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.

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.

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.

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.

6 Types of Materials used to manufacture Bongs

There literally thousands of bongs available on the market today. Cheap and expensive bongs, fancy and plain bongs; the supply is endless. But what characteristics define their quality and how well they perform when using them? In most cases, it has a lot to do with the material they’re manufactured from. However, there are certain drawbacks to be aware of with some materials and others that we would personally recommend for your smoking pleasure. We’ve listed the 6 most common manufacturing materials below with the reasons why some should be avoided and others are recommended: Acrylic – this is hands down, the worst material to use when manufacturing a bong. It can’t be cleaned thoroughly, it’s not good for flavor, it’s not heat-resistant, and it’s very unhealthy to smoke out of. The only real benefit to acrylic bongs is how cheap they are. Borosilicate – as a runner-up for best bong material, borosilicate bongs are made using boric acid which increases acid resistance and strength. They are also the better choice where repeated heating and cooling applications are concerned. Ceramic – before glass bongs became so popular, this was the original art bong. Many ceramic bongs were manufacture in a variety of forms such as skulls and wizards. While this type offers a better smoking experience, glass bongs will outlast them. Plus, they have a metal bowl which isn’t the ideal choice for flavor or a person’s health. Glass – as one of the two best bongs you can smoke from, glass bongs are usually manufactured from one of two kinds of glass – 1) borosilicate or hard glass and 2) soda lime glass or soft glass. These are most hygienic, clean and hard glass beakers and bongs that are the preferred medium of use. Metal – if you want to sneak a quick tote, the thermos style bong is probably your best choice. Unfortunately, the porosity of metal makes it difficult to get fully cleaned after use. Therefore, this is not the best candidate for repeated use. Silicone – although silicone bongs are difficult to break and temperature-resistant, they’re typically made in China out of polysiloxane rubber, a material that doesn’t hold up to repeated cleanings. The more you clean them, the more porous the material gets, causing it to trap carbon, resins, and eventually mold. Another durable choice is soda lime or soft glass bongs. These bongs tend to be heavier because of the thickness of the glass. Although this is also a great choice, the borosilicate bong still has the edge because of its strength.

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.
