As cannabis use becomes more popular there are new statistics and facts being created continuously to show the impact marijuana has made. Some of these facts and statistics may be surprising while others you know very well as you may be included the statistic yourself.

 

Just a few months ago a poll was done by the Marist poll, funded by Yahoo News. This poll showed that more than half of American adults have tried marijuana at least once in their lives. The survey further shows that about 55 million people in the USA currently use marijuana.  That’s a whole lot of people toking in America. 35 million people use cannabis monthly, 20 million consume it yearly, and up to 78 million have tried it but are not currently using it. If you are wondering who is the majority of smokers look no further than your own parents as 54% of cannabis consumers are parents and they probably have been hiding their stash from you....

Top shelf bud is the crème de la crème of what the dispensaries have in stock.  It’s the kind of weed that you savor every puff and you avoid wasting a single leaf.  Have you ever wondered why the dispensary guys can manage to grow that level of quality weed but yours is at it’s best just ok? The fact of the matter is that anybody can grow top shelf weed. Top shelf weed growers don’t have magical fertilizers and they don’t necessarily have expensive equipment.  If you follow some simple tips your next harvest could potentially be top shelf bud.

Your plant can go through a lot in it’s life, anywhere from nutrient deficiencies or pest infestation, and by the end of it you could still get a reasonably good harvest. However, in order for your bud to truly be the good stuff it will need to avoid any major problems throughout its life cycle. Buds that have suffered from these mistakes don’t deliver on having maximum potency and the buds will not look as nice. The best way to avoid those mistakes is to have complete understanding of the basics of cannabis growing. Read up on how to avoid those mistakes before you start germinating your seeds. 

One of the most important factors of good quality bud is good quality seeds. No growing method can fix bad genetics. Clones are often not a good place to start as oftentimes you are not getting the strain that you think you are. If you want a guarantee that you are getting the strain you desire then you need to get your seeds from a seed bank. You can expect a dramatic increase in yields and a drastic improvement in quality just from getting seeds with good genetics. Even though it may cost a bit more it is worth it as you will never get top shelf bud from bagseed.

As most of you will remember it goes a bit like this: "I was gonna clean my room until I got high. I was gonna get up and find the broom but then I got high. My room still messed up and I know why (why man) - cause I got high, cause I got high, cause I high.” This fun song holds a lot of truth in it's lyrics in that cannabis can relax you, take away your anxiety, and in more extreme cases take away your cares so much that you don't get much done.  

Most cannabis users have experienced two different ends of the spectrum that marijuana produces. Sometimes it can make you feel carefree and other times it makes you paranoid.  Studies have shown cannabis to have anti-anxiety properties providing relief to those with PTSD and social anxiety. Your personal tolerance, the strain composition, pre-existing conditions, and environmental factors all play a part in whether or not you will get that happy go lucky feeling or feeling like everyone is out to get you. 

Many people today use cannabis to help them relax, but it has been used centuries ago for that very reason. In 1563 the Portuguese physician, Garcia de Orta, had said that marijuana delivers sufferers from their worries and cares....
