What Makes Some Marijuana Strains Turn Purple?

I will never forget the first time I saw purple marijuana. A girl I used to hangout with when I was a teenager told me that she had some Purple Kush, and that I had to smoke it with her.

I had never seen purple marijuana prior to that, and to be honest, I was skeptical that it would actually be purple until I seen it. But sure enough, [...]

Does Playing Music For Marijuana Plants Help Them Grow?

Once upon a time I watched an episode of Myth Busters that explored whether or not playing music for plants helped them grow.

One of my good friends starting playing heavy metal music for his marijuana plants from that time on, and swears it [...]
