MammothP Review

Lets start the year off right with a review of an amazing product for any garden. You heard that right ANY garden.

This product is MammothP. This product is a bacteria that makes more phosphorus available to the plant. This is important because out of our NPK the ‘P’ or phosphorus is our macro nutrient that helps create those big full flowers.

This product can be used in any medium. Soil. Coco. Rock wool. Hydro.

The average gardner will not use a lot of MammothP. Since the max dosage is about 2ml per gallon. With such low dosage rates and such helpful returns. Up to 16%. That’s a lot. Last I heard co2 caused a 20% increase. We all spend a obscene amount of money on co2. Why not a bacteria?

Moral of the story. If you’re not using MammothP buy some now. It will only improve what you are already doing.

Casualties of the Drug War

How many people do you know that have been arrested for drugs? I bet you or someone rather close to you has at least been hassled with by police over a small amount of cannabis. If you were born into a legal state ask your parents. Im sure they have a story or two for you.

These non violent drug offenses clog up our legal system. They disrupt and often ruin the lives of the offender. There are many times a person who is convicted of a low level drug offense will have to wait seven or more years for a expungement to even be heard.

When you’re convicted of a drug felony or any felony for that matter, all your rights are stripped from you. You can no longer own a firearm. You can no longer vote. In some states won’t let felons hold public office. On top of having your rights removed. Now when you are filling out a job application or a apartment application you either have to lie when they ask ‘have you ever been convicted of a felony’ or you have to check ‘yes’ and almost certainly be denied.

Lastly, you have probation or jail costs. The court might have even fined you.

None of this is helping rehabilitate the person. This only makes their life more difficult then it already was. We need to find a way to fix this broken system.

Coffee and Cannabis

Cannabis and coffee is a popular combination used by recreational and medical users alike. The combination is often referred to as the ‘poor mans speed ball’. This because cannabis is viewed as the depressant and coffee the stimulant. One picks the user up while the other has the opposite effect.

Personally, this is one of my favorite morning rituals. I wake up, drink my coffee, take my CBD and pack a bowl of what ever I got from the dispensary. This puts me into the head space that I prefer. Medicated from the cannabis and alert from the coffee. Many people do this every day.

For those that tire easily from cannabis use. Coffee in the morning might just be the pick me up that they need. You need your medicine in the morning but you don’t want to be dragging all day because you are too medicated. The coffee take that away. No longer are you lethargic. You’ll be surrounded by a euphoric aura as you stroll off to do your daily tasks.

In short, if you are a cannabis user and a coffee drinker then you should try the two together sometime and see what the effect is on you.

 

Do you use cannabis and coffee?

 

Bottled Organics

What is organic gardening? A hardcore organic gardener will say ‘anything that comes out of a bottle is not organic’. But those with a little more slack still consider OMRI or CDFA approved organic. Then there are those that will say its ‘organic’ . When truthfully it is just organic based. Today we are here to talk about bottled organics though, all of which are intended to be used with soil.

There are several OMRI approved bottles and amendments on the market.  One of the more popular organic bottle lines on the market is BioBizz. They have a full line of OMRI organic bottles that come with a custom feeding schedule. These are tried and true. So much so that you can find them at most if not all of the High Times Magazine events.

One of the most popular nutrient brands in the world, Advanced Nutrients, has a entire line of CFDA approved bottles. These even include a organic version of their popular sugar, bud candy, and their popular bloom booster, big bud.

Aurora Innovations or more popularly known as roots organic is a CDFA approved bottle and dry amendment line. There are dry amendment for grow, bloom, and foundation (or micro). There is also a grow and bloom bottle. On top of this there are all the bottled additives your plant could desire. Roots organic goes the extra mile by providing a bagged coco/peat mix medium that pairs up very well with their in depth feeding schedule.

General Hydroponics has a “organic line” that is called General Organics. This line is not OMRI or CDFA approved. A more appropriate name for this line would ‘Generally Organic’. There are organic materials used to make these products but there are also chemicals. Don’t believe us? Look on the back of the bottle next time you buy fertilizer. If there are any words that end in ‘-ate’. Then you have chemicals in your bottles.

This is just a brief overview of a few of the more popular organic bottled nutrients that are available on the market. We hope this helps you on your search for bottled organics.
