Pros And Cons Of Hemp Production
Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, December, 11th 2013 by THCFinder
Growing hemp is a bursting industry. There are millions of dollars to be made as the amazing (non psychoactive) form of cannabis beings to take root in the US. The plant can be used for just about anything, from clothing to fuel. A lot of people think that growing hemp could eliminate a lot of the problems that the United States are dealing with. Saving fossil fuels and trees is very important with the human population constantly growing and hemp is the one plant that can help with that.
As said above, the benefits of hemp are endless. It takes up less space and yields a great deal more than cotton. It doesn't get you stoned either, so it's technically not even a drug. By inhaling this stuff, all you're likely to get is a massive headache and a strong drive to get real bud. Hemp is in the process of making a lot of people rich as well, showing how much of a financial gain it would be if the hemp industry were to really take hold.
While the majority of the facts about hemp are pros, there are some cons as well. Since hemp plants don't depend on gender like the cannabis plant, there is no need to pull the males from the crop. If the males in a hemp crop are producing a large amount of pollen and there's a medical cannabis outdoor grow somewhere close by, a windy day can result in the destruction of an entire cannabis field. Which means that there will have to be measures put in place to make sure that doesn't happen.
The most money to be made from cannabis relies on the medical aspect. As an incredible medicine, cannabis is sure to bring hope in to a lot of peoples' lives that have tried all that they can for a cure. But if both hemp and cannabis were allowed to be produced without bullying from the federal government, there is a large amount of money to be made and an even bigger amount of people to be helped. It is incredibly important to know the benefits of industrial hemp as well as medical marijuana, as both can benefit the economy and society overall.
New Harvard Study: Marijuana Does Not Cause Schizophrenia

A new Harvard study published in the journal Schizophrenia Research has found evidence that cannabis use, regardless of how often or in what quantities, does not lead to an increase in schizophrenia, despite decades of propaganda to the contrary.
For the study, researchers examined patients separated into four sample-groups; “sample 1: 87 non-psychotic controls with no drug use; sample 2: 84 non-psychotic controls with cannabis use; sample 3: 32 patients with a schizophrenia spectrum psychosis with no drug use; sample 4: 76 patients with schizophrenia spectrum psychosis with cannabis use. All cannabis using subjects used this drug during adolescence, and no other substance, with the exception of alcohol. Structured interviews of probands and family informants were used to obtain diagnostic information about probands and all their known relatives.”
After conducting this study, the Harvard researchers concluded that; “The results of the current study suggest that having an increased familial morbid risk for schizophrenia may be the underlying basis for schizophrenia in cannabis users and not cannabis use by itself.”
The study, which was led by Lynn DeLisi, MD, Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, can be found by clicking here.
This is one of several schizophrenia-related studies released this year; one government funded study found that cannabis may actually combat the symptoms of schizophrenia, and another found that it may lead to better cognitive function in those who are schizophrenic.

This strain is one that you want in your jar if you want to get really, really stoned.

Kryptonite OG will give the smoker an uplifting high and happy feelings. It's great for patients in pain, since it lasts a good amount of time and has such a high THC percentage.

With good looks and good effects, the last part about this bud is the taste. Most users say that it has a 50/50 fruity-earthy smell and taste, but whatever it is, you'll like it. With smooth hits and pleasant effects, you should keep a strain like this close at hand for those days where you wake up with a headache or a night where you have trouble falling asleep. Kryptonite OG is highly recommended for patients and recreational users alike.
