United States Representative Blumenauer: Reform Our Marijuana Laws

I’m glad that the rest of the country is finally highlighting his work, as he helps lead the way to federal marijuana reform. Below is a video that he released recently. Don’t you wish your Representative was as logical as him?

New Study Tells Nothing About Marijuana's Role In Heart Disease

By Mitch Earlywine A new study on marijuana appeared in Journal of the American Heart Association. These are interesting data, but we have to interpret them very carefully. Sure, we know cannabis can raise heart rate briefly, but most users develop tolerance to the effect. We’ve also seen (in a much larger sample) that it doesn’t increase mortality rates even among survivors of heart attacks. But the new study made the news anyway. Investigators specifically searched a French database where physicians are legally bound to report any drug-related case that they view as [...]

New Hampshire Senators Crush Patients' Hopes For Home Marijuana Cultivation

Earlier this month, patients practically begged the New Hampshire Senate Health, Education, and Human Services Committee to approve HB 1622, a bill that would allow them to grow up to two mature marijuana plants until a dispensary opens within 30 miles of their residences. Sadly, even though this bill had already passed the New Hampshire House with 227-73 (76%) support, and even though all five senators on the committee had previously supported home cultivation, the committee refused to move HB 1622 forward. Only Senator John Reagan (R-Deerfield) spoke up on behalf of patients who can’t [...]

How To Get 4-6oz Per Plant In 70 Days With G8LED And Autoflower Seeds

Autoflowering cannabis strains have proven themselves to be a good alternative to typical cannabis strains in the last few years. Autoflowering seeds differ from typical photoperiod dependent seeds in that the autoflowering seeds can switch from vegetative growth to flowering automatically and will be ready to harvest in about 70 days. Combine these properties with the extraordinary growing power of G8LED indoor growing technology and you will have an extremely efficient grow environment with multiple harvests per season. The main benefit of the autoflowering strain is its short life span [...]

How To Grow Marijuana Plants With Low Stress Training

By Robert Bergman Low Stress Training (LST) is essentially any technique for training your marijuana plants that does not cause them stress in the way that something like topping or pruning could. Like most techniques for improving yields, LST’s main goal is providing as much light exposure to the plants as possible. The inverse square law states that the light’s intensity radiating from its point source is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the light. For marijuana cultivators, all this means is that the superior light is [...]

Medical Marijuana Laws Not Associated With Increased Use By Adolescents

By Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director The enactment of state laws legalizing the physician-recommended use of cannabis therapy is not associated with increased levels of marijuana use by young people, according to data published online in the Journal of Adolescent Health. Researchers at Rhode Island Hospital and Brown University assessed the impact of medical cannabis laws by examining trends in reported drug use by high-schoolers in a cohort of states before and after legalization. Researchers compared these trends to geographically matched states that had not adopted medical marijuana laws. Authors reported overall “no [...]
