Organic Vs. Hydroponic Grows – What’s the Difference?

CANNABIS CULTURE – Growing organic Cannabis is a hard enough skill to master, then when you learn about hydroponics and the more complex method of growing with an inert medium, you begin to understand how plants truly function. Below is better explained the differences between growing organically and growing with a hydroponic system, as well as the pros and cons to each.

Growing With Organics

A rich organic medium will promote healthy roots

Usually the starting point for all Cannabis growers and the most traditional way to grow. What is great about growing with organics is that the plants use a buffering zone to absorb the nutrients. This means that as a new grower, you will have some time before signs of overfeeding or underfeeding occur. What is also great about organics is that as long as your plants have access to all the primary nutrients and trace elements, as we would have a full fridge of food, then you can safely feed water that is the correct pH for the plants. Cannabis plants prefers a pH of 5.5-6.5 in order to coast along the fine line of nutrients. Plants will struggle to absorb trace elements above pH 7.5.

78-Year-Old Man Evicted For Using Medical Marijuana

The sun sets early up in Niagara Falls, New York, this time of year. And by the time a city marshal finished reading 78-year-old John Flickner his eviction order, streetlights were just starting to flicker on. Holding a plastic freezer bag containing his medical prescriptions, Flickner, who’s confined to a wheelchair, left his HUD-subsidized apartment and took an elevator down to the lobby while a Niagara Towers custodian changed the locks on the door.

As the dark crept over the icy, 28-degree day, Flickner pondered where he would go—and how he would get there. Flickner had some help from friends, who eventually found him a place to stay. But no one could find a vehicle large enough to carry him and his wheelchair there. With no other options, Flickner powered up his motorized wheelchair, left his former Niagara Towers home behind and rolled through a supermarket parking lot, across a busy road and down the sidewalk to the Niagara Gospel Rescue Mission homeless shelter.

California Officials Say Cannabis Deliveries Can Be Made Anywhere, Even in Cities Where Marijuana is Banned

California’s Bureau of Cannabis Control said on Friday that marijuana deliveries can be made anywhere in the state, even in localities that ban marijuana businesses.

The issue has been one of the most debated issues as state regulators hammer out permanent rules for how marijuana is grown, tested, packaged and delivered, reports the Associated Press. Law enforcement groups and the California League of Cities opposed the move.

The delivery issue was included in regulations drafted by the Bureau of Cannabis Control, which issues most retail permits. The rules will become law in 30 days unless California’s Office of Administrative Law objects.

The bureau has maintained that Proposition 64 allows for statewide deliveries. It added explicit language authorizing the practice after several law enforcement officials in anti-cannabis locales insisted they could arrest licensed deliver drivers in cities and counties that ban marijuana.

Supporters of statewide deliveries argued that sick and frail people in those areas who depend on marijuana to relieve pain or anxiety cannot make a lengthy drive for a purchase, so they are being shut out of the legal market.

California Cannabis Industry Association spokesman Josh Drayton said most California cities and counties have exerted local control and

Aspiring ‘Craft’ Cannabis Producers Running Into Unexpected Roadblocks

Yan Boissonneault’s daughter was turning blue.

Without warning, his baby had stopped breathing, and he frantically performed CPR while his friend James Gallagher called 911.

Years later, the men still become emotional remembering that day. Boissonneault learned that his daughter had a rare disorder that caused epilepsy, and when pharmaceutical medications failed to cure her seizures, he turned to CBD oil, a non-psychoactive substance in marijuana.

“It’s been two years now and she hasn’t had a seizure,” Boissonneault said, standing next to rows of pungent marijuana plants under glowing white lights. “That’s what got me involved in this. It’s quite personal. … The only profit it gives me is the joy of seeing my daughter smile.”
