Plain Jane Hemp Cigarettes

The other day I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and say a sponsored ad for CBD hemp cigarettes. I thought wow this is cool. Must be legal now because of the farm bill that passed.

So I ordered a back of 8 for the discounted prices of 10.99 USD. The pack comes with matches and a striker on the bottom of the pack.

It took about 3-5 days for them to arrive.

When they did I lit one up and tried it. Didn’t taste like anything really. I noticed a small anxiety changed from it.

I did notice that the website says each hemp cigarette is 50mg CBD but the package said each one was 60mg CBD. Could just be a typo.

All in all good product. Would buy again at the discounted price of 10.99 USD.

Growing in Soil: A brief overview

Soil, This is where most people start. It is what they are most familiar with. Everyone has seen or handled garden soil. It it a peat moss base with additives and usually some perlite.

We recommend using a organic soil like Fox Farms or Roots organic. These can be found at your local hydro store, ace hardware and in some states I’ve even heard Walmart has Fox Farms products. Point being these are quality products that are fairly easy to find.

Soil is great for many reasons. It does not have to watered every day. Less or no liquid nutrients are required with soil. The plants can and need to go days between watering. The cherry on top is liquid nutrients only need to be used every 2-3 waterings. This means less water usage, less nutrient usage, more time tending to your plants and more money in your pocket.

The primary draw back of soil however is over watering and yield. One of the most common mistakes new growers make is too much water or watering too frequently. The yield with soil tends to be lower then the yield with soilless or hydroponics.

Soil is a great medium indoor and the only medium I would use outdoors. It’s very forgiving to the grower.

Soil is the best medium to grow organically. When using the soil food web you maximize the potential of the plant by mimicking what happens in nature. If you want to learn more about the soil food web then check out the book Teaming with Microbes.

This has been a brief overview of soil. Check back with us later as we dive a little deeper into soil, organics, and super soil.

Farm bill

On May 18th, 2018 the $867 billion farm bill failed in the House of Representatives with a vote of 198 yea to 213 nay. All Democrats and 30 Republicans voted against the measure.

The bill “largely continues current farm and nutrition policy”, and does not include new requirements for SNAP (food stamps) recipients. Incorporating some of the text of the Hemp Farming Act of 2018, the farm bill descheduled some cannabis products from the Controlled Substances Act for the first time. One estimate put the U.S. CBD market at $2.3 billion to $23 billion by the 2020s, enabled by the 2018 farm bill. U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell was such a proponent of the hemp provision that American Military News reported that McConnell coined the hashtag #HempFarmBill

Additional revenue to farmers and processors is expected from textiles and other hemp products. The Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act of 2018 was passed as part of the bill.
