Outdoor Space Options For Cannabis Cultivation

By |abe||e April 2, 2015 233 Views No comments
Are you planning to start an outdoor cannabis garden? If you are, then you should look into the following grow site options.

Marijuana Cultivation – The Facts

1. The backyard is an ideal outdoor space to setup a cannabis garden.  A backyard is able to provide your plants many important things that are needed for their maximum growth and development.

You have to get the soil tested to determine if it is suitable to grow marijuana. It is also important to clean up the area and check for any mold growth or insect infestations before you start planting the cannabis seeds.

2. A terrace can also be transformed into an outdoor cannabis garden. It can provide you privacy since it is high up on the ground, and passersby would not immediately notice the plants.

3. The rooftop is another good option for a cannabis grow space. Just like the terrace, it can offer privacy. But, the plants will be exposed to higher temperature and stronger winds, so be ready to deal with that if problems arise.

4. If you have a greenhouse, the experience will be like growing marijuana outdoors and indoors at the same time. A greenhouse can provide protection to your plants from very strong rains and winds. It can also serve as a shield from attacks of insects and other animals. However, building a greenhouse may be quite costly, so you have to make sure first that you have enough money for it.

What is Marijuana? - Information And Facts

By |abe||e March 31, 2015 155 Views No comments

Marijuana is derived from the Cannabis plant, Cannabis sativa. Its active ingredient found in the resin of the cannabis plant called delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is responsible for the drugs psycho-altering effects. 

        
Marijuana use is prevalent and persisting because of the drug’s accessibility in the black market. Individuals across the lifespan are drawn to this “getaway drug” as this gives them an avenue to escape their problems and fears, providing them an opportunity to escape to a new level of elated high. Marijuana users are only after the high they get from consuming the drug, what they fail to expect is the mental health risk that goes along with it.

Raw Cannabis: Healthy and Good For You


Mental Effects of Marijuana

      
Marijuana users smoke marijuana through cigarettes or pipes. Marijuana smoke travels rapidly into the lungs to the bloodstream, creating a havoc of disturbance in the body’s homeostasis. Recent studies on THC levels on marijuana showed that it is 400 times more potent in eliciting “mind altering” effects than it was a decade ago.


        
As marijuana smoke travels in the circulatory system (blood) to the nervous system (brain), it renders the user a series of short term effects that usually lasts up to 8-12 hours. These effects are often characterized by hallucinations and delusions, paranoia and increased anxiety. When THC reaches the brain, it disturbs mental function by sending mixed signals to body systems. It alters cognition and comprehension; delays body reflexes and impairs motor coordination. 



What can you do?

      
Family members have seen their loved ones get eaten up by the intoxicating vibe of marijuana. More often than not, they give up trying to intervene and break the cycle of marijuana drug abuse because they perceive that the user has gone too far out already. It is the responsibility of family members and friends to rally against the deteriorating cascade that this drug has doled upon its users. Support facilities are available and accessible to help marijuana abusers to withdraw and recover from marijuana addiction. The process of addiction can be brought to a halt when caring family members of marijuana users slowly assist them in finding within themselves the desire to stop using marijuana.
