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.

Fact

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?

Fact

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.

Fact

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.

Fact

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.

Conclusion

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.

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.

Growth tips:

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.

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

Cannabiszaden

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.
