How does Fimming differ from Topping?

Are you interested in cultivating cannabis? Well, if you want to succeed at growing cannabis, you have to understand the concepts of “fimming” and “topping.” These cannabis growing terminologies are a part of the much broader category of pruning. Pruning is the act of selectively removing branches from plants, shrubs, and tree, the purpose of which is to improve the structure of the plant and promote new, healthy growth. Contrary to popular belief, pruning is not meant to stunt plant growth but stimulate it instead. Fimming This is a pruning method in which up to 75% of new growth (the top buds) is removed from the main stem of the plant. This forces the plant to develop several new flowering sites while promoting the growth of lower stems or branches. Fimming has a dual goal: to increase the number of flowering sites to train the plant into reshaping itself Although fimming excels at these, it’ not that great when it comes to producing a shape that’s, more orderly. The plant will grow at its own pace. When should You Fim Your Cannabis Plants? The timing for fimming is the same for topping. Wait until your plants have developed between 3 and 5 nodes (the more, the merrier) before fimming. Remember to always do your fimming when your plants are in the vegetative stage – not before or after. Wait up to two weeks before fimming your new growth. This will give your plants the time needed to recover from the shock that results from fimming and adjust to their new growing pattern. Topping “Topping” is the process of cutting off the growth tip of the primary cannabis stem or in other words, pruning your plant. Removing the terminal (or top) bud forces the plant to develop two new flowering sites while promoting new lower branch growth. Just like with fimming, topping has a dual goal of increasing the flowering sites, and reshaping the plant. However, no two plants might retain the same shape. When should You Fim Your Cannabis Plants? Topping should be done once your plants have developed a minimum of three nodes each. With that minimum of nodes, the plant’s roots and stems will be strong enough to tolerate the pruning process and recover from the shock. It usually takes a plant up to 30 days during the vegetative phase to produce at least 3 to 5 nodes. Just keep in mind that different strains often grow at different rates. So be sure that you’re patient and wait until your plants are ready for the topping process.To learn more, send us a message at or visit the Tank Glass website by clicking here.

Top Suggestions for salvaging Your Old Cannabis

So you recently found a small stash of some old weed and you’re wondering if you can still smoke it. Will it still get you high or will it hurt you? It’s a frequently asked question. Obviously, you don’t want to let any of your precious herb go to waste if you can avoid it. Fortunately, there are several ways you can use old weed and still reap the benefits of it. If you’re going to use old weed, it’s best to repurpose it. But first, we need to answer a couple of questions: If you smoke old weed, will you still get high? YES. Just about any “smoker” that you talk to has a story about finding an old stash. But over time, the cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes decrease. So the weed is less potent. Is using old weed too risky or is it safe? If stored properly, weed can stay good for roughly 2 years. At that point, it begins to degrade. However, it doesn’t pose a threat to one’s health or safety. And now for the big question? How can you salvage your old weed? Obviously, it won’t be as enjoyable compared to fresh weed. Therefore, it’s best repurpose it or find an alternative means for using it. Here are some suggestions:   Make a concentrate – if you want to experiment a little, you can create some extremely strong concentrates like bubble hash or tinctures. Make edibles – chances are, your old cannabis has lost some of its potency. However, if it’s used in some form of edible, it can help salvage its psychoactive characteristics. Whether you make gummy bears or cookies, the choice is yours. Make kief – this is one of the best ways to salvage your old cannabis. Kief is the result of grinding your cannabis nuggets which produces the powdery substance (still weed) that’s beneath the screen in your grinder. Rehydrate it – over time, cannabis loses its moisture and eventually dries out. Fear not; you can rehydrate your old cannabis. You can do this by putting citrus peel in with your weed or use a humidity pack to help maintain is strength longer. Store it in a clean and dry container after that. Vape it – if you want a break from normality, put your old weed in a vaporizer. Rather than combusting your cannabis the traditional way, vaping steams your cannabis so you can savor the desired effects. Its just another way to smoke it! While these are great ideas for salvaging your old cannabis, why not smoke that fresh weed out of one of our outstanding smoking accessories.

Understanding the Benefits and Effects of THC-P

If you haven’t heard about THC-P, it’s one of the newest THC variants introduced to the market and has already been proven to be one of the strongest cannabinoids to date. Even more important is the fact that it’s made from hemp. Consequently, it’s available online as well as various retail locations other than dispensaries. So what exactly is THC-P? THC-P or Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabiphorol is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in smaller concentrations in cannabis plants. Select strains of the variant were initially discovered in 2019 by Italian researchers. But it didn’t take long before hemp producers saw a tremendous opportunity for developing new products. As a result, manufacturers found the means to make other cannabinoid alternatives including Delta-8 and hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) which is a hydrogenated Tetrahydrocannabinol derivative. Consequently, the consensus was “why not THC-P?” Unfortunately, there isn’t enough of this material in a plant to infuse products such as gummies, tinctures, or vape pens. Instead, scientists typically extract the CBD from hemp and then isolate it before exposing it to a series of reactions that change the chemical structure despite the fact that it’s naturally occurring. So many manufacturers decided to procure enough THC-P in order to create new product lines. That is because the demand is so high and production is still catching up. THC-P – its Benefits and Effects As with any cannabinoid, they typically respond to each individual’s unique ECS or endocannabinoid system differently. No two individuals can smoke or otherwise consume the same amount, format, or strain, and experience the identical results. There are too many factors that contribute to every individual’s experience. That being said, THC-P is the ideal option for individuals who’ve developed a high tolerance to THC and patients requiring heavier doses. Although the effects are similar to that of THC, those of THC-P are a bit more intense and potent. Consequently, you’ll consume less but achieve and enjoy the same results. This will enable you to save money if budget is a factor in your consumption habits. With THC-P, you can expect to feel euphoric and relaxed. Furthermore, it helps to improve one’s mood and reduces physical tension. In some cases, it has been effective at fighting insomnia, increasing a person’s appetite, and treating chronic pain. The medicinal benefits are high and studies are going on. As far as legality is concerned, the legal status of any cannabinoid depends on its point of origination. For example, any marijuana derived cannabinoid is only legal if it’s sold through dispensary channels or medical marijuana programs.

When should You grow Marijuana Outdoors in California?

If you’re planning on growing marijuana outdoors, there are several things you need to think about ahead of time, the most important of which is knowing the best time of year to plant it outdoors. If you live in California, you’re probably wondering when you should plant your cannabis outdoors. Unfortunately, the answer isn’t that simple as there are several factors that must be considered first. Then there’s always the old trial and error method as well. California’s Seasons Compared to other geographic areas, California’s are different. A key difference is whether you live in Northern or Southern California. The weather in Northern California tends to be somewhat gloomy with cooler temperatures and more rainfall. Southern California is more of a sunny, warm desert except for the coastal areas. Consequently, the air is dry and the temps are toasty. Winters are often sunny and warm but have less daylight due to the shorter days, thereby making summer the better growing season. Size of Your Plants Plant size is another key factor as it relates to the strain you’ve chosen, how long it takes to go from seedling to flowering, and how big you want them to be. Most plants will transition to the flowering stage based on how much sunlight and darkness they’re exposed to over a 24-hour period. Therefore, if you want to grow the largest plants possible, you’ll need to plant them as early in the growing season as possible.Generally speaking, you should plant your cannabis during the first week in May if you want really large plants. The latest you should plant them is towards the end of August. You should also consider the size of the pots you use for planting. Planting marijuana in a smaller pot at the beginning of the season will stunt a plant’s growth because it won’t allow the roots to expand, so plan ahead and buy the right size growing pots. Keep a check on the amount of light and water that is provided to the plants while you need to make sure that there are no diseases afflicting your plants. Sun and Water Two other factors to consider are sun and water. Typically, the amount of sun your plants get will determine how much water to give them. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of sunlight in Southern California. Obviously, if you live in a warmer climate and your plants get a lot of sunlight, you’ll need to water more frequently. Just be sure you don’t overwater them as this can cause mold and mildew problems.If you want quality smoking accessories when your plants are ready, be sure to contact Tank Glass at

5 Factors that can have a significant Impact on your Cannabis High

It’s a given that no two individuals are alike. It’s also a given that no two cannabis highs are alike either. So why is this? Is there anything that can be done about it? Getting high is a terrific experience. It breaks down your defenses, enables you to see things from a completely different perspective, and generates good vibes. But as we just mentioned, no two cannabis highs are alike. In addition to quality and strain, there are 5 factors that can have a significant impact on your high including: Height and weight – although this is a factor with most drugs, body size can have a marked influence on the cannabis high you experience. Gram for gram, a larger person will need to smoke more cannabis compare to smaller individuals. However, larger individuals shouldn’t automatically consume larger amounts to compensate for their size. However, if you find that your cannabis high is unusually stronger or weaker when compared to other individuals, this could be a factor. Metabolism – while metabolism is a factor that is often largely misunderstood, we do know that individuals with faster metabolisms process marijuana faster and may have stronger effects. On the other hand, those individuals with slower metabolisms may have difficulties getting as high due to a higher cannabis tolerance. Method of consumption – it’s no secret that different methods of consumption will yield different experiences or results. Bioavailability plays a significant role. For example, vaping offers greater bioavailability than smoking yet cannabis-infused foods offer relatively low bioavailability but is considered a more potent method. Whether you use a bong or a water pipe, you will have a different experience. Prior experiences – this can affect you in different ways. First, consider frequency of usage and your tolerance. For example, if you smoke throughout the day, your high is likely to be less dramatic compared to those who smoke less frequently. Second, think about your emotional response to getting high. Was your high largely enjoyable of did your experience any semi-traumatic events? Set and Setting – “Set” refers to your mindset and how you feel before getting high. The “Setting” refers to your smoking environment. Your state of mind prior to, during, and after smoking will directly determine whether you have an anxiety-ridden and unpleasant high or one that is more euphoric and relaxing. Is it possible that an individual can’t get high? While there have been a few theories regarding this, they have yet to be proven.

How long does THC stay in Your Blood, Hair, Saliva, and Urine?

So you’re applying for a new job when you see the paragraph on the application that asks you if you’ll consent to a pre-employment drug test or that you’ll be subject to random testing while you’re in that company’s employ. If this sounds familiar, you probably wondered about the length of time that marijuana stays in your system. Obviously, you don’t want this to hinder getting that new job. On the other hand, you don’t want to quit smoking it either. How long does Weed remain in Your System? Drug testing can involve blood, hair, saliva, or urine samples. Keep in mind that the timeframes quoted on how long THC remains in these different testing samples are general, not exact or guaranteed. The following will shed some light on the amount of time that THC remains in each sample: Blood – although drug tests involving blood samples are uncommon, the presence of THC will depend on how frequently you smoke. Generally speaking, the THC can be detected in a blood sample 24 to 48 hours after smoking. However, if you’re a daily smoker, it can linger up to 25 days or longer. Hair – hair follicle testing isn’t as common as it once was. What we do know is that hair has the lengthiest detection window. For most individuals, the presence of THC in hair can be detected up to 90 days after you smoked last regardless of your frequency of use. This means that you have to be extremely careful with your usage if the employer is going to test a sample of your hair. Saliva – like urine tests, saliva tests provide quick results at an affordable cost. Plus, they’re considerably more convenient than urine tests. The general timeframe for how long THC lingers in a person’s saliva is 1 to 3 days in occasional users and up to 30 days for individuals that smoke on a daily basis. Urine sample – the length of time that THC remains in urine depends on how often an individual smokes. Typically, the more you consume, the greater the length of time that cannabinoids remain in your urine. If you smoke occasionally, it may only remain 3 or 4 days; if you’re a moderate smoker, 5 to 7 days; and if you smoke daily, it can remain between 10 and 30 days. If you have been looking to add eclectic pipes, water bongs or glass beakers to your collection of smoking accessories, we have a unique range available online.

Benefits and Effects of Caryophyllene

One of the terms you might hear in cannabis circles is “caryophyllene.” What is it, you ask? According to Wikipedia, “caryophyllene, more formally-β-caryophyllene, is a natural bicyclic sesquiterpene that is a constituent of many essential oils, especially clove oil, the oil from the stems and flowers of Syzygium aromaticum, the essential oil of Cannabis sativa, rosemary, and hops.” And while the high you experience is attributed to THC, caryophyllene reduces the nausea it can cause and increases your appetite. That is one of the reasons for its popularity with smokers and weed users. In order to clarify everything as much as possible we’ve listed the 4 benefits and effects (which are basically the same thing here) of caryophyllene below: Anti-tumor – due to its use as an enhanced anti-inflammatory, caryophyllene might also serve as an anti-tumor by increasing anti-metastatic activity of cancer cells. However, researchers have warned that only single cells were tested and that additional testing may be required to determine how caryophyllene will affect malignant, high mass tumoral growth. Anti-inflammatory – recent studies involving the use of caryophyllene to treat just about everything from allergies to osteoarthritis have shown that it may one day contribute to the management and treatment of certain chronic inflammatory diseases. It should be noted that the research was conducted with higher caryophyllene levels than what someone is likely to experience in a smoking session. Antioxidant – one of the more beneficial effects of caryophyllene is that it can act as an antioxidant. These are chemicals that help remove the cell-damaging or aging and illness causing unstable atoms (“free radicals”) from the body. Caryophyllene may have a use as an anti-aging lotion and a sunscreen additive. Sedative – marijuana’s sedative nature and its ability to contribute to sleep is a well-known side effect of high-THC strains. Recent research has indicated that extremely high doses of caryophyllene might have sedative effects on lab mice. Once again, more research about this is warranted. However, one can readily see how even the smallest amount of caryophyllene combined with CBD’s and THC’s sedative characteristics could contribute to a person’s desire to sleep. Interestingly enough, caryophyllene will not get you high by itself. Consuming THC is the only way that a person can experience the effects of smoking weed. The problem is, unless you buy some type of caryophyllene extract or a high-CBD or a lower THC strain there’s no other way that you can consume one substance without the other item. We have experts that can help you or your may connect with your friends to enjoy a smoke.

The Meaning behind 710-Friendly

Just like everything else in the Cannabis Community, the first part of your path to getting educated involves understanding marijuana jargon. Most weed-related terminologies are a sort of code used by stoners in days gone by so they could talk openly about smoking marijuana without the fear of recrimination for doing something illegal. So, to put it simply, these weed-related terminologies were born out of necessity. Cannabis users had to find a way that they could communicate among themselves without cops, parents, principals, or teachers knowing what they were talking about. “710” is the special Code for Extracts or Concentrates As the name implies, “concentrates” are the concentrated version of the original bud. Through the solvent extraction process the trichomes and other chemical elements that comprise the medicinal and psychoactive components of marijuana plants are stripped away from the plant itself. Once the stripping process is finished, the cannabinoids (CBD, CBG, CBN, and THC), flavonoids, terpenes, and a more potent concentrate is all that’s left from the original bud.Concentrates can come in a broad range of different forms including Budder, Crumble, Honeycomb, Shatter, and Wax. However, the base component of all of these is the oil that comes from the extraction process. Consequently, the term “oil” is commonly used as a blanket or umbrella terminology that refers to the consumption of cannabis by “cold start dabbing”, “regular dabbing”, or smoking these concentrates in other forms. All of this eventually gave way to the birth of a new cannabis subculture of 710 friendly.(Hint: By writing the word oil on a piece of paper and turning it 180°, the word “oil” becomes “710”.) What do We mean by 710-Friendly? Simply stated, 710-friendly means that oil, as well as its consumption methods and its different byproducts are welcome in certain areas. Thus, if you see a sign on your local dispensary’s door that says “710” or “710-Friendly, this indicates they sell concentrates and the aficionados thereof are encouraged to shop there. Keep in mind that the slogan isn’t reserved exclusively for dispensaries. You can find it on bumper stickers, caps, and t-shirts as well. You’ll even find 710-friendly tags on social media platforms.Regardless of where you encounter the terms “oil”, “710”, or “710-friendly”, it just emphasizes the fact that consuming cannabis concentrates is one of the most current industry trends. For more information on this topic, you can do a Google search which will yield hundreds of results. Additionally, if you are looking to buy smoking accessories, pipes, bongs or beakers, select from our product range online.

4 Facts every Woman should know about Positive Impact of Smoking Weed on their Health

Over the past couple of decades, the number of female cannabis users has been steadily increasing. In fact, according to an NBC News report, the fastest growing group of legal weed consumers is Gen Z women. In fact, Forbes Magazine reported that females account for 70% to 80% consumer power in the economy today. What does this mean? It means that an increasing number of females are responsible for how their households spend money and many of them are using that power to buy cannabis.Many women are already familiar with the medical benefits of cannabis use including helping to relax and unwind after a stressful day on the job, improving sleep cycles, and relieving anxiety and pain. But what about their health? Women’s health typically takes a back seat where other health topics are concerned as well as in medical circles where the issues below are typically glanced over. The following is a list of 4 facts that every woman should know about how smoking marijuana can affect certain health issues:Cannabis helps to alleviate menstrual cramps – many women suffer with severe menstrual cramps and often have to miss school or work. For women with suffering with conditions such as endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), CBD and THC can help with this issue. Recent studies have shown that THC contains nearly 20 times the anti-inflammation qualities as aspirin or Ibuprofen. Thus, smoking a natural herb would help reduce your pain during those specific days. Cannabis helps with postpartum depression – roughly 600,000 US women suffer with postpartum depression. While it is often brushed off as the “baby blues”, it’s a debilitating condition that doctors overlook and under-diagnose. Cannabis actually helps to alleviate these symptoms. Whether you prefer CBD or THC, there are products available on the market that can help new moms.Cannabis is an all-natural aphrodisiac – you can throw away the oysters and make way for cannabis: the natural aphrodisiac that you’ll enjoy. There are literally hundreds if not thousands of articles regarding the relationship between cannabis and improved sex. In a Journal of Sexual Medicine, statistics from a study show that women who smoke weed have sexual intercourse up to 20% more than those who don’t partake.Women get high faster than men – a University of Washington study found that women are more sensitive to cannabis than men. When female rats were administered THC, they had a much lower tolerance for weed’s psychoactive effects than men. As a result, they get high faster. Thus, even though the amount they smoke or intake is less, the hits are better. For more information on this topic, contact Tank Glass today at (323)-364-7952.
