Joints Vs Blunts
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, October, 17th 2013 by THCFinder
There's a huge difference between a joint and a blunt. While both are equally great, all stoners who like to smoke any kind of paper will have a preference. Each rolling medium can differ in size, weight, and shape. People take serious pride in their rolling skills, whether it's a joint or blunt. As always, there are pros and cons to each one but they both have benefits.
A joint can be rolled in a multitude of flavors. There are seriously so many different kinds of papers out there, it's difficult to even choose what to roll. If this is your problem, why not try mixing them? Using more than one paper will not only result in more flavors but you can pack more weed in to it. There's also the rolls of rolling paper that allow you to make footlong joints if that's what you desire. There are papers that look like cigarettes, clear papers, and organic papers. With so many options, a true stoner always has a stock of papers, whether they smoke lots of joints or not. The downside to the joint is that the bigger they get, the harder the are to roll. The papers are usually pretty flimsy so the person rolling has to be extremely delicate as to not rip the paper, rendering the joint un-smokeable. Some might argue that a joint doesn't hit as smoothly as a blunt. That is the opinion of the smoker, though, as some could argue the opposite.
Blunts are what people smoke in large groups. It's an easy way to use a little bit of weed and get really high. Blunts are the foundations of new friendships. The paper is thicker, which makes the roll easier and you can pack much more weed into a blunt. Again, they can come in all shapes and sizes. Being able to roll a perfect blunt is a coveted art in the stoner community. There are people able to roll blunts in the shape of names, animals, and geometric shapes. All of these creations are awesome AND smokeable. A negative of smoking blunts is that if they're not rolled properly, they can be extremely harsh. If the blunt or wrap that was used is bad, the blunt will also taste pretty awful. As with joints, blunt wraps come in flavors. Getting adventurous with wraps can be dangerous, especially if you spend time rolling a nice looking blunt just to realize that the wrap tastes terrible.
While blunts are the tougher of the two, joints and the many flavors they come in have my vote. From cupcake to cherry and everything in between. A blunt every once in a while is great but rolling up a cherry/cupcake/peppermint joint is a mouthwatering idea. Joints are smaller as well and easier to transport for someone on the go.
Marijuana Grows Destroying Ancient Artifacts?
Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, October, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
An article released on the Time-Standard News website stated that a marijuana grow had been found to be on top of a historical site that contained important artifacts. While this is extremely unfortunate, it is a situation that could have been avoided had the growers been able to cultivate their plant in a safer, more researched environment. Since the plant is illegal, these growers have no choice other than to search for isolated sites where they think they won't be disturbed. While the areas at these sites aren't always studies before planting, there is always a risk that a grow site will harm artifacts buried beneath it.
Marijuana needs to be grown in warmer climates and most of the time, the sites have to be far enough away from civilization that no stumbling hikers will find it. The grow sites are also huge plots of land and depending on location, can stretch for miles. It is totally possible that a grow site may end up on top of parts of an archeological dig but if the person was allowed to grow plants in their home or a greenhouse next door, the ground would have never been disturbed.
By allowing a grower the option to grow inside their home or within a few feet of their house, this situation could be easily avoided. Cities could have permits for grows and inspectors could come in, make sure that the ground is acceptable for a grow, and then the farmers could plant their marijuana. Not only is that a good thing for the growers, so that they can tend to their plants right at home, but the city would make money off of that plan by issuing the permits and having the inspectors. It's a win/win situation, providing there are no ridiculous rules to get the permit. It should be a simple inspection. Is the ground safe for planting? Is it near any underground powerlines or water pipes? Can it be shielded from the road? And obviously, is the grow on top of any artifacts that may contain a historical value?
Regulating the grows in a fair way would eliminate this problem. It is very unfortunate that this particular grow site happened to end up on top of a location that it definitely should not have been in. Growing marijuana is a tedious task. These people are trying to make a living while at the same time, provide medicine to people that are sick.
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.
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?
Lighters Or Hemp Wick
Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, October, 12th 2013 by THCFinder
Most people are aware that when they smoke weed, they get some of the residue from the butane in their lighters. This makes up a lot of what's left in your bowl after a while (resin... which is why it's not that good to smoke). Butane definitely messes with the taste of the weed that you're smoking. It's also not that good for you. To avoid getting that gross butane taste, there's hemp wick.
Hemp wick is a wick coated with beeswax. It's natural, so there's none of that butane taste because it's just a wick. It works best when wrapped around a lighter so that you can easily light the wick and hold it to light the bowl. This way, instead of inhaling harmful chemicals, you're getting a much cleaner hit. When you take a hit of some dank with wick instead of a lighter, it's amazing. You can totally taste the weed, without that sour/harsh butane taste.
By choosing to use hemp wick rather than a lighter, you're smoking healthier and cleaner. You don't need to use the lighter are much when smoking a bowl because the wick stays lit when it's passed from person to person. You're also able to actually taste the buds the way they're supposed to be tasted. There is no harsh aftertaste when you smoke with hemp wick.
While most people do use lighters because they're convenient, it is definitely healthier to use the wick. Inhaling butane has serious effects on the lungs and can give massive headaches when too much is ingested. That applies more to badly made BHO but either way, this chemical isn't good for you. Smoke healthier by using hemp wick, which can be bought at almost every head shop. I promise that you'll enjoy smoking with wick much more than a lighter and your lungs with thank you!
Weed In The Music Industry
Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, October, 10th 2013 by THCFinder
Normal people get arrested for smoking weed but celebrities - now more than ever - have begun to adopt marijuana in to their lyrics and music videos. From A$AP Rocky to Xzibit, music is a key part in the spread of marijuana knowledge. Even if the weed is just in the form of a blunt in a rappers hand, it's showing that "hey, we're successful and important and we smoke weed".
Recently, Justin Bieber has been caught with pot. While most people don't like Bieber, he's been on a rampage with Mary Jane, with weed on his tour bus at the Canadian border and smoke pouring out of his car windows when he rolls up to his private jet. A child star beginning to experiment with pot (and openly) could be a seriously useful weapon for the cause in the future. While singing "Baby, baby, baby" will get a water bottle thrown at his head, Bieber doesn't have to worry about us stoners getting mad when he show up on the web smoking a blunt.
Music is a huge way for people to understand the wonders of marijuana. The catchy beats make the lyrics stick in a person's mind and that's the goal. Getting people to talk about marijuana is just another way to educate people. By singing positive messages about weed, musicians can help to promote that it's a good thing. Plus, music videos are always cool when there's someone famous smoking a blunt, sitting on a dope muscle car, as seems to be commonplace in the video industry these days.
As more musicians come forth with their favoritism of the ganja, we can be assured that their message will reach huge audiences. While Cypress Hill has been rapping about smoking for years, it's the newer generations that need to be listening to some stoner beats. Not all of the younger kids will want to listen to Snoop and Bob Marley. Music changes with the generations and if marijuana is going to continue to permeate the industry, the songs are going to have to mold with the changes of society. Instead of heavy beats and rap music, marijuana may be mentioned in the poppy, upbeat songs of Miley Cyrus and the like.
