How Does Delta-9 THC Differ from Delta-8 THC?

Several months back, a new cannabinoid was introduced to the cannabis marketplace, although many individuals are unaware of this newcomer. Even veteran smokers who smoke every day may not be able to tell you what Delta-8 THC does. Delta-9 THC is the chemical that gives you the classic cannabis “high” and has a chemical structure that is similar to Delta-8 THC. Since they’re both derived from the Sativa family, it’s no wonder that they’re easily confused with one another. In order to understand these two varieties, it’s important to have a better understanding of what THC is. THC stands for “tetrahydrocannabinol”, the chemical in marijuana that gives it its psychoactive and psychological effects. Furthermore, it is one of several compounds that are found in the resins secreted by the marijuana plant’s glands. THC acts in similar fashion to the cannabinoid chemicals produced naturally by our bodies and can affect our coordination, memory, pleasure, thinking, and time perception. What is Delta-9 THC? Delta-9 THC is the compound responsible for that provides that outstanding cannabis high by affecting the CB and CB2 receptors in the central nervous system (CNS). Stimulation of these receptors causes the endocannabinoid system (ECS) to influence our moods and the way we control hunger, experience different emotions, and react to pain. Delta-9 THC is what gives cannabis its potency.In lower doses, Delta-9 THC offers therapeutic benefits such as improved sleep habits, mood improvement, and muscle relaxation. However, when consumed in higher doses, the psychoactive properties of Delta-9 THC and lead to anxiety, euphoria, increased heart rate, and several other similar symptoms. So despite the fact that Delta-9 THC is safe and non-toxic, you should be aware of your proper does and not exceed that. What is Delta-8 THC? Delta-8 THC is also a cannabinoid found in the marijuana plant. However, it’s also found in industrial hemp plants. It provides the same beneficial properties of THC only without the overs-stimulating effects caused by Delta-9 THC. And while Delta-8 THC is less potent, it can be found in full spectrum CBD products such as CBD concentrate and CBD oil. You can find a variety of products that have various amounts of CBD for your requirement. When the two are combined, they can provide healing and therapeutic properties such as improved mood and overall relaxation. You’ll often find Delta-8 THC in a broad range of products due do its therapeutic, uplifting properties. Additionally, it is legal in most states.

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 support@tankglass.us 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.

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.

The best Fertilizers and Nutrients for Your Marijuana Plants

Rookie marijuana growers tend to focus primarily of factors such as lighting set-ups, plant strain, and the soil. However, the type of fertilizer used and the nutrients you feed them are equally as important. When you fertilize your plants, you want to focus on feeding the soil, not the plants. Every plant’s success is determined by the soil they’re living in. Although light and water are critical elements, it’s what you put into the soil that will determine the results. Sunlight is an important component of ensuring that the plants get enough natural light. Healthy marijuana plants require a fertilizer that contains nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium in order to produce higher flower yields and have strong roots. These 3 elements will be represented by the letters “NPK” on the packaging. However, these aren’t the only ingredients in a good marijuana fertilizer. Your plants will also need micronutrients such as calcium, magnesium, sulfur, and a handful of others. Here is what the 3 primary nutrients provide your plants:   Nitrogen – not only is nitrogen important for leaf growth, it’s essential to every organic lifeform on the planet. It’s also vital to chlorophyll production which stimulates the process of photosynthesis and a key component of amino acids. Marijuana plants require nitrogen throughout their life cycle. Just as humans require protein for energy and to maintain healthy muscle mass, plants need nitrogen in order to produce strong branches, leaves, roots, and stalks. Phosphorus – this nutrient helps to strengthen the structure of the plant by creating strong buds and roots. Phosphorus is also required for metabolism, photosynthesis, and the intake of other nutrients. Basically, it enables a plant to achieve its genetic integrity reach its maximum potential. Like nitrogen, phosphorus is required during a marijuana plants entire life cycle. However, it plays an even more significant role in the plant’s flowering stage. Potassium – cannabis plants require extra doses of this nutrient during the flowering stage. In some respects, it is like the plant’s immune system. Potassium helps the plant produce chunky, fully developed buds. In addition to promoting larger bud size, it protects the plant from disease and infection while strengthening plant tissue and using water more efficiently. Potassium is a mobile nutrient like nitrogen and phosphorus. In other words, it can take it from older growth and direct it towards new growth. Keep in mind that the type of fertilizer you choose for your cannabis plants will depend on your growing medium. And when it is about smoking weed, you need the best bongs and beakers. At our website, you can browse a huge collection of eclectic range of smoking devices. For more information, e-mail your questions to Tank Glass at support@tankglass.us.

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 support@tankglass.com.

3 Best Nutrients for growing Cannabis

In some cases, rookie cannabis growers tend to focus on certain growing aspects such as lighting set-ups, soil, and strain. However, the type of nutrients you feed your plants is also just as important. Naturally every grower, whether they’re a long-term grower or novice, wants plants that are healthy and productive. Consequently, feeding them the best nutrients is one way you can accomplish that goal. Healthy marijuana plants need a fertilizer that contains 3 important elements or nutrients: nitrogen (N) phosphorus (P) potassium (K) The combination of these nutrients is often represented on the fertilizer label as NPK. So if you’ve been wondering what that 3-letter combination means, now you know. Nitrogen is essential for leafy growth, Phosphorus contributes to bud and root growth, and Potassium promotes flower development. When given to your plants, these essential nutrients positively impact your plant’s overall growth in the following ways: Nitrogen – this nutrient is vital to the production of chlorophyll which in turn spurns photosynthesis. It’s also a key component of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. Basically, nitrogen is essential to every organic lifeform on the planet. As a result, cannabis plants must be fed nitrogen throughout their life cycle. Just as humans must have protein to build and maintain muscle mass, cannabis plants need it in order to build strong branches, leaves, roots, and stalks. Phosphorus – in order to develop strong buds and roots that help strengthen plant structure, cannabis plants must be feed phosphorus to help them attain genetic integrity and reach its fullest potential. Although cannabis plants must have phosphorus during their entire life cycles, it is most important during the flowering stage. By maintaining adequate phosphorus levels, your cannabis plants will have a solid root system and be strong and vibrant as well. Potassium – the immune system of a cannabis plant is based on this nutrient. Plants usually demand higher doses of potassium during the flowering stage in order to create chunkier, well-developed buds. In addition to increasing bud size, potassium helps the plants use water more efficiently, protects them from disease and infection, and strengthens plant tissue. Potassium is considered a “mobile” in much the same way as nitrogen and phosphorus. In other words, you can take potassium from the old growth and redirect towards the new growth. Without this nutrient, stems will be weaker and you’ll have a dramatically lower yield.

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.
