Growing Marijuana Information

With a decision to start growing marijuana or growing your own medical marijuana garden there are important facts that you must follow before you get started. First, one of the most important things that you must do is have permission to grow in your town and be a licensed medical marijuana patient.

There are different laws around the world for marijuana cultivation so find out what you have to do to be legal in your area. Also make sure that you are growing only the amount of plants that is required by law, if all medical marijuana growers follow the law there is a better chance that one day this beautiful herb will be legal for medical patients around the world.

When starting you own medical garden whether it be indoors or outdoors it’s a good idea to find a good grow store or hydroponic store in your area. When starting your garden there are a list of materials that you must acquire to get started. Also locate a welding store in your area to find out how to purchase co2 tanks if growing indoors, co2 plays a big part in potent medical marijuana.

Some of the basic supplies that are a must when you grow marijuana, and it consists of :

Good Soil – good soil is a must when growing marijuana, I use an organic mix with my seedlings and clones that has enough nutrients to feed the plant up to 30 days then I transplant the plant in to a bigger container and switch to an organic soil less medium that is made up of different components such as moss and peat which contains no nutrients so I can add in my own.

Proper Nutrients – a plant must eat, just as you do, to thrive an stay alive especially when the plants are in the budding stage. Do some research and find a good nutrient base for the vegetative stage as well as the flowering stage. You can find marijuana nutrients online or at your local hydroponic store.

Plastics Containers- In a marijuana plants life it will be transplanted 3 times. It will start in a small plastic cup whether started from seed or clone for 20-30 day to build the root structure, then it will be transplanted into a 1 gallon plastic pot/container for another 20-30 days to build the root structure even more. The bigger the roots the bigger the fruits! After the 30 days your plant will then make its journey to a 5–20 gallon pot/container to finish out its life cycle.

LED Grow Lights – if growing indoors it’s a must that you purchase good lights that can put off enough lumen to grow big beautiful buds.

Circular Fans- it’s good to have multiple fans in your grow room to keep the fresh air circulating and help keep the temperature in the room from getting too hot.

Timers- wall timers are used for the lights in the different growth stages, when the plants are in the vegetative stage the timers need to be set to turn the lights on for 18 hrs and shut the lights off for 6 and in the flowering stage the timers are set to go on for 12 hrs and go off for 12 hrs imitating the short days of autumn to induce flowering.

Temperature and Humidity Gauge- in the grow room it’s important to keep the temperature and the humidity at a steady number. When the plants are in the vegetative stage the humidity can be higher like 50%-75% but when in the flowering room we don’t want mold to grow on the buds so we keep the humidity around 30%. The temperature in both rooms should always be between 75-80 degrees, if the temperature fluctuates too much the plant will be effected.

There is a quick list of some things that are needed when starting your own medical garden. There are a lot of other very important factors that come in to play when growing your own medicine that’s why its important to do your research and find out all the ins and outs on growing marijuana.

How Do I Grow Weed Indoors?

Many medical marijuana patients and growers for the patients ask the question, “How do I grow weed indoors?” They ask this question because, not all states have dispensaries where medical weed is legal.  It is safer to grow weed inside of your own home, than it is buying on the streets.  Buying weed on the streets is illegal and if you do purchase a bag of weed the quality will always be questionable.  So, why not just grow weed indoors, you will always have your supply that will be the same quality every time.

You need to start off by figuring out which type of strain will be most beneficial to you.  You can have Sativas, Indicas or even Hybrids, each one will give you a different high.  Sativas tend to have lower THC in weed, however, they can give you that uplifting feeling of energy.  These are great strains for smoking during the day, so you can complete all of your tasks for the day.  Indicas tend to have higher levels of THC, and are better smoked in the evening because some will give you the couch-lock high and will even help you fall asleep.

There are many different methods of growing weed, so you have to decide if you want to grow it in soil, hydroponics or even aquaponics (using fish poo to feed the plants).  It might be easiest to just start off growing in soil with fertilizer already mixed in.  Hydroponics is more advanced, however the yield and quality can be like nothing you have smoked before.  Aquponics is nice because you use your home fish tank with fish to pump the nitrogen rich water into you growing bed for the plants.  Aquaponics is a natural auto-pilot method of feeding your cannabis.

Is It Legal To Grow Marijuana In The USA?

Medical marijuana is one of the fastest growing industries in the US. This is due to the fact that physicians believe that marijuana has healing properties and can be used for medicinal purposes. Although almost 14 states in the US can make use of marijuana legally, possessing marijuana is still a criminal offense under the federal law. Apart from these 14 states, marijuana is not yet legal in the rest of the states of the United States of America. Since marijuana has a number of healing properties and can help victims suffering from AIDS, cancer, arthritis, glaucoma and so on, a large number of people are trying to find out how to grow marijuana legally.

In those states where marijuana has been made legal, there are still restrictions as to how much a person can possess and how many plants he can grow. If you are looking for information on how to grow marijuana legally, then you must also find out information on what the current state laws are and the requirements that you need to meet to be able to grow marijuana legally. There are different laws set out by the different states which have made the use of marijuana legal in their states. The 14 states where marijuana can be grown legally in the US include Alaska, California, Hawaii, Colorado, Maine, Montana, Michigan, New Jersey, Nevada, Oregon, New Mexico, Washington, Vermont and Rhode Island.

Although there are different laws in each of the 14 states, you need to be a patient suffering from a debilitating medical condition to be able to acquire a license to possess marijuana for medicinal purposes. Moreover, you will need to prove this with a written recommendation from a physician and complete a form which you will need to send to the Registry office before they grant you permission to use the substance legally.

Why I grow medical marijuana?

I have been in the medical profession for two decades.

I have seen, first hand how prescription drugs can be misused and abused by people from all walks of life. This can result in dependency/addiction, rebound/withdrawal symptoms, and many times even fatal overdoses. I have also seen how ineffective pharmaceutical “medicines” can be, many times requiring additional “medicines” to cope with the side effects of the initial “medicines.”  Note how I quote that term – “medicines.”  If you detect a note of sarcasm, then you are both perceptive and correct.  I too used to think that marijuana was just a recreational drug, just a phase you went through, or just “something you did in your teenage years,” then outgrew.

But when a family member started suffering from severe and agonizing health problems, I learned a lot that really opened my eyes. The one thing that helped them through the pain and depression of their illness was marijuana. When they were medicated with it was the only time that they truly felt comfortable at all, could eat, or felt happy.  However, guilt over doing something illegal (as absurd as that law is) also loomed over them, with the constant threat of losing their job, their livelihood, and even their freedom.  So they decided to forego using marijuana, trusted their physician and the “medicines” that they were prescribed by them, and began taking what they were prescribed.  They experienced much less-than-satisfactory results from these “medicines,” especially when compared to the results they knew they got from marijuana when they were using it.  The side effects of some of the “medicines” included increased suicidal thoughts/tendencies, their emotional well-being suffered, and the pain was not controlled anywhere close to what marijuana had offered. After a few weeks of experiencing the results (or lack of results) of modern “medicine,” they tragically took their life.

This loss was very hard on our family.

While they were alive, they talked with me often about the value of marijuana, recommended I watch some educational films/shows about it, and encouraged me to read about it.  I watched a couple of the things they recommended while they were still alive.  But after they died, I dove in head first, learning all I could about this truly amazing plant.

What I learned intrigued me, amazed me, and especially angered me.  I could not believe that my government was so unwilling to legalize a simple plant that is so beneficial in so many, many ways.  The more I thought on this, and the more that I thought on the loss our family suffered (that marijuana had successfully staved off for years), the more I began to adopt a mindset of wanting to “do what I know to be best” rather than “do what my government says it wants” out of greed and corruption.  I am not trying to preach to anyone, but what it comes down to is I live in a country that has said it is legal to drink alcohol as much as you want (which causes great domestic problems, DUI deaths), smoke cigarettes as much as you want (that kill almost half a million in my nation annually), take any assortment of prescription meds from however many doctors you can con them out of (that can kill you), even kill an unborn child — all legally.

Yet a plant, a God-made plant that is so beneficial and has been throughout history, that is not legal.  I do not agree.  You see, man has an innate knowledge of right and wrong, and most things that are illegal are also wrong to him personally, such as murder, rape, stealing, hurting or endangering another person, etc.  Even most people who may do those things realize they are wrong.  Most cultures throughout history have acknowledged those as wrong and I feel the same.  But nothing inside me makes me feel at all that a plant should be illegal, especially a beneficial one that cannot be used to poison thousands of people or anything terrorist-like or harmful.

I realized that most of the “medicines” that members of my family were taking (pain pills, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, nausea medication, antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication) were not only ineffective and necessitating other meds sometimes, but could A-L-L be substituted for with a much superior and God-made medicine, a simple plant that was free and unlimited.  I then saw, outside our family, how folks were coping with illnesses like ALS, seizures, and other illnesses that can be helped with medical marijuana.  No dangerous side effects, no withdrawal symptoms, no dependency issues, no potential for fatal overdose, no doctor’s opinion or prescription required, and no refill limit.  I realized that even though I have seen deaths from virtually every type of “medicine” in use over the years, along with many from tobacco, alcohol, and the “hard” illegal drugs, I have never ever seen a death from marijuana.  I have never even seen a domestic abuse case involving marijuana.

I only thought about it seriously for a couple of days before discussing it with my wife.  She was reluctant at first, but also realized the overwhelming validity of what I was saying and the truth about the pharmaceutical industry (the largest industry in the world, with 2 lobbyists in Washington DC for every 1 politician there)

….. So I started reading about how to do it and buying the necessary equipment.  I have only started, so we have not yet realized the benefits of the first harvest.  But I know that they will be tremendous.  And no, I am not growing marijuana for me to use or get high from.  Although I do not think there is any harm in it and would probably enjoy it, for me to remain gainfully employed it is too large of a risk to take.

So that is where I am, and that is why I am growing medical marijuana.  I encourage you to also investigate and educate yourself on this amazing plant, not just medicinally, but for the multitude of uses hemp has.

Don’t just do like I did and mindlessly assume that if it is illegal there are valid reasons.  Don’t believe what other people tell you, including myself, but find out for yourself what the truth is (listening to all sides).  Don’t listen to the propaganda that has been force-fed to us since the 30′s, listen to your inner voice of reason.  If you are fortunate enough to live in an area where marijuana is voted on in any way, please make your voice heard.  If you serve on a jury and the charge is marijuana possession, cast your vote with your heart and your conscience to send a message.  Let’s stop imprisoning people for owning a plant.

Pharmaceutical companies and the multitude of privatized prisons (yes it is an industry) stand to lose a lot of money — that is why marijuana is illegal.

Medical Marijuana Myths and Facts

A herb used as a drug, marijuana is also known as cannabis. Two forms of marijuana, herbal and the resinous, are used in the preparation of the drug. Hashish is the resinous form of marijuana. Sub-tending leaves and flowers of the plant are used in preparing the drug. The plant contains a chemical compound, tetrahydrocannabinol, which is used for medicinal purposes.

Marijuana Myths and Facts

There are many myths surrounding the effects caused by marijuana. Some of them are discussed below.

Myth#1: It is said that the intake of marijuana leads to permanent mental illness. Even small amounts of the drug are capable of causing psychological damage in children.
Fact: Marijuana intake sometimes results into anxiety, panic and paranoia; however, it doesn’t cause permanent mental damage. If marijuana is eaten directly, chances are, that the person temporarily suffers from toxic psychosis.

Myth#2: The drug is considered highly addictive. People who use marijuana, face severe withdrawal symptoms.
Fact: According to the facts recorded in the US, not even 1% Americans are addicted to marijuana. Even those who use heavy doses of the drug, don’t face any kind of withdrawal symptoms.

Myth#3: The marijuana that is available today, is more potent than that of the ’60s decade. The drug has become more dangerous over time.
Fact: The drug hasn’t undergone any changes in its properties, as is presented by some people. The samples seized by the Drug Enforcement Administration do not represent the marijuana that is generally used by people.

Myth#4: The offenders who violate the laws regarding the usage of marijuana are not arrested. Strict action is not taken against them.
Fact: Contrary to the belief that violators of marijuana are not punished, the truth is that around 86% of the offenders were arrested for illegal possession of the drug. Thousands of people have served the punishment for the offense.

Myth#5: Marijuana is considered the cause behind diseases such as lung cancer, emphysema and bronchitis.
Fact: The above argument doesn’t hold much truth behind it. Marijuana smoking is not frequent even among regular smokers in comparison with those who smoke tobacco products. Marijuana intake doesn’t play any role in the development of lung cancer. The fact was supported by a paper presented to the American Thoracic Society in the year 2006.

Myth#6: Cannabis contains tetrahydrocannabinol, a psychoactive substance used for medicinal purpose. It is said that drugs that are more effective in action than marijuana, are available in the market.
Fact: Even today, marijuana is used in the treatment of various problems. The drug is used to reduce nausea, that results from chemotherapy. It is also used to reduce the spasticity in muscles in patients suffering from various neurological disorders.

Myth#7: Cannabis is considered a ‘gateway’ drug i.e. the drug is believed to induce the intake of potent and dangerous drugs such as cocaine, LSD and heroin.
Fact: The myth that marijuana is a gateway drug, is based on a fragile assumption and statistical association between the usage of common and uncommon drugs. The facts state that many of them who use marijuana, have never consumed any of the illegal drugs.

Myth#8: It is believed that the intake of marijuana induces apathetic behavior and makes people passive in their approach. People tend to lose their productivity in work and students perform badly in studies.
Fact: Even after many years of research, scientists have failed to understand the relation between marijuana and the apathetic behavior in people. Thus, the drug has nothing to do with the productivity of employees or the grades of students.

Misconceptions prevent us from understanding the truth behind many things. Myths develop as a result of apathy and ignorance. Thus, it is important to remain vigilant and understand the true picture behind any given fact.
