The Kingdom of Lesotho, African pioneer in therapeutic cannabis

Based in Lesotho, Medigrow (in partnership with Canadian Supreme Cannabis) has invested €17.4 million at its site near the capital Maseru and is building a heliport to transport its “green gold” more quickly and safely, says its chief operating officer, Relebohile Liphoto.

A significant investment, in line with the colossal prospects for the development of the global market for cannabis for medical use. Today estimated at 150 billion dollars (135 billion euros), it could reach 272 billion dollars (248 billion euros) by 2028, according to Barclays Bank’s calculations.

Canna-kingdom since the 16th century

The small African country is called “the Kingdom of Heaven”: it is the only one in the world whose entire land is at an altitude of more than 1400 meters. Also, it benefits from a significant amount of sunshine spread throughout the year and fertile soil. All these are ideal conditions for cannabis cultivation.

In the countryside, the inhabitants did not wait for legalization: for centuries, they have been growing “matekoane,” cannabis in the Sesotho language. “The first historical trace of the presence of’matekoane’ dates back to the 16th century, according to researcher Laurent Laniel of the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction. “The Koenas would have settled in Lesotho around 1550 by buying land for marijuana.” Even today, this crop still provides a significant part of the income of many small farmers.

Shasha owns a maize plantation in the center of the country. Between the cobs, he has been illegally cultivating cannabis for about 20 years. “Vegetables feed my family. Cannabis money is a bonus, it allows me to survive, to pay my children to go to school,” says this farmer, under cover of anonymity. He can count on many smugglers to sell his goods. “Every month, I can go up to 80 kilos across the border with South Africa. It pays between 400 and 500 euros,” he adds.

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) estimates that 70% of cannabis in South Africa comes from the mountains of the “Kingdom of Heaven.” “Marijuana is the third-largest source of income,” says the UN organization.

Priority given to foreign investments

It is a massive opportunity for the country. Struck by unemployment, an AIDS epidemic that affects 23% of its population. With a severe lack of public services, Lesotho is among the poorest countries in the world: it ranks 159th out of 189 in the UN’s human development ranking.

Allowing the cultivation of therapeutic cannabis “attracts investors” to Lesotho. About ten companies are already operating in the area.

Growing this green gold has a price: an annual license of 30,000 euros to be paid to the State, renewable each year. This amount, which is considerable for the country’s companies in light of Lesotho’s fragile economy, has so far allowed foreign companies, particularly Canadian and American, to dominate the market.

On the other hand, local farmers are largely excluded. Mothiba Thamae, 38, has been growing apples, peaches and grapes on her 7.5 hectares for over 20 years. He too would have liked to take advantage of this manna. “We were thinking about getting into cannabis when it was legalized. But the license is far too expensive for us. It was hoped that the government would allow small Basotho farmers (the local ethnic group) to grow them legally. Unfortunately, no.”

Cannabis sommelier: a developing profession in Canada

On the same principle as the wine sommelier, the cannabis sommelier learns to recognize the different cannabis species and their particularities, so that he can advise consumers as well as producers or other stakeholders in this industry.

Rehabilitating cannabis

In the main room of a Vancouver office, six men and six women listen attentively to Adolfo Gonzalez, trainer and co-founder of CannaReps. First, he explains the origins of cannabis and details the ancestral culture associated with the plant from the Middle East, Afghanistan, and neighboring countries.

This native Mexican knows this culture well: he immigrated to Canada in the wake of the legalization of cannabis for medicinal purposes in 2001 because he used it to calm his constant anxiety attacks.

It was with this in mind that he founded CannaReps, with Enid Chen, and began giving this training as a sommelier in cannabis. His expertise was first developed on marijuana for medicinal purposes, as did the majority of Canadian experts in the field.

The theory

The training includes a theoretical component so that the student learns the basics of cannabis: the regions of origin of the plant, its anatomy, thus the differences between sativa cannabis – a slender plant with thinner leaves -, indica cannabis – a bushy plant with denser leaves – and hybrid cannabis.

We also learn about the biochemical composition of each species, its THC, CBD content, “the yin and yang of cannabis,” according to Adolfo Gonzalez, and the involved terpenes – there are over 300 in this plant.

Adolfo Gonzalez also explains how Afghan, Haze, and Kush differ in smell, shape, moisture content, cut, etc. He also explain the different methods of extracting and filtering, the various cannabis products now available on the Canadian market, while stressing the need for the right dosage and the dangers associated with overdose and overuse.

The practice

The training is not only theoretical: it is also practical. Students regularly put their noses in Death Buddha, Wifi OG, Sweet Skunk to learn to recognize the smell and shape. They also learn to dissect a dish to learn its anatomy and specificities and to examine it under a microscope to measure its degree of maturity.

The role of the sommelier

In short, just like wine, cannabis has its “terroirs” and ” varieties,” its ” appellations,” its ” flavors,” its ” nose.”

And just like the wine lover, who will define if he prefers chardonnay over sauvignon or pinot noir over cabernet sauvignon, the marijuana consumer will find that this or that kind of cannabis, that kind of product are among his favorites. And this is where a cannabis sommelier can give valuable advice.

Portugal legalizes cannabis production and consumption

Portugal has started to establish rules for potential consumers and companies that decide to market cannabis products, always with the prior authorization and control of the National Authority for Medicines and Health Products (Infarmed).

In this regard, the Diário da República Agency has published a special section on its website explaining the implications of the law governing the consumption of medicinal cannabis, which will be sold in pharmacies as long as a doctor has prescribed it.

The law provides that the use of cannabis-based medicines, preparations and substances is permitted only “in cases where conventional treatments do not produce the expected effects.” This is to ensure that access to the plant is limited “to cases where conventional treatments have not produced the expected effects or caused the relevant adverse effects,” adds Infarmed.

Its sale will be exclusive in drugstores. The State will control the entire process, from the cultivation of the plant to its preparation and distribution.

The law that legalizes the medicinal consumption of the plant was approved by parliament last June but did not have the necessary regulations for its operation, which finally happened in mid-January and now comes into force.

5 million euros worth of cannabis oil production

Portugal will have a “sophisticated unit” for the production of cannabis oil in the municipality of Nelas, in the central region, as well as a project involving an investment of €5 million.
The municipality of Nelas has given land to a company to develop “a capital-intensive investment that will be very beneficial for the region,” explained to the Lusa agency the President of the Municipal Chamber, José Borges da Silva, who avoided promoting the company’s name.

The company, he added, has pharmaceutical experience in the United States, Brazil, and Belgium and will benefit from the “Compete” program created for investments in fire-affected areas.

The objective, according to Da Silva, is to use the plant for medicinal purposes with a project that will create about 20 skilled jobs.

The leading cannabis-producing in Europe?

Portugal had become a reference country in the cultivation of cannabis for medical purposes since 2014 when the first plantation was authorized. And production is exported to several European countries where the use of medicinal marijuana is legal.

At least half a million Portuguese people (out of a population of 10.3 million) regularly use cannabis, and one in ten have tried it at least once, according to the latest report from the Portuguese Intervention Service for Addictive Behaviors and Addictions.

The promoters expect cannabis products to be prescribed to patients with cancer, neuromuscular disorders or severe forms of epilepsy. Nevertheless, none of this can be done until Infarmed publishes the list of therapeutic indications “deemed appropriate for the prescription of herbal preparations and substances.”

Weed Vaporizers, a New Trend in the Industry

Not all weed vaporizers work the same way, and depending on your needs you need to know what you are looking for in a cannabis vape. The principle of vaporization is old, but some current models are at the cutting edge of technology. Between past and modern ways of smoking, discover this guide to vaporizers to make sure you don’t make mistakes when you buy!

If you have decided to vape weed rather than smoke it, it is interesting to know how vaping works. This will help you understand what enters your body and how it changes from a fluffy green bud to thick, cannabinoid-rich water vapor. Having an understanding of this mechanism will prepare you to choose a vaporizer and make you more competent by becoming a connoisseur of cannabis and vaporizer.

The device works by heating the grass to a temperature high enough to vaporize it but not hot enough to burn it. As a result, cannabis gives off steam, instead of smoke, and that’s what you inhale into your lungs. A vaporizer generally heats marijuana to a temperature of 200°C, just enough to create steam but not enough to burn the plant material.

Even if all vaporizers seem different in their shapes and sizes, their primary function is the same. They require electricity or heat to heat the cannabis to the point where it can evaporate in the device and be transported through a tube in your body.

Convection versus conduction

In general, there are two ways to vaporize cannabis known as convection and conduction. These are generally the two functions found in portable vaporizers, but tabletop vapes work similarly. Conduction was the first technology used for old vaporizers, convection followed. The newest and most expensive vaporizers use a convection system. Both systems have their advantages and disadvantages.


In both cases, the heat generated by the vaporizer creates a water vapor that contains essential cannabis oils. However, the two technologies release these essential oils in different ways, producing a different result and experience.

Conduction is the first method used for vaporizers and works by applying heat directly to the plant material to vaporize it. In other words, cannabis touches something hot, and steam is created. The disadvantage of this method is that only the part of the plant in contact with the heated surface is vaporized. The rest is intact. The user must sometimes move his grass in the chamber during the process to have the entire product evaporated. Increasing the heat of the unit does not help but may burn it.

The second method is convection. In this case, the hot surface and the cannabis are stored in two different chambers within the vaporizer. Hot air is then blown from the heat source. With convection, the plant matter is not in contact with the heat source but only with the hot air circulating through it. The heat is therefore dispersed much more evenly over the plant matter and reaches it in its entirety. This is a better option for a better vaporization experience, but these models are generally more expensive than those that use the conduction method.

The use of a vaporizer

None of the processes described above occur until you start using the weed vaporizer. Only table vapes vaporize before the user inhales into the tip. For all portable vaporizers, the operation is simultaneous with inhaling. Each dry herb vaporizer reacts differently when you pull it, and some are easier to use than others. For this reason, choosing a vaporizer can be difficult and depends mainly on how you want to use it.

Everything that has just been described on the marijuana vapes works with any herb or plant. So if you have grass in your garden or even fragrant flowers that you would like to smoke, you can vaporize them, it’s incredibly healthy for you. You can also try mixing your green grass with a few flowers in a bottle and see how the flavor differs and the effect it has on you. In any case, it’s just water vapor containing essential oils that are ingested by your body! Find more on desktop vapes for weed or vaporisateurs de bureau here

When new cannabis opportunities drive Wall Street crazy

This noise coming from the New York Stock Exchange lately responds to the explosion of the cannabis market in the US mainly but in the world eventualy.

Wall Street brokers enthusiastically welcomed the arrival this week on the official Nasdaq market of the first company specializing solely in cannabis, the Canadian Cronos.

First observation here: the title of Cronos jumped 20% since its listing on the stock market!

The company’s stock, which grows and distributes therapeutic and recreational cannabis on four continents, could already be traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange as well as over-the-counter in New York in the form of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs), certificates allowing a foreign company to trade in the United States without having to comply with the country’s massive regulatory requirements.

However, since Tuesday, the company has been allowed to list its shares on the official Nasdaq platform, the electronic stock exchange overlooking Times Square in New York, in the same way as Apple or Amazon. This implies that it now meets all the requirements of the American financial markets policeman, the SEC.

Cronos CEO Mike Gorenstein described this development as “a major step forward for the company.” In a statement issued last Monday, he noted:

“We believe this will increase long-term shareholder value by improving visibility, liquidity, and attractiveness to institutional investors.
Cronos gave up nearly 2% the day he arrived on the Nasdaq but jumped 20.34% Wednesday.

An explosion of the cannabis market

This fanfare on the New York Stock Exchange responds to the explosion of the cannabis market in the world. In December 2013, Uruguay became the first country in the world to legalize the production, distribution, and consumption of cannabis.

In the United States, although soft drugs are still banned at the federal level, several states have authorized their marketing.

Several countries have also legalized cannabis for therapeutic use. In Canada, recreational use will become legal on July 1, 2018.

North American investors capitalizing on the commercial potential of cannabis can also invest in other specialized over-the-counter companies such as Aphria, Canopy Growth Corp or Aurora Cannabis, whose shares are also traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

It is also possible for them to bet on companies with a foot in the soft drug sector, such as the American alcoholic beverage distributor Constellation Brands, which recently acquired an equity stake in Canopy Growth.

Canada: MPs vote to legalize cannabis

Legalization should be effective in September. It would be the first country in the G7 to allow free consumption of this soft drug.

While France is divided over the opening of shops selling “ultra-light cannabis,” Canadian MPs on Monday passed the bill to legalize cannabis, making Canada the first G7 country to allow the free consumption of this soft drug.

The legislation passed by 205 votes to 82 and was referred to the Senate, which amended it. Under the Constitution, the Senate can delay the passage of a bill but not block it. Once the upper house adopts this reform, it must receive royal assent (signature of the implementing decree).

Effective legalization is expected in early September.

A maximum of four cannabis plants per person

Last week the Liberal government rejected 13 of 46 amendments proposed by the Senate, which approved the bill the week before after seven months of study.

One of these amendments would have left it up to the provinces to ban the cultivation of cannabis in the home, as Manitoba and Quebec wish to do. However, the government firmly opposed it.

“It is recognized that there are different perspectives across the country, but we have done the studies and consultations on home cultivation,” said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in justifying the government’s decision to allow up to four cannabis plants per person.

“In three years, we will be able to review what works, what does not work” in the law, he said.

Cannabis grinder, our review of the top 3 models in 2018!

Grinders have revolutionized joint preparation. No more resin-coated scissors and blackened fingertips. No need to wait until your mixture is perfectly refined. Load then turn, and great little heads are ready to be smoked. We present you the best grinders in 2018.

The best cannabis grinders

A cannabis grinder is a simple to use tool that facilitates the preparation of a joint in an orderly and efficient manner. Dried cannabis heads must be broken into pieces before they can be smoked.

Your preferred method of consumption may be in the form of a joint, blunt, bong or spray.

Whatever the situation, your precious heads will be better off if you break them into small pieces, because it will add even more. Not only do grinders make the job more comfortable, but they also help avoid wasting your heads.

The other methods of preparation can be sticky and thick, especially if you take into account all the new ultra resinous varieties available today in stores. When you have sticky fingers, filling your bong or spray can be a real pain. Tights from blunts and rolling sheets can quickly turn into a nightmare.

There are many types of grinders. Some are as simple as a grater, just like a reduced version of a cheese grater, but for weed. The other standard models come in the form of a single compartment where the heads are ground and then packed in a bong or other.

The other versions are much more advanced and can have up to 4 compartments! These collect the finely ground heads and the kief in separate compartments. Thus, the kief can be collected and stored for later use with the intention of being compressed to make hash or concentrate.

Our committed team sacrificed themselves for a good cause and tested and smoked much excellent quality ganja for research. We rolled many joints, packed multiple bongs until late at night for the sole purpose of being able to concoct this list of the best cannabis grinders for you. Find the best cannabis grinders actually sold on this post!

How to grow cannabis outdoor ?

Sprout your auto-flowering or feminized cannabis seeds.

  • Soak your seeds overnight in demineralized water.
  • Place them the next day in your germination substrate
  • If the germ is out, place it down. In case your seed is unchanged, plant the end from which the germ will quickly come out downwards
  • Cover with 1 cm of substrate and keep 50% humidity and an ambient temperature between 22 and 25°C in your growing space.

We advise you to start growing in small one-liter pots and then pass into 3-liter pots until your plants reach 25 to 30 centimeters. Two solutions are then available to you

Growing cannabis outdoor in pot

If you want to grow outdoors with pots as a base, choose the pot size that best suits your needs, from 40 to 150 L. For auto-flowering seeds, pots from 11 to 18 L will be more than sufficient.

  • Replace your small plants in the large pots
  • Use prepared soil
  • Make sure your plants are exposed to the south and get enough natural light per day
  • Avoid all outside and artificial lights during the cycle of darkness (street lights, apartment lights, etc.)
    During the entire growth phase, two weeks after the seeds have been planted and the cotyledons have emerged (usually until mid-July), use conventional growth fertilizer
  • Add root stimulant during the first two or three growth stages. We recommend watering once or twice a week depending on the intensity of sunlight your plants receive, if the weather is not good, simply water with water.

When flowering, use a range of flowering fertilizers (Advanced Nutrients for example). Then water more frequently, two to three times during the week. During the last month of flowering, add a flowering booster. Finally, rinse two weeks before your harvest.

Growing cannabis in open ground

The cannabis plant is a plant that adapts relatively well to all substrates and proliferates easily. Simply avoid sandy and marshy soils. The richer your soil, the better your crop will be. Soils with sedimentary origins prove to be the best, in fact, they give your plants the stability and nutrition appropriate for their development.

We recommend however to establish a hole in the ground of one cubic meter, which you will fill with the appropriate substrate. Make a mixture of prepared soil to enriched the soil, coconut and some organic fertilizers such as Guanokalong.

For watering, start the root stimulator (Start Booster from Aptus) two weeks after potting and continue for the next three weeks. Use your growth fertilizer (Advanced Nutrients) as in a pot crop, i.e. once or twice a week depending on the weather. If the latter does not offer sun water the water.

During the flowering phase also use a flowering fertilizer and a stimulator during the last month before the harvest (Super Pk from Aptus). Then water two to three times a week depending on the weather as well. We advise you to rinse with water three weeks before cutting.

Whatever your type of outdoor cultivation, it is important to plant your cannabis plants in a sunny place, if possible sheltered from the wind and discreet. However, pot cultivation prevents damage from animals or insects on the ground. Also, remember to check the PH level of your water.

Top 4 Cannabis Myths and Facts

Cannabis is a substance that has been put through a lot of condemnation and negative publicity unfairly. While everything has its upsides and downsides, marijuana is always a different case, according to the public’s perception. Due to the publicity, the public understands it as something that only has several disadvantages without any advantage.
The reality, however, is that weed has significant upsides besides the downsides, and it’s unfair that the society often only looks at the downsides rather than every side. The many bad things you hear about marijuana are usually based on just myths and propaganda. Here are the top 5 marijuana myths and facts you need to know;

1. Marijuana Affects Your Mental Stability

fbaisbfeiofawuowowow There has been a common myth that smoking weed degrades your mental stability because the substance supposedly kills your brain cells. We would like to state that that’s a complete hoax.


After many years of research, the University of Louisville has recently found that cannabis use doesn’t, in fact, murder your brain cells or affect your mental stability. The research validates a 2003 report published by Cambridge University making the same claim.

2. Marijuana Is More Harmful To Your Lungs than Cigarettes

Some people claim that smoking cannabis is worse to your lungs than smoking cigarettes. They are of the opinion that marijuana causes lung problems twice as much as cigarettes. How true is that?


Marijuana contains fewer chemicals than cigarettes. The substances include cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). On the other hand, smoke contains nicotine, tar, CO2, formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT). These chemicals are more harmful to your lungs than the compounds in marijuana.

3. Marijuana Can Make You Crazy

There is another common myth out there that weed can make someone go crazy. Crazy individuals are many times associated with it—people just think someone is high on weed when they seem to be acting crazy.


A lot of research has been done to establish the relationship between marijuana and mental health. Up to now, there’s no evidence, showing that the two are related in any way. It is just bad press.

4. Marijuana Makes Sex Uninteresting

Due to propaganda and negative publicity, many people have been made to believe that smoking marijuana affects sexual performance. There are many ads both online and offline warning teenagers that weed makes you antisocial, unable to talk to the girls, and poor in bed.


According to a particular Canadian based research group, smoking marijuana makes you better in bed. The organization found that more than half of the participants(men and women) who had sex after taking a few puffs of weed reported it as more enjoyable than regular sex.


There is a lot of misleading propaganda in the public domain regarding cannabis. Some people will tell you that marijuana affects your mental stability or damages your lungs twice as much as cigarettes. Others will tell you that it can make you crazy or reduce your sex appetite. But the truth is that none of these claims holds any water.

Weed in the garden

If you want to place a few plants outside, it is relatively easy. The safest way to prevent diseases in the plant is to grow from seeds. The biggest disadvantage of growing outdoors is the stench it brings with it. Please note that the neighbours may complain about it. It is best to consult with the neighbours in advance (or let them enjoy your harvest), which prevents a lot of hassle afterwards.

Can I also grow marijuana in a pot?

The big advantage of cannabis in a pot: You can move it around.

This way you can always put the plant in the sunniest part of the garden. When you get visit you can put it away. It is also possible to decide for yourself how big your plant will be. If you put the cannabis in a small pot, it will remain small.

A cannabis plant can get a huge height in the ground.
In the garden your plant will produce more yield.

It is also an idea to grow your weed in the wilderness. (Guerrilla grows) Then you can grow the plants large and you have a good yield. If someone finds your plants, the chance is small that someone knows who they are.

growing weed in house

Growth tips:

Keep an eye on your plants so that you can see in time if something is wrong.
To ensure that your plants get enough light it is necessary to keep the leaves free of dust.
Growth and spraying agents used to grow tomatoes are also suitable for cannabis plants.
Do you see boilers somewhere? Then that soil is very suitable for planting cannabis plants. The cannabis plant comes from the same family as the nettle.
How much light?

The plant continues to grow when it is in the light for about 18 hours and 6 hours in the dark. Under these conditions, the plant only continues to grow. She will then not blossom.
Only at 12 hours of light and dark alternately, the plant will start flowering and make weed.

Growing cannabis in the house.

If you want to grow weed for your own use in your own home, it is best done in a growing cupboard with lighting. If you can also place this cabinet in a moisture-free cellar, which has room temperature, this is ideal.

breeding cabinet

You don’t have to make sure that your cultivation cabinet is light-tight, because the cellar is dark. However, you have to take into account that there is sufficient air supply.

Efficiënt en effectief je eigen plantjes kweken


Je kunt op de pagina Thuis wiet kweken natuurlijk al het een en ander lezen over het kweken van wiet, maar in dit artikel focussen we ons op hoe je te werk moet gaan om efficiënt wiet te kweken. Om te beginnen zijn er natuurlijk veel verschillende type cannabiszaden. We gaan in dit artikel uit van het binnenshuis kweken van de plantjes. Wanneer je de plantjes buiten wilt kweken (en zaadjes hebt die geschikt zijn voor buitenshuis), houd er dan rekening mee dat je deze alleen in de zomer kunt kweken.

Geef de zaadjes voldoende water

hfavifvoseroueeuooesWanneer je hebt besloten om zelf wietplanten te kweken (het maximale aantal voor thuisgebruik is 5), dan zal je moeten beginnen om de cannabiszaadjes te wateren. Kraanwater is hierbij ideaal en we raden aan om de zaadjes eerst in een glas water te zetten en op een plek met een temperatuur van ongeveer 18-30 graden Celsius te plaatsen. Je zou het glas dus bijvoorbeeld in een keukenkastje kunnen plaatsen. Controleer de zaadjes elke 12 uur en druk drijvende zaadjes soms even onder water om ervoor te zorgen dat ze voldoende water opnemen.

Kies voor een geschikte bodem

De zaadjes kunnen meestal na ongeveer 48 uur worden geplant. Wanneer de witte wortels van de zaadjes in het glas water zichtbaar worden moeten de zaadjes uit het water worden gehaald en in een schoon en vrij losse, pH-neutrale bodem met goede drainage worden geplant. Bij de betere growshops kan vaak een bodem bestaande uit perliet, vermiculiet en veenmos worden gekocht, maar ook universele potgrond met hydrokorrels volstaat vaak prima als bodem.

Gebruik een geschikte pot

Bij het planten van de zaadjes is het belangrijk dat ze op de juiste diepte en in een goede container of pot worden geplant. Cannabiszaadjes moeten over op een diepte van ongeveer 0,5 tot 1,5 cm in de aarde worden gestoken en de pot moet een diepte van ten minste 10 cm hebben. Zorg er ook voor dat de pot gaatjes heeft waardoor overtollig vocht kan worden gedraineerd. De aarde moet goed vochtig, maar niet doorweekt zijn.

Plaats de pot in de juiste omgeving

Tot slot is het belangrijk om de pot in een omgeving met de juiste temperatuur te plaatsen. De planten groeien het beste bij een temperatuur van 20-25 graden Celsius. Dek de pot in het begin af met een stuk helder plastic en verwijder dit plastic wanneer de planten door beginnen te komen en de eerste echte bladeren zich vormen. Houd de bodem vochtig en maak eventueel gebruik van wat meststoffen. Let wel op dat er niet teveel gebruikt wordt gemaakt van meststoffen, aangezien dit schadelijk kan zijn voor de plant.
