The Ultimate Marijuana FAQ: Everything A Beginner Needs to Know About Weed

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Heres the difference: The marketplace, and law enforcement, use words like marijuana and cannabis to refer to plants bred or naturally high in psychoactive cannabinoids like THC.
  • When we say hemp,in crude terms, were talking about cannabisthatslow in psychoactive cannabinoids and specifically raised for the use of its seeds or stalks for food, fiber or fuel.
  • Turns out that the compounds in the cannabis plant turn on this systemand that our bodies produce similar compounds that also activate these receptors.
  • Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is only one of the many active compounds in the cannabis plantbut you wont find any THC in a raw cannabis plant.
  • All you need to know is that your body produces compounds that activate the same receptors activated by the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plantonce they are heated up.

Rise in cannabis strength may not affect rates of schizophrenia, new study suggests

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • The question that polarises researchers is whether smoking cannabis is associated with a risk of developing psychotic problems, such as schizophrenia, in the long term.
  • Other studies suggest that, compared with healthy controls, people with schizophrenia have more psychotic-like experiences when they use cannabis.
  • And those at higher risk of schizophrenia that is, people with genetic or psychological risk factors for the disease tend to have more psychotic-like experiences.
  • If these are the people who are stopping using cannabis, they may offset their risk of developing schizophrenia from cannabis use.
  • The best study to confirm the hypothesis would be a long-term study mapping cannabis experiences to schizophrenia risk, drawn from the general population, but this would be a long and expensive study to do.

  • Results showed that laws that let people use marijuana to treat specific medical conditions were associated with about a 6 per cent lower rate of opioid prescribing for pain.
  • That suggest the medical marijuana laws didn’t reach some people who could benefit from using marijuana instead of opioids, said Hefei Wen of the University of Kentucky in Lexington, one of the study authors.
  • Researchers found that Medicare patients in states with marijuana dispensaries filled prescriptions for about 14 percent fewer daily doses of opioids than those in other states.
  • W. David Bradford, an economist at the University of Georgia in Athens who’s an author of the second study, said the results add to other findings that suggest to experts that marijuana is a viable alternative to opioids.
  • They called for states and the federal government to pay for more studies to clarify the effect of marijuana use on opioid use, saying such research is needed for science to guide policy-making.

  • Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale has also said officials are examining all the legal implications for possible pardons, or record suspensions, for criminal records for cannabis.

The Big Grow Debate: Which Is Better, Indoor or Outdoor Pot?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Its almost unfair to put outdoor and indoor cannabis growing in the same category: Outdoor grows rely on Mother Nature to control the most important variables, while indoor-gardening techniques will allow you to control the same factors with ease.
  • These indoor growers quickly improved their techniques and green bud was born, creating the new standard of cannabis that we know today.
  • Outdoor cannabis is better because the suns natural light spectrum produces more cannabinoids and terpenes, increasing the plants flavor and potencythe two qualities every cannabis aficionado values.
  • A Washington Statecertified lab compared 2,700 samples and found that sun-grown cannabis was at least 1 percent higher in THC than indoor plants; likewise, terpene response is best under the sun.
  • At the same time, light-deprivation techniques allow growers to reduce the amount of light that the plants receive to 12 hours per day in order to induce the flowering stage during summer.

  • In a move that should ease anxiety among those in the cannabis industry, the new federal spending bill includes medical marijuana protections.
  • Under it, U.S. law enforcement agents and prosecutors are barred from spending federal money to hinder state medical marijuana programs.
  • We are concerned about the Department of Justice enforcing federal marijuana law in a way that blocks implementation of marijuana reform laws in those states that have passed such reforms, they wrote.
  • The issue at hand is whether the federal governments marijuana policy violates the principles of federalism and the Tenth Amendment.

  • Studies concluded that weed helps improve insulin control and regulates body weight, which explains why stoners dont become obese from all that snacking.
  • So you can have a rebound of not eating for a long period of time after you have the munchies, explained Dr. Tamas Horvath, professor of neurobiology and comparative medicine at Yale University, who has undertaken a number of studies on munchies and cancer patients.
  • In other words, after an initial bout of the munchies, there is a tendency to go a long time without eating, which keeps the weight under control.
  • In fact, Horvath said there is no association between marijuana use and obesity in any of the existing scientific literature.

  • The question that polarises researchers is whether smoking cannabis is associated with a risk of developing psychotic problems, such as schizophrenia, in the long term.
  • Other studies suggest that, compared with healthy controls, people with schizophrenia have more psychotic-like experiences when they use cannabis.
  • And those at higher risk of schizophrenia that is, people with genetic or psychological risk factors for the disease tend to have more psychotic-like experiences.
  • If these are the people who are stopping using cannabis, they may offset their risk of developing schizophrenia from cannabis use.
  • The best study to confirm the hypothesis would be a long-term study mapping cannabis experiences to schizophrenia risk, drawn from the general population, but this would be a long and expensive study to do.

  • Mr. Mastrangelo, 80, said he had not heard many complaints from local residents about his citys new business.
  • Even so, Mr. Faison said the new industry would be a shot in the arm for rural Cocke County, where more than 24 percent of residents live in poverty and where the illicit cultivation of marijuana has, along with moonshine making, been a historic and notorious fact of economic life….
  • Last month, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission announced that Bold Team, the company that wants to set up shop in Cotton Plant, was among the companies that would be granted a growing license.

  • Our Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, is a republican that took the public by surprise when he announced a bill known as The Hemp Farming Act of 2018.
  • A bill as important as this would have a huge impact on the current restrictions and regulations on hemp.
  • It would also enable researchers of hemp to apply for grants through the Department of Agriculture, as hemp would be treated as a regular product.
  • The bill is receiving a decent amount of support because McConnell announced this bill with another Republican Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner that goes by the name of Ryan Quarles.
  • A pilot program is already being conducted as we speak, and it is through the Department of Agriculture to grow hemp.

  • If you stay on top of this process, youll have plants that look like bonsai bushes, with plenty of bud sites but not a lot of stretching out and big gaps between nodes.
  • If you want to learn how to grow weed, its important to determine how much space you have and to factor in the fact that your plants will stretch for at least a few weeks after flowering is induced.
  • I usually recommend one week per gallon of container, so a plant in a five-gallon bucket should get approximately five weeks of vegetative time.
  • Depending on the flowering time of your strain, determine when you have two weeks or so left and begin the flushing process.
  • Slowly but surely, if you open and close the jars once or twice a day, the moist air will be replenished by dry air and the water thats stuck in the middle of your bud will work its way to the outside and then out into the air altogether.
