  1. I found someones plot today I'm sure! I was out "walking my invisible dog" when I came across it. There was about 30 holes all dug out. I searched the area and found a spade, some bags of manure, chicken wire and half a bottle of Lucozade lol. If this is a guerilla grower preparing for this season then I'm not sure what to do? I personally think this area is way too easy to come across and wouldn't bother if it was me. Advice lads?? Provocateur.
  2. just seen this in today's paper
  3. Hi folks, Daily mail at it again The comments give hope though Cannabis oil sold as a health product in Britain can get users 'high', study finds Researchers found driving under the influence of CBD cannabis ‘may be harmful' The products have soared in popularity amid claims they help combat ailments The legal version of cannabis sold as a health product in the UK can get users ‘high’ and even make it dangerous to drive, a study has found. Cannabis oils and capsules said to help reduce anxiety and pain are on sale in high street stores including Holland & Barrett and are used by more than 250,000 Britons. They are sold legally because they contain no more than 0.2 per cent of the mind-altering substance tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is found in the illegal version of the drug. But now scientists have found that the active ingredient in these products, cannabidiol (CBD), is also psychoactive. In the study, subjects used a vape to inhale different strains of cannabis. Those using the version containing CBD but not illegal THC reported levels of intoxication three times that of those who used only a placebo. In addition, experts said subjects felt detached from reality. Scientists from Wollongong University in Australia concluded that driving under the influence of CBD cannabis ‘may be harmful’. The finding comes amid calls for the form of cannabis containing THC to also be legalised for medicinal and recreational purposes. Last night, Tory MP Craig Mackinlay, chairman of an All- Party Parliamentary Group investigating the effects of cannabis on the brain, said: ‘This is a startling revelation. For many years we have been told that THC was the key cause of cognitive issues stemming from cannabis, and that CBD held the “holy grail” of benefits. ‘These studies show that it is far more complex than simply isolating a few inherent compounds. Cannabis in its raw form contains more than 400 chemicals, so how long will it be until the next cure-all is miraculously discovered by pro-legalisers, only to be put down by science once again? ‘It is high time for there to be a full scientific investigation into the harmful effects of cannabis and its chemical compounds to put this misinformation to rest once and for all.’ Almost £6 million of CBD health supplements were sold last year. The products cost up to £60 and have soared in popularity amid claims that they help combat anxiety, insomnia and muscle and joint pain. There is also an emerging market of recreational CBD cannabis. Globally, CBD cannabis is expected to be worth almost £2 billion by next year, with dozens of companies poised to invest in the burgeoning industry. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6712725/amp/Legal-cannabis-oil-sold-British-health-shops-users-high-study-shows.html
  4.

  5. Hi Novel FAAH Inhibitor May Reduce Cannabis Withdrawal Symptoms in Men The investigational fatty acid amide hydrolase inhibitor (FAAH) PF-04457845 may decrease cannabis withdrawal symptoms and dependence in men, according to phase 2 study results published in Lancet Psychiatry. Researchers conducted a double-blind placebo-controlled parallel group trial of 46 men between age 18 and 55 who were diagnosed with cannabis dependence using Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition (DSM-IV) criteria. Study patients were randomly assigned in a 2:1 ratio to receive either 4 mg daily of PF-04457845 or placebo by means of a fixed block size of 6 patients, stratified according to degree and willingness to cease cannabis use. The co-primary end points were the difference in withdrawal symptoms after 4 weeks of therapy in addition to self-reported cannabis use and urine THC-COOH measures. After statistical analysis, the investigators found that compared with placebo therapy with PF-04457845 was associated with a significant reduction in cannabis withdrawal and accompanying mood symptoms (mean symptom score difference, 4.96; 95% CI, 0.71-9.21; P =.048) after treatment day 1. In addition, participants in the PF-04457845 arm saw a significant reduction in self-reported cannabis use after 4 weeks of treatment (mean joints per day difference, 0.88; 95% CI, 0.29-1.46; P =.0003) and lower urinary THC-COOH concentrations (mean difference of 657.92 ng/mL; 95% CI, 17.55-767.18; P =.009) . The primary study limitation was the enrollment of only male patients, which limited the generalizability of results. https://www.psychiatryadvisor.com/addiction/investigational-faah-inhibitor-may-reduce-cannabis-withdrawal-symptoms-in-men/article/825448/ Bongme
  6. Hi guys! I am new here and entered by all my doubts about cannabis, I currently live in London, but I am Spanish I want you to forgive my language, good greetings to all!
  7. Hi guys, so im doing some fastbuds auto flowers and everything seemed to be running completely fine. I did a foliar spray with 1ltr warm water to 2ml neem oil 1 teaspoon of dish soap. stupidly enough i did the spray whilst the lights was still on without thinking about the leafs maybe dehydrating or burning under the lights. The following next morning i came back to my girls looking like they're on deaths door. can anyone clarify what i did here.. whether i burnt them or its a deficiency which im not picking up as a first time grower. Im running, just normal compost soil with a 400w hps light, biobizz grom and bloom. 60/40 soil to perlite. I thought maybe over watering as my leafs are really drooping. just any advice would be lovely! they've been like this for about 2-3 days now. they've carried on growing in height but doesnt look like the leafs are repairing also struggling to upload my photos -.-
  8. Hi everyone, I recently directed a project at an event in parliament where patients spoke about how cannabis helps them, along with a quick update from the United Patients Alliance. Thought this community may appreciate it. Positive vibes, Mike.
  9. So here maybe a new idea for you all. ive come across something called the Kratky method. A hydroponics system with is just a bucket filled with water and a basket In the lid filled with perlite. Plant in the middle add nutes to water and grow outside. And it works! People have mentioned that stem rot and things would be likely but from what I’ve seen it works amazing and the buds come out beautiful. gas anyone else done this or is it just a lucky break he had? Also thing for Guerilla Growing purposes it’s amazing. Hang a bucket in a tree with an auto.
  10. Hi everyone from UK420, I am just a freshie here but been a long time lurker. I thought it was about time I joined so I can contribute to the forums finally. Keen to see what interesting characters I'll meet through these boards so say hi and be nice Have a good one everyone!
  11. Cannabis is now a billions and billions of monetary commodity. Thank you for letting me be an member here. Sites like this are setting the groundwork for future cannabis farming and information
  12. Anyone tell me if this light "LED Grow Light, 600W Dual Chips Full Specturn Grow Lamp Red Blue Plant Light for Indoor/Garden/Hydronics/Vegetable/Flowers Growth,UK Plug(10W leds)" on amazon will do for 2 plants?
  13. Hello I have recently come across the new idea for Guerilla Growing. I have seen people are growing in the top of trees. Such an amazing idea. I just wanted to ask has anyone done this in the uk? Any advice and mistakes that can be minimised? And also do I still need to protect from slugs? I will be surrounding the plant with a bet for birds but I’m not sure what pests need to be worried about up trees
  14. My daughter shared this with me, as she is following Jeff Ditchfield and Bud Buddies (as I don't facebook).
  15. If you had the chance to help legalisation of cannabis what would you want in/not home growing of 12 plants, ban on strong skunk, would you want it sold in shops with edibles,

  18. Hey y'all. I have a question to everyone who travels and consumes cannabis and has insomnia. I was recently traveling to a country where cannabis is still not legal, so had to face my insomnia, a thing that I forgot about ever since I started using cannabis. I think the SPAM link removed I was struggling with, were enormous. And when I had to travel for a longer period and not have cannabis on my way, my insomnia was again torturing me. Is there any idea of what I can do in those cases? Has anyone tried using yoga? Or do you have any other ideas?
  19. What i don't gree with is to stigmatize cannabis and label it as something that doesn't make you "sleep at night" with a clear conscience and producing wine is a good thing. We all know that alcohol is responsible for more deaths than cannabis every year. So i don't understand and don't agree with those who want to demonize a plant. Alcohol intoxicates as much as cannabis do. So why cannabis is "bad" and alcohol is "good"?
  20. Seems like some1 got close to the real thing! Check this out! The colour is amazing! https://www.maxim.com/maxim-man/weed-wine-2016-10
  21. Hi everyone. Searched google for a nice place to chat and discuss and you came highly recommended. Not had too much time to read much on here but wow seems like a great place to soak up the info I'm from the UK and just started my grow about a week ago. Still in the process of finishing off my box but my two babies (Cookies Kush/Barneys) and Kushberry (DNA) are being looked after at a friends. Been thinking of growing for years, even when I lived in sunny Spain, I just never got round to doing it. Finally took the plunge. (Am I allowed to post photos?) If your reading this then thanks for taking the time. Hi and hope to chat soon.
  22. Case Reports: Cannabinoids Improve Speech In Patients With Tourette Syndrome Hannover, Germany: The daily administration of cannabinoids is associated with improved speech fluency in patients with Tourette Syndrome (TS), according to a pair of case reports published in The International Journal of Molecular Sciences. A pair of researchers from the Hannover Medical School in Germany assessed the impact of daily cannabinoid treatment in two TS patients with treatment-resistant vocal blocking tics. One patient underwent therapy utilizing THC-dominant whole-plant cannabis. The other utilized dronabinol (oral THC). In both cases, authors reported that treatment resulted in "significant improvement not only of simple and complex motor and vocal tics, but also in the overall symptomology including comorbid conditions and most importantly significantly improved patients' quality of life including their social contacts and performance at school without side effects." They concluded, "[C]annabis-based medicine appears to be effective in treatment-resistant TS patients with vocal blocking tics." Prior studies and case reports have similarly demonstrated that the administration of either inhaled cannabis or oral synthetic THC is associated with substantial improvements in TS-related symptoms. sauce
  23. Hi there, pretty new to growing, but I know how to, but usually I just stick to autos. I am growing this Purple Bud strain from SensiSeeds and I am having a few problems with it. I have noticed my leaves looked kind of krinkled and shiny just in the krinkled bits. They are canoeing (this has got better over the days as I started flushing) and I have notices these yellow marks on the leaves (In pictures) and I have seen 3 tiny holes in 3 of my leaves. Also the plant is 4 weeks old and it's quite short and very very bush and stubby with the thickest stem I've ever seen on a plant this old. I was just wondering whether the stubbiness size, bushiness and thickness of this strain is normal? How can I treat the leaves? And also, When should I switch to 12/12? I'll try and upload some photos via another website and enter the URL here. Thank you.

  25. Just thought I would share this here as I'm sure a few people will find this very interesting and informative. enjoy Phylos Galaxy Phylos has the world’s largest database of cannabis DNA featuring the genetic identity of thousands of varieties from over 80 countries. The Phylos Galaxy is a 3D population genetics visualization of this data, offering the public unprecedented scientific insight into varieties that, until now, have only been categorized by street names. Anyone can submit a variety to the Galaxy with Phylos Genotype, a DNA sequencing test that offers permanent placement in the Galaxy, a “living” digital genetic report that updates in real time, and digital marketing tools to share your exciting varieties with the world. The Cannabis Evolution Project The Cannabis Evolution Project was a two-year collaboration with Rob Desalle, a curator and phylogeneticist at the American Museum of Natural History. Thousands of ancient and modern cannabis samples were collected from around the world, and serve as the foundation for the Galaxy you see today. We’re still working hard to tell the evolutionary story of this diverse and amazing plant. How does it work? Each node, or star, in the Phylos Galaxy represents a single cannabis plant. The distances between nodes show how similar they are. The lines show how related they are. Samples that share a lot of genetic variants will be very close, and different genetic populations are represented by colors. How did you make the Galaxy? We sequenced the DNA of over a thousand cannabis plants and compared them. We mapped those relationships into three dimensions using Principal Components Analysis, a well-established technique in the field of population genetics. We combined this approach with other statistical genetics methods that generate “heredity lines” connecting closely related samples. Then, we made an interactive visualization. These techniques have never before been used to visualize a single species. Why is Phylos sequencing the DNA of different Cannabis varieties? We want to know how Cannabis has evolved, what its history was like, and how it has co-evolved with humans. We want to know what domestication does to the shape of evolution, and to better understand the complex diversity of hybrid strains. We’re investigating where they came from, why they’re so different, and what makes each one unique. And most importantly, we want consumers and patients to finally know what they’re getting and be able to find it again without relying on inaccurate names. http://www.phylosbioscience.com/the-phylos-galaxy/
