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.
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.
The United Kingdom has opened up medical cannabis as a option for some patients. There are still restrictions. Such as you must be prescribed by a approved doctor. Also, there is a list of aliments that will qualify a patient. This came because of two boys with epilepsy that were denied access to this life saving medicine.
Cannabis in the UK can be prescribed in cases of
- Children with rare, severe forms of epilepsy
- Adults with vomiting or nausea caused by chemotherapy
- Adults with muscle stiffness caused by multiple sclerosis
This is a small victory of cannabis reform world wide.
There are many ways to consume cannabis today. The old school joint is still a popular choice. Then there is vaping. Next is the world of edibles. There are so many products that fall into the category of consumable cannabis. Join us as we give you a brief overview of each one.
The all iconic joint. Everyone has seen one if not in person then on TV. The joint is the flagship choice of cannabis smokers from the early days until now. Legal dispensaries will even sell pre-rolled joints, in some states.
The less talked about ‘bowl’ is still used today. Those pretty glass pipes that you see at the head shop. You know the ones that are for ‘tobacco use only’. Yeah, those are the one we’re talking about.
Next, is the blunt. Blunts are cannabis wrapped in tobacco leaf. This is similar to the mixing of tobacco and cannabis into a spliff that is smoked mostly in Europe.
The most common way to vape cannabis today is with one of the many different cartridges. You screw them onto any 510 tread battery. Hit the button and rip away. They don’t smell as bad the traditional joint. Hand help vapes are so common now as well that know one in public will look at you sideways for taking your medicine.
The more traditional form of vaping cannabis is with a table top vape of some sort. There are ‘whip vape’ and ‘bag vape.’ The whip vape is normally a box with a heating element and a hose with a mouth piece. The bag vape you might have seen in a movie. A bag is put on the vape a fan is run that blows the cannabis vapor into the special bag. When the bag is full its removed and you can vape your heart out.
There are many many different kinds of edibles. The most thought of edible is the ‘pot brownie’. While wonderful and nostalgic it was only the starting point. Today we are blessed to have more than just brownies. There are tinctures. Tinctures are concentrated liquid form of cannabis. That can be easily ingested or mixed in with any beverage. There are capsules or cannabis pills. The most important thing to remember about cannabis edibles is they have a onset time. Wait at least 90 minutes after consuming a edible to take another. You don’t know how many people have said “It’s not working. Im going to take another.” Then within five to ten minutes the first dose kicks in and they are floored. Now waiting for the second dose to hit. The moral of the story is to know your limits.
Honestly, if you can imagine it you can put cannabis in it. There is even a High Times cannabis cookbook.
Get creative and add your medicine to what ever you see fit.
