Nitrogen Deficiency in Cannabis and How to Fix It

When it comes to marijuana, cannabis deficiencies are a key concern in the growing process, whether it’s part of a commercial operation or a DIY project. Whether you’re new to the growing game or a seasoned veteran, nutrient deficiencies are often an all-too-common problem for many growers. The most common deficiencies include: Boron deficiencies Calcium deficiencies Copper deficiencies Magnesium deficiencies Nitrogen deficiencies The nitrogen deficiency is our focus in this particular blog. In many instances, the solution for these deficiencies is relatively simple. However, sometimes, keeping your plants happy and healthy requires a little more effort. Warning Signs of a Nitrogen Deficiency If you notice any or a combination of the 10 following signs, there’s a high probability that your cannabis plants are nitrogen deficient:   large leaves turn from a pale-green color to white and yellow leaves begin to curl and drop off petioles and veins turn reddish plant tissue develops necrosis plants begin flowering plants prematurely fade and die smaller leaves and stems turn purplish or reddish stems acquire purplish, vertical stripes yellowing (Chlorosis) spreads from lower parts of the plant to the top yield volumes decrease noticeably In the earlier signs of the deficiency, you’ll begin to see a slight discoloration in the more mature leaves of the plant. As growth continues, it takes on a paler, thinner appearance due to insufficient branching. It eventually, it will fade and die. That is why it needs proper maintenance and care. How to correct Nitrogen Deficiencies Nitrogen deficiencies in the soil are a very common occurrence. On a positive note, it’s fairly easy to put this nutrient back into the soil so your plants can take advantage of the benefits it provides. If you want to keep your plants going strong, work organic matter into the soil. This is not only beneficial to your plants; it helps the soil retain moisture and improves its overall structure. Sources of organic matter containing nitrogen are: animal manure blood meal bone meal coco peat (coir pith) compost fish meal groundnut husks horn meal nettle slag nitrogen-fixing plants such as alfalfa, beans, clover, peas, and peanuts If you’re planning to add animal manure, keep in mind every type of this fertilizer has different concentrations of nitrogen. For instance, poultry manure contains the highest concentration of nitrogen whereas horse manure has a much lower concentration. The best advice we can give is to purchase high-quality cannabis, if you want to avoid any deficiencies.

How to Identify Moldy Marijuana

Moldy marijuana is a cannabis grower’s worst nightmare. It can happen anywhere, at any time, and totally destroy what should’ve been a beautiful harvest in the blink of an eye. Naturally, a reputable cultivator with any shred of integrity would never allow moldy weed to get to the marketplace. Unfortunately, buds that have been grown, harvested, and dried properly can develop a fungus. Thus, proper storage is important. How does Cannabis develop Mold? Mold is a variety of fungus that can grow on indoor crops as well as those grown in direct sunlight. Furthermore, it affects marijuana harvests in a broad range of climates and environments. All it needs to thrive and spread is a limited airflow and moisture. Mold produces a fungus with a root-like structure called mycelium, which produces airborne spores that proliferate by attaching themselves to damp surfaces. Some mold types not only grow and spread quickly on live plants but trimmed buds as well. Thus, it is important to keep a check on the health of your plants constantly. Ensure proper ventilation and sunlight while a dry ambience to a certain extend helps. What does moldy Cannabis look like? If you’re unfamiliar with growing cannabis and the development of mold on it, it can be difficult to spot it at first. Unlike trichomes, the glistening, shiny crystals on cannabis plants, mold doesn’t glisten and it certainly isn’t shiny. There are three primary types of mold that can adversely affect your plants as follows: Botrytis (bud rot) – bud rot is usually brown or gray and starts on the inside of the bud. If you squeeze buds that have botrytis, they may crumble and flake apart. Powdery mildew – buds infected with powdery mildew are easily identified by the grayish-white color and powdery texture covering the bud flowers and leaves. Sooty mold – this type of mold looks like someone sprinkled soot across the plant’s leaves. It is easily identified by small, blackish spots on the leaves. Although it is a fungus, sooty mold is indicative of a serious pest infestation. These visual clues will quickly tell you that your cannabis plants are moldy. Any type of black spots, fuzzy dark-grayish chunks, or white powder is most likely mold. In addition to these visual clues, mold has a distinct musty smell that reminds you of a pile of wet towels that were never put in the washer or wet hay bales. The best way to avoid moldy weed is to purchase your cannabis from a high-quality, reputable dispensary or retailer. Ensure that you check for mold at all times before you buy it.

Can Cannabis be cloned?

Growing your own cannabis for its medicinal and recreational benefits is a more economical way of ensuring you have plenty on hand. However, if you’re just starting to grow your own, you might want to consider cloning your cannabis instead of growing it from seed. Cloning cannabis involves taking a cutting off a flowering plant, planting the cutting, and nurturing it until it’s capable of growing by itself. It’s also an easier way to preserve its growth and its ability to reproduce from one generation to another. Why Cloning? Scientists refer to the above cutting and replanting action as cloning since it re-creates an exact copy or duplicate of the original cannabis plant (a.k.a. the daughter plant and mother plant respectively. Although this may not seem that significant, the daughter plant the same genes and growth characteristics as that of the mother plant. So, if you clone a plant that contains high cannabinoid levels and produces a lot of flowers, the daughter plant will as well.The only difference is that you won’t have to spend the money and time that’s involved when growing your plants from seed. Furthermore, cloning is significantly different from growing from seed because the genetics of the seed are slightly different from the mother plant. Unfortunately, that just the way things work with plant biology. So, if you take one of the mother plant’s seeds, plant it in soil, and expect it to mature with the same traits of the mother plant, chances are you’re going to be disappointed. Cloning Cannabis involves choosing the right Plant Remember, not all cannabis strains are ideal for cloning. In fact, not every plant in the same strain makes good cloning subjects. So, the question arises – “How do I find the right mother plant to obtain a cutting from?” The bottom line is to choose a plant with the ideal combination of characteristics in order to maximize your yield. Yes, the strain is a key factor as it applies to the effects, you’re desirous of from the finished product and its general growing characteristics.However, cloning cannabis requires that you locate an individual plant in the strain that demonstrates the specific traits you’re looking for. We suggest that you clone cannabis from plants that: grows aggressively and quickly during both the early flowering stage and the vegetative stage grows lots of buds and stems grows to a medium height is not the auto-flowering variety To learn more about cannabis cloning or for information on the best glass smoking accessories, contact Tank Glass by sending a message to support@tankglass.us.

What Materials make the best Weed Grinders?

When it comes to minimizing waste while containing everything down to the minutest particle of powder, it’s all about choosing the right weed grinder. However, not all weed grinders are created equal based on the material they’re constructed from. Prices often range from the very cheap to the high priced investment grade because of the materials used in their construction. Granted, a person’s budget does play a significant role in the selection of a weed grinder, but there are certain materials that outrank others: Acrylic or plastic grinders – one of the cheaper material choices is acrylic or plastic. Weed grinders made from this material are easily mass produced in clear, multiple, and opaque colors. The teeth are typically diamond-shaped and do a relatively decent job of shredding ones cannabis. The main drawback to acrylic or plastic grinders is how easily their teeth can break. The tinier broken fragments could easily contaminate your weed. Consequently, experienced smokers will opt for something more expensive. Composite grinders – composite weed grinders are made using metal and wood. This style of grinder has a metal interior with a wooden exterior. As with grinders made from other materials, composite grinders turn buds into a finer form that is more conducive to airflow. Just stuffing an entire nugget into a bowl will result in harder pulls, weakened cannabis performance, and a diminished smoking experience. Trying to pull the nugget apart helps but still can’t compete with the airflow achieved by grinding your weed. Metal grinders – when it comes to longevity of use, you can’t beat a metal grinder. All types of alloys are available such as anodized aluminum made in phenomenal colors, stainless steel and its incredible durability, and even titanium despite the cost involved. Most smokers prefer models made from anodized aluminum because of the color factor. You can find them in every color imaginable, even multicolored. Thus, select the one that suits your requirements. Wooden grinders – there are numerous bamboo or wooden weed grinders available on both the high and low end. As you might suspect, the dirt cheap, low-end grinders are made in China and India. Most have these have bamboo or wooden teeth that can easily break off. If you have an aversion to acrylic/plastic or metal grinders, these are a good choice. Just remember to keep the amount of weed you want to grind small enough to achieve the best grind possible.

6 Ways CBD can enhance Athletic Performance

For many athletes, finding an all-natural, performance-enhancing product or substance can be extremely difficult considering it has to meet all anti-doping guidelines and laws while at the same time being safe to ingest. Thus, besides herbs and supplements, what is there? The answer is CBD or Cannabidnoil, a substance that has become extremely popular with athletes in different sports over the past decade.

Some athletes suffer with GI stress and have found that CBD relieves the inability to absorb nutrients as well as alleviating nausea and vomiting.

Does Cannabis really impact Your Appetite?

There are numerous unverifiable claims about cannabis that aren’t backed by any scientific evidence. However, CBD’s and THC’s impacts on a person’s appetite is actually based on reality. This could also be a significant leap forward in the treatment of many conditions and diseases including cardiovascular disease, eating disorders, obesity, and more. Thus, if gaining or losing weight is your goal, smoke some cannabis and let it works its magic. How Cannabis affects Your Appetite Cannabis triggers your appetite by stimulating the cannabinoid (CB1) receptors of the brain. As a result, these receptors release a hunger-triggering hormone call ghrelin. According to an animal research study, THC enhances our sensitivity to smell thereby making food aromas more potent and more appealing. And that makes you want to eat more, helping you gain weight. Furthermore, research has also suggested that those neurons that normally turn off while we’re eating don’t turn off when we smoke cannabis. Additionally, THC increases the release of dopamine and makes eating that much more enjoyable. Dopamine helps control pleasure and reward in your brain. Consequently, the more dopamine that is released the lower our self-control. Can CBD cause a Person to lose Weight? Although more research needs to be conducted, some health and wellness gurus claim that CBD will help you lose weight. While this may be true, this potential side effect has yet to proven. Interestingly enough, a study conducted 10 years ago showed that CBD reduced the appetites of certain species of rats. Let’s consider the science involved for a moment. The endocannabinoid system responds to the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the brain as follows: CB1 receptors are located in our brains and CNS (central nervous system and become more widespread throughout the fatty tissues of obese individuals. CB2 receptors are primarily found in our immune systems. CBD works in conjunction with other cannabinoids to activate or, more specifically, to antagonize CB1 and CB2 receptors. As a result, CB1 receptor antagonists help to reduce a person’s appetite and stimulate the CB2 receptors which in turn help to reduce the intake of food. Therefore, when CBD activates the CB2 receptors and antagonizes the CB1 receptors, it often results in decreased appetite and reduced food intake. Thus, you start to lose weight. While additional studies are needed regarding the efficacy of smoking cannabis on certain conditions and diseases such as anorexia, cancer, and obesity, individuals are using cannabis in their homes for these specific reasons.

When are the conditions ideal for growing Marijuana in California?

Growing marijuana outdoors on one’s property can be quite a challenging task. While indoor cannabis growing can be costly at first, having access to a private, sunny outdoor area can make things a lot easier and considerably less expensive. Basically, cannabis plants require the same conditions as tomatoes. However, a tomato plant will usually produce fruit with the proper amount of care. Conversely, attention to detail is crucial when it comes to growing marijuana, especially if a larger yield is the ultimate goal. When is the best Time to plant Marijuana Outdoors? When it comes to getting started with your cannabis crop, timing is critical. If you plant too early, the cold will likely decimate your plants. The same is true if you plant too late in the year as your plants could be the victim of an early fall frost depending on where you live. Thus, it’s important to understand the life cycles of the cannabis strain that you’re planning on growing. The survival of your plants depends on the climate in your region of the state.While it’s relatively easy to manipulate air flow and humidity indoors, you’re subject to the elements of nature when growing your plants outdoors. Ideally, the warm summer months prove to be the optimum growing period. However, this depends on the region you’re located in. You should consider starting your plants indoors under grow lights before transplanting them outdoors. So, when is the best time of year to grow cannabis in California?There is a lot of climate diversity to contend with when growing your cannabis outdoors in California. For example, Northern California growers have to contend with cooler temperatures, rain, and other climate conditions seen along Oregon’s coast. However, the soil quality is somewhat better than that of their counterparts to the south. On the other hand, Southern California growers are fortunate to have drier air and plenty of sunshine similar to what you’d see in the high desert region of central Oregon.Growing cannabis outdoors your property can be a complex process but, it can also be an enjoyable experience. You shouldn’t let the growing requirements intimidate you. However, be sure you do plenty of research before getting started on your venture. In the long run, this could help you get a running start on your first crop while at the same time saving you a considerable amount of time and money.

Many also contend that this helps with the bad mood that results from being hung-over, thereby making things more bearable for you as well as those around you. Yet while this appears to be a good remedy for some of the symptoms, is marijuana truly a cure for a hangover? In reality, there is no cure and the symptoms will only go away with rest and time.Interestingly enough, other symptoms are often compounded by smoking marijuana such as cognitive impairment, “cotton” mouth or dry mouth, and rapid heartbeat. But given the fact that no two individuals are alike, neither are the nature and extent of the hangovers they suffer. As a result, not everyone benefits from cannabis use when attempting to treat their hangover. Consequently, a little bit of experimentation may be needed to find the right “dosage” of marijuana when attempting to treat a hangover. Is Marijuana a Cure for Hangovers? While smoking marijuana can help with some of the symptoms attributed to a hangover, this remains a case-by-case basis as every individual’s endocannabinoid system reacts differently from each other. If you don’t experience any adverse effects when smoking cannabis to treat a hangover, it may help with other issues such as diarrhea, fatigue, headache, lingering grouchiness or moodiness, and nausea.
