Having creativity does not always mean the ability to whip out a paintbrush and to paint a masterpiece. Creativity is more about a mindset, about perceiving something in a new way. Creative people can look at something that seems ordinary and they can change it into something wonderful. They can solve problems in an innovative way. Creative people are not always born with this mindset; it can be trained and practiced- drawing from experiences in  their past. Another way that can help get the creative juices flowing is by smoking some weed.

Steve Jobs, someone with a very analytical mind, yet creative, once said, “The best way I could describe the effect of the marijuana and hashish is that it would make me relaxed and creative.” Most marijuana users would say that at some point cannabis has helped them feel more creative and view the world from a different perspective. 

So why is it that marijuana has this effect on people?  The neurons in a person’s brain process and pass along information to the rest of the brain in the form of neurotransmitters. Other intoxicants like some medications and alcohol do not contain cannabinoids like cannabis that is naturally created in the brain. The cannabinoid THC very much resembles Anandamide, a natural transmitter to the neurons in your brain. There is a break in the transference of thought after a neuron fires so that it does not overwhelm the mind and keep you calm and controlled. However, when cannabis is consumed it stops these breaks and allows ideas and the imagination to become heightened. The new thought patterns created allow for more creative thinking and a different perspective than before.

In the previous post we talked about trimming your hard earned cannabis. Now that you have beautiful nuggets to display you may also notice you have a ton of leftover trim and stems.  As the saying goes: waste not, want not, so don’t just throw out all that cannabinoid infused leftovers, use them!

The stems might not be an obvious place to go to for your kicks but they still pack a good cannabinoid profile. The more you have of them the better your chances are at making something useful out of it.

One of the most fun ways to use cannabis stems, and a sure way to entertain party guests, is to make a Green Dragon cocktail infused with cannabis. You will need a mason jar worth of marijuana stems in order to make this exotic cocktail. When your collection is complete and you have a full jar then add the strongest grain alcohol you can find; I’m talking about the rocket fuel stuff like Everclear. Fill the jar to the top with the alcohol and put it into a cool, dark place. Give the jar a shake every day. Do this for a week to let the stems get a proper soak and let the THC get drawn out of the stems with the alcohol. Pour the alcohol through a strainer to catch the little stems. Now you are ready to mix some green dragon cocktails, you can thank me later.

Trimming your marijuana harvest

Harvest time is fast approaching and no one can be happier than the grower that has spent months taking care of his green babies to produce top shelf bud.  However, the job isn’t over yet, another hurdle has to be jumped before reaping the rewards: trimming. 

Trimming is an important aspect of harvesting because it can make such a great impact on the look, potency, and smoke of the final bud. Well trimmed bud will make buyers excited and it will sell much more quickly because it is aesthetically pleasing and shows off the beauty of the bud. Badly trimmed bud does not give off a good first impression and brings down the entire quality of the bud. Poorly trimmed bud dilutes the overall potency of the flower as the less potent leaves are wrapping around the outside of the bud and smoking it will feel more harsh.

If you are simply growing a few plants for your own personal use then by all means trim, or don’t trim, to your liking. Although, if you wanted to sell some bud to a local dispensary then you should do a good job of trimming to make sure your bud looks like it belongs on the top shelf.

Why cannabis has so many different names

Marijuana is special in that it has dozens of different names for the one herb we all love. This is perfectly fine because, after all, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." One of the reasons why cannabis has been given so many names is that  different geographic locations have given it their own spin on the name. Another reason why marijuana has picked up so many names is that it was given code names to openly talk about this wonder herb when law enforcement could be lurking about. Cannabis users tend to be on the creative side so coming up with new names continuously is no chore. In this post we are going to look at some of marijuana’s diverse names and the history behind them.

The first name given to this glorious plant was cannabis. The term kánnabis was first used around 440 BC by the Ancient Greeks. The plant had always referenced to be used both medicinally and recreationally. The word “cannabis” first appeared in the Oxford dictionary in the mid-1500s. Afterwards it became the scientific name for the common hemp plant.

The word “marijuana” did not exist

In the 19th century the most common term in America used for the plant was still cannabis. The word “marijuana” did not exist. Cannabis was used in common household ailments and pharmaceutical giants used cannabis extracts in their medicines. The name “marijuana” is actually taken from Mexican Spanish. However it was not the name for the plant we smoke today. It was actually the name of a different mixture of herbs used by the Mexicans for other reasons. When there was an influx of legal Mexicans coming to America they brought their idea of smoking the plant recreationally with them. This locoweed caused quite a stir and in 1913 the first bill passed that criminalized cannabis. In a fit of rage they dubbed the plant “marijuana” and it became the Western name for the locoweed.

Over time new marijuana strains have been developed through selective breeding.  These new strains have desirable qualities and have gained popularity. Some strains are most popular because of the high THC percentage. Other strains have gained popularity because of their cultivation success rate.

Classic strain that has remained popular

OG Kush is a classic strain that has remained popular for a long time and for good reason. The origins of this strain is a mystery, however, many believe it came from a female Chemdawg plant and male Hindu Kush plant. Even the name OG Kush has been debated as to what it stands for, though, Ocean Grown is a likely candidate. You’ll easily fall for this strain from tasting its delicious pine aroma, it’s subtle lemon flavor, and fragrance of evergreen needles. You’ll be impressed with its high THC percentage and all the benefits it brings. The cerebral boost it packs is sure to help with stress, anxiety, depression, and ADHD.
