Growing Medical Cannabis

Medical Cannabis

More and more states in the United States are now allowing for the cultivation and use, for growing medical cannabis. Pro medical marijuana and health organizations support use of medical-marijuana strains as prescribed or directed by a doctor, like the American College-of Physicians. There are a number of areas in the world today where use of cannabis is legal (like Netherlands) and semi legal (like the United States – legal on state level in certain states, but illegal-on a Federal-level). If you have a doctor’s prescription for medical-marijuana but can’t find any good dispensaries, and growing of cannabis is legal/semi-legal in your country or state, you may alternatively grow your own.

Steps on how to grow cannabis

Get a doctor’s prescription and make sure your state has medical marijuana laws that are semi-legal.

Seeds

Choose your seeds according to a medical condition being addressed. For example, the Indica-strain is a relaxant, which is typically used in relieving the symptoms-of multiple sclerosis, tremors, muscle spasms, mobility issues, and pain-management while the Sativa-strain is a stimulant, best for appetite stimulation, pain, migraines, nausea, and also commonly used by HIV AIDS and cancer-patients, however it takes long to mature.

Location

Find a place/location with enough lighting. Whether outdoors or greenhouse, at least six hours of natural sunlight are required. If indoors ensure that your plants’ leaves are strongly lit and are receiving enough sunlight. You’ll require a high-pressure sodium bulb for initial growth, and maybe a different duration of lighting cycle: 18/6 for vegetation and 12/12 for flowering stages.

Germinate

Germinate your seeds. There are several ways of doing this. 1 way is to fill up a cup up with warm-water and drop your seeds in it. Keep the seeds in a dark-place for about one to three days. When you see a white-root popping out, it is time to plant your seeds.

Naturally/Organically

Decide if the seeds should be grown naturally/organically or using the chemical fertilizers. The herb will be smoked, meaning it may be much healthier to use only natural ingredients. Some chemicals may give your bud an undesirable and bad chemical-taste, though they may be much cheaper and rather easier to dose the plants accurately.

Soil

Plant the seeds in starter soil in-a small pot. The seeds should be sprouted in starter-soil or unfertilized-soil, as fertilized-soil may hurt your young plant. A seed carries with it its own supply of nutrients-for the initial growth. Pure pea-moss or very lightly-fertilized pea-moss can be used.

Water

Water the soil well and then make or bore a hole about half in. into the prepared soil and drop the seed in that hole with its root facing tip-pointing up; the root will look for the heat-of the soil surface, get close, and then turn downwards and pull the opening-leaves above the soil-surface.

Cover

Cover your seeds and keep the soil-moist until the baby plants appear and begin to grow. Let the plants grow in the pots for about 2 weeks. Provide the plants with 18-24 hours of lighting per day. If you are using artificial lighting, use fluorescent-lights. Don’t use the more powerful types-of grow lights. Don’t let the plants get too cold or too hot, 70-75F should be enough. Provide adequate moving fresh air with a fan.

Transplant

Prepare the fertilized-soil in a larger-pot. Take a 5-gallon plant pot and then clean it thoroughly. 1st fill the bottom of that pot with peat-moss to about 1 inch. This will help the sewage which the plants give off drain well. Fill the pot-to the top with fine potting soil. Best use an organic-soil blend like VermiT fire. Avoid Miracle Grow products.
Transfer your young plants. Dig holes in the now large well prepared pots and then carefully move your young plants from the small pots. Gently place them in the holes and gently fill-in the holes, be careful not to overly-compact the soil. Water the plants, but don’t over water.

Watch them grow

Marijuana Stems

Understanding the facts

Understanding the facts about marijuana stems and the effects they could have on
you when you don’t just throw them away.

Will stems get

Will stems get you high if you smoke them? Probably not and it’s not just the
same as puffing on the weed. You could try eating marijuana stems,
chewing marijuana stems or making marijuana stem tea.If so, were you successful at it?

First smoking

First, smoking them is not a good idea. First of all, they don’t burn properly and there
will be a good chance that you will get a headache, plus the smell is like bad
incest .

Get high

Do they get you high, not really? There doesn’t appear to be enough TCH in them to give you
a good buzz, at least not like alcohol can or puffing on the
real thing. And there is always the chance of being stopped for a drug test and
being arrested; depending upon what state you are in.

Marijuana stem tea

Why not just make some marijuana stem tea.
This will mean that cooking with them is defiantly a little different If
you do cook them make sure there are no seeds because they can pop like
popcorn. And again, you should bring some honey because it may taste a
little bitter. So having tea in my summer is just different way of using my
weed stems and not smoking weed will keep me free of any drug test. And no it
probably will not make you sterile.

Think about

Think about these reasons and how they apply to your situation. In conclusion I suggest that
you just throw them away.

Hemp Oil

Buying Hemp

When it comes to buying hemp there is a diverse range of interesting products available. It is not without good reason that up until recent time’s hemp was an important agricultural crop. After all, it was only pressure from the pharmaceutical and paper industries that led to its prohibition.

THC

When we talk about hemp we should not get confused with marijuana or pot. The actual amount of the psychoactive substance THC found in a typical hemp plant is minute. You would not be able to get high from smoking a hemp plant but you can receive a range of health benefits by consuming hemp oil.

Hemp Oil

It was not until fairly recently that serious research was done into the medicinal effects of hemp oil, though it has been used as a traditional part of Chinese and Indian medicine for millennia. Today it is once again in the news as more people are discovering how it can help them.

omega 3 and omega 6

The oil is loaded with essential fatty acids such as omega 3 and omega 6 as well as unsaturated fats. Essential fatty acids are fundamental for maintaining a healthy body. It also contains various minerals, vitamins, and protein. It makes a wonderful dietary supplement. As much as thirty five per cent of the weight of a typical seed is actually oil.

Immune System

It has also been discovered that the oil is a very effective treatment for burns and other skin conditions. Another interesting benefit is that if taken regularly, the oil can strengthen the immune system. Menstrual problems, indigestion, anorexia, infection, asthma, high cholesterol, hypertension, and inflammatory conditions such as glaucoma and arthritis can all be reduced by the correct intake of hemp oil.

If you are to place an order online just make sure that the laws and regulations in your country allow you to do so. Buying hemp is very different than pot this should not be a problem.

Hemp Omega

 

What are Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids?

 Why do people need Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids?

There are many kinds of fats, but only two kinds of essential fats: Omega 3 (n-3 or w3) and omega 6 (n-6 or w6), both of which are unsaturated fats.

Each EFA is turned into several derivatives by the body. All other fats, such as Omega 9 (monounsaturated), Omega 7, and saturated fat, are non-essentials as the body produces them from sugars and starches.

Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids are necessary for survival. The problem is that the human organism cannot manufacture them or refine them from any other part of the diet, making it necessary to get EFA’s from an outside food source.

Why do people need Omega 3 & 6 Fatty Acids?

Hemp Oil Seed

Hemp Oil Seeds are an excellent source, for the Omegas

 

Hemp Protein

                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Hemp protein benefits are many and are a
good alternative to whey based supplements, especially if you are vegan.
Organic hemp protein powder will give you all the protein you need without the
whey. During my hemp protein review I discovered that it was commonly used in
ancient times as a meal source. Just a small amount of hemp seed would provide
a person all the nutrition they would need to survive for a month.

In this plant, you get protein including albumin and globulin together with
high levels of essential fatty acids and essential amino acids, dietary
insoluble fiber which can reduce food cravings and improve circulation. Thirty
grams of this contains 8 grams of fiber together with antioxidants, vitamins,
minerals and chlorophyll while delivering no sugar, or cholesterol.

Hemp seed is a very versatile plant that can be used for making twine, clothes,
fuel and food. Plus there aren’t any known allergies from buying hemp. The
seeds are pulverized into a powder from the hemp oil seed plants.

The hemp powder is in the same cannabis
family as marijuana, but it isn’t hallucinogenic or addictive. However there is
a downside for using hemp protein bodybuilding and that is the cost and taste.
On the cost you are on your own but as for the taste I just mix it with some
fruit juice or my old standby honey

Blueberry Marijuana

Blueberry Marijuana

Blueberry Marijuana is a very stable cannabis strain, and is one of the
greatest indoor pot seeds known to man. This plant weed has a tendency
to resemble blueberries when fully grown and will turn blue or purple as
opposed to green. The finished cure color of this bud actually looks more
like lavender blue. The dealer will usually roll them in a blueberry flavored
wrapping paper, hence the name blueberry joint. And when you smoke it the
very fruity aroma and taste of blueberry is present hence the name. I would
like to mention that there is more than one strain of this best marijuana including
such names as blackberry, strawberry, raspberry and cranberry.

In doors or outside

While blueberry is a sativa/ indica mix, it is mostly considered an indica
cross. This strain does just as well in doors or outside, just make sure
you buy from a reputable source. This variety is somewhat easy to grow, within
a 60-70 day cycle the leaves will turn mature. How to grow it
indoors, just try and keep the temperature at 70 degrees or just below
which will help make the end product, a more lovely shade of purple and finally
blue. The growth is of a medium height with full branching in the lower limbs
with dark leaves and stems. Growing outdoors you might want to add some organic
fertilizer.

High in THC

This strain has a high of the highest levels in THC and will produce a
notable and pleasantly long lasting buzz of the highest quality and it probably
will make you forget where you are going for awhile. It smokes very smooth, no
headaches or munchies needed. However choose your smoking location wisely,
because the aroma will alert everyone that the smoking lamp is on. It has
become very popular since 2000, plus it has a long shelf life.

Medical Marijuana

It is one of the most widely used medical marijuana strains, due to its
abundant medical properties. Some of the medical areas of interest are for
chronic pain, muscle spasm, insomnia, aids, depression disorder and relive of
pain from cancer. The state of California legally allows it with a
prescription from dispensaries.

Hemp Milk

Hemp Milk seems to be the new kid on the block. It’s a delicious non-dairy beverage depending on your taste buds, and it can be found in the grocery & gourmet food section of your favorite health store. You can know add this to the list of non-dairy alternatives and one of nature’s most perfect, planet-friendly foods. This delicious non-dairy beverage made from hemp seeds. Some customer reviews have called this organic milk, marijuana milk, or even pot juice, but in any case you will not get a buzz on.

It’s not that hard to make one of nature’s most perfect foods, by using these seeds. By making it yourself, you will definitely save money. Combine the seed of the hemp plant with water and put into a blender. This hemp milk is a delicious alternative to soy with a creamy texture and slightly nutty taste. Now if you can’t tolerate the taste doesn’t worry just add a little honey to it? And don’t worry because it will not make you loopy or dopy, just enjoy. A good way to use your organic friend is for your cereal or coffee, chip dip, yogurt, or my favorite is making ice cream. However I do believe everybody’s all time favorite is to put the ‘smooth’ in your favorite fruit smoothie.

Though organic hemp milk is made from the pulverized seeds of the same family of plants that alter the brain and consciousness, the seeds have no psychoactive power. The one concern that people could have about it is that it might contain some of the chemical THC, which is in marijuana. But test have shown that the ingredient is not present.

Be Dairy Free

This milk product is probably the most nutritious alternative to dairy. The hemp seed is nutritionally packed with protein, vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids; it also has omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. This milk can help make you healthy and people don’t seem to be allergic to it. Hemp seeds are one of the plant kingdom’s best sources of easily digestible foods and it’s alkaline just like any other kind of milk. You can find hemp milk which provides these same benefits while at the time being dairy free. It’s a great alternative for people who are allergic to soy or are vegetarian.

 

Easily Digestible

The plants, used to make hemp, are grown as a food source in many countries, and also in parts of the U.S. The seeds are similar to sunflower seeds. Hemp is a great plant source for; protein, fiber and many other nutrients. Plus it’s very easily digestible. The milk is just starting to be sold recently, you can buy it in three different choices:original, original-unsweetened, vanilla, unsweetened-vanilla & chocolate from a few health stores thru out the country. Mostly likely if you don’t make it yourself you will have to buy online. Some will ship free if purchased in containers (pack of 12).
