How to Manage pH in Marijuana Plant Cultivation Pt. II

July 25, 2014

In last week’s article, we talked about the basic steps involved with getting pH under control in your cannabis garden, which is absolutely necessary for ongoing success. When pH gets out of range, which easily happens, nutrients cannot get to your pot plants, and they get sick, or at the very least, slow down. In a flowering cycle, with each day being an opportunity for more bud mass, you can’t afford to lose a day if you want to harvest top-notch bud. The 3 main factors affecting your pH are your source water, your nutrients, … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

Medical Marijuana Laws Evolve in Southern States

July 23, 2014

MMJ in the South By Ed Namowitz After years of resisting the nationwide trend towards liberalizing marijuana for medical use, some interesting stories have recently begun popping up in the Deep South. Mississippi, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Alabama, and now North Carolina have all passed laws allowing a marijuana extract known as Cannabidiol (CBD) to be used for treating children with certain kinds of seizures. CBD oil is an extract of the hemp plant that does not produce a psychoactive effect like traditional marijuana ingestion does. It is most commonly extracted from legal industrial … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

How to Manage pH in Marijuana Plant Cultivation Pt. I

July 20, 2014

PH management is probably the most complicated aspect of marijuana cultivation, and handling it properly is one major key to growing huge happy buds. Many newbie growers, and even some experienced growers, think growing cannabis is easy because they unwittingly create a plant management system that accidentally handles pH and nutrients in a balanced way. They might then produce a few good harvests, but inevitably, pH problems will pop up and throw their grow systems off balance, stalling and/or sickening the marijuana plants. Only those who understand pH and how to manage it can ongoingly … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

The Evoke Vaporizer Pipe Blends a Classic Look with Modern Technology

July 19, 2014

The Evoke vaporizer from Lotolabs.com is slated to be released this fall and promises to be one of the more exciting new vaporizer pipes to hit the market due to its use of induction heating technology. Most of the popular hand-held vaporizing devices currently on the market are in the form of a pen, whereas the Evoke is an ergonomically shaped pipe with modern lines and wooden overtones. It’s meant more to be sleek and unique rather than small and thin. Physical looks aside, what matters is how well it works. The … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

US Senate Will Vote Soon on Medical Marijuana Interference

July 15, 2014

U.S. Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) have introduced a budget amendment to curb Department of Justice (DOJ) enforcement in medical cannabis states. The bipartisan Senate amendment is similar to a House budget amendment that passed with an historic 219-189 vote last month. If approved by both houses and signed by the President, the amendment will prevent the DOJ from spending any money to interfere in any state’s implementation of medical cannabis laws adopted by voters or the legislatures. This would affect legal patients, their loved ones, and others in … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]


Marijuana Lighting Types

The Basics of Lighting an Indoor Marijuana Garden – Pt II

July 7, 2014

In Part I of this article last week, we told you about some basic lighting terminologies. Now, we’ll continue with more information about different marijuana lighting technologies. *High-intensity Discharge Lamps* Many of the bulbs used in cannabis cultivation fall into the category of high-intensity discharge (HID). There are several types, differentiated by the gas and metal combinations used within the lamps. HID lamps last much longer than regular light bulbs because there is no filament inside them that can break. They require the use of a ballast, connected by a cable, which completes … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

The Basics of Lighting an Indoor Marijuana Garden – Pt I

July 1, 2014

Marijuana Lighting Equipment from grow shops comes along with lots of acronyms, terms and codes that can be confusing for newbies. Here are a few facts to help you get your footing. First, most of us think of a lamp as something you put a bulb into, but in the marijuana lighting industry a lamp IS a bulb. In lighting for pot plant cultivation, you put a “lamp” into a “reflector” or “fixture” instead of putting a bulb into a lamp, like in a living room. When you buy a complete lighting system, you are … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]


THC CO2 Oil

The Race to the World’s Best THC Oil

July 21, 2014

If last month’s San Francisco Bay Area’s Cannabis Cup was anything, it was a dabbing and concentrates expo. Hydroponics was hardly represented while vape pens, dabs, oils, shatters, and waxes were everywhere, with free samples all around. What became quickly clear after visiting a few booths was the gaining popularity of Co2 Oil Extracts over traditional Butane Extracts. Butane has been the solvent of choice due to its low cost and simple extraction methods, but as a solvent, it is fraught with shortcomings. Mainly, due to the “home brewing” casual style of most … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

@NORML We Respect Your Position, But Dabbing is Here to Stay.

June 27, 2014

Last week national NORML Director Keith Stroup came out publicly against the new trend of Hash Oil ‘Dabbing.’ He was concerned about the reputation of marijuana as a harmless drug being undercut by the drug lab reputation that dabbing is starting to have in the media. For those who don’t know, dabbing is a method of ingesting THC oil that typically involves using a hand-sized blow torch on a titanium bowl (that can handle high heat), which is attached to a water pipe. It’s like taking a bong hit of concentrated THC oil, rather than … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]

What are Autoflowering Marijuana Seeds?

June 20, 2014

If you are interested in seeds, you have probably heard about autoflowering cannabis seeds. What is the story on autoflowering seeds? Where did they come from and what are the pros and cons? As usual with marijuana seed breeders, there’s some disagreement and lack of clarity on this topic. What is agreed upon is that autoflowering marijuana seeds came from breeding hemp (cannabis ruderalis) with modern high THC hybrids to select for the best traits among both. Cannabis Ruderalis has the ability to flower without shortening the light cycle to 12/12. It will flower no … [Click on Image or Green Title Above to Read More]
