Growing Tips Starter Info

You’ve got the green lungs, but now you’re ready to acquire the green thumb.

The joy you feel from growing your own smoke is amazing and the benefits are never-ending. You know that it’s time you graduated your Mary Jane status and really got into the nitty gritty of what she’s all about. Growing can be confusing at first but with proper guidance and a good attention to detail anyone can be a successful MJ farmer.

Seeds

Starting out with quality seeds is where it all begins, there are plenty of websites that allow you to go on their site and pick which seeds you want and get them shipped to you. Some of these can have great seeds and others not so much, getting them from a grower or someone else you know with good seeds is another option to explore.  The next step is to germinate the seeds to get them ready for planting, you can do this by placing 4-6 seeds in- between a few moist paper towels and waiting for the little sprouts to pop out from the seeds, once this happens they’re ready for the soil.

Soil

  mj-grow-3  

You want to get the best soil you can get your hands on, the soil plays a very important role in the success of your grow.  Mixing the soil with sand or sponge rock would be a good idea to help the soil breathe.  The PH balance of your soil should be between 6.5 and 7.5, you don’t want overly acidic soil. Another issue some people run into is nutrients, you have to be careful not to add too many seeing as this will damage your plant and could burn your MJ roots. The best way to start nutes, is to add them gradually, letting the Mary get adjusted to them.

Lighting

   mj-grow-4   

Fluorescent lights work the best when growing some dank. Position the lights about 2 inches from the plant as not to burn them and give them room to grow up. The wattage and how long you need to have your lights on depends on where in the growing stage you are, though natural light is the best environment you can still get the job done with lights of your own

Water and Humidity

     mj-grow-5     

Watering is a crucial part of growing as well, over watering can lead to mold and mildew problems, which is also why you have to maintain the proper humidity in your growing area. Feel the plants to see if they’re moist, if so you can wait about 2-3 days before watering again. During light hours temperatures should be between 68-78 degrees Fahrenheit and dark hours about a 15 degree drop difference in temperature. Investing in a dehumidifier is a smart move that will help you regulate crop temps.

Now all there’s left to do is watch the green begin to roll in and to wait patiently for your crop to mature so you can let the drying process begin. You’ve done all the proper steps to getting yourself a higher than life stone…Be proud pot head.

What are Cannabis Concentrates

What are Cannabis Concentrates

mj-concentrates-1

The world of Cannabis Sativa is filled with millions of little ins and outs that help us pin point that million dollar high.

Cannabis Concentrates are a gift that keeps on giving, and in short concentrates are the pure form of the main active ingredients in MJ.

The first form of concentrates to hit the scene was the ever so talented hashish. Usually extracted by beating dried MJ and sieving it through nets to collect the fine dust that falls off, this can range in percentages of up to 70% THC content.

Though now days creative pot head minds have come up with brilliant new ways to get the stuff we love so much.

 mj-concentrates-2 

By using different solvents and chemicals is how many of our concentrates are made today.

Solvent made treats have been around since the 60’s and have only grown in popularity since then. One of the more popular ways to do this is by using Butane. The liquid butane dissolves trichomes on the buds turning them into oil called “Budder”. The process is a long one that involves evaporating the butane after use to remove it from the oil.

Though it’s a tedious process the efforts are greatly appreciated.

Medicinal patients find concentrated great for instant pain relief and peace.

Wax or “Earwax” is another of these that packs a hard punch and the THC content can spiral up to 80% and really get you feeling at home.

   mj-concentrates-3   

Kief is fine and powdery in consistency and is the loose dry resin glands or trichomes of Mary after you sift the buds through a mesh screen. Many grinders already come equipped with a screen for you to collect the kief after you’re done grinding.

The light brown snow that falls from the buds is heavenly, and very potent in THC content.

For a person dealing with chronic medicinal issues concentrates are a God send, the pure cannabinoids navigate through pain and get you feeling like yourself again. For the chronic toker looking to spice things up, wax, hash, or oil will be there to ride into the sky with you, happy experimenting!.

Medical marijuana users still worry about DUI

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, July, 20th 2013 by THCFinder
marijuana-dui-issuesNow that Nevada’s Legislature has ended 13 years of ignoring a voter-approved constitutional mandate to provide medical marijuana to sick people, everything’s fine. Right?
 
Now that state-authorized medical marijuana dispensaries will be setting up shop, starting in 2014, getting the drug won’t involve committing a crime. (Under current law, you can’t buy marijuana, even with a prescription. You can grow your own plants, but buying the seeds is illegal.)
 
But with dispensaries, the problem’s solved. Right?
 
Maybe not.
 
While plenty of time was spent this session getting the dispensary bill passed, the Legislature ran out of time to consider a separate bill that addressed the issue of driving under the influence of marijuana.
 
Medical marijuana users — if they’re not careful — could easily violate the DUI standard found in Nevada Revised Statutes 484C.120(3), which says it’s against the law to drive with more than 2 nanograms of marijuana per milliliter in your blood, or 5 nanograms of marijuana metabolite. (A nanogram is a billionth of a gram, and a milliliter is 1/1000th of a liter.)
 
That’s a stricter standard, by the way, than exists for cocaine or heroin (50 nanograms per milliliter of blood), methamphetamine (100 nanograms) or LSD (10 nanograms). And there is no exception for people who have a prescription for medical marijuana.
 
That means medical marijuana patients might inadvertently smoke or otherwise ingest their medicine, drive a car even hours later and potentially be breaking the law.
 
That bothered Assembly Majority Leader William Horne, D-Las Vegas. His Assembly Bill 351 would have forced prosecutors to prove a driver was actually impaired by marijuana, rather than just show the nanogram standard was exceeded.
 
“I think we set people up for facing charges that may be ridiculous,” Horne said.

A Drugmaker Bets on Marijuana to Treat Diabetes, Epilepsy, and More

Medicinal marijuana advocates contend that smoking pot helps relieve pain and alleviate nausea. British drug company GW Pharmaceuticals (GWP:LN) is betting that medicine made from cannabis can also treat maladies as diverse as diabetes, colitis, and epilepsy.
 
GW is the only pharma group in the world now selling a prescription medicine derived from marijuana plants, as opposed to synthetic equivalents. The drug, a nasal spray called Sativex, has been approved by regulators in eight countries—Italy, most recently—to treat spasms associated with multiple sclerosis. A request for U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval is pending.
 
Taking aim at a potentially much-bigger market, the company this year plans to launch second-stage clinical trials of a cannabis-based drug that has showed promise in treating Type 2 diabetes. The drug, with the tongue-twisting name of tetrahydrocannabivarin-9, improved patients’ production of insulin and helped lower blood-sugar levels between meals.
 
An estimated 371 million people worldwide suffer from Type 2 diabetes. Patients taking the cannabis-based drug “could potentially be controlled on oral therapy for a longer period of time and wouldn’t need to take injections,” says Mike Cawthorne, a GW consultant who is director of metabolic research at the University of Buckingham.

Marijuana Use Associated With Decreased Symptoms Of Opiate Withdrawal

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, July, 18th 2013 by THCFinder
drug-withdrawlsCannabis consumption is associated with mitigated symptoms of opiate withdrawal in subjects undergoing methadone maintenance treatment, according to the findings of a new study published online in The American Journal on Addictions.
 
Investigators at the Farber Institute for Neurosciences at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia assessed the use of cannabis in 91 opiate-dependent subjects undergoing methadone maintenance treatment. Researchers found that subjects seeking methadone treatment who acknowledged a history of cannabis use reported “significantly less daily expenditure on acquisition of opiates.”
 
Authors additionally reported that subjects’ use of cannabis during treatment was associated with less severe symptoms of withdrawal on the clinical opiate withdrawal scale (COWS), an index designed to serve as an objective measure of opiate withdrawal. “[I]ncreased cannabis use was found to be associated with lower severity of [opiate] withdrawal in a subset of the sample with available chart data,” authors wrote. “These results suggested a potential role for cannabis in the reduction of withdrawal severity during methadone induction.”
 
They concluded, “The present findings may point to novel interventions to be employed during treatment for opiate dependence that specifically target cannabinoid-opioid system interactions.”

Medical Marijuana For Kids: Why I Give Cannabis To My 7-Year-Old

With news stories and opinion pieces popping up daily about medical marijuana legalization, dad Brandon Krenzler and his 7-year-old daughter, MyKayla Comstock, appeared on HuffPost Live this week to discuss what happens when a minor needs the drug. MyKayla has Leukemia and started taking it shortly after she was diagnosed.
 
Currently, medical marijuana is legal in 18 states and in Washington D.C. However, as Valerie Vande Panne wrote in the Boston Globe, many parents are afraid to ask their children's doctors for the drug, despite support from lawmakers.
 
In a heartbreaking piece, HuffPost blogger Suzanne Leigh, a mother who lost her own child to cancer, spoke about some of the anxiety she felt around the issue. Ultimately, Leigh decided to buy marijuana for her 11-year-old, but she knew other moms and dads who would never consider using it to help their children with cancer.
 
In the clip above, Krenzler says that when MyKayla was first diagnosed, cancer affected her in ways that were "terrifying."
 
"She was very sick, she was in a lot of pain ... she was basically experiencing everything you wouldn't want your daughter to experience," he says.
 
MyKayla adds that she was "really tired" all of the time. But now, she feels better.
