @loaf408 & @mrs_loaf408
 
Talk about dank plants. If you're not following these two, you haven't been paying attention. They produce some of the best looking plants that I've ever seen, packed with crystals and big ass buds! Not only that, but every once in a while, @loaf408 gives AMAZING grow advice to novice growers and answers questions. Make sure you're paying attention because he only does this Q&A once a week!
 
2. @faderphoto
 
This is a new feed for me but WOW! Gorgeous plants and some beautiful outdoor shots, which is nice because a lot of grow ops are indoors. it's nice to see some blue sky behind those buds, am I right? @faderphoto also hosts the occasional giveaway, including dope glass that you should definitely check out!
 
3. @high_above_the_ignorance
 
Growers everywhere risk their safety to bring us quality medicine. Unfortunately for this current AZ resident, he's hung up his gloves and stopped growing for now. Laws against growing are absolutely ridiculous in some states and AZ happens to be one of those states where the risks outweigh the benefits. Stick with this feed while he's working on moving back to California, where his weed will once again bless feeds all over Instagram!
 
4. @komagrows
 
Another feed that I've never seen before but wish that I had! Full of cookies, diesel, and OG, this feed is sure to bring a daily dose of fire to your Instagram life! Gorgeous weed, roots for days, and even some macro shots of the buds that get produced in the grows. A highly recommended feed if you want to see some seriously great genetics1
 
5. @strainhunters
 
Did you guys really think that I could write about growers and NOT mention these guys? They grow all over the place, travel to grow ops in countries that most of us will never visit. @strainhunters has some of the best plants, the most formidable genetics,  and some of the coolest up-close shots of plants emerging from their seeds. One of the highest (lol) recommended grow feeds on Instagram, definitely.

Cannabis and Violence

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, October, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
smoking-promotes-peace-and-fun-goodliving
Marijuana is a drug. Whether we like it or not, it is what it is. People still tell others "marijuana brings violence" and "people die because of marijuana". Oh they do? Marijuana has a very peaceful and serene effect on those that smoke. Occasionally, there is an unfortunate person who is allergic to pot and yes, that does happen. There are plenty of people who get hives or extremely sick when they smoke. But is marijuana a violent thing? What about the plant makes people say that it's harmful?
 
Well the government says it's dangerous... Therefore, it must be, right? Wrong. It's debatable if our buddies on the higher ups realize that THEY are the cause of the violence surrounding marijuana. It's the government who blasts up grow ops with guns, shields, and Kevlar vests. A dispensary raid looks like a terrorist bomb threat when you see them recorded on YouTube. Now please, riddle me this; why in the hell do authorities need to blast in to a clinic, guns blazing, and shouting just to tell the people that they're being shut down? It is a waste of taxpayer money and makes the authorities look like complete jerks.
 
How about when the DEA sends hundreds of men in to a rural mountain area, equipped with guns, helicopters, and ATVs to hunt for pot farmers that may not even be there? While the farmers in these situations usually have weapons of some sort, one must take in to account that pot becomes a lot of people's lives. It funds the food that they give to their children, it pays for the clothes that they wear, and the electricity that keeps them warm on a cold winter night. Not only is the raid itself a waste of money but there are families because torn to shreds just because their parents were trying to put food on the table.
 
Making marijuana illegal will obviously cause violence. The more things that are taken away from the people, the more violent they get. People need their freedom. Removing a person's freedom will eventually cause problems. We are not animals and we certainly do not deserve to be treated like them. As more studies are released on the benefits of marijuana, we may begin to see more violence. While ideally, the government and potheads should be able to coexist, it's highly unlikely that we'll be able to see a nonviolent road to marijuana legalization.
 
It is my belief that there is a peaceful way to get points across that our cause is one that is for the good of the people. Marijuana helps all kinds, all over the world. We use it, our pets can use it. By breaking down doors, the government makes it harder for us to sit back and do this peacefully. It is all of our wish that marijuana will be able to be legal one day and there will be no more deaths, no more guns, and no more violence surrounding such a peaceful idea.

Resin - Have You Smoked It?

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, October, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder

Resin – Have You Smoked It?

Everyone who considers themselves a pot head has smoked resin at some point in their smoking career.

Resin-hbtv1

If you haven’t, you’re either an extremely lucky person and you always have weed or you haven’t been smoking long enough to know the extreme frustration of not having any bud. I have smoked a good amount of resin. It’s gross, tarry, and just awful. Not only that but the high isn’t great and it doesn’t last long. So what’s the point? I honestly think that merely smoking the bowl makes me feel better about being without Mary Jane. Sometimes, maybe it’s just better to wait.

Most stoners say that resin is bad for you. And I really don’t doubt that at all. Studies have shown that marijuana does contain tar and all that junk must go somewhere so what else do you think that sticky black stuff is on the inside of your glass? Sure looks like tar to me. However, there still in THC in that tar and you can smoke it providing that you can ignore the terrible taste. Not to mention that most people light their bowls with lighters, which means that you’re probably inhaling more butane than you normally would smoking the good green stuff and that definitely can’t be good for you! :(

pipe-cleaning-007

Although I definitely don’t condone smoking resin and wish that I never had to do it myself, it does assist in a pinch. I strongly recommend setting aside a gram or so just in case you run in to a dry spell, you have a little bit of backup. It’s better to have something set aside than potentially subject your lungs to a ton of gross stuff from trying to smoke resin. Like I said, maybe in an emergency but it is highly recommended by the majority of stoners that you avoid puffing and just pass on resin!

Sex and Weed

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, October, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
sex-and-weed-getting-high-having-sexThis will probably be a pretty personal subject for some people but there's two very different sides to the topic of pot and sex. There are plenty of people that say that pot makes sex so much better... But science says differently. In my personal experience, the only hindrance of smoking and having sex is that everything seems slower, so it's slightly harder to initiate an intimate situation... But once that obstacle has been overcome, high sex is the best sex.
 
Dr. Juan C. Paredes, a doctor of psychiatry in Miami, says that smoking before sex can lead to weak orgasms or non at all. Not only that, but the doctor states that prolonged and habitual use of the plant can lead to erectile disfunction and an overall disinterest in sex at all. Smoking marijuana also can lead to a low sperm count in men, which can cause problems when starting a family.
 
On the other hand, I stumbled upon an article written by a man named Steve Davis. He ventured to a marijuana grow op in Northern California and experienced the ultimate surprise when he realized that the female growers were actually using bubblehash and resin from the plants as a female version of Viagra. The girls on the farm explained to Davis that by inserting the bubblehash and resin in to their lady parts, they could experience incredibly increased sexual desires, as well as overwhelming orgasms. 
 
Unfortunately, it's super difficult to find any answer one way or the other. Surveys conducted over the years and most of the results have been so close to half and half, that I've come to the conclusion that sexual desires while stoned are directly related to the a) the strain that was smoked and b) the person's mood before they smoke. If you're sitting on the couch smoking an Indica strain, you're probably going to end up with couch lock and not want to do anything. Sativa may make you get up and sexually charge your partner. Or perhaps it's the other way around for you!
 
If a person smokes and is in a crappy mood, I highly doubt they'll be wanting to interact with anyone. Marijuana makes it easy for you to vanish within yourself. A bad mood will create a problem because you'll be so introverted that your partner won't be able to convince you to hug them, let alone sleep with them. Bad moods are definitely a sex-stopper. Marijuana may or may not be but is entirely up to the person who smokes it.

Some Anti-Marijuana Slogans

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, October, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
anti-marijuana-slogans
We've all seen the hilarious anti-pot ads that groups put out. If you smoke pot, you'll run over a kid on a bike or possibly you'll end up looking like a delated balloon. Highly unlikely. I don't know if they believe that their tactics actually work because I don't ever remember being afraid of pot after seeing anti-smoking ads. The only actual campaign that I ever believed to be effective was the Meth Project, in which they showed the deterioration of the human body while addicted to meth. But weed isn't meth... Not even close.
 
The following are slogans that have been used in anti-marijuana campaigns. They don't make a lot of sense and they certainly don't assist in helping to keep marijuana illegal. I wonder if the people who created these slogans know that they're not taken seriously by their alleged target audience. Either way, for your enjoyment. Also, they all seem to rhyme. You've been warned.
 
- "Put that stash in the trash!"
Did you pay for the stash? No? Then why are you telling me to throw it away? There was money involved in the acquisition of the stash and throwing it out is like tossing out the contents of your wallet. Anyone who spends their hard earned money on bud isn't going to readily toss their jar of bud in a trashcan.
 
- "Pot makes your brain rot... So let's not."
Television and the media make your brain rot. Marijuana enlightens you to see all sides of the argument, rather than stay close minded. In my experience, the people who are the most difficult to convince are the ones who refuse to open their mind to alternate possibilities. I say smoke pot, become a smarter person.
 
- "An ounce of weed a day takes your life away!"
I could absolutely smoke an ounce in a day! I would have a blunt in hand during every single activity. Unfortunately, weed is expensive and I'm very limited with funds so I'll stick to the small amount of bud that I smoke. Ideally, if my jar just refilled itself every time it ran out would be amazing. An ounce a day sounds perfect.
 
- "Say not to pot!"
This one doesn't even really make sense. I think it's a little far reaching to try to make these slogans always rhyme. The reasoning behind the rhyming idea must be the fact that the human brain seems to remember simple things. Unfortunately, potheads aren't simple thinkers.
 
- "Get high on life, not drugs!"
Let us get right on that while our country bombs Syria, Iraq, and whatever other place we feel compelled to involved ourselves in. Getting high on life might've been a somewhat accomplishable feat when there weren't so many rules holding us in place. However, when the American dream consists of working a 9-5 just to pay for your existence doesn't seem like something you can get high off. So do you want to smoke a joint?
 
- "Are you stoned or just stupid?"
There's no need to turn to insults. Telling stoners they're stupid is only going to make them smoke more. Turing to aggression won't help either cause. Grade school insults aren't going to make people hate marijuana.
 
The key is to just know your facts. Avoid listening to obnoxious propaganda that isn't backed by any facts. A lot of anti-drug campaigns use scare tactics to keep people away from smoking. Telling potheads that they're going to go crazy, kill themselves, or even others isn't going to work basically because it's not true! Stoners (with the exception of a few) are some of the most calm, logical people that I've encountered. Being educated is the first step to legalization!

Ice In The Bong; Yes Or No?

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, October, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
ice-in-your-bong-for-cold-hitsIce In The Bong; Good Or Bad?
 
Most bongs that are on the market today come equipped with ice catchers. This added tool makes it possible for you to put ice cubes in your bong, which people like because it cools the smoke before you inhale it. However, there are some rumors surrounding ice in bongs. While it may cool the smoke, you're also inhaling a ton of water vapor from the ice cubes. This can lead to severe bronchitis and lung problems, as inhaling too much water vapor isn't good for your lungs.
 
When the hot smoke from the bowl passes over the cubes in the bong, the ice melts in to the smoke, which goes straight to your lungs. It's extremely difficult for me to find any sort of studies relating to this issue. Mostly, it's all forums of stoners bickering back and forth about their opinions. I turned to the E-cigs that people are smoking these days. While the Cigs aren't the same as ice in a bong, the selling point is that you're inhaling water vapor, rather than smoke. Unfortunately, Dr. Mike Feinstein - a spokesman for the American Lung Association - says that these products are unsafe and are potentially worse than actual cigarettes.
 
In my personal experience, ice in a bong hurts the hell out of my lungs. As someone who has suffered from severe bronchitis due to over inhalation of second hand smoke, I can definitely feel the difference between a bong with ice and one without. When I smoke a bong with ice in it, it's almost like the smoke freezes in my lungs, making it extremely hard to breathe. When I smoke without ice, this feeling doesn't happen. I'm not sure if my lungs are just damaged because I used to smoke cigarettes and because of the bronchitis but I do not smoke with ice in my bongs... Ever. If I want to cool the smoke down, I fill my bong with water that's been in the refrigerator. That way, I'm inhaling just the smoke, without the vapor from the cubes.
 
As I stated before, there really is no right answer to this question. My personal belief is that you shouldn't put ice in your bong. But that's just me. Smoking itself can be argued about whether or not it's healthy. There are most certainly healthier ways to get high other than smoking. It all comes down to what you think you should do. Cold water in the bong works perfectly for me although I definitely prefer to eat my weed over anything else. Be healthy and safe, fellow stoners! :)
