  1. Hey up lads, I have seen quite a few people on here use the eco technics fan controller and I am in desperate need of help. basically I have been using it with out any problems with a system air rvk. Working perfectly great piece of equipment. anyway got some cash so thought I would treat me and the ladies to a new silenced fan which has more power than the rvk and obviously is quite as hell. anyway did the set up on the fans and I though it was working perfectly, so here’s the problem it runs well on the min fan speed but when it changes to full power (80% in this case) and corrects the temps/humidity and switches back to min, the fan still runs at full power even tho it’s suppose to be on minimum. it’s driving me crazy as if I’m out one day and it does this and I’m not there to correct it, it could mess shit up. any help or insights are much appreciated. I also reset the controller back to default to see if this corrects but it hasn’t

  4. 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.
  5. Hi guys n gals how's it going? Good that's what I like to hear Welcome to Dinafems 2017 outdoor grow competition! First of all I'd like to say a big thank-you to @Dinafem-Mark & @Dinafem Seeds for running this competition for us lot again and an even bigger thanks for picking me as a competitor, you can't beat a bit of competition it's what drives us to push things to their full potential. The two strains I've chosen for this competition are the highly spoken White Widow XXL Autoflowerer and the O.G. Kush Photoperiod. Here's a bit of information about the two strains off the Dinafem Website I hope to have more information regarding how they fair in the UK climate come the end of the season. The O.G. Kush is being germinated on 4/20 as I believe it to be good luck and the White Widow's are being started at a later date because I wan't to push them to their full potential. White Widow XXL - Autoflower Suitable for: Indoors and outdoors Sex : Feminized autoflowering Genotype: Indica dominant Cross: White Widow elite clone x White Widow Auto Comprehensive life cycle: 80 days Outdoor harvest time: April-October Indoor yield: 400-450 g/m2 Outdoor yield: 60-170 g/plant THC: High O.G. Kush - Photoperiod Suitable for: Indoors and outdoors Sex: Feminized Genotype: 25% Sativa/ 75% Indica Cross: Lemon Thai/Pakistani x Chemdawg Indoor flowering period: 55 days Outdoor harvest time: Early/Mid-October Indoor yield: 550 g/m2 Outdoor yield: 1100 g/plant Outdoor height: Up to 3 m THC: Very high (up to 24%) That's all for now folks, Pictures of the plot and germination process to follow. May the growing commence!

    From the album moon rocks

    The finest Girls Scout Cookies buds, dipped in CO2 hash oil, and then rolled in sicdust ( kief ). Kurupts Moonrock is very powerful medical marijuana product – as they call “The strongest bud in your galaxy”. They have taken an Girl Scout Cookies bud and dipped it into high gear with the hash oil and kief This process leads the product to carry 51.2% THC rating. In small doses this is effective in pain reduction, stimulating appetite and nausea reduction. The product also boasts a .15% CBD rating which can combat pain, anxiety and other medical conditions. For the best taste and smoke, it is recommended to use a hash bowl or pipe, along with not breaking down the bud with a grinder as you will lose most of the kief in that process and left sticky oil in your grinder
  8. Ingredients and equipment First of all, you will need about half a gram of weed for each cracker you will make. Figure out how many crackers you expect to make and acquire the right amount of weed accordingly. Secondly, you will need Ritz crackers, Saltine crackers, Jacobs crackers, or some other similar type of cracker that go well with peanut butter. Now for the peanut butter: you should make sure that it is a type of peanut butter that has plenty of peanut oil. It should be non-hydrogenated as well. Unfortunately, Jif and Skippy brands of peanut butter do not have enough peanut oil in them — and that means they won’t work for this recipe. Go for another brand. You can also use Nutella or a chocolate spread instead of peanut butter if you prefer. Crunchy peanut butter is also perfectly fine to use. Next, you will need an item to mix together your peanut butter and the marijuana. This should be something small, like a toothpick. You should also have scissors of some sort or else a coffee grinder on hand to cut up the marijuana with. Make sure there’s enough tin foil to cover and store the crackers when they’re done. Finally, you will also need an oven. How to make firecrackers First, you will need to bake your marijuana. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. While you wait for it to heat up, take scissors and cut up the marijuana into tiny pieces. A coffee grinder will also do the job thoroughly and quickly; the finer the pieces of marijuana, the better it will work for your weed peanut butter crackers. Once the oven is ready, you can put your marijuana inside a tin foil bowl of sorts to hold the marijuana. Leave it in for about a quarter of an hour, then check on the weed. If it is extremely powdery or dusty, they have been baked for the perfect amount. Baking your marijuana is a highly important part of creating a weed firecracker. The reason for this is that it needs to be decarboxylated. Decarboxylation means that the THCA turns into THC. This can only occur when the marijuana is dried out enough — this drying process is accomplished through baking the weed. This process automatically happens when you smoke or vaporize marijuana since it is heated up enough for the decarboxylation process to take place. If you forget to bake your marijuana, you won’t feel a thing from your peanut butter pot cookies, so be sure not to forget. The next thing you should do is turn up the oven to approximately 300 degrees Fahrenheit, then wait for ten to fifteen minutes. Put a thick layer peanut butter (regular peanut butter without any weed yet) on both sides of each cracker (up to a centimeter). Then take your freshly baked marijuana and sprinkle it on half of the peanut butter crackers. Leave the other half for sandwiching it later. Take your toothpick or other mixing tool and mix the peanut butter with the marijuana, doing so as thoroughly as possible on top of the cracker. You want as much weed as you can to touch peanut butter. When you’re done with that, sandwich the crackers together and wrap them up in tin foil. Place the wrapped up peanut butter weed crackers onto a cookie sheet and into the oven and bake them for 20 minutes. Once the twenty minutes have passed, up the heat level to about 350 degrees Fahrenheit and leave it for another two minutes. Remove the freshly baked weed peanut butter cookies from the oven and set them to the side until they have cooled off. Now you are free to enjoy your delicious marijuana firecrackers!

  9. The website is new and It's like imdb but the layout was very well done. You can review movies with a score out of 10 and a score of how high you were when you watched it from sober to "andromeda". The guy is still updating and you can suggest ideas by messaging him on his feedback forum on the bottom right corner. He already planned one out from someone else's idea which you can see in his forum and he's actually going to start improving the site right now so hopefully it's updated soon. Check it out guys (Spam removed)

  13. Cannabis plants, snake venom, and snail venom are just some of the interesting sources drug developers have used to create these nine drugs Every sector relies on innovation to grow to some extent, but it's possibly the most vital component to success in the biotech sector. Biopharmaceutical companies don't have the luxury of simply sitting on their laurels and living off of the residual income of branded drugs due to the relatively short lifetime of most issued drug patents and an ever-growing competitive field of prospective companies. This means that biopharma companies literally live and die by innovation. Source: AstraZeneca. What investors should understand is that innovation in the biotech sector comes in a number of forms. Sometimes it involves collaborations between small and large drug developers while other forms of collaboration come internally in the form of new treatment platforms. Examples of these new treatments include the recent focus on cancer immunotherapies that work by retraining the body's immune system to recognize and attack cancer cells, as well as antibody-drug conjugates which latch a chemotherapy toxin on an antibody through a linker, which then releases that toxin when it comes into contact with a specific protein signature from the targeted cancer cells. Long story short, innovation is paramount to biopharmaceutical success. But, beyond just looking at different treatment pathways, biopharmaceutical companies are also looking at unique ways they can utilize new compounds to treat a bevy of diseases. Below are nine different therapies that biopharma companies have derived from some of the unlikeliest of sources. Keep in mind that this out-of-the-box thinking is what can occasionally make the difference between a biopharmaceutical that will survive and one that won't. In no particular order, the nine drugs derived from the unlikeliest sources are: Source: GW Pharmaceuticals. 1. Sativex Developed by U.K.-based GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH) and currently marketed in 11 countries (not the U.S.), Sativex is one of the world's first prescription medicines derived from cannabis. GW Pharmaceuticals has identified some five dozen cannabinoids which work with the natural cannabinoid receptor system found within the human body, allowing it the possibility to regulate biologic functions through receptor control. Sativex itself is a combination of two cannabinoids (CBD and THC) and was approved to minimize the effects of spasticity in multiple sclerosis patients in select ex-U.S. countries. Within the United States it remains to be seen if Sativex will be approved, but it currently has three ongoing phase 3 trials as a treatment for cancer pain and an additional phase 3 trial beginning this year for MS spasticity. Source: Eden, Janine, and Jim, Flickr. 2. Byetta Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2005 and currently owned by AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN). Byetta is a twice-daily injection designed as an adjunct to proper diet and exercise to control blood sugar in type 2 diabetes patients. What's truly unique about Byetta is that it was derived from the saliva of the Gila monster which is a lizard found only in the Southwestern U.S. and Mexico. Although Byetta is an injection and most diabetic patients would prefer the convenience of pills, it still managed a combined $606 million in worldwide sales in 2013, up from just $223 million in the previous year. 3. Premarin Originally developed by Wyeth, which was subsequently purchased by Pfizer (NYSE: PFE), Premarin is a conjugated estrogen formulation given to women to treat symptoms of menopause, as well as treat osteoporosis following menopause. There are two particularly interesting facts about Premarin. The first is that it's derived from the urine of pregnant mares (i.e., adult female horses). The second is that despite being well beyond its patent expiration by a few decades, there is still no generic version of the therapy available. This resulted in nearly $1.1 billion in revenue for Pfizer from Premarin in 2013. 4. Heparin Heparin has been in use as an anticoagulant since the mid-1930s and can still be used in operating rooms and in intravenously infused dialysis patients to this day. To be clear, in recent years scientists have discovered a way to synthetically engineer Heparin , however, Sagent Pharmaceuticals is still manufacturing Heparin vials derived from porcine intestinal mucosa -- or in English, from pig intestines -- to this day. 5. Proferrin Manufactured by privately held Colorado Biolabs, Proferrin is an iron-supplement that Colorado Biolabs asserts is the only iron supplement in the U.S. that uses solely heme iron polypeptides. Because it's not an ionic iron it doesn't compete with other nutrients for absorption which improves total absorption rates for iron-deficient individuals. Proferrin is not affected by food intake, either. But, what's most unique about Proferrin is that it's derived from bovine (cow) hemoglobin. 6. Prialt Currently manufactured by Jazz Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: JAZZ), Prialt is a severe pain medication for sufferers of chronic conditions such as cancer that is injected directly into the fluid surrounding the spinal cord. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Prialt is that it's an identical synthetic formulation to the venom of the Conus magus snail, a sea-dwelling snail. Normally naturally occurring compounds are modified to make a drug more effective, but this was a rare instance where the sea snail venom itself was perfect just the way it was. Unfortunately for Jazz, Prialt sales were largely flat year-over-year, bumping higher to $27.1 million in fiscal 2013 from $26.7 million in 2012. Bothrops jararaca, Source: Felipe Sussekind, Wikimedia Commons. 7. Capoten Known in its multiple generic forms as captopril, this drug is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) in patients. Captopril gained FDA approval in 1981 and became the first oral angiotensin-converting-enzyme, or ACE, inhibitor. Most uniquely, though, it was developed after researching the blood pressure-dropping effects of a Brazilian pit viper (Bothrops jararaca) and developing synthetic versions of this vipers' venom which had a mimicking effect of lowering blood pressure in patients. 8. Integrilin Originally developed by Millennium Pharmaceuticals and co-promoted by Schering-Plough which are both now part of Merck (NYSE: MRK) and Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Integrilin is an injection given to patients with acute coronary syndrome to decrease the chance of a new heart attack or death, including patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. Similar to Capoten above, Integrilin was derived from mimicking the glycoprotein IIb/IIIa blocker barbourin found in the venom of the Southeastern pygmy rattlesnake. However, sales of the myocardial infarction prevention therapy have fallen in each of the past two years from $230 million in 2011 to just $186 million in 2013 according to Merck's annual reports. 9. Aggrastat Lastly, we have Aggrastat, a drug now marketed by Medicure Pharma in the U.S. and Correvio International ex-U.S., but originally developed by Merck, that's designed to reduce the rate of thrombotic cardiovascular events such as a heart attack. Similar to Integrilin above, researchers isolated and synthesized a protein found in the venom of the African saw-scaled viper (Echis carinatus) to develop this anticoagulant used to reduce the chance of a blood-clot-based CV event. http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/03/29/from-marijuana-to-snake-venom-9-drugs-derived-from.aspx A interesting Topic i think.
